“Hyped, business-like”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Food was generally prepared well (kudos to the young chef working hard in front of the woodfire? oven), but some of the flavors were a little off (e.g., too salty; too tart; weird combinations). The service was also mixed, with the waitress trying too hard to be saleswoman-like. Okay ambiance for a nice dinner out, but I've had much better food and service elsewhere.

“Great Food, Great Wine & Great Service”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This is must place to eat if you're staying in/near Calistoga. We had a resevation at 8pm and were sitted promptly eventhough the restaurant was very busy. The waitress explained the menu and we decided on the 4 course tasting menu with the wine flight.

We quite a wait for our starter, but the waitress apologised and we soon had a complimentry top of wine. After this slight hiccup the rest of the food arrived in good time. As we had ordered the tasting menu we were expecting small portions a bit like tapas but we were so wrong as the portions were all of good size and we were soon nicely full. Each course was excellent and the wine flight complimented the food. All this for $80 bargain!!!

Overall we had some of the best food whilst on our holiday at JoLe and would recommend eating here.

We were stayed in Calistoga for 3 nights and ate here twice. On our second visit i had to complain regarding my dish having under cooked pork but the staff were great, and the main course was struck of the bill and we had a free dessert. The manager also came over and apologised, this incident was dealt with professionally, just what you would expect in such an establishment.
