Steeped in the diverse historic and cultural influences of Louisiana, the menu features not only contemporary interpretations of New Orleans classics such as gumbo, po’ boys, and beignets, but also new creations highlighting ingredients from the vast backyard pantry that is the wetlands of Louisiana. 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.

    Dashaun and Tina took such good care of us. Dashaun led us through the menu and helped us pick a unique and delicious wine. The food recommendations were spot on for our tastes and mood. The Death by Gumbo was really special, and I loved their unique spin on the shrimp and grits. Dashaun was super attentive and knowledgeable. And his energy and sense of humor made sure that we had an excellent time. We’ve eaten all over the French Quarter and this is one place we will be returning to again and again!

    we were there on the 15th of September. it started great the wait staff seemed knowledgeable. it went downhill from there, we ordered appetizers and a salat to share and asked not to rush it, well we got the appetizer and the salad almost at the same time. the dinner courses were timely, but my wife got the wrong meal. that made as wait for 10 minutes and by than my food was almost cold. the taste was good, but I hate cold food. we ordered desert and it was mediocre, my calvados was served extremely cold and way after my espresso. to top it all off we got the bill and we had both of my wife's meals on the bill. We had high hopes but were extremely disappointed. the extra meal was taken off the bill at the end. we ate at many high-end restaurants; this cannot be considered "high end". we will not be back, super disappointing.

    Okay but it feels like mass produced food and service. Staff was friendly. While use of team approach for service did keep the water glasses filled, it made for plenty of noise as wait staff would communicate with each other while walking by your table. I didn’t feel much ambiance in hearing this table needed that, that table is ready for entrees. Crab beignets are hulky, nothing delicate there. You can order just 2. Never say this but more than a tablespoon of sauce was needed to add flavor to those big hushpuppies. Cast iron foie gras was good, smoked ham didn’t add much, a couple of more cherries would. Try a glass of dessert wine paired with foie gras. Scallop with corn and chanterelles was good. 3 large scallops, not over cooked. Wine by glass selection is good. Wine list is large but it seems several whites are not kept chilled, thus not available. Table nearby had slow service as kitchen got busy. When the guests declined dessert, the server offered comp dessert, nice but had to wonder why that wasn’t mentioned to the guests before they declined dessert. The place didn’t feel special. So given the $300 price, not a place we would tell others to seek out.

    We wanted a top restaurant to go to for our last night in NOLA. With August closed for renovations, we chose Restaurant R'evolution. It was a great decision. The restaurant is modern, classy and beautiful inside. The waite staff were very informative and attentive. The food was sublime. We had the seafood gumbo for an appetizer and the oysters, both were delicious. The presentation of the gumbo was unique and a nice touch. We had the redfish, beef filet, and two pasta dishes (braised beef tagliatelle and wild boar bolognese). The fish, braised beef and filet were amazingly good. For dessert we had s'mores ice cream, a plate of different chocolate mousses and passion fruit sorbet. The desserts were really really good. It's an expensive restaurant, but it was worth it and we were well taken care of.
