Was a great restaurant, we booked a wine tasting session followed by dinner. The wine tasting lasted around an hour and covered 5 different wines from California. Good fun and give us a taste of wines we wouldn't normally buy. The dinner afterwards was delicious, well presented and cooked. Only criticism was that the main course special was sold out as was one of the desert choices which was shame as that's what 3 of our party wanted. Will book for an earlier time for next visit. Highly recommended.

Calistoga's food is delicious and offers a fresh twist to many of dish selections, the wine is heavenly and a perfect marriage to the food and the atmosphere is easy and laid back. It's a pleasure to meet friends and pass time in this restaurant. The staff are friendly and deserve recognition for their patience (especially when it comes to indecisive diners who suffer from terrible food envy and no focus on making their minds up!). It's setting is cosy and welcoming - just like a Californian hug. I thoroughly recommend this lovely restaurant.

I have been here many times and realised I have never submitted a review. I was there again last night and had a really enjoyable meal from their latest menu. Calistoga is in a hidden location behind Rose Street but worth the search. The menu is inventive, changes regularly and is fairly priced. Californian food and wine would not usually be my first choice but anyone thinking this place is all burgers and bland wine is in for a surprise. The restaurant is cosy and warm and the service always helpful and efficient.

I choose Calistoga for the evenings when I don't know what I want to eat. They always have a menu which tempts you and is unexpected. In a city with a vast array of similar style restaurants, that is always welcome.

Cant say i could recommend the food here. We had the lunch offer. Fish Chowder was served cold and had a vey strange taste. Main courses were overcooked and lacked taste. Could not and would not recommend this restaurant.
