Never a bad meal at Patrick's. Casual atmosphere with fine food. Amazing deserts. Sunday brunch is one of the best in the Cities. Steak frites dinner is like an evening trip to Paris. Don't pass on the French Onion soup.

The Cafe is doing a terrific job with the social distancing and it feels good and safe to be there. We keep going for pick up meals during the "stay home order " and now we were back in the "terrace."
Service is vey amicable and pronto.
The menu lacks of gluten free items and it was hard to find something to eat. I was ok with just the "creme brulle." I hope they make it with the right ingredients.
Overall it is a great experience as usually.

Patrick's does not look like much from the outside - it's located in a suburban strip mall. But inside it features a fantastic French menu with all the usual classics and an array of amazingly good pastries.

I made a reservation (for lunch) only so that we could be assured of a seat outdoors. It was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. I tried something different: Bouchee a la Reine – $13 Flaky puff pastry filled with chicken, chives, mushrooms and dumplings in a creamy sauce. It was amazing comfort food! Sis had a turkey sandwich. She ate it all so I'm assuming good things. Love the CONSISTENCY of this place.

Ate lunch on the patio, all staff both inside and outside had masks and were cleaning constantly. Food was good, I don’t remember the portions being so big! But that meant I got to eat it again for dinner. Love the simple and delicious meals and friendly staff.

They are doing a superb job at social distancing on their large covered porch. The food is always absolutely delicious - salade nicoise, quiche, tuna tartare, pastries - and the price is a good value. All of my outside dining right now is at Patricks!

Delicious food. Reopening has not affected the great quality and taste of his great menu. Some items are sourced internationally so are not yet available. But the wonderful pastries and breads are there. Hurry they go fast

This was a great dining experience. We had never been here before and reserved patio seating. On the way to the restaurant a storm started to come in. I was pleasantly surprised upon my arrival to find though that the entire patio is covered. It was a wonderful night. The food was awesome! They put so much Lobster in the Lobster Mac (please never change that) we had wonderful deserts, good drinks, and a bonus storm as entertainment. We will definitely be going there again soon.

Patio dinner was good. Large portions and nice atmosphere. Note: We would like to see some more sophisticated wines on the all french list. Perhaps a Chateauneuf du Pape or a Pomerol?

Valentine’s Day dinner. My halibut was tough and tasteless although the little bit of sauce on the plate was tasty. Menu did not specify a vegetable but mine came with mashed potatoes. I would have preferred vegetables but was not asked whether I had a preference. The restaurant was COLD because people were going in & out. Would have been nice to turn up the heat on such a busy evening. Most tables had reserved sign on them so they were certainly expecting the higher level of activity.

Very quiet table; you could carry on a conversation. Wide variety of menu options, though, oddly, no chicken entrees unless you count Cornish game hen. There was only one server but she was attentive and helpful. Nice selection of wines. Would definitely come back here.

I love their mochas, hot chocolates, eggs Benedict, beef bourguignon and macaroons. It's a nice little cafe to pick up a treat or sit down for dinner.

Always enjoy our meals at Patrick’s. The added touches of bread and small canapés (it’s called something else but can’t recall the exact name) before our meal and the little sweets afterward really round out the experience and make it special. The only disappointment is I never leave enough room for dessert. I have to make a special trip just for that.

Patrick's is UNDER RATED!!! This place is wonderful! Excellent food, good service and a restaurant that you can have a dinner conversation at without straining to hear the person across the table!! Love this place. Already planning for the next time!
