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
I have been to many outstanding restaurants in the United States and around the world... R'evolution offers a beautiful atmosphere leaving no stone unturned... A wonderful staff with product knowledge capable of answering any and all questions... The food was some of the best I have ever had... I would travel to New Orleans again, as long as there would be a table at R'evolution available for me... Thank you R'evolution, to you and your staff...
WOW! We had an AMAZING dinner at Revolution. Our server Brian was 1st class, the food was divine and we even got a fabulous tour of the restaurant by Luis after dinner. The wine list is also quite impressive. AND...I would estimate 5 people came and wished us a Happy Anniversary.
Who does that anymore??? Really impressed with everything. My husband and I were visiting NOLA for our 20th Anniversary and couldn't have been happier with our choice to celebrate at this wonderful place.
Highly recommend it to anyone who is a diehard foodie & wine lover. My husband had the Crawfish bisque and the Redfish/crawfish terrine in an oyster stew, while I had the Tuna Tartare with the Grouper in a pea & mint cream sauce with chanterelle mushrooms & spring onions. So, so good! We also shared a delicious chocolate layer cake with salted carmel for dessert.
Food was very good. We split the Death by Gumbo. It was great. Shared the Cajun oyster salad which was good but not sure why they called it Cajun. Wasn't spicy at all. Fire roasted oysters were good but not as good as GWFINS. Dinner my husband had the rib eye. Be mindful of how they cook the temperature. Medium rare was very rare and too raw for my husband . However, it does explain how they cook it on the menu. He just missed it. He ordered it with the fois gras butter. Which they combined with the steak already had a red sauce on it. That was a bit strange. He also ordered the truffle mash potatoes which he did not like at all. It was just some shaved truffles in the mashed potatoes and really no truffle taste. Dessert box was just ok, nothing impressive. The crème brûlée bread pudding was very good with the soaked cherries. Cocktails were very expensive we did order special Vodka but paid half that at other places.
A very special restaurant. The décor is very upscale and beautiful. The service is impeccable. The food is among the best upscale cuisine you will find anywhere. It is very pricy, but not more so than some other upscale NO fine dining restaurants. We were tourists so were able to walk there. Driving there may be a bit of a challenge as it is located in the French Quarter.
Can't recommend this place. Service and food sub-par and twice as expensive as all of our other great meals in New Orleans. The back waiter could not have been ruder, the filet (?) was too tough to easily cut with a steak knife and was brought to the table covered in the Marchand du Vin sauce which was also served on the side. What were they hiding? Simply awful au gratin potatoes. The Brussels sprouts were passable. Got my partner's order completely wrong and had to do over. They did comp that entree. Wouldn't go back if it was all free!!!
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!
Initially my husband and I were seated at an uncomfortable table in a high traffic area. We asked to be reseated, and they politely obliged -- moving us to a lovely, quiet area near the kitchen. The ambiance was great. Our meals were fantastic, made even better by excellent service provided by our server Travis, as well as DeShawn and Kendal. We enjoyed the Crab Beignets and Crawfish Bisque to start, followed dinner: my husband had the Gnocchi with Lobster; unfortunately I can't remember my own entree (it was not a regular menu item), I can only recall it was amazing. We were too full for dessert, but did enjoy a few of the treats in the cute "treasure chest" provided to us at the end of our meal. It was a wonderful experience and we will absolutely return when we are in NOLA 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.
