    Made sure to arrive early so the four of us could enjoy a cocktail at the bar. Appetizers, soups and salads and fish entries were all excellent! Another great time at Ralph’s. We keep going back and have yet to be disappointed. If you haven’t gone - you need to.

    This is one of our favorites, especially when our adult children are back in town. Fine dining but without too much formality. We were the last seating for Thanksgiving Day. I think the staff had already checked out, unusual for this restaurant. It reminds me to cook at home on holidays and let restaurant staff do the same.

    CONTINUATION I ordered the Paneed Veal w/Crabmeat, which came with cauliflower gratin. I am certain there was considerably less crabmeat than last year for I believe the identical entree. The crab was placed on top of the cauliflower, so the white crab on top of the cauliflower gave the initial impression of quite a lot of crabmeat, but upon eating the crab that was not the case. My wife ordered the Speckled Trout Amandine. In years past, it was always a crusted true filet with almonds on top. This year, it was a “chunk” of fish with the almonds underneath. I ordered an Irish coffee to be served with dessert. The waitress informed me it would only include coffee and the Irish whiskey. Huh? Since when is that an Irish coffee? It sure was not the same drink as years past. I fully understand there are different recipes for an Irish coffee, but in a restaurant with the reputation of Ralph’s the two ingredient drink is totally unacceptable. As I mentioned at the beginning, we most likely will go somewhere else next Thanksgiving.

    Went to Ralph's for Thanksgiving dinner. It was an excellent experience. Unlike is often the case on holidays, the restaurant was not overbooked/overcrowded. The set menu had lots of choices so everybody in my party could order to their taste. The food was excellent. And the price for a holiday dinner was reasonable.

    The experience was terrific. We have been there numerous times over the years and it is exceptional. Our server Adele was incredible. Being in the industry i can recognize amazing service and true hospitality. She was it. It seemed like the menu was shorter than I remember on entrees, but those they had were excellent.

    I love Ralph's on the Park--the food is exceptional, the service, impeccable and the view of City Park is magical! My niece came to New Orleans for the first time and I wanted to treat her to a wonderful lunch. She particularly loved the Strawberry Cream Soda, my favorite Shrimp Skully and the Blackened Red Fish--historic! It is my go-to location to impress friends and family and they never disappoint.

    Prices went up (most likely because of inflation) but portion sizes were smaller. I’m fine with higher cost of food but why also serve smaller portions? Not sure if I’ll be back soon.

    Ralph's never disappoints - wonderful, locally sourced food. Creative Chef featuring New Orleans/Creole fine dishes. It was a very busy evening but our waitstaff did her best to serve our table with a smile and helpful suggestions. The browned butter Gulf fish was absolutely delicious as was the chocolate robert cake for dessert.

    It's a nice experience. The service personnel are well trained and helpful. The menu could benefit from a little more variety and imagination and is just "okay" and the food, while good, wasn't anything special. Certainly not a special occasion place but for a night out for a decent meal, it was fine.

    I have a standing dinner date with a friend, and we always go to Ralph's. The food is always good, the servers are always friendly and helpful, and the ambiance is always nice. It's easy to park and in a convenient neighborhood. I go to restaurants all over town, but when I want a place that is both elegant and reliable, and where I, as a woman arriving alone, feel safe, I go to Ralph's. It never disappoints.
