Perfect but Pricey

An amazing restaurant in Paso Robles, just off the central park in downtown. Fabulous cuisine, wonderfully spiced and prepared, and you will pay for it.

We ate with friends there and the service was great but I ordered the Boar and it was tough and tasteless. All other meals were good. I sent mine back with not trouble and got a small pizza, it was just OK.

We love good food and enjoy exploring new tastes. This restaurant came highly recommended and was a big disappointment.

Walked in at 2:45, kitchen closed 2:30-3:00. Couldn't order from 3:00 menu for drinks or food. Per bartender nothing else in town for sandwiches. B/S!! We walked across the street to Odyssey World Cafe, great food and friendly staff. Welcome to Paso

Get here! Amazing and innovative cocktail program - it's no SF or NY, but it's up there. Lot's of great small batch liquors and accompaniments. Food look out of this world and we were very sad we did not get to grab a bite here. Hopefully next time. We can't say enough great things about this spot. Make a reservation... More

Nice dinning place with good food and very friendly staff. The location is excellent and the general feeling is good. I would suggest that the prices are somewhat high.

Absolutely negligent of full disclosure of their menu with dangerous disregard for food allergy awareness. Asked if their grass fed lamb burger was also grass finished, food server said yes. Came back to order and asked hostess what else might be in the burger patty, she told me nothing but lamb. I got the order to go and one bite... More

I can't give many details about this place. My husband and I went to Artisan only once and ordered a pizza and a salad to split. The pizza was dry and almost devoid of flavor even though it had prosciutto and olives on it. It contained little or no sauce and not much cheese. The salad was better, but still... More

I eat here at least once every time I am in town. Great place! Make a reservation or sit at the bar! I am not too picky and am not a foodie but I have never been disappointed.
