I had the incredible pork loin entrée with haricot vert and browned (interesting touch!) gnocchi. My husband had the English vegetable pot pie with a frisee salad with a fried egg that was also really delicious. The waitress recommended some Villa Creek red blends that went perfectly with our entrees. It was a very memorable meal and we would definitely... More

That's the way to do it. The food was good and service too. But the Duck Mole Nachos are a thing to behold. Highly memorable and worth a visit just for these. They also have a draft beer that is the last brew Firestone/Walker makes off-label.

1st night in Paso. We happened to nail it with Villa Creek. Heather was super friendly. We had a special farro salad, the sea bass and the linguine w tuna, which was outstanding. The Rose wine, by Mark Adams, was well priced and delish. While the restaurant was on the quiet side, Mark Adams then set up with his band... More

Very enjoyable bistro located in the middle of the downtown area of Paso. Wine by the bottle a bit expensive but more reasonable by the glass.

Just spent three days in PR. Asked around for local's to recommend a favorite steak dinner spot. Website showed braised short ribs. Villa Creek came up multiple times as having good steaks and a really good margarita. Made a reservation for four of us at 7:00 on a Thursday night. Not at all what we thought. Selection of steaks was... More

While highly-rated, our first, and last visit was a disappointment. Young woman at front desk had attitude and poor customer skills. Sat us at front table near busy and loud lounge with wind when either door was opened. She was unhappy when we asked to be moved and seated us alone in the back room. Menu was very odd for... More

Villa Creek was recommended to us at one of the wineries we visited. It was Taco Tuesday and I think all the tacos were $2.50. We ordered from the bar menu. Four of us split 3 appetizers and we each ordered tacos. The Hatch chile and Shepherd's plate were our favorites. The Not Nachos comes with duck that seemed too... More

Paso is very popular for eating out, and we almost didn't get anywhere as we hadn't pre-booked. Got in here by chance. It is a little pricey, however that's the same in most of the busy restaurants in this small town. Food was pleasant enough, staff polite and helpful.

During our dinner, we were greeted by several staff including one of the Partner/Owners. All were super-friendly. Nice décor using uprooted grapevines--very unique. Food was great, but nothing overwhelmed us. Not bad and we would visit again.
