    As always, the level of the food at Restaurant R'Evolution was exceeded only by the level of service we received from the staff. This was our 3rd visit, and it confirmed our decision to make this our restaurant home in New Orleans. We will be back as soon as we can!

    Rory and Travis were wonderful. Cocktails were exquisite along with the food. Thankfully they made our night. Rory explained everything to us with gusto as we were new to the cuisine We nearly turned around as the hostess that showed us to our table was surly and rude!!!! A shame for an establishment like that. Would certainly recommend and go back. Re train the hostess!!!!

    Always my favorite place to eat in New Orleans. That staff really makes it even though the food is always spectacular. I told Kevin our server about an item I had enjoyed in the past that was no longer on the menu. He not only surprised me by having it made, but also gave it to me at no charge! If you haven’t been, go. You will not be disappointed.

    Food was terrific. Service was excellent. Little things could make the place truly elegant: dim/change the lighting, white tableclothes! Our table looked like something out of a diner. It was beat up and unattractive. Just cover it with a white tablecloth and then you have, well, a white tablecloth restaurant!

    AC was broken and we were seated 45 minutes after our reservation because the patrons at our table had eaten, paid and were not leaving. Managers, Bar and wait staff were very nice and apologetic but the heat and food were a huge disappointment, would not go back unfortunately.

    We went to R’evolution for a birthday dinner. Our waiter never really paid attention to us and his service assistant basically did all the work. Shout out to Isaac! The atmosphere was a little hostile (man sitting behind us flicked us off as we sat down). We were really excited after reading all the reviews! But it was a let down. We ordered the Wagyu Tagliatelle and there was barely any Wagyu in our pasta. Additionally it was cold when it came out. Cocktails and drink were good which was the only good part.

    I cannot possibly say enough good things about Restaurant R’evolution. We were seeking an accessible fine dining experience for me and my teenage kids, but one of my children is autistic and has difficulty in some loud places, or with unpredictable changes. The staff was incredibly discreet about accommodating my in-app request for a suitable table. We were very close to the kitchen, which might be undesirable for some, but was ideal for us, because the staff kept eyes on us at all times and we had considerably less diner chatter than one would expect from a large and bustling establishment. And my children had no idea that a disability accommodation was taking place. We had chosen most of our meal in advance, a part of our strategy for accommodating the autistic member of our party, and the staff was wonderful about giving as much or as little explanation as we wanted. Traditional attentive service can be stuffy and server-led. Restaurant Revolution gave my kids the experience of traditional New Orleans-level service, but made space for our needs as well. One dish wasn’t quite what a child expected, and the staff suggested a quick alteration to another dish that might make in more sensory-friendly, and produced said dish with incredible speed. It was perfect. It can be difficult to enjoy a quality restaurant when one’s family experiences neurodiversity, but this place came through. Of course, the food was sublime. I’ve gathered and eaten morel mushrooms before; I’d never experienced the perfection of taste and texture that I experienced from venison loin with spaetzle and wild mushrooms. It nearly made me cry, it was so good. Every dish was exceptional, and I am so grateful to the staff for enabling us to experience it in a way that accommodated my family’s needs without detracting at all from the experience. Also, rather surprisingly affordable, for what it is.

    We were here to celebrate an anniversary. It was briefly acknowledged and then Never mentioned again. Our service was beyond outstanding! Impeccable. The appetizers were insanely phenomenal (crab beignets and pork belly) the bread and cane whipped butter… oh my word, so good! The main course was a tiny disappointment (I ordered the Red fish and my hubs the shrimp/grits. Maybe it was an off night, but the flavors just weren’t there. Both dishes were a bit bland. For dessert we went simple and so glad we did- (vanilla bean ice cream and sour Cherry sorbet) it was just the right amount of sweet and finished off the night perfectly. We walked back to our hotel and you will need to as well, lol!

    Honestly the food is not tasty at all. I am not sure who wrote the rest of 7000 5 start reviews here, but listen - take your money elsewhere. I am no restaurant critic, but I have been around the block and dined at some nice places, this one is a complete waste of money. My pasta was made from frozen dough, I could just tell and the drink gave me hives because it was made with some super bottom shelf alcohol most likely.

    I love everything about this place. We dined here for Restaurant Week and had a three course pre fixe for $50–an outstanding value considering R’evolution’s prices (which I think are justified given the calibre of the food). I’ve eaten here three times before and each time it’s fabulous. Wonderful wait staff, creative dishes, great drinks. It’s definitely a splurge/special occasion venue but well worth it in my opinion.

    WOW! Just WOW! What an amazing experience. Everything from the time we sat to dessert was one of the best dining experience I ever had. We were waited on by the dynamic duo of Tina and Deshaun. I’m telling you now ..Ask for their section. They are not just knowledgeable and friendly but they put on a show that makes you smile and feel like your in their own homes and that your their warmly welcomed guest. The food was superb, can fully recommend the crab benigts appetizer soooooo good. My steak was cooked perfectly and the redfish was amazing. Do not walk … run to this place as soon as you can. Your tummy will thank you.

    After much fanfare and recommendation, I went to Restaurant R’evolution and was sadly underwhelmed. What was surprising was the basic things a fine dining experience should do without question. Biggest issue: staff. The bar staff was unprofessional, complaining about working on a slow night, the impact to their wages/tips and SITTING on a box behind the bar playing solitaire on their iPad. It was very uncomfortable as a patron. Also- the staff left the area halfway through my meal without a word so I had to flag down someone else to clear dishes and provide the check. Second issue: food. Although the beignets were good and served with crabmeat and tasty remoulades, they were nowhere near worth $20 for a portion. Ridiculous. And the Delmonico steak was tough and served with not enough of the chimichurri it was served with. Don’t even try the asparagus unless you get it without the attempt at Hollandaise it is served with. Drenched in this cold sauce that was oily and didn’t taste of traditional lemon and butter. I was really disappointed in this meal and hope a review like this results in improvements.

    Deserts and drinks are the way to go! Desert menus was delish and so many options as far as drinks go. Perfect date spot. Food portions were way too small. I came to eat, got disappointed with the size of their dishes, finished my braised wagyu pasta in three bites. Death by gumbo… overhyped. It’s soup and you struggle to eat the bird in the soup. Had to eat at killer po boys after because I was still hungry. 6/10, would definitely take a date for drinks and deserts, but not to eat
