Ciopinot Seafood Grille is the #1 seafood restaurant in San Luis Obispo. Head to Ciopinot for amazing seafood! Ciopinot Seafood Grille is fine dining at its best. Whenever we find ourselves in the area, we head to this delightful restaurant.
On our first visit we knew we were somewhere special as we walked in the door. The atmosphere was cozy. We were warmly greeted by the host. We were seated in a corner seat. Our server opened the bottle of wine we had brought. He explained that there was no corkage fee. What a nice surprise!
Steve ordered the “no work” cioppino, their signature dish. Everything’s been shelled so it’s ready to eat. He said it was the best cioppino he’s ever eaten. There was plenty of seafood in the most deliciously think, hearty broth. It was served in an iron pot which kept the dish warm to the last drop.
I had their stuffed filet of sole special topped with a yummy sauce and served with rice pilaf. The fish was cooked perfectly…light and fluffy.
They had a variety of tempting desserts on the menu. We decided to share a Creme Brulee, which was a great choice. We’ve never had a better Creme Brulee. The very generous dish was served in a deep dish. It was creamy with a rich vanilla flavor. The well trained and friendly staff along with the fabulous food combined to create the perfect dining experience.
Since that first visit, we have returned again and again. This has become a favorite San Luis Obispo restaurant. There’s sitting but inside or out on the patio. We enjoy either. If you have not dined at Ciopinot, give it a try!
