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.

My mother and I ate before a concert last night and the food and service was great. We sampled many items - Turtle Soup, Beef Carpaccio, Small Gems salad, short rib boudin balls and shared a pasta and filet. Everything was deliciously prepared and coursed out in a nicely paced manner. I had visited this restaurant pre-Covid. Good to see it's still just as good. Highly recommend.

Quite good. What we ordered was on the heavy side. Any sides are a separate side dish to order. Extensive wine list. Ask for a tour. Very helpful wait staff.

The menu was amazing. Tons of choices. The foie gras appetizer was the star dish of the night, but the venison entree was a close second. The service was top notch. Travis and his team were awesome and made our overall experience wonderful. We had a short trip to New Orleans and only time for one great restaurant. We chose this one. It did not disappoint. If I was returning to New Orleans, I would probably just come back here.

Really fun dining experience. We had a wonderful server who just made the whole experience fun. The food was great, abundant. I would probably skip the blue crab beignets, even though they are an eye catching starter, just too filling. Lobster gnudi yummy, but again the gnudi is very filling. Awesome staff, would definitely recommend!

Everything about this experience was perfect. Food, service, everything. The waiter was very good at his job and everything came out at the perfect time. I am by no means wealthy but this was a great use of my money. I would definitely recommend this. Also, spend the extra $15 and get an appetizer.

One of the best spots for an incredible dining experience. Our second time there in several years and is still as good as we remembered. Exceptional food and great selection but can’t rave about the crab beignets enough. Cannot recommend any higher

Amazing. Our group of 6 dined here for New Years Eve and it was fantastic. From the greeting at the front door, hostesses, and servers....everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly. Our servers were knowledgeable and passionate about the food. They were helpful in choosing our drinks and entrees.
I can't stop gushing about how great everything was.

Our 56th anniversary. This was the priciest restaurant at which we ate in New Orleans. Fascinating menu. Sweet service. The table was right at the entrance which was a bit annoying.
