One of the best meals we have had. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone. While not in the center of the city, the view of the city park is not to be missed.

The pacing of the service was way to fast. The entrees were served as we were still eating our appetizer. The bread was served toward the end of the meal. My steak was ordered medium well and came to the table medium rare. The menus was very limited, not what we expected for a Ralph Brennan restaurant.
Both desserts were delicious.
We expected more from a quality restaurant at this price point.

Always find Ralph’s a quintessential New Orleans experience. Outside the hustle of downtown, Ralph’s offers a sweeping view of City Park with warm hospitality. The cocktails are always spot on ranging from garden party appetiv to something that puts hair on the chest. Our server (Amber) was funny, warm and wise. She didn’t hover but was always available. She was the final star on this review for sure. Food was very good, ambience always perfect, and the experience one we always want again.

We were from out of town and received Ralph's as a recommendation from an acquaintance who lives in NOLA. We weren't disappointed. A leisurly dinner where we could talk at a normal voice but was busy enough with other customers that we didn't feel self conscious. A smaller menus but with enough selections to find a quality dish for this type of restaurant. A very good selection of wines, cocktails and aperitifs.

We had really delicious food. Emily is a fine waiter. The evening was near perfect—the only problem being a table of two couples who were extremely loud and obnoxious! Some management intervention would have been helpful.

Amber was great. Foe Gras was amazing. We wanted to have seconds and thirds. We celebrated a belated Valentine’s Day, so we were given an complimentary app. We shared their signature salad and both had a steak. The bread pudding was moist and delicious. Thank you Amber.

Went to Ralph’s for my birthday and had the Crawfish Pasta and added crab meat to the dish. Delicious! and pasta was cooked perfectly. Also had the blacken shrimp appetizer, perfection. Emily our waitress was very kind and had the the kind of upbeat attitude you hope for on any dinning occasion.

The meal was good. Having said this, the bread old, stale, mashed/crumpled, and not even warm.

Restaurants normally serve french bread. This is New Orleans. No bread would have been better. This reflects on your entire operation, as if, "we do not care".

Our first time at Ralph's on the Park, and it turned out to be the last day ever of 10 cent martinis. Good luck for us! Adelle was an outstanding server, food was great, as was the company!

I’ve been dining at Ralph’s on the Park for five years now, and the quality, service, attention to detail, and creativity have never failed to be too-notch. I plan to fine here for decades to come.

A great deal for lunch. Hard to believe that you can get a 2 course chef prepared meal for $16. A great place for a low key Birthday celebration.

This restaurant was recommended to us and quite frankly I wasn’t impressed
Not much of a selection for lunch, small portions and my broccoli had way too much sauce on it

Love eating there. But they were overbooked for Valentines Day and it ruined my experience. Was seated over 30 minutes passed my reservation time. My food was luke warm. Service was subpar. Got my bill and wasn’t even asked if we wanted dessert or coffee!? It’s a shame- but I won’t be back for a longggg time.

I’ve been to Ralph’s many times, so when my friend was in from San Francisco, it was the first place I wanted to take her for something special ~ she was very happy with the selections on the menu and she enjoyed her lunch.
My food was not as good... it was from the 16th Anniversary Lunch selections. Next time I’ll forego the ‘special’ items and stick with their regular menu.
Our server, ELLEN, was fantastic! Attentive, kind and knew the menu really well!

We were looking for a relaxing evening and a New Orleans dining experience. We had been to “Ralph’s on the Park”, a Ralph Brennan Group restaurant, for a family birthday dinner awhile ago. The menu looked entertaining and the location easy to access on a parade night, off we went from Lakeview.
Great time and service. From the crawfish topped salad to the redfish entrees, we had a fabulous meal. The almond brittle crust on the redfish was a perfect match for the poached redfish served on an almond butter paste with French green bean garnish.
The only problem was choosing a desert, they all looked unique and tempting. We went for the chocolate strawberry cake option. Very rich but not overly sweet.
A great choice and kept us out of the parade traffic madness.

Fabulous as always! Had brunch @ Ralph's Sunday with a friend. Bottomless Mimosas are always a hit🍾 Service is phenomenal, as the waitstaff is very attentive. We started with the Housemade Yogurt perfect beginning to a delicious meal. For main course we had the Crawfish Cakes not disappointed. Always a pleasure to dine @ Ralph's.
