What a amazing place. Staff, food and atmosphere were just amazing. Considering you are in the heart of the French quarter it did not feel like it. The entire meal was very relaxed and wonderful. Good not have picked a better place to celebrate. Thanks.

Decided to do fancy, upscale, and let's be honest, expensive for my birthday. This place did not disappoint. It was conveniently located in my hotel (Royal Sonesta) and the dining and staff were very friendly, pleasant, professional and courteous. The bartenders were not that good but thankfully we did not have to wait long for our table. The food was... More

We had a birthday dinner in the "chef's office", a private dining room off the kitchen that overlooks the kitchen. The service was perfect. They explained how the dishes were prepared, the ingredients, the history of the restaurant. It was a wonderful evening.

Very nice restaurant with exceptional service. There was a problem with our meal (slight) and they went way out of their way to make it right. It is very pricy but worth it for a special occasion restaurant. Did not give 5 stars because we were seated in the area of the restaurant by the service door and open kitchen.... More

Simply amazing. Modern french/creole food. You can get traditional dishes and modern ones, but all are tasty. The Shrimp and Grits is amazing as is the braised beef rib. The servers are great and have personality. They can take it and give it with the best of them. The general manager even gets in on the action serving dishes.

Its hard to not find a great place to eat in New Orleans, but is a real treat to find a spot that exceeds all of your expectations. Chef John Folse has created a new high water mark in this city. The trio of seafood appetizer was incredibly fresh and delicious. The scallops and Foie Gras had everyone else at... More

My husband and I are hardcore foodies, Michelin Star fanatics, with higher than standard expectations. We tried some of the best restaurants in the world and consequently had to try some of the best rated ones in New Orleans, and R'evolution is definitely one. It is a good place, though the menu has lots of pork on it. It is... More

Went here today for Jazz Brunch. Wonderful new place for us but one we will return to. Breakfast selection was huge. Could have gotten the Coolinary menu for August Restaurant Month but couldn't eat that much. Good drinks before hand and really great coffee. And the service was top notch. Keep this on your radar
