The location is right in the middle of town. The wine list was very impressive. The menu was serving only what is fresh during the week. The service was really friendly. We had a great experience and will plan on returning when we go to Calistoga again.

I'll be honest here, we listened to Tripadvisor for Calistoga and went for numbers 1 and 2. Thankfully one was closed on the day we were there and the other booked up. We wandered round to JoLe and were thankful we did. They were busy but found us a table; the menu has lots of interesting things with quite a... More

Very disappointing meal especially in light of the mostly positive reviews here. Our grilled baby corn appetizer was so salty it was inedible (which the waiter, manager and chef all agreed upon) and yet they did not comp the dish, they just brought us another (somewhat less salty) baby corn. The main dishes (flat iron steak for her, venison for... More

Good food, very nice sommelier who patiently helped us pick out the right wine to go with our 4-course meal. Definitely recommend.

We had a wonderful dinner here. Our waitress was superb, helping us select several courses for tasting from among many interesting choices. She also made excellent suggestions for wine pairings. Food was delicious and beautiful! One of our best dining experiences in Napa!

JoLe is a small, savoury, quiet, and beautiful restaurant in downtown Calistoga. My wife and I had a wonderful dinning experience from start to finish. Although we arrived early for our reservation, we were seated promptly. The menu and it's multiple-entry options were explained fully and clearly. We are not big fans of California-style wines, we find them light. The... More

My wife chose the 4 course tasting menu with the wine paring. I chose the 5 course. I believe there is a 6 course. Overall a great meal and friendly staff.

We reserved a table and had a very disappointing table (by kitchen walkway, under noisy air conditioner), after asking several times, the people who had reserved the window table didn't show so we moved. That made a huge difference in our attitude and enjoyment. Good wine list (of course), terrific bread (be sure to ask for some), good food. We... More

Expensive yes but very worth it. They match the meat with the wine and I have to say spot on. I live in the UK and would travel back to Napa just to visit this place again. The food is fantastic and staff are friendly. Definitely recommend booking.
