Laurent is always my special occasion treat. The pairings are always done perfectly and the selection of wine and bubbles is hard to beat. I always order the pairing menu so I can try a little of everything and never leave hungry or thirsty.

I love Paris for its bistros. The French bistro has now been perfected in Paso Robles, CA at Bistro Laurent. For all those "foodies" who crave Steak and Pomme Frites, you will be very pleased with Bistro Laurent. Paso Robles, CA, an ascendant food and wine "capital," retains its old world charm as Bistro Laurent (and other excellent restaurants) form... More

One of our favorite places for lunch. Outdoor seating when weather cooperates, or a cosy indoor setting. A nice balance on the limited lunch menu, with a weekly Bistro Special - - each time we have had the Special it has been outstanding in flavor (and less than $20).

Went for lunch as we had received good revues on the restaurant. A real French Bistro atmosphere. Ordered glasses of a local Viognier and a French Sancerre while were ordered - both excellent. We shared a Crispy Shrimp Salad, which came on separate plates, and was ample for two as there were 2 large shrimp on each plate. The salad... More

Each table has a different menu. They check for food allergies and if there is anything you won't eat and then go to town. My girlfriend said it was one of her top 3 meal experiences in Paso and i have to agree. We have eaten many amazing meals here, but we will remember last night's meal for the rest... More

This is our special occasion restaurant. We always order the tasting menu accompanied with wine. The sommelier will ask if you have any allergies or dislike any particular food and based on that the talented chefs will prepare you four or five courses (depending on which you ordered). Every time everything has been wonderful. If you order the wine add-on... More

A warm night at the end of October dining outside under the stars with your friends; what could be better? Just add Bistro Laurent to the sentence for perfection. The chef’s choice for dinner: now that bespoke of a challenge to our diverse group and some doubts if we could be pleased. We were and extremely so. Service was perfect,... More

Unbelievable food. So thankful they were open all else in town closed. The chef was so gracious and let us order anything at 10 pm at night.
