Our trip to revival began as a mistake. We couldn't remember the name of the restaurant that we intended to go to and this sounded familiar. We made the reservation and realized upon arrival that we had guessed the wrong restaurant. What a wonderful mistake! The restaurant was not too busy, service was excellent and the food was absolutely wonderful.... More

Dined here before theatre, and restaurant was truly impressive. Nice, energetic ambience with a great bar. Service was excellent. Menu had interesting choices, and we enjoyed what we ordered. Salad starters were quite unusual, delicious, and beautifully presented: a charred peach salad and a shaved asparagus salad. For entrees, I had the sea bass & hubby had the smoked brisket... More

My family and I really like this restaurant. The food is always excellent, it has a great location near the Berkeley Rep and you get good value for your money but we dined here on May 17th and it was a mess. My wife and I arrived at 6 PM letting the hostess know that the other half of our... More

Very convenient to the Berkeley downtown theaters, which means they have a peak in the 6:30 to 7:30 period when there are shows. And they know this (or should). And they plan for this (or should). The night we were there they didn't. It took 25 minutes (literally) for our driinks to arrive. And the food, while good, seemed thrown... More

Food Over Priced, Poor Service and Long Wait for the food This was my wife and I first time and last time to visit Revival Bar & Kitchen. The food was over priced with small portions and the food took a long time to arrive to our table. And our waiter wasn’t very good either. I had looked online at... More

Very conveniently located, nice ambience, very friendly staff and wonderfull food. This is one of the restaurants where you get a typical Berkeley dinner. Certainly not cheap, but special ingredients and exquisite dishes. Some things are two expensive though. If you order an asparagus salad for example, you pay 12$ for almost nothing. On the other side, the kale gratin... More

Disappointing first try here for dinner. Service good decor pretty basic advertised as quiet not. But food is the main thing. Salad wilted poor lettuce innards mediated by nice dressing. Flatbread spicy you should warn people. Latkes highlight of meal but fattiest lamb I've ever been served.

Go to the bar and just order appetizers. Flat bread funky pizza is great. Drinks are exceptional and place has a good vibe. Food was mixed - kale salad was drenched in dressing and kale was in big chunks. Not edible at all (and waiter did not check in). Fish was acceptable. Service was prompt and perfunctory. Parking garage just... More
