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.

Crab Fete was a delight. The soup was rich and creamy, the salad tangy and light and the crab and scallops simply divine.

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.

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.

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!

Highly recommend!!

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!

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.

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.
