“Great Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2014

Had to wait a while but I wanted to sit on the inviting patio.
It was worth the wait. I had a very nice salad and desert with a glass of sparkling wine and left with a smile.

“Amazing dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

This anniversary celebration will be remembered as one of the best meals we've shared. We let the chef create a wonderful 6 course meal with wine parings. Truly an amazing experience! We dined on the outdoor patio - the weather was perfect. The service was excellent. We can't wait to return. Thank you Bistro Laurent!

“Disappointing!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

We were so looking forward to this restaurant and were quite disappointed. We had the tasting menu with wine. The service was extremely disappointing. The staff seemed bored and offered us no description of what they were serving. We had to call the wine server back twice because he mumbled something as he poured the wine and took off before we could hear what he was saying. (No, we don't have hearing deficits.) We were told that our dinner would be unique, but it seemed like almost everyone near us had the same tasting. The cucumber/tomato soup was okay. ("We aren't big fans of cucumber and didn't think to mention that since you don't know what you will be served.) The meat and fish dishes were excellent. We had a good laugh at the size of the chocolate dessert which was literally the size of a postage stamp. We wish we had gone elsewhere.

“dining excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Great chef's tasting menu which can be paired with wine. Food and presentation extremely well done. Service also extremely well done. Wine list is extensive so if you're a serious wine person, I'd suggest using their web site to study ahead of time.

“Wonderful classical French in Paso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Delicious in every way. Beautiful , classy dining room. EXCELLENT SERVICE. First class ingredients served in a beautifully creative way. Every bite was OH LA LA..C'est Bon.
One of us had the tasting menu and the other ordered off of the menu. No complaints here.
This will be our place to DINE, when in Paso Robles.
