“Great Food, Great Wine & Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is must place to eat if you're staying in/near Calistoga. We had a resevation at 8pm and were sitted promptly eventhough the restaurant was very busy. The waitress explained the menu and we decided on the 4 course tasting menu with the wine flight.

We quite a wait for our starter, but the waitress apologised and we soon had a complimentry top of wine. After this slight hiccup the rest of the food arrived in good time. As we had ordered the tasting menu we were expecting small portions a bit like tapas but we were so wrong as the portions were all of good size and we were soon nicely full. Each course was excellent and the wine flight complimented the food. All this for $80 bargain!!!

Overall we had some of the best food whilst on our holiday at JoLe and would recommend eating here.

We were stayed in Calistoga for 3 nights and ate here twice. On our second visit i had to complain regarding my dish having under cooked pork but the staff were great, and the main course was struck of the bill and we had a free dessert. The manager also came over and apologised, this incident was dealt with professionally, just what you would expect in such an establishment.

“one of the best meals of my life.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

my wife and i ate at jole in june of 2010 and i can honestly say that this was one of the best meals of my life. i actually got a tear in my eye when i took my first bite of the rib eye. i've never gotten emotional over food, but somehow it was so deeply satisfying that it touched something deep inside me. it's almost embarrassing to even write in public, but the world should know how great the food is here. we also tasted some of the best scallops we've ever eaten and they have great cocktails. we now live almost 4 hours away, but are considering a trip back to calistoga just to eat at jole again! (although the rib eye appears to no longer be on the menu.)
