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

We were greeted by a friendly staff and the owner came out and introduced himself. The food is amazing and in my opinion, they have the best Big Buddha chicken wings, savory tuna poke is avocado, crispy rice “tots”, sesame malt, chive blossoms. and the Heirloom Tomatoes. Not to mention the wonderful dinner menu. A delightful experience in the heart... More

Great restaurant with a nice bar. We sat at the bar while we waited for our table and the bartender was very attentive. Once to our table the service was pretty good; slight language barrier with our waiter but everything else was good. Food was very tasty! Love the interior of the restaurant especially the open air concept. I would... More

The food is excellent, very friendly staff. Great bar. I had the steak and it was perfect. Close to the Roman Spa, easy walking distance.

This is my favorite place to eat when visiting wine country. The food is great and worth the price you pay for it.

My wife asked for no bleu cheese and it came with bleu cheese. I would think a good waiter would check an order before putting the food on the table. They did make it right..but still. I asked for their cheeseburger medium well and it was undercooked. But it was still tasty. Ambience was good. Been there done that I... More

We would never go to Calistoga without a visit to Brannan's. The ambience, service, and food (and generous cocktails!) are always first-rate. My wine flight this last time was $14 for three huge pours of Sauvignon Blanc -- all excellent vintages. We had the heirloom tomato salad -- fabulous! In previous years, we have had full meals, cocktails, and always... More

We had a great time at Brannan's. The waitstaff was knowledgeable and gave perfect recommendations for wines to pair with our meals. We ordered the heirloom tomato salad (which is huge - and not what I expected -- they tear out the inside of a huge tomato and build the salad into it with bread, olives, tomatoes, cheese), the lamb...

Absolutely loved this place! The atmosphere of it lets you settle right in. I took my mother here for a Sunday brunch and the experience was divine. The location is quite nice. Located in Calistoga, the town is relaxing but lively at the same time. The restaurant itself is beautiful with the exposed wood (which my mom loved). This place... More

Visually stunning food and yummy, too!! A group of us just spent 3 wonderful hours sampling Brannan's happy hour offerings and we were really amazed. First off, everything came out of the kitchen just beautifully: tiny chopped herbs and veggies made it look like confetti was sprinkled on some of the dishes. My absolute favorite was their "Salt and Pepper... More
