    Both food and wine lists had outstanding quality and our waiter did a great job guiding us through both. We knew the paella would take time and so ordered that immediately. Everything was fantastic and timed to perfection. Definitely going back.

    Lovely food at Patria.friendly service but the kitchen was slow in producing each course and though we were not in a hurry we did have to ask about the status of the tapas, with waits of several minutes in between each.

    Went to this location for brunch and we were immediately greeted with excellent hospitality. The ambiance was excellent. Music was just at the right level to still be able to carry on a conversation. Service was wonderful. Best of all the food was incredible. The combination of flavors were wonderful. Would definitely go back again next time I'm in Toronto.

    new tapas place in gentrified area of King west of Spadina; modern décor, funky looking gets very noisy. Good selection of tapas all of which were delicious; we had a very waiter who guided us through the menu also suggesting an excellent sherry and wine from their decent selection. very busy even on a cold weeknight. Gets pricy as portions are small.

    I love Patria, every time it is always amazing, consistently awesome, service is impeccable. I have been here over a dozen times and never have a complaint, and I am very picky! It is priced decently and worth every penny. The wine list is all from Spain, comprehensive, and overall very good. The food is some of the best in Toronto, at a more reasonable price than most. Wholly recommend! Make a reservation weeks in advance if you are looking for Thursday to Saturday.

    I took my nieces for their birthdays. We went on a Sunday night. It was quiet and easy to hear each other. Relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent. The waitress was very helpful when it came to ordering. We ordered the right amount of food and her recommendations turned out to be excellent. Everything was delicious. We had rib eye steak, lobster paella, salad, and a couple of appetizers, tomatoes on toast and grilled peppers. Nothing disappointed. Even dessert was delicious.

    This was my 3rd or 4th visit, but last time was several months ago. Food remains excellent, service is helpful, list of Spanish wines commendable - ask for help since most are unrecognizable. We loved the new heated outdoor patio .. pleasantly tucked between buildings, it has a real European feel to it!

    After hearing all the Patria hype we finally decided to check it out. Great restaurant however DO NOT order the Paella as it took almost 2 hours to come our. It actually ruined our dining experience cause by the time it came we were no longer hungry and it was late. I wish the server would have notified us early on to say it was longer than anticipated and we would have ordered something else.

    My partner and I dined at Patria for a celebratory dinner and both of us enjoyed it immensely. Attentive service from a knowledgeable server who recommended excellent food and wine suggestions. The space is lovely and energetic, a bit noisy at times, but entirely enjoyable. The food was terrific and authentically Spanish in flavor and style. A great find... we will surely return soon.

    Tapas style dishes. Service was excellent. Best dish is the pork flank steak. For larger appetites choose the cornish hen- very tender. Another nice touch is the cava by the glass (3 oz, 5 oz or bottle). Note tapas dishes Spanish style yet we never saw cornish hen on the menu in Spain. The menu is Canadianized so don't expect all authentic Catalon tapas- though they do have patatos bravos con huevos.

    A superb brunch for four that fed us amply with different tastes, all beautifully done. We four had eaten at Cava two days before, and the two meals were easily among the best we'd eaten in years. The brunch crowd is quieter than the usual Patria one--and better. This is really a 4.5 star rating.

    The food is definitely good, but nothing is spectacular. It is definitely overhyped and overpriced. But if you can afford to casually spend 15$ on a small plate, Patria will suit you. The atmosphere is nice but some tables are definitely cramped. No complaints about the service.

    I like Patria, and often bring my friends to the restaurant. However the last two visits I have had the same waiter, who is a little less than friendly - to the point that my guests have commented that they would not return, and not recommend the restaurant to others. It's unfortunate, because the other staff that I have interacted with have been great, and their food is excellent. I definitely will think twice before deciding to go to Patria again.

    An excellent choice by my daughter LICA; for our first time to visit Toronto, this is a perfect dining place to try out tapas and Spanish cuisine which we don't find in Calgary, AB. So wide a selection of tapas to choose from, savor the delicious Croquetas De Pollo, Jamon Serranom and Pimientos Rellenos De Buey which are highly recommendable. We capped the evening with their signature Patria Paella coupled with Capon Al Ajillo Y Almendras. And the service, is superb beyond compare. Every server spends time to explain the dishes they were ushering in our table. For those who are visiting Toronto, as well as those who live here - this resto is worthwhile a unique dining experience.

    I was looking forward to the paella, but the waiter implied that it was for 3 or 4 people. We opted for small plates, and the food was good but the portions were small. We saw the paella when we were leaving, and determined we would have had no difficulty finishing it. We also had trouble hearing the waiter as he talked very softly. We also felt the waiter was trying to be a bit intimidating. We came away hungry after following the waiters suggestions

    Chose this place to catch up with a friend I had not seen in a while and was not disappointed. Devin our server, was extremely knowledgable and his description of recommendations for the evening left us salivating! Loved the bacon wrapped dates and flank stake. Cocktails were very reasonably priced. Sat on the patios and was surprised to find ample room! A hidden gem and one that I can't wait to return to.

    Service was very good but you have to go in a group. Was not able to have any conversation with my wife and definitely not a place for a romantic evening out. Food was good but Paella had 3 shrimp and 2 pieces of Lobster which included the scale end of the tail with no meat in it. Not what I would consider quality or value for $60. Probably will not go back.

    Great wine, food not so much. A lot of sweet ingredients, their famous grilled octopus wasn't that great. 5 pieces of octopus on top of sliced potatos - my 13 year old daughter can cook better dishes! Loved the wine but we paid over $100 a bottle! (and we had 2), anywhere you get a $100 bottle of wine you know is going to be good so I wouldn't go back.

    If you love the best iberico ham there is...go to Patria. We were amazed. Also their spirits are very well chosen. We had a meat paella, which tasted excellent. Different than the classic paella but very well done. The service was very professional and caring without disturbing our conversation. Indoor and outdoor seating is nice, good interior design. It is a true find in Toronto and a gem for sure.

    We visited the restaurant to get a light meal on a Sunday night. We had some tapas, shared a main course and a bottle of wine. The lobster paella was marked as "market price" and I should have asked how much that would be. It ended up being $80 which was a lot more than we expected, especially considering it had one lobster tail and three modest sized shrimps scattered around it. Add in an $80 wine for a "so so" bottle and the tapas and shared dessert, tax and tip and we spent $275 which is a lot more than we were expecting and hoping to pay for a meal. There was nothing special about it but it certainly wasn't bad either.

    Patria is very true to a Spanish Tapas theme in the food, the beer and the wine, making this an authentic experience. My concern as I looked at a menu of intrigueing, but foreign dishes, was where to begin? Well that is where Patria's true colours were shown, the incredible & professional staff of passionate and engaging individuals tookbthe experience over the top! My evening was memorable for all the right reasons, an interesting journey of tastes, textures, bold flavors and tremendous wine. Thanks everyone for making it a great evening!
