Diner Reviews
  • "We had an exceptional meal at the Patio. We had not been here since it was the Lamont Street Grill. The ambiance is totally different now - trendy, upscale, with a great tapas menu. The food was outstanding, including stellar crab and ahi appetizer and a braised pork shank with asiago risotto underneath. Best new spot in PB."

  • "My husband and I had a lovely dinner last friday night at The Patio. Thoroughly enjoyed the food, service, ambience and wine. The only negative to our night was that we were seated inside the restaurant/home in a small room with crowded and loud people sitting at them. There was quite a din of noise that was overwhelming at times. I would definitely come back, but request a different seating area."

  • "Food was delicious. Waiter took great care of us after our food was slightly delayed, we didn't even have to ask! He brought us a free appetizer and it was super scrumptious. The ambiance is top notch. Very chill and relaxed with a beachy vibe and high end furniture."

  • "The Patio on Lamont Street is one of the best restaurants in San Diego! I've been here several times and always enjoy the food. I've found it great to dine with friends or for business. This past time I ordered a flatbread and my friend had a salad. It looked like we licked our plates. Their wine list is unique with wines you won't find other places and pair well with food. Always a safe bet to eat at The Patio."

  • "We went for Sunday brunch. Most customers were Exuberant Millennials - i.e. very noisy, everyone jostling for to out-do each other at their tables, so an actual conversation at our table next to impossible. Service was great, receptionist tried to find quieter table, but really, there aren't any, and the walls/ceilings are designed to bounce every sound off of them. The food was very good. Sincerely, Non-Millennial Fogey"

  • "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."

  • "The Patio was all around very good. The wait staff was fun and timely. The ambiance was easy and quiet. Happy hour was the best..... choice of comfort food (burgers) or the full dinner menu (more fu fu food). Half off drink price at happy hour also. Good place.... good food.... good service."

  • "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."

  • "The patio and the decor especially appeal to me, but I also think the menu selection is nice. There is something for everyone, and the staff seem to be flexible for additions or deletions to the diner's tastes and/or food needs. I would definitely dine there again and also recommend to a friend."

  • "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."
