Majestic City Park oaks outside and beautiful murals inside make Ralph's a special place to eat and our go-to for occasions like my wife's birthday. The special August menu offer of three appetizers and a glass of quality wine for $33 is impossible to beat especially since the dishes are excellent and ample size. We had Shrimp and Grits, Soft-shell... More

Had a business lunch at the restaurant. Nice place and very friendly staff. I like it being located right by City Park. I had a blackened red fish dinner that was ok. It didn't blow me away. I have had better at other local restaurants. I would probably return, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

Sitting in this very relaxed and comfortable room, looking at City Park across the street, a martini to hand, I have the feeling of stopping by for a meal at my favorite club. Looks like out of town visitors don't often make it here, which is a shame. The summer special, in particular, is an outstanding and tasty value: three... More

The lamb ribs are so fatty, little meat to eat. Don't think of eating a traditional meal, think of eating a chef inspired meal. It is different but not the "WOW" that I look for in a $100.00 meal. Service was fabulous. The view is excellent. This was the first time eating at Ralphs. Turtle soup was wonderful. Very tasty.

The combination of the service, the food, the setting and the location make this one of the best restaurants in the city. My wife had my birthday surprise party for me there in the upstairs rooms and it was very memorable. We take advantage of the Summer specials for lunch with 10 cent martinis and a couple of appetizers. We... More

Sitting at a table next to windows overlooking the fountain and trees dripping with Spanish Moss, we took advantage of the " 3 small plates and a glass of wine" dinner. Each course chosen by the four of us was wonderfully prepared and plated. The food was delicious and the server we had was excellent. And to add to this,... More

Ralph's is well worth a cab ride from the downtown area. The food was incredible and the service was also excellent. Loved the atmosphere here as well. It is right across from City Park, which is a really pretty backdrop for dinner.

beautiful restaurant across from City Park. Great local food. I did not care for the tuna appetizer my first visit, but many great choices of fish, steak, and New Orleans favorites. Valet parking is also much appreciated

We enjoyed the view from the veranda and a delicious meal served by very efficient staff. It was first class all the way from the setting to the service to the food. The meal was delicious and plated beautifully. We were not rushed. It was fun for all.
