Touted as a French bistro, this restaurant certainly looks the part. We were excited to try some French bistro fare, and sat at the bar. Unfortunately, the trouble started when trying to order drinks. Despite five draft beer taps, only one draft beer was available...More

Wanted to go to this restaurant for a while and when Summerlicious arrived thought it was a great excuse to go. Ate outside on the patio with good service and friendly waitstaff. The summerlicious menu was lovely as was a la carte. Will return.

jogging trails, and nature treks of the Rosehill
Revision are always a hub of outdoor activity, and
