About

The Calistoga Inn Restaurant has one of the most popular outdoor dining venues in the Napa Valley. Its 150 seat patio stretches along the Napa River and its award winning micro-brewery - Napa Valley Brewing Company - occupies the historic water tower. We just underwent a massive remodel and renovation, and opened a brand new Indoor/Outdoor bar at the entrance to the Patio, adjacent to our welcoming fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs to sit and watch the town go by. Our Beer Garden is available to book for private events such as wedding rehearsal dinners and birthday parties, and offers a casual setting with cedar planked picnic tables and two additional fire pits. The inside Dining Room offers a vintage Napa Valley atmosphere and looks out to the our Indoor/Outdoor Bar as well as our garden patio. The Pub offers a vibrant late night social scene and is also a popular upscale sports bar with five flat screen HDTVs.

Food is exceptional. Best dinner of the week even compared to a Michelin star restaurant!! Lighting outdoor at some tables was poor. Part of the appeal of food is Visual and it was so dark, we could not see our food.. The live music was a great addition. We look forward to coming back post Covid to this place.

We went to the Calistoga Inn for drinks and appetizers. We had the Cheese and Charcuterie board and it was nice. I really enjoyed my cucumber vodka cocktail. The other food that came out looked really delicious and overall, their menu has a good selection and variety of food.

The only thing that wasn't great was that we were seated outside next to the river and the bugs were awful! We couldn't actually enjoy our experience because we were shooing flies and wasps away. I actually got stung by a wasp. This isn't the restaurant's fault but it is something to keep in mind since seating is only available outside.

We had a lovely time here on a Wednesday night- politely greeted and promptly seated, immediately approached by our server, food was BEYOND delicious. My boyfriend and I cleared the plates and we’re way too full for dessert although based on the dishes we had, I’m 100% their sweets would be just as awesome.

We ordered the Bordeaux blend half bottle, oysters, gnocchi, and salmon w/risotto... if you need a menu suggestion ;)

They have a great set up for "Social Distancing" . Place was very clean and the food was well prepared and plenty of it! Great to split if you have a small apatite! The menu is varied. Good wine pricing by the bottle and the glass.

We enjoyed an outdoor lunch. The pizza was excellent and there were several yummy salad choices. The setting is lovely by the river. The prices are reasonable by Napa Valley standards and service very friendly.

Try the calamari - it was great.
Brocollini was served cold - disappointing. Instead of replacing it, they re-heated it.
Paella was quite tomato-ey. Good but not great.
Good selection of wines.

I always enjoy my visit to this place. The food and service are consistently top quality. I always enjoy sitting outside by the river and this was extra special with a friend visiting from out-of-state. Our server, Griselda, was very attentive and recommended wine pairings for our food choices.

The beer was just ok, we found one we drank, but typically when we visit this kind of place we're looking to hang out for a few. Food is overpriced, 7 emaciated chicken wings for $16. We left and had dinner elsewhere.

We enjoyed paella, tomato and peach salad, and sparkling wine. The server was very helpful and it was no problem that we split our salad and main dish due to our smaller appetites. We dined outdoors in the warm evening sun and even got to hear a bit of the evenings entertainment. Loved the music. I will certainly recommend this place to anyone coming to Calistoga.

The outdoor seating is great in the summer. They have live music every night - if you can catch their happy hour. As with everything in Napa Valley it's a bit more pricey than it's worth but still a better value than somewhere in St Helena or Yountville. And much more real, laid back casual vibe.

The outside seating and live music was great

Perhaps it was bad night for the cook. My salad was soggy and not tasteful. The Padro peppers were good but somewhat difficult to eat many. The steak was terrible although the chiimichurri sauces was ok. The chicken in the salad tasted off. Overall it was disappointing

All was good, but a $19 salad was skimpy and poorly presented.
2 thin end tomato cuts, 4 tiny slices of peach, a dollop of burrata cheese
all covered with arugula.

Food and drinks were great. Was very cold once the sun came down and nothing to keep our group warm or fend off the mosquitos. Had us leaving much sooner than staying and enjoying another cocktail.
