"It seems that practically everyone visiting Paso Robles wine country passes through Villa Creek. That's easy to understand, because this winemaker hangout serves up youthful energy, satisfying food and an exciting wine list with excellent prices." Wine Spectator.

Nice late evening stop!

My wife and I attended a university event in downtown Paso. Afterwords we walked up the street and looked in to Villa Creek windows. It looked inviting. We did not seat in the restaurant side, but did sit in the bar side. We ordered two Carnitas Taco orders. Each serving had three or four taste... read more

This was my first extended stay in Paso Robles and the Villa Creek Bar and Grill. I was impressed with the area and the decor of Villa Creek. It was a Thursday evening at about 7 pm when we dined. We sat in the bar area. The menu was different and I am not sure what the "area" of the... More

Great choice for dinner when we stopped on our way to Monterey. Anaheim Chili Relleno was terrific, and pork tacos and shrimp in red garlic sauce were very good. But the Hatch chili pork stew was beyond amazing ("lick the bowl" good). And we found an awesome wine by the glass--be sure to try it -- "Just Try it Red".... More

Dined at Villa Creek with 5 of my girlfriends for a birthday celebration. We had reserved a table in the dining room, but ended up choosing the bar area to have our celebration because there was so much energy in that room. Food was delicious, cocktails were great and the service was decent. Be careful when asking for wine recommendations... More

We had dinner there the night after a disagreeable dinner at Bistro Laurent and we found the food wonderful, the service remarkable and generous (they brought an extra appetizer that the kitchen has prepared--without charge). The waiter made a brilliant wine suggestion and we were treated to yet another wonderful GSM. The price was very reasonable and we shall return... More

Sat in the bar with 7 other friends for a 40th birthday get together. Super slow and rude service. Highly unfriendly bartender and servers. Fabulous food!! What can I say.... Many other places to go to be treated with great service. We have been going to this place for years and can see there are some management issues? Idk... Disappointing.

We ate at Villa Creek several times in 2000-2002. I went back in February and was thrilled to see that the hospitality and quality that I remembered is still there. The staff are terrific and the food has enough variety to satisfy most people.

Had dinner here with a couple of friends. They had a limited menu, but the food was awesome. You don't get a lot of food for the money, but quality food. I would definitely return again.....
