A local and international compilation of wines and a premium bar selection complement the fresh inspiring cuisine. "It seems that practically everyone visiting Paso Robles wine country passes through Villa Creek. That's easy to understand, because this winemaker hangout serves up youthful energy, satisfying food and an exciting wine list with excellent prices." Wine Spectator.

“Superb food and wine”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

The menu accommodated a wide range of tastes among the five of us, and each dish was prepared to our liking. Service was gracious and efficient. And of course, the Villa Creek wines are among my favorites.

“Great eats at the bar”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We like to bar hop eating some half meals at several of the local restaurant. This place was perfect for that . There is outdoor eating at high top tables where we could enjoy a nice glass of local wine and a filling appetizer. the hatch chili stew was unique and delicious.

“Quality staff and food”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

We were passing through Paso Robles and only had time to try one restaurant for dinner. Checked put several before deciding on Villa Creek, which sits right on the city park. As soon as you walk in you get a comforting sensation of a classy but casual place. The hostess and waitress were great helping us through glutinous free choices. Food was prepared exactly as we had requested.

“another pleasant discovery!”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

As we stopped in Paso Robles on our return journey North, my daughter and I were caught in an extreme heat wave that reached 113 degrees. We gave up pursuing wineries in the area, the heat took away our whole desire to go anywhere tasting 'red' wines.

We still needed a good dinner, though, and pacing around the main square, we peaked into Villa Creek and liked the atmosphere, the decor, and the friendly welcome we received. The menu was captivating and original (with Peruvian influence). We ordered: guacamole, a salad of just greens that was simply superb, and a savory sea bass cooked to perfection, we shared all dishes, and drank an excellent chilled white.

We were so enthusiastic that we returned the following night and this time ordered: tasty boquerones, the same fantastic salad of mixed greens, and an impeccable ahi tuna ceviche and drank another bottle of chilled white from their own vineyard.

The service was invariably professional and amicable. Discovering this restaurant was the highlight of our stay in Paso Robles.

“Enjoyable Meal”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Our meal and the service was really good at Villa Creek. My husband I shared and appetizer and entrée. Our appetizer was burrata (a type of cheese) and grilled stone fruit served on a bed of lettuce. And for dinner we had fried chicken and waffles. It sounded intriguing and we weren't disappointed. It's a great combo of crunchy, salty chicken and sweet Belgian waffles. This was our first time at Villa Creek and we were glad we tried it.
