Mother's Day Brunch
First time visit, group of 6, was pleasantly received, staff very friendly and helpful, found selection of food limited but adequate, considering the price per person, did not consider it good value, read; expensive.
Did not like the 20% gratuity added to the bill, seemed high for serving water and clear plates from table.
Despite this we found the experience good, but would not recommend it to a friend.

We enjoyed a Mother's Day Brunch Buffet. The food was excellent. The variety of options was tremendous. The price was a little on the high side at $65 per person. The mandatory 20% gratuity was a bit of a rip off considering it was a buffet. The wait staff just poured a glass of water, removed a few dishes and presented the bill. But everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We will be back for sure on a non buffet day.

I took my friend as her birthday treat and what a lunch it was! Lily, the owner took care of us royally. The food was excellent and not the usual fare. Lily even brought out a candle on my friends, delicious bread pudding dessert and finished with glasses of champagne.
This owner has done a great job with the decor and the menu.We felt as if is we were dining in a private home. I would highly recommend this place and I hear they serve an awesome brunch.
Thanks Lily.....We will be back.

I ordered the special a Maui Maui severed with excellent fried rice on a fresh pineapple. The presentation was great and the taste was better. A wonderful experience. They make a great Cosmo. And the house wine was very good.

Great venue off the beaten path
We typically venture out to Atlantic Ave in Delray for dinner, but found Patio Delray through Yelp. The food was outstanding and service was wonderful. Lily (the owner?) stopped at our table a few times to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. Short ribs were to die for!

The food was excellent and Miss Lily was very attentive. The whole experience was great start to finish!

Loved loved loved this restaurant!
From the moment we were seated at our table we felt like honored guests. The food was absolutely delicious and our waiter was able to answer our specific questions about some of the ingredients in the dishes. Our meal from our drinks-appetizers-entree-to dessert were fabulous. ( The warm brownie was to die for!!) On top of this...the delightful Ms Lily opened up a bottle of champagne in honor of our anniversary!! We also appreciated going to a restaurant where the parking was easy and the noise level was quiet....an A+ evening!!

A Gem... A true find in Delray
What a surprise..... Patio Delray is a lovely restaurant... The dining room is perfect.... the outside garden is wonderful (even though it is around a parking lot.... A FREE parking lot in Delray). It is pretty enough for a special Saturday night.... but the prices are ok for a great relaxing dinner after work. Try it... you will not be disappointed...don't miss the soups. The food... the service ... all wonderful. My new favorite!

One of my favorites
Don't miss this diamond of a restaurant on Palm Trail right off of George Bush boulevard in Delray.
Miss Lily does an outstanding job with service and a menu with the most flavorful of dishes.
I especially recommend the Patio Burger and Shrimp Alfredo pasta.
All of the visitors I've brought there have talked about how they can't get this restaurant out of their minds long after returning home, and seek to return the moment they're back in South Florida.
If you live nearby or are visiting, leave hectic Atlantic Ave behind in favor of this superior, quieter, more comfortable, refined and accommodating restaurant that's just a few streets away. And great prices for the quality dishes you'll experience.
Sunday brunch is particularly appealing
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
My entire dining experience at Patio Delray was delightful in every way. The place is beautiful and tucked away. The staff was warm and friendly. Most of all the food was delicious and elegantly served. I will return, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for something truly special.

Balanced and Sustaining Flavors
The crab cake was chunky with backfin crab meat, the pork loin succulent & nicely countered with quinoa. The salmon was quite sweet and I dined on the Singapore noodles.
I prefer a thicker curry sauce & the chicken & shrimp were covered with a fine layer. The shaved carrots & scallions added just the right amount of crunch to balance the softness of the rice noodles. The flavors were balanced and sustaining, i.e. the flavor of the shrimp was not overpowered by the curry. It was quite tasty and I am happy that I ordered it.
The grilled pita bread dusted with garlic was zippy and, as another reviewer noted, this place is a gem. Leave Atlantic Avenue to the tourists, for whom we are eternally thankful, and try Patio Delray. You'll be happy.

Perfect Sunday Brunch..we'll return
This charming restaurant is tucked away off the beaten path and a rare gem! Inventive menu and dishes we shared included Curried Eggs, Roasted Asparagus with poached eggs, and Patio Benedict with blue crab cakes. I would order any of them again. Dessert included house-made rose petal ice cream and the chocolate lover was well satisfied with the warm brownie. The atmosphere was relaxed and quiet; you can have a comfortable conversation and linger over the bottomless mimosa. Patio dining where you can hear the sound of water in the fountain or inside enjoying beautiful Florida-themed art, Miss Lily is a wonderful hostess and knows how to keep guests satisfied. It was worth the drive from Broward county and can't wait to return.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dinner spot to check out!
The owner Lily was very nice an attentive during our dinner. Calamari appetizer was great, tuna entree to die for, filet dinner special was overdone but the sides were amazing. Great spot for a romantic dinner. Would go again!
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I found this restaurant through an open table e-mail & figured to try something new. My friends and I were pleasantly surprised. Miss Lily greeted us right away & was very friendly. The menu had variety & unique ingredients & combinations. Everything was delicious! We were not rushed & were able to enjoy ourselves. I will definitely be returning!

