  • "The food was quite good and the chef, who came out to greet guests, was very charming. Ingredients were fresh and delicious. Loved the ambiance but the wait staff was slow to notice and respond. Never refilled water unless asked."

  • "Well done chops, no juice or flavor. Had to complain as not edible. Owner tried to bring a new dish, but my date was nearly finished with the pasta dish. The pasta vegetables were chopped so small, the snipped ends of the green beans were in the sauce. Very odd to include. Nice restaurant setting in a house. Need kitchen and wait staff to round out the menu and setting."

  • "Dark bald guy with gross earrings scowled at me as I entered with my 2 dogs. Since the restaurant welcomes dogs on the patio and there were two others already there, this surprised me. Both my dogs sat immediately down (one big/one small) and didn't move for the entire time I was there. When he came to wait on the party next to me, I got another very direct look of disapproval. I asked if there was a problem. He suggested my dog was in the way and that I should "move him over." Really? If dogs are allowed then be welcoming to their owners - not grumpy and scolding. My waitress was lovely and almost made up for her co-worker's rudeness. Dinner (lamb salad) was marginal. Pleasant but hardly an entree."

  • "Very well executed comfort food. The outside seating is attractive and well used but is situated next to a State Highway. Inside seating is understated and quiet. Service is casual but attentive. Lots of street parking close by."

  • "This has quickly become one of our very favorite places to eat in Calistoga. Combination of very good (and slightly unusual) menu and extremely friendly staff"

  • "The best meal I've had in a long time. I had the duck egg and bacon sandwich on a jalapeño roll with home style potatoes. I was not only excellent but it looked great too."

  • "This is a great restaurant and moderately priced! Nine dishes to choose from and each one is a hit! It is located in an old house/cottage style and has just a few tables. A lot of locals frequent this place, so you know the food is excellent. The night we were there, the owner/chef was rotating around and making sure we were having a good meal/time. "

  • "I wish I could really rave about this spot as it is so cute and rather an historical site. The food was excellent by the way. But the entire waitstaff, hostess experience was really not flowing. Mind, the place was not that busy.. We were two, so we were rather shoved in a far away table although by a window. We waited a long time to see someone. She was really not interested in us for the entire meal experience. And waited even longer for drinks. Asking for water, it never came We waited for food for some 20 minutes, ugh. I had to ask for the check and then she served us the wrong one. No manager on the floor as well, as far as I can see, certainly not helping out with larger parties! Shame! "

  • "I found Calistoga Kitchen via Yelp and thought to give it a try. The restaurant is located in a converted house... you literally step in to what it would be the living room of a traditional home. The setting is intimate and feels rustic. The decor is simple, nothing fancy... but, the food speaks for itself. We had an amazing quail salad, hen, duck breast and delish vanilla cheescake. The price point is a bit high, but worth it. The chef/owner went around each table asking for feedback and welcoming us to the restaurant/home. Very very good California food."

  • "It was good. Let me say that. I had hoped though for so much more. First, we were seated by the kitchen door without much view. Wish they had put us somewhere else... Then thought the menu was a little limited. Our food though was very good. Service was good, not excellent, not bad, just good. Maybe it was us as we had traveled that day all the way from Florida, but it while it was a good restaurant, it was not as excellent as I had expected."

  • "I booked a table for two for Valentines Day and had some trepidation because Open Table had no ratings at the time I booked. It turned out to be a wonderful surprise. The food was artistically presented, perfectly prepared, and delicious. The chef came by the table no less than three times during the meal to see how we were doing. The waitress was charming. The place was full, so I would recommend reservations."

  • "An evening of gourmet dining was enjoyed by six 'experienced foodies'. Our selections included blacken cod, rabbit, wild boar and gnocchi. The presentations were outstanding and the flavors beyond this writers ability to describe. The service matched the food in quality. Don't miss this little gem in Calistoga."

  • "Cozy setting, even with minimal decor. Feels like being invited to someone's house, if they just moved in. Service is friendly and courteous, and the owner took the time to chat with the customers. Dishes are very much comfort food, with generous portions, and nothing ostentatious in the presentation--just nice, simple, and satisfying. Will definitely be back."
