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

We have eaten at Revival many times. My husband, adult daughter and I dined here a couple of weeks ago. We had several appetizers [really great] and my daughter and I split a fish entree [excellent], my husband had the mixed grill [he loved it]. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. We arrived after the theater crowd had gone... More

We didn't have time for a leisurely meal as we were going to the Aurora Theatre. Servers were very attentive to our schedule and made sure we were promptly served. Much appreciated. Albacore flat bread was quite good although the albacore flavor was extremely mild. Lamb leg roast, trout, and apricot salad were quite good. All in all, a good... More

the quinoa salad is undercooked; the kale salad has not been massaged and made soft properly. the service was rather poor each time. We were two women and they seemed to know we don't eat or order that Much food and made us feel like second class citizens. I should have sent everything back was but afraid they would spit... More

The meat was cooked to perfection, had no aftertaste. The portion was large and can be shared. My colleague had liberty duck and it was excellent! It was served with potato terrine... More

enjoyed a very nice evening there with great service and atmosphere, good cocktails and generally nice handling of the drinking staff, the charcuterrie was ok but the mixed grill was under average. good desserts and poor espresso. they need to improve the food period.
