As good as advertised
I had always wanted to go here but just never made it, everybody talked about how good the food was so when me and a date were discussing options, this came up and she had never been either. They met my special request for a secluded or romantic table and had us in a booth in the back.
Owner came out to help us with a wine selection. Server was excellent in reading our energy and allowing us to talk and not rushing our order or checking in every few minutes. This was very appreciated. Food was excellent and perfectly prepared as ordered.
Definitely recommend and will return.

Thought we would give it a try
We were looking for a nice local restaurant in the West End and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and the staff really cared. We enjoyed the meal. We walked out full but not over stuffed which was great. Not really a place for any kids. More of a high end restaurant for a nice dinner or lunch.

Great location and welcoming ambiance.
I had the crab cakes and my wife had the beef ribs. The squach soup was excellent. I would come back just for the soup.
Service was perfect.
Thanks for a great dinner.

After not having been to Patina Grill for over 10 years (I have no idea why), I was more than pleased to have returned. The wait staff was wonderful and the chef was very accommodating. My wife is vegan, so she asked the waitress if there were anything they could prepare to suit her dietary needs. She came back from the kitchen very quickly with the chef's recommendation for a custom dish that nailed it. I assure you, it won't be another 10 years before we return.

Having enjoyed the new Patina since it opened, this was the best experience yet. Five professionals enjoyed some of the best meals of our LIVES, augmented by the consistent exceptional service and bar experience! Far and away the best restaurant in Richmond. More importantly though, one of the best restaurants in VA for sure and in the mid-Atlantic as well. A true gem!

One of my favorites in this area.
Relaxing, imaginative menu, fresh ingredients, best service (get Laura).

Nice dining with a few twists
We had not eaten at Patinas since it was reopened with a new farm to table menu but were pleased with our selection for a girls night out dining option. The restaurant has kept all of the interior of the old Patina's which I always liked but the menu is completely revamped. On Thurs nights they have a 3 course option for $35 but we each decided against that as too much food for this evening. My winter squash soup was Devine! Hot, full of flavor and I paired it with a second course of roasted quail for my dinner. My friends got the field green salads and braised short ribs over risotto and rockfish. A chocolate dessert was shared . Wine list was ample without being overly lengthy and the service was attentive.

We have been a couple of times now and both times the food is excellent and also the service in a beautiful setting.

The location for this restaurant
The location for this restaurant was about the only thing that wasn't impressive. Everything looked new and the food was local and fresh. Everything we ordered was delicious and I would highly reccomend going to Patina.

We had not been to Patina
We had not been to Patina since the management/ownership change, and this occasion was my wife's birthday. It was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, and the miserable weather made for a light dining crowd. However, we received stellar service at both bar and table. The quality of food has significantly improved since our last visit several years ago. My wife had the Flintstone-portioned short rib while I had the corvina special - both were superb. The fashionable West End needs to realize what a gem it has here compared to the plethora of mediocre chain restaurants in the area. This is the sort of fine dining one expects in the Fan or Downtown. We will return.

We recently moved to the Short Pump area and are always looking for great non-chain restaurants. I had seen some good reviews of Patina and thought we'd give it a try. We went on a Wednesday and they offer a great 1/2 off deal on house wines! The food was incredible! We had the crispy pork belly app, flat iron steak and pork chops. Everything was fantastic - we all but licked the plates clean! The decor and service was equally enjoyable. I also love that they support local farms. We live right around the corner so will definitely be going back for more!
