You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu; of course nothing is cheap since this is Healdsburg after all. This café is medium sized, there's plenty of tables but some are a little close to each other. However, arrive outside of street rush hour to avoid waiting on a table. I don't know if... read more

Bistro Ralph is small inside, and I think reservations would be a good idea. The food was presented very nicely and tasted great. My husband ordered the duck cassoulet and caught the chef's eye to say how much he enjoyed it. The chef came over to our table and chatted for just a moment. Our waitress was very friendly and...

On holiday we dropped in at Bistro Ralph after walking the Square. Reservations recommended. We enjoyed our entrees, a chopped lamb burger with finger fries and argula salad, and a bowl of mussels in a delicious white sauce. There is seating at the bar with food service, as well as tables, and there are 2 tables in the front facing... More

Good atmosphere, friendly service, good food, I had the mussels and my husband had a delicious risotto. For us it was a bit pricey

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
