We came here for an early dinner and were ushered to a table right next to the fireplace. Our waiter was friendly, allowing substitutions to the menu items when requested. Everything was fresh and nicely presented. We were only sorry that we were not there on a night when they have a piano player offering entertainment.

Brannon's is a go to, "good" restaurant in Calistoga. Large servings, good service, good food. Nothing spectacular but always consistantly good. Worth a visit.

Wine tasting with friends in Napa we ended up at this place and, Oh My God, they have a delicious strawberry lemonade with ginger; their salads are also so nicely served and delicious. The place is very elegant and the servers very quick to help you. I will totally come back to Brannan's.

Brennan's has been better in the past. It's still high price, but neither the food nor the service justify that. The wine and after dinner drink list is long (and heavy on high- priced items), but both my first selections of wine and whisky were not available. We ordered salad to share, and were not even given a spoon to... More

Brannan's Grill never fails to deliver a fantastic time. Everything on the menu is great. Wines are fantastic. Desserts yum. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are satisfied in every way. We can't go to Calistoga without a stop at this restaurant.

Great experience. The restaurant had a great atmosphere with warm dark wood. We sat at the bar like we always do. Looking at the dinner menu both of us settled on the same entree. The lamb chops with braised lamb was fantastic. We substituted Brussels for the escarole and we're not disappointed. The staff was very attentive and helpful. We... More

Food was okay, but not for the price. We were told a few candied pecans would be $17.00, and the server was embarrassed. We will look for a better place next time.

Dear 254grhs, I wish you'd provided more information in your comments since you claim that you were quoted $17 for candied pecans. We do serve that item on our salad which is $10 and would have happily provided more if you had requested them. I'm sorry, but I need a bit more information to accurately address your concern. Thank you... More

Food was good. Good steak but the service was lacking. We had to ask for bread and then also for bread plates. Maybe an off night for the waiter but the atmosphere and food were good.

Made a reservation shortly after arriving at our hotel. Very friendly and able to accommodate us. The restaurant itself was lovely. Candlelight and dark woods and leather made for a relaxing dining experience. Unfortunately , the night we were there was short staffed and our server was difficult to track down. A manager stopped by a time or two to... More
