“Exceeds expectations”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

Calistoga has a fair share of mediocre and expensive establishments, including some owned by the owner of Brannan's. But not Brannan's. Classic California cuisine served flavorful and fresh. There was subtlety to the flavors that went far beyond what we expected. Good wine list, including some good choices by the glass. Service is friendly and fast, and the dark wood and beautiful bar lend a certain old world charm. Hard to go wrong for a high-quality meal here. Given the general price range in Napa, I'd say it's even a value. Cheers.

“Good pit stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2012

We stopped in after dinner for desert. Even though the staff took a little long to attend to us, we had a great desert and excellent wine, and the staff was very friendly. We would go back.

“can't go wrong!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

Lamb Shank - awesome!
Macaroni & cheese - a must!
Hogs Farm Oysters - DELISH! (at the bar they are $1 cheaper per oyster but you can ask your server to give you the deal!)
