First time eating at Revelry, we had a deal voucher and were expecting the bare minimum. Got awesome value for money, chose the squid and it was the best coating I’ve ever had. I hate going into the city for dinner because of parking and it being busy, but would never turn down going to Revelry Bar, we also had the ribs and dumplings, ribs fell off the bone and were divine.

Gorgeous for dinner, or cocktails. It’s lovely that they can actually transition from dinner to vibrant night scene! Some places fail to do so and it’s usually the dinner service and food that underwhelms. The service is consistently fantastic.

Nice decor in this place and a neat little venue in Ponsonby. The food was delicious and a great mix of ethnic foods. Went with a voucher and service was friendly. Quite pricey without a voucher as the dishes are like tapas and very small. We had the pork belly, fried chicken, Indian rice and fish. Doesn’t have an extensive menu so probably more suited for drinks and a snack rather than a full dinner.

In any case a nice upmarket place, would be good for a casual business drinks function after work.

Tried this out with deal voucher. The customer service is superb from the time I called to make reservation till the end. The vege burger that I ordered is one of the best I have tried if not the best. The deco is also really good and interesting. Would highly recommend this place to anyone and will surely go back for their yummy vege burger.

I have started coming here over the last few months and it’s started to become my Ponsonby local.

Decor it fun with great outdoor seating, extensive wine list and it’s great to be able be offered a sample before purchasing a bottle if your looking to try something new.

Service is fast and friendly so I’ll keep coming back .

Nice setting and décor but let down by miserable pours for the drinks. I got two glasses of house bubbly and when I mentioned to the barman that the tide seemed to be out he explained that I had received a generous pour. Not a good look when the bubbly only fills 2/3 of the glass.

Stumbled across this place a few weeks ago and ended having a great night. Ive been back a couple of times since and each time I’ve really enjoyed myself. Fast and friendly service. Keep up the good work Revelery!

Called in to Revelry last night to catch up with some friends who had been there the weekend before. Arrived around 10pm and the place was in full swing, music was great, and I loved the indoor/outdoor fireplace! We stood around a table on the balcony, it wasn’t a cold night, but I was still thankful for the overhead heating! Service was snappy and the cocktails tasted great, the owner even came up to us and made sure we were enjoying ourselves. I like the personal touch, a welcoming surprise to the Ponsonby night scene!

9/10 at least

After a hard day at the office we opted to stay in Ponsonby – heading to our usual spot this bar caught our eye so we decided to take a risk and try something new

We were greeted by a member of staff within seconds who sat us by the cozy fire and supplied us with menus. Our meals and wine (wine – that was suggested by staff as a match for our meals) arrived in a surprisingly short amount of time considering how busy the venue was.

After finishing our meals we ended up dancing until the small hours, every inch of the night wishing I had worn flat shoes

If you are after a quirky evening in a warm environment, where the staff go out of their way to get to know your name and on top of that go the extra mile to cater to your needs – Revelry is the place to be

We will definitely be back soon

It’s a sad day when you feel that the best treatment received in an establishment is from the doorman. I was looking forward to finally having an alternate unpretentious watering hole on Ponsonby rd, but to no avail. The service was slow, the music (very bad as it was) too loud, the staff extremely rude and the managers/owners where behaving like they had had more than just cocktails.

All this before 10pm. I doubt I will be back as the 10 or so friends with me. The old idea of people spreading the word about service is true, enjoy yourself and you’ll tell ten people, have a bad time and you’ll tell 100.

1 out 10. (they sold beer0.

Chivalry may be dead but Revelry is not!

This bars decor hosts a mash up of lush oriental meets grandma’s antiques closet goods.

The music is chilled and the wait staff are attentive without being over bearing.

We shared a small antipasto platter and the bean dip – delish! All washed down with a Gin.

Ponsonby road needs more bars like this one!!!

I’ll definitely be back :)
