About
Solbar is open for indoor/outdoor dining and takeout. The best aspect of working at Solbar, according to Executive Chef Gustavo Rios, is being part of a “food culture that respects local produce, farmers and ranchers”. He showcases that back-to-the-land reverence with farm-fresh Napa Valley produce—with some vegetables and herbs harvested just moments beforehand in the kitchen garden out back. But, while the sourcing may be local, our chef's influences are global, resulting in flavorful, inventive border-crossing cuisine.

This place gets it all right. The ambience/decor makes you very relaxed, in a posh way. Our server was fantastic. She seemed to come to the table when we needed her, but never interrupted us or came barreling in, asking how everything was. She poured...small amounts of wine over time, so the wine stayed cold, and she wasn't pushy about getting a second bottle. We started with veggies & dip. The veggies came in what looked like a miniature paper bag - super cute. I think the dip was pureed carrot or something - really good, but I can't remember it because the lobster risotto was ridiculous. Three months later, I'm still thinking about it. The risotto melted in my mouth, and the broth was perfect. Definitely not a place to go every week, but for a special occasion it was perfect.More

Manny made a killer margarita - ask for the natural version. So good we found ourselves going nightly for a night cap!

Excellent in every way. Service was delightful and attentive. The surroundings are relaxing and beautiful. The meal was spectacular. The carrot dip was refreshing with delightful flavors. The corn soup was delicious and flavorful. The prime rib was similar to cutting into butter. The sauce...was amazing!More

The restaurant seating inside is nothing special but the patio is beautiful. Food was good but not spectacular. Beer was way over priced. $13 for a 12oz sleeve of Pilsner? $18 for a draft IPA? Come on.

Yes, this was pricey, but so is everything in the Napa Valley. The setting is beautiful and we had a terrific dinner. It was, by far, our best dinner out in Calistoga.

We were promptly seated for our reservation near the fireplace inside. The food was beautifully presented and portions were generous. Upon learning we were celebrating a special event, they offered us complimentary champagne and made our dessert extra special. The best item we ordered was...the salad with shaved vegetables and herb dressing which was perfectly balanced.More

Outdoor terrace with a view onto the hotel pool area. Very attentive staff. Amazing wine list. Ordered the octopus and the beef tartare to start. Had the rockfish and the chicken & dumplings as a main. Everything was cooked to perfection and very tasty.

We dined on the patio and enjoyed a delicious meal. Stephanie, our server, was very friendly, attentive, and made great suggestions with our meal choices. I had the chilled corn soup and rockfish—both were excellent!! The ambiance is relaxed and inviting. I highly recommend dining...at Solbar.More

Terrific food and service, but wine list is only 10% local and outrageously overpriced, e.g., $80 for a half bottle of Mayacamas that retails for $50 -- for a full bottle.

We always come for lunch and sit outside. We have sat by the water feature which is very relaxing and were seated in the area under the shade of the trees. Staff is always friendly and accommodating, atmosphere is high end and relaxing and the...food is local, fresh and excellent. This Michelin restaurant is in the high end Solage Calistoga resort and spa. Would highly recommend for Vegetarians, also has Vegan and Gluten Free Options. We actually visited in May of 2018.More

We came here for our 40th wedding anniversary and were very pleased with the food. The tables were well-spaced, the lighting was dim, and the music was inobtrusive. The service was a little spotty. For example, I had to flag down a waiter to get...my water glass filled. But we enjoyed our entrees.More

Overall a good evening of dining at the bar. First, service was excellent. A single Bartender was on duty and he did Yeoman work, all with a positive attitude. I had: Crudo of Hammachi; Apple and Pear salad; Yukon Gold Potato Gnocchi with Lobster; and...Lemon Cake. All but the Gnocchi were excellent. The Gnocchi was average - it seemed to have all the ingredients soaking in a bowl of melter butter. For $60 it needs to be better.More
