Located inside The Royal Sonesta New Orleans hotel in the heart of the French Quarter, Restaurant R’evolution’s menu reflects a melding of our region’s distinct culinary styles. Steeped in the diverse historic and cultural influences of Louisiana, the menu features not only contemporary interpretations of New Orleans classics such as gumbo, po’ boys, and beignets, but also new creations highlighting ingredients from the vast backyard pantry that is the wetlands of Louisiana. 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.

    Everything about our experience was exceptional. The service was fantastic and the food blew us away. Crab beignets are stuffed with crab meat and boudin balls were beyond compare. My only complaint, if you can call it that, is that we were so full from our appetizers and entrees that we had no room for dessert! Portions are sometimes small at higher end places but that was not the case at Restaurant R’evolution. We will be back soon and highly recommend everyone give this place a try.

    We went based on excellent reviews, but it ended up being our least favorite meal of our trip. The service was Very disjointed. Our waitress didn’t do much of anything and was very fake in how she spoke to us. A man who was our waiter (but dressed in a biz suit) was very high energy and fun. Then others brought food. There was no flow to the meal. Odd for such a high end place. All of the starters were AMAZING. The preparation and taste were truly special. We had charbroiled oysters (so great we ordered 2), steak tartar and fois gras that was ridiculously great. The entrees were not as successful. Seafood was very fresh and delicious but the boulliabase (spelling?) was presented in a way that caused it to not be very hot and it was very bland. My friends thought their entrees were good but not great. Not sure I would recommend this place. So many other great choices in New Orleans.

    Thanksgiving and in New Orleans for 5 days to celebrate 35th anniversary. Had an outstanding experience a year ago on Thanksgiving at Restaurant R’evolution. This year maybe expectations were too high. Cocktails excellent. Appetizers delicious (Steak tartare and crab beignets) We both ordered the special Turkey entree since it was Thanksgiving as we had it the previous year and loved it. Not so much this year. One plate came out generally fine (portion of mashed potatoes was minuscule on both plates)the other was missing the stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce, along with a very small portion of turkey! When we were a bit incredulous at the one plate and looked for someone with whom to address it the hostess noticed (we ate at the bar) and immediately took back to kitchen. When the food was returned there was stuffing gravy and more turkey but still no cranberry sauce. There wasn’t much heat in the dishes either (whereas my extra side of greens was delicious and hot) so I wonder how long this was prepared ahead and sat and how many people saw these dishes come out ( one twice) and didn’t notice the big disparity between the two? We looked at pictures of ostensibly the same dish from last year and the difference was obvious. Didn’t hang around for dessert or after dinner cocktails after the let down. We will hold the memories from a year ago. Otherwise too many outstanding options in New Orleans to return to Restaurant R’evolution.

    For an upscale New Orleans restaurant, it was pathetic. My wife and I went there for Thanksgiving 2022 to enjoy what we thought was going to be a great experience. It was very lackluster. We ordered raw oysters. The oysters were so small, you would need 4 of them to equal a regular LA oyster. When we complained, they brought us out 3 bigger oysters. They should have never served the ones we got. My wife ordered the seafood bouillabaisse. The amount of broth that was served was so incredibly small. There was hardly enough to cover the bottom of the bowl. I had ordered the redfish. The fish was cooked well, but the amount of vegetables that came with the meal could only fill a quarter cup. Needless to say, we left there hungry. For the amount of money that we spent, is was not worth it. Just know, you will leave there hungry.

    We made reservations for Thanksgiving and I thought if I did later it would be less busy and we could relax. The crab beignets were fabulous. The scallops were perfect. I ordered the more traditional meal with ham, mashed potatoes and sides. They were all very good. Food out is really nice but it is your servers who make the meal. Ours did not. Alex and his partner, a large pleasant enough man did not feel paying attention to our drinks were important. I guess because we did not order alcohol, our service was not as important. We sat so long after our meal we just didn’t even feel like dessert any more. I had even pushed my plate away. I understand many things but when I pay what I paid at Restaurant Revolution, I expect better service. Would not recommend wasting money plus parking. Too many other options.

    Nice wine list. Starters were top notch. It ends there. Our service on Thanksgiving was inattentive at best. The Delmonico steak cut was very thin. The lobster bouillabaise featured cabbage radishes and potatoes 3 logistinos and ...2 fried oysters...what???..served in luke warm broth...thanks to the server. Had to ask for a hotter serving. 450 bucks! Very proud of themselves.

    Loved the oysters and turtle soup. However a little heavy handed on sherry in the soup. Husband’s quail, dressing, and country gravy was not hot. Didn’t enjoy the espresso after dinner. However the service was excellent. Tina is an excellent at what she does. She actually made our dining experience pleasant.

    Highly recommended to us and we were excited to dine there. Cocktails were good. Oysters on half shell were quite small but tasty. 3 of 4 entrees were cold, undoubtedly poorly timed in the kitchen for the 4th entree, a steak which was good. Scallop dish was replaced and the freshly cooked one was good. Shrimp and grits had an ashy off flavor not appealing to any of the four of us. With tip, more than $400 for a disappointing dinner. Skipped dessert so can’t comment on those. With so many fabulous choices in NOLA, not likely to return.

    Not up to the same standard as past visits. Bartender was rude and seemed annoyed to have to make drinks. Wait staff was very nice but never asked for dinner drinks order. Food was delicious but servings have definitely been reduced post covid. Just a little underwhelmed after having talked it up so highly to our dinner companions that had not been yet. Will try again but if it is another experience like we just had we will be looking for our new go-to place in NOLA.

    Overall, we enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent! The food was good, but not spectacular. It felt a little too overpriced for what we got. The dining room was too brightly lit, and so there was not a lot of ambience. The tables could have used some candles, and the lights could have been lowered. For this amount of money, I was hoping for a more romantic feel.

    Caviar service not worth it at all. They are out of staircases lol for the price not worth it. Food otherwise was amazing very solid meal overall. Service was a miss to start forgot the dirty in our martini, We order $150 of caviar 10 min later they ask you want entrees? when everyone around us was getting the menu explained and walked through. First impressions but glad we stuck around the food was solid and they gave me a free birthday desert so did all the right things to recover. Overall I would recommend.
