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.

We had made a reservation & enjoyed the coolinary menu that was offered. It was our first time there & we really enjoyed the whole experience, i just wish we would have been placed in the main dining or upstairs. We were seated by the bar & the restrooms.
We will be back to try there evening menu.

We are locals, and this is a top notch spot! Absolutely perfect in every fashion! You will NOT be disappointed. Saturday day date brunch for my wife and I was flawless and the service was impeccable. Our server was Emily, she was kind and courteous. Even with Covid mandates this restaurant will do everything to make you feel like things are normal!

Literally across from the park (awesome photos from balcony of Ralph's) highly highly recommended! Turtle soup was perfection, and Avocado Toast with lump crab was a 5 star treat! Thank you to Kevin for allowing us to change reservations after we ran into car trouble!

We will be back again!!

Delicious brunch! Vicky, our server was awesome! Very sweet and helpful with any questions we had!

The crabcakes and avocado toast was a little smaller than we had expected for an appetizer, but other than that, it was a fabulous meal!

Food was very good, but my complaint is that the turtle soup and the sword fish was only warm. I like my soup and the main course hot - not warm. Had it been hot it would
have been incredible.

Also, we were only presented with the regular menu, instead of being given both menus - or asked which we were interested in.

As always, the ambience was perfect.

The food was very good as was the service. Katy was very good.
However, we had a table with no table cloth. This is considered a fine dining restaurant and to serve us on a wooded table with no table cloth was totally improper. Also, there was obviously no adherence to the advertised dress code. There were people eating dinner in shorts and blue jeans, hardly "smart casual", while I, and other gentlemen were in jackets. This experience was more like eating at a neighborhood restaurant where one would expect such things at half the price.
I will probably return to Ralph's, but not in the foreseeable future.

This is the first time in over 10 years that I visited this restaurant and it did not disappoint. One of the major draws is the Crab Fete, consisting of a three course meal featuring LA blue crab lump crab meat. The first course was a she crab soup, which was cooked to perfection with a rich and creamy stock. The second course was the crab salad, served with slivered carrots and cucumbers. The third course was crab and scallops, consisting of three scallops topped with lump crab meat, served with rice. All three courses consisted of adequate portions and were tasty and filling.
Another major draw is the Coolinary menu (seasonal only), which included three courses: the City Park salad, the Strip steak and cheesecake for dessert.
The service was exceptional and the server could not have been more attentive to our needs. Definitely will be returning to this fine establishment.

They take your temperature at the door. The whole staff was safety conscious, in a positive, polite, respectful way. I am going to highly recommend Ralph’s to my friends that are concerned about eating at restaurant during Covid. Not to mention the food was delicious too.
