Solbar, our casual yet sophisticated restaurant, is part of Solage Calistoga, Napa Valley’s most innovative resort and spa. Relax in the bar with a custom cocktail and a panoramic view of the Palisades Mountains or sit on the patio to enjoy a local wine and take in the scene at our 130-foot swimming pool.

In the Solbar kitchen, we are pleased to offer you a choice of lighter dishes to enjoy guilt-free as well as more decadent ones in which you can truly indulge. We go to great lengths to involve local producers whenever possible and to let the California seasons dictate our menu.

My wife and I usually order from their main lunch menu, but made the mistake of ordering the Shrimp Po boy and Chicken sandwiches. The Po boy had very few shrimp, and less character. It should have been made with a spicy coleslaw, not lettuce. The chicken was tender, but had no taste. Both were served on a nice roll, and the fries were fine.
The food was not worth the drive from Sonoma, Gott's does this type of thing much better, and while nice, the atmosphere is not worth the price differential.

I chose this restaurant by chance for a weekend lunch, and we were extremely pleased about every aspect of our meal...!
Our server suggested a scallop ceviche, and it was Divine - with purple potatoe chips ;
Turns out they had a Michelin star, but recently changed chefs, and are now only star rated, but that will change !!
Airy inside space, with seats outdoors as well, and remarkable for !!!

With a new chef, there will be new offerings soon. Their very popular fish tacos will remain on the menu as they should because they are the best in Napa Valley. It is worth the trip to Calistoga to try them! Our service was exceptional.

Solbar is normally our "special treat" restaurant in town....the last and best place we dine at in town. It normally is classy, refined, and has great service and food. Today we were a little disappointed in the service. Our server seemed to be new, did not know the menu well, and was frequently absent. The salads always are en pointe - Solbar knows how to NOT overdress the greens. Fruit plate was good, but pineapple and bananas both had brown spots, which was surprising. Crabcakes were mediocre. Good beignets and coffee. Quiet, relaxing, a nice experience, but not the highlight of our dining experience as in times past. We hope that switches back!

It was our second time to the restaurant. The food was great, but the service was not good. I had to ask for water multiple times during dinner service. The service was no where near a Michelin level.

The food was off the charts amazing. All 4 courses offered were diverse and it was hard to choose which to try because I wanted them all!
The service was excellent and the ambiance great. It was fabulous without being snobby or pretentious. Our best meal in Napa or San Francisco this week!

My fiancé and I were enjoying lunch on the patio after a day of massages and relaxation. We were chatting with one of the servers about the food and his personal experiences, when he brought up Greece (the country). That conversation blossomed into my fiancé and I deciding where to travel for our honeymoon....Greece! We hadn't previously thought of Greece, but I guess we were meant to meet that server that day!!

This is our 4th year in a row enjoying a long lunch mid wine tasting. The food is always on par (except we wish they would bring back The Lucky Pig on the menu). The outside seating is perfect for a beautiful fall day. Great wine list (of course), great selection of small plates as well as bigger lunches, if desired. We always enjoy the location, staff, and especially the food. Delish!

Went for Patio lunch in the middle of a wine tour. Tuna Polke was fantastic, my friend had the impossible burger (he said it was impossible to put down it was so good).

Service was perfect, casual but efficient and responsive.

Food was uneven . My date had two great dishes. I had one very good dish and a steak that sliced in half width-wise and the top of each piece was absolutely charred and the other side was raw - together it might have been the medium that I ordered, however, it was a poorly executed dish.
