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
Always great experience. Large wine list but mixed drinks are good as well. Service one of the best in NOLA. Food innovating in presentation and tasty. Although it is located in FQ it is far from being a tourist trap comparing to some other restaurants in the area.
It was a fantastic experience. Service was incredible, on top of each part and yet not intrusive. Food was innovative and yet comfortable. Everything was right on point. Staff explained each and provided terrific guidance. Very engaging service staff. I had the triple quail and it was rich and tasty allowing the quail to be the star with the seasoning and sauce to enhance the flavor. My wife had the seafood gumbo which was rich and well seasoned but not too much. Now the show stopper was the crab Beignets. They were melt in your mouth with excellent flavor and servced with a dab of varied sauces to explode in your mouth. The best. Finally we got to the creole bread pudding and again it was a perfect blend of innovation and tradition to be just right.
This restaurant is a perfect spot for any celebration. It is on the pricey side but well worth it. The service is impeccable and so friendly. We had the mouthwatering tomahawk steak with seared fois gras and the asparagus dish was delicious too. It was our 33rd wedding anniversary and it was memorable!
Not very accommodating for a vegan. A lot of fine dining restaurants will have the chef create something for someone that doesn't eat meat or dairy. Not so much here. Was told I could have a dish they offered on the menu and they would leave out the dairy. Received a bowl of Farro and squash, covered in melted butter. Not what I expected for this type of restaurant and for $26.
We spent our 26th wedding anniversary at R'evolution. It was great. We had the stair stepped Caviar, bone in filet, redfish and a wine from Argentina. It was great. We had a wonderful evening with Kevin and his support group. We even got a tour of the wine cellar and the back room that is used for private parties. Thanks for a super evening.
R'evolution was a revelation. The meal was superb! Excellent service: good humored and expert. The tasting menu is a great value and featured local ingredients creatively prepared, as well as some surprises. Amazing seafood, deep sauces, perfect portions. Super wine list including some American rarities. Will definitely return the next time we're in NOLA.
My friend and I went to brunch at R'evolution and ordered the COOLinary offering. The restaurant lost electricity after our first course, so we spent the remainder of our time there sitting in the dark, with an automated alarm sounding off, and the restaurant getting warm rather quickly (to be expected for New Orleans in August). The kitchen closed so we didn't receive the final course that came with our menu selection (which was the whole reason we ordered the COOLinary menu in the first place). We were one of two tables in the restaurant at the time, and the manager approached the other table (a party of 8, tourists) and comped that group's entire bill. My friend and I didn't so much as get our cocktails comped or receive a discount for the dessert we didn't receive. It was really disappointing considering we had the same dining experience as that other group. We in no way expected a free meal, but an apology, a kind gesture, or a situation handled with more finesse, would have been welcomed and appreciated, especially when we saw it extended to the only other table in the room. For such an expensive restaurant, this was hardly the fine dining experience we expected.
We went for their Sunday morning jazz brunch and everything was perfect. The cocktails are amazing and the food is even better. Our servers were friendly and informative about the food and made excellent recommendations. We will be back next time we come to New Orleans.
This was one of the best dining experiences I'd ever had! Chef Corey cooked every dish to perfection. The portions are appropriate; filling but not overwhelming. I came to New Orleans for one night and it was specifically to go to this restaurant. I was not disappointed! It was worth the trip and the rain! Thank you!
Sullen black waiter nearly mute about the interesting menu, and did notice other wait staff far more outgoing and informative. Swordfish had a distinct smell, despite the sauce(s), so if you like fresh fish, don't order that. Eye of ribeye, quite pricey, was covered with a sweet sauce which was not mentioned as I declined the other menu listed toppings preferring my meat without; and medium rare is indeed 'charred' on the outside though of acceptable redness inside.
