What a fabulous Napa Valley experience. Lovely and cozy setting. Stylish but also laid back. Thank you for taking care of our party of 6 in the driving rain.
Both the Bolognese pasta and the Mary’s chicken was excellent. Couldn’t have enjoyed the food more. Place was busy but server was attentive and friendly
Everything was absolutely wonderful. The food was beyond delicious everything we ordered was fantastic.
The food was absolute uneatable. I asked for lightly cooked shrimp. It came 3 precooked and just awful. My husband's meatballs were hard with canned tomato paste sauce; no bread served. A totally inelegant meal. The server was stone cold and unapologetic. Very disappointed. We cannot figure out why this restaurant is highly rated. We were not impressed.
Hostess and wait staff were excellent! We sat outside on the porch which was lovely, however the heater was not adjustable, it was either on or off. When on, it became extremely hot. When off, the cold set in quickly. Although the menu was somewhat limited, our appetizer and entrees where flavorful and well prepared. It was surprising that, even though they have a full liquor license, they limit there patrons to only 4 speciality drinks, no other mixed drinks are available. Their wine by the glass selection was limited to just 5 or 6 choices. Our dinner was modestly priced and will revisit their menu before our return.
Loved the Bolognese! Delicious!
Disaster - service, food, attitude. So many good options in the region, this definitely isn’t one of them.
Absolutely delicious and great service! Patio was nice and had heaters for the cool evening.
Wonderful vegetarian options. Lasagna was delicious and bread pudding was amazing!
1st time dining at Lovina and they did not disappoint! I changed dining time and they easily accommodated my request and was able to sit outdoors and enjoy the great weather. Food was superb, I enjoyed dining there, but I regret not having room for dessert!
Good food, attentive service. Portions just right, good wine list.
Amazing food and service. I love Lovina❣️
Very accommodating for our kids.
Magical eve on the outdoor terrace. Perfect seating, sunset, and service. From the apps to dessert, everything was impeccable. We started with mushroom polenta bites. Followed by a flawless Ceasar salad. The Romaine hearts were the freshest ever and the presentation totally balanced by just enough but not too many leaves and croutons. Hubs had their scrumptious bolognese, which did not disappoint. Pasta was perfect al dente. He had it "dirty" with truffle butter and cheese. The warm duck confit and kale salad was spot on for the season. The mini malted milk balls on the Sundae Funday were so creative. Staff were absolutely amazing--totally responsive, cheerful without pouring it on too much. We've been dining in Calistoga post tastings for a dozen years and Lovina is such a needed and welcome addition. Please visit and help this wonderful restaurant thrive.
Goodness, what a sweet review! Thank you, that made my day. Best, Jen Bennett, owner, Lovina
Really lovely outdoor dining experience, good food.
Cannot stop thinking about their bolognese! The people and atmosphere here are amazing, but it's their bolognese (dirty) that continues to call us back.
This is a MUST GO TO place if you are visiting Calistoga. The food is fantastic and our waitperson (Jordan - I think) was incredible. Every recommendation she made was perfect.
We brought our own wine but also bought a bottle from their great wine list.
Don't miss this place.
Everything was great except for the outdoor heater function on the upper outdoor porch. We loved sitting there, but the overhead heater was much too hot, and apparently is not adjustable. Changing that feature would be a great idea. Most importantly though, the food and service were terrific. Highly recommend!
Loved everything about this place. We had a 7:15 reservation but they were able to seat us at 6:15. Excellent service by three great women and a lovely host. HIGHLY recommend the mushroom risotto with prawns added. Lasagna was perfect vegetarian fare and fed us the next night as well. Polenta bites and sourdough bread were lovely appetizers and the Hot Mess (sub vanilla gelato) a perfect dessert.
A wonderful place for dinner if you ever visit Calistoga. The food was exceptional and the servers were very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We never felt rushed and really enjoyed our meal.
Excellent food and service in a quiet, well-appointed environment.
Charming, great location. The food was exceptional. Calistoga has many great places to eat and this one is right at the top. No corkage Wednesday is a nice touch too.
great food and ambience sitting outside on the patio
Ingrid the wait person is a gem. And Lovina feels like a true neighborhood restaurant, almost like it's out of someone's house when you are sitting outside. We all (3) had pasta and each was delicious. And love the Wednesday night special half-priced bottles of wine offered, one in each color. Delightful!
Great food and service. Absolutely loved the ambiance of sitting outside
Wondering experience. Everything ordered was fresh and well seasoned. Dessert was even delightful.
The food was delicious. The atmosphere was quiet and quaint on the patio. The only negative was that they had a mostly empty patio with many empty tables but they put the 4 sets of customers they had right next to each other instead of spreading them out. I felt that was insensitive to the diners.
There was o e piece of duck in the duck confit kale salad….super skimpy for the price.
Had a great dinner experience on the new patio. We had a little one in a stroller with us and they were very accommodating. Great food and service.
Everything about our experience was perfect! The service was amazing! Thank you Taylor! The food was incredible! We will be back.
Everything was wonderful! We highly recommend this restaurant.
We were pleasantly surprised on this find! We had seating indoors in the renovated house. The food was yummy and the service was just right. I highly recommend!
We love this local restaurant.
it is always great and service is always perfect.
The menu, meal and service was all first class. Thanks, Lovina
Our waiter was so pleasant and friendly. The food was spectacular. Made for a wonderful birthday dinner.
Absolutely excellent service and food! The GM and servers were friendly and helpful. Our special occasion was made perfect by the delicious food and service. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will be returning again and again!
In the Napa area for several days and had some great dining experiences but this was by far the best. The flavors that were layered I. Each dish were unparalleled it is very unpretentious with great service. Can’t wait to return.
The food was unbelievable. I had the rib eye steak cooked the best I have ever had. The prawns pasta was also a hit. A must try is the bread pudding. Our server was so amazing I would recommend this place whole heartedly.
We sat in a separate room (8 in our party). Food was good, drinks were ok if you want wine. -we didn’t want wine and they didn’t have full bar. We want to pork chops that they used to have…wish that’d been on menu. Everyone’s meal was very good though.
Food was very good, just right portions; ambience and decor are pleasing - small rooms made for intimate experience. Service is excellent!
