Celebrating our long friendship! We were warmly greeted and seated near the open kitchen area, which was terrific. Our server was friendly and helped guide our menu choices. All the food was delicious.

The main courses were not very hot. Not even warm, in fact. Although it is stated on the menu that paella takes 45 min would have been nice to be told in advance.

Ambiance And service were great. A good spot to go with a work crowd.
The food was a bit greasy and flavours were not as authentic as they could have been. I prefer the smaller Spanish restaurants in town which capture the Spanish kitchen better.

Excellent ambiance and service for a date night or dinner with a group of friends. We ordered a variety of items-- the highlight for us was the octopus, which was a special that night. We also had some Manchego, salad, cauliflower, paella and lemon meringe dessert. Cauliflower and salad were quite good, but the Paella was a bit disappointing-- would have liked to seen a better "crust" on the bottom. Dessert and after dinner drinks were excellent. Overall a lovely experience and great menu- definitely things we want to return to try!

What a wonderful meal. They were just opening when we got there and even tho they weren’t really open, they took care of my elderly parents who couldn’t stand or walk for long while I parked.. Much appreciated.
Every dish we ordered was fantastic and full of flavor and nice presentations. The waitress was attentive and explained every ingredient of every dish. Would love to go again and would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a nice meal out.

I found the portions extremely small. You will need to order 4-5 dishes per person to be full, which will cost a lot.

I have only heard good comments about Patria, but quite let down on my recent visit.
Our waiter didn't seem to enthused to serve us and we had to ask additional staff (who were lovely) to serve us our ordered refreshments and actually take our food order. Waiting almost an hour to order is a bit extreme for brunch.
The food itself wasnt great, most of us ordered the feldio pasta and dessert afterwards didnt improve it. Bottomless Mimosas were good and refreshed regularly.
We mentioned to the manager that our server hadn't returned in a while and he apologized but at no point returned to see if service had improved. Dissapointing customer care.
I'll need to try dinner here to write it off but based on that service I wouldn't rush back.

Staff was amazing! Ordered the paella extra early to make sure there was time as I requested it to be extra crispy. Manager came over to make sure everything was to my liking! That extra service of going above and beyond makes a great difference in my experience.

I have been trying to get into Patria for a while as it has been difficult to get a reservation. The suggestion of having 4 plates plus a small paella left us filling very full. I would back it down to 2-3 dishes. The atmosphere was good with the noise a bit on the high side.
The service was very good but I found it rather expensive and the value for money was a little off.

Amazing time at Patria with girlfriends...the food was fabulous, the wait staff provided just the right amount of attention as our focus was catching up and the ambience was fun! Food wise, it was all great, but croquetas de jamon, empanadas, wagyu meatballs, secreto iberico were my highlights.

Our server definitely set the wrong tone. He looked like he was annoyed to serve us from the second we sat down. It really upset us as we were trying to have a girls night out. Then we wanted to order the paella and he made a stink saying it was going to take an hour long. The whole night felt off. The only person that made our night better was a female bartender lightening up the mood and offering to help us take group photos.

We dined here for a birthday dinner.
The food was really good. I love being able to order a bunch of small dishes to get a nice variety of flavours.
We had about 5 small dishes to share (between two of us). I absolutely loved the mushroom croquets, I was tempted to order a second portion.
We also shared the small scallop paella which was delicious!! Only thing to point out, the tables beside the windows felt a bit drafty. I was cold throughout the whole dinner. If you get cold easily like me, don’t sit there and request elsewhere.

The paella was not professional. It was burned and with not enough rice.
For $200 dinner for two, we expected much more.

Food was incredibly overpriced for the quality. The two best dishes were two if the simpler ones, the patatas bravas and the mushroom croquettes.

Beyond that the food was mediocre with needless additions ruining either the flavor or texture of the meal. The dried mushroom bits on the mushroom rice dish would be a particular standout on ruining what might otherwise have been a nice dish.

Monday night at Patria was a delight. It was the perfect place for us to celebrate. The food was top quality and the service was impeccable. Sadly, like so many of Toronto's restaurants, the ambient noise level in the room was much higher than the decor suggested. Employing an acoustic consultant as part of the design team would have made a huge difference. It is not too late. It cold be a much more elegant experience with less noise.
My real complaint is the reservation system. Yes, you, Open Table! We wanted to eat at 6:30 but the only sitting we were offered was 5:45. The restaurant was half full from when we arrived until we left at 7:30. What's up with that???? Please fix it, or just answer the phone and take reservations.

Overall a fabulous experience, with a few wrinkles.

Hostess who brought us to our table did not ask to take our coats like she did the next table who sat down after us. Not sure why.

The server Nathan (think that was his name?) was amazing though! :)
