About Restaurant R'evolution
Serving Dinner daily, Sunday Jazz Brunch and Friday Lunch Restaurant R’evolution is the first joint venture of award-winning chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto, offering modern, imaginative reinterpretations of classic Cajun and Creole cuisine. Steeped in the diverse historic and cultural influences of Louisiana, the menu features not only the chef’s interpretations of New Orleans classics such as gumbo, po’ boys, and beignets, but also new creations highlighting ingredients from what Chef Folse refers to as “the swamp floor pantry.” Table-side service components play an important role in the dining experience, promoting guest engagement about the history and evolution of the food they are enjoying. Soups such as Creole Louisiana Snapping Turtle Soup and Death by Gumbo play on unusual presentations of these traditional dishes that date back centuries. Desserts showcase classical New Orleans sweets done in a new and contemporary way.

Had a wonderful dinner at Restaurant R'evolution on our latest visit to New Orleans. It's easily our favorite place to enjoy a special dinner. We've been multiple times and have never been disappointed. This time we especially enjoyed the Lemon Posset for dessert!

I've been on this earth for 40yrs, I was raised in my families French American restaurant. This was the the greatest dining experience - EVER!!! I've dined all over the US but NOTHING compares to the food, service and ambiance at R'evolution. I pray they open a location in Chicago!!!

I've been here on 2 separate occasions while visiting New Orleans. The service is phenomenal, the food is always amazing, and the staff is some of the best you will find anywhere. Our server Kevin went above and beyond to make sure that we had a great time and enjoyed our meal. Our entire group agreed it was an experience we will never forget and that we must duplicate again the next time we are in town. Wonderful, wonderful food and fabulous service!!

Outstanding anniversary dinner from entry to exit! Delicious & creative items such as "Death By Gumbo" & "Crab Beignets" (4 excellent tasting sauces for 4 crab beignets!). Great choices on the wine list. Special touches like the ornamental drawers that contained about a half dozen amazing house made cookies and brownies. Put Restaurant R'Evolution on your NOLA list of places you need to visit!!

Outstanding experience! The setting is just lovely - it's a beautiful restaurant. The service was excellent, with 3 people dedicated to each table. I ordered the fried oyster salad and I do believe it was the best fried oysters I've ever had! They were wonderfully crispy and delicious and light, and the salad had 2 whole slices of bacon on top and a nice light drizzle of blue cheese dressing. My colleague got the crab beignets, which were also perfectly cooked with a crispy texture and delicious crab taste. For dinner, I had the bouillabaisse with shrimp, mussels and fish and andouille sausage in a tomato broth. The seafood was perfectly cooked and the broth was incredible. We had a side of fries, which I continuously dunked in my broth. We skipped dessert so we could go to Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee - but the dessert menu looked amazing. This restaurant is a wonderful example of New Orleans food with a modern twist - it's a definite must!

the restaurant was adequate, but as far as other comparable restaurants, I do not think it compared favorable. very noisy, decent but not outstanding service, and nothing memorable. the small 70th birthday party was nearly ignored. we were kept waiting at the reception area with no explanation as to why. they forget the champagne that has been previously ordered and having once filled the flutes, none of us ever saw the bottle again. and there were only 3 people, certainly one small flute did not empty the bottle! we were never asked about ordering additional wine and in general were ignored. altogether not a good experience and we will not return.

We have eaten at this restaurant numerous times. This last visit was a disaster. After waiting overlong for our entrees our waiter says that he check on my lamb chops and "was yelled at by the kitchen to get out." Upon finally receiving my medium rare chops I find that they are completely burned black on the underside an inedible. The waiter served me this burned food then returned to ask how it was. I showed him the meat and his response was, "I knew they were burned that's why I came to check on you." He then gave me a menu and told me to "order something fast, like a soup or a salad."
This treatment is something I wouldn't accept from a fast food restaurant and I find it totally unacceptable in a fine dining restaurant.

