While out wine tasting with friends, we stopped at the hydro Grill for lunch. The Ruben sandwiches are fantastic. We also had a charcuterie plate, also delicious. It's a great place for good food at reasonable prices and good service. Will definitely go back.

I ordered Seafood Chowder & my sister ordered Beef Bolognese. My chowder came (with jalapenos in it, really?), I ate and finally the server came to let my sister know that they were out of the B.B. She offered lasagna. I was totally finished when the lasagna came but there was no beef; only mushrooms. My sister does not eat... More

Had breakfast and lunch there and we really enjoyed our meals. They have live bands some evenings but didn't go there at night.

We had a good casual meal at the Hydro Grill. It was relaxing and our server was attentive! The veggie sandwich was tasty and huge! Thank you!

Four of us had mid-afternoon lunch. Favorable responses to tacos and splitting a delicious BLT with avocado. One had a salad which she sent back because it was too vinegary and she left the restaurant. The 3 of us were happy with our food and drinks.

Great lunch spot with a diverse menu and some of the best burgers anywhere (they recently won a "best burger in the region" contest). Garlic fries are addictive! Good wines-by-the-glass, very good salads.

This was a return visit to experience an early dinner/late lunch, as we have only been here for breakfast. It was not crowded and a rainy day. We selected the French Dip Sandwiches and were not disappointed. Nice soft roll and a side of mild horseradish. We got the French Fries offered with the option of a salad or other... More

Had a good breakfast on recent trip to Calistoga, right around corner from our hotel. Good coffee and juice. Menu has lots to choose from, and I chose the apple sausage and polenta which were both very good. Prices average for area. Service was very good. Didn't enjoy flies that came in when door was opened so I wouldn't suggest... More

Hydro Grill, great dinner spot, and have eaten at the grill before, however today for breakfast might need some improvement. I ordered the Fritta, and spouse ordered the ham and eggs. The ham was a huge slice and eggs were fresh. However the Fritta was cold, it took awhile to get the servers attention, and advised it was cold and... More
