Brought some friends and they loved it6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousThe food and service was excellent! It's a
bit noisy, however. Furniture very comfortable.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerRalph's upscale ambience, background music of Italian favorites, the complimentary roasted peppers, and the waiter's (Anthony) quick attention to our drink orders set the scene for a memorable birthday dinner.
My entrée, Chicken Parmesan, almost filled the entire plate. The outstanding sauce even made the spaghetti side a topnotch choice. My husband, a rather fussy eater, was effusive about his delicious Shrimp Scampi and Pasta dish. Both entrees were rather reasonably priced. Because we had a birthday cake awaiting us at home, we skipped dessert. However, we are looking forward to trying the Tiramisu or Cannoli Cake the next time we're at Ralph's.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWould go back againWas a little concerned because it was a restaurant in a hotel but the food was very good and we had a very enjoyable evening. We did go on a Friday night so there was a guy in the bar area (but overlooking the dining area) singing Frank Sinatra songs. He sounded just like Sinatra. He was so good that when our meal was over we went up to the bar to have a drink and listen to him some more. Would recommend this restaurant to others.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMNew to the KOP sceneLARGE PORTIONS, great wine and beverage menu, fair prices, great for a date night journey as opposed to the other restaurants in or around the mall, only complaint was that the acoustics of the restaurant make the live entertainment hard on the ears5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat restaurant!Really enjoyed the food. Best fried calamari ever! Very big portions.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMJust like eating in south Philly!What a breath of fresh air - felt like we were actually eating out in south Philly vs the suburbs! Food was exceptional and thank u for your waiters with their Italian accents! Superb!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA ten star experienceThis was our first time dining at Ralph's and it won't be our last. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. Our server Tracey was excellent. Very knowledgable about the menu. Was there when we needed him, but didn't hurry us. The food was outstanding, portions large.
This will be our new favorite restaurant when we are in the KOP area.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Food & ServiceWe have being going to Ralph's in South Philly for years. Recently we found out they opened in the Sheraton in King of Prussia and decided to give it a try. WOW...great service and the same outstanding food as the original Ralph's. Ryan and Gabriella are doing an excellent job in keeping the family tradition. We will definitely go back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMyummyJust great classic Italian food. Many moons ago I was at the restaurant in South Philly. K of P is as good as I remember South street was.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSeriously?I had one of the best roasted pork sandwiches I have ever had, complete with broccoli rabe and roasted red peppers. Seriously though, no long hots???? Seriously?5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGets better and better eachGets better and better each time. Bruschetta, Mussels red, vealparm, chicken Trombino. Mind blowing Sunday dinner. Can't wait to go back again5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMHave yet to be disappointedHave yet to be disappointed here. Average more than one visit per month since they've opened. Definitely need reservations on Saturdays and Sundays. Ralph's KOP is a great meal and experience each visit, and definitely the best Italian in this neck of the woods. We had the chicken Sicilian and shrimp scampi this time, Mmmmm!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised!Had a wonderful meal, keeps the flavor of Ralph's original location in a more upscale setting.
Great food! Highly recommend the "Sea Bass"5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner, service not so much.I will say the appetizers were not so great, wish I would have gotten a salad. I asked the server what was on the cheese platter, he said "different cheeses." the staff should really know what is on the menu. The cheese platter by the way was terrible, 4 paper thin slises of apple and 3 grapes cut in half to go with three differnt very robust cheeses. It was up to me to guess what they were, still not sure but they were all very strong. The dinners however redeemed the appetizers, I had the parpadelle pomodoro and my husband had the chicken parm, both were great! For dessert we ordered the cannolis which were pretty much plain ricotta stuffed part of the way into the shell, the filling was bland and they didn't even bother fill it.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Ralph'sRalph's of South Philly in King of Prussia is excellent. I have been there for several business lunches as my office is nearby and our guests are always impressed and very happy. The food is delicious and be prepared - the portions are enormous!
Ralph's is great for lunch or dinner and the staff is very friendly and accomodating. I highly recommend.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again we enjoyed theOnce again we enjoyed the food ecept that the brocolli rabe appetizer still needed more garlic despite us asking twice for extra garlic. Even though all caetgories above are very good we really come an hour from home to see Steve Ritrovato perform. We know of many good Italian restaurants but only one with Steve!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOld World Charm in Modern SettingMy wife and I were very impressed with this restaurant. All staff including the bartender, server, hostess, managers, and the musician seemed to go out of their way to make sure everything was a good experience. The food and service made me think of the old world charm of good solid food made like they did generations ago and service that you don't see today - not overly formal, but there to make sure your experience is great. My wife had the Chicken Parm and I had the Veal Parm. Both are a great deal when you consider how big the piece of chicken or veal was. I also had the Mussels in White sauce and it was probably one of the best I've had in years. In addition, on Friday nights, they have a great singer.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Manager Ryan was fantastic.The Manager Ryan was fantastic. He special ordered escargot for my mother and I for mothersday. Above and beyond !!!
