The place is warm, comfortable and quite beautiful. The food is not. A dusting of grated parmesan and four croûtons on romaine lettuce do not a Caesar salad make. I like my hamburger patty to hold together, not to fall apart in meat crumbs. I also like my burger to be seared, not beige as if it has been cooked... More

Stopped in Calistoga to walk around for a while between tastings. A little wined out so was really thirsty for a cold beer. Walked in and the manager said they didn't open for 15 minutes. Asked if he would let us sit at the bar for a drink. He said absolutely. Shout out to him for that and for quenching... More

Delicious food, great service. Pricey! I tried a Calistoga Cooler for a cocktail. It was not what I expected. Had a real strong medicine taste, not appealing. Other than that, everything else was good.

My wife are from Colorado and we visited this restaurant while touring various wineries in the Napa Valley region. The restaurant certainly looked inviting enough and was decorated beautifully. The menu surprised me a little bit. It seemed like a lunch place dressed up more like a steakhouse. My wife ordered the fish tacos and I had a prime rib... More

Can't go wrong with a wedge salad, shrimp cocktail, and steak. Very nice comfortable bar area and Carlos is serving good drinks.

We had dinner here with a group of 12. We walked in on a Rainy Friday night from our hotel and were fortunate that they could seat us right away! Most of us (couples) ordered a burger or the short ribs. Both were absolutely delicious!! Their corkage fee was reasonable, and we were able to drink some of the wine... More

We were in Calistoga for a wedding. This restaurant was the "Welcome Reception" a day prior. It was so impressive from the décor to the food to the service. We had the entire dining area for 2 hours. The food, particularly the cheese and Carpaccio were incredible. The wine selections were perfect for the food chosen. Servers were personable, remembering... More

Beautiful wood bar nice place for a drink but food leaves a lot to be desired. Had onion soup which was oily and flavorless. Bread was not fresh. My husband had a burger which he said was ok. Nice atmosphere and good wine selection from the Napa area.

Thank Maureen D
