About Restaurant R'evolution
New Orleans, LA 70130
Serving Dinner daily, Sunday Jazz Brunch and Friday Lunch (Wed.-Fri. in December) 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

Restaurant R'evolution was highly recommended by friends and family as a restaurant not to be missed. They were so right. The service and food were outstanding. This is our new favorite place to dine while in New Orleans.

We had oysters revolution style. Probably would have preferred the plain ones, as I wasn't that crazy about the toppings on the oysters, but the oysters themselves were great. Next we shared the Triptych of Quail with a side of truffle mashed potatoes. The quail was excellent and just right for two people. (The potatoes were good, not quite as good as the quail.) Next we shared three scoops of ice cream The toasted marshmallow flavor was outstanding. The chocolate coconut and cinnamon were okay. Last they brought us a complimentary dessert sampler. These were of varying quality, but we enjoyed trying them.

The food was very good, the service was outstanding, and great atmosphere. I won't lie, it was very pricey, way out of our range and if it were not for a gift card we would not have been able to go. Worth it for an anniversary or a really special occasion.

The food and the service were impeccable. We've eaten in the top restaurants in Manhattan (Eleven Madison, Le Bernardin, Daniel etc) and this was on par with the best. It was high quality local food with exquisite attention to detail. We would definitely go again, maybe even during this same trip!

We have been there several times and they were a little off their game this visit. Service was slow and the team was not as pulled together as we had seen on previous occasions. Hopefully just an off night in a very good restaurant.

Trying to be a five star but trying to hard. Service was slow even with a light late brunch crowd. Food was good but not particularly special. There is much better in New Orleans for a lower cost. It isn't a place we will return.

The food and service are superb! Everyone from the Hostess/Maitre'D to the Waitstaff and Management was inviting, knowledgeable and so personable. Each course was remarkable, and the French 75's were perfect! The maple bread pudding with creme brulee topping was to-die-for! What a special place for a perfect meal.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining here on our vacation to New Orleans last week. The atmosphere was very romantic and yet approachable. Our waiter, Kevin, was friendly and knowledgeable and helped guide us through the menu's adventurous options. The food was amazing! Well done everyone at Revolution!

We had dinner at Restaurant R'evolution while visiting NoLA. The oysters are quite possibly the best we have ever had. We also had espresso beef carpaccio and steak tartare. For dinner my husband had beef Wellington and I had scallops and foie gras. Everything was really really good. I would recommend everyone to get the oysters and beef tartare. They also gave us a tour of the kitchen, dining rooms and wine cellar which was nice. I would go back when in town next.

We were in town for a business convention and the only thing we had on our list as an absolute MUST is to eat again at R'evolution. We have only done brunch (this visit and one about 3 years ago) and both times were unequivocally amazing. The atmosphere, the service, the menu, and the food quality are top tier. Not to be missed. Great for any occasion. We will be back on our next visit, that I can promise.

We had a table for four Jan 21 2017. chose for proximity to the Monteleone hotel where we were staying. It really is an excellent restaurant. Very good service, and an extensive menu. Good wine list. the meal was expensive, but to be expected from such a fine restaurant.

This is our 4th time to visit this restaurant and they remembered our preferences for which room we liked to sit in and even called us the week before we were to dine there to see if it was a special occasion or any new food allergies. The Market Room is a great room to sit in if you like to see the happenings behind the kitchen! The quality of the food was just as spectacular as the other times we dined there and we will continue to have dinner there each time we are in the New Orleans area. Make sure you get an advanced reservations as it still fills up quickly during the 7-8 PM timeframe due to its popularity!

Outstanding food, wine, service and ambiance. This is one of the very best kitchens in the French Quarter along with being at the top of all "must dine" at lists in NOLA. The place is architecturally stunning and begins with a pre-dinner cocktail in the bar which stocks a vast collection of anything containing ETOH. All-in-all, a fabulous experience resulting in a longing to return once again very soon.

I know NOLA has a lot of restaurants to choose from so I really did my homework to find this one. It was rated highly among critics and prior guests so I was very excited to dine there. Unfortunately I was quite disappointed. Our reservation was on a Thursday night at 9:00 pm so I expected to be seated on time. We arrived 15 minutes early but had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Then after being seated, it was another 8-10 minutes before a server first approached our table. My friend and I decided to order 4 appetizers and split them assuming that would be a lot to eat for 2 ladies. The bread was served yet there was no silverware or napkins on the table so I had to ask for them. Rather than apologizing, our server said "we don't set the tables with silverware until we serve our first course". That is fine, however, napkins? The bread was very crusty and a napkin over my nice dress would have been nice. The appetizers, while tasty, were barely enough for one bite each but each item was $16+. We left hungry and won't return.

We didn't originally intend to go to this restaurant, but we're sure glad we wound up there! Their Old Fashioned was outstanding and the service was incredible, too. We started talking with the floor manager and he arranged a private tour of the restaurant and wine cellar. We felt like long-time customers even though it was our first visit. The food was some of the best I've ever had. It is a bit too pricey for a weekly trip, but it is so worth the experience. Highly recommended!
