Quick snack and drinks.

Our first choice was closed so we wandered in here. I agree with the poster who felt "pushed out" which was weird since the place was half-empty. We would come again for a drink and a snack.

We used to come to lunch here annually as one of our favorite spots for lunch when in the area. We particularly loved the plate of 1,000 fries and the chicken paillard. We came back again and again, for years, for those dishes. We went today and found things have changed a bit. The lunch menu has been scaled way... More

The food was tasty but felt like I was being pushed out by the older bartender. Could have had better service. I thought after a few months it would get better.

It a mystery why the wonderful Ralph's Bistro morphed into this miserable small plate cocktail bar "concept" ripoff. The menu is now a dumbed down half portion version of the former bistro's faves at twice the price. It's served a la carte, stingy and as a careless afterthought. This place isn't about food, it's about booze. It's a bar for... More

This is the reinvented incarnation of Bistro Ralph. Now a full bar and yummy small potion dishes. Great!

This "Martini Lounge" is a peach after a long day in the vineyards. Very small venue, Nice art. Staff is friendly. Listen to cool music and watch interesting people walking around the square. But, all that aside, the food ROCKS! Small plates with big flavor. Must have the chicken livers and a tamale that is to die for! Will never... More

Stopped in for a few glasses of wine. Ralph was actually working behind the bar. Good wine by the glass list, and another patron was actually doing a tasting flight at the bar. Menu looked good. I visited in the afternoon but walked by several times in the evening and its a very busy spot.

What a find - the food is simply outstanding at this tiny little restaurant/bar just off the plaza in Healdsburg. Following a friend's recommendation, we arrived at 1:30 on a weekday. Any later, and we may not have got a table. The menu is entirely small tapas-style dishes. The foie gras was simply spectacular.

We were here a few years ago and thought we would return on this visit. We sat at the bar and shared the tamale and the tuna tar-tare. Both were very delicious but the tamale was Hispanic spicy. Service was good and from the restaurant noise level everyone was having a great time!

Literally stumbled onto this place. Used the Web to look for restaurants. Small, quaint, a little outdoor seating. Long bar and tables in full view of the kitchen area. Very good wine list (well, in Sonoma...). The menu was amazing for such a small place. Over 3 dinners had: Calamari (twice), Caprese salad (twice), Soft-shell crabs (twice), Ahi tartare, baby...
