I am a local and have been to this restaurant several times, it was always great.. This last visit with friends from out of town was a bit disappointing. The service was definitely off this night as was my dish. I ordered the risotto with crawfish and asparagus, when it arrived I actually saw maybe 2 or 3 tiny crawfish... More

Coop's had great fried chicken. It was close to Cafe DuMond for the great beignetts. The Gumbo Pot was good, but shrimp creole was better at Coop's. Leah's Praline was very good. I had read of these places on Trip Advisor. It was a great help!!

Deservedly top-rated... We went for lunch and it was busy but did not feel crowded in the formal dining area. The food was terrific: sweet potato bisque, house salad with fresh veggies, Shrimp diavolo w/spaghetti, crab cakes (stunningly good), brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes... no room for dessert. (I had hoped the crab beignets would be available but not til late... More

Visiting R'evolution has always been a treat, an excellent experience. It is a restaurant since it opened that I had at the top of my list. This time the service was certainly an experience to remember, one that I never hope to repeat and would not wish upon anyone else. Down to the bottom of my list. As a local... More

Unable to secure a reservation, at about 5:30 we took a chance and went to the bar where reservations aren't taken. The food was truly excellent as expected, and the service was outstanding. Between other tasks the lead bartender would stop by and engage in very friendly conversation. In every respect, this was our most enjoyable meal in New Orleans--and... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch on my birthday and enjoyed it. The service was great and the food was good, although not a lot. I had the Eggs a la creme and it was just creamy scrambled eggs served in a martini glass. It was very good, but I like a little more variety in my meals... More

Attentive service and excellent food was the hallmark of this dining experience. Waiters were knowledgeable and answered our questions and made suggestions. We started with champagne and made our way through several courses, all excellently prepared and served with flair. It is a beautifully appointed restaurant and very worthy of a visit, maybe 2 or 3!

The food was excellent, Service was wonderful. The restaurant was nicely laid out and comfortable. We had the private dining area during our visit, with its own sliding French doors for privacy and the wine list is extensive! All in all a great place for dining..

Beautiful, elegant restaurant in the french quarter. Southern food with a twist. Everything was excellent. The service was great, but a bit stuffy.
