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
Very disappointed in the dress code. My wife and I always follow the dress code and enjoy dressing up for nice restaurants. The restaurant called to confirm our reservation and reminded us of the "business casual" dress code. On this night we saw several people wearing jeans, tee shirts and even saw a guy in the dining room in shorts and other guy with a hoodie. This is a nice restaurant and I understand everyone needs the business, but the dress code should be enforced. Brad - New Orleans, La.
It is impossible to decide which was better; the service or the food. The service was the best I have experienced in years. Attentive, informative, and friendly. The food was creative, eye catching, and very tasteful. I would recommend Restaurant R'evolution to everyone and cannot wait to go back.
Delicious cauliflower and hazelnut salad. My rabbit schnitzel was fun and fantastic with a cheese spatzle that the whole table loved. The scallops fois gras and truffle were rich and wonderful. A beautiful French chardonnay and we will definitely be back. Wonderful service as well. A great restaurant
We dined here on recommendatuon to try "death by gumbo"by a woman who we met in airport and lives part time in Oakland, CA and Mississippi.
I loved the ambience and service was top shelf! The food amazing and delicious! The dessert jewelry box with array of swewt delights a lovely way to end the meal.
Was here visiting for my birthday with friends and family and chose this restaurant for one of our dinner spots. It was recommended by a friend, and was highly reviewed, plus was the restaurant at our hotel. The evening started bad by sitting me in a chair that had sunk in cushions. I rated it low for ambiance because it was absolutely freezing. The air was blowing right on us, and even though we asked them to turn it down, the just didn't, so we were uncomfortable. The food was sub par, so sub par that I honestly cannot even remember what I had. Plus we got there for a 9 o'clock and didn't leave until after 12, because they took so long to bring the food. We learned that the two kitchens were having some dispute between them that caused the delay. They just forgot about us. When we finally received our meal it was lukewarm. We were actually the last people to leave the dining room. The desserts were absolutely awful, and we each chose something different. Their attempts to be creative, failed with lack of flavor and bizarre presentations. They took forever to bring the coffee and tea, and did not bring it together, or with the desserts. All of this occurred even though we were being serviced by 3 staff. The only good thing was one of our waiters, whose name I unfortunately cannot remember. He was very helpful and attentive. Even after they said they would comp the meal, they had the nerve to bring us a bill for the desserts and appetizers. Ultimately, the whole meal was comped after we complained. This restaurant was definitely not worth the value, and I cannot believe people have rated the food so highly. We found nothing special about this place. Please spend your money elsewhere.
There are so many outstanding restaurants in NO. R'evolution had positive recommendations on New Orleans Eats, great food, romantic, Death by Gumbo.... for $18.00! I made a lunch reservation to start our anniversary celebration. The red fish and dirty rice were tasty, but the fish portion was tiny. The clams and linguini was a better choice. I really wanted to like this restaurant but overall it was just OK and expensive for the experience.
Outstanding meal - we heard about this restaurant from a friend and were visiting from out of town so decided to try it. The food was excellent. We were treated like special guests by the staff, which was very nice. Our only complaint would be that there were so many different wait staff/others who were swarming around our table at different times that we were a little unsure whom was our actual waiter. I ordered a coffee which I never received, but other than that it was an excellent experience and we would recommend it to others!
The service was really good and the ambiance was nice. The food was good but not anything amazing but perhaps I ordered poorly (baked oysters, tuna, shrimp and grits). The gumbo was probably the best thing I had and that was really tasty. The specialty old fashioned was also really good and unique. It's centrally located as well.
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.
One of, if not, the best dining experience I’ve ever had in a restaurant. Everything was fabulous. The Death by Gumbo was phenomenal. The Cioppino was very tasty. White Chocolate Bread Pudding Creme Brûlée was as decedent and rich as it sounds. Fire Roasted Oysters are delicious. Overall great experience.
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.).
