I want to start by stating that you should not go here if you are looking for inexpensive. I will say that it is worth every penny and then some. Rory was our head waiter and was gracious, funny, professional and helpful. Anthony was in charge and was not at all obtrusive and very kind. Ishmael was prompt and courteous... More

We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary at Restaurant R'evolution last night. We opted to sit at the Chef's Table rather than a 'romantic' quiet booth one usually reserves for these events. The Chef's Table is a long table top made from the trunk of a hundreds-year old tree, with communal seating along one side, looking into one of the kitchens.... More

Came here for a business dinner last night. The ambience is very nice. Hard to believe that this classy restaurant is in the middle of the "chaos" that's the French Quarter (loud music, lots of people drinking too much walking around on the streets). I loved the decor and the tranquility that this restaurant offers. Service was excellent. Very attentive... More

It has been a long long time since I have eaten in a such a classy classic old fashioned wonderful restaurant! Not pseudo-classy because it's expensive or over-the-top meddling service or exotic decor. No, Restaurant R'evolution is tastefully done with living-room (think "expensive living-room") fittings and look; superb service from staff dressed in dark coat and tie or equivalent dark... More

We went to a lot of good restaurants around the world in the past, but this is outstanding. Great food cooked to perfection and we'll presented. The staff has a great attention to the details. We were at a private room above the kitchen and it is a perfect place for special events as well. The wine list is outstanding... More

As a local, I am spoiled with amazing restaurant options right off my front porch. But, whenever I am in the mood for something that no where else in NOLA can compare, I go to Restaurant R'Evolution. Most recently, I was able to attend their weekend jazz brunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. The hostess who assisted me in making... More

My partner and I spent four days in NOLA recently, eating out for every meal, and this was by far the best choice we made! We shared a salad, an entree, and a side item, and all portions were sufficient for the two of us. The salad was respectable - 4 stars. The crab beignets were EXQUISITE. Food does not... More

Came in for lunch with some friends, we were from out of town and didn't really dress up for the occasion. The staff was very attentive and friendly, we didn't have to ask for a thing, they were on top of it. The food was the best we had while in town and the building itself was absolutely beautiful!

10 of us came to NO to celebrate a friends birthday. We had a private room at the restaurant. Everything was excellent from appetizers through desert. With a large party we had a mix of appetizers and meals. Everyone was very pleased with the meal. Huge wine selection and reasonably priced for a restaurant. Staff was super attentive and helpful....

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.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
