I made the reservation with open
table, got the confirmation email and when we arrived to Patria to celebrate my mother's birthday, it was closed. It was Memorial Day at 5pm, most restaurants were open. I don't understand why would it let me book a reservation on day that they were closed. Nobody has reached to me regarding this matter. "

Have eaten here several times.
The menu is slightly different. Some items better and some not. But, overall great meal, great waitstaff, fun evening out."

Very nice place but the service
was extremely slow and my food was not hot. The drinks were ok. I've had dinner here before and had the same experience. "

I would recommend the seafood
paella and calamari. I had a watermelon mojito that was delicious. Our server, Frank, was fast and courteous. He knew the menu and gave great recommendations when asked. The parking is a bit cramped but they have a parking attendant that's very helpful. I wasn't too happy about the table we were given. It wobbled and the area felt more like their lounge area instead of dining. It did give us some privacy. Overall a great experience with minor hiccups."

The food was VERY bland, nothing
like typical "Latin" food. I requested my meat and vegetables be separate from my sauce. Unfortunately, my food was floating in "sauce". I waited on my waiter which took approx 35 min after waiting for LITERALLY over an hour for our food. It took another 30 min to be corrected, at this time my other guests were done eating. To make matters worse the manager greeted us and offered shots on the house as we had a concern and he found out it was one of the guests Birthday. I guess the mgr forgot because the shots NEVER came!!! Who does that to customers?! Not great food and even WORSE customer service! Left a lot to be desired!!!"

Food was good. A little over
priced for the quality. Maybe it was just my dish - skirt steak. I've been here before for a tapas dinner and that was better. Next time I'll try the fish entree. Sangria was very good. Red sangria this time. Last time I had the white sangria. Red sangria is better. Lovely decor. Perfect for a date night out and dancing after dinner."

Great food &Service was amazing
from the manager to the bust boys. We also stayed after diner for drinks and music and it was a blast! The two different music rooms had something for everyone so, thank you!I had a 30 person party on Saturday night and every one had a Great time! I had a custom made cake arrive at this location, hours early and they properly stored it for me with no problems. To be honest, I was worried about a local spot losing its reputation after its been open a while but I am glad to report that I am a satisfied customer and my sister and her friends frequent here often and now I see why. Thank you Patria!"

I hosted a dinner party on
Saturday, 12/28/13 and to say the least the food was fabulous!! I honestly was not expecting it to be as good as it was! The meat was soooo tender and very well seasoned and didn't take long to come out the kitchen! The waiter could have been a bit more attentive as he was quick to brush us off after half the table placed their drink orders. Not sure if he was just trying to get thing sout quickly but overall I would defintely come back!! Its worth the $$$ and the DJ afterwards in the lounge mixed a variety of music. Down side is the shots are water downed and sooo small!!!"

I had my first date with my
current bf here and decided to come back for my graduation dinner. The service was great, everyone was friendly, and the food was great! I could not have chosen a better place for such a major celebration. Thanks everyone!"

Two of the Rib eye Steaks were
over cooked they were ordered medium rare and were served well dune . Other wise everything was very good I would go back again"
Dined on 11/16/2013
The service was spotty at times
but the food was delicious! I would definitely go back again. The small plates are perfect for sharing and could be meals in themselves."

Had a tapas dinner with white wine
sangria. Tapas was okay. More variety would be great. The ceviche was delicious. The white wine sangria was very soft (light). I do want to try the entrees next time around. Great bar scene and dance floors."

Kitchen very slow dishes came out
one at a time with 6 diners it was awful"

We returned to Patria for a quiet
dinner on a Friday evening and were not disappointed. My steak (with onions, potatoes and roasted beet) was perfect, but my wife's Pintado (a fish dish with rice, plantains and salsa creole) was better! Portions are great and the service is just right. One of the wait staff even entertained us with some fine vocals + guitar! We will return .. a local find, and a great atmosphere!"

The Patria restaurant was awesome.
food delicious!! Servicce outstanding but a little bit exprensive for the location and the food you get!! every side is separated!!"

Saturday night at 7:30 to 9 pm and
the restaurant was filled with little kids running up and down the middle of the restaurant. The noise level was extremely energetic. The food was good, the waiter mumbled a lot but was accommodating. I ordered a Pisco Sour (they had Pisco drinks listed on the menu) but was told they could not make it. Very disappointing. The Sangria was very watery and lacked any depth. Our appetizers were delicious - the guacamole and chorizo dishes. Although not on the menu, a salad was made for one of our party. The main dishes were enjoyed - skirt steak was fantastic, the paella was good, and the pork chop was also delicious. Due to the crazy scene of children everywhere, we did not stay for dessert."

Invited family and guest from out
of town to dine at Patria. Location good, food and service very good. Very courteous staff. Plenty of space for private parties and dancing."

