Exceptional ExperienceWe had a wonderful dining experience at R'evolution! The food was delicious, the staff was attentive but not intrusive and everything, down to the interior design, was beautiful. We will be back quickly!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in years!I dine out all over the country and this was by far the best overall experience I've had in years. Superb job John Folse and Rick Tramonto!!!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, but not a value.Food, service, and atmosphere were excellent. This restaurant is very clearly aimed at the very rich and business people with liberal expense account policies. We live in New Orleans and have access to tens of restaurants that are equally excellent, but much better value.
Expanding the lower price end of the wine list could help the value issue.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRevolutionWe started with the Gumbo in which we split. The bowl was plated with half a quail stuffed with rice, an oyster and andouille sausage and then our server poured the gumbo broth on top. Gumbo was delicious, not over powering in any way. Quail was tender and easily cut with a soup spoon. We then moved on to Sizzling Oysters Revolution and Crab Meat Beignets. The oysters didn't have as much flavor as I was hoping for but were still good. The beignets were to die for, just melt in your mouth amazing. For the main course we ordered the filet and veal chop. The veal chop was so large in size and so tender. Steak was a little over cooked but still full of flavor. Dessert - white chocolate bread pudding creme brulee, AMAZING!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, not my favorite in NOLAWe went for Our anniversary.The decor is elegant &wait staff polished.Two main waiters in Our section and some ancillary.When We were first seated main waiters introduced themselves &spent time explaining bar list and wine list.Menu was not explained. Asked about specials &were told menu was extensive it would be confusing tous to have more choices. Ordered food, did not see main waiter until long after We finished; only ancillary was there. The ancillary waiter was unpolished & spoke too familiar with me while my husband was away from table.Appetizers &Pork chop superb. Paneed veal was good, heavy breading, more deep fried. Was brought lovely happy anniversary plate of ice cream filledpastry.Very Nice touch.
Will return for another chance.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for a KingA wonderful experience... A total experience... Every one of the five senses was indulged!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in New OrleansThis new comer has taken over the number one retaurant in New Orleans spot for me. As someone who travels weekly to New Orleans, I eat in many of the fine establishments in the city. This was my second visit to R'evolution and once again the food, service and ambience were exceptional. My guests all agreed it was the best meal they have ever had in New Orleans. Quite a feat!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA foodie experienceThe food, the presentation, and the waitstaff were exceptional. I tasted all 3 soups, and the gumbo with the dark roux won. The turtle soup was very good, too. The shrimp and grits was very different, and the best I have had. All of the entrees were good. There were 7 in our party, and we ate all 7 desserts. The beignets and the Banana Foster Souffle were fabulous.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAn elegant and luxurious oasisAn elegant and luxurious oasis in the middle of French Quarter insanity, this restaurant invites you to relax and enjoy many delights. It is very, very expensive, but definitely worth the price. Definitely try the scallops with foie gras. Divine! The wine list is impressive, with perhaps too many super expensive offerings. But, the connoisseurs will be delighted.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHuge menu and pricesCorkage fee $50 - outrageous - wines equally expensive, cocktails $15, food expensive but no more so than many top end NOLA restaurants BUT quality spotty - huge menu, perhaps they should concentrate on smaller number and do them well.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience!Wonderful dining experience! Enjoyed meal thoroughly from beginning to end! We were treated with such special care.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMservice was very slow...tookservice was very slow...took 20 min to get our drinks & even take our food order...once that was done though, everything was great5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful wonderful wonderfulI love oysters on the 1/2 shell and the oysters I had were the best ever! They were meaty, sweet, briny, perfectly presented. I will be back for more today for lunch. The rest of the meal was excellent as well. And the service was excellent. Our main service seemed a bit off putting, but that may have been us. I have never seen such a wine list. I loved the way it was presented on a computer tablet, the choices were amazing both in variety and, quite frankly, in price. But we found an excellent wine within a reasonable price and I loved seeing what they had. Wish I could have tried one of those multi thousand dollar bottles. This restaurant is overall pricey, and worth every penny!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply stunningI am a wine business professional and get lucky to be entertain at some terrific restaurants. I absolutely believe this to be one of the best experiences I have had. We had professional, easy, correct and informative service from our waiter Zachary. The drinks from the bar were delicious. The wine list is huge, but extremely well thought out and laded with ready to drink stunning wines to choose from. The food was top notch with one of the best single dishes my wife has ever had. I can't say enough. Bravo!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHands-Down Best Meal!I can't say enough about this restaurant! Our table was in a gorgeous dining room in view of the service line. The service could not have been more attentive. The appetizers were shows toppers- get the sizzling oysters. Everyone's meal was gorgeous and delicious. My friend's pork chop was the best I've ever tasted. Beignets melted, and the madeleines to close the meal were light and clean. Treat yourself to this experience!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic flavors with modern touchThe menu at R'evolution is full of traditional New Orleans flavors presented in new, less heavy, very creative ways. The triptych of quail was gorgeous and delicious as was the scallops with fois gras dish. Service was impeccable. We will return next time we visit New Orleans.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was absolutely phenomenal!The food was absolutely phenomenal! The service was even better!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely the bestEverything about our dining experience at Restaurant Revolution was a pleasure. The meal was superb. The wait staff was attentive, not overbearing, friendly, fun and knowledgeable. Crab beignet were light and great alone, but came with four sauces for a little added dipping zing. Trypich of Quail was fantastic - each offering tasting perfectly balanced unto itself. My partner and I shared two desserts, one chocolate and one fruit. I am not the chocolate lover of the two of us, but it was melt in your mouth pure chocolate heaven. I can't wait to go there again and would recommend it to anyone! Just a note, we spent three and a half hours at dinner and there is a dress code.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!Several of my friends highly recommended Restaurant Revolution & it did not disappoint! We were only able to work in lunch this trip but will definitely be back for dinner. Go, you will be so glad you did! It's truly an outstanding restaurant in every category.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular FindWas highly recommended to us by a friend and did not disappoint! Food was excellent and service was superb.

