LOVE THE CALISTOGA INN RESTAURANT
Beautiful outdoor seating was a little noisy while we were there as they were hosting a wedding reception in the back yard of the restaurant. Food was SUPER and wine selection was great. Our server was professional and fast. I highly recommend this place!

It's my first time here. We
It's my first time here. We were sat promptly at the outdoor patio after arriving on time @ 12:15pm on a Saturday. Since it's a brewery, asked for suggestions on what kind of beer to order. I ended up ordering a Calistoga Pilsner (light) and my friend ordered a dark draft beer. Two of us shared a fungi pizza (delicious) and a Napa breakfast (2 poached eggs over chicken w/ country potatoes. The service was good and the outdoor patio ambience was great. Had a relaxing and enjoyable lunch. Plan to get there early if you don't have a reservation because the place fillup quickly by 12:30pm. Will recommend it.

We went for a birthday dinner and were very happy with everything. We had the tomatillo/tortilla soup, Caesar salad, Pomodoro pizza, and the portabella mushroom entrée. All were very good, the portabella was my favorite along with the soup. Our server, Salvatore couldn't have been more "on it" and comfortable at the same time. Assistant servers were all good. We ate on the patio next to the creek running, twinkly lights, and a Spanish guitar player - the night was warm and calm - just wonderful. Our waiter steered us away from the lemon/arugula pizza saying some folks said it was bitter but I am still thinking about it. Great night and will be back, thanks.

Calistoga Inn is back
We use to love to have lunch here in the summer, then the fire came and the place was closed for a year. Recently we heard that it was open again. So we headed for Calistoga last Tuesday on a bright sunny day. We had lunch outside in their patio area and it was just as delightful as ever. We had the hamburger and the pastrami sandwich with their homemade potato chips. We shared the two sandwiches, and we both thought the hamburger was our favorite. It is such a peaceful place, with creek on the north side of the patio to look down on. The prices are on the high side. (hamburger $15.00). We also had their tap pear cider, it was icy cold as always. Our waitress was very nice and friendly. The patio closes at the end of Oct.

Wonderful. Comfortable fine dining.
Loved this place. Hangar steak was delicious. The desserts were outstanding!! The chocolate "ganache" (which I can describe as a thick pudding/fudgy goodness) was one of the most delicious chocolate desserts I have ever had. I had a couple of bites of the peanut butter pie that my wife enjoyed. We both thought it was absolutely outstanding.
This place is comfortable, with nice wood floors, and homey. The service was friendly and attentive. I feel fortunate to have dined there. I plan on returning as soon as possible.

Great dinner in a lovely setting
We had dinner here on a fairly cool evening and sat outdoors comfortably, courtesy of some strategically placed heaters. We started with the soup of the day - black bean and roasted corn - very delicious - and the dungeness crab cakes which were crispy on the outside and creamy and meaty on the inside. For our main, we had the daily special of halibut served on a bed of roasted vegetables in a yellow curry sauce with basmati rice - the flavours were very Thai and worked well together. The wine list featured a number of excellent local wines by the glass and there were several local micro brews. Best surprise was the live music. An excellent evening.

Lovely Romantic Gem
Outdoor dining next to the Napa River on an Autumn evening was the perfect romantic dinner. The service was excellent and the food was good. What else could you ask for.

Beautiful place with great food
Coming out of a fire issue, the Inn has come back strong. There is a large outdoor area which in cool weather is heated with gas touches making it very comfortable. Indoor is equally pleasant and comfortable. The food is great. I had a short rib, with a hosin sauce, fell off the bone delicious, on a bed of potatoes and spinach. My wife had a white fish, very well prepared. The server was knowledgeable and pleasant. He knew his stuff and made the dinner very pleasant. Dessert was a peanut butter pie, new to me but just delicious. The had a great selection of craft beers and Napa wines. We get here about once a year, but it is on next years schedule. Great eating experience.

Last night in Napa Valley
Our group of 5 dined at the Calistoga Inn and Brewery on the last night of our trip to San Francisco and Napa. We were expecting just a casual meal of burgers and beers. We were all extremely pleased and impressed with the setting of the resturant, the service and our meals. Each one of us tried something different, fish, burger, chicken steak and short ribs. Each was excellent. We were happy to spent our last night in California at this wonderful resturant.

Everything wa awesome!!
My friends and I came for my birthday and it was awesome! The service was great, our waiter suggested the bruschetta and it was by far the best I've ever had! The ambiance was super cute and very shabby chic! I have been raving to everyone I know about this restaurant!

We had a really nice Thanksgiving meal at the Calistoga Inn! Great food, ambiance, and service.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Calistoga Inn. I was wonderful. If you are away from home or living there, it is a very nice place to spend a holiday or special event. Everyday dining must be nice too. Thanks to everyone there for making our meal special.

Best. Thanksgiving. Ever.
My wife and I ended up visiting friends in the Bay Area for Thanksgiving, and decided to head up to Napa by ourselves on the actual day of Thanksgiving, which was an excellent decision! Calistoga Inn is a real gem, and our server treated us like family. The menu was excellent (my wife does not prefer turkey, and was ecstatic to have a perfect filet mignon instead) and the wine pairings were as delicious as you might imagine. We were so stuffed after our meal that dessert seemed a bit too much, so we packed our desserts to-go, and enjoyed them thoroughly the next morning with our coffee after sleeping in a bit at our hotel. I highly recommend every couple spend at least one Thanksgiving by yourselves in Napa Valley, we enjoyed every minute!

Great Winter supper
Although Calistoga Inn is a favorite for the summer months with the beautiful patio, we had a wonderful winter supper on a cold December evening in the newly remodeled dining room. Started with tasty oysters on the half shell and had a fabulous winter risotto followed by roasted chicken with creamy polenta.

We were there from out of
We were there from out of town to see the tractor parade. Made reservations ahead of time, Thank goodness.
Dinner was great, have only eaten there for lunch outside which is always wonderful. So happy they finally reopened after the fire!!

Great way to kick off the holidays
Choose the location based on the Holiday Tractor Parade, turned out to be a better choi e than I could have hoped for! Staff was lovely, ambiance charming and the food was spot on. The only thing they could have added was to go cups of hot cocoa with peppermint schnapps for the parade ;)
