Girls weekend! The artichoke and Aruba salad were delicious. The truffle deviled eggs were spectacular!

Our dishes were prepared expertly & creatively by the chef. We asked for a slight change on our salad selection & it was no problem at all. Very accommodating. Excellent COVID precautions too. Felt very safe.

My wife and I love this place. We planned our trip around eating here. Thank you for the service, quality, and atmosphere. This time there was live music, not over the top. Just right. =)

We had a excellent lunch! Very friendly staff! Wonderful outdoor setting. I had the grilled chicken sandwich accompanied with an arugula salad. My wife had the beet salad with chicken. Both were very delicious and were presented well. We highly recommend this wonderful place!

A group of 6 of us came to Sam’s social club for dinner. Our reservation was at 8, we got there early hoping to grab a drink or two prior to our dinner. We were told they couldn’t accommodate us but that if we returned at 7:30 they could seat us for dinner. They seated us the furthest from the outdoor dining room, we noticed each table had their own personal heaters, not ours. After we were seated it took our server 15 minutes to even greet us. We ordered appetizers and a round of drinks prior to our meal. The appetizers came within 20 minutes and our drinks hadn’t come yet, it took another 15 minutes to get our drinks. Then we ordered another round of drinks before ordering dinner and they took another 30 minutes to arrive, this continued throughout the night. This wouldn’t have been an issue had our server communicated that the bar was busy. But we never heard from her. We finally got cold enough during our dinner that we had to ask to turn on a heater, that was just off and sitting next to our table the entire night.

The food was decent- I ordered steak frites medium rare and I think it barely touched the fire and arrived cold.

All in all, we spent over $500 dollars for a meal and drinks that were subpar and service that just wasn’t there. I think next time we will stay away from Calistoga.

The food was good, really slow and poor service on every level. 20 min to order a cocktail, plates left on table 1 hour after meal. Maybe they are short staffed, but really poorly done. Won’t be back. It was a birthday dinner, but absolutely nothing specIal. Many other good options!

Wow- obviously not ready to open. Beautiful a d well heated outdoor space. But... waited 40
Minutes after cocktails order for food order. Apps took another 30 minutes to come out. Entrees at least 40 minutes later. Waiter and manager ghosted for all of it. Entrees even came out wrongly cooked, overly cooked usually, and cold. Embarrassed I brought friends in
Expecting impeccable service and food... humiliated.

celebrating both our bdays we wanted to celebrate with a sit down dinner . The food was good . We both love the pasta and our party are vegetarians ..we were able to get the pasta without the sausage . The area where we sat was very pretty and warm enough for the night . But we were very diasppointed in the service . When we did get a waiter he was very attentive and answered all questions but after the inital contact with us (when we order our food) there wasnt that much interaction . I dont know if they were understaff but it didnt seem it was busy . There was a good number of staff walking around . I was also suprised that we werent asked if we were allergic to any food . I am allergic to a few food items and For this type of restaurant , where the food is farm to table style . For example after our food came out i asked for an ice tea and when i drank it .. it didnt taste like regular ice tea . It didnt taste bad but it also suprised me because it wasnt just ice tea (like a floral taste). And it took about 10 mins for me to flag someone down to ask .After that i was hesitant in the food we ordered and I had to ask my friend to try things for me before eating it . After getting the bill it took another 15 mins for us to pay . We tried to get anyones attention to help us but our waiter was no where to be found and the staff (including managers i believe because they had a uniform own) was not coming our way eventhough we know we had eye contact with them . I finally decided to go up to the host desk and pay. Giving it a 3 stars cause the food was good and comfortable seating during covid dining but if we knew that it took more time and effort for us to flag down someone to help us than to actually enjoy our dinner there then we should of just gotten take out and ate at the comfort of our hotel room or ate somewhere else.

We have been there a few times over the last 4 years. It has been hit n miss. This last week will be our last time. For the price the food isn't very good. It wasn't horrible but not worth the $ spent. I got their burger (been great before) This time half the burger was cooked correctly and the other half was over cooked. I wish I had taken a pic lol. The worst part is the place was being full of screaming little kids. Its not their fault but they are located next to Indian Springs Resort. There are better options in Calistoga that are better for quiet relaxed dining. Sorry we wont be back

This was one of our first dinners outside during the pandemic. The service was excellent and the food was great. We had spent the day by the pool and had drinks and a full-course dinner. It was a great way to end our time at the Indian Springs Spa. We will do it again soon.

Mediterranean sampler was amazing! Our server wasn’t familiar with the items on the menu (he wasn’t even tracking that the halibut was an option that night). Nice vibe but slow service.

Reservation system didn’t seem to matter - when we arrived for our dinner reservation, all tables were occupied and front of house staff was insistent on us taking what was available inside without much regard to my family’s discomfort with being inside during a pandemic. We got seated 45 minutes after our original reservation time.

The hostess changed our reservation without confirmation from us. After telling us that our number was wrong in opentable, we confirmed that we had the correct number. The hostess remained displeased that we wouldn’t accept the change to the reservation. After, it was clear that our table was mostly forgotten. Others who sat after us received good service and ours was pretty poor.

The service, food and environment was amazing. Even during a pandemic, the outdoor setup with the large tent and more than 6 feet apart dining helps make the dining experience comfortable.

ThE choice of food for lunch is very limited. The smoothies are delicious, the soup and the salmon pizza are highly recommended, the other items we ordered were ok. The service is quick, but I watched the tables being sanitized and it was not satisfactory. Sweeping a quarter of the chair doesn’t make it sanitized properly.

Lovely atmosphere bubt mediocre food. It was lovely to sit outside and see our two friends but, the food was not memorable. Perhaps this is because they are just getting back up to speed after Covid. I hope with a little more time, the service and the food improves because I would like to return.
