We tried a halibut crude that was spot on and fresh. The back bar holds some great eye candy, tequilas, mezcal, whiskey. Best charcuterie around, perfect cocktails!

We went to Revival Bar and Kitchen after Cal Bear foortball win over Utah on October 1. As such, it was a celebration dinner after the game. We ordered cocktails to celebrate. For our dinner we did shared plates. We enjoyed yellowtail ceviche, duck and fig flatbread, cheese with figs, and vegetable fettuccini. All were very good. We enjoyed a... More

We were brought here by a local friend as we were going to a Berkley Rep performance around the corner. Excellent choice for location, vibe, and food. We went there for a 6:30pre-theatre dinner and the place was crowded. The food was good (not great). I had short ribs which were on the dry side. Service was slow

I've eaten at Revival 3 times now. The salad I had was great on one visit. The other two times, I wasn't that thrilled with the entrees. The menu is a bit limited. My companion enjoyed the chicken, maybe I should have ordered that. One time I had a meat entree, but the last time I had a pasta dish... More

When we first went here a few years ago we were entranced by the decor and the food was simply prepared, fresh, and delicious. It was early, maybe 5:30 pm, so the crowds hadn't made it yet and we were able to score a lovely two seater table. We've been back several times, hoping to repeat the experience, only to... More

On the way to Jupiter we walked by this spot and decided to stop in for a quick drink and maybe an appetizer, we saw they had a Happy Hour but that was not the main reason we went. It was about 4:30 pm so early and not many people yet there, we easily found seats at the bar. I... More

Stopped in for appetizers and drinks--though waiters were busy with the thinning dinner crowd, we were well-attended to and made to feel welcome. Pretty classy place with a unique bar area within direct sight of diners. Easy to find on a Shattuck corner.

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
