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.
Was my first time at Ralph's and loved the food and service. Will definitely go again!
Wonderful brunch with my daughter and her future mother-in-law. Exceptional service from David!
Glad they are back. Wish the bar was open. xxxxxxx
food portions were small,,service was slow might try again
Always a great experience. We particularly like the tomato basil soup they had. Too bad we'll never know when it's the soup of the day! Would enjoy seeing it as part of the regular menu
Had a wonderful Saturday early afternoon brunch. We ate upstairs with balcony open and it was delightful!
Crab Fete was a delight. The soup was rich and creamy, the salad tangy and light and the crab and scallops simply divine.
Great dining experience! Every aspect of the meal and every course was excellent!
Service was outstanding
My family loves Ralph's! We love the atmosphere, the view, the service and of course the food. We celebrate a lot of special occasions there and they make the night memorable!
The food and service were spectacular. Our waitress made great suggestions. We couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant dining experience.
Excellent meals and great service... need I say more!
Great date night, during a pandemic. Masks were required. Tables were well spaced out from each other. Dinner was wonderful, crab encrusted fish special and grilled red snapper. Service was on point. Plan to return soon.
The seafood dishes are always the best choice. We had the crab soup which was terrific as was the salad The main course was not as good - crab and scallops( sauce bland.
Ralph's on the Park is one of our most favorite locations to dine. Food is excellent, service incredible, and we always get our money's worth of value.
Amber, our waitress, was not as good as those who have waited on us in the past. It took a long time in the beginning, had to ask for bread and she forgot one person’s drink. Not bad but not as good as usual.
Love this place. Always good and with great service. The waitress was very attentive to our needs. The food was fresh tasty and delicious. Clean establishment and easy parking. Always a winner to me!
We decided to dine restaurant week Oct 5-11. Picked a couple of different places to go and this was by far the best experience, food and desert. The decaf coffee was excellent. The menu gave us a set choice and it was perfect. Everyone got to have what they wanted. It was a Tuesday night so very quiet. If you haven't tried this restaurant, please go an order the sword fish. Delicious!
Balcony dining is a must! Request it! Cool with a great view of City Park. Martinis (dirty with extra olives) were so good.
Turtle soup was rich, not too spicy. Crab covered swordfish tender, but not soft. Very filling, not too bready.
It was a birthday celebration, so my husband received a little dessert treat. What a delightful evening!
Always a pleasure to eat at Ralph's on the Patk.
Food is always "spot-on".
Drinks are yummy.
Tables were spaced to create social distancing. Food, service, atmosphere were all great. Always enjoy a meal at Ralph’s on the Park. It was our 18th anniversary and we greatly enjoyed our brunch.
Great! My boyfriend and I wanted a different spot for brunch and Ralph’s was amazing. Love the food and the ambiance of the place.
Never lets me down. I am always surprised at how this restaurant upholds such consistency in food quality and service. Keeps me coming back for more.
Food and service were wonderful
Great evening, dinner on the balcony
Excellent social distancing, cleanliness, food and service
Wonderful Friday lunch on balcony - delicious food along with perfect weather- view of park is special.
We have been to Ralph's on the Park many times in the past, but this was our first visit to a restaurant since the COVID-19 epidemic started here in New Orleans in March. We had a fabulous dinner, with wonderful food and drink, very helpful, friendly and courteous staff, who also reminded us of the recommendations and rule about wearing masks until you eat and/or drink. The spacing of the tables was impressive. In short, it was a fabulous experience!
Overall, it was a lovely experience. Food was excellent as was the service and ambiance.
Everything was just as expected, food was delicious. Restaurant was quiet and the atmosphere by the park was absolutely magnificent. I can't wait to return.
All was fine except that the she crab soup was exceedingly salty. Our server was superb
The restaurant has adapted to the COVID19 social distancing requirements, I was comfortable with that, however, it was ❄FREEZING❄ cold upstairs. I didnt get dessert because I couldnt stand the COLD AIR. A table across from me requested to relocate outside, on the balcony. Someone requested to turn the air down/off & they did... for a while.
Great staff! The menu is smaller. Probably like everything else during COVID-19.....hard to stock everything? But the ambiance was wonderful. Still the old world feel of an elegant New Orleans dining experience.
The food and service were impeccable! My husband loved the Crab Fete!
Wonderful food and great service
To celebrate a birthday with old friends, Ralph's is the perfect venue, even on a rainy night. Parking even with no valet was easy. Once seated, it was as comfortable as always and the food always is the star of the show. Our Oyster appetizer was a new wrinkle but outstanding, the Turtle soup is the New Orleans Gold Standard. especially when the hot bread flows out before it. Our steaks and fish were perfect and the service was at all times during the meal first class. Singing Happy Birthday with a whole restaurant accompanying us is real New Orleans.
Can't wait to go back during Celebration in the Oaks to enjoy the food and City Park lights. But I probably won't hold out that long. Their lunch is always the perfect way to do business or just meet an old friend.