Brunch for Two
Upon our arrival at restaurant we were greeted cordially and professionally. The server was friendly and responsive. The Sunday Brunch at the Patio Delray made for a pleasant and delicious experience.
6/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
My lady and I had Sunday brunch. I knew what I wanted (the Patio Benedict) from looking at their menu on the web. My lady ordered the Curried Eggs. Both were excellent. It's a long drive for us to get there, but we are looking forward to going back.

A hidden gem
Patio Delray is a hidden gem in the Delray Beach area. It has a lovely outdoor dining area and friendly service. Food is delicious, everything from fish to steaks as well as some great Asian inspired dishes. It is intimate and comfortable and we will definitely be back.

Great dining experience with excellent tasting entrees. Lily was a very gracious hostess. We had an outstanding dinner! The pork tenderloin was superb as well as the chicken. I had the asian shrimp dish and the coconut rice was the best I have ever tasted. Great flavors in all the dishes, hats off to the chef!

Very good food, really relaxing
This restaurant has a wonderambiance - very relaxing. It's off the beaten path, quiet, and no one rushes you to eat and leave. Since the food is also very good, it is a pleasure to go to this restaurant. We will be back soon!

Does not Dissapoint
This was our second visit to patio, again it does not dissapoint. The service has been spectacular each time and the food even better. The menu changed a bit from our prevous visit giving us new choices to debate over. Everything was delicious and served piping hot. The only slight negative this time around was the bread pudding. It was not served very warm and was not as good as the last time we ordered it. Nonethelesss this place is a great find and we will definitly be going back. Lily is a doll and took great care of us!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful gem of a place ....
Hidden away from busy Atlantic Avenue is this eclectic, wonderful gem of a place. Just off the beaten path we were so happy to find this fantastic restaurant and enjoy it with another couple. Great food, fantastic service and Lily was a gracious hostess.

A Neighborhood Gem
Patio Delray is a breath of fresh air in the culinary scene. Localed off the beaten path in Delray Beach, this should not disuade folks who really enjoy great food and good times from dining at this restaurant. Miss Lily, the owner and host, is really concerned about your overall experience and is very attentive to your culinary and dietary needs. Although I have had brunch twice at this restaurant, I expect that a dinner experience will be equally exceptional.

Do Not Miss Patio Delray!
Make your way to Patio Delray! Hostess Lily's creative, signature cocktails are a must try. The appetizers are the mouth watering start to the dining experience. Our table started with stuffed medjool dates and a tomato mozzarella caprese - nothing ordinary about either one. The (should be) award winning entree was Garam Masala Dusted Ahi Tuna with mango chutney. THE BEST TUNA dish we've tasted anywhere from Fort Lauderdale to Delray. Excellent quantity and the quality was beyond great - it was pure butter in the silky texture and taste. High marks were given to all entrees ordered. Concensus: we will go back and take other food-appreciating friends! Thank you for the extraordinary taste treats and dining experience Patio Delray.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice experience. Lilli takes pride in her food and presentation

Fantastic little gem
A wonderful dining experience for all. I would recommend this restaurant highly.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I recently ate at Patio Delray. It was fabulous. I had the Indonesian spiced shrimp with a saute of Asian and other mixed vegetables. It was served over rice. My husband had a jumbo (7 oz) crab cake over a succotash of creamed corn and edamame. The crab cake was all crab, no filler. Both dishes were incredible. This was the best restaurant meal that we've had in a long time. I highly recommend this dinner spot.
Miss Lilly and her staff were very attentive and accommodating.
We will eat here again and again.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Patio Delray a delightful surprise
We've lived in PBcounty for 18 years and never knew this place existed. Found it on Trip Advisor and booked thru OpenTable. Met the owner/hostess, Lily, and had a delicious lunch with friends. We were the only folks on a Friday 12:30pm. There's a lovely patio well landscaped so you don't see the parking lot. We had hamburgers and pulled pork sandwiches with home-made potato chips that were seasoned perfectly. Will definitely return for dinner.

