Restaurant R'evolution - Hospitality in the French Quarter
When I think of the French Quarter in New Orleans, great wine and excellent hospitality aren't what first come to mind. This restaurant had both, and their food was killer too. I recently spent a few days in New Orleans, and let me tell you, dining at Restaurant R'evolution was definitely a highlight of our trip.
About the Restaurant
This is a joint venture between Chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto that offers Cajun/Creole cuisine as well as steak, pasta and game. The food was incredible, the wine was great, but the impeccable hospitality was the most impressive.
The day of our reservation I sent an email l their General Manager Luis Ochoa asking if I could tour their wine cellar. He immediately responded within 5 minutes and not only offered a tour of the cellar, but of the whole restaurant as well.
During our stay our team of service staff were very prompt and attentive. They have great suggestions and when I couldn't decide between the truffle mashed potatoes and the grits, they brought both out. Our server even opened up a bottle of Barolo and shared a couple of glasses with us.
Upon the conclusion of our dinner the Bar Manager Patrick Sterling took my girlfriend and I on a tour of the restaurant, cellar and the kitchen.
This is a wonderful restaurant and their team really made the experience. I look forward to coming back on my next visit to Nola.