I give it an A+ all around!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFine diningThere is a true difference between eating good food in a nice place and fine dining. This restaurant offers the later.

They knew it and seated us in a quiet corner booth and after dinner brought me a plate with a few cream puffs and Happy Birthday written with chocolate and a candle...very nicely done! We ordered plates that others had recommended and were not disappointed(the Quail 3 ways was spectacular). The service, by Eric, was right on point, as well as his whole team. We have eaten in top restaurants in NYC, Las Vegas and other places and this restaurant is in the absolute top for food, presentation and service, and was surprisingly, less expensive then what I expected.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible.

Just excellent!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner. The crabWonderful dinner. The crab beignets are alone worth a visit. The simple green salad was amazing - after a week of overindulging I was craving something simple and pseudo-healthy. The salad is so good that I actually crave it now. My husband enjoyed the turtle soup and raved about the quail three-ways. My shrimp and grits were also good. The banana fosters souffle made me not miss the traditional dessert with ice cream at all.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDress code optional.Interesting that they 'prefer' men to be in jackets yet allow other diners to wear shorts. Please make up your mind and stick to it! My guests felt uncomfortably overdressed. Service was very good.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad brunch before departingHad brunch before departing New Orleans.

Crab beignets were fantastic, as was Death by Gumbo. Not sure if it was an off day for the service staff, but they were really disorganized and inefficient.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals we'veOne of the best meals we've eaten. Deserves a visit and stars from Michelin!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMneed more domestic beer especiallyneed more domestic beer especially light beer there is definetly enough back bar cooler space for it.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Special Occasion RestaurantUnbelievable food, service, and experience... but extremely expensive. If you would like to try several items throughout the menu and want a bottle of Nappa Cab or Oregon Pinot get ready to open the wallet. The food was great and the experience was second to none. This could easily be the top restaurant in NOLA right now (which is extreme, but easy to understand once you've been). Loved the experience, now it's time to find someone else to pay.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI will be back as soon as I amIt is right on Bourbon street, but you wouldn't know. It is a beautiful space. And the tables are spaced apart, whioh is unusual to me coming from New York where the tables are 2 inches apart. They had a few original quirky details that added a touch of "hipness". Service was great, funny without being overbearing. The food was better than very good; not quite blowing my doors off. We ate the night before at a landmark restaurant in NOLA and this place was steps above. I would recommend it to anyone.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of 8, so weWe were a group of 8, so we were seated in a lovely semi-private room towards the back. Excellent meal experience overall. Service was friendly & attentive, but not overbearing. The food was well-seasoned & the menu pleasantly varied. One steak came out a bit over-done, but the problem was quickly rectified by the kitchen. We loved the box of "treats" that came out with the check.
Also really appreciated that we never felt rushed, even though it was an early-ish reservation and they may have needed to turn the table.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
