    Amazing restaurant with great ambiance and creative, delicious food. Unfortunately, Rib eye steak had great flavor but the quality of the meat was not good, very chewy, almost inedible. We would return but would not order steak.

    Exceptional environment, and we were well pampered, and yet somehow the food outshone everything! A business group of five and yet the noise levels on a busy night were surprising, never an issue for us to hear one another. The Short Rib Boudin appetizer was a hit with our Italian friends

    The bad: Ribeye cut was stringy/chewy, expensive, and just disappointing. The shrimp and grits was dry. The waiter scoffed at us for not ordering alcohol. "OH no, that's the best part of the meal." Not when you have a recovering alcoholic at the table, buddy!" The great: Salad was creative, a burst of varied flavors - absolutely refreshing and delicious. King cake dessert was very tasty and delightful, also very creative - the most interesting dessert I have ever had. Restaurant is very expensive but comfortable, cozy and beautiful decor. Tables very close together.

    My experience at Restaurant R’evolution was nothing short of perfection! I had a reservation for when they opened at 5 the night before Mardi Gras. I was greeted immediately and sat promptly when they started service. Amazingly, I was sat at the counter looking into the front kitchen! Kevin and Rome were my servers and they knocked it out of the park! Kevin upon my seating asked if I wanted a tour of the restaurant before my meal and he took me all over explaining the layout and even took me into the wine cellar and main kitchen to meet the chef! It was such a surprise!! I then was treated to even more surprises as the chef kept sending out extra bite for me to try from the menu, it was devine! The Death by Gumbo was beautifully done, the Elk was like butter in the mouth with a perfect accompaniment of shishito peppers. To end, the Bread Pudding Crème Brûlée with candied bacon and coffee ice cream made me feel like I was having a decadent breakfast for dessert, super fun! Hands down the best experience I’ve had at a restaurant! I will definitely be a returning customer and will bring anyone I can for the ride! 10/10 Marvelous Meal!

    One of the best meals we have ever had in New Orleans! Starters were Carrot and Buratta salad and the Lobster Onion Bisque both of which were excellent. For mains we had Chilean Sea Bass fish of the day and the Pork Picatta which were outstanding. Great service from Isaac. A true fine dining hideout in the middle of the chaos of the Quarter during Mardi Gras. We will definitely be back.

    We had a group of 8 including 1 child and 2 teens. Everyone found good options on the menu - the 7 year old had a lovely salad, plain noodles and crab meat which she loved. The charcuterie plate and foie gras were successful apps for the table and everyone enjoyed their individual app and entree courses. Turtle soup, the pate, lobster gnocchi, lamp chop, veal and asparagus were stand outs. Excellent service as always.

    I almost hate to leave this review because the secret will be out! This is, hands down, the best restaurant in New Orleans. Great menu that changes up with interesting additions all the time. The service is top notch. I live out of state and only get to town a few times a year. Yet, they treat me like I'm there every Friday and even know me on sight. I eat here every time I'm in town and will continue to do so. Perfect meal on Sunday, once again.

    Restaurant Revolution has been on my bucket list for years and was a HUGE disappointment. We took my son and daughter in law to dinner on their recent trip to New Orleans. My husband is an experienced CEO and director of operations in the restaurant industry in southeast Louisiana. We were aware that this is a very expensive restaurant and expected exceptional food and service, which was only average at best. There were only 3 tables seated when we arrived. The restaurant was freezing and no one could take off their coat. The first round of standard bar cocktails took over 25 minutes. Oysters Revolution style were served without utensils for the sauces and when requested were brought oversized deeming them useless. The turtle soup was very good. Blue crab beignets and short rib boudin were served lukewarm and were just okay. The lobster gnocchi had no flavor at all and was served barely warm and was not eaten. 2 of us ordered redfish Bienville, which was served a la carte and was good but we have had way way tastier fish dishes at almost every other New Orleans restaurant which we have eaten. The smoked duck was a couple of small medallions ( not even a full breast) on a plate with absolutely no presentation and was an exceptionally small portion. For dessert, we had a couple of ice creams/sorbets which were very good. The maple bread pudding creme brulee and bananas foster did not taste fresh and were SUPER disappointing. Our server was cheerful but not very responsive. Before writing this review, I tried to get Revolution to make things right. I called and left a message for the general manager the next day to discuss our experience, but never received a return call from anyone. New Orleans has an abundance of fabulous restaurants, but I cannot recommend this one.