My wife & I had our Anniversary Dinner on Sunday night the 18th with high expectations of a first class meal. We have eaten at Tru in Chicago many times with nothing but great memories, so with Rich Tramonto name behind the restaurant we expected nothing but the best. From the beginning to the end was nothing but disappointment. From the amuse, which was a tortilla chip with rare beef, black beans, & some kind of sauce. There was no beef, just a tortilla chip & a few black beans. I had the beef tartar which was poorly executed, and as we left the head waiter said it was his least favorite item on the menu. My wife had the Pate that was very bland with little to no flavor. Thank goodness there was mustard to help it out. I had the foie gras (peaches & cream) which was nicely presented but was nothing but a very over the top plate of sugar. Everything was super sweet then was finished with turbinado sugar. My wife's entree was the scallops & foie gras which was room temperature when it finally arrived. I had the bouillabaisse for my entree which was ok. By this time the serve know food was coming out slow & we never finished any of our courses and we were ready to leave. He brought by a couple glasses of wine to help smooth things over but it was to late. To finish the meal the jewelry box with petite fours were stale, dried out and stuck to the bottom of the drawers like they get reused if not eaten. To say the least it was a bad experience and left us in a bad mood on our 22nd wedding anniversary dinner.

I think that the service was over the top. I don't require 3 waiters. Someone was always there. When I made the reservation, I requested 6 PM. I was told that 6 PM was not available. 6:15 PM was acceptable, so I booked it only to find that we arrived at the restaurant at 6:15 PM the restaurant was almost empty. That's the second time that has happened with us at that restaurant, I don't understand it.

Terrible. Sent back vinegar $85 wine - it was brought decanted without asking us, said it had to "level" (whatever that meant). The "signature dish" of "quail-three-ways" was so firm, I couldn't cut it and taste (after picking it up) did not entice me to finish it. Other "specials" among our table of four were, mostly, equally below average --- and this was a dinner which cost over $100/pp!!!

Restaurant R'evolution is a wonderful dining experience. The staff are friendly and our waitstaff were very happy to explain any questions we had about the menu.
We had a slight snafu with one of our entrees but the restaurant manager made it right for our table. Do not hesitate to dine in this fine restaurant, you will not be disappointed. The food is creative and delicious and the dining experience is one that you will not forget.

This restaurant has extraordinary service and the decor is breathtaking. The food is undeniably one of the finest in the city. I recently celebrated my 38th birthday at Revolution and the food was so rich, I had a bit of a hangover the next day. I had the 9 oz. filet mignon with truffle butter and it was exquisite. I recommend this restaurant to anyone for a special occasion.

Each visit is a wonderful experience for the many we have been to dinner there. Menu always fresh and very tasty...wine parings by Erin are always outstanding and a great learning experience for all at the table--

We went for our anniversary, and they pulled out all the stops. Everything we ordered was amazing, and we had a few extras thrown in by staff. Our waiter was the perfect level of attentive (though he probably should warned us we ordered tad too food :)) An excellent NOLA welcome! Wouldn't hesitate to go back!

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Restaurant R'evolution and it was fantastic!
I had the turtle soup with the quail eggs that melted in my mouth. He ordered the ribeye for an entree and I had the triptych of quail which was quail in a balsamic glaze, one stuffed with boudin and the last was fried. I need a new word to replace the absolute deliciousness of this dish.
The service was impeccable and attentive. The decor sublime. I will definitely return to this restaurant the next time I am in NOLA and you should too!

Service started out bad with us sitting for over 20mins before someone came by the table. After I complained the service was great the rest of the night. I feel that if you are going to spend $800 on dinner, then the service should be excellent. If I wanted poor service and canned food I would have eaten at McDs and save $775.
The food was great...the bread selection sucks though.
Their wine list is quite extensive but they are higher than giraffe pu$$y. They mark up their wine more than anybody in the quarter. A bottle of Opus One retails around $295. They had it for $800. A bottle of Cain Five retails for about $100. They had it for $475. Ridiculous. Doris Metropolitan is a way better restaurant and their Opus is $475. Stop raping people Restaurant Revolution.

Creative menu with inventive twists on hand-crafted traditional Louisiana favorites. The Cracklin' Crusted Shrimp N' Grits is outstanding. The pricing per menu item is a bit on the high side but the value makes up for this perceived gap. However, $10.00 for a double espresso is a bit over the top.
