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.

We throughly enjoyed our dinner and really enjoyed being able to sit outside in comfortable surroundings. Our waitress explained everything to us and helped guide our selections. The food was delicious ,and the choices on the menu were varied enough to satisfy most diners’ desires. Because we were not rushed , we had a most relaxing and satisfying experience !

Very refreshing and lightly seasoned beet/grapefruit salad for a hot day. Crisply cooked Crab po’ boy sandwich and house chips. Decor is crisp with nice lines, well lit with large windows to bring in the outdoors. Would dine there again and again.

Food was overpriced and not very good. I ordered the pasta and got literally 4 pieces of agnoletti. I'm not a very big eater but even I was unimpressed with how my food was plated. A big rip off for $35

High hopes but didn’t hit the mark. Pastries were delicious, coffee was okay, eggs benny was watery and had far too much kale. Duck has was decent but I didn’t love the hollandaise, it was very creamy.

Solbar is doing what seems so hard for many restaurants, always changing yet remaining fresh, exciting, very well executed. The meal was delicious, wine suggestions right on target and a lovely ambiance on the outdoor patio. Thank you Solbar for maintaining your excellence.

We sat outside next to a waterfall fountain that created a sense of calm and cool. The food was spectacular. The service impeccable. There was no rush, service was just-in-time. The chef is remarkably creative with the food combinations and presentation. The restaurant is part of a resort that would be a delightful place to stay. Highly recommended!!

We’ve always had a wonderful experience at Solage but tonight we were both very disappointed. Service was awful. First course orders never arrived. As we were eating the entrees, our server finally made a call back. Unbelievably when we told him about the missing dishes, he returned to the table and said “The chef says he sent them out”. Okay that can only mean one of two things - we were lying or we ate the food but couldn’t recall doing so. After asking for the check our server brought it without a single word. An appropriate ‘I’m very sorry we didn’t provide the exceptional service Solage is known for. I sincerely hope you’ll give us another opportunity to do better’. Don’t know if we’ll be back.

We would like to point out our very Professional server Roxanne, and the rest of the staff whom were very Welcoming, Warm and Efficient.
The food we as usual, was Outstanding .
Solbar will continue to be our special go to place.
The Great part it is only an hour or so from our house

Solbar offers great service, one of the outstanding outdoor terraces, and an ever-expanding menu. Few venues can match the beauty of dining outdoors, the Solage pool nearby, the water treatments. We have loved Solbar since it first opened -- it has only improved from th4e high level then to the higher level today.

Not to be missed

Solbar never disappoints!
The service is ALWAYS perfect, and the manager is always present.
It is a beautiful restaurant, and the food is simply divine: fresh seafood, as if it just came off the boat/crispy fries/salads that are not only healthy, but beyond yummy/and of course, the Impossible Burger, which Solbar does better than any other restaurant!
Our favorite place in all of wine country.
The only down side is it isn't in Santa Rosa, where we live.

My one complaint is there was a party of 4 near us, who were there before us, but while we were there they had four rounds of drinks. Two of the party got quite noisy, one woman stormed off in anger over something, all alcohol driven. Is there a limit to how much alcohol people can order?
Other small complaint -- menu did not allow me many choices as I eat gluten free.

Wonderful remodel of formerly austere space, now softened with banquets and gray palettes. Food was uniformly excellent, amazing truffled tagliatelle, delicious desserts. Service a bit too self-conscious, but pleasant and efficient. Tops in the Valley!
