Excellent food in a relaxed but refined atmosphere. Casual dress but linen tablecloths and napkins. Broad menu with excellent choices from steak to seafood. Mussels available Friday-Sunday. The best crab cakes we have had in the Cities. They compare favorably to Maryland crab cakes. Nicely paced service.

Excellent food. Was glad I
Excellent food. Was glad I had made a reservation, even though going early, as it was busy. In spite of all the tables being full, the volume in there was very pleasant for visiting and feeling like we were having a relaxing evening out. Service was very good, with all our needs anticipated. Definitely a go to for a pleasant, casual evening.

On diner's meal wasn't good
On diner's meal wasn't good - steak in "Steak Frites" was tough and had gristle, but the other two meals were excellent. During the week, there is no table service; you order and the food is brought to you.

We went to Patricks for our anniversary as I like French food but don't like to head downtown. The food was excellent and the service was as well. I liked the fact that it was fairly quiet. The only negative was that my husband expected the apple desert to be warm but it was chilled. We will definitely be back though. He is crazy about their croissants.

Where friends dine with friends
The dining experience, the menu, and the service are all a perfect combination of formal and relaxed. The dining space is just the right size to guarantee great service and a sound level that insures great conversation with good friends. And we love the food.

Four of us got together to celebrate a friend's birthday last Friday evening. The guest of honor and his wife had never dined at Patrick's before (we have dined at Patrick's many times). The birthday "boy" ordered the Filet Mignon, while his wife ordered the Salmon. My wife and I ordered the Salmon and the Shrimp Daily Special. All four entrees were outstanding. My friend's Filet was outstanding and it was accompanied by a Peppercorn Sauce that was absolutely delicious!!
The Salmon and the Shrimp were wonferful as well. The service, as always, was outstanding. Our guests commented that they will definitely return. This restuarant is a real gem...be sure to visit and experience the wonderful food and service!!

A good spot for a meal
A nice selection that is not your everyday menu. Bakery is great. Breakfasts are nice.

A little gem in a strip mall
The Th - Sat dinners at Patrick's are consistently great...imaginative menu, casual atmosphere, hospitality galore. If this menu were served at a "hot" neighborhood location, the place would be overrun with customers!

Way more than you'd expect...
...from a bakery. Outstanding French-based entrees, burgers, and sides. It's really more of a gourmet restaurant with the option to take out both dinners, sandwiches, and desserts/baked goods. My wife had the Sea Bass; I had the Beef Bourguignon. Sea Bass equal to preparations at the top restaurants in town and better than most. BB very good although a bit on the soupy side. Pleasant if somewhat bustling atmosphere. Great for outdoor dining.

Great food, unassuming and pleasant atmosphere-- don't let the parking lot fool you into thinking Patrick's will be ordinary - it's not!

This was my first time at Patrick's and I had a wonderful time. The entire evening was very relaxing and laid back. The food was wonderful and our waitress was attentive but gave us our privacy. My friends and I were there for 4 hours enjoying the food, ambience and company.

Great as ever
Excellent menu. Bread is wonderful, desert is a difficult set of marvelous options. The French Onion soup is quite good. The Brisket salad is good but not outstanding. The lamb chops/rack of lamb was outstanding. The mussels are good.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner there on a Friday night. We each had a fish entrée and both were very taste. Loved the amuse bouche and the small chocolate hazelnut candy at the end of our meal. Service was good, everyone was friendly.

Pumpkin Soup was incredible.
Pumpkin Soup was incredible. Complimentary bite sized appetizer and post dinner chocolate sweet were extra nice surprises. Ryan cake was delectable. Hannah was a terrific server - pleasant, knowledgeable and attentive. Whole experience was delightful - looking forward to returning soon.

Don't shy away because it's French
Many restaurants claim they are French cuisine simply because they use fresh ingredients or because they have mastered the technique of serving very small proportions, Patrick's serves full size portions and stays true to French style cuisine. This is as close to a French meal that you can find. We've dined here five times and have been extremely satisfied each time.
They have somewhat limited seating so make a reservation for diner to assure you can get in.

The desserts at Patrick's are works of art. The food its all good, from the fresh baguettes, to the interesting burgers and specialties. But even if your not hungry, you can't pass by these desserts. Fabulous!

Patrick's is always good.
Patrick's is always good. Went there for my birthday and had a great burger with real french fries and a marvelous Napoleon. This place is in a strip center in a generic suburb, so the good bristo food is counterintuitive. Highly recommended..

Always a welcome date night
Don't be fooled because of the location of this place. I'd love to see it not in a strip mall, but that doesn't distract from the amazing food and - dare I mention - the dessert display. It's lovely enough to make you want to skip dinner (but don't!) and sample desserts. I've had the duck a l'orange (perfect risotto in a restaurant?!?!! Delightful surprise) and beef bourguignon - both excellent. I highly recommend the wine selection as well.
