Food and service was spectacular but the leather cubicle entry way kept bashing into me (I was sitting by the window), so that was unexpected. Certainly didn't detract from the good service or great food...but I will choose table away from the leather curtain next time! Loved the calamari and Caesar salad. Risotto was beautifully done.

We were blown away with our order of 1,000 fries, they were awesome and there was NO grease. Our meal was great and service superb. We shall return on our next visit to CA.

We live in Healdsburg and have been enjoying Bistro Ralph's for more than 10 years! Great food, great service, great atmosphere! We usually eat out once a week and Ralph's is the place. Everyone knows our name! When there is music in the plaza (summer time) it's great to sit outside and enjoy a Martini and listen to the music.... More

I love everything about this place, food, service and the best martinis anywhere! The only bad thing is that the owner is in the process of selling this place and opening up a "roundhouse" in the next year or so. I am sure we will follow whereever he goes. In the meantime, wwe will continue to go, sit outside with... More

This restaurant is highly rated, so we looked forward to the experience. We were disappointed. My wife had their special: a Sturgeon dish. It came with a tasty cream sauce, tender asparagus, small potatoes. The fish was very tender and melted in her mouth and the asparagus and potatoes were very tasty. I ordered their caesar salad and Calamari. The... More

A terrific restaurant with great food. The chicken Paillard is exceptional. French influenced is consistently good. They service wine and martinis only, no other alcohol. Not a big deal but you may want to know that going in. Sadly, I heard they are moving away from the plaza and changing their concept in the near future. So, if you are... More

The staff is great. The food fantastic if you are careful in choosing. The staff will show you the dishes and that will help to choose. Our mussels were the best I ever had. Also my Pork Chop was amazing. The mac and cheese was a great side. The other members of my party were not as happy with their... More

This was our first visit to Bistro Ralph's although we used to eat frequently at their former restaurant across the Plaza ( can't remember the name!) The service was very good. But the dishes the 6 of us ordered were all bland. The flavors didn't seem to compliment one another. However we intend to go back and try again.

One of my favorites for lunch --- make reservations and if the weather is permitting there are two tables outside, with a view of the plaza. Grab one of these or ask when you make reservations. Carol and George are great wait staff and will take good care of you. I like the Chicken Paillard with the Shoestring Potatoes on... More

Ralph's opened in 1992, the same year we moved to Healdsburg. Like many, many other local residents it has remained, though there are other good local places, our favorite and preferred restaurant in town. The food is good bistro fare, sourced mainly from local farms or other resources. The very experienced, with many years of loyal service, wait staff is... More
