Description: Working with local farmers since 1998. Villa Creek's Chef Tom Fundaro prepares local, organically or sustainably farmed products in rustic preparations. 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.

“Nice atmosphere...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

My friend and I went to get a bite to eat and a glass of wine. My friend had the house burger and said it was okay. I decided to just enjoy a glass of wine. We sat on the outdoor patio in the evening, which was amazing! If the service would have been better, I would have given the place a better review but the waiter stood at a table visiting with a couple of young ladies instead of checking back with us. I would give it another try except there are many other places to try where the service has received rave reviews!

“Mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

Nice atmosphere but the food is way too salty. I've noticed that in restaurants in this town. It's like they are catering to the geriatrics who have lost some of their sense of taste. Loved it when they had live music on Thurs. nights in the back courtyard.

“Hatch Green Chile Chili - Stop It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Wow! If you are a chili lover, this is the best pork chili this side of Las Vegas, NM... Excellent flavor, chiles really come through, fried egg on top (a ranchero huevo?), queso fresco, and succulent pork chunks. A good glass of Zin to go with it and you are all set! You will not be disappointed, I gar-on-tee...

“Fine dining in Paso Robles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

Although not a white tablecloth restaurant it is considered fine dining due to price I assume. It is also a winery we were told but we did not have any of their wine on this occasion. Decor is sparse and wall decor is dried vines. Interesting. Food was good but not over the top in our opinion. We had chicken under a brick (good) and halibut that we felt needed a bit more flavor. Service was excellent on a quiet Sunday night. Flour less chocolate cake with salted Carmel gelato was off the charts. Papas Bravas, small red potatoes roasted with a lemon aioli dip was delicious. Overall, good but coming from Napa and Sonoma counties, we are spoiled with very good restaurants and Paso Robles is sadly lacking in that regard.
