About Restaurant R'evolution
New Orleans, LA 70130
Serving Dinner daily, Sunday Jazz Brunch and Friday Lunch (Wed.-Fri. in December) 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

Outstanding food, wine, service and ambiance. This is one of the very best kitchens in the French Quarter along with being at the top of all "must dine" at lists in NOLA. The place is architecturally stunning and begins with a pre-dinner cocktail in the bar which stocks a vast collection of anything containing ETOH. All-in-all, a fabulous experience resulting in a longing to return once again very soon.

Really one of the best brunches we've ever had, but have to say that it's definitely not a bargain in any way! I'm one to spend on food, so no stranger to a large check, but this was pricey for brunch even by my standards. Was really delicious, though - just come prepared to pay!

Restaurant R'Volution's name suggests they are attempting to set a culinary breakthrough for menu, preparation, and staff in a town that prides itself on innovative, exceptional food. Instead, like many real revolutions, the restaurant was haphazard and almost chaotically ill-prepared on the night my husband and I dined there. The menu which touts itself as inventive creole tips much more to standard new American. My husband had the veal chop which was overbreaded and bland. I had the duck which was horribly overcooked and grisly. In both cases, the ingredients in the dishes were put on the plate with little regard for how they actually come together. Instead, the motto seems to be--we will throw a lot of culinary darts at the board and see if any stick. On the night my husband and I visited, we were ignored by multiple members of the wait staff team as though there was no one managing the floor and this was a week night when the restaurant was not exceptionally busy. All of this makes us wonder why the restaurant typically gets such good reviews.

I enjoyed the overall dining experience, the staff was very attentive, well trained.
I am not from the area so i found the food very interesting, i just thought some dishes were a little salty, however i cook with very little salt, so please take that into consideration.
The wine list was on the pricey side, but the selection was very large.
Very nice place.

My wife and I recently spent the weekend in NOLA and had brunch at one of our favourites. We arrived early and were promptly seated in the dining room by the open kitchen. Very cool design with the arches, subway tiles, and view of the chefs working.
I started off with a bowl of seafood gumbo. Light roux, great presentation, and tasty. My wife had the Crab Beignets. WOW! outstanding!! My wife went were her Scottish roots and had the Boudin Scotch Egg. Outstanding as well! I have never had duck bacon before, but it is duck AND bacon. Most excellent! I opted for the crab cakes. They were small but all crab, no bread crumb filler here. Tasty and filling. Service was prompt, friendly, but not overbearing. The waitstaff are very professional and we were properly served by all. We know Chef John Folse personally and know his attention to detail.
Restaurant Revolution is the NEW, old New Orleans. It ranks up there with the classic New Orleans restaurants like Galatoire's, Arnauld's, or Commander's. It always meets and exceeds our expectations. An awesome meal and experience!!

This was an amazing experience. The service was amazing and I've never felt so appreciated as a customer. The food took our taste buds on an adventure. We loved it all down to the last bite. I've been to New Orleans a countless amount of times but this was my first time dining at this restaurant. I will definitely go for another experience! HIGHLY recommended.

This place was excellent! I t has different types of dining rooms which adds to the totality of the experience options. The food was great and we had to add no seasoning. The appetizers were great and generous. It was an outstanding experience and our wives went on a tour of the kitchen which they loved.

This place is outstanding! The crab beignets are excellent! Drinks are amazing! Service is great! I had the black drum fish and it was perfect. I came here for my anniversary. I spend the weekend in New Orleans ate at several restaurant and this place was the best restaurant! Restaurant R'evolution will remain an outstanding food memory for me and my husband!

The Death by Gumbo was amazing with a stuffed quail breast with a roux broth poured over it. The linguini and clams from the lunch menu was delicious. We went at Brunch but would have liked to try a few things off the actual lunch menu and they were not available. But over all the place was one of my favorites while visiting New Orleans. The Jazz brunch was fun and I loved the quaint rooms.

Michael was absolutely fantastic. We had NYE dinner here and it was nothing short of amazing. The menu was totally different than I expected because I had not seen a NYE special menu and usually that would have stressed me out or ruined dinner but he made fantastic suggestions and it was a spectacular meal.

Special NYE dinner; everything was outstanding from being seated early, to the unique adult beverages, and the very tasty and generously portioned entrees. Most special was the delicious and surprising (not on posted menu) Chocolate Buche de Noel dessert. This was truly a once in generation meal. Five stars in all categories.

I've been to 5 star restaurants and 3 star taverns. Never have I felt like such a hick. This place is snooty and hoity toity. Couldn't decide what accent everyone spoke but had to have the waiter repeat himself multiple times.
Bring bags of money because this place is VERY PRICY. The waiter suggested a cocktail for me that cost $70! Tiny side dishes were way overpriced. We had 1 drink each, and appetizer, entree and dessert and the bill was over $250.
Yes, the fillet mignon was delicious. The home made dessert was yummy. And the Chinese box of 6 truffles was nice. But the atmosphere made us uncomfortable.
I cannot recommend this restaurant.

2 words: Marscapone Grits. I know it's just a side dish, but here's my counter argument to that: if someone can put that much love and deliciousness in a side dish, imagine how good everything else is! Superb meal from start to finish, very attentive service, great wine list, and lovely decor.
It's a big, open restaurant, so it might be a little loud for those looking for an intimate, romantic setting, but you can definitely still make conversation with those around you. Pros to the "openness": It's great for people watching, and seeing the masters work in their open kitchen!
