One of the finest meals we had during a 12 week road trip. Friendly service too! Loved the fresh watermelon salad and the 1000 french fries. Jamie, the chef prepared a special meal for my niece Kris who is vegan. Extremely accommodating. Looking forward to going back on my next trip to the west coast.

I have lunch here at least once a month. A wonderful feeling of old and new world wine country classic cuisine. Traditional bistro at its best. You will be satisfied, comfortable, and relaxed and unsure if you are in Sonoma County of a small village in France. If you are a liver fan (I am)....this is nirvana.

We live in Healdsburg and eat out two to three times a week. Bistro Ralph is one of our favorite places. They serve straight through the afternoon, and our favorite time to eat is around 3pm. The cuisine is french influenced,seasonally inspired, with a focus on comfort food. The serving staff have been there for years, are most gracious, and... More

Our party of 4 had lunch at Bistro Ralph last week, and I thought it was great. It is a small place right on the square in Healdsburg. Our waiter was enthusiastic and welcoming. Three of us had their specialty "Chicken Paillard", which is a pounded then sauteed chicken breast over shoestring fries. It is simply sensational. I read one... More

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
