My sister and I went here for an impromptu dinner, boy were we sorry! We ordered appetizers and entrees and all of the dishes were disgusting. I had order some type of tomato soup which tasted as if it came out of a can with a piece of soggy bread tossed into it. The waiter (bless his heart) couldn't understand why we were in such a rush to leave!
Bottom Line: They should close down and reassess their menu and cooks.

Stopped by on Friday night for dinner at 8:00PM with no reservation and didn't have to wait. Now I know why. When we reached the table a filthy insect - r***** was crawling all over the the table and place settings. The hostess sat the menu down and tried to cover it up and when I acknowledged the extra guest she lifted the menu to lead us to another table. I headed to the door.

The decor was nice, the food was awful, the service was awful. People come in off the street to use the restroom........... Just a horrible experience on Valentine's Day!

In November of 2008, my niece and I held a surprise b'day party for my Mom at Revival . the food, staff and atmosphere was above all that we expected. The food was continuously replenished and my mother's friends, coworkers, and church members are still giving us compliments. Though we sent an email raving on how wonderful everything went, it is an honor to rate Revival in a place where it will be of most benefit. Their brunches are wonderful, the atmosphere is wonderful, the staff is wonderful and we look forward to returning.

My husband and I visit many restaurants and Revival is on the top of the list. This is my first time writing a review and thanks to the hostess/waitress, Julisha, who made our visit there quite enjoyable. Julisha's welcome and conversation made us aware of how glad we are that Revival is stationed in the heart of Harlem. She is A#1 in our book because she knows the art of serving people. My husband and I are in Ministry and serving others makes the difference in life. Thank you Julisha. In addition the ambiance and decor has such a warm and relaxing feel. My favorite entree is the Ravioli dish which is seasoned to perfection; my husband loves the Lamb. I recommend that all frequent this restaurant and experience Harlem's restauant that makes one made alive (Revival). Thanks to you all, From Rev and Rev's Wife.

I attended an artist showcase on november 15th at revivial restaurant's lounge side. It was such a great event!!! The two bartenders (forgive me if I give the wrong names ) Nancy & Ju-Ju. They were so lively and attentive! They work together very well. They engaged the customers! Helped make the place a party! They should do every showacase lol. They come up with drinks that I had neva heard of! A mango long island! During the after party they came along and sang w us. They both felt like old friends. The small one can sing a lil something too. Overall they were very sweet. And honest, nice girls. (Which is rare in the world of bartenders)They suggested drinks that sounded good and made them taste great! GO SEE MY GIRLS! You'll know them by the pretty faces(oh and they both have pretty eyes) and charming attitudes! What am I saying that for, you'll see;)

This past Saturday a friend and I dined at Revival for the first time. I would definitely go back and bring a group of friends with me. We went on a rainy, stormy night which is why I'm guessing there were only 2 other small parties there. But I'm guessing that had it not been for the weather, it would?ve been crowded.

To the drinks ? I ordered a Midori Sour and requested that they make it sweet- something many restaurants get wrong when I ask. Well, kudos to the bartender because the drink was absolutely perfect! I would certainly have ordered another one if I weren?t driving.

The Spicy Butter Shrimps appetizer I ordered was very tasty. My friend said her Salmon Wrapped Scallop appetizer was good as well. Although I?m not a scallop eater, I tasted the Salmon in her appetizer and some the greens that came with it ? and it was delicious!

For the entree, I ordered the Crusted Chilean Sea Bass which was very good. I ordered
it with collard greens and mashed sweet potatoes which were to die for!! And the size
of the fish was so very, very generous. I highly recommend this entree.! My friend
enjoyed her Crusted Seafood entree. Her portion was so healthy she took the rest of it home. We were so full that we skipped dessert. But the next time, I?ll leave room.

The only downside was that our waitress was somewhat hostile. She certainly didn?t deserve the 18% gratuity that was automatically added to the bill! However, there was another girl who passed by twice and asked us how everything was ? she was pleasant.

Want great drinks and deliciously prepared food while enjoying wonderful ambience in a Harlem restaurant? ? Go to Revivial !

I have been to Revival twice this year, once in July with a large party (over 12) and again in September (party of 5). I loved it both times. The service from waitstaff was great, very attentive both times. I confess that I enjoyed my meal so much the first time I ordered the same things again - appetizer and entree. Shrimp risotto and Blackened NY Strip with twin mashed potatoes (white and sweet mixed). The rest of my party, ordered - mango/pear salad (tasted it, great), lamb patties (very tasty) and the spicy shrimp (very spicy, good for those that love spicy). For entrees they ordered - Salmon and Chilean Sea Bass. We all enjoyed our food, everything was cooked to perfection (I am the type of person that notices differences in my meals, I detected none - just as good as the first time). Bartenders are generous and talented. Nice ambience, music playing in background is not overpowering and everyone is friendly. I will return sometime soon and will choose something new, can't wait! I recommend this place to everyone looking for great food, great drinks and great service.

