    Took a chance on an place we'd never been for brunch and were very happy we did. The outside and the neighborhood is nothing special. but the food was superb and the service excellent. A delicious burger and hand cut fries. My friend tried the eggs benedict and they were perfect. No rushing as we enjoyed the bottomless mimosas at brunch.

    We had a party of 6 for a family birthday celebration for brunch. The Patio fit our needs perfectly! No parking hassles, easy reservations, quaint, warm atmosphere, excellent menu options. fantastic food specially prepared per order with great detail to presentation. We were given glasses of water without asking. The bottomless mimosas keep flowing. They even brought us a birthday dessert with a candle! The service was excellent, attentive. No rushing us so we could take our time and enjoy. Nice music played in the back ground. Not a noisy place either we could have a conversation and everyone could hear each other. The bathrooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. This is a hidden gem you should put on your list!

    Excellent food, good service and a friendly owner interested in your satisfaction. The chef created interesting twist on the jambalaya i had, using african spices and flavorings rather the the tradition Louisiana hot stuff. Very tasty! The peculiar part of our visit was that the restaurant was very slow, as it was during our first visit. I hope they are busy during the winter season so they can keep their business afloat. If Patio Delray were on the Ave or Pineapple Grove, i would think it would be packed all the time.

    There were 6 of us and they seated us at a round table. The ambience was fabulous. We had great service and the food was superb. We all had a great time and would go back to eat outside in the patio garden next time. You can even get a really good hamburger. But order the shrimp, you'll love it. We are planning the next time we are going back. It's not the same old restaurant. If you like good food and looking for something different this is the place.

    I met friends at the Patio for brunch as I heard that the food was great. The food was mediocre and the coffee was bad. The patio itself is not fantastic, either. You sit under a plastic (?)/ canvas (?) awning which makes you feel as if you are enclosed in a (hot) tent. In fact it smelled like a tent from my childhood days. The upside? It was quiet.

    My husband surprised me with a belated mothers day celebration even though we both were busy on the actual day. He knew this was one of my favorite restaurants in Delray Beach. We had a nice quiet dinner enjoying each others company with nice wine and beautiful food and unintrusive service. We will have to return with the kids next time.

    Arrived for 1:00 reservation on Mother's Day but would've had to wait a half hour for inside seating. Chose to sit outside on the patio....not too bad as a little breeze was blowing....not much atmosphere out there though....no music....not much chatter among guests....just a lot of fork clanking against plates. Food was good.....service was lacking. Had to remove every plate from our table on each visit to the buffet....waited a lot longer than necessary for the second bloody mary. I have to agree with most people who post on there that the owner is a little rude. If you can get past those few negatives, it's really not that bad.

    Clearly, this was an overpriced and understaffed effort at providing a Mother's Day brunch. Food was mediocre at best, and service was non-existent. To make matters worse, they added a 20% gratuity for this self-serve buffet for a party of only 5 guests. This was a highly regrettable, disappointing, and overpriced experience. We would NEVER consider returning.

    The first time I tried this restaurant was for a Mother's Day Brunch. The food was outstanding and the variety on the menu was more than expected. To me, the restaurant had a bit of a Key West feel to it and had indoor/outdoor seating. The parking lot out front was very convenient. The staff was very nice and attentive. Our waiter was continuously filling our glasses as soon as they were empty. I am looking forward to going back for dinner.

    Dined on 5/6/2014
    We had dinner with another couple during the week, outside on the patio. The restaurant was not crowded and it was a beautiful evening. The service was good but not intrusive and the food arrived at the right intervals adding to a lovely relaxed evening of conversation. We were all pleased with our choices but would not have said they were outstanding but very good. The atmosphere was lovely since the patio is covered and surrounded by lush plants. We would recommend for a quiet evening and conversation but thought the prices were just a bit high for the quality of the food. For dessert we shared and the bread pudding was outstanding, not too sweet or soggy. We would go again .

    Our neighbor wanted to dine there again to order the Pork Chop, everything on the menu sounded so good, he changed his mind 3x's. We love this restaurant - its pretty, its quiet, clean, the food is always super - and it is always a pleasure to see Lily. My friend and I ordered the Paella, our husbands both had the pork chop - we certainly weren't up for dessert because we were taking home left overs, but ordered the apple tart to split - delicious. The menu is varied and something there for every taste! Highly recommend The Patio!

    I took my wife there to celebrate a momentous occasion in our lives and it was a nice place to sit and focus on each other. It was a Monday night so it wasn't crazy busy, but it seems lie a place you could have a fun night with drinks and projector screens and party, but for us it was a nice quiet night. Food was okay; nothing wrong with it, but it didn't blow our minds. All in all, a great little spot.

  • Looks Awesome But Don't Stop
    SecretFoodCriticVIP
    Dined on 4/4/2014
    Patio looked awesome since we saw it being built and would drive by constantly. Decided to stop in and give it a shot. Nice outdoor setting on a beautiful night, the perfect ambience. Started off with wonderful bread and a blend of dipping oil, tomatoes, and a hint of little red pepper flakes which were addictive. We should have stopped right there. Food was cooked well but EXTREMELY bland. Same story with every dish. The food is probably geared toward the 80+ year old clientele who have a thousand diet restrictions and can't have a well SEASONED dish. Bottom line.... Drive by this attractive setting (or stop in for bread only) and get an excellent meal in the perfect ambience ANYWHERE else on Atlantic Avenue in Delray.

    Patio Delray is a nice place hidden behind Areca palms in a commercial lot to give it a tropical feeling. A fish pond and waterfall are nice touches. The menu is interesting though some items are a bit pricey especially sine owner charges extra if one does not want the specified side dish which is absurd to me. The fish stew was fresh and fabulous but owner took it off menu and didn't respond to requests from myself and others I know to have it be put back. More fish dishes would be nice. Cappicuno machine seems to a,ways be out of order. We usually have Max as our waiter and he is excellent. If you need more sauce or gravy for your dish owner will often want to charge you. She needs to learn to be more accommodating to her customers

    It was a pleasant South Florida evening so we decided to dine outside on the charming patio. The atmosphere was relaxed and unhurried, our server was friendly and knowledgeable without being overbearing, but the food was definitely the star of the show. Everything came out timely and fresh, with the first bite we can taste the care and attention paid to the preparation of the dishes. We took a look at the interior and found it lovely with uplifting colors. My friend has a special event coming up and she thought this place would be perfect for a private party. Can't wait to return with friends

    We tried four items on the menu. The food at this restaurant is good, but nothing out of this world. The prices, however, are high. The atmosphere is pleasant in a beachy way, but not elegant. Considering that the food and decor are nothing unusually special, the prices should be much lower.

    We were looking for a place in Delray that had a sit down brunch, not buffet. Since our two seniors like to sit outside, that was a criteria too. Delray Patio is very pleasant. The décor is well done in & outside. The Sunday brunch menu has both traditional items with a twist and signature items. The eggs benedict with crab cakes was delicious. Nice treat was the bottomless mimosas for $14.00. Service was friendly and professional. We would highly recommend Delray Patio for a very delicious and pleasant way to start your day.

    Food was great. Service was fair. Took forever to take our order. We were a group of four. Brought out one appetizer then took another 15 minutes to bring out the remaining ones. Then it took about another 20 -30 minutes to bring out our entrées. Had to repeatedly as for drink refills. They appeared to be under staffed in servers and in the kitchen. That being said, will give it another try as the food was very good.
