Revivalist is a throwback to a historic Huntsville tavern that once occupied this location and embodied the parlor culture of the era. Today, generous portions of old-time hospitality and attentive service are served with a menu that is considerably more modern—inspired by European classics and American regionalism.

    It was a memorable experience for my mother and I. We sat outside and it was beautiful. Not too hot and very intimate. We felt special. The staff were amazing, to include the chef, and the food was delicious. We will be back.

    They overbook their reservations so we weren’t seated until 6:15pm for a 5:30pm reservation. Two of us had to sit at the bar and two at a table.

    I travel extensively and entertaining at meals is a significant portion of what I do so I offer honest feedback seriously, in the hopes of helping good places get noticed and poor ones improve. We ate here on our way to an event in Huntsville at the Von Braun center. We were seated on time by a polite hostess. We typically enjoy a drink before looking at the menu so as not to rush through dinner. Our server seemed a little less than pleased when I mentioned this to her. She left for over twenty minutes, before bringing our drinks. Like too many other American restaurants, Revivalist seemed more eager to move us along, than provide a good dining experience. (I still tipped at 20%) Also, like many of their contemporaries, their wine list was poor at best and overpriced. They paid zero attention to vintage years. If wine is an important part of your meal bring your own and pay a corking fee. I had an extremely tart Moscow Mule served in a glass, not in a copper mug, so what's the point? My wife's Rose' was fine. We both had a red meat dish, mine beef, her's pork risotto. My medium arrived medium rare, her dish was fine. The interior walls are hard brick so the noise bounces around making it tough to hear. This restaurant has received very high marks but it is only average in my experience. You'll pay slightly higher than average prices, but the service and meal won't match the price.

    Food was amazing! Service was slow…I believe they were shorthanded. But despite that we still had an amazing time. The staff that was there handled it well!

    I’ve dined here several times since it opened and I’ve noticed a drop in item availability relative to the menu and a slip in service, especially in the last few months. The last 2 times, the wine I selected from the menu was not available but they were quick to offer an alternative- always at a significantly higher price. When provided the menu, we should have been made aware of limited or unavailable items. The last time I went, the wait staff mixed tap and bottled spring water in our glasses. I had to ask for the check twice, then find a server to process it so we could make our event. Our meal was early and there was only one other table seated so a busy floor was not the reason. I will give it one more shot in hopes of an experience similar to what I had shortly after it opened where the dining experience matched the price point.
