This is the old Christian Brothers Winery. It is now owned by The Culinary Institute of America. To walk through this fantastic location where gallon and gallon of wine and brandies has been produced over the years and now to see this fantastic institution in its place is simply awesome. This is a must-see.

Former winery now a Culinary Institute of America restaurant. Student chefs prepare your meal under their teachers supervision. The food is wonderful and if you can try seating at the counter to take in the teaching experience.

You would never know this restaurant is run by culinary students. Service was superb, pacing was perfect, and the food so delicious I asked for the recipes. Book as early as possible and lunch is as good as dinner.

We were lucky enough to get reservations at the Greystone during our recent visit to Calistoga. (closed Sunday and Monday) If time permits and you love delectable foods made from fresh off the grounds produce then the Greystone is "a MUST" The aspiring chefs provide innovative menu choices that change regularly according to availability of local ingredients. The staff is... More

Disappointed that the CIA head office in New York is closing the CIA at Greystone and moving it elsewhere. Got to wonder what they were thinking or what facts they have that the rest of us don’t. 1 star for the NY run management Lunch. Prepared, cooked and served by the students at the Culinary Institute of America, this meal... More

Excellent food and service. Loved the various courses that we received but admittedly the portions were rather small. Not a problem unless you are going really hungry. Definitely would try it again.

Visited the restaurant because of the reviews and the fact that it is staffed by students of the CIA. Our previous experiences at similar venues have been very successful. The room was hot, the air conditioning did not keep up with the presence of the open kitchen. Unpleasant cooking smells pervaded the room The service was attentive and the server... More

The dishes are are presented beautifully! The scallop appetizer is really good. But as another reviewer reported, the portions are small. But that leaves room for dessert! Greg was a fabulous host! Choice of inside or outside dining. In July being outside was dining was very pleasant, with great views.

The food was excellent and the service was friendly yet professional. The restaurant is affiliated with the Culinary Institute of America. The food was up to extremely high standards as expected, and was not that expensive.

Their food is wonderful, it's a nice setting, and the service has always been friendly. I just feel that their menu is limited; the dishes all seem similar and there isn't much variety. It's probably best if your meal is going to centered around wine; for example if you picked out a bottle of wine and then selected the food... More
