Pretty sure that these reviews contributing to the high rating were mostly from its earlier status as a steak house, perhaps with other management as well. Because there was almost no one there when we went last week (all other restaurants that were open were...More

What a pleasant surprise. While staying at Indian Springs Resort, we walked to this restaurant to have our New Year’s Day Dinner. Great small plates with great variety so that anyone can find several dishes they will like.

We enjoyed small plates tapa style, excellent wine selection and the festive atmosphere. We ordered different dishes to share. My favorites were the Ñoquis, Moroccan Lamb Ribs and Beet Salad

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

I was visiting Calistoga for a friends birthday. I recommended Brennan’s Grill because of a past experience. At that time the place was booming with people with a long wait list and the menu was wonderful. I had chosen a smoked salmon rigatoni dish I...More

What a wonderful meal. We had heard good things about the menus from the new chef (Colin Curtis from Willis Wine Bar). We were not disappointed. In fact - it was amazing. We sampled several small plates and they were ALL good. The one that...More
