Gumbo tasted like the roux was burned. Catfish sandwich was dry and very little catfish. Bloody Mary was good and shrimp and grits were tasty. Our group was not happy.

Just the location by itself will attract me to come here again. Right across the gates of the City Park, old fashioned two story New Orleans home style in the midst of this quiet residential neighborhood is just plum. I had the Redfish, 3 kinds...More

We have been to Ralph's (part of the Brennan family)many times and it's almost ludicrous to list a review. But for non-locals or those who have never had the opportunity, there are few restaurants that I ever give such high recommendations. From the greeting until...More

We walked in and they had menu printed with congratulations Melissa which we could bring home and the food was phenomenal. We tried almost all the appetizers. The entrees were good and the dessert was fabulous.

Lakeview extends inland from the shores of Lake
Pontchartrain with much of the area reserved for
family-friendly City Park. Home to the New Orleans
Museum of Art, the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, Carousel
Gardens Amusement Park, and the city’s own lush
Botanical Gardens, City Park is a New Orleans gem and
the perfect spot for outdoor fun with as much of a mix
of culture and/or amusement as you would like. Beyond

I've changed reservations on Open Table, and that seems to work fine. They have contact with the restaurant for new reservations, changes and cancellations. That might be easier for you if you aren't local.
