About Calistoga

While not-so-sunny Scotland may feel like a million miles away from the west coast of the USA, Calistoga radiates a Californian charm, bringing a wee bit of sunshine to the streets of Edinburgh. At this laidback restaurant tucked away down Rose Street Lane North, dishes inspired by the Golden State are served up alongside an array of speciality Californian wines. A popular spot in the New Town, we recommend booking your table at Calistoga in advance!

As always a lovely meal with great service. Love the Californina wines too! We were on a Itison Voucher, asking it exceptionally good value, but come regularly on the a la carte too.

Amazing wine, lovely food, excellent service, casual atmosphere, no guns or mental presidents. This was a lovely night out. If only all of the USA were like this!

Great food with something for everyone and an amazing wine selection. Easy to access location though not always easy for first-timers to find. I never come away disappointed!!

It is always a total delight to spend an evening at Calistoga. Gordon is a charming and attentive but unintrustive host. The menu interesting and presentation of the food excellent. I never have any hestitation in recommending Calistoga; it is always a great evening. It is the only place I have ever had my push-bike secured safely for me. Thank you Gordon and colleagues.

This restaurant has a good atmosphere, when busy as it was on Saturday evening they should invest in maybe one more waiter. The food was delicious, my main was the wild boar and chicken wellington, starter was Thai prawns, pudding was peanut and pistachio brownie, yes all mouthwatering stuff. There were two things that I thought needed attention, the portion sizes were a touch miserly, not very Californian at all. Had I known that I'd have ordered some sides, that however, would have added more to the total bill which was already a touch on the high side. All in all, I would recommend and will definitely go back. Well done Calistoga.

Calistoga provide an interesting and varied menu with exemplary service. Of particular interest for the wine lover those who don't partake are more than satisfied. We always enjoy our dining experience at Calistoga and look forward to returning. It is especially good value for pre theatre.

Always a pleasure to visit Calistoga, food delicious and the wine was good too. I took a friend who hadn't been before and she too enjoyed her meal. The restaurant is tucked away is an unassuming side street , even the taxi driver didn't know where it was. Had to give him the postcode! Well done to Gordon and his team.

Food beautifully cooked, well served in a relaxing atmosphere. Wine selection great. Liked the wine recommendations on the menu to compliment each of the food choices. The wine recommended to go with the sweet was just a dream. From the polite and friendly welcome to the helpful ordering our taxis home this was a lovely experience. Thank you. Calistoga

We had a great night and meal at Calistoga. We were a party of 9 celebrating a friends 60th birthday. The service was excellent and everyone enjoyed their meal. My lamb was slightly more bloody than I would have liked but that's down to individual preference. The restaurant staff were friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. I would recommend this restaurant. A good night out was had by all!
