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
Revolution offers gourmet dining in the busy Royal Sonesta Hotel atmosphere . The presentation and service is excellent . The menu selection was exotic cuisine selections include stuffed frog legs, rabbit, quail, pheasant, and shortbreads. Very expensive . The Death by Gumbo is wonderful as was the wine selection. The dessert cabinet was a real treat. Overall I could have ordered Gumbo and dessert .
My mom and I finished up our weeklong trip with dinner here. Definitely on the pricey side but for the dining experience its expected. After a small seared tuna amuse bouche, we shared "death by gumbo" since we didn't want to miss out on the gumbo experience, and it was really good. Watch out for little bones from the stuffed quail leg. My mom's filet mignon was perfectly cooked, my seafood cioppino was delicious. For dessert we had some crème brûlée cheesecake I think... it was good but I didn't think it was anything as amazing as some people's reviews had said. A nice treat at the end was a box with little drawers revealing various cookie/candy surprises. I regret not asking for a tour of the wine cellar- after having dined there, a bartender we spoke to at our hotel asked us if we had seen the cellar- I think over 10,000 bottles of wine including bottles valued at $25,000...? wow. I wonder if they bring in a parade to celebrate, when you order that!
Food and service was exceptional. Our server Rory was the highlight of the evening. His familiarity with the menu, the history behind each meal, restaurant details, and all drawn up with an authentic New Orleans zest. Amazing how an elevated dining experience can still leave you feeling like you were the only one dining in the room. Nothing disappoints, not from your appetizer to your final course. We will be back real soon!
Very upscale dining room. Wait staff excellent. However food was oddly tasteless. Needed seasoning. Though website listed Beef Wellington it was not available. Filet came with wine sauce, even though I had ordered bernaise, it came on the side. Cold at the table but cooked perfectly MR. Seafood gumbo had very little taste. Turtle soup had off putting Anise flavor. We were treated to a special dessert for our anniversary, after we had ordered dessert.
Overall beautiful restaurant but food was a letdown.
We went over the weekend to celebrate my husband's birthday with my daughter and a very good friend from Nashville and San Francisco. It is a favorite of ours and it did not disappoint. The ladies arrived early and enjoyed a new drink at the bar and loved them. Our table was perfect and the noise level was moderate, but we never had trouble talking and hearing on another. We of course had the crab beignets because they are a must have. The quail and the chioppino were new I think and were divine. The foie gras butter is amazing but be prepared - it must be 2000 calories to taste that good!! Wine list excellent and extensive. Desserts are yummy and light enough to enjoy after a meal. Would recommend sharing the appetizer or salad if you plan on dessert. At the end when you think you are through eating, you get a nice little treasure chest of homemade treats that you just can't resist so keep that in mind. Then they brought my husband a Birthday Dessert!! So yes, maybe we overindulged with the food just a little!! This really is all around probably our favorite place to spend an evening in New Orleans. The staff is attentitive, knowledable and never intrusive. We love that we see the same people time and time again!! Our daughter and her friend were still talking about it the next day!!
Our team of Anthony, Rory and Ishmael were fantastic and it was so much fun. Beautiful surroundings and delicious food. Our anniversary was great and the special box at the end...let's just say they do things a little more risqué in New Orleans!!!
Coming from SF our standards are high. This place blew us away. In classic southern style, the food was not light by any means, but boy was it delicious!!! The menu was extremely creative making it hard to narrow down our options. The staff was friendly, informative and passionate. Wish I lived in this city just so I could come back sooner! Far more memorable than Commander's Palace, which we had the night before.
Our Tuna and Scallops entrees were excellent as was the appetizers of Gumbo w/ Quail soup and raw oysters. The gulf fish w/ mint sauce was too busy, really no flavor and a tough textured fish - not soft or flaky. Unsure if drawback was the fish or mint sauce or the combination. The actual fish in the dish was not described. That dish was disappointing and told that to Brian. Just glad as host of the table (my Birthday) I ordered it and not one of our guests. But will return just maybe more cautious selecting my entrée. The Woodenhead Pinot Noir was excellent.
