Working with local farmers since 1998. Villa Creek's Chef Tom Fundaro prepares local, organically or sustainably farmed products in rustic preparations. A local and international compilation of wines and a premium bar selection complement the fresh inspiring cuisine. "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.

Winery owned restaurant offers exceptional wines

We visited the winery for a tasting and then dined at their restaurant the same day. Both experiences were memorable! Good food, wonderful wines and a great place to people watch. Be prepared for an atmosphere that's very noisy, though, when the place is busy.

Went here for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. I can't get over how good the butternut squash enchiladas were.

My wife and I went to Villa Creek for dinner while on vacation in Paso Robles. We were struggling making decision and stumbled across Villa Creek. The restaurant is located on main downtown square in Paso. There are multiple seating areas including dining room, bar and outdoor patio. We chose the bar area - little chilly to sit outside. I...

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

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 tacos. Very taste. We also... 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