Food was great, drinks were on
point and reasonably priced, wait staff was attentive and cared for our every need....this night out was to celebrate my girlfriwnds birthday which the staff sang her the longest birthday song while playing guitar. ... add on to all that once dinner ended our room turned into a club/lounge which was the perfect way to cap an amazing experience with some dancing.... dj played a mix of bichata, slasa, hiphop, and house music.... had an absolute blast definitely will be going back soon"
Dined on 6/8/2013
drinks/sangria were all VERY good! I would recommend adding some type of cake to the dessert menu; coffee was good (strong and hot). Great waiting staff, very helpful with meal suggestions/details and were friendly and efficient. Our experience with the parking was very peculiar. The parking attendant was extremely rude and very gruff. He informed us that the lot was not available for another 30 minutes after the restaurant had opened for business on a Saturday evening...how weird is that?! In addition, he had no uniform or shirt w/decal that would leave one with the impression that he was even associated with the restaurant. Hmmm...would we leave our cars with this guy, I THINK NOT!!!!"

HAD AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE AT
PATRIAS. CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT FROM THE MINUTE I ENTERED THE DOOR.FOOD WAS GREAT AND THE ATMOSPHERE WAS NICE. THANK YOU AND SEE YOU SOON"

Overall we were disappointed.I had
been reading about Patria for sometime now and was looking forward to our evening.While in Florida I even came across an article touting the hottest chefs and chef DiCataldo was mentioned.this whet my appetite even further. Imagine our surprise when the first thing that greets you is the valet parking for the restaurant that actually charges you $10.00 to park your car!!$10.00 for what?The privilege of eating in their restaurant?? And it wasn't even courteous where they come to your door to let you out...they stood in the back of the lot and make you walk to the restaurant door!The food was lukewarm,small portions with the shrimp in my dish miniscule.Although tasty,it wasn't worth the hype.The mixologist?"

Had a dinner of tappas which were
very good and 4 selections were more than enough for dinner. The chips and salsa served while we waited were delicious. The plantain chips with the guacamole were a nice change."
Dined on 3/28/2013
The table we had was wobbly, so
they quickly moved us to another. Drinks took 15 minutes to come out. Dinner was good. They sent us a round of drinks for everything. Service was very attentive. I enjoyed my dinner, as did my date."
Dined on 3/23/2013
This was another wonderful meal at
Patria. The ceviche completo and the steak tacos were fabulous. The paella was very good with each seafood item added sepately so as to not overcook anything.The rice was more like a risotto but very good. We also enjoyed the cheesecake dessert. The servers were very pleasant and the service was well paced. We can't wait to go back."

I'd been to Patria for the club
scene, but this was my first time Having dinner and the food was amazing. From the appetizer to dessert to the drinks, everything was Flavorful and filling."
Dined on 3/1/2013
Atmosphere & service was
excellent. Appetizers were very good. Two out out of four of our dinners were disapponting. Steak & short ribs mostly fat & not seasoned enough(especially the steak. Paella was good. Dessert fondue was very small. Not enough fruit for the price. Cheesecake was good. Overall we enjoyed our night out for one of our birthdays. Wonderful birthday performance by staff. Menu selection not enough. We may try you again."

The food quality was exquisite.
You could actually taste the freshness of the ingredients. The portions were ideal. I would definitely recommend you give it a try."
Dined on 2/22/2013
Although food was good, service
was horrible food service took nearly 2 hours just to be served hostess was extremely disrespectful and rude. I felt that the clients are treated with the "I don't care attitude" overall awful experience but food I have to say was very good."
Dined on 2/16/2013
My experience at Patria was mixed:
hostess harried, service slow, and we were asked to move after seating. A complementary appetizer of chips and salsa helped smooth those ruffles. Our entrees were mixed: Lomo Saltado=excellent; Paella flavorful/seafood plentiful; Seco (short rib)underseasoned & sauced; Cornish hen special disappointing. It was a birthday celebration so the dessert came with a sparkler and the waiter sang and played guitar--very nice. This place has clearly become a party spot which takes away from the dining experience a bit. It was Friday night so I'll give it a pass on that one. Reservations are a must! The menu was interesting and the prices right so we'll give it another try."
Dined on 2/15/2013
This is a truly beautiful
restaurant and the ambiance was ideal for a romantic Valentine's Day dinner! I was disappointed in the special prix fixe menu that was offered on that evening, as I felt the choice of entrees was very limited. The food was all well prepared and beautifully presented. We did not visit the downstairs bar scene, but by the time we were leaving, it appeared to be crowded and lively!"
Dined on 2/14/2013
Service was very slow, took about
20 minutes just to get to each portion of the dinner and we had a four dinner dinner so a lot of time was wasted just waiting for everything including the drinks. The food was mediocre however we were on a prefixed menu so options were very limited. Would not recommend this place for a special occasion date."
Dined on 2/14/2013
Our Server was AWFUL!!! the food
was so, so for the price and drinks very over prricedd"
Dined on 2/14/2013
Been to Patria a handful of times.
Can't go wrong with any of the appetizers. Absolutely delicious! My entree was not so great-- tasted old and reheated. I had to send it back (and I rarely send food back to the kitchen, but this dish was inedible) Server was very pleasant replaced my entree with another, which as okay- not great. Dessert tasted like freezer-burn. My advice-- ask your server if what you are ordering is fresh or you will be dissapointed. Overall, I will keep going to Patria. Even though my last experience wasn't the greatest, I'm confident the staff will do their best to fix any issues."
