    As usual the meal was fabulous at The Patio. The duck was scrumptious and the fish special was out of this world. The wait staff is well versed in the menu and give good suggetions. If you like dining outdoors, their terrace is well heated but the seating is at small tables for two. The restuarant is noisy, mostly because it is always busy so make sure to make reservationss or you will have to wait to get in. The rumor is that a sister restaurant is opening close to Hillcrest soon which is great news for San Diego.

    I never got the chance to eat at this location when it was Lamont Street Grill, but when they put in the Patio, just the appearance was enough to draw me in. Such a fun and comfortable restaurant, and the ambiance was awesome. We showed up for happy hour (such a good deal) and tried the sausage appetizer, and the steak flatbread, both of which were so tasty. They started live music on the patio with a young woman playing the keyboard, and it was beautiful. For dinner, between the four of us, we had the caesar salad, the ahi poke tacos, the endive salad, and the kobe burger, and everything was absolutely delicious. We even got complimentary desserts because we were celebrating birthdays :) Can't wait to go back!

    I loved the atmosphere. The food was great. My friend and I shared the bread and brussels sprouts. I am not a huge fan of blue cheese, but it added just the right amount of taste to the dish. When they said the bread takes 10 minutes, I was curious. Yep, the bread is fresh out of the oven in a little dish. 4 perfect little rolls with honey butter on the side. I ordered the Ribeye cap steak and my friend got the Ahi Poke tacos. We both had a great meal. The other great thing about this place is that it is dog friendly. My friend brought her cavalier king charles spaniel. They had a wonderful treat for Louie. Something with bacon, beef, and peanut butter. They also brought him a bowl of water. Will be eating there again.

    We went for dinner on a Saturday night. We didn't wait at all with a reservation. We brought our two dogs, the staff was so great and friendly to our dogs. They fed them a gourmet cookie made by the chef and they have water bowls for my dogs. The food was so good that wanted to lick my plate :) i ordered the duck. Service was outstanding. The best I have had in a while.

    This was our second visit to The Patio. Our server, Sokol, was outstanding and made our meal even better. He a charming and attentive, knew the answers to each question. He kept updating us on the status of our meal and "defused" my husband's normal impatience when service is slow with his charm. He is a gem! The bone-in rib eye steak, a new item, is a huge portion. it was a bit overcooked for the medium rare we ordered and Sokol would have taken it back if we wanted (my husband chose to keep it) and promised to inform the chef and make sure our food was perfect next time.

    We have dined now several times , brunch and dinner. Both times the service and food were great! Just a little too loud to carry on a conversation when dinning with 2 other couples. We loved the large, comfy and cozy booths but if your on the end we can't hear you(: Also love that they have valet parking.

    I will be honest. I think that Patio is very accomodating for dog owners. My date's dog loved the complimentary snacks and water. We could truly focus on ourselves. The staff was very friendly. The people who dine at the place are also of quality making this a chill relaxed yet classy place in Pacific Beach.

    Everything was delicious. Our server was attentive, I wish I could remember his name but I remember it being too complex for me to be able to spell anyways. The octopus changed my view on octopus forever. The scallops were also absolutely perfect. It is a very small space and we happened to be seated right by the door. It was odd because the restaurant called me and left me a message saying they could only "hold my reservation for 10 more minutes" but I had already been seated for 20 minutes at that point haha. But I totally understand, I used to be a hostess. Things can get lost in translation.

    Startlingly good and lively bistro in remodeled house in midst of Pacific Beach. Lobster Corn dog is fun, tasty and filling --as were the very creamy & pungent brussel sprouts. Not so thrilled with the flatbread, but overall a real charmer with some real adventurous and tasty food.

    We were at the Patio on a Tuesday night (Mardi Gras!) when there was a wine pairing dinner event upstairs. The place was packed and really alive....The food was wonderful! The Scallops off the menu were great and the rest of us had various dishes from their "specials" of the day...all of which were also were great. We will be going back.....but perhaps not during Mardi Gras.

    We went for brunch - the menu was very diverse with breakfast, salad, sandwiches that would suit the 'normal' patron as well as creative dishes if you want to try something new. Everything was delicious and fresh. Our group of 5 + child all enjoyed our meals plus specialty brunch beverages (I had a mule - in a copper cup, as it should be). Prices were reasonably inexpensive (meal + specialty mixed drink <$25) for the atmosphere of patio - our table was comfortable bench style with pillows behind our backs for semi-reclining. The wait staff was friendly, informative, and very accommodating for our requests regarding the 16mo old in our group.

    The Patio is a gem in Pacific Beach. The outdoor feel of the dining area combined the eccentric menu of flatbreads, seafood, and meats, this place is a must try for everyone in the San Diego area. The decor is awesome with a live plant wall and fire place seating. The cocktails also have a good kick! Try the Mister Chow!

    Loved the duck. Scallops were perfectly cooked but were not wrapped in bacon; there were a few scraps of bacon on the plate. Puree of butternut squash was way too salty. The restaurant is very noisy and crowded to the point that our waiter tripped over the floor heater. The ratio of people to walkable square footage is so tight that I am surprised the fire dept doesn't object. Our waiter was terrific; the restaurant is perfect for young and agile people. We are not. I hope there new restaurant opening in Mission Hills caters more to the older, not-so-agile, hard-of-hearing crowd.
