    Ralph’s is always good. It is a lovely restaurant. Our server was EXCELLENT. Nicole has been at Ralph’s for a few years and it is always good to be seated at her station. She is attentive, low key and knowledgeable. The food was overall good but the shrimp Creole was very bland. We will always return.

    Lovely, relaxing, pretty restaurant. Excellent service & restaurant accommodated my request for corner table. Food was well prepared & presentation excellent. There is a $25 two course lunch special, but for a cocktail, entree, & dessert, it was $50 per person before tip. Need to bring back Valet Parking!

    My husband and I received a gift card for Christmas and we decided to use it for lunch at Ralph’s at the Park. It t’was a lovely day, slightly overcast with a gentle breeze. Soup seemed a good choice and I order soup of the day which was a potato leek bowl. Then U visualized a good size Cobb salad. While the soup was pleasant, the salad was puny with teeny blue cheese scraps and floppy greens. I wondered if Ralph would like it.

    Shockingly bad. I had been to Ralph’s previously one time and I loved it, in fact in my reviews, I raved about it, This time, however, was exceptionally bad. The service was terrible, we waited for water and our drinks and in between drinks—not once did we have continuity of service. I had to hail the waitress on several occasions. Another waitress was picking up a chair and moving it across the dining room as I stood to go to the bathroom and even through her mask, her impatience and gruff rudeness were obvious. The food choices were not only extremely limited, but the steaks that came to the table were dry and bland, even though ordered MR. What a disgraceful place! Their prices were precious for shameful service and food. I love this family’s restaurants. We frequent them in Houston and in NO often, but at this rate, I cannot imagine returning. What’s worse - we took our Houston family to enjoy what we expected to be a next level cuisine experience. It embarrassed us and it poorly represented NO.
