We often find ourselves in Paso Robles about lunchtime when traveling to or from Lodi to points on the coast--this time we were on our way home after a latish start from Santa Barbara. Last time on our way through we were leaning towards Bistro Laurent when we received a very persuasive recommendation to try Villa Creek Restaurant by a... More

One of the best meals I've had in several years. Let the chef pic your courses and pare the wines. You won't regret it

My wife and I had dinner at Bistro Laurent and the food was just outstanding. I had one of the best pork chop in my life. Beautiful piece of meat perfectly cooked. They also have a good wine list. I understand that there are few taxis in Paso Robles. Therefore make certain you order a taxi on time to return... More

Beautiful indoor decor. We ate outdoors, lovely salad with shredded chicken, judicious use of dressing. Wine shop next door has some unique offerings, we purchased 3 French roses.

At a J Lohr event in early August we met a couple from the area and they recommended Bistro Laurent. Did not have a chance to try it then, but did this past weekend we could for a Saturday evening dinner. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the menu and the staff was courteous and professional, especially after we managed to knock... More

It was a very hot day and the inside of the restaurant was still warm from the day, so we choose to eat out on the patio, good move, there was a nice breeze and we were very comfortable. The only complaint was the R&R crossing went on for 60 minutes. The food was very good, a little pricey but... More

We spotted the inviting shaded patio while strolling downtown Paso (main square) on a hot day and decided to have lunch just because of that. Chance paid off! We were promptly and politely seated. The well chosen wine list, nicely short, provided for an excellent French rose that paired wonderfully with a very fresh Salad of Niçoise with Ahi. Then,... More

We returned to Paso Robles for the weekend and were so looking forward to our 3rd visit here. The 3rd time around was still great. We have dined all over the world (including France) and Bistro Laurent remains one of our top 5 worldwide. It remains one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. I say "experience" because... More