Restaurant R'evolution is upscale and the food is very good--good. I think it is pricey and probably overpriced for New Orleans in general. The wine, for eg, some of which is not so great, starts at $16 a glass and a bottle is at the minimum $45 and all the ones that taste good are $65 or more. There are very wow menu items like $10,000 wine and caviar that costs a mint.
There are a lot of waiters, like at Commander's Palace, and the service is careful, but the food is not wildly better than places that cost less and have more low-key service., which is really all you need. That said, I had fantastic quail gumbo and the appetizers, such as the beignets with various sauces were great. If you want to pay more for three waiters and a wine steward, this is your place.
This will one day be a New Orleans iconic restaurant! The food is amazing and the service is impeccable. The ambience is wonderful for anything to date night, and special occasions to a less formal gathering place for family and friends. I have been here no less than 10 times and it is consistently a winner!
Other than accessing the French Quarter during construction, it was a wonderful evening. Do yourself a favor and don't try and drive down there. Revolution is an experience. The staff went out of their way to accommodate us and kudos to the chef for creating my off the menu seared Foie Gras with peaches and blueberries on the fly. A very nice combination. Everyone in my group was very pleased with what they had. Personally, I would have preferred a larger Burgundy selection but what we had was great! Will be looking forward to returning.
Everything was delicious! The waitstaff was amazing and very helpful! We went celebrating my birthday and they helped us pick out a delicious bottle of Rose. We ordered some oysters- so yummy! I got a stuffed fish and my husband got the rabbit, I will have to say I actually enjoyed his more!! Great place to go- I would definitely go back!!
Everything was delicious. The Wife had risotto made with farro and a delicious creamy sauce. I had a 9 oz. filet mignon crusted with bleu cheese. We split the potatoes au gratin with gruyere. Divine. I tried two different cocktails that were yummy and we were served an amuse bouche, prior to our meals. Service was excellent and attentive without seeming hovering.
Will definitely revisit.
A very good restaurant for any occasion.
A very knowledgeable and attentive staff caters to every diners wants and needs.
Great meal choices to tickle even the most discriminating palate.
Drink selections bountiful with signature cocktails available from the bar.
Valet parking available for a nominal fee.
Our experience at Restaurant Revolution surpassed dining at a top restaurant in NOLA where we had dined the previous night. Our service was seamless. Food was nothing less than heavenly ....perfection. However, If I could change anything, I would prefer tablecloths, subtle and romantic table lighting and a blossom. Still, I would not hesitate to return. Lovely evening.
Revolution is a shell of its former self. The ambience and the service were perfect. The food was lack luster at best. Gumbo was not warm, many shells in the crabcakes. Very disappointing. I hope this restaurant gets back on track. It was one of my favorite places to dine in the Quarter.
This is not just grabbing a meal. This place is an experience. New Orleans is a foodies heaven and this place is definitely one of its Shepherds! Although it was not perfect, we experienced a few kitchen fails. We had to send back one of our dishes for food being over cooked and A dessert order malfunction. All of this was remedied quickly and perfectly! The staff and service was amazing! I would recommend this to any of my highly critical friends... most of them are chefs! Lol
I went to Restuarant R'volution for my birthday. The food was great. We had a grilled oyster appetizer to split between 2 people. We each had an appetizer salad with fried oysters as our entree. We also had some delicious ice creams and sorbets. Overall, it was a very nice experience. Since it was on the expensive side(for me), I would probably go again for a special occasion.
Amazing from start to finish! We were seated promptly. Crab beignets with 5 different sauces was incredible! I had the red fish and my husband the braised short ribs. Both were excellent. Dessert was good. The addition of the beautiful box of candies at the end was a wonderful ending to an exceptional meal! Wait staff was friendly and quick. We enjoyed every minute here.
Everyone was wonderful to us except the bartender that ignored us when we stopped at the bar for a pre dinner drink. No reason either in my opinion. Over five minutes without so much as a "hello" or "be with you in a minute". But we were totally satisfied with all servers during our delightful dinner. The rabbit and the steak tartare was fantastic.
