Loved the atmosphere in this restaurant. A great bar for drinks, and a spacious eccletic restaurant with plain, but good food. We went for dinner and I had the lamb, which was delicate, and cooked to perfection. Heirloom tomatoes were a find too!

Our second or third visit to this restaurant -- used to go to the place that was there before. This version is fine! She had the grilled lamb assortment (leg steak, tenderloin, sausage), and I had the roast duck. Both were delicious. Service was top-notch. Will definitely go back.

We love this place. The menu is always interesting and the food is great. There's always a "mixed grill" of some kind and they do a lot of in house nose to hoof cooking. Service is consistently friendly and professional. It's also half a block from Berkeley Rep so pre theater dining is very convenient.

We had hoped to eat at Venus, because it had been fabulous when we were there a year ago, but it was closed. So, we went across the street and tried Revival, which turned out to be just as good. We had duck confit, with exquisite breast plus a leg done a bit differently. Salad was interestingly different. Staff was... More

Revival has a great location in downtown Berkeley. Perfect for BART, not so perfect for parking depending on what day and time you want to be there. A good-sized open restaurant that for some may be a little dark inside at night. Their menu may not always stay the same so that can be good and bad. Had their meatballs... More

We visited The Revival Bar and Kitchen for our anniversary. The service was great and food was top notch. We had the lamb flat bread as an appetizer (uh-maz-ing!) and the grill sampler for dinner. Portions aren't huge, but quality is amazing! We spent about $70 for a shared appetizer, shared entree, and shared drink (we don't eat a lot).... More

I took my wife to see a play at the Berkeley Rep. and chose Revival on a hunch. Better than I could have imagined. The best service and outstanding menu. It was one of our favorite nights out thanks to their ambiance, food and service.

My daughter chose this farm-to- table restaurant, and what a great choice it was! I would travel to Berkeley again just to get another taste of the gnudi. Our dining companions had the lamb, the king salmon, and the mixed grill; and we were all happy with the food. The service was terrific--warm and very helpful. We liked it so... More

There has been a succession of restaurants trying to make a go of this premium corner space. The latest is Revival Bar + Kitchen. Their take is to limit the menu down to a handful of items on one page, with a small wine list, specials and high end cocktails. We started with the salmon rillettes, which came as a... More

We always go to Revival before Berkeley Rep. The restaurant is focused on cooking the "whole animal" and always has a new and interesting menu. I've never had a bad dish here and have had many memorable treats. Last time was a mixed grill of sausage, pork steak and goat chop - yes, goat - and it was great! Highly... More
