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.

Our server Ismael as well as the Manager provided me and my husband with the best service possible- the best I’ve seen in New Orleans so far! I’m glad we decided to give this restaurant a try because it had some pretty amazing appetizers and drinks. The homemade ice cream at the end was delectable as well.

This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. They put us at a table that made us feel so special and it wasn’t even requested, the service was impeccable, the food was the best food I’ve ever had. 10/10 would recommend and will be back!

Our experience was amazing. Over the course of our stay we ate at the Nola staples: Brennan’s, Antoines, muriels, mother’s etc. let me say, this was the best meal and service of our trip. Our captain waiter, Mr. Daniel took his time to give us a proper tour of the drink menu as well as our meal menu. I chose to order off menu, the 10oz 50-day dry aged New York strip wrapped on wagu fat, ordered rare One of the best steaks I’ve had anywhere. For a drink I chose the old fashion which I will say, was the best old fashioned I’ve had out of any of the top bars in Nola, NYC, and Chicago. Between Daniel and his assistant Isaac we wanted for nothing but received everything. A perfect dining experience to end our trip

This place is definitely worthy visit, request Daniel for your captain server. Can’t go wrong!

Celebrated here on Sunday, and it was a wonderful experience. The caviar tower was incredible. Staff was welcoming to us bringing in two bottles of wine and decanted them for us (NB there is a corkage fee), and we had a delicious steak. The sides were great too. The staff then brought out a small surprise dessert unprompted to thank us for coming. Will come back!

I love NOLA food! Think I rate too many restaurants with 5 stars, it doesn't leave me room to rate the true standouts higher as they have earned. You won't find a finer place. They treated my date and I like royalty. (She deserves it ;))

Restaurant r'evolutiom serves my wife's favorite dish in all of New Orleans: lobster and ricotta gnocchi. She had that. Tonight I had scallops. This place never fails to impress both the present and the memories.

We have dined here many times and have always loved it. Tonight not so much. Order did not come out as requested.

Bread was cardboard

Roasted oysters just ok

Oyster salad mediocre

Green salad way to vinegary

Seafood gumbo not very tasty

Red fish really good

Servers were more involved with another table of regulars

On top of all of this we were charged for 125 dollars of salmon we did not order. Fortunately we notify and it was taken off the bill

Very disappointed

The food was excellent. My friend doesn't eat much meat, and she certainly doesn't eat quail, but I got her to try a bite of my triptych of quail and she said it was really good. Beautiful dining room. Service was a bit slow but I'm finding that true of most restaurants in New Orleans.

An experience truly worth all five stars! From as soon as we sat down until we removed our napkins and finished our meal, the service was impeccable. The waitstaff’s knowledge of the menu was impressive and their recommendations were on point. We enjoyed everything we ate! From the special amuse bouche to the perfectly prepared quail and lobster dishes. Even the desserts were amazing and wonderfully crafted.

This was our first visit to Revolution since it reopened. It’s one of our favorite restaurants in the French Quarter and we were not disappointed. They were almost back to their Pre Covid excellence so that’s a big credit to all the staff.
Wine list is still extensive and the food was very good. Menu was just a bit limited but that’s to be expected. Glad to see they are back and their high standards have not changed. Looking forward to our next visit

We went for Christmas lunch, just two of us. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was creative and excellent. I had the foie gras starter and scallop entree. My husband had death by gumbo and osso bucco. We shared a wonderful chocolate dessert.
The service was spot on, friendly but not too homey. Wine recommendation was very good.
Ambience was wonderful. We had the perfect corner booth.
It is one of the most expensive restaurants in the city but we felt it was worth it. Looking forward to going back.

We had the BEST experience ever!!! I cannot say enough about the food and the atmosphere. Must stop for anyone visiting! My daughters (7 and 15) enjoyed various appetizers (carpaccio, oysters, Brussels sprouts), then we shared the duck and lamb and bone marrow accompaniment.

There was one team member that MADE OUR NIGHT AND EXPERIENCE.....his name is Isaac and I want management to know that he is an asset to your team and the most lovely person I had the experience of meeting on our trip. He helped with my daughter and made her feel extra special and made my dinner that much more enjoyable! Isaac, thank you for your kind spirit and helpfulness, you are amazing!!

There was one thing that annoyed me, we paid $38 for the carpaccio, fantastic...however we were asked if we wanted truffle oil on it. I said SURE! When I got the bill there was a $40 add on for that item. While I had no qualms with paying for that, as the establishment is expensive...I feel as though Daniel S, our server should have said how much the extra cost would have been. I feel like he was pushing it to raise his bill. I still tipped well over 30% because the rest of the team was top notch and they deserve it!

Either way didn’t ruin my dinner, I just wanted management to know! Can’t wait to come back!! -Joanna

Foot was absolutely outstanding. Unfortunately, the service or ambience did not match the food quality. Service attending and clearing tables were an after thought. Also being seated in the courtyard room just beyond the pocket doors leading to the bar did not provide for a relaxing experience. I would go back for the food but would expect to be seated elsewhere and service needs to improve.
