This place is a great find, as it specializes in small plates... But don't be fooled, its not quite Tapas style, the plates are medium sized!!! My friend and I shared 3 plates and we were stuffed!! The pork ribs were to die for!!

We travel to Calistoga every year in October. We ate at Brannan's last year and enjoyed it. Unfortunately it's changed immensely from a steak and seafood restaurant to a "tapas/small plate" restaurant. Note the outside signage still implies steak and seafood. The only indication of...More

We arrived for a late dinner starving and a little too late. I recommend eating before 9pm. The meal is small servings that the waiter referred to as Tapas. Veal cheeks were good but the prime rib was too thin. Still was good food and...More

After hiking Hood mountain we went down into Calistoga for dinner and Brannan's Grill was our first choice. A wall of windows opened to the street with either sidewalk dining, or seating inside, but with the feeling of being out. Because of the street noise,...More

We loved this place, and the walls opened up to the street, and even though we were inside, it was totally open to the outside. The menu is full of unusual small plates, and everyone we tried was great. The drinks were generous, and the...More

We had dinner at Brennan's yesterday and found it to be good but not great. The atmosphere is nice, the service was very good but the food was so so. All the dishes are small and meant to be shared which offers you the opportunity...More
