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...

We come here every year. Food is great as are cocktails. I have written a review before.The reason I'm writing the new review is that they have a $15 corkage fee and Tues - Thurs corkage fee is waived. This is great when you are visiting wineries and buying wines you want to try. I had forgotten this and it's... More

My wife and I had dinner here on the first night of a three-day weekend in Sonoma and it was a fine place to start what would be a wine and food weekend in addition to the wedding that we would attend. This restaurant is attractive and our dinner was very good, including the wine our server recommended. The only... More

We have enjoyed both lunch and dinner here on many occasions. My favorite entrée is the" Chicken Paillard". My cousins from France who were with us the last visit for lunch also ordered the chicken and loved it although they said they never heard of this dish in France. Never the less it is outstanding. They are also known for... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the server who shook martinis at the table, they don't really have a bar and made you feel she could have been the proprietor if you were in France. Substantial portions of bistro classics like roast chicken and short ribs were very pleasing. Nice wine by the glass and a shared dessert followed. It was expensive, but... More

I ordered the specialty of the house - Chicken Piccata. It came to the table burned and was sent back. The second one was not much better. I know this is a great restaurant, but I just happened there when the kitchen was not operating at top level.

My husband and I ate dinner here in mid June, 2014. We got one of two tables out in front. They serve a "haystack" of fries that 4 people could share and still have some leftover. We split a few dishes and it was more than enough. Our waiter was funny and very friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant... More

We chose Bistro Ralph based on numerous separate recommendations, and on high ratings on TA. Overall we were a bit disappointed. The steak, which we were told would be served "medium: pink" was more red and rather raw. We ended up having it sent back for more cooking. The butter was overly sprinkled with salt. The salmon was OK, but... More
