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.

This was our second visit and we probably wouldn't have come back if our friends who were visiting hadn't wanted to go to this specific restaurant. The food was good but not great and certainly didn't live up to all the hype. Our server was excellent and he is the reason we gave Jole three stars. The manager needs to... More

I know I'm adding to the stack of flattering reviews, but I think it's only fair because JoLe is that good. My mom and I enjoyed the tasting menu - particularly the snapper and venison. I thought the portions were excellent; just enough to enjoy - not so much that I was too full to enjoy the next. We also... More

I had their octopus for dinner. Oh my. It is so hard to find a chef who knows how to cook it right. It was tender, succulent, and a bit of Spanish influence. Congratulations Chef!

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
