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.

Our waiter was outstanding, very informative. We tried caviar for the first time and the presentation was beautiful. Our entrees were so delicious. And the dessert jewel box was a nice surprise. I can’t say enough good things about the entire experience.

Let me count the ways, first off the Focaccia bread they bring out is absolutely delicious, the waiter said they put mushrooms in it but anyhow it was delicious. I got the quail and my sweetheart got the duck and both were equally outstanding dishes. One of the best dining experiences as far as the food goes in quite a while. Service was good but not great and it can get a little loud but hey it was a busy Saturday night in the quarter. All in all I’d highly recommend this place and will most definitely be back.

My group of foodies LOVED Restaurant Revolution. It was our favorite of all the places we hit over our 4 day weekend. One member of our group is coming back down in 2 weeks and will be bringing her group there. Everything was outstanding.

I think many restaurants get high ratings because of people who are having a first experience with fine dining at a big name restaurant. R'evolution had all the right pieces, but failed to bring the A game to the two most important; food and service.
The server kept coming around asking if we were ready to order. After about the 4th time, we ordered. After the food arrived, he only stopped by once.
The Red Fish was overcooked and dry, (3 of us had it). The Creme Brulee Bread Pudding was some odd ball rendition. It was a very dense, thick slice of unflavored wet bread with a 1/4" of creme brulee spread on top. It was dry, chewy and pretty much tasteless.
Service was no better. The server was in-attentive, seldom passing by. He left the bus boys to handle any requests. And the bus boys were no better. One took away my bread plate with all the bread and dashed off before I could stop him. When I next caught him, he said he would replace my bread. Again, after a few minutes I asked for bread. Oh, yes, sorry, he said and went away for the evening. Never got my bread.
Two much better venues are GW Fins, (very attentive, great food) or Red Fish.

Rory, our server was fantastic. He had two assistants and the team was run like a quarterback or point guard. They never missed a thing. The staff was very knowledgeable about the dishes and made great recommendations. The entire experience was well worth it. I have visited many restaurants in New Orleans as well as other cities and this was our best overall experience since bacchanalia in Atlanta.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Scallops and Beef Ribs were great. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. Desert was fantastic too.

Fantastic food in a beautiful space with live New Orleans jazz trio on the Sunday we attended.
The vibe was laid back but the meal was cutting edge. Brilliant and lip smacking new takes on old Louisiana creole classics. Was hard to decide what to try and everything we had was wonderful. We will absolutely return on any trip to NOLA.

This was our 4th time eating here. In my humble opinion, this is the BEST restaurant in New Orleans. If you come to NOLA, you simply must eat here. We started with the oysters R'evolution. It is like having 6 jewels put before you. Each oyster better than the one before. Then we had the jamon Iberico. I know, this is a big indulgence, but it was my birthday, and so we indulged. The ham is buttery, and silky and coupled with the grain mustard, makes your eyes roll into the back of your head. Our entrees were, the filet mignon and Triptych of Quail. The filet was perfectly cooked and extremely tender. A little quirk, my wife ordered it with horseradish crust and she got the blue cheese crust. Since she likes both, we did not send it back. Just a little hiccup. I had the quail. if you like quail, and I do, this is for you. The southern fried quail is just lights out. The boudin stuffed is outstanding, and the absinthe glazed is great. We did not have dessert, because afterall, Cafe du Monde is calling. You are probably wondering about service. This is at the top of the charts. I am sure that there are restaurants with equally outstanding service, but there are none better. My recommendation, go check all of this out for yourself. P.S.-Next time we eat here, we are definitely getting the 40oz tomahawk. The servers carry it through the dining room, and you want to steal one off the plate.

This was my first visit to this restaurant. I will be back for more visits. The restaurant is lovely and has a great ambiance. The service is fantastic. The only thing that kept me from giving the food five stars was the bread and an hors d'oeuvre the chef sent to our table in a tasting spoon, gratis. The bread was rather tough and tasteless. The appetizer was overly salty.

I ordered the crab beignets for an appetizer; four crab beignets, each served with a different remoulade. They were excellent. For my main course I had the sheep ricotta gnocchi with lobster. The gnocchi were light and tender, melting in my mouth. The accompanying sauce and lobster went beautifully with the gnocchi. While one member of our party opted to order dessert, I did not, but I was in for a treat. Our server brought out a "treasure box" in which each drawer held a sweet; including cookies and small, artisanal chocolate truffles.

It's always with some degree of trepidation that one visits a new restaurant. I was very pleased with this one and hope to dine there again on my next visit!

The cocktail menu can be frightening with drinks costing as much as $650. But the food was very good and appropriately priced for the value. Lots to choose from including the beer-battered crab beignets, which were served with four different sauces. The shrimp & tasso risotto was excellent. The complimentary cocktails and desserts were a nice touch.
