This is the second trip to Revel and it just gets better. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and I am happy to see more places like this coming into Danville! The staff is friendly and so helpful...now on to the food. The first time we weren't really eating full meals and decided to split a couple of things: deviled eggs, shrimp and grits and the short rib. Everything was amazing and we cleaned the plates! The only thing I would say is a negative was the price on the shrimp and grits...it seemed high for what we were served. There were 4 nice shrimp, but I am a carb lover and I would have loved a more generous serving of the grits.
Our second experience at Revel was even better. We love the beer selection on draft but were unsure and our very helpful server provided us samples of a few we were interested in. Smart! We split the kale salad and it was delicious! Everything mixed together so well...we cleaned the plate! I had eyed the lobster slider on the last trip and new that is what I wanted. It was amazing. The bread was perfectly toasted and the avocado mouse was so tasty. I also loved the slaw served with it, it had lime and cilantro and very fresh tasting salad. It was served in a very little cup, I could have had more! It was served with potato chips, but those were just okay, I would have liked it to come with fries. I didn't end up eating the chips because they were just ok. My husband ordered the special on Monday, the fried chicken. I had many tastings from his plate, everything was delicious. That would get me back there any Monday night!! We ended with dessert of beignets. This were light and tasty and a nice end to the dinner. If I had any advice to give I would like to see more sparkling wines by the glass. Again our server was amazing and allowed us to taste test what was available. We live in the area and plan to become regulars!
