The tapas were great. Potato’s Bravas were soggy and egg not hot. Portion on Jamon was far too small for 30$ - literally five thin slices, 6$ for each quarter of a fork full. Asparagus was over cooked and felt mushy, didn’t think red pepper paste matched the flavour, but that’s just my taste. Steak was 75$, small maybe 14oz for price, was chewy and cut was bad that we cut around 40% of the rib eye - really bad piece of meat. Too bad. Our meal was 350$ and we felt like it should’ve been 150.

Very good tapas - I've been to Spain many times and my only thought about the food at Patria was some of the dishes could have been simpler like you get in Spain.
But we had great food, wonderful wine - would go back again.

Service was great. The waiter we had was very knowledgeable and friendly. Had great recommendations. Since it’s tapas you’ll have to order a good number of dishes if you’re used to eating larger amounts and it can get pricey.

The restaurant's ambiance and service is very good. Its great that most of the menu is shareable but i think its more for 2 people not for 3. The food is great.. maybe next time we would try the paella.

Great food and really great attentive service. Especially helping us pick out a lower cost wine that fit the tastes we described. It was my mom's first time there and she absolutely loved it.

I had lunch on Sunday September 8 with my best friend for her birthday, and it was a beautiful experience! The patatas bravas is a must-try. The desserts were delicate and had multi-level flavours ...SPLENDID EXPERIENCE!!!

It’s been 2yrs since I’ve dined at Patria and I brought a girlfriend there for dinner after our tiff movie. Reservation was set for 8:30pm and I received a call confirming my reservation earlier in the day. Great follow up with the reservation so expect a call with your reservation. We were offered the option to dine inside the main dining area or outside and chose outside which had the advantage of being cooler and less noisy. I found the main dining area to be too warm, stuffy and very noisy. However, the lighting was dim creating a warm and cozy feeling. Outside lighting was brighter but still cozy and the noise level was way better for conversation without feeling like you would be speaking too loud just to be heard.
Service was okay considering it was a busy night but recalling my previous dining experiences at Patria it started off as mediocre. Our waitress didn’t go over the menu or offer to explain the features of the day. Refilling our water and clearing our plates was consistent and as the night progressed service got better.
The one dish we enjoyed the most was the gulf shrimp from the features of the day. It was set in a garlicky, lemon and pesto sauce which was great for dipping with bread. The shrimp had a nice springiness but the sauce was the winner. We had 7 dishes in total and the shrimp was the winner for the evening. Next was the mushroom croquettes which we enjoyed but wasn’t a knockout. Order it if you like a creamy soft texture ...think risotto with a fried crispy thin skin. The cauliflower dish was new to me and was a disappointment. Think roasted cauliflower setting on top of a very thick creamy sauce. The cauliflower was cooked well but the Marcona almond sauce was definitely not our favourite. The previous menu cauliflower dish was way better. We’d try the asparagus dish next time. Overall it was good but not stellar. It just wasn’t how I remembered it dining there several times with my husband two years ago. Great to try for sure.

The food was fantastic. We were a party of 4 and we tried 12 different dishes including dessert. Every single thing we had except one was fantastic. The only thing which wasn't fantastic was the patatas bravas which was good but pretty ordinary. The desserts were sublime. The paella and chilli rellenos with oxtail were to die for.

The service was excellent. Every suggestion the server made was great. Our server had the uncanny knack of arriving just when we wanted something or wanted to ask him something. He was very very good at his job.

The ambience was very good.

We will go back there soon.

Lovely Spanish style tapas, absolutely delicious sangria and impeccable service. The patio is quiet and secluded, a feat to be achieved on busy King West. The perfect place to share food and catch up with friends.

My husband and I were celebrating our one year anniversary at Patria. What an experience. Our server planned our entire meal for us and surprised us with every entree. The food he chose for us was absolutely spot on to what we love to eat and cooked to perfection and were like little bites of heaven. We savoured every bite. Our dessert plate had written on it "Happy Anniversary" which was a beautiful touch. I would highly recommend Patria for its atmosphere, friendly staff and outstanding chefs. Well Done.

The patio was so nice and relaxed (much quieter than indoors). The food and drinks were great and the service was excellent. Overall a lovely night out and would return again.

Came to Patria for the first time to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was quiet loud so I’d recommend this restaurant for a more relaxed, after work experience rather than something intimate.

We dined at Patria for our anniversary. Both the service and food were great. The ambiance is fantastic. Low-key and comfortable but elegant enough for a great date night. Staff went out of their way to help us celebrate our anniversary. Only caution, our waitress recommended 2-3 dishes per person but then a different waiter took our order - he said 3-4 dishes per person so we added two more. It was too much! We should have listened to our waitress.

Patria was a delightful find, tucked away in a hidden alcove. The atmosphere was welcoming although a little loud. Our server Sandy, was impeccable. His knowledge of the menu was terrific and conversation was a pleasure. The food was outstanding although the Wagyu beef a slight disappointment. It was priced accordingly however.

Attentive service without being intrusive and great food. We had requested a patio table where it is quieter but it wasn't available when we arrived. Instead we were given a free glass of cava while we ordered and started inside, then were moved out to the patio when the first table was available. What could have been an unpleasant experience was completely avoided by the care and concern of the wait staff. All of our selections were delicious - pan con tomate, queso con truffles, octopus and Patria paella but the scallop dish with chorizo was lick-the-plate good and we had to order a second plate and more bread to slurp up the wonderful oil. Service was well timed with our dishes arriving just as we needed more food. A wonderful evening!
