Chef Sophina Uong currently at Revival/Berkeley

tre2012 | Apr 10, 2015 09:24 AM

We ate at Revival in 2013 and found the food wildly uneven. Being fans of Chef Uong, when we heard she was filling in for Ms. Murray at Revival we immediately made plans to return.

Went for dinner on 3/12 and just as she did at Pican, Ms. Uong has brought Revival's kitchen up a full notch. Not perfect, but the food is finally moving forward and evening out to be less inconsistent.

We had the chance to talk with her and she mentioned she brought quite a few of her staff along. Tentative plans are for her to remain thru mid-June 2015.

The restaurant menu was a little different from the website menu, but reasonably close. We especially loved the Dungeness crab porridge, Nettle-fava bean leaf soup, Mixed grill, and dessert (which was sensational!).

I just posted a full review on Yelp dated 4/09, giving 4 stars (yeah, I'm always behind on posting...sigh). There's still a ways for Revival to go, but the signs are encouraging.
