I had their Ahi tuna tartar appetizer, which was awesome! It came with a flavorful but subtle orange sauce and homemade seeded crackers. I had an open-faced wild chanterelle mushroom sandwich and butternut squash and kale quiche (spiced with nutmeg). Yum! Finally I had a hazelnut chocolate torte for dessert, which was large enough for three of us to share!... More

Enjoyed the onion soup and fennel salad. Soup perfectly prepared, onions delicious. Partner had the catfish sandwich. Tasty and not over breaded. Service top notch.

Excellent, simple, well-prepared food with very friendly competent service and a relaxing atmosphere. One night earlier, we went to the very famous Solbar in Calistoga and spent twice (literally!) the money for food not nearly as good. If you want pretentious "cuisine" prepared by a sou chef from someone else's recipe go to Solbar, if you want real food prepared... More

Pricey. A bit pretentious. Friendly, but amateur service. I definitely felt I got a lesser level of attention as a visitor compared to the regular locals who came in for dinner. The burger was delicious, and the wine as well. Value for money was just OK.

My husband I had a light dinner here and were so impressed by the service and the food. We only had trout salads and onion soup, plus split a mac and cheese and everything was fantastic. The bread they serve is so fresh and delicious We really loved this place-they seem to be very serious about their food and the... More

We chose this restaurant after doing a quick search of 'hotel recommended' locations. About 1/3 occupied with diners and bar patrons at 8:30 at night. We were the last seated in the restaurant. We ordered a Duck terrine for an appetizer, a salad, the french onion soup and the day's special of sweet potato gnocchi's. The terrine was good but... More

Excellent menu - beautifully cooked and presented, with excellent service. Sit at the bar - or a more formal dining room or even outside. Moules, fries, branzino all top of the line. steaks, stew, you choose depends on the day.

I love this restaurant and my friends and I like that they don't close midday when we have gone to a movie and need a glass of wine to discuss it. Love their mussels and their burgers, and the sole. Actually hard to find something I don't enjoy there.

Thank eliz39
