Great dinner with friends at the new location. If you get a chance and if it's on the menu (changes according to season - Farm to Table) must order Caramel Popcorn dessert!!!!

“Better.......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

I submitted a review about a month ago suggesting disappointment at the new location. We happened to be in Paso again over the weekend and decided to try Artisan again for lunch. We'd loved this restaurant over the years and was wondering if we just had a bad night last month. So.....Lunch was very good and reinstated my hope for Artisan. Service was pleasant and prompt and the food was cooked just as we asked. The next time we're back in Paso we'll try dinner again.....i'm very hopeful !

We loved the room, the service, the meal(s). It is a perfectly honed restaurant and we will be coming back to it.

“First Time at New Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We had not been to Paso Robles in a year and a half. Each time we have been in town, we have always had a delicious dinner at Artisan. This trip we decided to return and found Artisan has a new location. The food is still outstanding and we had a delightful young woman as our server. We really like the new location. The dining room is quieter than the old place. Everything about our experience was outstanding. We will absolutely return next time we are in town which hopefully will be sooner than a year and a half.

“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

The food's the thing here, and it's inventive and delicious. Some of the portions are laughably small, such as the cheese plate, for $17, that we ordered for the table. I mean really teeny. One of us wanted an entree that came with collard greens, and the waitress was asked to substitute another vegetable. She was uncomfortable doing this, spoke to the chef, and then told us that, like it was a huge favor, they would do it. It was also annoying that they declined to give separate checks, which would have made settling the tab less complicated (there were five of us - my wife, our son, and another couple. We asked for one check for us and our son, and our friends wanted a separate check for them). So there is a bit of an attitude issue here, behind the smiling staff. Which is really too bad, since the food is so good. Also, the menu is limited, but we did not find that to be a problem, although some people might.
