    I wasn't wild about my fish because it was thick but the ambience, and other food was wonderful. The service was also good too. Restaurant is quite loud though because it was very crowded.

    The turtle soup, pear/spinach salad and warm pear galette were delicious. The french toast was very dry and the menu stated is was "stuffed" with a strawberry and cream cheese filling but was actually a thin, sour cream cheese spread. Extra Steen's syrup helped moisten it and improved the taste. We will not order it again.

    My rice was raw. That's truly unacceptable. Service was nice but it was frustrating getting multiple texts being on time asking if I was going to show up. Also the website had the lobster special listed but in person it was no longer available you guys need to do a better job keeping your menus online up to date.

Our waiter was friendly and helpful explaining the seafood entrees, which were excellent. We closed the dining room but never felt rushed. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

    Ralph’s on the Park served as a treating outing for Sunday lunch. The 3-course meal looked like more than we could eat, but the portions were modest (but not small), and they gave us a chance to sample a range of dishes. The service was impeccable, and the experience reminded us what dining at an old-line New Orleans restaurant should be like.

    Overall a nice restaurant. I would stay away from any of the specialty menus, especially the 3 course lobster dinner. It was not great and not worth the money. Regular menu has great apps, and the desserts are very good, too. Good specialty cocktails. Can be crowded and kind of noisy. Service is good and view of the park excellent. Security person outside greatly appreciated.
