    Pretty disappointed in this place given the price point. We ordered two appetizers. The ricotta balls were a complete miss. Very dry, breading was bland, ricotta was bland, sauce was bland. Swing and a miss. The hummus appetizer was very good. Nothing groundbreaking but well flavored and I really liked the bread that was served with it. We got the sea paella and it a mixed bag. The scallops were some of the best I've ever had. The shrimp looked impressive but were very overcooked and tasted pretty bad. Little neck clams were very nice. Overall the dish wasn't worth the cost. Our other entree was the Sunday gravy and it was also a miss for me. My wife liked it more than I did, but still nothing special. I think the best part of our meal was the wine. Service was just okay and our table was very small and very cramped. We won't be back and can't recommend to others. Lots of great choices in Louisville, this isn't one of them.

    Food was good (appetizers good, main course ok), and ambience was excellent. Our waiter was one of the worst I've ever had. He seemed annoyed when asked questions about the menu and couldn't answer much without the help of the manager. We meet as a book club often, and the waiter splits appetizers, bottles, of wine, etc. He was not willing to do so and wanted an assignment of whom to charge for any of the shared items from the get-go. He took my wine glass away when there was still champagne in the bottle (not sure why champagne glasses were not offered). He never once came back to offer water, and we all left the restaurant thirsty. I actually had to walk over to him in the middle of the meal to order another drink. I saw him many times chatting at length with a table to our left rather than coming by to check on things. I would consider going back but would ensure that I did not get this waiter again.

    Everything about our Paseo experience was top notch. Our waiter, Cary, was helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed chatting with him throughout the evening. The food was delicious. Hummus to start, scallops and hake for our entrees, and a Spanish hot chocolate + chili ice cream for dessert. The space is lovely and we discussed all the people we wanted to bring back for future meals. Cary recommended we stop by Switchboard for a drink, which we did. I can’t believe the place wasn’t packed (in fact we were the only ones there at 6pm on a Saturday). The bartender Lucy was wonderful and she crafted a new drink just for us, as well as introducing me to a wine that is now a new favorite. Gold stars all around! Can’t wait to come back. So glad to have this restaurant and bar in our neighborhood.

    My wife and I really enjoyed our brunch at Paseo. I had a spicy bloody Mary with mezcal that might have best the best bloody I've ever had. The middle eastern flavors were great. We also had shakshuka, and lamb burger, and ham and cheese croquetas. All was very delicious.

    The service was great. Lila!! And everyone who chipped in. Just loved the fact that all the servers and hosts worked together. The food was creative, well prepared, tasty, and timely. Only thing we'd change is that the tables were just a tad too close together and could be spread out a bit. Well be back!
