the Calistoga Inn and Restaurant is local for us, but we never miss it. During the warmer months, the outdoor seating is the best. But as it was early December, we were inside. In either location the service is always great, the food choices are good and always excellently done. This time we had company from out of state and wanted to take them to the Inn. It was very well received, as usual.

the Inn is a dependable meal out, whether business or pleasure

So, while the food was fine and the service was acceptable, we had seating by the kitchen door and the door made so a bad high pitch squeaky noise that it made me dizzy and ruined the whole experience. When we were leaving we asked to speak to the manager to let this person know that a serious problem could be easily remedied but after waiting we were told that the manager was too busy to talk to us. Clealrly, they do not need a recommendation from me as they can suit themselves.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Calistoga Inn, and it was really terrific! Everything tasted marvelous. The lobster bisque was amazing, the Brussels sprouts were delicious, the main courses were awesome as were the desserts. Service was very friendly and accommodating. All in all it made for the perfect holiday dinner out. We will definitely be returning to Calistoga Inn!

My problem was I had no idea there was a set price for a Thanksgiving dinner of $73++ for a 3 course dinner of a salad or soup, turkey dinner or salmon and a dessert. We know this restaurant and their pricing and even with an up charge for their food and Thanksgiving, it was highway robbery. With $15 for first course and dessert, and $35 for entree, this is still a $23 upcharge for Thanksgiving? Really!!

The Inn had lost power that night but still served us in candlelight. Cooks were cooking by flashlight, servers by candlelight. everyone went above and beyond to make our meal great. Ambiance was great with all the candles.

We were excited about the menu for the restaurant listed in open table for our birthday dinner celebration. Unfortunately, that was not the menu actually served. Salad was excellent, our mains of seafood linguini and oven roasted lamb shank only so-so. Lamb shank was bland with a gristly layer of fat; seafood linguini was overpowered by very fishy mussels requested to be held (they were not). On the upside, service was outstanding, ambiance in the outdoor garden dining area was very nice.The manager in patrol could spare an occasional smile.

Great atmosphere! Sitting outside on the patio was very nice, really charming. They had a gentleman playing music that was great background music. Menu had a lot of options that looked delicious. I had the flank steak that was cooked perfectly, and the portion was very generous. Service was a little slow but we were not in a hurry.

The outdoor patio was perfect for a beautiful autumnal evening dining under the stars. Service was attentive and the food arrived with perfect timing throughout the duration of our visit. The filet was cooked to perfection and the accompanying sauce was the perfect compliment. A great setting for dining with friends.

An excellent alternative to the more typical high end restaurants in Calistoga when you want some good food and wine, but nothing fussy. Good pizza, salad, burgers, steak and fries big enough to share, etc. Outdoor seating with heaters and excellent live music. The outdoor space moderates the noise level of a lively crowd. Give it a try.

The restaurant is on the patio beside the river, shaded by trees and a collection of awnings and umbrellas. The breeze and the soft burble of the river made the setting delightful! We ordered two different pizzas and one entrée salad for three of us, and that was just about right.

The pizzas were terrific!!!!!!!! Truly outstanding. Mine was prosciutto, fig, mascarpone and a few other delectable ingredients, covered in a layer of very fresh arugula.


Wheelchair (or walker) access is excellent. No problem at all. The noise level was perfect for three people to talk - two of whom have trouble hearing when there is a lot of ambient noise. I'm so tired of very noisy restaurants - and this is NOT one of them. I'd come back here again for sure.

We had a wonderful evening at the Calistoga Inn. We had our daughter and granddaughter with us and it was a beautiful evening to sit on the patio. The food was absolutely delicious. The children's menu is great and the grilled cheese sandwich was one of the best I had ever tasted. I managed to get a few bites from my granddaughter's dinner! The other entrees included pasta with seafood and cheeseburgers, both of which were delicious. Nice beer made at the brewery. A lovely ambiance and great service too.
