We met another couple here for dinner while vacationing in the Napa Valley. The service and food were good. I would not suggest the Ahi tuna poke as a meal (as I did), but share it as an appetizer for the table. It was great, but more than I could eat.

We were walking along downtown Calistoga and wandered into Brannan's Grill. The atmosphere is friendly and clubby, and we had a absolutely wonderful late dinner. I had the lamb shank infused with rosemary on polenta. This was the best lamb I have ever had-it just fell off the bone (even better than lamb in Greek Town, Chicago)! The service was... More

If you don't believe me... GO for yourself you won't be disappointed! Food, service, atmosphere outstanding! I recommend the lamb shank or the flat iron steak!

Used an Amazon Local to try this place and will definitely go back. Anyone that can make a hanger steak tender and flavorful deserves a repeat visit. The mushroom capochino soup was flavorful and creamy. The vegetables weren't just garnishes but excellent. The dessert was very satisfying too! We will go back to try many other things on the menu

The woodwork in this place is amazing. They open the windows along the sidewalk during the day so it's like eating outside. Cocktails were delish and food was good.

Varied menu with extensive wine list, but too expensive. Oysters, seafood and an attractive venue. Happy hour everyday. The mussels and claims were good.

The food was fantastic although we asked for gluten free. And the chef said that cous cous was gluten free which it is not. But the food was served to satisfy the hungry and had some very good flavors
