Never disappoints, great food and service but we go for the Martinis. Never a bad meal.... This is an expensive but worthwhile place to dine.

Excellent service and very good food. I had what supposedly were their two best dishes, an octopus appetizer and a duck confit main dish; they were delicious and well prepared. The other people ordered a selection of appetizers, all tasty and good. Reserve early if you want to eat before 8:30 and go for one of the two outside tables... More

We had lunch at this restaurant. Nice spot on the square. I had a salmon sandwich and it was quite good. It was a quiet spot in the middle of the afternoon.

Our table was squashed by the side of the bar, this particular evening was... More

One of the finest meals we had during a 12 week road trip. Friendly service too! Loved the fresh watermelon salad and the 1000 french fries. Jamie, the chef prepared a special meal for my niece Kris who is vegan. Extremely accommodating. Looking forward to going back on my next trip to the west coast.

I have lunch here at least once a month. A wonderful feeling of old and new world wine country classic cuisine. Traditional bistro at its best. You will be satisfied, comfortable, and relaxed and unsure if you are in Sonoma County of a small village in France. If you are a liver fan (I am)....this is nirvana.

We live in Healdsburg and eat out two to three times a week. Bistro Ralph is one of our favorite places. They serve straight through the afternoon, and our favorite time to eat is around 3pm. The cuisine is french influenced,seasonally inspired, with a focus on comfort food. The serving staff have been there for years, are most gracious, and... More

Our party of 4 had lunch at Bistro Ralph last week, and I thought it was great. It is a small place right on the square in Healdsburg. Our waiter was enthusiastic and welcoming. Three of us had their specialty "Chicken Paillard", which is a pounded then sauteed chicken breast over shoestring fries. It is simply sensational. I read one... More

For the fifth year in a row we had a spectacular dinner at bistro Ralph. I had soft shell crab for an appetizer and duck confit for an entree. The heirloom tomato salad was fantastic and my date loved her scallops. The profiteroles were fantastic and the wine list with local limited production wines amazing. We had Mounts Grenache which...