This is a follow up to the review I posted previously and the response from the restaurant. The response is completely false and not accurate. We did not eat most of the dish. And they never offered us 15%, they wanted to give us some type of coupon. 15% would not even have been sufficent enough for a dish that we barely touched. The fish was raw on the inside and when speaking to the manager and owner they were not willing to listen to reason. I will never recommned this restuarant to anyone I know or spend my monay here again. What happened to Customer Service? Please don't believe the hype, they were not as willing as they are trying to seem. I have nothing to lose in all of this. They have the money for the dish. There are plenty of restaurants in and around the city to choose from, Revial will never be one of those choices for me.

I had my Wedding Reception at Revival on Sunday, August 24, 2008. It was perfect! The Chief - was fantastic and he really did a great job with the food. People are still e-mail and calling me about the food. My mother in law who is so hard to please loved ever moment of the place. She danced and had a great time. She can't wait to go back again. My sister wants to do our mother's 75th Birthday party at Revival. My Aunt who lives in New Jersey is already talking about having something at Revival. The staff was so nice and very professional. Even the children ask if they can come back. My mother really enjoyed herself and she is very picky about her food, she doesn't like resturants she was very impressed.

If you are planning a special event. I highly recommend Revival for all your catering and logistical needs.

In Tips from The Park, one of your suggestions was the Revival Restaurant in Harlem.
I took your suggestion and on April 25th a few friend and relatives celebrated my daughter's 51st birthday at the restaurant.
Originally I wanted it on a Friday because they advertised "Karaoke Night". There was no karaoke and that was alright and decided to make and keep the reservations for 14 people.
I am writing to say the service was far from being even mediocre, it was truly inexcusbly bad. A pregnant waitress/barmaid with a terribly rude attitude and a person who was acting as cook,and server tried his best to show some concern for our requests. I asked for the manager or owner and was told they were not there. I found that rather neglectful of the owners, not to have someone in charge available to temper attitudes, service and complaints. The food was not as tasty as the menu implied and some items on the plate were served cold.
Some of the guest felt they were overcharged and began to complain others just paid their share and vowed never to go there again.
It was unfortunate for us, however for you, the evening must have been great I'm sure, they knew you were coming and prepared accordingly. After all they were being rated by you.
Bathroom (1) with both a commode and one used specifically by men. The rank smell of urine coming from the mens urinal. The Bd of Health s/b notified. Revival s/h at least 2 bathrooms, one for women and one for men. Bad business, NEVER AGAIN.
Just a bit of "fyi" for the next recommendation from Central Park Conservancy.

On Wednesday night 1/24, Revival and your staff contributed to a wonderful evening. The hostess, waitress was fabulous. She was very cool with us, she didn't hover and no attitude even though she basically had to kick us out. She contributed to a great evening.

I went on a Wednesday after school, with a bunch of coworkers. I was impressed by the decor and the menu. I don't remember the woman's name who served us, but she was fabuluos. Very personable. The shrimp and bacon pizza was crunchy and delicous. the calamari was cooked to perfection. Not rubbery at all. the house drinks were delightful. I would suggest that they have happy hour for teachers (which include something off the bar menu). We can quickly become regulars, especially since a number of us live near and work near the establishment.

This place is a new whole experience; anybody can relax and enjoy the environment. The service is great. ?Red Snapper Linguini? has a unique savor; anybody can feel the freshness of the fish. In fact red snapper was recommended to me by my mom, she knows that I do not eat fish anywhere. I tried here and now it?s my primary choice so far in Revival only. For this reason I decided to share my experience with everybody. Finally ?Passion Fruit Mousse? as dessert I shared it with husband and we both left the place with so much pleasure to come back soon.

The staff was extremely accomadating and friendly.My friends and I also did the karaoke which although, was fairly empty, was a blast and we really enjoyed the host. The chocolate mousse cake we had was to die for. This place is great!!!!

I had my 25th birthday party at Revival and I must say it was
wonderful! All of my friends were so delighted at my choice of Revival and
all have said they will visit Revival again, either with friends or
their families. The food, of course, was amazing- extremeley tasty and
wonderfully presented. We all especially enjoyed the shrimp risotto! We
liked it so much that we stayed a little past closing- and I apologize
for that but we were having so much fun we barely noticed!

Thank you so much for such a great experience! I am definitely
thinking of Revival for future events.

Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy your time in one of the best spots in Harlem. I enjojyed myself even though during my last visit service was poor. The African-American waitress is a bad server, and horrible bartender. Look for a tall French guy - excellent server, and amazingly good bartender!

