We enjoyed drinks, wine and beer with oysters, drinks, flatbread with artichokes, mushroom ricotta cannelloni, bouillabaisse, and an interesting salad with orange slices and fried bits of avocado. Very tasty, good service. Very close to the Berkeley Rep.

Had reservations for dinner and burlesque. Were seated directly in front of a large pole so we literally could not see the stage. Had to move, they gave us a much better seat. From prior experience we know to stick to simply prepared dishes, otherwise we end up with that "trying too hard" factor I mentioned in an earlier review.... More

The service wasn't the best. It took a while before we could place the order. I had oysters on the half shell as appetizers. They were very small. I was not impressed by this restaurant. It is not cheap either.

Some fun very inventive cocktails and interesting twists on dishes. Very noisy, accommodating if you have to be at Berkeley Rep or Aurora Theatres a block away for a curtain time

Saturday night we just popped in at the right time. I would suggest reservations in the future but we wanted to eat prior to a concert and it was all Last minute. Service was superb, noice level not bad for being so busy and the food was wonderful. A big pricey but we made it to the show on time... More

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!

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
