Bistro Laurent is charming. Really. It's just that Le Chef de Cuisine seems to have missed out on the last 50 years of culinary progress. The 4 course tasting menu was so meh, yet the room, the service and the wine were so excellent . . . I wanted to go into the kitchen and ask is anyone here paying... More

We wanted to go with local Paso wines , but the owner suggested French which were outstanding. I've considered joining his wine club for French wines. I had the tasting menu paired with wines while my husband ordered from the menu. The pairings were perfect. Intimate and cozy ambiance, great service and yummy cuisine created a lovely evening. If I... More

I had read quite a few good reviews on this restaurant, and our hotel recommended it. But from the moment we sat down, until the time we left, it was a disappointing experience. To begin with, our food server seemed totally uninterested in serving us. We had to ask other servers for recommendations. We finally decided to start with the... More

Our friends recommended this restaurant for the four of us. They were excited to try it as they had dined at the bistro in the past when all meals were prix fixe. The wine selection was difficult for us northern Californians to choose but ultimately enjoyable. The food was delectable and substantial.

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.
