We live locally, Ralph's is where we go for birthdays! Great food, great wine and fantastic Martini's! I love their Caesar salad, we usually split it! Their fish is always perfectly cooked as are the seasonal vegetables. My husband loves the duck. The animal house sundae is great! Service is friendly and always good. We love to sit at the... More

Great place to stop for lunch. They have a nice wine selection and the atmosphere was very good. The location is great after lunch we walked around town and stopped in to a few wine tasting rooms.

September 16th. Ordered chicken pallaird. It was a soggy/soupy/astringent mess covered in a dense layer (thousands) of capers and about 2 cups of lemon broth. Sloppy overkill of all ingredients just ruined the dish. Waitress was very warm/friendly.

Bistro Ralph If you like a lively atmosphere with excellent food and service and you’re anywhere near Healdsburg in the Sonoma Wine Country you might want to grab lunch or dinner at Bistro Ralph. The Braised Beef Ribs in a red wine reduction and horseradish cream as well as the mash potatoes were super as well as the Halibut and... More

It was bubbling with conversation, the atmosphere was intelligent, and we did not have reservations. The bistro was begging for us to come in, what were we to do? Alas, the concierge welcomed us with open arms and invited us into his establishment to enjoy the fruits of his menu. What a find? Let me say we really enjoyed the... More

Found in AAA! Well regarded and with good reason! Great wine selection. Had perfect lunch. Right size and memorable. I know dinner would be as good or better. Enough said!

I am a local and have been here many times. The food and service is always outstanding. This time I had the Friday special, seafood stew, absolutely amazing flavor. This is one of the best spots in Healdsburg, no wonder it's been here over 20 years.

It is our last night in Healdsburg and we wanted something exceptional. We didn't make reservations, a mistake, but the waitress assured us that if we sat at the bar we would be in good hands, she was right of course. We ordered the special fish that was Halibut and the Chicken breast in brown sugar butter. Wow? Both were... More

We had a wonderful lunch here. The food was freshly prepared and thoroughly delicious. However, one concern we did have is how they store their wine. The red wine is stored incorrectly and we would never buy an expensive bottle at Bistro Ralph because of this. It was warm in there and the wine is stored higher up on a... More

A leisurely day in Healdsburg and the need for sustenance arouse as we crossed the Plaza and saw the outside seating at Bistro Ralph's and could nor resist. Our late afternoon meal was wonderful....perfectly dressed salad and lovely steak and the waiter was kind enough to suggest a wine! This is one place the locals frequent and for good reason....it's... More
