Excellent dining with a varied menu allowing you many choices to match your mood. The Bar is very nice. The dining room is good for cold weather, but they have great outdoor seating both in front on the street, as well as in back in an enclosed patio.

We love the patio seating for an evening of drinks and appetizers! Terrific cocktails. Apps are always yummy. Patio is a great place to watch the Paso evenings go by. Good date night fun!

This is our second visit to Villa Creek. We loved the food the first time, so my husband and I came back last week to celebrate my birthday. Again we loved the food. And the wine selection is fabulous. I had Seabass, and my husband had a very tender and flavorful pork roast entrée. We also ordered a side of... More

My experiences at Villa creek have been varied. I do enjoy all of their food items and highly recommend you stop in, especially if you like small bites (i.e. their taco Tuesday menu is amazing). Their cocktails are not as good as some of the other local restaurants, but they have a decent wine and beer list. Also their dining... More

This is a nice restaurant and bar. The food and prices are on the high side unless you know about Taco Tuesdays. A local told us about it. When you walk in ask for the Taco menu. It is not always presented to your table. The tacos are $2.50 each and there are about 6 varieties. We tried the pork,... More

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.
