Wow, the wait is long but the food and drinks did not disappoint. We had a family of 9 so wanted to try a little bit of everything. We sat outdoors so it was a little chilly but the had heat lamps for us. The...wait staff was friendly and practiced safe mask wearing, hygiene guidelines. They also gave us a travel size bottle of sanitizer to use and take with us which was a nice touch. The restaurant was super busy but they were very accommodating for a big group. Everything was delicious and so glad we ordered a little bit of everything to try. We had halibut ceviche, double cut pork chop - really loved it - was flavorful and so juicy and tender, grilled octopus was souveed and grilled so tender and tasty, pozole - tasty and tender meat, garlic rice - flavorful and fragrant, flat iron steak with cactus was very tender and tasty - loved the tasty cactus too, taquitos - they were large and tasty, mahimahi fish, chili verde beef short rib with egg - another favorite, salsa trio with chips (really light and delicious), guacamole. The drinks were perfectly made - Paloma, smoke fire blood, Mach 1, Gaucho in both Cadillac and Mezcal. Definitely a must try when in Paso Robles!More

All's good here. It was very busy yet staff was attentive and as fast as possible. The food was served hot and tasty. We dined outdoors but there was still atmosphere and a great vibe in Paso.

Went for my Birthday and had a wonderful meal. This isn't a free chips/salsa on the table kind of Mexican restaurant, although the tortilla chips with their ceviche appetizer were fresh and tasty. If you like fish as well as Mexican flavors/seasoning, this is a...great place for a meal. Portions didn't seem huge but somehow we left stuffed. Their taquitos are enormous..they give you 4 in the appetizer. Easily enough for 6 people to share. Service was perfect, not too absent and not too present. Just right. They make excellent cocktails as well.More

New and popular restaurant here in Paso. The food, drinks and ambience has made this a local favorite. Some nights you can get in without reservations, but most nights, you will have a little wait. No biggie. First off, the food is southern tex/mex style,...with a little South American flavor. We love the food, especially the expert-level seasoning/salsas they serve. We haven't had a bad meal here, but it can be a bit pricey.More

I called the restaurant several times a few weeks before our planned visit to book a table, as I wanted to make sure we had an outdoor table. After leaving several messages and never hearing back from them, I booked a table online. The day...before and the day of our visit I again called several times to confirm our outdoor table and to request a cake/dessert - or see if we could bring one in - as we were celebrating a birthday, again, never got a call back. Finally went to the restaurant early to make sure we had a reservation, which we did. At that time I asked about the dessert and was told "No problem, we'll sort something out for you." We ordered appetizers and drinks for the table, they were all great, but some confusion and delay in delivery to the table and a long wait for a refill of our chips. After that it was all downhill. Long waits for the main course, one of which was sent back as inedible, mains delivered with no silverware, couldn't find anyone to ask so finally tracked it down ourselves while our food got cold, no mention of dessert, no fill ups of our water after repeated asking. By the end, couldn't wait to get out of there.More

Struggling with COVID-19 restrictions like all restaurants, they did a very good job with seating us on time and the service was very good. The halibut tacos were great and so was the crab salad. Little pricy but worth it.

First time at Fish Gaucho last month and highly recommend this fun spot! Great food - fish tacos are to die for and so are the nachos. If you're not drinking, they go out of your way to make you fancy mocktails to make you...feel extra fancy. Love this place and that they're going above and beyond during Covid as well. Cheers!More

Delicious fish tacos! Solid guacamole and chips. Nice ambiance. The staff was very on top of adhering to social distancing, wearing masks, and having guests wear masks which we appreciated. The cocktails looked phenomenal but we had a long drive ahead of us so opted...not to drink. Next time! The restaurant is super pricey though for what you're getting- even during happy hour it's $12 for 2 small tacos.More

We had a good Mahi Mahi Taco. It was a very busy Saturday night, the service was great and outdoor seating and all COVID precautions were taken by staff. Recommended!

I wish I could answer your question but I can't. Hopefully the Manager on duty will answer it. It's a really nice place and I hope you get to go.
