I hosted a large joint birthday bash at Revel Room last Saturday and things were absolutely perfect. I made the reservation with Genni a month in advance and she was so thorough in explaining their seating policies and large party procedures. I asked her a million questions and she was always quick to respond. Unlike some restaurants in Vancouver she... More

The room is filled with interesting decor that creates a uniquely inviting setting. From the red walls, disco ball and retro chandelier to a collection of Ghostbusters Stay Puft Marshmallow Men, it's bound to make you smile. The cocktails are delicious and the food is casual and scruptous. My favourites are the Buttermilk Chicken Bites and the house made Black... More

I live in the neighbourhood and the Revel Room is a standard. Whether you're really hungry or just want a snack you'll find something to suit your palate. The appies are great for sharing (enough for two or a small meal for one). And the mains are almost too much. Too much just means leftovers for lunch. And the live... More

We go to the RR often. The tone is kind of hipster without making a big thing of it. The food is excellent - especially the tapas (the tacos are terrific, mac cheese too). There's music some week nights which is often great - especially when the group keeps their volume down to a conversation friendly level. If quiet conversation... More

after the 'Caps game our group of 7 w/reservations dropped in for dinner. A great spot ...southwestern fare with a rockabilly vibe.... loud and proud. Service was great, the ambiance was perfect for those not looking for a quiet time and the food overall excellent.

We went primarily for the small plates/tapas, and had a few drinks at the friendly small bar first. The menu had a good selection of interesting sounding small bites that were, for the most part, tasty. Could have used a bit more seasoning for our taste, but we think most folks would find them enjoyable. We had four small plates... More

The staff took my group of 30 conventioneers in late one afternoon and made us feel comfortable and right at home. Its a cozy place with a great bar and dining room. The staff is warm and welcoming. Especially Ginny.

It's a nice casual restaurant. They have live music start at 7 pm. Nice band. Great food (appy and entree). I had Duck Quesadilla for appy and Chilli Rub Rib Eye for the entree. Was very good and the portion is generous. They also have a good list of drink. I ordered Stay Puft S'more, it's rock. But the desert... More

Funky Gastown eatery with ambiance aplenty. Great Southern style food with generous portions and a great price point. Good wine and drinks list, personal service and live music to boot. It's one of our "go to" places. Check it out. Open in the evening until late at night!

I loved the laid back vibe here, the rockabilly music and the drinks. SO many great drinks. Oh, and the food ain't so bad either.
