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
Restaurant & bar are beautiful but neither my husband or myself enjoyed the dinner. I had the lobster & gnocchi- the sauce was salty but the lobster was tasty. We went there because my husband loves quail but would have preferred it deep fried instead of batter fried. The venison carpaccio appetizer was excellent.
Awesome experience second year in a row, we had the crabmeat beignets with four sauces, outstanding. Our main course was lamb chops for my husband & fillet mignon for myself with a lobster bernaise sauce . Our sides were grilled white & green asparagus with hollandaise sauce on the side & truffle mashed potatoes, both were fabulous. They wait staff Brian & Justine were very attentive & knowledgeable. Will definitely return next year!
Easter brunch was perfect here. There are three different adjoining dining rooms with different decors, but all very elegant. A talented jazz combo moved from one place to the other throughout our stay, so no matter where you were seated, you could watch as well as hear them. The service was wonderful! The food was exquisite. My favorite dish was the snapping turtle soup with deviled quail eggs.
The food was very good and portions were a little smaller than expected but that's not a bad thing. The service was excellent and I only had a small problem with one thing. The waiter wanted to shake my hand and I just don't care for that in that situation but that's me. Overall a great experience. We will definitely go back.
We try to go every time in NOLA. You have got to have the Death by Gumbo. But will say this time the roux was a little thin. We ate at 6 so maybe they had not fully cooked it down.
This trip we ordered the 44 oz tomahawk ribeye for two. Best steak I have ever had dining out, bar none. Unreal flavor.
I have had Ruth Chris, Smith and Wolensky, The Chop House, Doris Metropolitan, Dickie Brennans, Del Frisco's, you name it. Always slightly disappointed because we do such a good job at home. I'm just picky about steak. Lots of places think its ok to char/burn the outside as long as inside is right. If i wanted to eat charcoal, I would order a briquet.
So all that is to say: R' evolution served a perfect medium rare steak with unreal flavor ALL the way through.
One of the best restaurants -- ever. The service, the food, the environment are all perfect. It's not an everyday dining place. It's quite expensive, but well worth it for a special meal. Our reason was merely that our whole family was all together in New Orleans, and it did not fail to bowl me over...for the second time.
We walked right around the corner from out hotel, Royal Sonesta to this delightful spot. Each room has a different theme, we were in the red and white room with the open kitchen view. Seeing the imported hams hanging in the chilled glass front coolers was interested. Seeing the chefs preparing the fresh sulami was even more impressive. The house special oysters on the half shell did not last long in front of us. Loved the entire experience!
It was really a great restaurant and the food were really delicious! The wait staff were great. Very thoughtful when he brought out a dessert for our anniversary and a bubbly wine. It was fun looking at the different selection of food to choose from. We would definitely recommend this place. Hopefully we'll go back again. It's kind of pricey but worth it once for a special occasion.
Dined there April 9th for our anniversary. We were seated at a romantic table. The food was excellent and the service by Travis and his helpers was outstanding. If you enjoy the theatre of great dining and service with a flair, then R'evolution is the place. There are many delicious, creative selections on the menu. My only complaint is the wine prices are high when compared with other top restaurants in New Orleans. But overall we were very happy !
We walked into an elegant dining room luxuriously furnished. It was relatively quiet but our reservations were for 5:30.
We started off with very good house salad with haricot vert and other crispy vegetables. For the entree I enjoyed the crawfish-stuffed redfish Napoleon with
artichoke and oyster stew, with a fried crawfish boulette which melts in your mouth. My husband loved the petite filet mignon which was very nicely prepared with a nice red wine reduction and adequately spiced. We inhaled the delicious chocolate dessert which was rich but very light. The chef included a couple of complimentary items, a small tasting appetizer and a tasty selection of dainty cookies and truffles. Everything was beautifully presented and prepared creatively.
Expect a large bill since everything is a la carte but if we return to New Orleans I would definitely dine there again.
This was our second time to dine at Restaurant R'evolution. Our experience this year was just as wonderful as last year's. Our waiter, Jordan, was incredible. He was not only well-versed in all menu items and able to give great recommendations, he was also a wealth of knowledge about the restaurant: the different dining rooms, the wine cellar, the boardroom and even the kitchen. He also took us on a tour of the restaurant after our dinner. Our food was incredible: scallops, quail, and the visiting fish were the items we ordered (along with several appetizers). And the bread pudding for desert was fabulous. We will be back next year!
The hardest part of our annual NO visits is selecting from the countless great restaurants. It is such fun to try new places that we rarely repeat however after 2 great dinners we will clearly not miss it next time. Elegant yet not stuffy. Service both polished and friendly. We have enjoyed sun brunch and dinner
