Not impressive at all. The food was very average for the price. Greasy and lame. The service was not on par with the level of the dining experience Ralph’s on the Park intends to be. The server somewhat forgot about us - My wife and I wanted to get a fresh set of silverware to no avail. We ended up grabbing two sets from a neighboring table. Totally unacceptable. Cocktails were watery and not craft at all.

Thanksgiving lunch was fantastic. Kevin and his staff are so professional and gracious.
The service was Great, Thanks to Stacy and her team.
We would have liked the food to be a little warmer, but we certainly understand with the volume of customers.

The mushrooms were so salty you should learn not to salt things and let people add the salt if they need them with the men Checo cheese is a necessary to add sauce item chef and I understand that we get carried away but I had to send back my omelette l

We both had steak and eggs husarde. The steak tasted like it might be buffalo, i.e., weird, and the eggs husarde not as good as we had at Brennans. But the server was terrific.

I was completely underwhelmed by the Ralph's on the Park experience. I expected something more unique, but the food, ambience, etc seem very generic. The food specifically seemed mass produced and not very original. I could tell our entrees spent a bit of time under the warmer light. The Brown Butter Glazed Fish was nothing more than a pan fried fish with very little other taste, perhaps the sauce was left off? My wife's scallop dish was tasteless and bland. The whole experience came across as the restaurant is over taxed on the amount of business and thus has simplified their approach to try and accommodate the volume. This is far cry to some the more original, intimate restaurants across the New Orleans dining scene.

Lovely, comfortable environment, good appetizers (duck confit-stuffed mini peppers especially), but mains for all five of us (blackened fish, sautéed scallops) were disappointingly bland.

Been there several times. Always very good food and service! Lately the menu has been a little limited
But that is understandable due to covid and hurricane difficulties. A very inviting and comfortable ambiance conducive to an enjoyable experience.
