Revel is more like a café--lots of windows and light in the front, a patio onto the street. Food is good, accessible, and the bartenders and servers are attentive. A good, solid option for a casual meal in Danville.

I'm so glad we decided to go to Revel to celebrate our friends birthday. The food was outstanding and the staff top notch! We have been raving about all weekend. I forgot our waiters name but he was fab. Tell him Thank you from our gang!

My only complaint is that I was facing the wall with a photo of fish heads. Not pretty. Would not do that again. Other than that everything was great. Food was really good. We went early on Saturday night so it wasn't too crowded but even as the restaurant began to fill up we did not feel like we were sitting on top of the next table and we could still hear each other. And the parking is close.

Great Danville hot spot. Thoroughly enjoyed the shrimp n' grits as well as the tomato burrata small plates. Other guests loved the salmon dinner special. Only improvement would be from the bar - our cocktails were watered-down.

Service was excellent! We decided to gradually order different appetizers to split and everything we tried was great. I think our favorite was the fried chicken sliders. $120 for 3 cocktails, 1 glass of wine, 6 oysters, chicken wings, truffle fries, fried chicken sliders, and deviled eggs (with tax). Outside was perfect temperature!

Second visit to Revel. Food is very good. Four of us - ordered a variety of different small plates and shared. Deviled eggs were great. Chicken sliders super tasty. Meatballs - very good. My little gems salad was very good-fresh-yum.
The others ordered big plates as well as the mushroom soup - all were pleased with their choices.
Nice meal and great weather to sit outside in the evening. Our server was great - attentive and helpful. We will be back.

It was very nice outdoor seating and the food was delicious. Many options to choose from, weekly specials too. Wine list was great, price was above average. Staff was courteous and kind, very prompt. They were also pet friendly which I personally enjoyed.
Great dining experience, food and service
Something for everyone - soups, salads, appetizers, small plates (hot & cold), full entrees, along with special cocktails, a lovely wine menu and great beer selections. SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT! Indoor and outdoor dining, booths, tables and community tables. Excellent service from the receptionist to bartenders and servers.
Great first time experience
The food was wonderful. We had oysters from Marin, fresh and flavorful. The deviled eggs were favorites. Cocktails were inventive. We were really happy to see the COPA America soccer game displayed at the bar - thank you Revel! Service was excellent, attentive and not overbearing. Recommend the homemade pasta and the cassoulet.

Superb food. Excellent service. Relaxed, friendly ambiance. I like the booths. Love the music selection. It can get a little loud and you can't hear the music and it's difficult to hear your dinner partner. All in all, one of my favorites.
Best birthday dinner
Nichole was our server and she was fantastic. She easily toured us through the menu, selecting popular items for us to enjoy. Nichole also had everything come out in a spaced time so we could enjoy each food at a time. We started with the hummus, which was fantastic. Followed by the avacado bruschetta, that I am still having dreams about! Next was their famous Monday night special the fried chicken sliders, mmmmmmm mmmm! So good! Lastly, we had their fried chicken dinner and shrimp and grits! Delicious! She was very intuitive on when to refill our wine glasses and open our next bottle! Since it was a birthdays celebration she was gracious enough to take a few photos of us. Finally for bday dessert we shared the beinets and butterscotch pudding! My advice, dip those beinets into the pudding! Wowza! I was a happy bday girl!
Overall, we had a fantastic time. Happy and full as we left. Nichole was the perfect host to our experience! Thank you, we will definitely be back.

