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.

First hope all are safe from the fires near Calistoga. We had dinner there before the fire.
The outdoor space was lovely and food was excellent but very expensive. Because the prices were very high and the Solage Resort is up to $1,000 a night stay, expectations for service level was understandably very high. Unfortunately the service was not up to our expected standard. It began by the receptionist trying to seat us at poor table location where there was a lot of walk by traffic. We declined the table and initially told many stay at their table for up to 3 hours, which was odd as a number of other diners were almost finishing and our reservation was at 8:45 PM, one of the last reservations. Then we were seated at a table I pointed out as open. Once there the waiter was polite and reasonably helpful on wine info and food prep. However after we were served we rarely saw him to fill up our water glasses or check on the meal. We do want an overly zealous wait person but we do want them to fill water, remove plates promptly when finished and ask if we need anything more. We especially expect this level of attention when dinner for two is in excess of $250 and at an establishment the caliber of Solange. We know the pandemic has affected worker availability but then again a resort where the room rates at $1,000 and up, management needs to insure that restaurant service is impeccable or if it cannot be then lower the rates for a proper cost to value. Again we hope the fire has not affected employees nor the property.

We recently had dinner at Solbar and it was divine. The ambiance was nice, but also felt a little hoity-toity (but I guess the adjoining hotel costs $750-$1000+/night, so what can you expect). We started with the grilled octopus - very tender and flavorful. Then I had the Petrale Sole with squash blossoms and my husband had the stuffed quail, which was probably his favorite meal of the entire trip.

We’ve been coming here since Solbar opened, and this was the best service we’ve ever had—in like 12 years! He has just moved back to the area and was very knowledgeable and attentive. The staff even anticipated our needs and brought more chips before we asked. We were raving to our friends for the first half hour how great things were going. Unfortunately, one cocktail was served with a chipped lip on the glass and our round of wines by the glass were delivered about 10 minutes after the main course, so the food got cold. Could have been an issue at the bar...It’s never a perfect 10 here, but we love the chef, mixologist and ambiance so much that we continue to come back despite the service missteps, which is unfortunate considering the high price of dining here.

Solbar was very nice the service was excellent. Food was very good but a bit on the high side for what you get. Very nice property but they are doing some construction so it took away from the ambiance. Nice place for lunch out of the way from the crowds.

Our absolute best dining experience in the valley! We were celebrating my sons 30th birthday and he thoroughly engaged with our server on food prep and ingredients. He is a budding chef and was so impressed with every dish we ordered. We loved the patio and hope to stay at the resort next year.

We had really inattentive service during dinner, they then gave us the wrong check and brought us a new one in our hotel room 2 hours later (it is our honeymoon) that was 50+ dollars more than what we signed for.

This restaurant is a great choice for those who enjoy fine dining and a pretty setting no matter how much it costs. We found the food to be fairly good, although not spectacular for a white tablecloth type of restaurant. The ambiance was exceptionally nice, especially if you go for the outdoor tables. The problem is the hideous overpricing of the menu. The prices are actually obnoxious. It's not like you can't afford the difference between the usual expensive fine-dining restaurant and this ... it's just a feeling you get of being ripped off for no good reason. We left feeling like we would never dine there again if we were locals. Since we were tourists, I am quite sure we will never eat there again which gives me some pleasure.

Solbar has been one of our favorite dining experiences in Napa Valley. Not only was the food inventive and delicious, but the service was incredible. Our waitress was one of the best we’ve ever had and had so much passion for her craft. She recommended so many wonderful dishes for us. We had such a lovely evening celebrating our anniversary and cannot wait to come back.

We love Solbar! We've gone for breakfast on our anniversary for the past two years. The food is amazing. This year we shared the Smoked Monterey Salmon and it was incredible. The restaurant is also beautiful. The fires where in fighting form when we were there and we still thought it was lovely. The service was also world class. The gave us some complementary champagne to celebrate our anniversary and were very helpful and attentive for our whole visit.

The service was wonderful, everyone was practically melting in the 110 degree heat, but the severs didn’t show how uncomfortable they must have been serving outside. We didn’t feel comfortable eating inside with COVID, even though it was open. The melon salad was incredible, the chicken Caesar delicious, but I wouldn’t recommend the chicken sandwich, way too much mayo.

My husband and I had lunch on a very slow day. The wait staff was friendly but distracted including forgetting to bring us silverware and we had to ask several times.

My husbands burger was good. I ordered a melons,strawberry, feta cheese salad. The feta cheese was uneatable it was rubbery and with no flavor. Terrible disappointing as I love Bulgarian feta cheese.
