Seriously, are the dinner expectations so low in Seattle that everyone has to stand out on the curb for hours!!! My daughter phoned for reservations (for 5) but apparently they don't take them for parties under 7??? How did this get to be the magic number-food might be fab but wait in the busy summer is dreadful. Even if food... More

We were visiting friends in town and Revel was highly recommended to us. We were not disappointed, the food and wine were great, and accompanied by great service. I highly recommend a visit.

This place is just phenomenal. Every dish was amazing. We had the corn pancake, short rib dumplings, short rib rice and cilantro noodles. We couldn't believe how flavorful everything was. There just aren't words to describe it. Everything was perfectly cooked and had an expertly balanced profile. I can't wait to return to Seattle and eat here again!

Absolutely delish. Well-worth the trip. Beautiful presentation. Wonderful, tasty combination of flavors and textures. Pan Asian cuisine at its best.

If you're a foodie (as much as I hate that term), you cannot miss this place on a visit to Seattle. Tucked away in Fremont (one of my favorite neighborhoods in the city), this place has the most amazing, tasty, creative food. And if you love spicy, they have plenty of it.

Great tasty Korean fusion restaurant! We ended there since we found another restaurant closed and while the first impression was not good (maybe for the small and bland place) we completely changed our mind once the food was served. Delicious!

Pork belly pancakes, short rib and shrimp & Chinese sausage dumplings, short rib with sambal daikon and mustard greens on rice with egg yolk, and Dandan noodle with smoky pulled pork were just a few of the dishes that exploded with flavors that reminded us the our visit to their sister restaurant, Joule! We had six in our party and... More

We ordered multiple dishes because there were 4 of us and they were so good we kept ordering more. There was not a single dish that was not loved by all of us. My husband liked it so much he went back another night to try the rest of the items he didn't try the first time. You have no... More

My husband and I went to Revel for dinner after reading its excellent reviews. We were looking for a Korean BBQ restaurant, but Revel was very different. It is more like a Korean "Tapas" restaurant. The atmosphere is very trendy and the average age was 30-40. The rap music was pretty loud. The service was good--my husband ordered the Dungeness... More

A waiter at a downtown restaurant recommend Revel during a recent Seattle vacation and I'm glad I went. The kitchen is fully exposed to the dining room and they were doing a very brisk lunch business, creating a somewhat loader and busy environment. There are individual tables, as well as a long, wide wooden surface that serves as a table... More
