A Worthy Spot for a Celebration

Very disappointed with Ralph's. The lamb and steak dishes were all overcooked and dry. I ordered the pork belly and it was tough, though every pork belly I have ever had was always tender. Service was not great as all of us ran out of water and no one refilled our glasses. The only thing I liked about Ralph's was... More

We dined here the first time by recommendation of many. The restaurant is beautiful. Beautiful decor and beautiful view of City Park. We ordered and split a bottle red wine. Was very good and reasonably priced. The waitress was very attentive. She took our appetizer orders. We each had a cup of the turtle soup. Was very good; lots of... More

Went for lunch following a recommendation on a recent trip to Nola. Everything was perfect from the decor and surroundings to the food and friendly service. My pan fried des allemands catfish was just delicious, full of flavour and beautifully presented. Ralphs is known for it's gulf bbq shrimp. My husband had this and like me loved his main course....

Great place to hold a private event! Service was very attentive, food was so amazing (boudin balls were my favorite), and the ambiance felt both fancy and relaxed.

While visiting the city and my daughters for my birthday they suggested Ralph's on the Park for my birthday dinner. This was the most enjoyable fine dining experience I have ever had. The staff was exceptional and the food was better than I could have imagined. From starters to dessert, it was perfection. I highly recommened this restaurant to anyone... More

We arrived for our 7:30 reservation after Jazz Fest excited about our dinner. What began as a nice evening with great expectations slowly turned into a nightmare. We didn't mind when our salads took about 45 minutes to arrive, but after waiting 2 hours for entrees we became concerned. The waiter NEVER informed us what was going on and why... More

A very nice restaurant in a lovely area. With reservations, we were seated immediately and ordered drinks. Our server, Fifi, noticed they weren't made as we had asked so she had them remake them. We chose a delicious beet salad with feta goat cheese, arugula and roasted pecans to begin with, followed by appetizer sized Tuna 2 way, Yaka Mein... More

Leave the beaten tourist path (the French Quarter) & head over to mid city for lunch or dinner at Ralph's on the Park, across from City Park. It's got a classic, understated elegance with an old New Orleans feel, without being pretentious. The food is fantastic!!! From the truffle fries to the BBQ shrimp to the chocolate bar dessert.

Ralph's was recommended to us by family in Los Angeles. It was a great choice. We had reservations, and we were seated immediately. The food was excellent and our server was superb - attentive, but not intrusive. The restaurant is comfortable and it's in an attractive location. The whole experience was very enjoyable.
