We had a good casual meal at the Hydro Grill. It was relaxing and our server was attentive! The veggie sandwich was tasty and huge! Thank you!

Four of us had mid-afternoon lunch. Favorable responses to tacos and splitting a delicious BLT with avocado. One had a salad which she sent back because it was too vinegary and she left the restaurant. The 3 of us were happy with our food and drinks.

Great lunch spot with a diverse menu and some of the best burgers anywhere (they recently won a "best burger in the region" contest). Garlic fries are addictive! Good wines-by-the-glass, very good salads.

This was a return visit to experience an early dinner/late lunch, as we have only been here for breakfast. It was not crowded and a rainy day. We selected the French Dip Sandwiches and were not disappointed. Nice soft roll and a side of mild horseradish. We got the French Fries offered with the option of a salad or other... More

Had a good breakfast on recent trip to Calistoga, right around corner from our hotel. Good coffee and juice. Menu has lots to choose from, and I chose the apple sausage and polenta which were both very good. Prices average for area. Service was very good. Didn't enjoy flies that came in when door was opened so I wouldn't suggest... More

Hydro Grill, great dinner spot, and have eaten at the grill before, however today for breakfast might need some improvement. I ordered the Fritta, and spouse ordered the ham and eggs. The ham was a huge slice and eggs were fresh. However the Fritta was cold, it took awhile to get the servers attention, and advised it was cold and... More

We stopped in for a bite to eat on a rainy November day and it was very good. We opted to split the advertised "Best Burger" in Calistoga and it did not disappoint. The service was very good, the fries were good and the cheddar used on the burger was real quality Cheddar. I am a weirdo that asks for... More

Every time I'm in Calistoga, I eat lunch at the Hydro Grill. I always get the same thing - a Hydro BLT and some Sergio Mottura Orvietto wine. The Hydro Grill is the only retail establishment I've found that serves a Mottura wine, so I can't pass it up. My sense is that this is a place the locals love,... More

The food is very good and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. If you order wine by the bottle, check the bottle before they open it as the wine list hasn't been updated and is very misleading with some items. The prices are good and the staff is very attentive.
