    The food was unspectacular. The salad and dessert stood out as very good. My pasta was too creamy and meaty and overcooked, not Al dente. The risotto I’m told was ok. Service was excellent and the ambiance wonderful. I think $189 for two people with 2 glasses of wine, even during restaurant week is a bit much.

    Early dinner was wonderful. Started with a delicious celery root soup. If you love soup or just want a warm comfort food definitely give this a try because it is outta this world…the chef cuts tiny squares of flavorful apples to go into this frothy light soup….they are bursts of flavor that pair well with the soup. They are famous for the pasta with spicy meat sauce, and it is a delicious dish. The halibut was perfect. The menu is short, but includes vegetarian & fish dishes. We highly recommend giving this restaurant a try.

    We went for an early dinner on New Year’s Eve and sat inside. The ambiance was cozy and lovely; our server (Taylor) was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable; and the food was exquisite. Sauces were a little excessive on the plate and made the presentation of our short rib and fish dishes a little sloppy, but our entrees tasted so good, that the appearance did not negatively affect the overall culinary experience. The server also noticed and brought my husband a new plate. We highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Calistoga area!

    Amazing flavors and a deft hand by the chef. Salads were dressed properly (not overdressed) items were seasoned well. Portions are on the large side so recommend splitting. Such a special place with fantastic staff and food!

    we really enjoyed our dinner. Would definitely dine here again. great food and ambiance and I really appreciated the no tip policy. There was only one server on the night we were there so the service was a bit slow which actually fitted our pace. The manger was great and helped out

    Delicious food no question. We had to sit outside and hear lamps but still impacted experience no fault fully of Lovina. (Late reservation) Service was poor. Gave us a bottle of water and did not pour for us or refreshed. High end restaurants always do that and these prices were high. Waitress would Walk away in middle of ordering. Heat lamp turned off and we were still enjoying our meal outside and n 45 degree temp. Just general lack of attention to the customer essentially.