The wait staff was very attentive and also very nice. Overall it was my 2nd visit and I love it. Will be back in the future. Gives King of Prussia another great restaurant for people to go to.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMClassy, Great Service and DeliciousThis was our first time at Ralph's and we wanted to try King of Prussia, instead of going into the city on Mother's Day. We were pleasantly surprised at how wonderful the food and the service were. We shared an appetizer, and 'dipped' the plate clean with the crusty bread. We each had fantastic entrees - black lobster ravioli w/scallops, stuffed pork chop, wonderful chicken marsala, and we shared two desserts - cannoli cake and tiramisu. There were several wait staff taking care of us. They were friendly, but left us alone for time to talk. The room was modern and open without the normal tight quarters of old Italian restaurants. Everything was done perfectly, and the bill was less than expected. We will return again.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe meal was fantastic andThe meal was fantastic and our waiter was attentive and friendly. I already recommended Ralph's to many of our friends and family...Great Job!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good, simmerThe food was very good, simmer to the original Ralph's except that a bit more garlic would be appreciated. What we didn't like was that we asked to substitute a little more of the veggie that came
with our entree for the potato and were charged for a side. What we live the most is Steve Ritrovato singing there Friday nights - it is SO hard to find good live jazz/trad pop! Love the setup except that we asked for a table right by Steve and were told we could not sit in any of the 3 right in front of him, they didn't have a server for them. Give me a break, you couldn't move a server from the table we rejected? We sat at the bar, which was very pleasant with great service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMI was surprised the restaurantI was surprised the restaurant was inside the Sheraton as I was looking for a stand-alone building. Certainly not the Ralph's in So. Philly but the food was very good and the service was excellent. We will be going again.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMPolished at a reasonable priceAlthough the food isn't going to be an entirely new culinary experience, it is tasty and reasonably prices. With a professional atmosphere, Ralph's would be a great place for a business lunch or dinner. Better than you expect and less expensive than you image when you think of a hotel restaurant, this is definitely worth a visit.
If you know the storied past of Ralph's in the city, you should not expect old world charm or historically quaint decorations. This King of Prussia location is fairly formal and modern in execution and ambiance.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy but the food was great!My guest and I were there for a special occasion - his birthday. When reserving on open table I requested a cozy spot. We were seated at a table for 2 right below the very noisy bar. It was so noisy that we couldn't hear the the waiter read the specials.
The food was good but I would not suggest dining at Ralph's in King of Prussia for an intimate an relaxing meal with someone special.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Italian !So I thought Ralph's would be like its South Phila origin....wrong. Was a new and vibrant feel. Dining room was expansive and modern. Very comfortable with soothing modern decor. Our waitress was skilled, friendly and efficient. Food was out of this world with generous portions. Great value, best Italian outside of the city. Would highly recomend.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy to have Ralph's in KoP!Only my first time at the KoP location, but I was very happy that the food was as good as any I remember having at Ralph's/SPh. Renovations on the Sheraton are remarkable, and the restaurant was lovely. Will definitely be back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs Good As South PhillyThis location is much closer to my home. The menu and recipes are the same as the original location. Very delicious and authentic Italian food. Service was swift and the food arrived to the table quickly and was very hot. Great quiet atmosphere with many tables that could be secluded and romantic if so desired. There was plenty of space between tables throughout the restaurant. Loved the soft Italian music playing.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJust like the old neighborhood.I have been to the original Ralph's on 9th street in the old neighborhood, the ambience was the same, the decor was a lot nicer than the old Ralph's the parking is much better. The service was excellent, the manager only came to the table to say "enjoy your entrees" . I have been to other restaurants where a staff member constantly stops by and asks if everything is ok. The staff at Ralph's are confident that everything is excellent so they do not ask if your food or service is ok.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a small group post-CommunionWe had a small group post-Communion dinner; our waitstaff was great, and patient considering the small children in our party and the accident on I-76 that delayed two of our guests. The food was great, the price was reasonable. I can't wait to go back for a more leisurely dining experience without the kids!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat meal - Check your billOverall, we enjoyed our meal. There was one issue, however. My daughter's filet mignon was delivered very well done when she had requested medium rare. The waiter said it would take a while to get a new one. The manager happened by and saw she had no plate and asked why, so I told him. He went to the kitchen and returned in a few minutes with a perfectly cooked steak. Then, when the bill came, there was no mention of the incident, no apology, and no discount. Also, I was charged for a side that I asked for instead of the regular side. I asked for the manager and he took care of it and comp'd our dessert. The singer was great.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, reasonable prices,Great food, reasonable prices, lacking nice ambiance. Definitely not a bad place by any means but not an outstanding place either.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA great throw back to oldA great throw back to old Italian it was very good.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waiter was outstandingOur waiter was outstanding and the food was very good too.
