The food was good and our waiter was great. The hostess was not, and made us feel like second class citizens as non-guests of the resort. Would not return.

We loved our dinner at Solbar. We were seated outside with a view of the pool. Two guys were there with a guitar and a bass and played some old tunes with a jazzy riff. Food and service were very good. Will go back!

We thoroughly enjoyed the food which was both extremely beautifully presented and presented a variety of flavors well put together. The gazpacho was just perfect in flavor and the duck was absolutely divine, so tender. The service was friendly and welcoming, however, they were clearly short of staff. The wait time to be able to order was a bit too long and our very lovely waiter had to excuse herself many times to run over to another table. While it did not impact us that much, it just gave a very hurried feeling when someone is excusing themselves because they have to tend to another table repeatedly. We also wish we had decided to sit inside. Inside is clearly the strength of this venue as it is really beautiful and has large openings to the outside. A blend of farmhouse and modern understated luxury in muted colors. It was a warm nice evening and we said we were interested in inside seating but were advised to sit outside. Unfortunately all the families with children seemed to sit outside and the furniture is more poolside furniture. So it made the ambiance more casual and we were celebrating a special occasion and should have opted for inside seating.
But the food was top notch and we will go back and try it again, inside and away from family vacation season.

We had a wonderful evening. The food was exceptional. Mike looked after us and he was very helpful and enhanced our experience. I would highly recommend the four course option.

The ambience was very napa. Out doors with uniquely designed heaters. As the evening cooled they came around and offered blankets which was a very special touch.

We finished the evening with an off the charts blueberry cheese cake.

I can't wait to go back

The atmosphere was delightful. They opened the windows near our table for a lovely breeze although there was a table with noisy children right in front of the dining room. They probably should have been sat near the pool away from the more refined dining room. Drinks were inventive, service was attentive and the food was delicious. The dining room design was soothing.

In Michelin Star restaurant, one would expect a reasonable dress code - no shorts, no flip flops. Casual dress only encourages casual behavior - loud people half sitting half laying on their chairs like in pub. Unfortunately, also choice of table cloth does not match the excellence of the food nor the lovely interior. Cocktail was served after pouring wine, gluten free bread offered but never made it only to learn later that somebody forgot to tell us the restaurant was out of it.
Other than bread (which is so easy to have in the freezer all the time), the food choices for celiac were excellent. Food at Solbar is always exciting as well as it's wine list. California population just needs to be a bit more educated about the basics of etiquette.

We really wanted to love Solbar...hoping it was a really off night. We heard great things so our expectations were high. My husband and I are easy going and rarely complain/submit reviews.

We were seated a little earlier than our reservation so that was nice. And then we waited...for water...to order...to receive each course. The odd pauses in service were really strange. Our nearby diners had similar experiences so at least we had company. One couple who arrived after us seemed to get VIP treatment from the Chef and staff so their experience was very smooth and pleasant. We had plenty of time to notice. They were gone before we received our main courses.

The staff seemed stretched between the outdoor and indoor tables and the kitchen seemed backed up. There was a wedding reception but it's not clear if that impacted the capacity. Our server was nice but disappeared a lot. Regardless, the awkward gaps in service and pacing of courses was not acceptable for this kind of establishment.

The food was good but not great. I ended with the cheesecake for dessert. Unfortunately, the burnt sugar crust was so hard I couldn't crack the surface with my spoon. Once i did break off a piece, it tasted like torch fuel. 😐

Our reservation was at 8. We ordered wine right away and it didn't get to the table until about 850. It also took about an hour for someone to turn the heat lamp on. Was pretty disappointing. We went to sams the night before and had an entirely different-- and awesome -- experience.

Always a special lunch spot for us and patio is dog friendly to. We drive out of our way to have lunch here, especially when we can sit outside. Menu has been tweaked a bit. Used to love the paillard salad, but the ahi sliders are awesome.

Solbar has a lot to offer. The dinner menu is inventive, with often luxurious ingredients presented in unexpected ways. (Think just-sweet melón gazpacho or black foot Spanish ham in ravioli-like dumplings.) A take on grilled octopus fell a bit flat, but overall the many courses we tried across our party were consistently excellent.

That solid quality in the meal made it all the more frustrating that the timing of service at nearly every turn was just...off. Nearly every course was marred by long intervals without attention, dirty dishes lingering as we wondered if maybe they were having problems in the kitchen. A glass of wine ordered to go with a second course took so long to materialize that it was nearly unwelcome when it arrived, though it became a welcome enough provision on the long journey to the third course.

At a lesser establishment these sorts of things are easily glossed over, but Solbar seeks to occupy a higher niche. An "off night" might also explain it away, but we experienced similarly long waits at breakfast twelve hours earlier. Whatever the cause, Solbar's service really hasn't yet quite measured up to its promise.

Maybe it's me, but I thought the food and value were lacking at least on the dishes we ordered. I know it is a a french michelin one star...so portions are smaller and dishes are more complex, but I found what we had to be overly flavored. The fish had a coconut milk type sauce that overpowered the delicate flavor of seabass....well for me:) We had two salads, the seabass and a risotto to share and were left feeling underfed. The risotto also had a overly powerful sauce that made the rice almost disappear in sauce. It was my birthday evening and we never even ordered desert as nothing appeared to be appropriate for a candle:) Still with very little food the bill was $140 before tip....high price I thought for the little we had. Fortunately we found the best icecream on main street in Calistoga that topped of the dinner perfectly!!!

Solbar is my new favorite restaurant in the valley. Our meal was perfectly prepared and a treasure trove of flavors. I had the sea bass which is a mild fish but it was taken to new heights with a base of corn, sweet green tomatoes, grapes and who knows what else. My boyfriend had the Wagyu beef with an abalone hash and that was delicious. Both our first courses were terrific.
The wait staff is very attentive and very knowledgeable about the dishes and the unique ingredients many of them have.
And they also had documented somewhere that I was allergic to ground black pepper. That's attention to detail.

We enjoyed the ambiance. The service experienced was OK. The waiter disappeared for long stretches. The wine and gazpacho were excellent. Nothing else on the menu really impressed us. The Duck was unique, but would not recommend it. In fact unique, but not very good might describe several of the items on the menus including the risotto. Given the price tag and revues we expected more. For a 300-400 dolar meal for a couple you can do better. If you want to go for some live music, drinks and gazpacho then I would recommend this establishment.
