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
Food was just ok. Service was ok. Nothing great about this place. Our steaks were lukewarm and very rare. They made it kind of an awkward situation when we asked if they had a dessert menu. They said they didn't and we asked for our check and then they brought two spoons out and said they were bringing us something which never came and then we got our check. It didn't make a lot of since so we just left. Not impressed and wish we didn't celebrate a birthday here. GW Finns is a much better place to go.
From the first bite of the crab beignets, we knew we'd made the right choice in coming here. Ricotta gnocchi with lobster and braised pork cheek were both phenomenal. Sommelier suggested the perfect wines to accompany our food. Dessert was beautifully presented and delicious, but not so huge as to put us over the edge after a very fine meal indeed. Service was outstanding: attentive but not intrusive. Most highly recommended!
Brought our 12 and 16 year old children to NOLA, and this was our first dinner in town. Food was fabulous across the board. Service was perfect balance between solicitous and patient. Wine list was as advertised - had a delightful wine from Montefalco, where my wife and I had celebrated our anniversary several years ago. Definitely would recommend and would love to eat there again!
This was one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. The service was wonderful and very professional. Our waiter was very honest with us, regarding his favorite and least favorite menu items, which was very helpful. The portions were sort of on the smaller side, but my family didn't really want to eat too much anyways because we'd spent the entire day eating the amazing food of New Orleans. Anyways, I'd recommend this place to anyone who enjoys fine dining and nothing but amazing food and service. Also they give this cute box filled with little chocolates and cookies at the end of the meal which was pretty good. (The crab beignets were the best, as well as the peanut butter ice cream).
My husband and I had an excellent dinner. I had the lobster gnocchi and he hand the fish with asian flavors-both were great. They also made a tasty martini! The services was attentive and the ambiance was very nice. This is a great place for a date night or a special occasion.
The food was excellent but I was surprised by the poor service at a restaurant of this caliber. We were kept waiting 15 minutes for our reservation on a Monday night with no apology. When we were seated there was a dead flea on my daughter's plate. When we pointed this out to the waitress she made no apologies, she said that those dishes are just for decoration anyway. Every time she filled our water glasses she spilled water across the tablecloth. It was very chilly in the room, when we asked about adjusting the temperature she just said the restaurant had no control over it. But the worst thing was that when we left we were standing directly outside the entrance when we were accosted by a homeless drunk man. He started to get very aggressive and we were scared so went back inside to wait for our Uber. Our waitress and the hostess had witnessed the confrontation and were standing there laughing at us rather than trying to help or maybe call the police. This was not the level of service I expect from such a highly rated restaurant! We were celebrating my daughter's birthday and the night was not as special as it should have been.
Outstanding food. Unfortunately, service was very disappointing. Our server was distracted, disorganized (we ordered the tasting menu with wine pairings, and at one point he served us the wine for the following course, before the prior course had even been served), and in some ways unacceptable (he gave us our check immediately as the desert was served, without even asking us about coffee or after dinner drinks). While the food was great, this was a VERY expensive dinner, and the service strongly detracted from the experience. As such, I would not recommend this restaurant based on our recent experience.
This was my fourth time visiting Restaurant R'evolution. The service was amazing, as usual, but I left feeling underwhelmed by all of the dishes I tried. At this price point I expect outstanding flavor combinations, but I found the food to be just okay this time around. The gnocchi with lobster (my usual favorite) lacked depth and the lobster was extremely overcooked - normally I can finish the entire thing, but I barely ate half! There are so many other great options in the area at a much lower price point that I would've rather enjoyed especially since it was a special occasion. I truly hope that my next visit will prove me wrong.
While the food is delicious, the service was not the best. It started out quite lovely and attentive. However, an hour went by and we only got through the appetizer. This was even after expressing we had to be somewhere by a certain time for work. We asked one of the servers to wrap up our meals to go and bring the bill. Our main server came by 10 minutes later and seemed surprised and confused when I stated we had to go and still had not gotten our bill or our food. It was disheartening to spend that kind of money to eat out of takeout containers and plastic ware, without the ability to take in the ambience... among other disappointments. I still give it 3 stars because the food is truly delicious and the restaurant is beautiful. If only we had been able to enjoy it.
