Great restaurant

This is a lovely restaurant on the main street of Calistoga. The food is delicious, the surroundings casually elegant, and the service prompt and unintrusive.

We found this place to be overrated, the choices limited to smaller portions and you need to like all the typical characters like duck rabbit etc. for high price. Would not suggest but of course just my opinion.

The restaurant has all the makings of a great restaurant, but missed just a bit. We had reservations, which really weren't needed and opted to sit at the bar. The bartender was a bit aloof at first, but became friendly enough. When I ordered my drink, they didn't have my vodka as they have more boutique type liquors, but it... More

Great place for foodies looking for an experience, not just a meal. Tasting menu lets you choose your own multi course meal. Combine appetizers and main courses in any way you like - and don't skip the dessert as pastry chef is amazing.

This was our first visit to JoLe in Calistoga. They had a great pairings menu with terrific flexibility - you get to pick any 3, 4, or 5 items on the menu, you're not restricted to a set menu for the pairings. We were an hour early for our reservation and they seated us immediately. The service was really on... More

Our dining experience for dinner was the icing on the cake for a great weekend in Calistoga. The dinner and wine pairing was exceptional. Food was fantastic and the wine pairing was very well done. This will now become part of our Calistoga experience on a going forward basis.

Looking for a good glass of wine and a small bite JoLe is just the place. The bar tender was great giving us wine sampling until we found the perfect fit. The bar food was great, quick and delicious with a small but perfect selection. We sat at the small front bar and got great service. The restaurant was full... More

Avoid going to this restaurant on a Sunday night. We were seated by a waiter who looked annoyed that he was elected to seat us. Our waiter took our order and then basically forgot about us. We were served bread and water by a bus person and we also ordered cocktails. Neither of us liked our cocktails, and I even... More

Delicious food and attentive service. My wife and I chose the four course menu with wine pairing. Not an economical way to eat, but it was great to end up with eight things off the menu between us. Lots of sharing - except the sweet breads which I got to myself - which was fine, they were probably the best... More
