Great selection of breakfast options for Sunday brunch which is served until 3pm. The food and service were wonderful.

I based my review on the price range comparing it to others in the area in this range. I consider Patrick's as upper mid range with great ambiance. Service was poor and my cocktail didn't arrive until after my food and we didn't get a water refill. The waiter explained that he was attending a party of 10 that were very demanding and he said he would comp us a dessert, which we didn't take him up on, but he did try to remedy the situation. The other complaint was the men's bathroom mainly by the urinal was disgusting, which ruins the image of such a nice looking restaurant over all. The food was good, the price was fair and if the service was better and the men's room was clean I would say it was a really great local restaurant.

I think the the $8.00 lunch specials are a great value. I had 1/2 Quiche Lorraine and a cup of cream of mushroom soup. The soup is one of my favorites. Of course I brought home eclairs for an evening treat.

This was our first visit to Patrick's. It was busy and we liked the lively atmosphere.
The rack of lamb was very good and the accompanying sweet potato and the cauliflower gratin were also good and of generous portions.
We had the cream of mushroom and the roast red pepper, tomato soups. Both were delicious.
We plan to return soon, before or after a movie next door, for more soup and to try the sandwiches!
I forgot to mention the desserts. The Opera Cake was delicious too!

Made reservations for 2 on Friday; we arrived and were seated withing 5 minutes. Ordered drinks, bread was served in a bread sacked to keep it warm, which tasted good. Ordered Escargot, which arrived with a large soup spoon that was impossibly large to scoop the escargot out of the cermamic escargot dish. The waitress was confused when i expained and pointed to the dish and large spoon. She returned with a small hors d'oeuvres fork. The Escargot was bland and tough, like it was overcooked and missing garlic, salt. We ordered A Ceaser Salad to be split. The proportions for a split salad were generous, however the lettuce was very rusty. My wife ordered the Filet Mignon, and I ordered the Filet Mignon with shrimp. We both ordered our filets medium rare. Both arrived cooked correctly, however the meat had a strange taste and smell; also my shrimp was dry and overcooked. Both the filets were served on top of potato cake/ potato galette with shrimp on top. Neither of the steaks had any seasoning, and the strange flavoring may have been caused by the cooks shortcutting the with the filets on top of the potatoes in the finishing oven, which is possibly why my shrimp were dry and over cooked also. We ordered the Sarah Cake, and Trilogy Cake to go. Both desserts were very good. During our visit the waitress had asked us several times during our meal if everything tasted OK, including the manager. We didn't offer complaints to either in the restaurant, because none of the issues could have been easily rectified. We expected much better, since Patricks does offer a good menu with high end choices with prices to match. This was our 1st time trying Patricks, and based on our 1st experience were not sure if we would consider giving another chance.

My wife loves this restaurant and we’ve gone 4-5 times in the last 2 years. It’s a cool looking restaurant. Our server looked liked a veteran server. She didn’t even need to write down our order. Servers usually bring a freshly baguette and butter shortly after guest are seated which we never received until we asked a manager for it about 5 minutes after we received our entree. My wife’s order was wrong. The water doesn’t taste like it’s filtered. I had the forester burger which was just average. I won’t get it again. I will get flat bread if we go again.

I love Patrick's but my last visit wasn't that great. There were there of us and we all ordered quiche. The quiche came cold so we sent them all back. It took a while and our server was awesome, and received nice warm quiche. The worst part was there were fruit flies or gnats flying around our table the entire three hours we were there. We spent most of the time talking and trying to kill the pests.

Patricks has a very nice selection of different types of food. They have lovely breakfasts, and great lunch or dinner options. I particularly love that they offer different types of soups - in the fall, chicken wild rice and pumpkin are favorites. The servers are friendly and efficient.

We were seated just off the kitchen so the ambiance was lacking but the food was good and presented nicely. Our server Paul, however, was superb. He not only checked in with the table frequently, he addressed each of us personally for any feedback or if we were in need of anything. We had a special diet issue and he handled our questions and included the restaurant manager in on our meal selections so everyone knew the intolerance issues. His wine knowledge was excellent and he made us feel very welcome. The restaurant was a place for us to go on short notice. Paul is a reason for us to return.

Love it here. Mussels on Friday & Saturday nights are excellent. Kids eat free Wednesday’s and Sunday’s. A clown visits on Wednesday’s to make balloon animals and do face painting for kids. Fry cone is fantastic. Desserts are awesome. Never crowded, nice servers. In the past, I’ve been annoyed that drinks aren’t included in kids meals, because server said it was free but then billed me and fought me on it. Otherwise, it’s great.

We really liked Patrick's atmosphere. The good is very good. The desserts are wonderful. Our waiter was very nice . But the time from ordering food to receiving it was way too long! It took over half an hour ! I don't know if the cook was new or they didn't have enough help. I hope that issue gets better!

It was our first time there. We had a great meal and great service. Looking forward to enjoy some French/American food. Just one thing: since your menu calls flatbreads also tarte flambées, it would be nice for the server to call them just that, not "pizzas".
The guys behind the dessert counter were great, had a nice conversation about their French origins.

Our server seemed distracted despite the restaurant not being full. Our three steaks were not cooked per requested (rare was medium rare, medium was medium rare, and one medium rare was rare). Deserts were awesome as usual. Music selection was just weird (a variety of pop songs across the decades) Classical music or some Jazz would be much better.

Our waitress seemed overwhelmed and did not get the service as we usually receive at this establishment . My husbands burger was great. My Shrimp Scampi had no garlic at all. The shrimp tasted good but not really any flavor on the sauce for the angel hair pasta. I left some of the pasta on the plate. I should have read the description closer. I will not order that again. Many of their dishes are bursting with flavor but not this one.

I had been to Patrick's twice for breakfast. I loved it. Perfect everything, so I decided to try dinner and drinks with friends... not great. They were out of EVERYTHING we wanted for drinks. 9 different choices... all out. How is that possible? The manager apologized and bought us a round of the tap beer we were left ordering. The burger was fine... server ignored us. My recommendation is breakfast and dessert. Skip everything else.

This was my first time at Patrick's and was very happy with the food and of course the desserts! The only item I found disappointing was the coffee. Although I am not a coffee drinker, I do like an occasional cup of decaf with dessert but the coffee served is a reminder of why I don't drink coffee!

We went for Father's Day the place was empty. They were out of almost everything said it was a busy morning They had a chef so one would think they could prepare anything on the menu the food was nothing special had the BBQ chicken Flat bread good portion , chicken dry and unseasoned BBQ sauce was good. The rest of my party had California burgers once again nothing special the burger was dry and no favor. Not a very friendly atmosphere we had a four year old they brought crayons but we had to ask for the kids menu. Asked for lemon water they brought regular water.

This restaurant is pretty bad, the service was terrible it took them about 45 minutes to get us our food. They are very slow, it really seems like they don't care at all about the people who are eating. The always run out of food easily. One time I went there at 12:30 in the afternoon and I had to pick 3 different choices because they had run out of food. So, therefore I am never going back to the restaurant. One positive thing though is that the food was not bad.
