Super good drinks, very good food and good service. What more could you ask for? Located in the middle of downtown, easy to find.

This restaurant is mostly locals but the staff is friendly and the service is fast. Tr the happy hour (4-6) for reasonable prices.

First, I gave the restaurant plenty of opportunity reply to the email that I sent to them. I held off on this review, pending a reply which I never got. The good: the food and service were good and we would have returned based on...both. The bad: three out of four items on our bill were charged more than the menu indicated! I hate this and if you don't check the bill carefully you may end up paying more than you anticipated. What's even worse, within 45 minutes or so if finishing my wedge salad with blue cheese dressing, I was sick! That's the way staph works. With food handling, restaurants must be diligent about keeping refrigerated such items and, since we were told that business was very slow that night, I'm wondering if the dressing just wasn't fresh or if they were careless about where they kept it. I WILL NEVER RETURN BECAUSE OF A LACK OF TRUST ON HOW THEY HANDLE FOOD.More

Maybe the best 1/2 chicken dinner ever in a restaurant. Asparagus and potatoes perfect. Connie loved pizza special. Hazy IPA hit the spot. Nice crowd and service by Carli.

Had 2 great nights here in palm springs. It was very quiet while we were here so most places we visited had no atmosphere. This place though was very welcoming. A great happy hour and great service from danielle. Good bar snacks and the best...beer i had in palm springs.More

Most restaurants are closed by 10 but this one stayed open till 11. The food was just standard fare. Nothing special. The outside patio is a nice place to eat and enjoy the view

Fast service, good food although pricey. Menu reads that a 20% (!!!) surcharge will be added to bills for groups of 6 or more - possibly understandable if it’s assumed big groups may want to split bills and / or sit and talk longer than...a smaller booking. What’s not stated is the 20% tip (!?!) that’s added to the bill by the waiting staff. It is highlighted by the waiting staff when the bill is presented yet no explanation is given. When queried we were told it was because foreign tourists don’t tip and the 20% was expected as a standard. Overall this approach is as offensive as it is presumptuous. Offensive to think we wouldn’t tip, Presumptuous to assume that we weren’t local and to then tell us to tip them at a level that they thought was fair. The 20% mentioned in menus was clearly a surcharge for large groups; it was not an automatic tip for two customers. How about leaving a tip to be what it is - recognition at the customer’s discretion for service, quality and overall value for money. The approach taken to tipping by Palm Springs Revel Public House is nothing short of overcharging - the 20% is also applied to the tax that is added separately (!) - and leaves nothing short of a bad experience, never to be revisited and not recommended for others. Stay away and leave them to deal with locals only.More

Brunch at Revel was a topnotch experience. It's not formal or fancy, but the food is excellent, and our server was one of the best we've ever seen. His name is Greg, and not only was he right on top of everything service-related, but he...also has a fun (that is to say, slightly twisted) sense of humor. My wife got the breakfast burrito, and I had the eggs and Revel patties. Both dishes were well-prepared, with high-quality ingredients. I tried the pineapple ginger mocktail, and my wife went for the bottomless champagne. Both were excellent, and Greg (and others) kept the champagne glass full. (I've got to try that some time when I'm not driving.) Based on a single visit, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Revel. I would also welcome the opportunity to collect more data points, but our short time in Palm Springs isn't going to permit that, unfortunately. We sat outside, which is fine as long as the patio isn't in the direct sun, but in the afternoon I imagine it can get, ummm, toasty. (There are, however, misters -- a common sight in P.S.) Also, I expect in high season it could get pretty loud inside, but I wouldn't let that keep me from visiting again.More

Revel Public House of course. Awesome Fries (crispy and salty and good) and an amazing burger. Mine had egg on it. How good is that? Anyway, give it a try....even if other restaurants are open. Great food, cold beer..what more is there to life??
