We visited the Calistoga Inn the day before New Year's Eve this year. Upon entering, you are immediately warmed by a very cozy, victorian-type of interior. It was raining quite a bit, so the ambiance was very nice.

We first perused the wine list. I was a bit disappointed! The wines that were offered were marked up quite a bit, and I wasn't super-impressed with the choices. I did note a lot of patrons bringing their own wine in. The corkage fee here is $15- typical, but high in my opinion. So this was my first disappointment...

The second disappointment was the lack of accomodation. I asked to order the steak, but instead of mashed potatoes, could I have scalloped potatoes (on the menu also)? I was told by our waitperson that he would ask but could not guarantee anything. Next thing I knew, we were being served, and I ended up with the mashed potatoes. Not a huge disappointment, but I would have appreciated the waitperson coming by to say that he could not substitute.

The food was great. I liked my steak, but loved my husband's chicken better. The grilled winter veggies were awesome. Everything was good (except the wine). I would go here again, perhaps for lunch, to see what type of service I got. AND, I would definitely pay the corkage and bring a great bottle of wine to match the great food. Thumbs up for the chefs... Awesome food, guys and gals!

Found this place after seeing recent negative reviews of the place we were going to go for dinner. Very happy that we deceided to have dinner here. Cozy atmosphere, fine food (great Flat Iron steak w/Cabernet sauce), delicious beer from the brewery. Will definitely go again. It doesn't hurt that locals (like Barney with Everett Ridge winery - worth seeing if you have time!) also like it. We had a reservation but didn't really need it however I could see it being a must on weekends.

What a fantastic restaurant! We have eaten dinner here after enjoying the spas of Calistoga for last 6 years. We have found the food delicious, service strong, and ambience soothing.

Enjoy the outdoor dining environment during the balmy summer months and the warmth of the indoor dining room during the winter season.

This restaurant has only delivered the finest in service and delectible California cuisine; therefore, we encourage everybody to try it. We have yet to endure a bad experience at his eatery.
