I go to Ralph Brennan's every year to celebrate my birthday. The live music is nice, the food is always amazing, the staff is incredibly on-point and friendly, it's an incredible experience. I look forward to this dinner all year for good reason.

The appetizers, food and drinks were outstanding and soo delicious. I was especially grateful because the restaurant manager made a special exception for us and sat us at table that was further away from a door where there was a very cold draft. The section wasn't open but he found a server who was willing to take on an extra table in her section to accommodate our request. We greatly appreciated this kindness shown to us. We dined comfortably and had a great time.

What a fun place to dine and celebrate Mardi Gras! Food was excellent as always and the service was fantastic. We drive up from San Diego about twice a year just for the food and beverages. Fun for young and old. A must try if you haven't been here before.

We were visiting Disneyland and decided to eat here. It was Fat Tuesday and this restaurant did it up right. You would have thought you were in New Orleans! They had a wonderful Cajun band playing during our meal. I ordered the shrimp and grits. They were done to perfection. My husband had the special pasta dish that he raved about. The restaurant was packed but our server was so attentive. We highly recommend this restaurant.

Overall very positive experience. Food was good although I would have expected more flavor out of the jambalaya. Service was excellent, no issues there. A little pricey but it was at Disneyland so you expect to pay a little more

Long time reservation and they sat us in a terrible location even though we asked to move. Filet mignon sub par. Croutons on salad inedible. Never brought water. Evertjimg was mediocre. Server was good but needed to have some training. Never bring coffee with sugar and no spoon. Things like that

Very good food, not much ambiance in the day because there are no bands playing. But at night the whole restaurant swings to some live Jazz.

This is no Ralph Brennan's from New Orleans, that's for sure. It's Disney meets New Orleans. Wish they had the same food menu as New Orleans. They Californiad it up a bit. (Pasta in the Jumbalaya instead of rice). We made reservations but got stuck sitting outside. It was pretty cold/windy even with heavy jackets. It would have been much more pleasant to sit at a nice table inside. Our bad for not insisting on the extra wait when we found out. Food was cold in minutes but it was good. Overpriced but that is typical for Downtown Disney dining. We have been to the bar and eaten there before. Much more pleasant. Ok for summer seating outside in the evening but not this February. Kind of a bummer dinner. Garlic bread was yummy & drinks were nice and strong. Hubby had BBQ shrimp. Said it was ok but N.O. was much better.

We made this reservation for brunch. They no longer serve brunch. That was okay. If you are looking for NOLA dining, this is not it. It’s a Disney version. Bland and expensive for what you get. Go to New Orleans instead!
