Serving Dinner daily, Sunday Jazz Brunch and Lunch on Fridays 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. Steeped in the diverse historic and cultural influences of Louisiana, the menu features not only the chef’s 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.” Table-side service components play an important role in the dining experience, promoting guest engagement about the history and evolution of the food they are enjoying. Soups such as Creole Louisiana Snapping Turtle Soup and Death by Gumbo play on unusual presentations of these traditional dishes that date back centuries. Desserts showcase classical New Orleans sweets done in a new and contemporary way.

We were in NOLA for family birthdays. I chose to celebrate my husband's birthday here, for just t he two of us.. the wait staff is wonderful. So knowledgeable about the drinks, the wine, the food. Everything we had was beyond expectation. I cannot say enough about the menu choices..The wine list is on an iPad...so extensive. I would love to go back when in town again. Do not try to rush thru the experience.

The experience here is showy and self-absorbed. Foie gras, truffles, and caviar are littered all over the menu. The wine list is an iPad and the dessert menu is battery-powered and glows in the dark. They make a big show of three waiters to every table, yet the service was often inattentive and overly theatrical. There were some good dishes -- Death by Gumbo, Red Fish Orleans -- but in town known for stellar food, the offerings here don't stand up to competition. Not really recommended if other options exist, even for an expense account.

One of the best dining experiences I’ve had. My fiancé and I had such an amazing dinner- the wine, the food and the service! Our waiter, Kevin was so knowledgeable and personable. He truly made it a great dining experience overall. This place is a must! This is coming from an NYC and Philadelphia- foodie girl!
The beef tartare was unbelievable!

Hands down my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. It’s a must stop every time I travel to the city. I recommend it to everyone.

You must try the Death By Gumbo. It’s the most inventive version of this classic Louisiana dish you’ll ever have.

This place was EVERYTHING and then some! The Crab Beignets were phenomenal! Brian at the bar, mixed great (pre-dinner) drinks and Brian our waiter was very attentive to every detail, including the food recommendations. He was accompanied by 2-3 other gentlemen that help take care of us, and the service was well timed and very friendly! The restaurant was hopping for 9:00 on a Saturday night- not an empty seat in the house! But the noise level was not where we couldn't enjoy an intimate conversation. A very relaxing and enjoyable dinner. Wouldn't have thought I was 75 yards from the chaos of Bourbon Street. We will be recommending Restaurant Revolution and MOST DEFINITELY will be back!

Luis and his staff made us feel so comfortable. Our every request was met with enthusiasm. The salad was fresh, the short ribs were tender and the French onion dip was excellent and the value was exceptional. Then the service team brought the desserts and the day was like heaven. Our experience was fun, inspiring, and delicious. I'd wholeheartedly recommend the venue, the food, and the staff.

This restaurant offers modern American cooking. The turtle soup at a perfect temperature with mini deviled eggs was a delight. The beet salad was only 4 pieces of beets on greens. Scallops were appropriately grilled with thin celery ribbons and a small amount of white bean puree. The wine list is so massive that you are handed an i-pad that presents a menu of categories that when selected opens to an exhaustive list of specifics that when selected displays a description. Fear not, after a careful search you can find the by-the-glass offerings. The dessert menu shares the same presentation along with after-dinner drinks. The meal ends with a selection of complimentary small sweets in a charming box with drawers that when opened reveal the sweet within. An actual edible praline is included which puts to shame the others found throughout the city. Be sure to get a reservation well in advance of your dining date!
