Flatiron Grill, situated in the heart of downtown Calistoga on Lincoln Avenue, opened its doors in the Fall of 2001. Having restored the interior, recreated the private dining space and completely changing the atmosphere, the FlatIron Grill has developed a dining destination for Calistogans and day-trippers alike.
Did not live up to expectations nor did they try to do so. Service and food were sorely lacking in this upscale restaurant. Management seemed indifferent. Probably a good place for large parties however if you are a local couple you would be better served to walk on by.
We had our rehearsal dinner here in September and it was absolutely amazing!! We chose steak & salmon as the entrees and all of our 35 guests were raving about them. The steak was incredibly flavorful and the salmon melted in your mouth. My fiancé & I also really enjoyed the salads and the sides of perfect mashed potatoes and steamed spinach. Not surprisingly, their wine was very delicious as well. As an aside, a cool feature of FlatIron is that they match corkage fee – so, if you buy a bottle from them, you can also open a bottle you bring without paying a corkage fee. ;-)
The service here was equally impressive. I mainly dealt with Cory when planning the party. He is very low-key while at the same time professional and put my fiancé & I at ease. I'm not sure how the kitchen and waiters did it, but the entrees were served piping hot ALL at once!!! If you've ever been to a big dinner at a medium-sized restaurant, you know just how rare this really is! :)
The ambience was totally perfect. The back banquet room has perfect dim lighting and plenty of space for everyone.
Truly, I can't thank Cory and his team enough. We were so happy and had a fabulously fun time with our friends and family that night.
