    Ralph's is a long-time favorite of ours. Dined there with another couple on a weeknight. Easy to get a table on a lighter traffic night. Had Turtle soup and the brown butter fish, then pumpkin cheesecake. It was delicious.

    Beautiful setting in a historic building with white tablecloths and top notch service that is perfect combination of friendly and competent. The salad and appetizers were outstanding. We especially loved the tempura shrimp. The blackened redfish entree was excellent as well. The only real disappointment was the filet, which we ordered rare. It arrived closer to medium. We didn't complain because everything else was delicious, but at the end I mentioned it to our server. He explained that the filet is prepared sous vide. If that makes it impossible to prepare a rare steak, I think the guests should be advised that when they order the filet. Let them decide. Overall, we loved Ralph's on the Park and will definitely be back. But we won't order the steak!

    We had great service, a relaxing environment, and superior food quality and preparation on our date. A very nice experience. Between 2 people, we had 4 drinks, an appetizer, 2 salads, 2 entrees, and a desert, and spent about 220, which included a deservingly generous tip. A date well enjoyed.

    Enjoyed dinner on New Years Day and enjoyed the experience. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable and the food was excellent. I enjoyed the brown butter fish and my husband had the special fish. The staff gave us the back story of the mural on the wall and it was fascinating and fun. I would recommend Ralph’s on the Park for any occasion.

    The service was great zero complaints there. As far as the food goes, it does seem high for what you get. Portion sizes aren’t huge. I also honestly had an issue with the menu, the crab and avocado toast is served on plain bread, not toasted. The monte cristo is more a french toast ham sandwich than anything. Super friendly people but we wouldn’t go back.

    To be fair, New Year's Eve is not an occasion to judge any restaurant. Ralph's is always a lovely dining experience, and the food is reliably very good. New Year's Eve strained the staff, strained the kitchen (our steak had to be sent back to be cooked through to a degree safe to eat). But the attitude of the entire wait staff was extraordinarily gracious, and the beautiful setting was a reminder of how sensuous dining in New Orleans can be.

    Holiday Milk Punch cocktail was very tasty. Loved the Truffle Fries and Shrimp Skully. The three course NYE menu was fantastic. Ribeye cooked to our liking and although the satsuma icebox pie seemed weird on paper, it was delicious! Overall a fantastic meal. Was a little loud, in terms of atmosphere, but was busy being NYE, so understandable. Will definitely be back!

    The kids meals were uninspired and both the appetizer and the lemon on the lemonade came garnished with a hair. My nephew was unimpressed. It was cold, noisy and the menu was not terribly interesting this visit. It was an okay meal but not up to Ralph’s usual standards.
