About Restaurant R'evolution
Serving Dinner daily, Sunday Jazz Brunch and Lunch on Fridays 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.

Restaurant R'evolution Ratings and Reviews
One of the best meals I have ever had! The restaurant is gorgeous with a fantastic atmosphere. The good is exquisitely presented and delicious! The service is outstanding and hands down THE best o have experienced in my life of frequent dining in New Orleans. Could not rate it any better and cannot wait to return!
I have been hearing how great this restaurant is. I must have had my sights set too high because the food just didn't make me swoon. Death by gumbo is a creative form of gumbo with a stuffed quail. It was a stuffed quail with smooth gumbo gravy outed over it. The stuffing (rice) was minimal (less than a tablespoon total and was a bizarre smooth texture. It really was nothing like traditional gumbo, in structure. The mixed salad with crispy vegetables had a very tasty dressing and the veggies were all refreshingly fresh. The croutons were stale or just not crisped up enough, but I don't normally eat them anyways. Service was excellent and they treat you right. I think the food was just lacking at this price point.
This was our second trip to the restaurant. We went back because it was such an incredible experience the first time. In fact, my sweetheart popped the big question at the restaurant. The staff is so wonderful. They even remembered us a year later and gave us the same table where he proposed. The food is excellent. The scallops are a great and The rabbit perfectly cooked. The drinks are nice and stiff. I just can't say enough good things about the place. And, I can be a bit of a snob. Thank you everyone at Revolution. See you next year!
Outstanding restaurant. Very creative and comprehensive menu. Truly something for everyone. Expensive but worth the cost considering what is prepared. Nicely decorated and pleasant but not fussy ambiance. Service was attentive but not annoying. Worth a special visit.
There for Sunday Brunch. The food was very very very very very very very good and the service was also very very very very very very very very good. The boudin scotch egg was very very very very very very awesome! And the duck fat hash, forget about it, cause it was also very very very good. There's your 50 words open table!
What a place! We started with the gumbo, fantastic...the quail was perfectly cooked in the death by Gumbo and so tasty. My wife had the red fish Orleans and found it amazing, I had the Rabbit Natchez and was also very well done. We had no sides and were the better for it as we were stuffed at the end, however we did indeed share the creole cream cheese bread pudding, this was the weakest part of the meal but at that point we really didn't care because the rest was so damn good! The servers were also tremendous and had great enthusiasm and helpful in explaining the menu and dishes.
Our party of six greatly enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious!
Service was friendly and efficient, but for a fine dining establishment in New Orleans, surprisingly inexperienced and unprofessional (second bottle of wine was not offered for tasting and instead poured into the same glasses holding the remnants of the first bottle; a server drew attention to a butter knife dropped by one of my guests rather than discretely providing a fresh knife: a server did not have a white napkin available for a guest wearing white [the server offered to get one but he should have arrived at the table prepared], etc.).
This is the best dining experience in New Orleans. From the moment you walk through the front door you know that you are about to experience truly special experience. Start with a craft cocktail, the likes of which you can't experience anywhere else. The staff is just the right amount of attentive, never intrusive, but there when you need them. The food is simply perfect. From the amuse bouche to the surprise at the end of the meal you will end your evening knowing you have enjoyed the best this City has to offer. A special shout out to Kevin, Luke and Isaac, you took such excellent care of me. It is not always comfortable dining alone, but I had a terrific evening. Thank you.
Hands-down one of the if not "THE BEST" restaurant in New Orleans. From Luis the front manager to Brooke the Beverage Manager and Alex P (captain) to all the staff are well versed on the menu, service and food. Everyone here makes your experience OUTSTANDING>> Crab Beneits are to die for as is the Fried Oyster Salad is a true delight! I had the blacken filet-cooked to perfection with side bone marrow added a true delight to my meal. Husband had the Cajun Cioppino filled with Shrimp, Clams, Mussels, Crawfish, Blue Crab Lollipop in Spicy Fish Stew-OUTSTANDING... Third visit this time and each time is PERFECTION! Love the pressed coffee and homemade ice creams
Wait staff was almost condescending and over attentive. I changed my reservations via open table app arrived with no reservation request. Hostess was very accommodating and reassurance with seating. Enjoy good fortune to return to Revolution 4 visit look forward to visiting many more years
I was disappointed that the Coolinary offering did not include dessert or choices. More importantly, I was disappointed in the service. The food was delicious, especially the shrimp and the french fries. The ice cream was scrumptious. But that is what I expect from a restaurant with the reputation this one has.
Crab beignets were so light and tasty!
Was disappointed with the scallops entree with the celery salad which didn't go together. Scallops were very salty too.
Nothing special with Brussels sprouts/bacon.
Great selection of sorbets and ice creams.
Enjoyed the special plate of candies and cookies at the conclusion of the dinner.
