Our server was fantastic! I wish I remembered her name because she was great! Of course, the food and wine was delicious, I could have those bacon-wrapped dates every day!

The service was impeccable from beginning to end! The food was delicious, especially the seafood paella that we shared. We have already recommended Patria to friends and family, 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!

Great tapas, typical of what you would enjoy in Spain. It was pricey so I only go on special occasions. Would enjoy more meat On the plater when ordering the special Jamon (ham) some plates were somewhat lacking quantity but certainly not quality. John

What a gem! I must come back to try more dishes. The food, though in smaller portions than expected, was delicious. Loved the butter lettuce salad and shrimp dish. Great location. One small suggestion would be to place a sign off king to dorect customers. Will come back again!

Absolutely delicious food and great atmosphere. Service was fantastic, we never had to wait more than a few minutes for anything we needed. The cocktails, while pricey, were fabulous. The food was phenomenal. Overall, with higher-than-average prices and higher-than-average quality, this restaurant is great for special occasions or the occasional, top-notch night out.

The Patatas Bravas was very bland, it lacked tasted and seasoning.

The desert menu was very disappointing! To be honest, by far the worse restaurant I’ve been too in terms of deserts. Waste of money!

I arrived and the lady put me aside and served 2 other tables of similar size that arrived after me. Then they said the tables are all full, and asked me to wait a few minutes. The wait was a total of 30 minutes which is ridiculous considering I shouldn't even have had to wait, and all they gave me was a glass of champagne that I didn't even want. Instead they should have thrown in free appetizers or something better than a glass of champagne. This hasn't happened to me before but the way they dealt with the problem was not acceptable for such a high end restaurant. Food and our server were good as always though.

Arguably one of the best Spanish tapas restaurant in Toronto. One of my goto places to dine when I'm in the downtown core; the ambience in the summer is absolutely amazing, if your lucky enough to get a patio seating in the warmer months you are in for a quiet and reserved seating that makes the romantic date extra special. The food and service is the highlight of this place, come hungry and definitely try the paella which is chalk full of some of the finest and freakish meats, vegetables and seafood in the city. Their small plates especially the chorizo croquette fills the hunger void while your paella is made fresh to order, be warned the paella takes 45 mins. The staff and service is by far one of the best I've seen, extremely knowledgeable and consistent as well as extremely personable. The restaurant is on a bit of the pricey side, although definitely worth it.

The menu is extremely limited. Tapas lacked variety & refinement (I have been to Spain & experienced the real thing). . Meatballs entrée was heavily spiced, lacking intriguing combination of flavours. Calimari was correctly cooked, but with only seven or eight pieces was insufficient. The two vegetable side dishes were delicious. Sangria was also good. In short, the meal was poor value. The reason I chose Patria was that it happened to be a convenient location.

Food was excellent but a bit pricey. Loved all the tapas plates. Don't know what can be done about the noise level, but it is very difficult to carry on a normal conversation. Nevertheless, still worth a visit.

We were two couples who went on the recommendation of someone else. The food was delicious and although this is a tapas restaurant we left feeling more than satisfied. The waiter was very helpful in picking dishes and suggesting the right amount for us to order. The dessert (cheesecake) was tasty but in my opinion not worth the calories or cost.

Wonderful meal. Best grilled octopus. So tender. We had 5 dishes as recommended by our server. The grilled shrimp, the dates wrapped with bacon and manchego and the octopus were my favs.

She didn't work with us in explaining the menu properly . We told her we were Hungry had long day nd to recommend items that come out quickly ..she couldn't even do that properly. The wine was lovely. She didn't even say what her favorites are or ask us if we want to dessert.
