Had fish special (crab crusted grouper if I can recall) & it was delicious. One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Excellent service, appetizers were wonderful. It had been several months, but I’m very glad I went again.

Should have requested main dining floor. Our table was upstairs in a carpeted dining room, which felt quite generic.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Ralphs, which has formerly been one of my favorite places. When we arrived we were not greeted. After several attempts on the part of miscellaneous waiters to check us in, we were shunted off to the side and left for 15 minutes, told that our "table upstairs was not ready yet." When we got upstairs, our guest had been sitting at our table, ready and waiting for us for 15 minutes! We were very embarrassed, since he is from Europe and we were taking him to Ralph's to show him how well done the dining experience was. Then half way through our dinner (at 8:30) the waitresses started rolling huge table tops through the room by our table and setting up rounds for unknown future parties (certainly not for the night we were there, since we left at 9:30 and no one used them). It was like eating at the Convention Center. Very disconcerting and poor dining experience. The food wasn't bad, but how could we enjoy it in this setting?

There were guests at a large table FaceTiming and they were extremely rude it was so loud. The waitress for that table had to tell them 2 times to stop! Perhaps a phone policy needs to be put in place. It wasn’t just us other guests were upset too

We keep going back and will be going back soon. We prefer to be seated indoors, but have had the takeout on a number of occasions and it was always perfect. Need I say more. The level of service is off the charts. So professional and knowledgeable. Very creative menu. Not the same things you find everywhere else.

The service was fast and all staff were pleasant. They were patient and took the time to explain the menu. The food was served hot, pleasing to the eye and everything was delicious. Our party had the burger, crab salad, turtle soup, duck gumbo, stone grits, homemade biscuits and truffle fries. We indulged in bread pudding after. All were simply amazing. Great experience

Food was mediocre at best. Plates were not prewarmed and salad added to duck caused duck to cool, rapidly. Trout was a bit grainy making me think it was past it's due date. Shrimp tempura was the best part of the meal. Emily was a superb waitress, but had too many tables, so less attentive than some places we visited, last week.

a beautiful restaurant but with tables available we were seated in a banquet room with no view and a loud family. Waiter seemed stressed I think because he had to pick us up out of his designated section. Food: portions were small but delicious.

I went during the Coolinary special month, lunch was 2 courses for $22. I had the soup of the day, which was a creamy potato with cheese and leeks. Rich, thick but utterly smooth soup, perfect for a fall day. It was accompanied by a small loaf of bread and some soft butter pressed into fancy disks.
Course 2, I chose the Waygu cheeseburger. It was cooked to order, fully dressed, and quite good. Overall, quite an enjoyable outing.

We sat on the balcony for a supposed cool-linary experience and the bill came and we were all shocked. It was outrageous. Plus my friends had just visited Ralphs and they said the same dishes were three times the size and half the price that they were at our meal. The waitress obviously forgot us abd the service was horrible. So much for coolinary at Ralph’s

Food was delicious, small portions. Ambiance was underwhelming and lacking. Very beige upstairs. Wish the host or server would have read the note that it was a special occasion and acknowledged it. That would have been nice. Also wish we would have been asked if we would have liked to be seated on the gallery. I'd recommend the food, but it wasn't as special as I would have hoped.

As A Senior , I Was worried about social distancing within the restaurant. The person who took a reservation took my concern seriously. Our table was upstairs in a room of four tables. For most of our dinner, only two of the tables were occupied.
And our waiter Ellen was very accommodating. She would give recommendations both in food and in cocktails. The food was exceptional.
