A little on the heavy side. Loved the granola homemade yogurt, grilled striped bass was good and I had chosen to add crabmeat, but I was searching the taste of the pineapple, instead I tasted the butter sauce.

Enjoyed a lovely "Restaurant Week" meal at Ralph's the other night! I'm a big fan of this restaurant in general. The location is lovely, the food is always top notch, and the service is excellent. It is great for a casual weekday meal or a fancy weekend event.

Took some friends from out of town to dinner at Ralph’s. I haven’t been in awhile. I found the food totally underwhelming (except for the Shrimp Skully appetizer). We also ordered the crab meat salad, asparagus, and redfish which was pretty bland. I thought the “three apps + glass of wine = for 33 dollars” was a great deal. Our waitress was very nice and responsive. We requested a quiet table and they put us in probably the quietest possible spot, so that was much appreciated.

Went with friends, for first time in a few year. It did not disappoint. Everything was delicious and service s was excellent. We shared the pompano special, and shared 4 appetizers every one being better than the next- creole tomato tart; squash medley; eggplant purée; fries with truffle mayo. Only slight (emphasize slight) disappointment was the homemade doberge cake- but we remember the original Beulah Ledner (And the successor from Gambinos which can’t be beat). So, out of towners, GREAT choice that is an out of the way neighborhood gem right across from the beautiful oaks along Metairie bayou in City Park.

Wonderful find on our most recent trip. It's, of course, right across the street from City Park which on its own is a great place for sightseeing. The ambiance and food here is what you would expect from a restaurant with the "Brennan" name attached, New Orleans with its best foot forward... and with the exacting wait staff that has become synonymous with NOLA finer eateries. A must, if not only for the Banana Bread Pudding (w/Cream Cheese ice cream!).

The food was excellent, as was the service. Although there was a slight delay from the bar, that time was filled by the server and the floor manager with insight into the menu items and into the specials. We have not frequented Ralph's over the last few years due to construction on Canal Street, thankfully that is over, and Ralph's is back on the go to list.

We ALWAYS enjoy Ralph's. The beautiful setting overlooking City Park, valet parking, wonderful wait staff and some of THE BEST FOOD IN NEW ORLEANS! In a city filled with great restaurants, it can't be beat. Over the years we have enjoyed private parties upstairs including the balcony views of the magnificent moss draped oak trees of City Park. The folks at Ralph's truly understand hospitality and great culinary treats! You will not be disappointed.

Very good appetizers for lunch. Good chicken sandwich. Good service. But absolutely the worst catfish and one of the worst cheeseburgers I have ever had. They gave me a free cocktail for my trouble, but ruined my lunch date with horrible food. I had to share hers The whole meal should have been free. Just the truth

Ralph’s on the Park came highly recommended and as a fan of Brennan restaurants I was very excited to try their uptown offering...

They disappointed me when my drink wasn’t fixed as I requested (splash of pomegranate)...it came as the bartender wanted to serve it.

I ordered steak and frites - medium rare...

The first steak came out horrifyingly medium-well...the second steak....medium well....

The 3rd steak was medium...I had to catch a flight so...I said fine and grabbed a to go box.

The waitress took the filet off my bill...I am looking forward to trying it lunch tomorrow.

I will try the restaurant again...service was good, dining room lovely...mess up my drink AND entree...fail.

I had high expectations of Ralphs and was less than impressed on my first and most likely last visit. Our server was very nice and polite and took good care of us. I think that is the one thing that was done right.

The food was overpriced and quite frankly not that good. 2 of us had the crab meat eggs Benedict 2 of us had the Ralphs breakfast and one of us had the panned chicken. First of all on a busy Sunday, I was extremely disappointed in that all of our eggs were overcooked. both sets of poached eggs resembled boiled eggs and both sets of "over easy" eggs were cooked all the way. Both Benedict were sent back and the second time they came out under cooked, almost raw so we did not bother sending the others back. for $60 per person for Brunch, my expectations were much higher. I would not recommend Ralphs. There are too many other restaurants in New Orleans that provide the same high quality service and much higher quality food.
