    Outstanding dining experience! Chicken liver mousse - delicious. Parker roll - scrumptious. Grimaud farm duck - flavorful, moist. Chocolate fondant - decadently delightful. Highly recommended overall experience with attentive service.

    Food was really good, service was average at best, waitress seemed rushed. Outdoor bench seats not very comfortable.

    It was a very quiet night for Paseo, and we were two of 3 people in the bar, and only one other large table in the dining room. That surprised us a bit, but everything was on point from the kitchen, and our bartender Jameka couldn’t have been more charming.

    Thanks for the review, Robert! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience at Paseo We're glad to know that you appreciated our food, service, and found our staff to be charming. Sundays are definitely a quiet night for us but we get loud in the bar for our live Jazz every Thursday and always on the weekend. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

    The food, service and atmosphere at Paseo is always excellent. The restaurant has a small place feel because it is divided into a number of separated rooms and eating areas both outside and inside. It must be a logistical challenge to serve drinks and food in such a configuration but we have always found the service fantastic. The wait staff is knowledgeable, efficient and attentive without being over bearing. The food from appetizers, to main courses and dessert is varied and interesting. It is not an inexpensive restaurant but worth it for a wonderful night out.

    Haven’t dined at El Paseo, now Paseo in many years and enjoyed the experience very much. New GM was excellent and very welcoming and “hands on.” Ordered a Grey Goose Cosmo, but received Tito’s which just doesn’t taste right. Waiter didn’t bother to tell me they don’t offer Grey Goose, which is my only complaint. All in all, a very good experience 👍

    Paseo Bistro's Wine Wednesday Delight! Nestled amidst the charming streets of Mill Valley, Paseo Bistro stands out as a culinary oasis, where every visit promises a symphony of flavors and a warm, inviting ambiance. Recently, we had the pleasure of experiencing their Wine Wednesday promotion, and let me tell you, it exceeded all expectations! Now, let's talk about their Wine Wednesday promotion – an absolute game-changer! Paseo Bistro's selection of wines, carefully curated by wine manager Kip Martinez to complement their exquisite menu, is truly impressive. Not only do they offer a diverse range of varietals, but the “Wine Wednesday” 50% discount on select bottles make it an irresistible opportunity to indulge in the perfect pairing for your meal. Speaking of the menu, where do I begin? Each dish at Paseo Bistro is a masterpiece in its own right, crafted with precision and passion. Our personal favorites include the succulent duck, perfectly seared scallops, mouthwatering burger, and the crispy romaine Caesar salad. Each bite was a revelation, showcasing the chef's commitment to using only the finest ingredients and culinary expertise. The duck, tender and flavorful, practically melted in our mouths, while the scallops were a testament to freshness and skillful execution. Even the humble burger was elevated to gourmet status, with juicy, premium beef and a medley of savory toppings. And let's not forget the crispy romaine Caesar salad – a refreshing delight that perfectly balanced crispness with creamy dressing and just the right amount of parmesan and cornbread croutons. What truly sets Paseo Bistro apart is their dedication to providing an exceptional dining experience from start to finish. The attentive and knowledgeable staff, combined with the cozy ambiance and outstanding cuisine. And don't forget to mark your calendars for Wine Wednesday – a perfect excuse to treat yourself to an unforgettable evening of gastronomic delights!
