I had the great opportunity of enjoying dinner with my family at Panolivo Restaurant in Paso Robles. The restaurant, which is known for its delicious breakfasts and lunches, is now open for dinner. And, it was not a disappointment.
Each person, in our party of six, had a different entree and each dish was exceptional. I savored my salmon with lobster ravioli, as others raved about the bison short ribs, duck with cherry sauce, and the sea bass.
We especially enjoyed the friendly attention of the owners, Beatrice
and Didier.
I will definitely make this restaurant a regular stop on my wine
tasting trips to Paso Robles. Make it your destination, too, for a
meal to remember!

We came in for a late lunch and had a wide choice of meals and sandwiches. The half panini and bowl of soup was generous and excellently flavored. French pastries looked spectacular. Yes, price was sort of high for lunch. Dinner menu looked equally interesting and better priced in comparison. Beautiful, airy surroundings in downtown Paso.

Our palettes were introduced to new and amazing fare this past August weekend in Paso Robles. It was our first visit to Panolivo, and it certainly won't be our last. We are regulars to Paso Robles at least twice a year, and had never experienced such delicious gourmet entrees in Paso Robles like this ever before. To be honest, we wished we lived even more locally (we reside in Orange County, CA), because we would visit every week.

The four of us are serious "foodies," and everything was impeccable. From the savory appetizers (scallops & baked goat cheese) to the unique entrees (loved the Bison short ribs & sea bass) and unexpected desserts (basil ice cream was amazing!), the tastes were very balanced and well thought-out. Our sincere compliments to the Chef, as we appreciated her personal visit to our table, as well as her demonstrated passion for Panolivo and its cuisine. We especially enjoyed the sweet breakfast pastries the next morning – a wonderful reminder of the night before.

Panolivo is a MUST for anyone who enjoys five-star cuisine and hospitality with a warm, personalized touch.

Ambiance was very nice. Food quality was high but so was price. Simple breakfast for my wife and I was $35 including tip. Service was the worst part. It was not that busy and service was way too slow.
