After a wonderful experience a year ago the restaurant fell flat in this return visit. The dishes lacked the Wow factor and 4 of the 6 beef dishes had to be returned to the kitchen because they were served cold. The dessert was dry and lacked flavor. Could not have been more disappointed after I had built high expectations based on the year ago experience. Won’t be making that long dark drive again soon.

Don't miss it! Your trip to Paso Robles wine country must include a tasting at Justin and while you are there---brunch or another meal. Our brunch was outstanding! Had the blueberry pancakes as an appetizer. The kale salad with steak was amazing. Everyone loved the menu choices!! And of course, a glass or bottle of wine.

Loved our lunch at Justin Vineyards! Food and service were exceptional. The view and outdoor patio were lovely. Wine tasting was fun and the wines were also exceptional. Loved our time in Paso Robles. Will definitely go again.

We were here on a little weekend getaway to go to a wedding and this was on our to do list, as we heard it was a nice winery to go to in Paso Robles .
We had a very delicious lunch and were very pleased with the whole experience.

We made reservations at this restaurant a couple weeks ago on open table for lunch. When we got there they said they were closing for lunch and wouldn’t honor our reservations and time. The hostess was not professional and didn’t really care. What happened to customer Service and the customer is ALWAYS right? Needless to say we will not be back nor to the winery. We come to Paso a lot and won’t be back. Justin has always been one of our favorites. We had Friends with us that had never been there and wasn’t impressed as well with the experience.

My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Justin where we enjoyed a delicious lunch and great wine! Our server was so sweet and helped us with the wine list as this was our first winery experience. Justin ranked at the top of most review sites I researched and that is why we chose them. My husband said it was the best burger he has ever eaten and that means a lot coming from the burger master himself. I highly recommend Justin Winery for a beautiful and romantic location to celebrate a number of occasions or just a quiet place to enjoy a tasty meal.

This was our first visit to Justin, we decided to splurge for dinner. We opted to add on a wine pairing, as we were unable to make it to their tasting room and we were very glad to have done that. We knew to expect a 5-course menu, but I was honestly expecting smaller portions. All courses tasted so good, unfortunately after the 3rd course I was completely full and could not eat the 4th course. Thankfully I was able to get my plate boxed up - a day later, this course was still delicious - I really wish I was able to try it while it was fresh out of the kitchen! I would recommend dinner at Justin for special occasions. It was a wonderful experience, we really enjoyed both the food and wine pairings. I look forward to returning and spending some time in the tasting room.

Justin is definitely a great place for lunch. The views of the vineyards are breathtaking. It's so relaxing to sit outside, sipping wine leisurely & looking at the views. We had the Chinese chicken salad which was delicious, especially with the black garlic dressing.

Came for birthday. Snitty hostess greeted us. Told her we had a reservation. Followed her to our al fresco table on a windy, chilly morning. Asked if we could sit inside. No. Was the answer. Reservations. I said I made reservations. Didn't matter. Heaters didn't keep up.
Food was tasty, small portions. Didn't have anything for birthday celebration, so brought a sparkling wine to both of us. That was nice. But did have to mention birthdays (2)and I had mentioned it in the reservation.

My boyfriend and I have been wanting to eat at this restaurant for a while but they were always reserved. We finally got the opportunity and we're sadly disappointed. We both got the burger, a thing a fries and 1 glass of wine. $65 total. The wine was great, the fries were great but the burger was plain as plain gets. It honestly tasted like they expected you to be tipsy enough to think it was the best thing in the world. We have had way better burgers from other places in there area. You can find way better stuff for cheaper prices else where. Perhaps there other stuff is good and worth the price but I definitely do not recommend the burger. Get their wine and go else where for food. If it's summer and a Saturday just go to Oso Libre for their fresh Angus beef burger. Cheaper and oh so worth it

Sat outside on the patio. It was a cold day but their heaters put out enough heat so that we were not cold. I had the burger which was delicious and my friend had the salmon and said it was perfect. We had a glass of the Malbec which really hit the spot. After lunch we went inside for wine tasting which was free since we had lunch there which was a nice surprise.
I'm a wine of Justin wines and was very happy to experience it first hand at the winery.

Very pleasant dinner here - just me and the husband. Excellent food, impeccable service. It's quite a drive to get there, but on scenic country roads. Quite pricey, but worth the splurge.

The food was very good. However, the service was not nearly as professional as I expected. We have eaten here before for both lunch and a spcial wine society dinner. I knew the food would be good. However, the service was not "bad"; it just wasn't as warm and attentive as we had had on other occassions. At least the wine and the food are always very good.

I had a reservation for brunch, came on time and waited 20 minutes to be seated with nobody in line in front of me. It took 15 minutes for the server to initially approach once seates. They didnt seem to have real experience, passing the table without acknowledging the table. Sad because the wines dont match the service. The pork dish didnt hit the table hot. Probably sat out. We could have rectified it early on but the server had never checked in on us until we were almost done with the meal. We let her know our concerns she hadn't done anything to rectify because it was too late. Before attending the restaurant we were going to book an event for a dinner party there we are also wine club members and hoped for better service.

We felt that it was a very nice place to go for lunch, however it was over run with too many rules and regimented service that it dented our overall experience. Staff seemed flustered. Having to check in at the front entrance and then be walked around to check in again at the restaurant and have to ask permission to have a wine tasting first when we arrived 30 minutes before our lunch booking time was unnecessary. We took 16 minutes for wine tasting and then we had to check in again and be asked again if we had booking. We are respectful of what it takes to run a restaurant and I don't believe we asking the world - or causing a delay...they weren't even full for lunch, empty tables were around us.
Maybe it was just the day we struck.
It was a lovely few hours on the deck.
