“Excellent conversation bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2012

Especially if the weather is nice and the fire pit is going, plan in going there for the evening. Great conversations, especially if locals are there, and you can always do bocce ball there.

“Overpriced Breakfast”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

Find a local breakfast place if you're staying at Solage. Overpriced breakfast that was not even good.

“Beautiful Location”

The dining staff was very attentive! The atmosphere is lovely. You can sit out side and enjoy a glass of wine in the lovely night air, then walk around the lovely grounds.

“Still Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

We first dined at Solbar in May 2011 and have been trying to find our way back since then. Finally made it there last night and had another awesome experience. The food is deceptively simple - the kitchen treats each fresh ingredient with such respect that the flavor of every element in each dish just shines. The Meyer lemon dressing on my perfect butter lettuce salad was incredibly fresh and flavorful, and my husband loved the smoky scallop appetizer. I ordered the "inside-out chicken" entree, which was sweet and tender (although the baked egg accompaniment didn't add much to the dish) and my husband ordered the duck breast with forbidden rice - superb. We shared the decadent chocolate cake w/stout ice cream for dessert. Also worth mentioning: the service at Solbar is beyond incredible. Everyone, from the sommelier to the waitstaff, is knowledgeable, helpful and available. (Chef Sharp visited each table at one point in the evening.) Kudos to the entire Solbar team!

“Lives Up To All The Hype!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2012

I had heard about this restaurant for so long and finally got to dine here this past Fri. night! So excited! We made advance reservations on opentable for 5:45. Our table was ready when we arrived and we were seated by the beautiful fireplace in the back of the restaurant. The ambiance is very beautiful, elegant and the dining room is spacious and inviting. This is a really nice place to dress up for a fine dining meal while in Calistoga.

For dinner I had the Sea Scallops which were amazing and prepared with tempura lemons and chirzo. The salad was also excellent for our first course. The corkage fee is $20 here and we enjoyed a bottle of Domaine Drouhin Pinot Noir with our meal. Unfortunately we did not have dessert because of a larger lunch at Willi's in Santa Rosa earlier in the day.

Solage is a beautiful, contemporary resort in Calistoga and totally lives up to all they hype and good press it has received in travel publications. We were staying at The Indian Springs Resort which is just around the corner from Solage. I highly recommend Solbar for a fine dining meal in Calistoga. :)
