Amazing delicious food served on beautiful handmade dishes. Don’t miss!
We've eaten here several times and unlike most restaurant I adore, this one gets better each time. The second story dining add-on was also superior!
The best vegetarian options! Lasagna was divine. Homemade pasta — amazing!
Great place! Friendly, excellent service and delicious food. Our daughter needs dairy free options and they were plentiful along with tasting great.
Wonderful food and great waitress.
My second time dining at Lovina!! Absolutely fantastic!! If I lived closer, I would dine at Lovina at every opportunity!! Can’t wait to go again!!
We love going to Lovina for Sunday breakfast. Our server “Taylor” is awesome!
Food was good but missed the mark in a couple of small ways - salad was overdressed and the bread pudding for dessert was a little bland, but the salmon was cooked really well. The staff was excellent. I'd be willing to give them another try.
We left both entrees uneaten due to it being barely edible. The risotto was soup and not cooked enough at all, the boneless ribeye was absolutely terrible. Came out raw and tough. We asked them to put it back on the grill and they came out with the entire plate scolding hot. Their wine selection was poor, the waitress did not asks if our meals were ok and made us pay for all of it without asking anything about the food not being eaten. At the end of the meal, the waitress said to us “have a good night doing whatever you’re doing”. From the moment we walked in the door we seemed to be bothersome to the hostess. Very very poor experience overall.
The portions are out of whack here. Came for my birthday and paid entree prices for 1/2 the portion u would get at any other restaurant. This is not a high end upscale operation where it’s $$$$ for small plates. This is a normal restaurant basically ripping off customers and making them leave hungry. Did not want to spend a penny more than we did here for what we ordered. Talked to someone who said they were “management” and after explaining we were starving after paying $30 for a pasta dish and $15 salad that had 5 lettuce leaves on it, bargained with us to give us half portion more of the bolognese we ordered. Very shabby management here and would not return or recommend.
Love this place. So happy they're open again. Great folks there, management and bartender are excellent.
fantastic food and great service
we were celebrating a birthday and they paid such attention to detail
Service and cuisine are pleasantly very exceptional and very enjoyable, however noise above us (ceiling) detracted from ambience and enjoyment. While only 10:30am it sounded at times like a group of people were dancing boisterously on the floor above which is also part of the restaurant, a second floor open terrace
Both pasta dishes, prawns in cream sauce and the bolognese, and the risotto orders were freshly made and very tasty. Pastas are made in-house.
Delicious Moscow mule with pineapple, wonderful service, and we enjoyed everything we ate, desserts are a must!
Loved This Resturaunt!! We are Definitely coming Back. Very Good Service!! Excellent Food !
Absolutely outstanding meal. Great for a vegetarian like me too. Epic dessert! Very warm and unpretentious. I’d definitely come back!
Innovative and delicious!??
Brought an exec group here for an offsite. Custom menu, custom pairings. Incredible experience. Would go again.
It was so delicious; it was the first time in about six months since my wife finished the whole plate herself. She didn't want to share. That is saying something
The menu was interesting, and we appreciated the vegan options. The ambiance was nice. The risotto was excellent. The ceviche was very fresh but not as flavorful as we'd hoped. The duck salad, vegan lasagna, and vegan cheesecake were good but nothing special. Our waitress was excellent at first, but later no one bothered to take our dirty plates away, even when they brought our dessert.
Always THE BEST experience, all around. Thank you, Lovina. We love y’all.
It was fantastic my favorite brunch in Calistoga
Great food, food presentation, and taste. It was amazing! The staff were very friendly as well. Awesome experience. We were able to sit in the ‘family room’ which was perfect for our group. Very clean restaurant.
Who would have guessed in the land of meat and cheese that Lovina's would create THE best vegan Lasagne? Well, they did, and we loved it!
We like sitting outside on the street side, even with the car traffic. When we arrived they were going to sit us behind the cafe which was a converted parking lot. The area was too sunny and the music too loud. They were happy to move us to the front where it was quite pleasant.
Overall the service was excellent. Great customer service—the waiter consistently checked in and made sure we had all we needed. The food was great and the atmosphere was pretty laidback on a sunny Saturday! I’d recommend this place to friends and family—plan to come back. :)
Love LOVINA… Best restaurant in Calistoga… shhhhh
Lovely patio area and upstairs veranda. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Nice staff that checked in on you often. Will definitely be back and recommend it to friends.
Enjoyable Dinner - Ceviche, Shrimp & Pasta - Very good. No Full Bar, but a very nice Wine list.
The food was good but the wine list was pretty terrible considering where the restaurant is located. We didn’t end up with a bottle of wine, which we always have when out to dinner, due to the poor list. Hopefully they will consider updating it.
Hello! What would you have liked to see on the list? We have very limited storage, so it can't get very big, but I'd love to know what you were looking for and I'll try to find something that fits that range to improve the options. Best, Jen
Food and service was excellent. Gem salad is killer. Bolognese and roast chicken are both highly recommended.
It was very family friendly and food was so special from what we normally experience in our home town.
The service was very friendly, accomodating and ambiance good.
The food was mediocre. We liked risotto, added shrimp to it. And thats where it ends.The cevice was so finely minced you couldn't revognize what you eat. Pasta boloignese didnt have depth of the sauce, it was spicy and that didn't save it.
A wonderful dinner on the porch at Lovina. Ingrid was our wonderful server - knowledgeable and vivacious. Wine list is A+.
This was a great find in downtown Calistoga! There are a lot more tables than it looks like from the street. We scored big time by being able to sit in the private game room upstairs. We all had delicious salads. The drunken goat mac and cheese was wonderful.
Thanks to Taylor, we had flawless service!
Thanks, I'll pass your compliments on to Taylor! Glad you had fun!
Great vegan options, beautiful dining on the porch.
Love love love! As a vegan, I was so delighted to have such yummy dishes available to me!!! Toren the bartender was so much fun to chat with. Will go back again and again!
So glad to hear it, thank you!! I'll pass your compliments on to Toren. He's new, but I think he's fitting in just fine! Best, Jen
For the food, the meatball app was delicious. Our main course was the risotto and the lasagna. The lasagna was very good. The risotto had great flavor but the rice wasn’t cooked all the way through so was a little starchy and hard.
The service was very good and friendly. Would go back.
Great service and ambience. Food is fine but ridiculously overpriced for what they are serving.
