This is a hard write up. The food was excellent. Very unusual. The service was excellent. We didn't have one waiter, but several. This was a little unnerving and I wasn't crazy about it. Almost like they were in training. Several "managers" hovering around and helping clear the tables. You have to be careful with tables. Some are in a... More

We had reservations at Restaurant Revolution and it was an amazing evening. The food was divine, but I was more impressed with the service. Scott, Luke, and Robert were on point all evening. Luke even took the ring back to the kitchen and placed it in the dessert box. What an incredible experience.

We loved it from the minute we walked in until we reluctantly left hours later. My two lifelong best friends and I went while we were in New Orleans to celebrate our 50th birthdays together. When the manager heard it was our birthday celebration, he bent over backwards to make everything wonderful for us. The service was impeccable, friendly, and... More

Really loved the look and feel of this bar. Felt like it had a lot of cool history (not sure if it actually does!) We also had lunch here and it was pretty delicious. The open kitchen is absolutely gorgeous.

This was the most incredible restaurant I've been to in my life, everything was absolutely fabulous. First of all the atmosphere and the service was exceptional, I love the automatic sliding doors that let you see into the kitchen, as well as a beautiful view of the chefs that were in plain view. For starters the cocktails were delicious and... More

We went back after having the wonderful Crabmeat Beignet's at Brunch in December. The Cajan fried Oyster salad was also good. Venison, Sweetbreads and rabbit are some offerings a little different. There are lots of choices and I love fine dining but I think next time I will go sit at the bar and get the Crabmeat beignet's or go... More

Wife and I had taken uber heading to another restaurant when traffic had us stopped right in front of revolution. We decided to jump out and give it a try.

I really wanted to like this place but the service really killed it. Especially since it seemed like we had such a seasoned waiter. I cannot take anything away from the Shrimp and marscapone grits. It was absolutely amazing. A must try! Unfortunately, my red fish was way overcooked and tough. That's too bad because it had great flavor. It... More

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.
