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.

Top-notch service and excellent food in a beautiful atmosphere. The dry aged steak tartare was amazing! Our server made excellent recommendations and provided the best service we had all weekend in New Orleans. Definitely want to go back next time we’re in town.

We were in town for a night Saints game which gave us a chance to go to the square and have a early dinner. Traffic was horrible so our 3 hour drive turned into 4. We were going to be about 15 minutes late so I called and they were very accommodating. The food and service were wonderful and I would definitely eat there again.

I heard great things but was disappointed in our meals. I don’t think it was worth the price. I felt they overcharged for mediocre cuisine. Sorry

What an experience!! I am a New Orleans native and this was my first time to R'evolution. We were celebrating an anniversary and it was a very romantic setting, with beautiful food, a broad and impressive selection of wine, and knowledgable service! I will definitely be back.

Our meals exceeded expectations. Cocktails were wonderful, wine list was excellent, salads were perfect, entrees were delicious and desserts were sumptuous. Our servers were friendly, helpful and there when we needed them. The decor is elegant. Our only complaint-and its a small one-is that we were seated near big sliding doors that led to a hallway and courtyard door. People rarely closed the door behind them, so it was a bit drafty. After cocktails, it didnt really matter. It was a lovely evening.

Quite disappointing experience. Being a well-established restaurant does not automatically give it the right to do a sloppy job. Overall, the place seems dated. Dirty tables. The hostess showed some attitude when I asked her for another table.
The raw oysters were a disaster: pre-shucked who knows when, pulled out of the fridge and absolutely bland-tasting. The main course was ok. Nothing impressive though. Wait staff’s attitude lacked professionalism: too casual. “Craft” cocktails were just blah - absolutely not worth the price.

Thanksgiving and 34th Anniversary.
Had a reservation and sat bar bar for drink beforehand. Having a great time and cancelled dining room and had dinner at bar. Great service. All food was outstanding. Blue crab beignets were super and filling. Greens side dish spectacular. Will be returning next time In NOLA.

We went for family Thanksgiving dinner expecting a very high end experience. Our server was amazing and the food was very good. Other patrons were dressed way too casual which, unfortunately, gave the overall experience a very pedestrian feel. If I want a higher end experience I won’t go back here.

The food and service absolutely amazing. Blue crab beignets were to die for. We were seated by an area used for staging food and drinks, which is not a great location. Some menu items seems pricey but overall, what we expected to pay. Great suggestions from our servers. Definitely recommend!
