We took a guest to El Paseo last night, not without any apprehension. We have been here for dinner many times, and always felt that the experience didn't quite measure up to the high prices. No more ! Everything was just great -- from the ambiance and the staff to the food and the wine. The rack of lamb special... More

This was our second visit, following up from last year at this time. Our first time was really outstanding. So, it's really hard for many restaurants to meet or exceed a really good experience again. This was the case for us. What did meet our expectations was the location, seating, and service. These were all very good. Having said that,... More

This is my favorite place in Mill Valley. It is our go to spot for birthdays and anniversaries, as well as a drink at the bar and cheese plate on date nights.

I have been to El Paseo twice now and on both occasions taken visitors from overseas (Europe). The menu is interesting and all the dishes sampled at our table were very well received. The location is gorgeous and the separate areas make it feel like something different from the norm. We worth the visit.

Quintessential Mill Valley. This is our favorite place to take new visitors to Mill Valley for a nice evening and atmosphere. The food is delicious and the setting is great. The staff is pleasant, helpful and non-intrusive. Great wine list!

Great combination here. The food is very good, the building itself is beautiful and unique. If you love good wines, you can pick from Sammy's personal cellar book. Tyler greets many nights and it pretty well is booked fairly full whenever I have been there. Nice outdoor patio as well. Try the devilled eggs!

Had a great meal at Sammy Hagar's restaurant. Ordered the 32 ounce Cowboy Ribeye, which had to be the most expensive steak I have ever ordered at $84. It was excellent and I have no regrets about getting it! Cool layout to the restaurant with several separate dining rooms. Wife enjoyed her Filet, and as others mentioned, those litte puff... More

Excellent atmosphere and location. High quality and choice menu. excellent preparation and service. do not rush your meal here. stay and savor.

Unobtrusive, understated, but with an ambience that can be romantic, or energetic depending upon where one sits in this restaurant, El Paseo serves the best prepared steaks along with a diverse but interesting menu. The cowboy ribeye steak (for 2) is incredible. Specially seasoned, beautifully presented, and incredibly tasty, itis our favorite. Service has been attentive, beginning on arrival, followed... More
