Very disappointing! Ahi tuna was bad as in old. Steak was grizzly not good. Strange mixed up combinations of ingredients. Felt bad for the server as other tables around were also not happy. He apologized and said “sorry the new chef is not very good”....More

We arrived for a late dinner starving and a little too late. I recommend eating before 9pm. The meal is small servings that the waiter referred to as Tapas. Veal cheeks were good but the prime rib was too thin. Still was good food and...More

My husband and I really enjoyed this place in the cute and quaint town of Calistoga. Yes, it definitely consists of only small plates (and the best dessert I have had in my LIFE -- chocolate cake with vanilla rum ice cream -- and the...More
