We did the early bird sitting this evening, which was great value. They are strict about leaving by 7.30pm if you do this. The food and wine was fantastic, particularly the pumpkin cheesecake!
The waiter wasn't great, we asked for recommendations and were not helped. He didn't seem very interested but apparently he has won a bar trade personality of the year award. Maybe he enjoys the bar better than the floor?

Totally unpretentious, just good food good wine and lively atmosphere at around £30 per head including wine. Worth seeking out, could miss the lane it is on.

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.
