In Paso Robles, California, Thomas Hill Organics is a casual bistro and wine bar that serves a range of elevated comfort food in a modern, casual atmosphere. The bar serves wine by the glass and bottle and many pair nicely with the wide range of dishes that use only the freshest ingredients that have been locally sourced. Thomas Hill Organics has a range of options that are good for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.
Thomas Hill Organics dinner starts with Marin Myagi Oysters, white kale salad and crispy Brussels sprouts among others. Larger dishes include pan-roasted chicken, grass-fed rib eye and fish of the day.
Very accommodating and our server was great as he helped us with the menu since we are vegan. The food was awesome. We will be back next time we return to San Francisco.
We have been to THO countless times & have always been very pleased with the incredible food & service. This time, we went for Valentine's Day when a fixed price menu was being served & things were not so good. First, we waited at our table for 20 minutes with no recognition from anyone except the person pouring our water. We finally said something to the hostess & then our waiter apologetically appeared. Even after that, our service was just average. I was very disappointed in my first course, which was a salad. We will definitely go back again, but not on a holiday.
Eat here! Fresh organic produce, sustainable meats/fish, creative menu without being silly, gracious service--quite possibly Paso Robles' finest dining experience! We have eaten here over 50 times and every time has been perfect!
Smallest portions I have seen at any restaurant ever. Not a good value. The meal was more like having a few plates of tapas or appetizers rather than meal. With so many other great options nearby, we will not return. Website indicated there would be live guitar music. There was , but only in the bar. That should have been made more clear.
We had good enough service, well prepared food and a generous serving of wine. So why will I not recommend this restaurant?! The bill---the meal was too expensive for what you get. In addition if you are a vegetarian like me. You are really out of luck. I ordered the only dish that was available without meat in it. The dish included an egg prepared with a soft yoke. I told the server I cannot eat an egg made in that fashion. I was not offered a substitute item or even an alternative egg preparation. Basically, I paid $50 [My glass of wine was an additional 12 .]for a dish that consisted of favaro and nettles---good but not $50 good. So if you go to this place be ware, especially if they have a fixed menu and you are a vegetarian.
I don't like to give poor feedback - yet I think some constructive comments may help . We have been here several times in the past and I absolutely loved the Kale salad - Apparently it is a new chef not the woman any longer. The kale salad is not very good there is really nothing great about it. My husbands New York was just just warm and somewhat undercooked, the broccoli was not good and uninventive- nothing to remember. Too many choices in the wine country, sad to say we will miss what it used to be.
Amazing unique food, great outdoor dining area. I usually come here for lunch, just discovered I love their dinner menu as well.
We had the special Valentine's Day menu with wine pairing and it was terrific - inventive cuisine meticulously prepared. Food volume was just right and wine choices were spot-on. Our first visit but definitely not our last.
Service was genuine, friendly, and down to earth!!! A pure indication that thoughtful and proactive management exist! Truly an anomaly these days! Allergies were fully accommodated!
Ingredients and quality were fresh and delicious! Sets Thomas Hill far, far apart from restaurants even in the Bay Area!
I've been to Thomas Hill twice now and each time loved every minute! The food is really outstanding! I love that the menu changes with the seasons and it's always fresh and absolutely delish. I can't even pick my favorite thing since it's all so good.
Best of all I must say the service has always surpassed all expectations: warm, friendly, prompt and knowledgeable. The servers are not only great at recommendations on food and wine but they made recommendations on vineyards to visit AND where else to go eat that was dog-friendly!
The covered outdoor patio is perfect for a well behaved dog which is awesome when travelling to Paso and wanting a nice dinner out. They made us feel completely at home and even brought water for pup. Even when a huge rainstorm hit mid-dinner we were warm and dry at a lovely table under a heat lamp.
I can't wait to go back. Thomas Hill is by far my favorite restaurant in Paso!
Came here for a New Year's Eve prefixed menu. One of best meals I ever had. Avocado toast sounds dull but it was amazing. I could eat a whole loaf of it. Prime rib was close to being best I've ever had. And apple tart for dessert was not too sweet. Service was good too, very attentive. I didn't think paso Robles had restaurants of this quality but really good food. I highly recommend it
Food was prepared perfectly. Prix faire menu had good variety of options for each course. Only item below excellent was the cod which was prepared very plain and bland. Overall, very good dining experience. As always, service was perfect and friendly.
First, the ambiance was lovely. Unfortunately the food arrived cold and the courses were rushed - yet the restaurant was not full. The second course - artichoke hearts - was tough and flavorless. The main course was very good, as was the dessert - which made up for the bland second course. Interestingly, no one, from the wait staff to the hostess, asked how our food was. For a restaurant of this calibre and a $78 price fixe menu, this was extremely disconcerting. We won't be rushing back.
the service and the food were excellent, we were seated quickly.
The food was outstanding. The server was very nice and personable, but there was a large gap between courses. Otherwise, we will definitely be back!
The food is always so fresh and memorable. Its just has a certain predictability to it.
Enjoyed brunch at this charming restaurant. The menu was imaginative and locally sourced. Many basic ingredient items were made in house. The ambiance in a garden area was lovely. We didn't have wine, but the restaurant has a large number of very interesting local vintages in limited supply.
