The previous reviewer is correct, the restaurant is closed, which is unfortunate. I thought it added an extra dimension to the restaurant scene between BBQ and the gourmet wine restaurants.

We had eaten there a few months ago....thought it was delicious, but extremely over-priced. When the price of two tiny dishes is the same as a full meal at one of the many fine restaurants down the street, there's a problem. Anyway, we walked past there yesterday (while on our way to another restaurant) and it is no longer there.... More

Went to try this place out after hearing all the amazing great reviews. All I can say is the food sounds better then it actually is when it finally makes it to your table. The food is way not worth the high dollar price tag. When ordering beer here also be warned they are pricey and not often listed in... More

This was a truly remarkable dining experience. We loved the modern decor, the unique paintings throughout and the service was second to none. The ribeye by the way was ridiculously good as was just about everything else we tried. They also had a great wine selection, both imported and local varieties.

Beautifully presented and delicious! Tea smoked scallops were amazing! The bartender matched it with a local semillon that matched perfectly. Highly recommended!

The food here is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach. All the dishes are presented beautifully and the taste is just so amazing and multi-layered. We sat at the bar and our bartender was just great and offered wonderful beer and pairing ideas for our multiple dishes. The one thing that I will say about this... More

Our first time here, and we were extremely impressed. The "tapas" are not too small -- perfect, in fact, to share between two. Every single dish we had was innovative, with multiple layers of taste and texture, worth one's full attention. Particularly impressive: the tuna sashimi, tea-smoked scallops, the stunning ribs, and their award-winning mac and cheese (yes -- a... More

We just had an amazing wine tasting from around the world with a white watermelon amuse-bouche and pork rib appetizer. Wonderful collage of flavors!

Spent an anniversary weekend in the area and loved this place. Just had appetizers, the pork belly and the tiradito, both were really great. I will come back next time we're in the area.

Just had dinner at Fenomenal in Paso Robles. This new restaurant on the town square does not disappoint. Despite being late on a Tuesday night the service and food were outstanding. It's not exactly traditional but gosh darnit it just tastes great. My husband and I enjoyed all sorts of tapas including the shrimp civiche, avocado tartar, pork belly, rabbit,... More
