Revivalist is a throwback to a historic Huntsville tavern that once occupied this location and embodied the parlor culture of the era. Today, generous portions of old-time hospitality and attentive service are served with a menu that is considerably more modern—inspired by European classics and American regionalism.

    What a nice venue and beautiful decor. Probably won't bother with valet parking since it was a bit pricey since there is a parking garage right across the street and that's where they park you anyway. Our bartenders made tasty drinks and were quite friendly and the food was very good with hints that make this restaurant unique. The best part of our visit though was the service. Our server George did an outstanding job as did the others nearby and it is always a pleasure to feel so well taken care of. Great job George and we will be back again soon

    We enjoyed going for a date night! We arrived earlier than our reservation and went upstairs to the rooftop lounge and had great cocktails! Thank you Liz and Derrick for great service! Dinner was lovely + our server Mary allowed us to take it slow and enjoy our time together. She was sweet and personable. The food was nice and priced well for the quality.

    Everything was pretty good, but my wife’s steak was completely overcooked…wait staff asked if they would discount and they took off the appetizer…balancing a $9 appetizer against a $50 steak…hmmm.

    We enjoyed ourselves and my snapper was really delicious, but the menu felt very overpriced for the type of food and portion size. The charcuterie we ordered as a starter had about half a dozen items (not very high end) and only 1 small piece per person. Not up to par as compared to other restaurants in the area.

    Drinks and meals are a bit pricey, but The food and service was great, so no issues there. Only issue was they do not have a corking fee and will not let you bring in your own wine. Manager said it was against Alabama State Law. Told him he was the only restaurant downtown who had that issue, not Cotton Row, not Purveyor, not the Bottle, he said they were all breaking the law. I call BS So if you are in the habit of bringing a good bottle and paying a corking fee, this is not the place for you.

    We were disappointed as we booked birthday dinner on overnight stay. The first impression was ambience was a little disappointing as it is a cool old room but the lights were on full making the room really lack character. Our server was pleasant but our food was rushed, dinner came just as we started our soup and our filets that were to have melted butter on top were so cool the butter did not melt. Had it not been my wife' s birthday, I would have sent it back (something I have only done once in my life). We made Huntsville, the hotel and restaurant, the final stop of vacation to experience a nice meal. The hotel was excellent. The restaurant, a big, big disappointment.

    We had reservations, but were seated in the bar. Service was a little slow. One of two cocktails was just 'ok', the other was great. Steak on both orders was undercooked to order. No substitutions to sides items were allowed, although all sides were same price. Value of food is a little overpriced for the selections available and options allowed. Recommend on the condition that you're not seated in the bar on a dinner reservation.

    The food was okay. The marrow toast was so hard it was practically inedible. I know beef carppacio is supposed to be thin but this was so thin it was stuck to the plate. The risotto was under cooked. The highlights were the pickled okra and creme brulee.

    Very disappointed with our first visit to Revivalist. Place was so loud. Background music was "tinny " and bouncing off the hard surfaces. People literally shouting over the non-ambient music. There were flies (fruitflies) flying around our table from the time the wine was poured. Appetizer was the carpaccio. It was okay, but only 2 toast pieces for half a plate of carpaccio. Needed at least 2 more ($15). We had the Shrimp and grits which were so overpowered by the sausage, you couldn't taste the shrimp. Other entre was the salmon. Cooked well, skin crispy, sauce nice but too little of it. Had haricot verts as the side. Chef ruined the lovely veg by clumping it full of black pepper and some undiscernable beige clumpy ingredient. Made every bite too peppery. Not pleasant. For desserts we had a tiny creme Brule (just okay) and a flourless chocolate espresso cake with a smear of something pink that was listed as "raspberry couli". Cake was cold and tasted like it had been in the fridge for a while. Couli (?) Too thin, flavorless and not enough to balance the dry crumbly "cake". Unfortunately our first visit will be our last...made for a memorable anniversary, but not in a good way. Food is NOT worth the price...it's just not that good. Upside, our server was very nice. Wish he had introduced himself.

    The food was great, appetizers fried green tomatoes and mussels, entrees red snapper risotto and spicy pecan salad w/salmon. The cocktails were excellent, old fashion and Lavender Gin. We had the pleasure of speaking with the visiting manager, Anthony. He was professional, knowledgeable regarding the food/beverage industry, and had some great insight on how to make the Revivalist experience even better. He even had a few minutes to show us the rooftop lounge, which is fabulous. We’ll be back again. This spot, though great now, should prove to be a Huntsville Gem in the near future.

    Would not recommend. The only good thing about our experience was the waitress. The food was disappointing and not worth the price tag. Our drinks took forever- something that the waitress warned us about. However, when I looked over at the bartender, he was just chatting away, had no sense of urgency, and was slow as could be. He made one drink ever 2 minutes. Do not go here. It is not with the pricey price tag.

    I wanted this to be fabulous! The food was OK limited menu but that was to be expected. Our server was not very motivated, and the bartender was really slow getting our drinks. I did enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant the seating is superb they’ve got a really cool mural out in the courtyard, and I would go back but not for lunch.

    The food was decent. I ordered the salmon with herb tossed sweet potatoes. Delicious. My wife ordered the filet, the appetizer was decent - green fried tomatoes. The dessert crème brûlée wasn’t superb. The service was extremely poor given the value of the meal. Here were the items of concerns. - ice in an old fashioned should be cubed - server was a bit pushy wanting us to order quickly - dirty plates were never cleared - we waited 30 min for our food. The table next us and across the room received their food before we did and they walked in 10 and 20 minutes after. - server reached across the table over our unfinished entree to remove a small plate - additionally the waitress wanted us to order or dessert before we finished our entree - after waiting for our entrees we had to ‘glare’ over to get the servers attention to pay for our meal.

    Of the four in our party only one was pleased with dinner. Her baked Cornish was done expertly with crisp skin and flavorful meat. Of the other three dishes the Summer pasta was room temperature and too heavily sauced, the shrimp in the shrimp & grits was tough/overcooked, and the filet, tho a perfect rare as requested, the accompanying sides were nothing special.
