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
Disappointed. I've been trying to get a reservation during my visits home to see family since the restaurant opened. Finally was able to come for an early dinner with my mom on Mother's Day When we walked in the host told us he'd be with us in a bit because he had to finish a text he was typing in his cell phone. What?!!! Drinks were good. Service was extremely casual, not what you'd expect of this type of restaurant. Our app of the beignets was flavorful but gummy because they weren't completely cooked. My entree, the poached fish in a bagel was awful. The "name" was nothing more than puréed green peas, the thickness of baby food but of a grainy mouthfeel. The manager was quite gracious in offering a replacement. The crab cakes my sister and mom had were tasty but nothing over the top. The bread pudding tasted old but the pina colada cake was heavenly! I'm glad I finally was able to dine here but am not so sure I'll be back.
This was our second time to have Mother's Day brunch at Restaurant Revolution and it was outstanding from the moment we walked into the door. Actually from before we walked in thanks to the convenient valet service directly at the door. Then once we stepped into the bar we immediately had a mimosa made with freshly squeezed orange juice while we waited for our table. Once seated, the staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a relaxed lunch. We had fun reviewing the extensive wine list as I gave my son an impromptu wine lesson. Then the food....I'm speechless. We started with the black truffle tartare which was oh so decadent. We each tried a soup next - death by gumbo and crawfish bisque.....delicious. I had the shrimp and grits tagine and my son had the lobster risotto.....again delicious. For desert, we were too stuffed to eat anything but we were treated with a behind the scenes tour of the restaurant. Definitely a Mother's Day to remember. Absolutely perfect!
Absolutely beautiful inside! Perfect for our special occasion; however, there are literally ZERO vegetarian options. We had to piecemeal sides and a pasta dish (that wasn't no what we wanted, but still delicious) to enjoy our meal. Keep that in mind if you are vegetarian!
Stuffy atmosphere. Extremely, extremely loud. You almost had to yell to hear each other. The food was not great for the price. We read so many good reviews about the quail, but were very unimpressed. There are SO many other good, better priced restaurants nearby.
I had dinner at Restaurant R'evolution with 3 colleagues while in town on business. They were flexible and easily adjusted my reservation when I needed to change it. The server was outstanding - very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. I had a special request on my meal and the chef was able to make it happen. I would absolutely dine here again.
We arrived early for our reservation and the staff was wonderful. We enjoyed a couple of drinks at the bar while we waited. Drinks are made, well. If you love wine they have a wine list that is beyond extensive and impressive. For Dinner food was perfectly cooked brought out in a timely manner but not rushed. Food is absolutely amazing. The Gnocchi, Lobster was amazing and the steaks are cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend Revolution but make sure to make your reservation early.
Inventive, modern interpretations of classic cajun/creole cuisine served in an elegant atmosphere with (at least on our visit) a live jazz trio. The "Death by Gumbo" was one of the finest examples of the dish I have ever consumed. The "Quail and Waffle" riff on the classic chicken and waffles was plate-licking fare. Creme brulee bread pudding finished off the meal and left us thoroughly stuffed. The restaurant is beautiful and service was crisp without being stuffy. Highly recommended.
This is our fourth time eating at RR when visiting NOLA and the first time we were disappointed. The service staff was not up to the standard of a high end restaurant but the biggest disappointment was our entries were both excessively over salted. The waiter actually insulted my wife for not eating more of her steak and not asking for a doggy bag. Nevertheless, we'll definitely go back and consider this a one off.
I know you can't give six stars but R'evolution should be set apart from other restaurants. I couldn't afford to eat there all the time but it's worth the cost for a special meal.
The staff was enjoyable and everything from the wine, decor, food and dessert was perfect. It was an overall unforgettable experience. I hope to come back again.
The Triptych of Quail Southern-Fried, Boudin-Stuffed, Absinthe-Glazed was incredible as was my wife's Braised Boneless Short Ribs Rutabaga-Citrus Purée, Red Wine Sauce. The sauces, flavors and textures were a delicious adventure. The Gruyère Potato au Gratin side was really tasty.
The bill was more than other restaurants that we've eaten at in the French Quarter. For the two of us, it came to about $210 (after tipping). That was with a bottle of wine and a dessert. For a special occasion or an indulgent night out, I'd go here!
While having drinks at the bar as we awaited our table we struck up a conversation with a wine rep who had dined there several times. He told us if we got the filet mignon and it was not the best steak we ever had to e-mail him. We had the filet and I will not be contacting him. The steak was fabulous with a light topping of bleu cheese and the demi-glaze sauce on the side. It was melt in your mouth tender and delicious. I know NOLA has a number of fine steakhouses but whenever I am there again and wanting steak, R'evolution will be my destination.
Dined here for my wife's birthday . Great experience. I wore a shirt with no collar and had to catch a cab back to the hotel because they wouldn't let us be seated . Wish when making the reservation they would of been more clear with semi casual . After speaking with a local friend she mentioned the resturant loan out business jackets . Maybe the jackets were all loaned out ! I hope this was the case. But no worries we had a great time.
When we come to New Orleans
We try to come here for Death By Gumbo
This is to die for
The fire roasted oysters and the crawfish beignets are delicious too
The bar is really great
The restaurant is a bit stuffy
But worth the price
For 4 of us it was 380.00
We shared entrees
