Love this place! The food is fantastic and the drinks are strong... Plus, the $5 Happy Hour makes it one of the best deals in the Meatpacking District! The crowd is always friendly and fun, and the same goes for the staff. If you haven't been to Revel yet, I highly recommend you try it.

Went to Revel the other night. First of all it was way too hot - uncomfortably so. The food is okay, but lacks imagination. Amongst other things we had the Branzino which is served on a hot stone. Nice idea in principle, but the problem is that it keeps cooking the fish until it's completely dried out. Shame for an otherwise good fish. All in all I say skip Revel. There are too many other good places in the immediate area that are much better.

The food was just okay and way too much money! It was very loud and soooo HOT in the restaurant. They don't have AC, just fans blowing. I would say skip this place and go somewhere better around the corner....even a diner is better than this place!

First of all, this place has one of the coolest and most original atmospheres in town, with a retractable glass roof over the brick-wall garden in the back, a long bar, and still a comfortable, cozy feel. I went with a group of friends, and our waitress was so friendly and attentive of our needs throughout the entirety of the evening. The food is not cheap, but still on the cheaper end, compared to the other spots in this neighborhood, and considering that the portions are all generous, and in some cases even abundant. And did I mention DELICIOUS?!?!? Everything was fresh and satisfying, and the menu itself is fun and inspiring-- with an incredible wine-list to boot! The meats and fishes we tried were awesome, as well as the side dishes, and the pastas were homemade and yummy as well. All around, we had a great evening, and by the time we wrapped up dinner, the place was fully packed, and a whole new, wild part of the night seemed to be just beginning.. Will have to go back for a late night of drinking and dancing soon, but will certainly return for dinner as well.

Wasn't sure what to expect from the mixed reviews. We loved it. We had an 8pm reservation and was sat in the garden by 8.15. The server was really friendly and on top of everything, the food was excellent. The steak on the hot rock was too much with the warm weather so we asked for a plate and they took the rock away. Had a couple of cocktails and a bottle of wine and soaked up the atmosphere. Fun crowd and we had a lot of fun. Don't go here for a romantic dinner on the weekend cause the place is rocking! When we told the server we were surprised at how good the food was, he informed us that a new Chef took over a month ago. We will definitely go back. Highly recommended.

Went here for Sunday brunch with some friends. Arrived at 11 AM and the place was empty and remained that way until we left at 12:45 PM. Interestingly enough, the service was awful with us being the only people there and about 10 plus waitstaff. Our food took forever and the staff forgot everything. When we asked about it they took forever again bringing it out. The prefix is overpriced - I can name 30 other restaurants with better brunch/cocktail specials. The food was sub-par, especially for this part of town. The waitstaff simply does not care and the food is so-so.

Ordinary food in a lovely setting. $35 prix fixe is a good value. Wine is overpriced. Deafeningly noisy after 7:30.
