Great Service - Not much on the menu – I thought Ralph's on the Park had a veggie menu. I was wrong. I eat meat but not often. Even the salads had bacon on them. I ordered (more like forced myself to order because I didn't want anything on the menu besides a side of asparagus) the creamcheese encrusted cobia. The fish was good AFTER I scraped the mountain of cheese off of the top. I knew when I ordered it that it was cooked with cream cheese, I just had no idea it was smothered in it. On the upside, my boyfriend said his steak was the best he'd ever had. Our waiter, Greg, was excellent. I only wish they'd bring back their veggie menu.

One of the best restaurants in New Orleans – Quite simply: go. It is worth it, under any circumstances. You have the backdrop of City Park, separated from other restaurants and any other distractions, superb food, and excellent service. I love this place, especially for a romantic dinner or rendezvous. Good wine selection. Tourists: one of the best kept secrets of mid-city.

Dissapointing....but forgiving – I'm a true New Orleanian and feel it is my duty to eat out as often as possible to support the city post Katrina. I went to Ralph's for my birthday dinner this year and found it to be dissapointing overall. The setting is fantastic. My table was drapped with a maroon ribbon to indicate a special occasion, which was nice and more subtle than a group of waiters singing to me with a sombrero. However, I imagine they have a hard time keeping trained staff post hurricane, because we had a trainee waiting on us (along with her coach). The gumbo was as bland as can be....even after emptying the salt shaker in it. The food then took over an hour to arrive and the waitress was slow to refill our drinks and we were never brought bread. The waitress finally asked us after about 45 minutes if we wanted more bread. We informed her we hadn't received any. If you're dinning at a Brennan restaraunt, one thing you expect is service and it just wasn't there. Then when the food arrived, it tasted as if it had been sitting in the kitchen for a while. I had the veal and while the flavor was quite good........it would've been better warm. Finally, the manager or hostess or whomever came over and addressed the issue. They comp'd all of our desserts. In addition to the standard birthday bread pudding, I had the strawberry panna cotta....very good. Then when we left, our car was already sitting out front at the valet desk. I assume this was another atempt to make up for the rest of the evening. I was dissapointed in the outcome, but I guess you can't be too mad. We're all trying to make the best of a bad situation.......one day at a time.

Not Veggie Anymore – This place has not reintroduced Veggie entrees since Katrina. It's a shame. Their attempt at tending to veggie palates is a plate of droopy veggies. I also miss the duck pate. However the steak tartare is delicious. The setting is still beautiful and the fare is rock solid New Orleans.

Great service, great people-watching – Before the storm, Ralph's on the Park offered a vegetarian menu, which has not reappeared post-K. The current menu, though, is an omnivore's delight. Tender, melt-in-your mouth filets, tons of fresh local seafood, playful desserts like lollipops and s'mores. Great people-watching in the main dining room and in the beautiful bar area. Worth the trip.

Vegetarian This is Not – Why is this classified under vegetarian? Please someone from citysearch read this and re-classify. My heart jumped a beat excitedly when I saw it classified as such - but there is literally one or two items on the menu that are vegetarian. Fish and Turtles are meat! Every restaurant in New Orleans would be vegetarian if fish were not considered meat....

The Brennan dining dynasty matches exceptional yet understated local flavors to a charming City Park setting. – The Scene
Billed as a restaurant "by locals for locals," this outstanding renovation of an 1860s-era City Park tavern blends comfortably upscale surroundings with historical imagery and a few modern design cues. Huge picture windows bring moss-draped oaks to a formal, white linen ambience that packs in well-turned business folk and inbound suburbanites. Three private upstairs dining rooms offer elegant settings for larger groups. As befits a Brennan's venture, service is efficient and polite.

The Food
The far-reaching menu is solid and local, if low on the flash factor: Expect exceptional variations of New Orleans classics (lump crab meat and tangy hot-sauce butter on fried green tomatoes) and signature seafood dishes (plump baked oysters with jalepeno cream and smoky bacon chunks). Meatless options include an outstanding starter of perfectly fried exotic mushrooms that mimic fried oysters in texture and taste. Flaky, tender baked drum is flawless, its flavors highlighted with subtle Bernaise and a crunchy-moist bread-crumb topping. Save room for the chocolaty, pudding-like Theobroma.
