Description: Serving Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner daily (through December 2014) and Sunday Jazz Brunch. 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 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.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.

My friends and I have season tickets for the Broadway Across America series at the Saenger on Sunday afternoons. Ready to try something different, we made reservations at Restaurant R'evolution. The staff is top notch. From our very first visit we were treated to impeccable service and friendliness. Now that we go there all during the theatre season, we are... More

I have lived in and visited New Orleans for years! We have stayed at the Royal Sonesta before and it is a great place to stay. I do not believe this restaurant was there when we stayed before. I always try new restaurants and some old favorites when we visit! Our meal was outstanding from start to finish! The turtle... More

There are dozens or outstanding and world famous restaurants in New Orleans. R'evolution may not yet be world famous, but it is only a matter of time. It is an exciting addition to the rich food scene and culture in the Vieux Carre. To begin with, the front desk hosts go about their job with great efficiency. They diligently got... More

Wonderful restaurant with many entrees, felt underdressed as we can in from the rain but waiters were very friendly. My choice was Shrimp and Grits which was a very large dish and tasty. Will be a restaurant we won't forget.

We were really looking forward to our meal at Restaurant R'evolution. My friend and I are foodies and we've traveled to cities just to visit a particular restaurant on occasion. We had a phenomenal meal at GW Fins the night before and were capping off our New Orleans trip with R'evolution. What a let-down. Don't get me wrong. The food... More

This was a very enjoyable experience from the ambience, service, and especially the food. I had a quail extravaganza ... death by gumbo was a quail breast split and stuffed with oysters, sausage, and rice and then bathed in a rich and smoky broth ... I followed that with a main course of quail three ways. Both were delicious and... More

We had read reviews and wanted to try it for lunch but went for dinner instead. It was outstanding. The gnocchi with lobster was awesome as an appetizer as were the scallops for the entree. My spouse had the ribeye steak and loved it. Dessert and coffee were all great but the service was what made it an even better... More

On my first trip to New Orleans, I chose to eat at this restaurant due to its Zagat reviews and an interesting menu. I dined alone and ended up seated at the chef's table, right next to the kitchen, so I got to chat up the chefs a bit. The service was impeccable with spot-on wine recommendations and fun conversation... More

My husband and I ate at Restaurant R evolution for our 40th wedding anniversary . Overall it was a nice dining experience but we probably would not eat there again because the food did not meet our expectations. . The positives are that the restaurant is in the Royal Sonesta which is absolutely one of our favorite hotels anywhere and... More
