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.

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!

Fantastic service and beverages. We started with the hyped crab beignets and they were nice - in hindsight I wish I had asked for some those sauces to put on other items we ordered - delicious. I got a rib eye which at $50 shoulda been stellar but was drenched in wine sauce and was only about an inch thick. The sautéed mushrooms accompanying the steak were uneven with some plump and fresh and some flat and chewy. The Brussels sprouts were just ok and really tasted too much like super smoky bacon. Her redfish was good - though the chunk I tried was full of tiny bones - not always avoidable but still bad experience. This was our second time here. Probably our last.

Service is impeccable every time. Their Death by Gumbo is an amazing dish, with the darkest roux you can imagine without being burnt. I can't go without filling up on the foie gras, pate, rilletes, mousse selection. I always order more of these than planned, and never leave unsatisfied.

This was by far the best expetionrience we had in our three days in New Orleans. The food was excptional, service was very good, the place has a nice feel to it Much better overall than any of the ¨traditional, must go¨restaurants in the French Quarter. Pleasantly surprised. Pricey, but worth it.

Restaurant R'evolution is an absolute MUST if you are visiting New Orleans!

We had the pleasure of being waited on by Kevin, Daniel and Robert and received without exaggeration the best service we have ever had. They made thoughtful recommendations, were beyond attentive, and were a true joy to converse with throughout the evening.

The food was equally fantastic, compliments to Chef Carlton. The steaks were perfectly cooked, the gnocchi was lighter than air (you are able to order it as a side if you are conflicted like we were) and the chocolate dessert was decadent.

I would recommend Resturant R'evolution to any and everyone, it is such a special place to enjoy a wonderful meal. Can't wait to visit again soon!
