We visited on a Friday night and the joint was hopping. Luckily, we were seated far from the bar and the group of four boisterous revelers who could have been stand-ins for blokes at a Liverpool pub. The service was very good; the waiter asked if we were going to the theatre, and since we had... read more

"I'm so disappointed! The ambiance here looked so inviting: lots of people; delicious smells; interesting menu and great decor. But then I sat down at the bar. After a couple hours of "playing tourist" in Berkeley, I was looking forward to sitting and enjoying dinner. I placed my bag and camera on the bar. Before I even had time to... More

Wanted to love it but didn't. Visited with friends before show at Freight & Salvage. Started with a Charcuterie "Pork Rillette" order that was generous and tasty. The main dish of duck breast confit was the biggest hit and got a rave review. My buttermilk fried chicken was a bit dry & overcooked, although the mac n'cheese side was creamy... More

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.
