Cooked perfectly, it melts in your month as it is so tender. If you have room for dessert try the lavender and honey... read more

Unique and delicious dishes with outstanding service in a noisy and casual atmosphere capture the feeling of dinner at The Range. Located in the center of tiny Santa Margarita, about 10 miles north of San Luis Obispo, this restaurant features great food prepared with locally sourced ingredients, an extensive menu of local wines by the glass or bottle, oldies but...

Not what you expect to find in such a small place. Good menu - interesting without being too quirky. With the exception of a goats cheese starter that lacked punch, everything was super fresh and well presented. A pleasure.

My husband and I were staying in Paso Robles and decided to go here based on a suggestion by someone we just met who lives here. We got there on a Friday night at 5:30 PM and had our choice of tables. We sat outside and it was perfect weather for that. Our server, Marti, couldn't have been better! The... More

Just a great restaurant. Four Foodies traveling together. Each of us had a separate dish. I had the grilled catfish. Just superb. Tasty and awesome. Bison short ribs were fall off the bone. The vegetables especially were like right out of garden on both salads and entrees. Wine outstanding and very reasonable prices. Service sometimes slow but with food quality... More

As Texans visiting the Central Coast, we had this place both highly recommended to us ("great foodie spot!") and were warned off it ("I'm sure you have better steakhouses at home") and, boy, are we glad we tried it for ourselves. Everything from service to food to decor was honest and wonderful, and it's not just a "steak place." Beautiful... More
