    Service was excellent. Music was too loud and not appropriate for this caliber of restaurant. Food was average. I have had many good meals here over the years, I will make another reservation soon to see if this experience was a "NEW NORMAL", or simply not their best day.

    We love going to Ralph's - and we go often. We have a favorite server and the overall dining experience - but - the menu is static. I wish they would make changes to the menu more often or give us a larger menu.

    The corn/crab bisque is yummy. The salad with goat cheese and pecans was excellent, and the Shrimp Skelly was just spicy enough. I loved the pumpkin cheesecake.

    Food and ambiance are nice. Service was attentive but very slow. Main complaint is how the checks are handled. They now bring you the portable card readers to the table and automatically ask you to accept tip. Yes, you can change it but it’s uncomfortable, and frankly rude. It also doesn’t make sense because the amount that’s entered includes the tax. I’ve always been a generous tipper but it is rude to calculate tip amount on the tax which is substantial in New Orleans.

    The three appetizers and a glass of wine experience was wonderful! We had the turtle soup, City Park salad, Crabmeat Bruschetta, Shrimp Skully, Truffle fries, and Duck Confit roasted peppers, and all were delicious. We added cocktails as well as coffee and dessert. The apple pie bread pudding was especially delicious. As always, service was excellent! Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish!

    This was a lovely dining experience. The restaurant is wildly accommodating. They helped me move my reservation time on a night when they were booked. They were understanding when my party went from 4 to 6 (I called ahead to inform them). They were welcoming and personable. The hosts/managers seemed to care about their restaurant and their guests. The food was delicious. A lot of it did not really come out of the kitchen hot, I think because they were busy maybe - and I think that's my one critique - but it was delicious. They have a really good ribeye.

    My mom and I had a wonderful brunch at Ralph’s! I took her for her birthday and they made it super special. The menu said “Happy Birthday” at the top and they gave her a yummy dessert to celebrate. Our brunch was SO GOOD! I had the Monte Cristo sandwich and my mom had the crab Benedict. Both were delicious! Our server was so attentive and kind. Overall, 10/10! We will definitely be back!

    Service was excellent. Atmosphere was white table cloth with view of moss trees at city park directly across the street. My Food entree (Blackened red fish) was outstanding, but came with fingerling potatoes...not the best....and green beans---about 5 or 6 (green beans are plentiful and not expensive) that were okay. My appetizer...shrimp and grits... was the absolute worst I've ever had. The 2 huge shrimp tasted fishy and the grits at bottom of the bowl were not visible and not good ( 2 tablespoons provided). (Grits are cheap; we should have at least enough to cover the bottom of the bowl). Dessert was praline bread pudding and left a lot to be desired. A small bell shaped scoop of bread pudding with strong cinnamon/nutmeg flavor. No praline taste at all. You are in NEW ORLEANS..... your bread pudding should be delicious and freshly prepared. The other 3 people with me shared my sentiments ----some of the food was good and some of food was just okay. Service was excellent and nice ambience. I don't think I will be back. Bonnie

    I have been wanting to go here for a long time. I hear about how great it is for brunch. So disappointing! The menu is very limited in what it has to offer. The food is very good but not exceptional. I do like the ambience of the place. It is a very typical New Orleans place. I would not really recommend if you are looking for a good brunch. Go to Commanders or Brennans

    I had not been to Ralph's in years and was blown away by the food and drinks. Tito in the bar is fantastic (especially the Blood Orange Margarita's). Food is exceptional and not pricey for what you get. Brunch at Ralph's will be a regular stop on every visit to New Orleans. Plus you are across the street from City Park which is a beautiful drive through the majestic Live Oak trees.
