"Bonjour!" But not so bon appe'tit.... Heard Panolivo was a "must." Had reservations that were punctually and politely fufilled. The atmosphere was nice, the drinks look fun, and the bar crowd is nice to gaze at. The service was very good. *However*: I commented that I didn't finish my French Onion Soup because it was bland, watery, and tasteless. The waiter acknowledged my concerns. Then my halibut came: overdone with a "Croûte de carton" (cardboard crust!) on one side where the chef left it sautee to smithereens. The profiterole pastry was hard and dry. To top it off, we were charged for the soup. Never, EVER charge a customer for a dish they complain about! Comment stupide! Je ne retournerai pas!!
Delicious Food, Great Location, Beautiful Decor. I've been to Panolivo's four times since they opened in San Luis Obispo. Their filet mignon was excellent, salmon delicious that my friend ate. I have never had better bread pudding, which was rich, a perfect portion, and made from croissants! Their lattes are to die for and the french toast is excellent.
"The food was excellent". I went to Panolivo about a month ago and ordered the Braised beef shortribs and they were excellent. The service was very attentive and the prices were also very reasonable. I will definately be back.
After our third visit we deceided not to go back. The food is getting worst, make sure that the owner is working in the kitchen when you dine.
the escagot were tastless, out of a can no seasoning with tastless raw garlic butter. Chicken under cooked.
