It was a sunny day when I stopped for lunch in the dappled shade of the terrace, woth the soft babble of a waterfeature behind me. Food was great with friendly service. Wine. Obviously!

Ugh. (And this was our anniversary dinner). 4 stars for the food, subtract 3 stars for the service and scheduling. And they had a *lot* of people working. Never coming back, too many different points of failure. 1) Arrived at 7:05 for 7:30 reservations, kept telling us 5-10 more minutes, seated at 7:50. 2) Waiter came at 7:55. First glass of wine at 8:04. 3) Waiter finally took food order, came back 4 minutes later because of "terrible handwriting did we order halibut or snapper". How bad is your handwriting that you can't tell the difference? Clearly just didn't write it down. 4) I was miserably hungry, asked for some bread. Other guy comes by 5 minutes later with a cornbread muffin that's 1cm diameter, races off before I can ask for a second. 5) Took forever to get a water refill as the water guy was racing around. 6) Dessert ordered at 9:10 despite us attempting to eat quickly (see above, phenomenally hungry). Meal over at 9:40. Food was great, but we were so annoyed with the slow service that it didn't matter. We had carrot salad, agnolotti (mini raviolis), and the halibut. Or was it snapper :-) What was supposed to be an awesome anniversary dinner was instead just another overpriced meal. I never pull out my calculator, I gave 15% to the penny (assuming tip sharing, kitchen didn't deserve to suffer). We should have stuck with Brannans. Food isn't as good, atmosphere is noisier but we'd have been able to enjoy our food as they have their act together.

Farm to table is where it's at when you think of Solbar and Calistoga for the most part. Usually packed for dinner during the weekends. A breath-taking patio with small market lights that hang from the trees with view of that world class Soalge Pool is what makes for a perfect summer afternoon/dinner experience. We arrived past the standard dinner time (9 pm is a bit late for us but no complaints by any means) since that's when there was a free reservation time and were seated indoors. Indoors, we were met with a lovely indoor fireplace that made it feel more cozy and relaxing indoors. Their menu changes daily so that adds to the fun of this place as most of their menu revolves around what is in "season." Our dining place took place on a Saturday evening about 2 weeks ago. Their service to us was extraordinary despite feeling that my husband and I felt a bit under dressed dining there. What we raved about after dinner: chilled sweet corn coup and the dollarhide ranch suncrest peaches salad. The corn soup had a good mix of bits of avocado and radish that gave it the punch you'd want in a chilled summer soup. And, the peach salad had a rather small portion of prosciutto to not make it sustainable enough to have just that alone...the lavender-honey vinaigrette and the parmiagano mousse (yes! mousse texture!) in that salad made this salad interesting enough to order again. Our main courses weren't as awesome as our appetizer/first course. I remember taking note that they offered a "poultry" option, a lamb option, a steak option, one vegetarian option (which is what I decided to go with) and a pork roast option. Ambiance: Low lit lighting, each dining table had a cute candle atop it. Wines: very good local Napa & Sonoma wines. Recommendation: Sit outside for their "cocktails" only area and wait to see if you can get a table outside. Best for the wine country+spa dining experience.

I love Solbar. I've been here three times with my wife. We've eaten brunch, lunch and dinner. Solbar is part of Solage, a spa in Calistoga. There is incredible outdoor and indoor dining. The outdoor dining, on a sunny day, is without compare. The indoor dining is equally incredible. The inside has large comfortable tables with high ceiling and several incredibly beautiful large oil paintings by a local artist named Wade Hoefer. The food is incredibly innovative (look up the menu), fresh, tasty (very organic) and well prepared. The presentation is incredible.

The Calistoga hills are an awesome setting when enjoying the variety of local wines. I was really pleased with the food and the service. Highly recommend for celebrations!

We sat at the bar and had a great dinner with drinks. Ask for Kelly to be your bartender, couldn't be any nicer and knows the menu like the back of his hand.

We had breakfast, which was good, but not outstanding. There are definitely better places to have breakfast in the area. The service was ok, not as good as I expected.

The place was full on a Tuesday (perhaps due to fried chicken special night), but our meal and service were also special. Hot and cold Dungeness crab starters were excellent. The vegetarian angioloti as well as Mary's chicken a al pancha with house Andouille sausce were superb. Beingets with creme Anglaise for dessert were perfect. The wine list is extensive and well chosen, with many local producers represented. All in all, a delightful evening.
