    The food was very good. Great menu selections. Portions were generous. I had the scallop and shrimp pasta and my friend had the burger. The crab cake appetizer came with a small salad as well. Overall we had a very nice meal. Would also be a great place to go for a dessert.

    Server was outstanding. She was on top of our order and picked out I was not happy with my meal. There was nothing wrong with it, I just did care for the taste. She took the meal off of the bill without my asking. I was fully intending to pay for it. They really take care of their customers. I will be back!

    Good experience, varied menu, make sure you clarify what you'll get if you don't know your French. Food was smaller portions and on the pricier side for what you get (for some items), but was delicious.

    As part of the lunch crowd, we've been here many times and had most of the items on their menu. Service has been outstanding, the restaurant (both inside and out) has been clean, and the food served has been attractively presented. Most importantly to us: the meals are the right temperature and are delicious! The quiche (all choices) are our favorite items and are served with a salad of dark greens. For coffee lovers: it's some of the best restaurant coffee around.

    We were thrilled to find this Patrick's in Maple Grove as it is an easy place to get to and we love the food. All the choices are great, and I love a restaurant where you can't make up your mind as all the offerings look wonderful! My friend and I each also had a dessert and they were superb. And for once we didn't want to "share" we each wanted "our own" and so we got to taste two....both great! So for a great meal with a lot of choices plus a bakery which you wont want to miss...this is the place to go in Maple Grove!

    We went in knowing this is the first Patrick's that is serving dinner. The price was a little high for the quality of entrée. I did enjoy my Coq Au Vin, but the quality of the dish, as well as my wifes' mussels, didn't warrant the price. The baked brie appetizer was excellent and dessert, of course, was four star. Our server was quite young and inexperienced. One of our party had to ask three times for a glass of water and our empty plates were taking up our table space for far too long before being removed. We will be back for brunch, but I won't be reserving tables for dinner again.

    We were excited to find out there was a Patrick's in Maple Grove. Unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. Service was slow, food was even slower. It took 15 minutes just to get water and wine. I would not recommend this location unless you are bored out of your mind and not at all hungry.

    I took my bf and parents here for my Dad's birthday gift (he's french), and we had just spotted Patrick's a few weeks before while doing some shopping, so we decided to check it out. Very happy with the service, and the food was really good as well. We ordered one of the flambes as an appetizer, and then all order some kind of steak. The side salads are HUGE, and the steaks were delicious, despite being cook slightly longer than we had requested. I would definitely go back though. For 4 people to have a steak dinner, split a bottle of wine, 1 app and 1 dessert, our bill was about $125, which actually isn't too bad.

    We had the crab cakes, mussels, Sea Breeze salad and side of gratin potatoes. Everything was delicious. Guess from the menu I was expecting it to be "fancier" inside, and it was very casual. But the service was friendly and fast and the desserts were HUGE and so good. If I had a small complaint--the tables are very small and the plates and other dishes are quite large, so you run out of places to put things. But that is a super nit-picky thing. We will be back---go for the fries!

    New to the area, we decided to check out the brunch. Not impressed. We are fairly discerning when it comes to "proper" coffees. The lattes' temperatures were cool and the espresso tasted like drip coffee. The pastries were not too bad. Had a blueberry muffin which was very good as well. Had a variety of egg dishes (scrambled, omelets, and quiches) amongst the 6 of us. The eggs were good but the accompanying meats were barely warm. I would have hoped they would have been prepared to order, but minimally keep them hot. Our biggest complaint was the service. Asked for a chocolate croissant to warmed and it was not. Sent it back and it came back cool again. Order another and we had to remind the waiter 4 times before it finally came.

    I went with a group of girlfriends at 5:30 on a Saturday. Maybe the 2 full tables at that time of day should have been a clue. I thought the dinner menu was pretty pricey (I looked at the lunch menu online which was a lot more reasonable) for the atmosphere of the restaurant. The Bistro salad I ordered came with bleu cheese and the waiter said no other cheese could be substituted as the craisins, walnuts, and cheese toppings were already mixed together (good luck to anyone with a nut allergy!). The salad came with no breadstick or baguette or anything - which was kind of disappointing in a French restaurant! Overall nothing was terrible but nothing was great enough to tempt me back.

    I took my wife to Patrick's for Mother's Day brunch and we had a great time. The food was really good and it was nice to have a different cuisine. The kids loved the long pastry counter where they could see (and began for) all of the yummy desserts. We service was surprisingly good for a holiday brunch time. My only regret was that I didn't have room left to try the Ryan's cake. Next time!

    Patrick's Bakery in Maple Grove was wonderful. There were so many dinner choices, I definitely will be returning. Two of us had mussels which were great (especially when there is such good bread for sopping up the juice!) Mussels come with a huge cone of good tasting french fries. Our table also had the shrimp Eiffel and Sea bass, both of which they said were delicious. Prices are quite reasonable as are wine prices. Nice to see in a restaurant. So glad Patrick decided on Maple Grove.

    Lunch at Patrick's was good, not outstanding as I had hoped. My friend had the chicken burger which she said was ok. I had been looking forward to having the onion tart which I had eaten in France years ago and of which I still had very fond memories. The tart was quite oily with large chunks of almost raw onion, instead of the thinly sliced carmelized onions I remembered. Also, the crust was doughy instead of crisp. The side salad was pretty dull. However, to save the day, the "sara cake" was a decadent serving of sponge cake with chocolate ganache...really delicious! The place was crazy busy on a rainy day! Not sure I would go back again though.

    The Richfield location is much smaller and more intimate than their new place in Maple Grove. Maple Grove location is loud in the front but quieter in the back where we were seated. Still Happy Hour when we arrived and we all (4 of us) ordered most of our dinner off that menu which was great. I had the crabcakes which were nicely presented. Three mini crabcakes each nestled on top of a dollop of seafood sauce aeoli. The baguettes are awesome - thought we were in Paris. Hubby ordered the sliders which he enjoyed - not your basic burger sliders, but with a nice French twist - a slice of brie cheese. Shared a huge order of frites which we couldn't finish. Picked up some treats at the bakery on the way out - bakery is awesome.
