A friend and I ate here because of its proximity to the Berkeley Repertory Theatre It sounded good from the reviews. What we experienced was outstanding. The salads, the flatbreads, the soup, the entrees were all spectacular - flavorful, inventive and memorable. And the service - to ensure that we got out in time - was perfect. It was, in short, an unexpectedly great meal.

This is definitely a Berkeley Best. Revival always has such a fun, but not too crazy atmosphere. The food is delicious, the menu is always changing and fresh. The drinks are yuuuummmmy.

I've been here twice now and its my go-to spot for out of town guests when I want to show them a little bit of upscale Berkeley at a price point that won't make me faint.

I always ask for the servers recommendations. They know their stuff. I love the decor of the place. I love how friendly the staff is, but not all up in your space. I think one dinner went into 3 hours and we left and never felt rushed. Dinner, Drinks, Dessert and Heaven.

Revival Bar+Kitchen is an excellent addition to Berkeley's fine dining scene. Its a very large - even cavernous - space and attached bar which somehow manages to make you feel comfortable. The servers are attractive, friendly and knowledgable. Definitely try their cocktails; my Negroni was stunningly good and a friend opined that her Martini was one of the best she'd tasted in years. The food menu is not large but the offerings are interesting and well prepared. My plate of charcuterie (five or six items) was extraordinarily generous and of high quality. The food claims to be local and geared to sustainability. Prices were very reasonable. This is an excellent place to eat before a play at the Berkeley Rep or at a nearby concert venue and while kitchen service finished at the early hour of 9.30 pm on the Sunday evening of our visit - the bar continued to serve drinks for another hour or hour and a half.

An excellent spot for dinner before going to Berkeley Rep but a destination on it's own ....very lively bar scene after work. Spacious dining room, rather austere but with handsome zinc tabletops with wood banding. Wait staff very charming and efficient as is the timing from the kitchen. Exellent menu, well thought out, unusual offerings, tasty and beautifully plated. Appetizer of Stuffed Squash Blossoms lovely to look at and delicious, Lemon Linguine (a version of Pasta Primavera) with various vegetables also wonderful. The Duck with Pickled Cherries and Polenta (maybe the Polenta was a bit too dry/solid) was a stand-out: tender fall-off-the-bone leg a perfectly sliced medium-rare breast. Lemon Meringue Tartlet with a tender crust, properly tart lemon filling and little individual clouds of meringue was fresh and satisfying. Exellent Expresso
