Definitely go to this restaurant--a group of four of us did last Saturday night. The food is great, the vibe is lively and the service is outstanding. It is located in the lobby of a hotel along the main drag of Calistoga. The cocktails were a hit (Peach Manhattan) and the food was excellent. My appetizer (ahi poke) was so... More

We spontaneously stopped by Jolē on a Thursday evening. Two seats were left at the bar. We were a little disappointed not to have a table - but as it turned out, the service at the bar was direct and friendly, perhaps more casual and engaged than at a table. We selected the four course tasting menu, each with different... More

We had the 4course wine pairing it was amazing the desserts with the wine pairing was wonderful! The sizes are smaller but it allows you to try more on the menu. We got a new server who was still getting the hang of things but the food and wine was amazing! We will definitely go back

My husband and I love good food, and JoLe did not disappoint. We did four course with wine pairing for $90 and we were full and a little tipsy (i.e. they did not skimp on portions or pourings). Highly recommend the octopus - one of the most amazing blend of flavors I've ever had - and the coconut cream pie... More

Overrated for sure. If you want an over priced small plate of food this is the place for you. This place was recommended by almost everyone in town, which I now think is a conspiracy to get you to stay in calistoga so the locals can laugh at you spending hundreds of dollars for 5 pieces of deep fried pork...

Well, how do I start.? The menue is well thought out and delicious. We were lucky enough to sit at the chefs counter and watch the wonderful fare being made. The owners are a lovely husband and wife that we had the pleasure of meeting! ENLOY JoLe!,

We enjoyed every dish at this restaurant. Our kudos to the management and chef. Our waitress was knowledgeable, fun and pleasant. The restaurant is located in a hotel. It is not too large so reservations are important. My husband had a sampler which was 3 entrees and a dessert. I had an entree and ate my husband's dessert which was... More

We went here for our 31st anniversary hoping for a nice and romantic dinner. The food and service was very good. The problem seems to be a noise factor. It seems like they try to be a high end restaurant but yet want the bar scene, too. Go but don't expect it to be quiet.

This restaurant has a somewhat limited choice if you are a picky eater - but all the items on the menu are excellent - the service is very good - a little on the eccentric side - which is great

Reservations are necessary. The corkage charge is only $15.00 We ate there on a Sunday night and it was packed.
