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.

Three nights in New Orleans and we chose R for one of them. Totally perfect! Friendly, knowledgeable server who let us relax and enjoy the perfectly prepared red fish and quail dinners. The crab beignets and fois gras parfait are decadently delicious. Many thanks to the kitchen krew who worked their magic.

Good atmosphere, good service, good drinks, good presentation and good portion of food. But the food was too salty to eat. We ordered 2 appetizers and 2 entrees, they were all extremely extremely salty, inedible.

I took my aunt, uncle, and cousin here last night. I had been to RR 5 years prior with my wife and really enjoyed the experience and this repeat visit did not disappoint. Half our party was vegetarian and our waiter Rory was amazing and accommodating. We ended up ordering what felt like half the menu and had a great night.

Underwhelming. Pretentious, see-and-be-seen restaurant with French Quarter pricing for relatively standard offerings. Requested a quiet table, and was seated in one of the noisiest parts of the restaurant; nearly impossible to hold a conversation. Staff was attentive at first, but then almost nonexistent and they were clearly stretched thin - example: inconsistent wait times between courses; our table was often hurriedly interrupted by wait staff mid-sentence, to drop food and the run on to their next table; nearly 15 minutes passed after the check was dropped for payment to be picked up; we had to retrieve jackets ourselves because they were left unattended behind the host desk, with no one around to assist. In general, the food was somewhat unremarkable, and the dishes that were notable were unfortunately so due to several execution issues - the kitchen did attempt to correct these when pointed out however, so they may just need to find their stride again after the long closure. In the end, it was an overpriced, lackluster experience that just left our party feeling like we were burdens on the restaurant, rather than guests. Kudos for the extensive wine list however!

We had a fabulous dinner. Delicious cocktails and appetizers! The staff was fantastic! I had the scallops with foie gras and my husband had the 45 day aged steak which was “market price”. Both dinners were amazing, but we were a bit surprised when we get the bill and his steak cost $250…it was nearly 2 pounds but had quite a bit of chunky fat…not marbled, not wagyu…lesson learned…ask for price when menu states market price. No regrets, we will definitely go back next time we are in Nola.

It was extremely disappointing in a restaurant of that caliber that there is no dress code to speak of and that three fourths of the crowd were looking more poorly attired than what I would assume they would even wear to work! And the noise level was quite good until they seated next to us a table that they squished in nine people that was really designed to seat six at the most. And they weren’t seated until 930 so they were drunk when they sat down. We skipped dessert and left early because it was so irritating

From start to finish, we had a wonderful dining experience. Nick was outstanding and made excellent suggestions. We started with the blue crab beignets. Delicious! My husband ordered the Wagyu beef & lobster and absolutely loved it. I ordered the scallops and foie gras and a half order of the gnocchi with lobster and loved every bite. For dessert we ordered the bread pudding and chocolate gateau. Both were so good. We definitely look forward to dining here again when returning to New Orleans.

The Romaine Salad was spectacular. Don't let the anchovy dressing scare you. It was faint! The Redfish was served in a sauce with caviar. Delicious. For sides we did the dirty rice, mushrooms and grits--all were well received!

It was such a glorious dinner, just as good as before the pandemic shut down. We were delighted to see many familiar faces in the both the dining room staff and the kitchen! Chef Folse commented on my husband's wild jacket (I would dearly love a chance to cook with Chef Folse)! We started with oysters and caviar with cocktails - just divine. This was followed by the fish preparation and the rack of lamb, expertly seasoned and cooked to perfection and we added the waygu poach potatoes-just amazing! We had the R'Evolution 2017 Pinot Noir which was a delight! Keep up the great work, we will be back and we will be bringing friends!

Absolutely amazing! Great selection of wine, delicious dinner (and our waiters provided custom options, like the deviled quails eggs a la carte for us to try), fantastic service. There are hundreds of great restaurants in New Orleans, and great ones in this area, however I think Restaurant R'evolution is overlooked and shouldn't be. Would definitely come back for a special occasion!

The food food was terrific. I ordered crawfish guitar string pasta and my husband ordered seared scallops with foie gras. Kevin was our server. He even gave us a tour of the beautiful kitchen and introduced us to the chef. It was a perfect anniversary dinner.
