We eat here every time we are in Calistoga. The food is delicious and they have really good bread. Their butternut squash ravioli is an excellent choice but every thing is good.

5 of us went to this restaurant. It was kind of busy, so we had to wait a few minutes for a table. It wasn't that long though 'til we sat down and ordered a variety of dishes. We also ordered the roasted artichokes appetizer. Every single thing we ordered was delicious and very much enjoyed. The atmosphere was pleasant,... More

So disappointed this time. Was looking forward to the Carbonara dish....gluey...too much greasy bacon(!) flavor. Uncle Sully was rolling in his grave!

The server was professional and efficient, but the guy who kept the bread basket and water glasses filled, the dishes cleared, and provided the take out box was totally amazing. He had this stuff mastered and made the meal delightful. And he did this for several lunch parties at once! The food was tasty and the portions were perfect. This... More

Great place for lunch! Ordered the Napa and my boyfriend ordered the Thai salad. Both were yummy and we enjoyed the table in front of the restaurant viewing Calistoga's Main Street.

I have enjoyed meals at Checker's on several trips to Calistoga. There is a nice selection of pasta dishes, and those I tried were very good. My servers have been wonderfully attentive as well.

Went here twice on our stay in Calistoga. Food was great with good portion sizes and fresh taste. Service was good too. Would definitely visit on our next stop and highly recommend for their pastas.

We landed here for lunch, with no prior info or recommendation, so it was a total blind entry. Plus, it was a weekday so the place was almost empty (danger! danger! right?) we ate pizzas, salads and sandwiches...every one of them fantastic...and took home some pizza that was great the next day. Server was excellent.

We stopped for a quick lunch before heading for our massage appointment. I had a wonderful salad with the house dressing and a great glass of wine. My friend had the cheese board, which came with 4 cheeses, crostini, dried cranberries and candied walnuts. It was a gorgeous spread that is more than 1 person can eat. The restaurant was... More
