Recently a group of my friends went to Brannans for our dinner. I have to say..I am never disappointed in the service, the menu and I love sitting near the open windows. People are so friendly..service was amazing..food was over the top. If you are looking for a good place to have dinner in Calistoga..I would highly recommend Brannans Grill.

We've been in wine country for 10 days and this was the only disappointing restaurant! We, a party of 6 couldn't not get any service and only a few other tables were occupied !! If a servicer is clueless and the manager is clueless then never go there. I rarely get upset but my hubby was glad I took lead... More

Great meal in a beautiful setting. Attentive/prompt service made this a very nice experience as part of our 30th wedding anniversary. Highly recommended.

We were there for dinner on a busy Friday night. Food we had was flavourful and imaginative. Good wine list. We were a bit concerned having read earlier reviews but service was friendly and efficient.

A great visit to this wonderful restaurant. New Friends and old, gathered for a great meal of appetizers and lunch. It was a special treat to meet the owner Mark who was gracious and sat with us for a while. Brannan's is on our must visit list next time we are in Calistoga. Excellent wine,. Wonderful ambiance and and delightful... More

Worst restaurant service ever. Cocky manager repeatedly insulted us and worse part it was my birthday. Asked to speak to owner about at least 10 screw ups on their part. I was refused access to the owner. Once it escalated to a full blown argument in comes an owner who proceeds to stick a threatening finger in my face. After... More

We were looking forward to eating here, but when we did, they didn't have the wine I wanted and the waiter never refilled my water, until I already paid the bill (even though it was empty from before the food arrived until the bill came). He was hardly at our table. Very disappointing.

Went with friend after a day wine tasting. Ordered ribs as I enacted a good filling meal. Really disappointed that I needed to ask for a steak knife s the ribs were super tough. I hadn't expect that, even though they were short ribs I'd hoped they would be slow cooked and melt in the mouth. My husband had the... More

Having a late breakfast and no lunch, and plenty of wine tastings, we were ready for a great dinner. Brannan's was recommended by our hotel and we're not disappointed. Oysters were sweet and tender to start with. My wife had the blue cheese and macadamia nut crusted filet that was grilled to a perfect rare temperature and was super. I... More
