This is an interesting place. We couldn't get reservations at our first choices as it was parents weekend at Cal. We were able to get in at Revival. Service was ok. Food was ok. It was pretty empty. Can't really say it is good or bad. I would not go back, but maybe we just caught it at a weird... More

They can actually make drinks here, and will serve things other than your standard bar food. It does feel a bit overpriced and the place is a bit too large for what it offers

Dinner at Revival was very nice. Two caveats, though. They aren't kidding when they call their small plates "small" plates, and it is a little on the expensive side for the casual kind of vibe they are trying to give off. That said, everything we had was very good. After a long day of wine tasting we were content to... More

No seriously, it made us laugh, it really did! Thank heavens I wasn't too hungry at the time and just ordered the soup (about the only veggie option on the menu which made any sense/seemed affordable). Sadly the rest of my 12-strong group weren't as fortunate and ordered various other far pricier offerings... And then we waited... And waited some... More

The bartenders were incredibly friendly and helpful, but the drinks were a bit expensive for what they were. Good vibe, but there isn't a ton of seating in the bar area and it gets cramped quickly.

Our first experience here did not disappoint. Service was excellent and the food, kale salad and halibut were perfect as was the excellent Pinot Grigio bottle of wine. A little too loud, but not as loud as other restaurants.

Last Saturday, my husband and I saw this "Happy Hour" sign placed on the side walk outside of this restaurant so we decided to order two drinks. The bartender then told us that "There is no Happy Hour on Saturdays" and two drinks were $24; we asked the manager why the sign did not mention Saturday exclusion of the Happy... More

Two martinis, one glass of wine, 2 teeny portions of lukewarm soup (sent back once, too hungry to bother again), 3 teeny appetizers (one ok, one meh, and one barely edible), and two cups of coffee -- $100.00. Slow as molasses service. Avoid this rip off.