A bit pricy but this is Danville. Happy servers here. My friend ordered the pork chop. She said it was dry and tasteless. The next week I go back with another friend who ordered the chop, she loved it. I have had three visits with Revel, I haven't been disappointed. I ordered a club soda with a splash of cranberry juice. I get a glass of club soda and a glass of cranberry juice. I'm guessing they're not use to serving non alcohol drinks
Good food but service not so
A group of four for a friends Birthday celebration. The small plates were large portions and very tasty, and the main courses (three of us had the special Salmon) were very good - cooked to perfection. The wine selection was good too. Unfortunately we were let down by the server who seemed to be covering way too many tables and gave us little attention (and had a poor attitude) although we were clearly happy to part with our hard earned cash. Good food but there are alternatives that provide better service.
In Danville? Don't miss this location!
A very good overall experience! The food was fresh and flavorful. Recommend the raw oysters from well-known locations. The lamb sliders were seasoned and cooked to perfection. You cannot leave without trying the short ribs, which I would call the signature dish. Had the shrimp and grits which were passable and a little to heavy for my taste. The only disappointment is the noise level in the restaurant. At 7 pm on a Saturday night, you must shout to communicate with the participants at your table. Not much they can do about that, other than a retrofit.

Greeted and sat instantly, which is always nice. Kyle was our server again, and he is always outstanding! Makes great recommendations on wine and food, without being pushy or over whelming like servers can be sometimes. Steven, the manager, came by and checked on us and man is he awesome!! Very friendly, funny, and just put you in a good mood and made us really enjoy our experience!
Revel is always a delight!
My kids (ages 7 & 5) often make requests to dine at Revel. The kids menu is right on the money. My husband and I enjoy Vespers and oysters each time. This night they rushed the grilled asparagus and it was NOT good. Each spear tasted like propane. The server apologized and did not charge us for them. We were surprised because everything else was amazing. The lamb sliders were delicious. The short ribs never disappoint. It was ALL good! The service staff is always attentive and genuinely nice to my kids!
Delicious & Fun
Staff was very attentive. Heather (our server) and Max (manager) gave great service and were very helpful in assuring that we enjoyed our drinks and meal. We enjoyed the lamb pâté which was new on the menu, and the butterscotch dessert was scrumptious!
A Danville Delight
My wife had been to the restaurant for lunch on a couple of prior occasions but we had never gone there for dinner. I was able to secure a reservation for a Friday evening and was very pleased with the experience. One of the signature cocktails--the Harry Belafonte--was a pleasant surprise. The fish of the day--Salmon with small potatoes and asparagus--was excellent. The deviled eggs were appropriately but not overly spicy. My wife's burger was likewise well prepared and I had the other half of it for lunch the following day. The dessert menu looked promising but we passed. Service was prompt. Not inexpensive (just over $80 for two drinks, one appetizer and two entrees) but not out of line either. We will certainly return.
Great food, good vibe.
Had an excellent meal with a very competent waitress and staff. Good menu choices, with small and large plates. Fried chicken biscuit sliders were awesome, and the pot roast was melt-in-your mouth good. Bar scene was fun to watch from our table. Outdoor seating available, but it was a little chilly the night we went. Would definitely go back.
One of our favorite restaurants in Danville
We love going to Revel's for dinner. The service is always fantastic, servers are very friendly and make you feel at home. The food never disappoints and their Monday night Fried Chicken special cannot be beat... best we've had anywhere. The noise level inside the restaurant can be extremely loud when the restaurant/bar area is full. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Danville area.
A little disappointed
The first thing we noted was the noise level loud very loud . Hostess was friendly and seated us promptly even though we were early waitress very friendly we ordered drinks they were out of a few whiskeys. Appetizers the tuna Tatar was a little to fishy tasting for my taste . Salad was good . Two of us had the special which was salmon we thought it was good the other two people ordered small plates chicken sliders were good chicken wings awful dessert butterscotch pudding yummy we shared wish it came in a bigger portion
Our server, Jennifer was excellent. She suggested wines and food to match that were outstanding pairings and added to the experience. She was timely, but not intrusive.
She also was friendly, but professional. We will be requesting her for a server in future visits.
Revel is consistently good, though our server on this visit was not as good as the usual excellent service we receive. Our only complaint is not enough variety. We have ordered everything on the menu so many times that we can't frequent the restaurant as much as we'd like to.
