About Restaurant R'evolution
Serving Dinner daily, Sunday Jazz Brunch and Friday Lunch 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

Was hoping and expecting to like it more than we did. The food was good but not as good as many meals we've had at other popular upscale establishments nor as good as less pricy venues we've frequented lately. We went for lunch and took advantage of the special coolinary menu but had to ask for the special rather than it being offered. The fish and the steak were both ok but nothing we would go back for. the crab beneighs were fantastic tho overpriced as the drinks were also. Expect to pay $16/drink. The service was good and attentive but border lines on too attentive where we felt hovered over. Also the atmosphere was one of a more reserved restaurant that we didn't feel we could talk at normal tones. I'd say a great place to take ones mom or grandmother for a special occasion but not really for a date unless you simply want to impress on the amount your willing to spend.

Wonderful Dinner Experience in the French Quarter!
My Shrimp and Mascarpone Grits were phenomenal, as was my husband's Ribeye. The wine list is extensive, but we had trouble finding a bottle under $100. However, we told our server John what we were looking for, and he recommended the White Rock Cab which turned out to be fantastic. The pièce de résistance of the meal was the Maple Bread Pudding Crème Brûlée, which John described as, "...imagine if bread pudding and crème brûlée had a baby..." He was exactly right, and it was amazing! The food was great, but the service was second to none! We were even treated to a tour of the kitchen and wine room.

This was a last night together special treat for my boyfriend & me. I have a SEVERE nut allergy which was noted on the reservation and discussed with the server. So imagine my shock when the dessert was garnished with cashews, the nut that will kill me! The server said "oh I forgot to talk to the pastry chef". A sorry was not sufficient in my opinion.

Excellent food. Loved everything but the lobster in vanilla sauce. Way too sweet for a lobster dish. Excellent waiters. Very friendly and fun, but not overbearing. They made the meal even more enjoyable. Loved the surprise "jewel" box at the end of the meal. Our 19 year old daughter lit up when she saw this box. We would definitely recommend this restaurant. Loved the ambience of the bar and the room that had a view of the open area of the kitchen. Felt the first dining room that one entered off the bar seemed a bit stuffy. We were originally seated there but asked to move to the next dining room with the beams and open kitchen view. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

Service too quick. Food good, nothing special. We had to wait at the bar for a table in an empty restaurant. Then we had to pay at the bar - they would not put drink charges on food bill. Annoying as bar was busy & one member in our party had to wait at the bar until bartender settled payment - almost ten minutes.

Me and my partner, Brenden were celebrating our one year celebration. The staff that included Craig and Rory and another member were absolutely the finest and congratulated us on our marriage. The food was just incredible!! We will most definitely consider eating there again for future anniversaries!

My wife and I found the food very good. We really believe the food is a bit over priced, but that is likely because of the location. The service is excellent and the entire staff is first rate. There is really nothing negative we can say.

Have visited this restaurant before and was impressed. Wish I could say the same about my last visit, it has obviously turned into a tourist destination and the service reflects that, basically the attitude is..."we are glad you came but aren't looking forward to seeing you again". Particularly annoying was the captain who only showed up after we were finished with our meal and kept insisting that we order 3 scoops of the ice cream selection when we just want one scoop to end the dinner on a sweet note. And by the way, after the check is presented...you pay and you are on your own: no thank you or all the niceties that should be standard for a restaurant of that caliber. Disappointing, after paying $413 for 3 people, a certain behavior is expected and appropriate.
