Creole / Cajun / Southern
Serving dinner nightly 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.

Thanksgiving and 34th Anniversary.
Had a reservation and sat bar bar for drink beforehand. Having a great time and cancelled dining room and had dinner at bar. Great service. All food was outstanding. Blue crab beignets were super and filling. Greens side dish spectacular. Will be returning next time In NOLA.

We went for family Thanksgiving dinner expecting a very high end experience. Our server was amazing and the food was very good. Other patrons were dressed way too casual which, unfortunately, gave the overall experience a very pedestrian feel. If I want a higher end experience I won’t go back here.

As always we had a wonderful night. We realized that our first dining experience there was the month it opened back in 2012. Delicious food and drink and amazing wait staff! We will keep coming back.

The food and service absolutely amazing. Blue crab beignets were to die for. We were seated by an area used for staging food and drinks, which is not a great location. Some menu items seems pricey but overall, what we expected to pay. Great suggestions from our servers. Definitely recommend!

Tina and Isaac ensured I had a memorable birthday dinner in New Orleans! Service was fantastic, but the food was just okay. I expected more with the rave reviews, and was disappointed with my entree. Definitely try the crab beignets, they were phenomenal.

We have eaten at Restarant Revolutions many times in the past and have always had great experiences. We bragged to our friends that we were going to one of the best restraints we had ever eaten at. We had a late reservation, 9:30. We were seated fifteen minutes late. We sat at the bar and ordered drinks that never came. We had to re order at the table because the bar attendant decided to “lose” our order when we were seated, even though we had been sitting in the bar waiting for our cocktails. Once at the table, we were rushed through our meal. The appetizer course was quite good (crab beignets and charcuterie), but it was cleared quickly and our mains were brought to the table cool instead of hot. They also appeared to be hastily prepared like the kitchen wanted to finish up and leave. Service was friendly but not up to the standards of what we have had previously. My redfish was served skin up with not crispy skin and the crab meat piled on top of the soggy skin up side. A disappointment, especially as the dish was cool. None of the mains at the table were hot or perfectly done as they should have been. Expectations dashed for what had been our favorite Restarant in NOLA. Still a beautiful setting, but not what it once was.

While cocktails were great, and I loved the playfully unique combinations attempted in the dishes, some were much less successful than others. Beef in the boudain made it a bit too rich and meaty, and the duck confit ravioli looked a little bland and goopy, and also tasted a little unseasoned. However the gumbo and frogs legs were excellent. Service seemed hospitable and attentive at first, but then became a little scattered at times, and the doberge dessert was pretty bad. The cake layers were too hard and firm, and flavors were muddled. For how pricey much of the menu is, I had higher expectations. It's also strange to see dogs inside of such a fancy joint.

Outstanding meal in the French Quarter. Have dined in NOLA for over 15 years and would include R’evolution a top destination for an elegant dinner. Just feet away from rowdy Bourbon St, once you get trough the entrance, you are taken into a wonderful dining experience
