I was able to make a reservation on Open Table - then it was cancelled by ther restaurant, with no explanation. I figured it was a glitch - so I made ANOTHER reservation, and it took. Only to discover, one we had driven 4 hours, that the restaurant was CLOSED - all the windows papered up and "Stay Tuned" written on a window. Very disappointed that Open Table did not make it CLEAR in the initial cancellation WHY it was cancelled.

We had a confirmed reservation on 7/5/17 @ 7Pm confirmed and reminded by Open Table, we showed up, our first night in Paso, we were greeted by a paper sign in the window say they were closed.

We ate at Artisan across the street and had a great dinner watching may others being greeted by the closed sign at Villa Creek.

There won't be a second chance.

I made a reservation and when I arrived there was a note on the door that the restaurant was closed. Very disappointed, thus the rating.

It was very noisy. Lot more kids than I would have expected which made for little to no ambiance.

I've been to Villa Creek 3 times and it this was my last. It has gotten progressively worse. The service was terrible, our waitress didn't know what she was talking about so when we ordered food, it came out different than what she told us - not good if you have allergies or eating restrictions. Our waitress had an attitude with us from the start and was unavailable until we were paying the bill. We had to ask 3x just to get a glass of water, and when you are in wine country, water is important! I hope they can improve their service because it made our meal a terrible experience.

Was disappointed by the fact that they were out of the yellow carrot soup and the burrita for the appetizer when it was clearly not very busy, maybe 4 tables at 7 pm. Won't be back. Clearly poor planning in the kitchen. Sad disappointment when it was highly recommended. Nothing special.

We had a bad experience with waiter and left. Attitude issue.

The menu is very limited- only 5 dinner entrees. I felt it was pricey, without the "wow" factor. We spent a lot to sit on hard wooden bench to eat. Underwhelmed to say the least.

The night we dined it was exstreamly quiet. It's a new chef that has created a new menu that changes. Food and service was great.

Love this restaurant and had a great dinner. Definitely miss some of the old favorites on the menu though - please bring back the Not Nachos and the Squash enchiladas and the delicious tortillas!

Driving thru Paso, old food stop, not lived up to memories. Food okay, service still good.

We had a fabulous dinner and met the new chef Tim. Tim made us one of his signature desserts- Lime Pudding to share. We'll be back soon.

Traveling the world and being born in Italy, being a foodie is in my DNA. It all starts with the service: Tiffany is a great host and made us feel at home. Every request was acknowledged with a smile and satisfied in a timely fashion.
Then the food: even if paid for, the bread is amazing and the Sicilian cauliflower to write home about it! And then the entrees : very well chosen and balanced, despite of the limited selection.
Overall a great experience and the manager stopping at the table was informative and showed care.
A Restauranteur textbook experience!
