Californian

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.

Kelly, Laura and Paul made our 25th wedding anniversary dinner so special! The service was better than we could have imagined. Kelly created personalized specialty cocktails for us that we fantastic! Laura brought out extra snacks between courses and poured sparkling wine for us all to toast our anniversary. Truly special!

The food tasted just fine but the portions were minuscule especially when you consider how expensive the food is here. I don't mind paying for a great experience, and indeed the location is lovely, but I don't want to leave hungry. We went home and made sandwiches. Disappointing to say the least.

This is a lovely place to meet friends for lunch. The food is great, service is good, ambiance is wonderful. But $50 for the least expensive bottle of Sauvignon blanc? How about an option for non-winesnobs!

The service was horrible and it took us over 2 hours to get our food. The servers did not bring us our drinks or our entrees until we had to walk to the host stand and asked for them multiple times. Other tables that got seated after us got their food before we did. Servers failed to refill our waters, bring out ice (asked 3x), bring us salt and pepper (asked 2x). When the food finally came out, no one checked in on us. This was overall a very bad experience for us.

Food was excellent. However, service was slow, likely due to reopening with lack of staff. Water glass is emptied without being filled. Would go back when restaurant is back to almost normal service.

So, so glad Solbar is open again. We actually just spent the weekend staying at Solage because we wanted to eat 6 meals at Solbar!! The food is wonderful, the patio is delightful and the staff is simply the best-totally accommodating and genuinely glad to see you. We have eaten thousands of meals in Italy and the fresh pasta with the truffles we just had at Solbar is in my top TEN over a period of over 25 years! Get in your car and go-now!

Excellent as always. What a treat to celebrate our anniversary here! The food was superb - Little Gem Salad, Chilled Asparagus, Rib Eye Steak with mushrooms, all perfectly prepared and so delicately flavorful. The housemade ice cream was decadently good but the big hit of the night for me was the Strawberry Trifle with Lemon Curd.... ohhh myyy. Memorable. The warm, friendly, knowledgeable service from Laura added so much to our experience. We can't wait for our next meal here.

We are addicted! We ate here 3 times in 2 days-every bite was perfect. The kitchen certainly knows how to deliver FLAVOR as well as present beautiful plates. The asparagus with the kumquats and pistachio arugula pesto was the best asparagus presentation I have ever had-want to have that for lunch every day. The chips, caviar and onion creme fraiche were over the top-our only complaint-we wanted so much more-could have made that our entire meal. Obviously I can't say enough about the food-so make a reservation today and see for yourself!

My meal was very ordinary. The server was great but the manager couldn’t have cared less and didn’t make any effort at all to apologize or make things right. Probably wouldn’t go again.

Very Good Food -- spanish octopus and risotto 4 mushrooms exceptional.
Good Ambiance - on a Thurs evening good vibe, not too crowded/noise
OpenTable Policy BAD - OT showed only two open slots for Thurs so I reserved.
There is a cancellation policy of $80 !! for less than 24h. Arrived and the place was EMPTY
Come on, that's lame! Fix your quotas, and reduce the cancellation fees.

Samuel was absolutely amazing. We had some unfortunate family news arise during our time here and he treated us like we were very present, even though we were not! We forgot our wines we had purchased earlier at wineries and he road his bike to catch up to us! He was amazing !!! We couldn’t rate our experience higher! Amazing experience!!!!

I was not blown away by the food at SOLbar, although my share was $130. I felt like the servers were constantly upselling us on fancy appetizers, fancy meals, and fancier wine. It was like being at a market in Marrakesh. I couldn't finish any of the dishes I ordered because they honestly... lacked flavor? Felt heavy? I don't know. The only thing I liked was the bread. I can't say I'll ever go back.

This review isn't entirely fair--The food is great, the service is excellent and the staff is delightful. BUT this is our last visit to Solbar because of their egregious cancellation policy. We'd booked for lunch for 4 on a February Tuesday--hardly a peak time--during a day of wine tasting. Over the weekend our party changed which wineries we'd visit resulting in us not traveling so far north in Napa Valley, so Solbar wasn't convenient. I called Monday morning to cancel and was told that was fine, but my credit card would be charged $100 (a credit card number is required when booking) because of their 48 hour cancellation policy. If it had been a dinner reservation, the penalty would have been $180! While I think this policy is beyond the pale on its face, what makes it really objectionable is its poor disclosure. I was told Open Table notifies customers of the policy when the reservation is made. Yes, it was disclosed, in the fine print on the bottom of the second page of the confirmation email. So I fault the restaurant for adopting such an outrageous policy and Open Table for not making its users better aware of it. I would think only a tiny fraction of their listed restaurants have such policies and that an infinitesimal number require 48 hour cancellation notice. The alert for this should be prominent. I discourage booking with Solbar until they adopt a more reasonable policy and/or make their customers better aware of it.

Food and service were excellent...the best....They remembered the birthday in our group and treated us very well. Food was fresh and dressed perfectly. They are remodeling, which we didn’t know, so there was some construction noise and outside seating was in a temporary location, but the excellent service made up for the missing ambiance. Always our go to choice when we want a relaxing setting with great food and service.
