Have only been here once but plan try it again soon. Was disappointed in their special burger. Will go back and try a regular burger. Good drinks. Great service.

I definitely recommend the house burger and Asian salad. They have a great choice of beers too. A very nice place for lunch or dinner!

We had a nice dinner here with our family of four. The menu had a large selection and our group had calzone, a hamburger and Thai mussels. I think we were all happy with our meals. The wait staff was quick and pleasant. A good selection of beer and wine to choose from if you want something with your meal.... More

At first we were not too sure about eating here, but ended up having a delightful meal and experience. The food was very good. I recommend having at least one meal here when visiting Calistoga.

This is a nice place for a beer and food when you are in Calistoga. It might be the only place to find craft beer in a sea of wine drinkers. So this was a bonus for us, as we are not wine drinkers. We had some good west coast craft beers and good food that was well prepared. We... More

We had a great meal here & will definitely be back. You seat yourself which is fine as you choose where YOU want to sit. Almost immediately the friendly waiter was on hand to take the drinks order. The food was superb, tasty, well cooked and generous portions. The restaurant was really busy but we did not feel neglected at... More

This was my first time dinning at Hydro Bar and Grill and did not expect the food to be as good as it was. The reason I say this is because everyone can't make jambalaya or seafood soup. The flavor in both was unbelievable and the presentation was well put together. 10 stars to the chief and staff.

I did not expect to like the food. the place looks and smells like a bar, definite scene going on in there. But we all loved our food, best fish tacos I have had in a long time. The service was quick and efficient.

Seated ourselves which was ok but wait staff made it seem like we were an inconvenience by being there. Food was mediocre. Check just dropped off, no thank you for coming etc. No communication at all. Wish we hadn't left a tip.

Stopped in for lunch after our mud bath and spa treatments. The restaurant was busy (holiday) but were seated right away. The menu had great selections and the service was good at the beginning but dropped off quickly while we waited for our meals. While we waited, we noticed 4 tables who were seated after us and ordered after us... More
