We absolutely loved this spot. First time and will definitely come back again and again.
The outdoor patio (former parking lot) is lovely with big red umbrellas and sparkling lights at night. Great ambiance and plenty of distance.
Not a great selection of salads and appetizers but decent Cesar salad. Entrees offered plenty to choose from; we had the shrimp and polenta which was amazing and full of flavor and the salmon which was also good. Great wine list with plenty of reasonable single-glass options. We will definitely go back.
Our waiter was helpful and made some great recommendations for dinner. We were so satisfied with our meals. We were celebrating our anniversary and we were greeted with a complimenatry glass of Champagne, classy touch. Great place for a romantic evening!!!
Was able to sit inside, which was nice. Delicious temporary Greek menu! Pasta was delicious.
We dined outside and had a great server. We were celebrating my 75th birthday and the evening could not have been more perfect!
Great anniversary dinner!
As with all restaurants right now, they’re doing their best in a tough situation, we liked the new outdoor patio. Service is top notch and the French prefix menu was tasty, however, the appetizers could have been presented and prepared with more care.
Great Negroni, refreshing watermelon salad, and the wild salmon was delicious!
This new outdoor dining space is fantastic. I hope that the restaurant can figure out a way to make the arrangement permanent. We also love the alternating specialty prix fox menus. Lovely way to explore foods from around the country and the globe. Fingers crossed that they can also figure out how to make this work through the winter! But regardless it’s so great to be able to have great food in this wonderful new outdoor space!
Our 25th anniversary but they didn’t recognize it in any special way... no dessert nothing
As an appetizer-centric eater, I loved the watermelon and feta salad and oysters. But the grilled shrimp also a winner! Outside seating is spacious, mellow, super clean.
My wife and I are on vacation during COVID. The food was great as was the service. There was a duo playing pleasant music. There wasn’t much to look at in the outside dining area.
They could only seat us on the patio because of the new regulations, but it was incredible out there. Food was great, ambience was great and the wine list was even better
Outside dining, amazing food, stunning wine list and right in the middle of Calistoga. What more could you ask?! Highly recommend!!
My favorite stop for a leisurely glass of wine and some charcuterie! Nice menu without any fluff and frills that will leave you satisfied. Oysters were freshly shucked, daily delivered Marin miyagis! Award winning wine list from $8 a glass to hundreds of dollars per bottle! Something for everyone! Check out the patio, it’s a brand new addition to the restaurant.
Excellent food and service, generous portions; very nice outdoor space; curry prawns and T-bone pork chop both excellent
Given the limitations of the COVID-19 restrictions, we had a pleasant time. The menu was limited, but the food was very good.
It was ok. They were very busy. May he just opened up.
Great food, great new patio and music. We are very excited about Veraison being open again and their new ventures
They needed one more server to wait on folks. The initial greeting took a littler longer as they only had the one.
Had the chef’s choice 7 course & it was outstanding. Plenty of food awesome presentation & service. There were 3 of us & we all received different dishes.
Excellent food and our server was top notch even with crutches!
The kitchen was obviously having an off day. Both tables next to us had issues with their dishes. Our squid main was not seasoned and the squid over cooked. The server was doing her best.
This was the worst restaurant experience of my life. It took them 20 minutes after being seated to take our order. It took another 30 minutes to bring us any food. During this time we spoke to the waiter multiple times to ask what was going on. He apologized each time, but nothing improved. After sitting there for 50 minutes, we were brought what was supposed to be crab bisque. The "bisque" was a beige watery mess that smelled odd, tasted bad, and contained no crab. We spoke to the waiter and the manager, paid for the bottle of wine they had opened for us, and left. Do not go to this restaurant.
A very busy night had Waiters a little stretched
Food was delicious, the waitress was kind and attentive.
Lamb was very under cooked, desserts were just OK. Their wine was meh. Brussel sprouts were awesome.
It was my mother's birthday and she received her food at least 5 minutes after ours. All our disshes were overcooked. I would not go back. The waiter, however, was very apologetic and lovely.
Very quaint restaurant in Calistoga. Good selection of food, however, limited beer options. Their wine pairing menu looked very interesting.
Food was amazing - service could have been better. Very few people and still had to get up to ask for more water and salt/pepper.
Again, a top-notch experience! Used the Open Table app to reserve a table for 5 on very short notice, even though the restaurant was very busy. Post-Christmas get together with friends and family. The six Virginica oysters shared by two of our party were proclaimed delicious. A beet salad and seared artichoke was had by the rest of the party. Very tasty. Entrees of grilled shrimp, chicken and ribs were exceptional. Topping off the evening we shared the cheesecake, the chocolate empanada, and, my personal favorite, the “Candy Capped” Beignets. The beignets alone were well worth the hour and one half trip (one way)! So creamy, warm, sweet and irresistible! Trust me on this, life is too short to not enjoy a well presented dinner at Veraison, and beignets! Did I mention the Beignets? As always, Danny (the owner), and his staff went out of their way to make our meal perfect.
Bland food, undercooked risotto, watery and sour tartare. Slow as poor service, server did not care about about the terrible food. Automatic 20% gratuity added.
A lot of lack of flavor on the dishes; we notice fresh good ingredients but either the chef it was on a Christmas break or it was not a good day because no flavor pop up the dishes 😌
The pricing here is just out of whack. I ordered the Seared Artichoke, it was $13 and a very small half of an artichoke, not even a large globe artichoke. Several of the dishes were bland, served tepid or a bit off. It's a lovely spot, but the food needs more attention.
This is my favorite restaurant in town but the scallops were just too salty. On a positive note the Virginica oysters were excellent. I’m not giving up on this place. It’s still underrated.
Delicious food and outstanding service! Highly recommended.
Excellent food, good service.
We got a nice table by the window.
All dishes were excellent. The only exception was cheesecake, which was firm and looked more like a piece of soap than a dessert, but that was not enough to spoil what otherwise was a great dinner.
Let it be said that this restaurant provides only French cuisine and should not under any circumstances prepare meal from a different culture. That so I mean by that my Thanksgiving diner started with a choice of salad or butternut squash soup .
My salad was excellent, but unfortunately for the other parties in my group had the very bland , tasteless soup.
Now for the turkey and sides 😫😭OMG!! It seems the cook 👩🍳 was preparing this meal for senior age group. The meal was such a disappointment that we both packed up for my dogs.
The turkey tasted right out of the packaging. Seriously, the French are supreme in cooking but this cook was the worst I’ve ever encountered from such a restaurant.
The salmon was also tasteless.
Finally my pecan pie came to me after an error from the server. It looked as if it was the last bit in the box.
A small and mediocre sample , although it was very sweet.
The champagne was amazing, but half the glass. Oh well 😔
The final blow, It took a while for the check to arrive , finally we were billed more until we found out it was someone else’s check.
My hubby decided that we are never to enjoy the restaurant again.
It was horrible 😤😭
Food was mediocre; def not the Brest thanksgiving meal
Food was heavy and tasteless. More in line with an airport Applebee’s than a costly fine-dining experience. I won’t be back.
