    the food was great. it was their second weekend doing brunch and I hope it picks up for them because it is a great menu. Our highlights were the semolina hotcake, the spanish tortilla and the Shakshuka. All incredible. The cappuccino was not great, but everything else was solid.

    We celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary and very much enjoyed everything we ordered! Our server was helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be back as there were several things (everything really) that we want to try in the future! We even received a complimentary champagne toast which was so sweet!

    This was the second time I have been here and again they out did their selves! Over all we had a 10/10 experience. The non alcoholic beverages to start the meal is a great suggestion, I enjoyed them. The warm hummus and the squash soup as a starters, fantastic, The vegetarian options are great, two at the table had the cauliflower steak and each one cleaned their plate. The third guest enjoyed the pasta and myself I had the fish. Both of us had no complaints. All of us had two glass of wine and for dessert the slice cheesecake was shared, was delicious and devoured. Our service was top notch, I was so glad I brought my out of town family here. Dinner for 4 was about 100 dollars per person, which was a value for the amount of food that we had on top of the impeccable service. We will be back!

    Food tasy, well prepared. Full of flavor. Portions were just right. The ambience was very nice . Casual , light yet modern elegance. Plenty of space between tables - but still quaint. Lighting and interior decor was definitely done by professionals. Enjoyed being at a restaurant where acoustics were good. Loved the fact it was tucked away - like a found jewel.

    It starts with the service - honored our 6:30 PM reservation with immediate seating; our Server introduced herself immediately & obtained drink orders; and the excellent service continued throughout appetizers, entrees & dessert. With the exception of the squash soup, all six of us greatly enjoyed the starters, entrees & sides. The openness & hard surfaces of the dining area made for quite a bit of background noise but it did not interfere with our party's conversations.

    Excellent food and service at Paseo. Everyone enjoyed their drinks and entrees. Paseo is quiet enough for good conversation. Be aware that the menu changes regularly, so if you loved something the last time you were here, it may not still be on the menu when you come back. I appreciate that they are only serving fresh, in season ingredients,, but I did miss the delicious halibut i ordered on my last visit.

    Paseo was a genuinely wonderful find! It’s only been open about five months, but it is tucked away in a beautiful location. It has wonderful ambulance, and the food was delicious. We had the pan roasted Hake fish with Moroccan stew, and as an appetizer, the whipped hummus. Everything was delicious!

    The food and service was amazing. From the hummus brulee, the beef tartar, and land paella. To finishing up with the lemon bar and the house made soft serve. I highly recommend giving them a try, not my first visit and everything I've had has been incredible. Will definitely be back.

    We went for the first time on Friday night, and we had such a nice time. We were able to sit outside, and it was lovely. Ashley was our server, and she was wonderful. The drinks were tasty. We had the hummus as an app and it was the best we had ever eaten. For entrees, we had the Hake (night's special) and the chicken; both were amazing. It was my first time eating Hake, and it was so tender with roasted sweet potatoes in an incredible Moroccan sauce. The dessert was a homemade soft serve ice cream with a peach crumble. I can't wait to have it again!! The restaurant and hotel are such nice additions to the neighborhood.

    Overall, the experience was nice. The space itself is very nice updated and was a fun place to experience. However, the food was not exciting and I felt was average at best. The steak was severely rare and not ordered that way. The lamb burger was overcooked and the slab of cheese on top was never melted.  The appetizers were pretty good overall and next time we will go for drinks and appetizers, but probably not entrées.

    Great atmosphere, the food was not good. The scallops were not real. We had so much hope for this place. Really, not good.

    PaseoResponded on 7 October 2023

    Hello: First off, thank you for giving us a visit. My apologies that your overall food experience was not enjoyable. Can you please elaborate on the scallops comment? We most certainly use fresh scallops and if they tasted off or were not cooked appropriately, we definitely need to know that. We are very much a work in progress as we continue to improve on our menu items and any critical feedback will only help us improve. Please feel free to reach out to me directly with more information and again I apologize for not providing the best food experience we could. Tim Quinlan F&B Director Myriad/Paseo

    I highly recommend Paseo! The food is excellent! We had the warm hummus, mushrooms, ricotta balls, lamb burgers and the halibut. Everything was perfect. Michael at the bar is extremely knowledgeable, he helped with what wines/ cocktails to pair with our dish. His recommendations were amazing! I will certainly be back.

    Lovely cocktails. Some good food (and some of it was even very good), but two of our dishes were over-salted, which put a damper on the overall culinary experience. Prices are pretty high, and servings are pretty small, which is ok if everything is excellent, but it just wasn't quite there. Will try it again, but if the experience is the same as our first one, I don't think this will end up on our regular rotation of restaurants.

    We were told our hummus would come with bread and veggies, which sounded good to us found out when we got our bill that the veggies cost an extra five dollars. So we were upsold without being told about it. We would have been happy to pay, but it’s off not to mention it? Our server didn’t like our beverage choices. Our server didn’t take off the Mediterranean chicken off the bill when it was served cool and the vegetable side was so sour we had to send it back (server took plate without a word when we mentioned the problem eventually came back and asked us what we would like to do about this without of offering options) and we had to ask for that to be done, which felt awkward. The Sunday gravy pasta was also served cool and was definitely not worth $36. The cauliflower dish did not wow us. My spirit-free margarita was tasty. The booth seats are not made for anyone shorter than 5 foot five. Beware of that.

    Try the brioche hummus, you’ll thank me later. Outdoor seating was perfect, and table service was next-level for this city. Honestly, I felt like I was dining in an upscale DC or NYC spot. Perfect place for a date without it feeling like a date. Take your special someone to Big Four to watch the sunset after dinner to cap off a perfect evening. 10/10

    Great place overall. Took a while before our server came over to get us started. Food was amazing except for the octopus which was way too small to share. Additionally it was tough and the two small pieces of chorizo were more like burnt pepperoni from a box store pizza. Chicken, halibut, cauliflower and fish paella were amazing. Dessert was not what we expected but were truly outstanding and refreshing.
