Creole / Cajun / Southern
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.

It was definitely not cool enough in the restaurant. The staff said that the hotel the restaurant is next to has control over the air and the hotel keeps telling them they cannot make it any cooler. The fish options were a bit overpriced. I got the swordfish, my husband got the redfish; we ended up switching because the swordfish dish was not great and it was my birthday and my husband wanted me to enjoy my meal (the redfish dish was great). The drinks were good and the staff was pleasant in spite of the temperature. I would not go back to this restaurant.

New Orleans is home to culinary giants - family-owned establishments that have been running for generations. Restaurant R’evolution is a new type of culinary giant offering a refreshing spin on old favorites and generally blowing the competition out of the water. Like Arnaud’s and other NOLA classics, the ambiance and service at R’evolution are exceptional. No detail is overlooked as a team of three cater to your every need and accompany you through your journey. We were blessed to have a wonderful, entertaining evening with Tina, Nicholas, and Travis. (Ask Travis to display R’evolution’s incredible drink decanters, and you’ll be in for an added treat.)

Each plate was exquisite. The dishes are comprised of high-quality, hard-to-find ingredients that convey the proprietors’ need for excellence. Each course is plated with such care, and an artistic touch so beautiful, you almost don't want to destroy the perfection. The colors, flavors and textures combine to please the senses at every turn.

Our four-course leisurely meal lasted two and a half hours, during which we were consistently wowed throughout the evening. We travel often and fine dine at many establishments, and my partner and I both ranked this meal in our top three experiences. (Rated on par with establishments in Paris, the Sichuan Province of China, and Rio de Janeiro.) R’evolution offers the complete dining experience at a price we felt was more than reasonable given its incredible nature, and R’evolution has earned a spot on our restaurant rotation list when we return to NOLA.

We're NO natives, and this was our 1st visit to R'evolution on our 1st anniversary. Over the course of my past career in restaurants, which spans 20+ years, I've dined in some great places. This is one of them. The ambience, impeccable service, & fantastic food/drink selection and execution, are exactly what you're paying for. Peter and Kevin were wonderful hosts in this Creole mansion of the French Quarter. Highly recommend.

I had what, in all honesty, may have been the best dinner of my life.

The service. The atmosphere. The drinks.

And the food, where after one bite, my wife and I ooked at each other and just... closed our eyes and smiled. We couldn't wait for the next course. Every flavor was a combination of new, familiar, and amazing.

It was a transcendent restaurant experience. I could die happy tonight, knowing that I had this food.

To Restaurant R'evolution and New Orleans, THANK YOU!

We had a group of 5, celebrating a birthday. We were visiting from Florida. From the moment we sat down, the service was impeccable! Our servers were beyond personable and accommodating. Beyond amazing, I can’t think of a word to describe our food…from the appetizers to the main course. I will definitely visit again for dinner!!

Very happy with the restaurant with one minor exception. The young lady at the front desk was not very personable and seemed to just barely tolerate our presence. We were definitely not made to feel welcomed.
The rest of the staff was very, very nice and accommodating. The food was excellent and presentation was on point.

We heard about RR from a local while waiting in line for another restaurant. This is her fave and - now ours, too. She was so right! Death by Gumbo did not disappoint. My partner had charbroiled oysters - to die for - apparently. I had the steak tartare and that was very good. Son had the triple quail dish and loved it. Basically you can’t go wrong and service was exemplary
