We returned to Paso Robles for the weekend and were excited and nervous about revisiting Bistro Laurent for dinner since our last visit was so fantastic. Well the second time around was JUST as fantastic. We have dined all over the world (including France) and Bistro Laurent remains one of our top 3 worldwide. It remains one of the best... More

First time visiting this restaurant. We had heard so much about it so decided to visit. The Host (also the manager) was pushy and made us feel rushed (we got there at 5:30 PM and the place was empty). The Rissotto tart was stale tasting and oilly. While dinning, every person that came in was told about the tasting menu... More

We have had difficulty finding a great meals in Paso in the past. So we were a little reluctant to stay there again after visiting our favorite winery to pick up some wine for home. But we thought we'd give it another try and were quite pleased. This has a French inspired menu with some local and french wines. The... More

Good and imaginative treatment of food. Second only to Villa Creek across the street. Haven't visited in a while becasue we have so little money to spend on restaurants.

This is as authentic French you can get, and to think it is in a Western California town. We had a late lunch and enjoyed our appetizer of avocado crab salad along with a local pinot noir and a french wine. Our entrees were so delicious, we missed the cutoff for lunch the day before, so cut our wine tasting... More

Eaten at many continental restaurants. Services was reasonable, prices were high, food was okay. Did not knock my socks off. Would not go back, but it was NOT a bad meal

We had a fabulous dinner at this charming bistro in downtown Paso Robles. Service was excellent and each dish and wine brought out for our 4 course dinner was amazing. Because it was Halloween and there was a large group there, it was a little loud, but we enjoyed seeing the costumes!

We had a unique and truly memorable dinner at this beautiful and intimate restaurant on the main square in Paso Robles. From beginning to end, the 4-course tasting menu with wine was scrumptious and the service impeccable. Ian Adamo, maître d’/sommelier, and the wait staff appeared at just the right times and were friendly and helpful. The tasting menu, which... More

Incredible value and they really take care of you here. Classic French inspired but not overwhelming. Perfectly prepared with inspired wine pairings.

We had high expectations of this restaurant which were not realized. The tasting menu shown on the website & on the menu is not the tasting menu available. They tell you that it will be a "surprise" and that each meal is different. No thanks. My Bistro salad tasted as if it had bottled dressing on it. I chose the... More
