A Gem... A true find in DelrayWhat a surprise..... Patio Delray is a lovely restaurant... The dining room is perfect.... the outside garden is wonderful (even though it is around a parking lot.... A FREE parking lot in Delray). It is pretty enough for a special Saturday night.... but the prices are ok for a great relaxing dinner after work. Try it... you will not be disappointed...don't miss the soups. The food... the service ... all wonderful. My new favorite!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful surprise...oneA delightful surprise...one of Delray's best. Miss Lily is a graceful hostess.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved loved loved this restaurant!From the moment we were seated at our table we felt like honored guests. The food was absolutely delicious and our waiter was able to answer our specific questions about some of the ingredients in the dishes. Our meal from our drinks-appetizers-entree-to dessert were fabulous. ( The warm brownie was to die for!!) On top of this...the delightful Ms Lily opened up a bottle of champagne in honor of our anniversary!! We also appreciated going to a restaurant where the parking was easy and the noise level was quiet....an A+ evening!!5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Surprise!The food was excellent and Miss Lily was very attentive. The whole experience was great start to finish!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat venue off the beaten pathWe typically venture out to Atlantic Ave in Delray for dinner, but found Patio Delray through Yelp. The food was outstanding and service was wonderful. Lily (the owner?) stopped at our table a few times to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Short ribs were to die for!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat serviceI ordered the special a Maui Maui severed with excellent fried rice on a fresh pineapple. The presentation was great and the taste was better. A wonderful experience. They make a great Cosmo. And the house wine was very good.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMVery SpecialI took my friend as her birthday treat and what a lunch it was! Lily, the owner took care of us royally. The food was excellent and not the usual fare. Lily even brought out a candle on my friends, delicious bread pudding dessert and finished with glasses of champagne.
This owner has done a great job with the decor and the menu.We felt as if is we were dining in a private home. I would highly recommend this place and I hear they serve an awesome brunch.
Thanks Lily.....We will be back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchFirst time visit, group of 6, was pleasantly received, staff very friendly and helpful, found selection of food limited but adequate, considering the price per person, did not consider it good value, read; expensive.
Did not like the 20% gratuity added to the bill, seemed high for serving water and clear plates from table.
Despite this we found the experience good, but would not recommend it to a friend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat FoodWe enjoyed a Mother's Day Brunch Buffet. The food was excellent. The variety of options was tremendous. The price was a little on the high side at $65 per person. The mandatory 20% gratuity was a bit of a rip off considering it was a buffet. The wait staff just poured a glass of water, removed a few dishes and presented the bill. But everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We will be back for sure on a non buffet day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been to Patiro DelrayWe've been to Patiro Delray twice now. Both times the food was excellent, and we had wonderful leftovers. The service was very attentive, friendly. We will go back!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom burgers to gourmet -From burgers to gourmet - all done well. Generous portions. Good value.
My new favorite - Garam Masala Rubbed Ahi Tuna, Forbidden Black Rice, Blistered Grape Tomatoes, Edamame , Curried Mango Chutney Raita, Asian Slaw - YUM!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything you could wantEverything you could want in a restaurant. It's what "dining" is all about: welcoming setting (whether inside or on the patio); graciously appointed; sophisticated menu; delicious food beautifully presented; quiet - so that you can enjoy conversation; reasonably priced for such a high quality meal/setting/service. It's a winner.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOff the Main Road GemThe menu is interesting but not over-whelming. Each dish was well prepared and served by an establishment that cares about taste as well as appearance. The ambiance is cheerful and cozy. The owner worked extremely hard moving inside and out and handling all tables - the geometry of the restaurant and the economics likely limited the help. An additional server would have helped the staff and likely brought coffee / check to the table in a bit more timely manner - but pleasant attitude counterbalanced.
Would / absolutely will come back. Outstanding flavor / the best brunch food we have found in the Delray / Boca area. Highly recommend this 'off the main road' gem.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice local place, romantic,Really nice local place, romantic, quiet and elegant little gem. Jerry has waited on me and my companion several times, he providesfirst class service. I usually take his food recommendations and have never been disappointed.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA delicious birthday dinnerMy girlfriend wanted to bring me to a special place for my birthday. Even though I have dined here before I didn't let her know so as to spoil her surprise.
We started with the Ultimate smokey martini with jumbo blue cheese stuffed olives, wow soooooooo smooth. Then went on to the Patio wedge with crispy prouciotto, lots of blue cheese, yummy. Then we both had the special of the day , the prime New York strip with Peruvian fried potatoes and chimmichurri, melt in your mouth tender.
This place is so wonderful, I'm torn between telling all my friends about this place and keeping it a secret spot for myself.Thank You Patio Delray4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCEEDED EXPECTATIONSOne of the best meals we had on our recent visit to Delray Beach.
Everything on the menu from the cocktail list right through to dessert was exciting and imaginative.
Can't wait to go back4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDELIGHTFULWe had dinner on the lush patio. Everything was just perfect the service the atmosphere and the food was the best we have had in a long time4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAte dinner on the Patio atAte dinner on the Patio at The Patio and had a wonderful night. We were there with my eighty year old in-laws and there were good choices (many of them Asian inspired) on the menu for everyone at the table. The short ribs which were served on creamy Parmesan polenta were a real standout. But the real star here is the setting, sort of like your rich aunt's back porch.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food lacked flavor. TheOur food lacked flavor.
The owner was so sweet our waiter was awesome but all of that didn't help the taste of the food
We are sad because it is a beautiful place3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderful, everythingFood was wonderful, everything we ordered was fantastic. the portions were unexpectedly very large, usually at this price point you find "nouveau" tiny portions. The service was lovely and attentive and while it is pricey I would highly reccomend and will definitely be going back!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe occasion for this lunchThe occasion for this lunch was our Book Group discussion which followed lunch. There were six of us and we were seated in a very suitable location on the Patio. Each of us enjoyed our lunch and will go back.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOff the beaten pathPatio Delray was a pleasant surprise. It is a shame that more customers don't venture off of Atlantic Avenue to this venue. We loved the service, the Ambience and the food. The food was way above average. We would dine again in a heart beat! We all enjoyed it!1/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
