Creole / Cajun / Southern
Serving dinner nightly and Sunday Jazz Brunch 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. Located inside the iconic Royal Sonesta New Orleans hotel in the heart of the French Quarter, Restaurant R’evolution’s menu reflects a melding of the chefs’ distinct culinary styles. Steeped in the diverse historic and cultural influences of Louisiana, the menu features not only the chefs’ 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.” Tableside service components play an important role in the dining experience, promoting guest engagement about the history and evolution of the food they are enjoying.

Absolutely impeccable service. A foodie gem. The tasting menu is second to none. The scallop and foie gras was unbelievable, as was the smoked squash gazpacho. Absolutely recommend to anyone looking for great inventive food just off Bourbon Street.

Amazing! Had the restaurant week specials - 4 courses for about $50, plus a little extra for the crab beignets. What they don't tell you is that you also get these add on goodies like an amuse bouche, 3 kinds of bread with 3 kinds of butter/oil, or a jewelry box full of little cookies and desserts even though I had just eaten a whole creme brulee bread pudding dessert. The fish turine was soooo good, never had anything like it and I always order seafood at restaurants!

The staff was so polite and attentive. I really enjoyed my dinner and will come back if I'm ever in New Orleans again.

This was our first visit, and we'll most definitely be back. We had reservations and arrived 10 minutes early, but were seated immediately. Service from our group of 3 servers was great. They were all attentive, personable, yet did not disturb or interrupt our evening out. Presentation for all dishes was beautiful! And all of this would be for naught if the food didn't taste good. We weren't disappointed, and are looking forward to visiting again and trying new dishes. The filet mignon was off the charts yummy, and the turtle soup, too. If we were reviewing a movie we'd go with the two thumbs up!

It was our first experience with R'evolution and very pleasant. We had the Jazz Brunch, the servers were very attentive and pleasant and well informed. The menu was creative and the dishes delicious and the jazz combo made for a great Sunday brunch. We look forward to returning.

The foood was delicious. I was confused about the 7 course meal. I asked one of the servers if that was for 2 people and he said yes. But they charged us for 2 separate things but other then that it was GREAT.

The entire experience was fabulous. The food was amazing. The waitstaff were all incredible, attentive and friendly. I can't think of enough words to truly say how enjoyable the entire evening was. We started with a drink at the bar, then had a fabulous meal from appetizers to dessert followed by the cutest box that had sweet treats in it. It felt like getting a present at the end of the meal. We left only to return an hour later to have a glass of port at the bar . . . . this will be a regular stop on our visits to New Orleans. Thanks!

One of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans. I love just eating at the bar when i am alone or with a friend, you always meet cool people eating at the bar. This time me and my wife was seated at a table at the service is 100% professional. One of the their chefs Rebecca even visited our table to talk to us. Bartender was spot on with his pour! We had seafood gumbo & raw oysters to get started. Then had a ribeye steak and followed by desert. I go to NOLA often and this is a must go to restaurant.

I've been meaning to go to this place since I first saw the menu back in 2016. It did not disappoint, in fact it far surpassed our expectations. We actually skipped entrees because we got so caught up in appetizers, a wonderful salumi board, and the Death by Gumbo and turtle soup. This is NOLA fine dining the way I remember it from when I was a kid.

I am on vacation and a friend who has dined here before recommended this restaurant with the caveat that I should only go if I was prepared for a higher cost meal. I opted to go all in and selected the tasting menu with the wine pairing. It was pricey but worth every penny. The staff were amazing but attentive. They didn’t make me feel weird for being a solo diner and allowed me to fully enjoy every bite and sip. The atmosphere and decor are charmingly New Orleans . I highly recommend this spot.

I had a fabulous experience at Restaurant R'evolution! The Death by Gumbo and the Triptych of Quail were delicious. The very popular crab beignets were the only dish that was just OK in my opinion, but I'm not too disappointed because all of the quail dishes were outstanding.

What made dinner extra special was our main server, Kevin. I've eaten at many fine dining restaurants, and the service Kevin provided was within the top 2 of the best service I've ever received at any restaurant. He was friendly and gave my friend and I some great recommendations for local places to visit. He picked my wine and paired it very well with the food.

Death by Gumbo - mistake. A whole stuffed quail has no business in a bowl of soup. No other ingredients appeared in this gumbo.

Swordfish- skimpy piece of fish that had to be less than an 1 inch thick served with charred, inedible vegetables.

The real embarrassment for the restaurant was its presentation of Iberico ham for $40. Plate was a collection of 20 tiny scraps of meat that looked like they had been scraped off the bone of the ham. Kitchen had no idea what it was doing with the meat and had no business putting it in front of a customer. Pathetic. When we shared our disappointment with the server, response was, “What do you want me to do about it?”

There are so many other amazing dining experiences in this city so do yourself a favor and go elsewhere.

Had another wonderful dinner at Restaurant R’evolution. We went right when they opened and ended up getting a tour of the whole kitchen, back wine cellars and chefs office! Food and cocktails were perfectly made as always. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and mixed with the fantastic service really gives it great ambiance. We did the Coolinary menu this time which did not disappoint. The boudin stuffed shrimp and gazpacho were my favorites. My husband still stands by his statement saying they have the best gumbo in town!

The service was great. We were a little worried about dress attire. But when we got there there people in jeans wearing sneakers. It was casual as a pose to jacket preferred. The food was great but I was it expecting it to be exceptional. Overall we had a great night. If we had to do it again I would look somewhere else.

Attractive decor. Pleasant server but he didn’t place the order for our appetizer so our oyster dinner salads arrived before our appetizer. Server apologized and said that they were on him. Crab Beignets with four different sauces were great. Long wait for bill. Salads were $15 on menu but were $18 on bill and the begneits were on the bill. Server apologized and said that he would be right back . Told us that price if salad went up effective the day that we were there. We suggested that they print the new menu if they were going to charge a higher price. We tipped him well even though our experience was not excellent. Disappointed because we have always heard great reviews. John Folse needs to know about the charges not reflecting the new prices.
