This place is SUPERB! Arrived without reservations during low season. Food was absolutely delicious from start to finish. Careful, inventive, fresh, local. Waitress friendly, attentive, and knowledgable. Had some delicious wine. The coconut cream pie was the most delicious pie I have ever had. Complimented the waitress, she brought this to the attention of the owner who was at the... More

This seemed to be the most expensive restaurant in Calistoga, but had much the most interesting menu. The servings were not large, but they were very rich, and we ended up ordering too much. Lovely to find sweetbreads on offer, and various shell fish. Smart waiters and waitresses and a sophisticated atmosphere. Would be a good place for well heeled... More

Our waiter patiently answered all of our wine questions and let us try a few things before committing. The atmosphere is minimalist and laid back, but the food is fit for the pickiest gourmand. Highly recommend. Try the sweetbreads.

First, I would like to thank two people for an enjoyable evening. Josh for his excellent pairing of cheese and wine. I will never look at a South Rhone wine the same way again! Keep up the great job. And my new friend Rebecca. From her recommendation of the Snap Peas and Tofu appetizer to the Sweet Tea Duck, I... More

My brother and i took my dad here for his 76th birthday. Great choice with some small hiccups, We had a reservation for three on a Saturday night at 7pm and when we arrived, there were only two-tops available. First small hiccup. Thank goodness for our bartenderess Sabrina whom entertained us and recommended so great local vodkas, bourbons and wines.... More

Our last night in Calistoga could not have ended on a better note. This is on the main road in Calistoga and the front is unassuming. We sat by the window which is excellent because I love to people watch. The dress is casual. Reservations STRONGLY encouraged. The menu was absolutely enticing. There is an option to have samples of... More

On our trip to Indian Springs Spa we walked around Calistoga and happened to find JoLe. It was a busy night and we did not have reservations. The greeter found the two of us a table near the kitchen and across from the dessert chef. I believe he is one of the owners. Watching the fresh bread from the fired... More

The food here is ok, some good and others were not so good. Service was good and the decor was nice. The next time I'm in Calistoga I'll be going some place else, mainly because the price is so high for the quality of food.

We popped in kinda of late in the evening and didn't have reservations, but luckily we sat at the bar were owner Matt was making deserts. I think we enjoyed talking to him as much as we enjoyed the food. The portions are perfect and we got to try something that we didn't order and was not on the menu.... More
