Wow the amuse bouche looked like an ominous sign for the rest of the meal (it looks like plain pico de gallo on a slice of bread) but the rest of the meal looks amazing. And for $69 dollars great value too. Maybe he was trying to trick you into having low expectations and then wowing you :) haha


$69 seems pretty fair, especially with the wine pairings. OMG, that lobster salad!!! The blueberry sauce with the venison sounds especially interesting! We liked the downtown area and how everything was walkable; we just didn't stay too long there as it was just a "pitstop" on our way to Cayucos. We plan to explore the area during our next visit.

Yeh, JS, the amuse was underwhelming though it did have some parmesan -like something I'd get in Yuma. but after that, everything was stellar.

Everyone has their favorites, cc, but I fell in love with Paso when I lived in Monterey. And it kept improving. While I have driven through, I have never stopped in Cayucos. In fact, I had to google it to find where it was. There is so much to explore in that south central coast area.


I can't remember the last time I had sturgeon. That particular dish looks beautiful - the al dente lentils look like plump caviar to me.


It sounded ominous at the beginning, but I'm glad it fared better toward the end.

yeh, billy, I have no idea why the chef would start so mundane, particularly when the bread was being served, but I can't complain much.

I have had sturgeon, both fresh and smoked, at Passionfish in Pacific Grove, Faye, but can't recall other experiences. It is meaty, solid, but not strongly flavored. I wonder if it farmed these days since sturgeon are very hardy fish. My brother catches and releases them in the Columbia River, and he says they are none the worse for the experience.