Even though I think the prices are high, the food is very good! It is a hidden gem.

delicious creative food,beautiful room, and a friendly hostess who obviously loves her restaurant
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
wonderful dining spot
we have been to Patio Delray several times. The food and service is always excellent. It is a little "off the beaten path" but well worth the trip. The outdoor patio is nice and the dining room is nice also. It is one of our favorite spots for dinner. You won't be disappointed with your meal at this establishment.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
VERY SPECIAL HIDDEN GEM
Once you find it, you will want to go back. The menu is wonderful and creative. We had a large salad that was enough for 4 to share. Orders were steak, pork chop and crab cakes .... everyone cleaned there plate. Don't miss this!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was a little quiet for our Friday night dinner but I have to say, the food and service were both excellent. We order a couple of appetizers (the dates are awesome), I had the NY strip on special and my wife had the crab cake. Steak had a wonderful peppercorn sauce and the crabcake was literally a ball of crab, no useless filler there just the good stuff. Miss Lilly (The Boss) made sure every table was taken care of, even with an odd request I made, no problem. Truly a local gem. Can't wait to go back!

A Culinary Delight
Patio Delray continues to amaze me. Dinner was a true culinary experience. What a chef. Amazing flavors and sauces. Freshest salads. Great salmon and natural chicken. What a wonderful apple tart with homemade ice cream for dessert. Can't say enough about this establishment. Can't wait to make a return visit!
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, glorious food
I love chicken and the dish served here was the best I have ever had.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Was a good deal with the travel zoo
For the travel zoo deal that we purchased: 1 app & 2 entrees it was a very good deal. We started with the fried calamari which was perfectly done and then ordered the crab cake and the asian shrimp dinners. We shared our dinners and agreed the crab cake was the better dish. Not sure that we would come back and pay full price.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
LOVE THIS RESTAURANT!
Patio Delray is a great find. The menu is unique and prepared beautifully. Service is excellent and the atmosphere simply,
lovely! No parking problems is definitely a plus along with both the indoor and outdoor venues.
Can't wait to bring guests!

Nailed it on all levels
Came to Patio Delray for an anniversary dinner last night and was beyond impressed. The owner met us at the door, created impeccable cocktails at the bar and delivered food beyond our expectations. We ate inside due to an uptick in humidity but certainly see the appeal and desire of diners to sit outside on the Patio.
Started off with the dates - order them! Blue crab main dish was insanely good and the Signapore noodles exceeded my hopes. Noodles came with so many pieces of chicken and shrimp that I(as a large athletic man) surprisingly couldn' finish. Good problem to have. We were too full for dessert(next time) but they gave us a tasty on the house chocolate treat as an anniversary token. Class act!

What dining out is all about
From a very well stocked bar to Tuna Tartare to double cut pork chops that melt in your mouth and lovely service, what more could you want for a evening out. Looking forward to our return.

We ate lunch here a month
We ate lunch here a month ago and returned for dinner. We liked the lunch choices and tastes better. Dinner is a bit pricey because everything is ala carte. Lunch is more inclusive and a better value.

Ms. Lilly never fails to amaze
Ms. Lilly never fails to amaze me. This time my wife and I went to Patio Delray for dinner. Always interesting specials and the menu itself is eclectic.with many delectable items. No issue with making a special entree for my wife with Ms. Lilly being very helpful in creating it. Wine list is more than adequate. I highly recommend Patio Delray and look forward to our next visit there.

Brought our dog so we sat outside. The restaurant was very accommodating. Food was tasty and service was great too. Hadn't been there in years but we are looking forward to returning.

Run Don't Walk...
We recently discovered this restaurant and couldn't wait
to introduce friends to their excellent brunch. Many good
choices served and cooked to perfection. Our friends agreed!
Mark Widick's amazing photographs add a wonderful touch
to this very pretty place.

Off the beaten path this is top notch creative cuisine. If it was on Atlantic Ave you wouldn't find an empty table.

My bf and I were very pleased with our experience at Patio Delray. The food was excellent and our trainee server provided great service. We will definitely be back! !
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very nice ambience
Beautiful! I had an authentic tasting Asian dish. My husbands chicken tasted homemade. Only complaint is its on the pricier side. But it is fresh, local farmers, organic food. You get what you pay for:)
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Well taken care of
We were a group of 4 and were greeted on arrival and shown to our table. Our server was still training under the observation of an experienced server though he was very capable in his own right and didnt appear to need any direction. Our water glasses were kept filled throughout the meal. We had a squash bisque that was fantastic and full of flavor. The special of the evening was a Cornish game hen with a Parmesan rosemary sauce which was delicious and makes my mouth water to remember it. We were all drinking different drinks at different speeds and no one had to wait long for a refill. We will be back!