We look forward to our next visit.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was great and theThe food was great and the wine list was extensive. Lots of good food selections. Ambiance was very modern and new. Just opened in this location recently and should be a strong choice for great Italian food.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMRalph'sGreat food and service! Love this restaurant in South Philly, now have new favorite in K of P! Each very different in ambience but food is stellar @ both locations!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meals were great. I hadOur meals were great. I had veal saltimbocca and the Madeira sauce was outstanding. We are Italian and retirees and felt the prices were high for what we consider standard Italian food. Our reservation was 6pm on a Friday night and were entertained by a singer who was quite good at singing Sinatra. However, by the time we left, we weren't able to hear each other because of the additional noise from the other tables. We will recommend Ralph's for the food, service and bar but will include comments about the noise level and prices.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSince we have been going toSince we have been going to the original Ralph's for years, we were worried that the "new" Ralph's would be a let-down... but we were happy to find that this Ralph's offers the same food quality and service! And it's much closer to our house and easier to park! Still family-run - the chef came out and pointed out pictures of his great-grandfather and other relatives who worked at the original restaurant. A note: the famous eggplant parmigiana dish is not on the menu but you can ask for it! We'll be back!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, large portions,Great food, large portions, and extremely attentive service.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty ItalianMy husband and and I went to Ralph's for the first time this weekend. We arrived early so got a couple of drinks at the bar first. My martini was made perfectly, dry with extra olives. Nice ambiance at the inside bar.
For dinner, we split the calamari which was really tasty although the sauce was a little oily. We also split a Caesar salad, which was pretty standard, nothing really remarkable. For our entrees, my husband got the scallop and pasta special and I got the linguine with red clam sauce. We both devoured our dinners. Very good.
Overall we both enjoyed our meals. Portions were generous and it was nice to go out for a nice dinner in K o P somewhere that's not a chain restaurant. We would definitely go back4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Taste of South PhillyMy husband and I are both from South Philly and we are so happy that we have a Taste of our food coming to us.
Salvator our waiter was very attentive to us and very knowledgeable of all the foods on the menu.
I'm taking my co-worker to lunch on thursday April 18th4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA fine night from arriving,A fine night from arriving, to the table service, and the Food was great.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRalph's of South Philly KOPWell where should I begin. I went to this restaurant for my birthday dinner with my family. We were told by friends that we had to try this restaurant. There are two Matts who waiter there. I was told to ask for Cousin Matt. He was wonderful. Attentive. Great service. My table was thrilled. We never needed for anything. The service was amazing. We will make this our new place for special occasions, and we will certainly ask for Cousin Matt, whenever we go. From the mussels red and white, and the Sicilian calamari, Veal Chop, Veal Picante, Veal Parm, a special (with shrimp, broc, in a mussels white sauce over penne) amazing. The entire staff came out to sing happy birthday. If you don't make Ralph's your place to go, you are crazy. Loved It!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat to have Ralph's in the burbs!Classic Italian restaurant with all the old-time classics you ate as a kid like veal and chicken parmagiana... Delicious tomato sauce and the portions were ample enough for take-home for a 2nd meal. The mussels were great and definitely big enough to share as an appetizer. The bread was great, but wish it was served warm. Great to have Ralph's now in KOP! The ambiance is nothing like the original Ralph's in South Philly... the one in KOP is in the new Sheraton hotel - wish the look and feel of the restaurant was more like the original. The floor is carpeted and you feel like you're in a hotel ballroom, rather than a great Italian restaurant. That4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYou will love the food atYou will love the food at Ralph's in King of Prussia. Great new restaurant .4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was solid and reliableFood was solid and reliable - super size portions, though. Our waitress (Laura) was outstanding.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMHave dined at Ralph's on 9thHave dined at Ralph's on 9th Street for decades. Have never been disappointed. It is a family favorite. But have to say the Ralph's in KOP is a hassle-free (parking and space in restaurant) alternative. The staff is warm and welcoming. The food is wonderful. The atmosphere a step up from 9th Street. Our waiter, Aries, was fun, efficient and accomodating. He made it a great experience. Will go again, and again! Thanks Ralph's4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThis restaurant is very fancy.This restaurant is very fancy. We did not realize this, and brought our two young children. Our waiter and the entire staff went way out of their way to pay special attention to our children and make them comfortable. They brought food and drinks out early for the kids, and politely child-proofed the table to avoid any spilling incidents. The result was a great experience by all. The food was wonderful and they really impressed us with their service. Highly recommend.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
