The food was very good. Service was slow, but it IS Mother’s Day weekend. I think that’s expected.
My Gulf fish with brown butter sauce was great!

My partner and I love Ralphs
It's a spot we often dine at, whether the occasion be special or not. Tonight, was great as usual. Unfortunately our server, Katie, rude and unattentive.

One of the best dishes we have ever had ,anywhere... ever!! The crawfish ettoffee was a rich decadent condensed version of its self to top all others. Thick herbaceous base topped with an inexplicable mind blowing crunch. I hadn’t a clue what I was experiencing? Sheer and utter culinary bliss!!!!

Birthday dinner at Ralph’s did not disappoint! Wonderful service, even a special table setting and menu. Food was delicious- crab crusted fish and steak. And a birthday dessert surprise. Ralph’s went above and beyond to make our night special.

Problematic start to dinner followed by good response of the team to ameliorate the poor initial impression, then followed by an excellent meal.
Had 7:45 dinner reservation. Arrived 7:15 for drinks in the bar. Checked in with hostess; went to the bar. At 8:00+ I strolled over to the check-in area to inquire on status of seating. Was told another few minutes. No issue as were were just finishing up drinks and enjoying the bar. Another 5-7 minutes hostess came to seat us but asked us if we wanted outside (up on the balcony) or in the main dining area. Her inquiry leads me to believe that she is providing an option- i.e. that both options are available at the time- we had not been asked about any seating preference on check-in. But when I replied main dining room she replied that she would need to check on availability. We were not interested in eating outside on a steamy night and generally by ourselves and told her that. She came back soon to say it would be a few more minutes and then left. Came back in 5 minutes (at this point 35-40 minutes past the reservation time) and took us to a large round table that had no tablecloth and no silverware on it. Since there were only 3 of us told her this table was way too large for our small party and was not acceptable. She told us this table was not supposed to have a tablecloth but every other table did. Told the seater the table was not acceptable and we would go back to the bar for another drink to wait. Maitre'D came over- had the same conversation with him. They both seemed perplexed by the conversation and why I did not want the table, which was perplexing to me as I was only indicating that we would go back to the bar and have a another drink to wait for a fourtop, although at this point we were 50 minutes past our reservation time.
Another 7 mins and we were seated.
They kindly comped our 2nd round of drinks, along with 2 appetizers (w/o our asking).
I will give kudos to say he entire meal was excellent.

The staff went above and beyond - I booked thru OpenTable, and just made a note that it was for our anniversary. The staff had a special table set, and waiting for us at least 20 minutes ahead of our reservation time (which was great since we showed up earlier than planned). They even had custom menus printed with Happy Anniversary on them. The food was excellent, and our server was wonderful. 10/10, will definitely be back!

Absolutely fabulous dinner! Love how easy it is to park, too! Delightful waitstaff, perfectly prepared meal and the bread was out of this world. Only one suggestion… Please hold the anchovy-soaked green olives for dirty martinis. Had to send back first one because it tasted so much like anchovies. Second one was a bit better, but taste still existed. Tried an olive & it was the culprit. Not all people like anchovies, so would like to be warned when placing a drink order.
Other than that, perfect in every way! We’re now regulars!

The service was not up to pre-covid standards. Also the table next to me had 6 kids that were not disciplined by theie mothers. The kids were allowed to run around the restaurant.

First time to Ralph’s and won’t be the last. One of the best meals we have ever had in New Orleans. Sitting on the balcony and overlooking City Park was divine. The cocktails (get the Sazerac) were out of this world. Can’t wait to go back.

The attention to details when a request was made. I sent a request through Opentable for a birthday candle and desert and they went above and beyond.

The table had a ribbon and the menu is labeled for a birthday occasion, even though you know those items are simple to do they are prepared for it. The restaurant has thought of little things that makes you feel special.

Service, ambience, specialty cocktails were excellent. I highly recommend the iced coffee rum cocktail. It was tasty and nicely balanced.

However, I would not recommend this restaurant because the food was underwhelming at best.

I hate leaving negative reviews - but It was disappointing.

The four of us dined outside on the 2nd story balcony overlooking City Park and enjoying a 3 course crawfish meal. Everything was delicious and so carefully rendered. Of special note are the house signature fennel and crimson raisin biscuits! It was a very special evening of good food, good views and great service!
