We live Ralph’s. Portions were smaller than usual. The appetizers came out after the soups and salads.

The food was phenomenal. My only complaint was the high noise level. However the hostess and the waitress were both very accommodating and tried to help move us to a different table. Overall it was a great night. The food is fabulous! (Especially the crawfish salad and the baked oysters)

We’ve done Ralph’s several times as our to-go brunch spot. This was our first dinner there. It was wonderful. Food, service, and ambience were all lovely. We will return again for both brunch and dinner for sure.

It looks like the crowd at Ralph's was at full speed for Brunch yesterday. Great service and food as normal. It was bit hot to sit outside so the dining room was packed.

Our waitress was great. View of the park was nice. Food was very good although the Turtle soup was too salty for my taste. Wanted ice cream for desert but they don't have that ??

Overall I would return again on another visit to NO.

We chose to dine at Ralph's on the Park because of the geographic location for a friend who lives in the neighborhood and does not drive. The restaurant was extremely inviting. We made a reservation for 4. One of our guests thought he wasn't going to be able to join us; so we checked for a party of 3. However, our friend decided he could join us after all. The server was not bothered by our switching of the # of people dining. In fact, our server, Emily, was great. She suggested specialty cocktails that were wonderful. The food was delicious. It was a great overall experience.

We went here for my daughter's birthday brunch, and what a special experience it was! They had personalized menus with her name that were seriously the highlight of her day. The food was AMAZING, and we had the sweetest waitress Angel. Can't wait for our next visit!!!

Ralph's on the Park is a hidden gem that has been part of our family for years. Engagement announcements, Wedding Rehearsal dinners and family Christmas dinners always make fond memories of great food, friends, & family. As a Brennan restaurant in New Orleans, their tradition is intact with every day treats like Turtle Soup and BBQ Shrimp. Yet, their creativity always inspires one to expand their food adventures. Located adjacent to New Orleans City Park, their ambiance is second to none and there is no better place to experience Christmas in the Oaks.

We were on our honeymoon and stopped in for brunch!! The bbq shrimp and turtle soup with the croissants were amazing! I had the crawfish salad and it was ok - but extremely salty and honestly not worth th price. The handmade sodas were delicious too!

We went there for a friend’s birthday lunch. They gave us a beautiful table with a ribbon across the tablecloth to signify an occasion. They made the birthday girl feel special with a happy birthday menu, and a surprise dessert. The special attention was much appreciated. Adele, our server, was excellent and the food was delicious. They did not rush us through our meal and we left feeling pampered, taken care of, and thoroughly content.

Friends and i got together for a brunch on the outdoor balcony. View was amazing. The man who was the host/brought us to our table was very very sweet/great. Unfortunately, Our waitress was not. She requested IDs (no biggie actually a compliment) but afterwards, I’m not sure what it was but she was very rude. Any time we asked for anything it felt like a bother. She didn’t put our champagne on ice... it sat there in the heat. I had to pour my own refills. While ordering she acted very sarcastic. Overall, I’ve been here many many times with friends, relatives, on dates, etc. and I’ve NEVER had this type of treatment and experience. This was my two friends first time coming, and afterwards i had to apologize to them and insisted this was not a normal treatment. The waitress had dirty blonde hair, but i did not get her name.

Cold and service a little slow. Would recommend offering the elevator to guests who are elderly rather than taking them up the stairs when you have an elevator available. I was parking the car when my party took my Father in, after dropping them off at the door.

The brunch menu is pretty basic but it doesn’t change the fact that the food is excellent! I will say that our fries were a little soggier than they usually are but they still had a yummy taste with the sauce. Waiter was spot on in service. DO NOT pass up the avocado toast. We just split one amongst our party of four but we’re ready to order four more!! The wait staff worked beautifully as a team and we appreciate that.