And it was Sunday after Christmas and the kitchen and wait staff were excellent. Breakfast sandwich was best ever, as was Mushroom ragu; and French press coffee was outstanding. If they can be that fantastic between holidays, I canonly imagine how gret it would be at "normal" times. Definitely a must do place for brunch.
Came over the Christmas weekend, with great expextations, as we have come several times and always enjoyed. But, what happened - Was the chef on vacation?
We'll give it another try just to make sure...
Amazing creative food!
Food was perfection!
Nice restaurants, with great service and flavorful food. Great wine list.
I'm a foodie who recently was diagnosed with chronic acid reflux issues. I've been longing for flavor, but most restaurant options seems to create "flavor" with a fairly unimaginative approach to ingredients and preparations; happily, the chef at TH proved more creative than most. Thomas Hill's unique, flavorful, and digestion-friendly vegetarian and vegan options meant that, for the first time in months, I could eat from the menu and also enjoy what I was eating, without feeling like I was missing out. The dishes provided flavor, variety, and satiated my curious palate while satisfying my hunger, too. The variety of the menu items also meant that there was plenty for my meat-and -potatoes husband to select and enjoy, too. Hadn't been to TH for a while after a couple of negative experiences, but there seems to be something new going on, and happily, I'm looking forward to going back again.
We had a late seating and finished dinner late, however people were still in the patio partying. Our taxi never showed and our waiter who was finishing his shift took the four of us back to our hotel in his own vehicle, we will return to the restaurant for that reason alone. He was phenomenal both with menu suggestions and customer service! Wow what service. We were so impressed.
My husband and I had a reservation here on a chilly Friday night . When I had researched the restaurant, it was not clear that the majority of the restaurant is outside, and therefore, I did not officially note our seating preference on my reservation. This fact aside, we were seated outside with a heater that did not work. After several attempts at making the heater work, it did not and instead of the hostess/server asking if we wanted to be reseated at another table or inside, we had to ask to be reseated. Next table, same situation and it wasn't until we were walking out of the restaurant that they offered to seat us inside. Overall the hostess(es) was generally tart and ultimately the lack of service made us leave. Word to the wise, this restaurant is primarily outdoors and if you do reserve a table make sure you specify where you would prefer to sit.
We thoroughly enjoyed the grass-fed beef burgers, but the dessert combo of Tres Leches with a Chocolate Bisque was simply divine!
The confit chicken wings are the best in the world!
We love to stop in Paso on the way to San Francisco because of the variety of fabulous restaurants and the incredible wine lists. A friend recommended Thomas Hill. We ate "inside" because "outside", even though it had heaters, was freezing cold. Food was wonderful, wine list was interesting. It was an expensive meal but we truly enjoyed ourselves and the food.
This was my second time here and it does not disappoint. Food is delicious and the service was outstanding!
This was our fourth or fifth visit to THO. We really like the food and service here. However, for at least the second time, the kitchen had a problem with one of the orders, sending out cioppino where most of the mussels had failed to open. As we were leaving, we remembered we'd had the same problem with that dish maybe a year ago! The kitchen also sent out a dish we hadn't ordered. They handled it well when the error was pointed out to them, and our waitress promptly removed both items from the bill.
Other than that, the food is delicious and well-prepared, simple, and tasty. It's not knock-your-socks off great, but solid and enjoyable.
Great place to eat and have some great wines. The staff is very attentive and friendly. We had a great meal. I would recommend a reservation it does get busy.
The courtyard dining is special, fun and cozy. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful. Food was delicious. Duck, scallops, oysters, cheese, cake. The perfect evening.
Our server, "M" was terrible. After telling us our bread was "in the oven" it was brought out after the appetizer cold. She never checked back after delivering entrees. The food was good, but nothing to rave over. Better restaurants within a block.
Food continues to be quite good. Four us had the rack of lamb and they were cooked to perfection. The burrata appetizer was plentiful with enough to share. If you are interested in an unusual (and tasty) appetizer, try the stuffed peppadews. Little red peppers about the size of a cherry tomato with a little extra zest to it. Very good. This restaurant is still a good choice. I will say the patio is comfortable, but with several groups in there it is quite noisy.
We had a wonderful lunch, an excellent Thomas Hill red wine and the chocolate dessert was fabulous!
Since our favorite restaurant in Paso had closed (Second Press), we had to scramble to find a replacement - the hospitality host at one of the wineries recommended Thomas Hill, and we were not disappointed. The setting is unique - a covered patio in the middle of a few stores in old town. The menu was varied - fish, shellfish meat, and some excellent salads as well, The duck medallions were perfect, as was the swordfish and scallops. The service was excellent. The wine list had local wines, but they also have a small corkage fee if you bring your own. Overall, a really great dining experience.
Never disappoints. Excellent quality, healthy food. Service is impeccable. Wine list eclectic and superb.
The food is always interesting, delicious and farm-to-table fresh. The staff and service are impeccable. The atmosphere is inviting (so nice to be able to hear one another!)
Try the outdoor seating area...our favorite table is next to the fireplace.
The burrata was very flavorful and creamy. The hamachi was very fresh. The chicken was very tender and juicy - up there with the best anywhere. Dining on the patio set a very pleasant stage. Since it is covered, inclement weather would not be a problem. Overall a high point of Paso Robles.
The black bean tacos were an incredible appetizer and the roasted chicken was wonderful.