I have had the opportunity to attend Revival lounge for Afterwork Thursdays and really enjoyed myself. The drinks were delicious and I fell in love with the chicken wing dings with the sweet and sour sauce. I recommend it to all of my friends when they go. I have also eaten on the restaurant side for dinner with a friend. For my appetizer I had the Johzah Chicken Salad and wing dings of course and for the entree we both decided to have the Blackened NY Strip. I must say everything was delicious and fulfilling. I will always remain a loyal customer to Revival and will most definitely invite my friends to go and have the experince that I had.

I will always remain a loyal customer to Revival and will most definitely invite my friends to go and have the experince that I had.

Pros: Friendly staff with good food

I have had the opportunity to attend Revival lounge for Afterwork Thursdays and really enjoyed myself. The drinks were delicious and I fell in love with the chicken wing dings with the sweet and sour sauce. I recommend it to all of my friends when they go.

I had my husband's 30th birthday surprise party at Revival on 12/16/2005, and it was wonderful. The food and the drinks were excellent as was the service. The packages were flexible and could be easily customized. The lounge had great ambience and very chic furnishings. It was a wonderful party and I think our guests will be talking about it for a long time to come. Thanks Revival!!

The service here is poor because the wait staff is tipped 18% regardless of how attentive they are. My husband and I enjoyed the food but have not gone back because its relatively expensive and you get poor service. Not worth it.

My family and I went to Revival for a celebration as a very large party and everything went off without a hitch!!! The lounge on the side is fantastic and the totally comfortable. The drinks were perfect (the bartender even made one up for me for my birthday!). This place has a sunday brunch menu that is stupendous, not-to-mention THEY DELIVER!!! A must-hit spot for the new Harlem!!

When I first heard about Revival from a friend, I had no idea that I would encounter such a GEM!! Around the same time, I was looking for a venue to host a 30th B-day party for a good friend of mine. After encountering the private room that the restaurant has for parties, it was a no brainer... we booked the venue on the spot!! Selling points -- Excellent Food, Great Ambiance, Fantastic Service, and GOOD PRICES!! In a 5 hour event, we had great food, the opportunity to play our own music (or hire a DJ), access to karaoke and sound system, a private bar, and an amazing wait staff!! Our guests LOVED the food and were disappointed that I didn't arrange for them to get boxed leftovers...LOL.

The food and service and ambience are equally wonderful. We went early for the happy hour. Terrific choice of Martinis. Then proceeded to the restaurant are, and very pleasantly surprised by the menu. Rack of lamb, splendid baked salmon, and lots of fresh, and I mean fresh vegetablews.

Presentation also adds greatly to a meal, and the presentation is right on.

I held my office holiday party at Revival and it was great! The owners, who were readily available, worked with me on the menu and details and I was able to throw an enjoyable party within budget. The staff is very accommodating; the party space was great for my party of 55; and the food and drinks were delicious. Afterwards some people stuck around after the party for the Friday night karaoke- that was incredible. My co-workers were really impressed and had a great time. I highly recommend Revival and I will definitely return for dinner and karaoke!

We held a holiday party in Revival this past December, and I could not have been happier. The food was incredible, exactly as we had hoped. The music was rocking, people were mingling and dancing, and the ambiance was great. The best reason to go to Revival though, is the staff. Everyone was so helpful and friendly, they really wanted our event to be a great success, and it was. The location has a great Harlem feel, check out their mission and business philosophy on their website. Parking was easy, there were plenty of seating options, restrooms, coat check, projector screen, etc. for a nice classy event. Theres a beautiful bar/lounge section, and a funky dining space that has a great design aesthetic. I will certainly bring back future business to Revival (and will come by for dinner), due to their attention to detail and tasty cuisine.

We have had dinner and brunch at Revival very often, which led to having a party in the Revival Lounge. OUTSTANDING! My guests are still talking about the food and service. I highly recommend Revival for all your special event needs. If you are having dinner I also recommend my favorite dish, which is seafood baked in a light filo dough. Scrumptious!

After a long and stressful day in the office, we wondered to the bar and had a mama mango martini and cocotini. It was so incredibly good! My friend and I shared the salmon wrapped scallops and the calamari appetizers. The bartender, Ashley was so charming, knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend this place!

Happened to visit friend in Harlem and decided to have dinner in neighborhood restaurant. We had Crusted Chilean Sea bass and Sizzler lobster tail. Both were delicious. They also have full-page martini selection, which is worth going for. There were only two servers, considering it is good size restaurant but service was fast and courteous. I would definitely go back for sure.

It's a little pricey and I don't like everything. Sometimes it's a little too rich for me. But, most of the time, I really like the food. Lastly, I'm not crazy about restaurants that take it upon themselves to add the gratuity, since I always tip very well on my own.

For the most part I enjoyed my dining experience at Revival (not to be confused with the bar on 15th). There entrees are a very interesting combination of sweet, salty and many flavors in between. The desert menu is awesome! The raspberry truffle and passion fruit puree are to die for! Everything is just right and nothing is overdone.

The only thing that made the night a bit less than enchanting was the fact that the service was so slow (there were only two wait-persons).
