    Ralph's is phenomenal. The food is exceptional, without being pretentious. The service is impeccable, while still personable and warm. My only complaint is the noise level at night. It's not a distracting volume but it does interfere with my desire to hear Sinatra crooning the classics. My complaint, however, will not keep me away from Ralph's. There are too many scrumptious choices on the menu I have yet to try.

    My husband ordered eggplant Parmesan and was told it came with his choice of pasta or a vegetable. When he asked for Alfredo sauce on his pasta he was told there would be a small up charge, to which he agreed. The "small up charge" was eight dollars which in our opinion was not small and actually ridiculous considering his whole meal was only $15. In addition, my chicken Parmesan came out cold and had to be sent back twice - the first time they tried to heat it they just put hot sauce on top.

    I called Ralphs in advance to ask if they offered any garlic / gluten free options for me, they insisted that they could accommodate. I wanted to try someplace new and romantic for my husband and I. The waiter was extremely rude when I asked him for gluten/garlic options. He actually made me feel uncomfortable. I did end up ordering Chicken Marasala (I couldn't have any vegetables since they were all soaked in garlic or pasta, which they offered no gluten free choices.) My husband and I chalked this experience up to "One & Done". We live very close but will never dine there again. The room was very loud anyway and detracted from the atmosphere.

    Went for a lovely Sunday late lunch for end of restaurant week. Everything was perfect. Great menu, great value, great service. Tried a type of gnocchi I never had before with Gorgonzola. May have been best pasta dish of my life, and I get pasta everywhere.

    This place just keeps getting better and better. It was fun to have a drink and watch the football games before our meal. The staff here are real people and not robots, so they would actually interact with us during and about the games. Personality goes a long way towards service. Food speaks for itself. Amazing just like south philly. Very much needed in KOP and suburbs area.

    When I made the reservation through Open Table from the Main Line Restaurant Week website, I thought we would be having the Restaurant Week menu. However, when we arrived, we were told that the menu was not being offered on Saturday night. While my husband and I have dined at Ralph's many times in the past, we had invited 4 others to join us for this special menu. We were offered coffee and dessert as compensation and the food and service were excellent as usual. But it was certainly very disappointing and embarrassing that this was not noted on the website especially since we were bringing some friends that had previously not been to Ralph's. I would ask that in the future such exceptions be noted on the website. Thank you.

    The food was average, and the service was low to below average. It seemed like we had three different servers but none of them talked to each other. At one ppoint it seemed two were arguing because one didn't take the empty wine glass off the table when he went to get a new one. Not sure it that some sort of code letting the other two know that our drinks are being taken care of. Any way, there are better places to go when you are spending $100 for dinner.

    We had an exceptional meal at Ralphs in King of Prussia. We started with the roasted peppers and fresh mozzarella - large enough to share. I ordered the Sea Bass made with the white wine, olives and capers ( not the red sauce which was also an option) ...moist, flavorful and instead of pasta I had broccoli with garlic. Relatively figure friendly. My husband had the veal chop and pasta. Our friend had dietary restrictions. The waiter was knowledgeable of the ingredients in each dish and helpful in selecting the best one for her. The staff was attentive, but not intrusive. Parking was easy. All in all....great night out...close to home ...a win win!

    We went to Ralph's during restaurant week special. $30 fixed price for 3 courses. Roasted peppers and Caesar salad were good but meal went downhill from there. Although portion size was good Calamari and mussels we too spicy and too much pepper. No sauce for the calamari. Main course of veal parm was over breaded and over cooked. Gnocchi with Gorgonzola was over powering. Wine over priced. Positive note service was great.

    We recently tried Ralph's in K of P for the first time. Physically, we missed the charm of the South Philadelphia restaurant. We were first seated at a table with one chair and a banquette that was so low we could not remain there. The service was excellent and they did try and accommodate us graciously. The food was, overall, very good. The shrimp scampi was delicious. My husband enjoyed the lentil soup, rum cake and peppers and sausage. However, the side of broccoli rabb he ordered was very poor and he had to send it back. Once again, the waiter was very helpful. With all of the fine Italian restaurants in the suburbs, we will probably not return. However, if you are staying at the Sheraton, I would not hesitate to eat there.

    Excelent menu of salads and entrees but we went with two sandwich selections. We were pleased with the Chicken Caprese and Roast Pork with provolone and roasted peppers. The accompanying potato chips looked liked the went through a chipper but they were fresh so no big deal. Looking forward to trying them for dinner.

    Overall I think it was good. There wasn't anything exceptional about it, but it was a great place for a lunch meeting. The pasta was very good, but if you are particular about your Tiramisu this is not the place for it. It was quite dry and lacked flavor.

    This was my wife and I's second trip to Ralphs. I can probably say we won't be back. The atmosphere was just OK--it was a mix between hotel and outside guests. The noise level was a bit loud with a very faint background music. The food was good overall except for my chicken marsala which was too creamy/rich. Service was OK. Overall, not worth the $100+ bill.

    We had been to Ralph's a few times before and had god food, but everything seemed to have been even better this time! There were alo more vegetarian items than I remembered. My husband really loved the Veal saltimbocca -saying it was one of the best veal dishes he had ever had. I had the cheese plate, whcih really was enough for a dinner entree - good variey and very delicious. Broccoli rabe was definitely more tender than on prior visits. Ralph's is close to so many things - we will be back soon.

    The Crooner singing Sinatra standards in the bar was very talented, but the music was a too loud for intimate conversation. Good for a festive night out, but you will need to restrict your romantic moments to the time between sets. Food was very decent, but not exceptional--although we stuck with the "classic" menu imported from the original South Philly restaurant

    We were celebrating our 36th anniversary which was noted on our open table reservation. It was not mentioned by any of the staff. Initially we were seated at a banquet where the table was way to high for the seat and we requested to be moved. They moved us to a busy aisle where servers constantly walked by the table, so it was too close and uncomfortable. It took at least 15 minutes to get our drinks. Clearly, the waiter was new and overwhelmed. Once we ordered it took at least 20 minutes to get our first course. Ralph's should never make a beet salad. The dressing was tasteless and I had a ton of water on the plate-as if they washed the greens and forgot to drain them. The main courses were better. Would not go back ever.

    This was our 5th or 6th experience at Ralph's, but we brought along friends who were there for the first time. They were greatly impressed with the ambiance and the attentiveness of our waiter, But more importantly, they were thrilled with the delicious authentic Italian food. We had Chilean Sea bass (my all-time favorite), Shrimp Arrabbiatta, Veal Chop, and Veal Scalopinni. It was delicious and plenty to eat.

    We have been to the original Ralph's in South Philly several times and have always enjoyed it. So When I was looking for an italian restaurant in the KOP area and Ralph's of South Philly KOP came up, I was intrigued. We enjoyed our meal very much! Our Waiter was attentive. I like that this restaurant has a more contemporary feel and the location is right near KOP mall in the Sheraton. There were three of us in the party. We had two salads to start: the beet salad and caprese. I had the bolognese pasta, my husband had chicken Sorrento, and our son had Pasta alfredo. Everything was very delicious and portions were good size. Location is very close to the KOP mall. We'll be back...

    For a restaurant located inside a hotel (Sheraton) the design and ambiance of Ralph's was nice. However the waitstaff was not on par with what the restaurant intends to be. The menu pricing calls for a more refined server than Ralph's staff has. The food was very inconsistent a side order of pasta (spaghetti with olive oil and garlic) had to be sent back twice because the garlic was burnt inedibly. Two veal dishes were passable but underwhelming. The highlight was a chocolate cake desert. Even their signature "homemade cannoli" was lacking. I will not be back.