I have dined at this restaurant several times during business trips. This time I was fortunate to have my wife with me who has severe food allergies. The chef came out and talked with her and prepared a special meal just for her. She has never been treated so well. Five Stars!!!!!!!!!!!
Food is absolutely outstanding!! Its all about the flavor. We got the crab beignets which comes with four different dipping sauces and "death" by gumbo (quail, Andouille and oysters); then I got the roasted baby beet salad (with goat cheese and molasses-candied pecans) and my husband got the fried oyster salad (with bacon and blue cheese dressing); then for entrees, I got the citrus tuna (with roasted vegetable) and my husband got the seafood cioppino. We were too full for dessert, but next time I will start with that!! Every course was a treat; it was plated beautifully surpassed only by the smells, flavor and taste. We loved the experience so much that before we left we made reservations for the next time we are in town!!
This was one of the most exceptional dining experiences I've ever had. The service was attentive without being intrusive. I had the beet salad and crab Beignets for appetizers, and both were prepared and presented beautifully. For entree, my party sampled from the Sea Scallops, Lobster Gnocchi, and Beef Tagliatelle. The gnocchi stood out with subtle vanilla and lavender undertones. For dessert, we had the bread pudding along with complimentary truffles and cookies the chef was nice enough to send to us. Everything about the meal was memorable and look forward to dining with you again.
We will not go back. There are too many other better restaurants in New Orleans. It is overpriced and I was told by a local later that is probably the most expensive restaurant in the city. My $56 veal chop was ordinary at best. The items the waiter described as "best on the menu" to us were different from the items he pushed to the table next to us.
Got a last minute reservation for a group of coworkers looking for something special on our one free night during work convention. Everything was fabulous. The service was spot on, and the pace of everything was just right. The servers even took the time to go through each item that was gluten free on the menu for one person in our group. The food was superb, and the atmosphere was lovely. I would definitely recommend this to anyone going to New Orleans.
Wonderful! My adult son and I were on vacation in New Orleans intending to eat well. There are so many fine or famous restaurants to choose from so I studied the menus and ended up with this one as one of our dinners towards the end of vacation. Menu looked interesting. Almost canceled because we had been spending a lot but a local friend told me to go. Glad we went. Spacious, great service. My son says above and beyond and that includes the food. Food in New Orleans is often too salty or rich. Here, everything was appropriately seasoned and delicious. Even the salad was worth writing home over.
Amazing experience with top notch service. A highlight on our visit to New Orleans. We were lucky enough to tour the kitchen after dinner which was the perfect ending to an absolutely amazing meal. Would highly recommend. Also compared to other restaurants of this caliber in other cities, this restaurant was a great value.
Very simply put - AMAZING! From the beautiful, dimly-lit bar area to the various themed dining rooms the ambiance was great. It felt like we were dining at a friends' beautifully decorated, spacious, warm chateau. The whisky and cocktail selections were good providing a range of libations but not too overwhelming. The food options were enough to have a variety but not too much to make you indecisive. We enjoyed the crab beignets - a savory twist on the New Orleans classic served with four different sauces which were all amazing. For mains we ordered the chicken and andouille gumbo and the quail prepared three ways. We were pleased with the portion size, presentation, and flavor. For dessert we ordered the chocolate doberge cake - WONDERFUL! Our servers were wonderful anticipating our every need but did not hover and make us feel rushed. Overall this was a wonderful experience and we'll be sure to add Restaurant R'evolution to our "must do" list each time we visit NOLA.
Wonderful meal. I asked server if they could prepare a Bloody Bull but she said no, they didn't have the ingredients. Then as we were finishing up our meal, a man in a party of 6 next to us asked for a Bloody Bull and the same server said "let me check with bartender." Are men, or a party of 6, more important that a woman? The Bloody Mary was OK but a splash of bouillon would have helped cut the acidity of the tomato juice.
