surprisingly nice restaurant with exceptional food and service. the outside looks like it may be just a Bar on a sidestreet but once inside you will be impressed by the quality fine dining experience. Very professional waiter, white tablecloths, the whole package.

I wanted to try something different from my usual Hollister spots, so I went to Paines. The bartender was very welcoming and helped me get a great bottle of wine, the food was solid too.
