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

On a warm late summer day the shaded patio dining was very appealing and was truly enjoyable. The service was good, if maybe a little snooty. The wine choices were excellent. The food was not the highlight of the experience. I had an heirloom tomato salad and the tomatoes were very mushy and one of them had brown spots on... More

My wife and I both had the five-course prix fixe tasting menu, with wine. Having seen the website beforehand, we thought we knew what we'd pick for each of the five courses. However, when we were seated the maitre d' informed us that unless we had any specific allergies or objections, each course would be a surprise. Which it was... More

Lunch at Bistro Laurent is served on the outdoor covered patio. In addition to a very nice regular menu, they also offer a "Bistro Special" that changes each week. On our last visit I had the rabbit in a mustard sauce with a side of perfectly prepared noodles; matched with a excellent glass of dry Rose, the meal was nothing... More

We were looking forward to some of the items we'd seen on the menu, but when we got there, the waiter suggested we try the chef tasting/wine pairing menu where you tell them what you don't like or are allergic to and the chef picks things out. He promised no two table would be the same and he was right.... More

We have been here 3 times for lunch over the past several years when we travel to Paso. Each time it has been delicious. I would highly recommend it. We look forward to when we can have dinner there.

We visited Bistro Laurent for dinner at the recommendation of our B&B host. We are so glad we did because it was truly one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. I say "experience" because it was more than just great French food. The host and the staff were impeccably trained. It is this combo of food, service... More

Bistro Laurent is the place we choose when we want that perfect meal. The service is so wonderful. Its as though they can read your mind when you need something. Ambiance is at its best ... beautiful, soft, romantic. All of our "big moments" are always celebrated at Bistro! personal, family and business !
