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.

Total experience was fantastic! From reservation, occasional confirmation communication, reminder of Covid related information, to the actual meals themselves were excellent. We were 5 women in town for a weekend and thoroughly enjoyed this meal. We had two servers that were extremely attentive and personable. We had been told that the meals were good portions , so we did not order appetizers. But they gave us each a beautifully presented small tasty New Orleans cuisine item ( size was just a bite or 2). We all had different entrees and all were delicious. I had redfish and I loved it. We all had at least one cocktail. We did not order desserts. But again they served us some samples of their desserts. Just enough for a few bites each. All items looked like works of art in their presentation. The restaurant was very spacious, with modern decor. They had a pretty cool clear view refrigerator where you could see the meats that were being dry aged . The chef came over and explained what each item was. Very interesting. One of the best things was at the end , the prices were very very good! They also accommodated separate checks. I cannot think of a single thing that could have been better. Highly recommend!!

This was me and my wife's second time to have dinner here and we are never disappointed in any way with the place. We were eating here for my wife's birthday dinner at her request.
The service is excellent, our wait staff made us feel like we were the only ones being served, they never rushed us and helped us with our every need.
The food is out of this world good, we were each given a complimentary amuse-bouche, which was awesome, then we both decided to order two appetizers. We had Kobe Beef Carpaccio and Foie Gras and both were out of this world good. My entrée was the Sea Scallops and she had the Blue Crab Chitarra Pasta and neither of us were disappointed in our decision. We followed up with a bread pudding dessert and coffee.
This is one of our all time favorite resturants and that says a lot because we consider ourselves foodies..... WE WILL BE BACK!

We had an amazing time, food & service was excellent. Our server Travis was the best, the entire staff made our evening top notch as we celebrated my wife's birthday. Even the music playing in restaurant (provided by the hostess) was exceptional and added to the ambiance and overall atmosphere.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT, and will definitely return on our next visit to New Orleans!!!
