Great suburban eating outside CBD Seattle

Whilst sight seeing in Fremont, came across Revel purely by accident. But no regrets. The food is crafted in a very professional manner. Beef Noodle soup gets 10 points more than any Pho you will find in Seattle. But wait till you have their winter special - Hot Pot Italian Seafood soup. The... read more

First...I know you're supposed to be reviewing the food but....this place was so noisy that my friend & I sitting across from each other @ a small table could not talk in a normal voice. Maybe our selections were off but to me it was just a mess of weird fusion tastes. I LOVE Korean food but nothing here reminded... More

Super, excellent, outstanding, awesome, spectacular, magnificent, lovely! I'm serious; these superlatives are worth the food! We ordered the salads, noodles, rice and pancakes and each dish had many flavours with sweet, sour, spicey and fresh touches. It was delicious! The interior of the restaurant itself (and open kitchen) was also great, just like the cocktails. So, if you are staying... More

The food at Revel is always a treat. Last night I had an oyster mushroom salad that everyone at the table loved. Service was also great. The downside of our experience was the noise level. We could hardly hear ourselves talk or think! We plan to return in the summer when we can sit outside. No more noisy dining room... More

We had friends in town and wanted to take them to an awesome Seattle restaurant. We chose Revel and are so glad we did! Ambiance was excellent and food was even better. We ordered 1 of everything on the menu and shared it all. The dumplings were so good we ordered MORE! We would definitely recommend Revel!!

I had lunch with some clients at this spot off the beaten path. The food is served family style, and there's plenty of it. We ordered two from each category: dumplings, noodles, pancakes and rice. Every dish was delicious, with enough flavor and spice. If it wasn't lunch, a bottle of Riesling or rose would have been perfect. There's a... More

Revel remains one of my favorite casual places to eat in Seattle. I keep returning to enjoy its dumplings, rice dishes, salads, noodles, savory pancakes and desserts. My husband and I especially like the Korean influence, the focus on small plates to share and the excellent service. On our most recent visit, we chose my favorite -- the short-rib rice... More

Menu and space highly eclectic. Short rib dumplings were scrumptious. Crab noodles delicious. Bean cake much too small but yummy. Overall portions small but creative and well done.

This is a consistently good place for us. Last evening's meal was delicious as usual. However, there was a pervasive odor of chlorine beach, mixed with something funky, that bothered us a we sat at the bar adjacent to the kitchen. What the?

I live in the hood and frequent Revel often - dine in and take out. The salads, pancakes, and dumplings are my fav, as well as the varied pork offerings of the summer BBQ. Thumbs down on ambiance - extremely noisy indoors; thumbs down on main dish variety - change it up - it seems to always be the same... More
