Beautiful wood bar nice place for a drink but food leaves a lot to be desired. Had onion soup which was oily and flavorless. Bread was not fresh. My husband had a burger which he said was ok. Nice atmosphere and good wine selection from the Napa area.

Nothing super fancy but good food and service. I had the burger and fries which were perfect after a day of tasting wine

Small group of us after a day out and about. The wait staff was good and attentive. The food was just avg. I enjoyed the veggies more than the duck. It would have been better with a nice sauce. The flan was very good.

Our lunch visit to Brannan's was most enjoyable. The corn soup was especially scrumptious! Both the Cobb Salad (made to my special specifications) and the Caesar Salad were not only almost over-flowing the plate but very well prepared by the chef. The decor of the restaurant has a nice formal appeal with its wood features and fireplace in the common... More

We ate here one night. The food was good and the server was great. Not too expensive, but not cheap. I would go back

Nice decent place but the waiters are the best. We had been there with a little fussy baby and a dog and the service and tolerance was fantastic. The menu is nice we ate the salads that was as it should be. Recommended.

I'm not sure if Brannan's is under new management or if the chef was off that night, but the lettuce in our wedge salad was a bit "flappy". They also changed their menu. We normally eat there every time we visit Calistoga and look forward to Brannan's calamari. This visit, it wasn't even on the menu! I also missed the... More
