This is a restaurant that has its ducks all in line. With its ingredients sourced from high quality suppliers Revival offers an excellent dining experience. Relaxed atmosphere with friendly and expert staff we were given a wonderful meal. Its a place of subtle confidence with a single page menu (that's all you need) and our party of five ordered a...

It's always a plesant surprise when you find a place that meets the reviews. Revival did just that. I enjoyed the duck. Cooked to perfection with excellent flavor. My guests enjoyed a meat trio, which he said was excellent and she had trumpet mushrooms which she loved. While it seems pricy looking online, I thought it was very reasonable and... More

Food is fantastic and cocktails really great. Love coming to Revival for drinks after a show or movie for cocktails. One of the only somewhat upscale and hip bars in Berkeley.

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
