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.

This restaurant I was prepared to love. I had eaten at a few places in New Orleans that were high end and yes I am spoiled by living in SF with the great restaurants. But this place was really overrated. The food was average and unimaginative.

Every time I get to New Orleans, I save the "big" night for Resaurant R'evolution! The experience you have there is beyond what most people get to experience. They have their wine on an IPad. The food is local and seasonal. The atmospher is a mix of French Bistro, 5 star chop house and New Orleans French Quarter. The staff... More

Dining alone, sitting at the bar--no worries. The entire menu is yours for the choosing, and good luck with that! I had the crab and corn cappuccino soup with black truffle nod popcorn, so good I wanted to lift the cup to slurp the last drop. The bartender told me he wouldn't make too much fun of me if I...

Walked in without a reservation for five. They told us it would be an hour. We were advised to go to the fantastic jazz bar in the hotel which we did. (Did not want to leave) and they came to get us as mentioned. Service top notch, people top notch, food top notch. I eat at a lot of Five... More

As is common with our travels, we had no dinner reservations on the final night of our trip. We were disappointed earlier in the day at Sylvain, with terrible service. One of our guilty pleasures is to walk into great restaurants and find a seat at the bar - we entered Restaurant R'evolution around 7:30 and there were exactly two... More

When you travel to the French Quarter of New Orleans, you expect to encounter some great food. This was more than that, almost a spiritual awakening of culinary delights. I won't bore you with the ins and outs, and everything we ordered. JUST GO AND EXPERIENCE!!!!! It's expensive, but no more than a Ruth's Chriss or Flemings. What do you... More

Our friend, a local, chose this restaurant for our party of 10. Every dish was nicely presented and delicious. The scallops with foie gras was memorable as was the hoisin glazed fish. Service was very attentive and professional. Drinks and wine list excellent. High priced but worth it for special occasions.

Seated in the back open kitchen room was not to our liking. They immediately made us happy by changing our table next to the window along the street. From that moment on "Let the games begin" It was quite a show from that moment on. Everything and I mean everything was incredible. The menu selections, the drink list, the waiter... More
