    The food wait was really long and when it arrived it was cold. Our server would pass by occasionally to ask if everything was okay but never offered to refill drinks or bring bread to the table, nothing more than a casual check-in. The portions were small, not cooked to order, and tasted bland. I was quite disappointed considering the price we paid. The table next to us was very loud and not once were they asked to calm down. It ruined the experience for all out celebrating their mothers and wives.

    I’ve been here before and love the food but was VERY disappointed with the Mothers Day menu, the food was WAY overpriced for what it was. A salad, entree and dessert for $75 or $83 for the filet is ridiculous. And it was very small portions. I weigh 100lbs and usually never finish a meal at a restaurant, I ate everything and even ordered an additional appetizer. I don’t understand how the meal was a $75 value, a dessert and salad are around $10-$15 each, those entrees were NO WAY worth $45-$55. I feel like this was price gouging for a holiday you know people are going out. This was my first Mother’s Day as a mother, highly disappointing.

    I ordered a blacken chicken salad. Terrible. The chicken was not cooked thoroughly and it was not seasoned well. Second time I've had lunch there in a few months and both times were disappointing.

    This is about my fifth time eating here and I have had mixed experiences. It was so loud, I couldn't hear anyone at my table. The food and drinks were pretty good but my daughter asked for medium rare steak and they brought her a rare steak. It took too long to get the waitress so she ate it. I alerted them that it was my twin's birthday dinner and they did nothing to make that special. We decided to go somewhere else for dessert. I rate it a very mediocre experience.

Our waiter Jeff was very attentive and all of the staff were friendly and gracious. This restaurant will definitely be in our New Orleans restaurant rotations from now on!

    Rachel, our server, was excellent! Our food, speckled trout with fingerling potatoes, green beans and Vidalia onions, was EXCELLENT! And, the City Park salad is always delicious. The restaurant was particularly LOUD last night. Last night of first weekend of JazzFest and likely the party of TEN young adults at a nearby table were the genesis of that!!! We’ll be back again next year, though!!

    Our server Adele was great, but I feel as though she did not have any support from either a back waiter, busser, runner, etc. I observed the manager assisting to some degree but it looked like they potentially oversat her section as I did not have an opportunity to purchase another bottle of wine with our meal.

    Food was fine. We ordered a bottle of wine, but it didn’t arrive to our table until we had completed 50% of our meal. We cancelled the wine. The location is nice. After dinner we walked across the street into City Park. 75% of diners were senior citizens. It kind of reminded me of a dated country club. While the food was fine, it was over-priced.

    We dine often at Ralphs on the Park and love it. The service and the setting could not be better. I ordered the shrimp salad for Sunday brunch and was disappointed that they were only three shrimp on the salad. I felt that it was a poor value. I have ordered other things for brunch in the past that I felt much better value and more filling. Everything else was outstanding.

    We dined with another couple on Saturday night. We were seated near a table of about 12 people that were so incredibly loud that we couldn't even hear our server. I am not talking about a little loud - they literally spoke in screams and all at once. The entire dining room full of people were not as loud as this table. Everyone around us asked to move, but were told there were no tables available. We asked to be moved, as well and were told the same, but the server did come back and say they could move us. We asked the manager to address the loud table and was told they were "celebrating" - well, so was everyone else (without the excess noise level). We felt bad for the servers, as at least 4 tables complained to them about the excess noise - one the minute they sat down. Management did finally address the situation and the table did quite down. Our food was good, however the sauce on the fish could have been warmer. The atmosphere is lovely there, as well. Truthfully, there are way too many great restaurants in NOLA to have to deal with others ruining an entire dining room full of people's experiences and with it not immediately being address BEFORE customers bring it to management's attention. Hopefully, this doesn't happen all the time.

    Came here with my partner and best friends and everything was amazing! We really went all out and shared a good chunk of the menu - enjoyed the shrimp skully, fried oysters, shrimp lettuce wraps, grilled Romaine salad. For main courses we enjoyed the redfish on the halfshell (the standout) redfish with étouffée, bbq shrimp, and the brown butter glazed fish. Sauces were all spot on. Everything cooked perfectly. The service was as wonderful as the food. Looking forward to returning.
