We had such a good time with Terri! Can’t wait to visit again!
We were warmly greeted and welcomed into the modernly decorated downtown tasting room. The sommelier was very friendly and informative, explaining the different wines and wine club options. We thoroughly enjoyed our tasting and were so pleased we ordered several bottles to be shipped to us!
I need to be fair and I have to admit I did not take a good look at the menu before reserving my table. This is a true tasting room and not a restaurant. I made the assumption I could get dinner there due to it being on open table. It looked very nice and I am sure the wine is more than likely great. When I looked at the menu it was more like appetizers and small snacks and not dinner, so we left. I would give it a try if I was down town and wanted to do some tasting and maybe just have some light appetizers.
Amazing experience, great wine, and outstanding service.
We wanted to like this as a place as we love the wines, but unfortunately it was a mixture of rushed workers, cold food, and slow service. There needs to be one person attending to those who are there to eat and experience great food/wine paring. Food is set down without any explanation and by the time we got our food (lamb meatballs) they were cold. Loved Deana who served us, but obviously under staffed as she had to run back and forth to work at the tasting room and the diners as well.
There also was a gentleman they sat who wanted to eat, only to be told the kitchen was closed. He stormed out as a result, which I doubt will be back.
We were very disappointed and embarrassed at taking our friends to the tasting room for lunch on April 6. Justin changed the menu/format since our previous visit in October. Even when I made our reservation a few weeks ago they still offered very nice lunch entrees. The new "small plates" format is certainly small!! Four lamb meatballs about the size of a typical chocolate truffle were $18 and the $16 Poutine Frites were basically limp french fries made soggy by some sauce drizzled on top. We told the server/manager Allison how disappointed we were, and she did nothing but say the chef was trying something new. It is not well received, seeing as how we were the only people in the restaurant from noon to 1:45 on a beautiful spring Saturday. We would have been better off just having the wine tasting in the front room. The bad food experience diminished our enjoyment of the wine. We will be cancelling our club membership.
The wine tasting exposed us to more great Justin wines and we learned a lot from our tasting guide. We shared cheese, charcuterie and a small plate and discovered the single varietal glasses were a great value. We’ll be back.
Spent $140 for two steaks and two glasses of wine. Both were good, but we went to In-N-Out after because we were still hungry. We both weigh 110 and 160. For the price tag, I expected more food. Wish we could have had a flight tasting with dinner since the tasting room is 10ft away, but nope.
Decor was slightly sterile but smart. Amazing wine, knowledgeable and relatable staff, just fabulous!!!
Our server was rude. However, the manager Dina corrected the situation.
Good wine, we made a reservation for wine and food pairing but it unfortunately was not available. The hostess was very nice to give us complimentary tasting. Wine was very good. We ordered pate plate but it was inedible. Our hostess was very nice
We were there on a very quiet day (a week before Christmas). The food was very good and attractively prepared. Service excellent and the space is very comfortable. Of course, the wine was sensational.
Wine tasting in the front, great food in the back! Had a delicious lunch meeting with business clients. Was a great space to hold a private conversation while still being in the bustle of downtown. Strip loin steak was perfectly cooked and fries disappeared!
We had a wonderful time, Raphael is so knowledgeable and we had a great time with him. We are wine society members and are happy to see a tasting room downtown
Extraordinary wines, and and fabulous service (thanks, Nicole). Really lovely and memorable. Hope to return.
While they are great winery the downtown restaurant falls way short. Overpriced with very few food selections. The wine pairing is very small amount of wine, like barely an ounce per taste. Way overpriced and you don't get a sense there is any creativity with the minimal completely hidden kitchen. With so many good options to choose from in downtown Paso these days this one will not be back on my list. Good winery, falls very short as a restaurant or even a restaurant/wine service bar combo.
There are so many things to love about JUSTIN, starting with their chic decor as you enter! My wife and I had theater tickets at the Park Street Ballroom, so we grabbed a quick bite and tasted a flight of wine. A friend urged us to try their burger, and it (plus accompanying fries) was spectacular, as was the salad with local goat cheese (yum) tossed with a perfect champagne vinaigrette. There was one slight hiccup: our server departed halfway through our meal/tasting (we ordered 1 flight, and he graciously offered to split it between 2 glasses during our meal)...our new server was great too, but she must not have been told that we were sharing one flight, so we ended up being billed much more than anticipated. We needed to get to our show, so I didn't say anything (the service was impeccable) but will make sure we're careful with our bill next time! P.S. Make sure to taste JUSTIN's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon...wow!!!
We are glad the tasting room is now open in Paso Robles. We enjoy our Justin wines and can’t always drive out to the winery. A great place for a couple or a group. Must have reservations. Would prefer it to be open a little later in the evening.
Amazing. Joined wine club! Will not disappoint. Can’t wair to go back.
Great food and wine. Love the convenience of the new downtown location.
The food and wine pairing was
Disappointing. There should
Have been more food for 50pp. We had to order a cheese plate and hamburger (delicious) making our bill over $200.
