Serving dinner nightly Restaurant R’evolution offers modern, imaginative reinterpretations of classic Cajun and Creole cuisine. 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.

    Menu selections are excellent with something wonderful for every taste. It’s a Cajun restaurant, a steakhouse, and a seafood restaurant. Ambiance, service, and food were all great. Wine list is extensive with some reasonably priced options as well.

    I am not sure which was better… the meal or the service. Both were outstanding. The signature Death by Gumbo was outstanding. John Folse at his best, with the rice stuffed inside a deboned quail with the roux base poured around the outside. Awesome short ribs and lobster main; a combination so good it needs to be tried to understand how good it really is. Awesome job Revolution team!

    Restaurant service from Travis was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and very genuine. Food was outstanding. However, I cannot recommend the bar. The woman provided poor service and was more interested in patrons she knew an way too friendly. Very unprofessional. We were one of three couples at bar and there was another bartender present. Can’t wait to dine with you again. Bill A.

    This easily could have been a 3 star or less review but it was totally turned around by an excellent general manager who went out of her way to make sure we left happy! First I’ll just say the food is amazing - everything from the bread through the entrees to the ice cream. When we raised an issue with our server it was immediately course corrected and what could have been a negative experience became the highlight of our trip! Our bartender was also excellent.

    First time here. We will go back. Really liked the atmosphere and the service was excellent. The food was a bit spotty. Lamb and turtle soup we’re excellent while the quail triptych was OK and the roasted oysters were really bad, too much butter, and they were luke warm (to their credit they took them off the bill). What we liked the most was that it’s a nice change from the traditional French Quarter experience from both the perspective of the menu and the ambiance.

    Excellent service and food was very good. We were seated in an odd spot that was like the hallway between the bar and the restaurant, even though we had a reservation. It was breezy and cold and really detracted from what should have been a great dining experience. Moreover they don’t have tablecloths on many of these tables so you feel even more out of place. Espresso was served in a regular coffee cup—poor form. Front of the house needs to think this through.

    Excellent food. Service was top level. Just wondering why they put nice white table cloths on some but not all tables? With food and prices like this the customer deserves a table cloth. The roasted oysters were delicious but watch out for the rock salt garnish. Extensive and impressive wine list. Over all enjoyable.

    Saved By The Food - we started, as all too often happens, with the Hostess trying to shunt us to the table by the door in the back room. But when asked she moved us to a more comfortable table. We were then pounced by an over-enthusiastic pair of waiters who assured us were weren’t “eating good in the neighborhood.” Forget the dress code, the gentleman in the next couple seated kept his knit cap on and the hoodies and ball cap gang soon arrived. The music was relentlessly bad unless you enjoy dining to uptown funk. The experience was saved by the food and wine, all of which was very good. The filet was cooked just right and the seared scallops pair well with the risotto. Go for the food, ignore the mood.

    Service was good and ambiance was nice. However, we found the food to be quite underwhelming, especially for the price point and level of dining. We hope the hiccups we experienced were a fluke for the restaurant.

    I couldn’t say enough good things about this restaurant if I tried! We went for our anniversary and they did everything they could to make it such a special evening. We were so well taken care of and every detail of the meal was perfect. And don’t even get me started about the food! It was absolutely delicious, flavorful, and cooked perfectly. I recommend this restaurant to anyone, but especially if you’re celebrating a special occasion!

    I am a New Orleanian living in another state and I carefully plan my dining experiences when I come to town. I came to R'evolution hoping for an experience akin to NOLA's top notch dining experiences, the likes of Commander's, Antoine's, Galatoire's, August... you get the picture. The food was overall good but not great. There are too many restaurants in NOLA where you take one bite and you are in gastronomic ecstasy. This was not one of them. My biggest gripe was with our wait team. They were slackers. They were nice guys, but lacked in both attention to detail and engagement. Again, the greats provide impeccable service. These guys knew what they were supposed to do and one even commented that he had to get an empty plate off the table because his manager was coming. They just chose not to provide the level of service one would expect from a fine restaurant unless their manager was in the vicinity. I will say that the wait team at the section next to ours was amazing. They were engaged, professional and knowledgeable. We jealously listened to them engage with their customers and learned a lot. While overall, our experience wasn't bad, I believe R'evolution needs to step up its game to compete with the many fine dining experiences offered in NOLA.

    I had not been to R'evolution or the French Quarter since Covid. I am so pleased that R'evolution is still a remarkable restaurant and experience. We had a great time. The food and service were exceptional as had been in the past. This is a very classy place. The bar up front is elegant and the dinning area is beautiful.

    Okay, because there are no 1/2 stars I will somewhat grudgingly give the 5 star overall review for our first time here. The GREAT, specialty cocktail menu, entrees (short rib, venison were super good), ambiance, service team was just outstanding. The POOR, Death by Gumbo was bland bland. My wife considerers herself somewhat of an expert having lived in New Orleans for many years and she is usually willing to give a "it's good" comment versus a negative comment but this was a negative comment (it was taken off of the bill) thank you ... The WTH (won's use the normal abbreviation), I brought a bottle of very expensive cabernet knowing I would be paying corkage for it. The head waiter took the bottle from the table and opened it out of my sight at some kind of a beverage table (my wife was able to view that) and tasted my wine and brought it back decanted. Now I have dined at many many fine dining restaurants including some Michelin starred restaurants (New York, California) and either ordered wine or brought my own in states that allow this, and have NEVER had that happen. Not one comment about that process. Needless to say, I was shocked but decided just to move on since my wife saw what happened. I would dock the score but everything else was really great. Hope that I get a response from mgmt so i can have a live conversation.
