Fun restaurant and great food

Met a good college friend at Bistro Ralph and enjoyed our dinner. Had the plate of 1000 fries which we didnt finish but had fun eating. They had a great variety on the menu for everyone to choose from, chicken dishes, etc. Small place but great atmosphere.

I enjoy this restaurant so much. It is right on the town square and isn't huge but so pleasant. Every time I've eaten here the food was excellent. My friend and I order a half order of the fries and it still comes as a mountain of shoestring fries! Great place for a meal.

On trips between Seattle and the Bay area, I always stop at Ralph's for the haystack fries...a giant mound of crispy shoestring fries. It's beautiful, fun, and delicious. On this trip we also had the spare rib ravioli, which came with a delicious huckleberry sauce, and we also had the risotto, which was nicely done. The restaurant has a casual... More

We were on a wine tour in Healdsburg with, for us, a mere 90 minutes allotted for lunch, oh my! Luckily our genial hosts Tom and Brenda at the Belle de Jour Inn had recommended Bistro Ralph as a must try and as they had an open table, in we rushed. Our charming waiter, noting our anxiety quickly served us... More

Bistro Ralph it appears that is running strong for many decades (over twenty years) Well everyone wants to try the new places or the number one on Trip Advisor. Usually something new, we opted to try something more classic, after-all it has to be a reason why this restaurant it is in business for so long. I ordered the Black... More

We chose this restaurant for my husband's birthday dinner based on our hotel's recommendation and the fact it is open on Monday night. The food was excellent - calamari done just right and delicious duck confit - and the service was great. The atmosphere is pleasant and it is right on the square so we enjoyed our table by the...

We finished a bike trip in Sonoma in Healdsburg and we're looking for a special place to celebrate our week of cycling. Bistro Ralph is a locals favorite and so we made a reservation. Unfortunately we were busy and had to arrive 30 minutes late, but they held our reservation. Wow. The food was just amazing. From the appetizers to... More

Lovely bistro next to green in Healdsburg. Enjoyed our meal from start to finish - fresh and delicious salads, amazing fish of the day and cassoulet with duck, ended with rustic apple tart. YUMMY! Our favorite meal in Healdsburg.
