We derive the one-loop perturbative formula of the redshift-space matter power spectrum after density field reconstruction in the Zeldovich approximation. We find that the reconstruction reduces the amplitudes of nonlinear one-loop perturbative terms significantly by partially erasing the nonlinear mode-coupling between density and velocity fields. In comparison with N-body simulations, we find that both the monopole and quadrupole spectra of reconstructed matter density fields agree with the one-loop perturbation theory up to higher wavenumber than those before reconstruction. We also evaluate the impact on cosmic growth rate assuming the survey volume and the number density like the Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey and find that the total error, including statistical and systematic ones due to one-loop approximation, decreases by half.
