Bridget and Craig, two winery chefs, opened Patrona in 2003. The simple goal was to enjoy the great area we live in and share this with our family and friends. Our mission statement is simply “Happy People”. We need to be happy about what we do and how we do it. Our guests need to be happy and feel good as well as our neighbors and future generations. This means a thoughtful and sustainable business. Our menu changes are based on today’s catch from the gardens, ocean and local purveyors.
A great way to celebrate our first anniversary at the same location as our first date!
Service and attitude of the waitress was excellent! Wine list needs some more variety. Two people at the table we looking for a Merlot or Cab by the glass. Noise has been an issue at dinner when Patronas is much more crowed.
Over priced. Food was bland and not very flavorful. The French fries were over cooked. I had the black bean burger. Was very bland. We had calamari for the appetizer. Was a very good orange spicy sauce. But the calamari was very chewy. Warm tap water was also served. But the place was very clean.
Sent burned fish back...served half ckicken with bread knife....eat lunch two weeks earlier..fish&chips good
Service started strong then went downhill.
Love when they have edd "southern style dishes. Thanks Craig.
Really nice place and good food options. Our server was outstanding and very attentive.
It was just weird that our reservation got cancelled bc we were seated on another table. Maybe their system needs to be tweaked :)
We enjoyed dining at Patrona, when we were spending a night in Ukiah. Our ahi entrees were delicious!
Good food, good service and high quality ingredients. I have been going to Patrona for the last 10 years
we brought family visiting from LA for dinner. everyone enjoyed themselves and we were very proud to show off our favorite place. our server Amelia is tops!!!
Ribeye came medium well instead of medium rare
We spent the weekend at Vichy Springs. Decided to go out for a romantic dinner. Patrona was perfect! Beautiful setting, kind staff, and wonderful food.
As always Patrona is exceptional for lunch or dinner. The food is outstanding, well prepared, and delivered to the table in a timely manner. Service was excellent, couldn't ask for better.
Great music. Great food. Seemed to know about the online reservations. Quick checkout. Always a plus!! 🔥❤️🔥
Patrona has always satisfied our food cravings- specifically the calamari is always a hit with us. Everything has always been great- outside seating is very nice !
Our waitress, Amber, was outstanding. She was friendly, helpful and attentive.
All the appetizers were excellent, Brussels sprouts, calamari, flat bread with Gorgonzola.
The only negative thing about dinner was the french fries, that came with dinner, they were over cooked and not edible. However they were removed from our bill, and that counts for great service.
I would definitely go back.
We were celebrating my brother and sister-in-law 49th wedding anniversary and they enjoyed the dinner very much.
Always wonderful, it is one of my favorite places!
One waits way too long for their meal.
We had a do over on cocktails, because supposedly the bartender couldn’t read the server’s writing. The menu has several contradictions between the actual food vs. what’s described. And really, quasi plastic dishes? We can’t have china? The food slides on the plate, so it resists cutting. In closing, terrible experience. We will never be back.
Return visit~on vacation from Hawaii~
Love the outdoor seating!
Staff is friendly~Will return on my next
trip to Ukiah...💖
Great service and wholesome food! Was open late and we appreciated that!
It's our go-to restaurant in Ukiah, whether it's for a friend's birthday, a large or small group of friends, community dinner night, a business lunch - whatever...we are never let down. Service is efficient and always courteous! We always recommend Patrona when someone asks where to dine in Ukiah.
Maitre’d was good and got us our drinks when the waitress disappeared. We were served appetizers but no plates. Couldnt get a refill on the wine. Seating was crowded but is usual here. Waitress was no where to be found. Very unsatisfied.
We have eaten many times at Patrona. Each time we return , we hope things have improved. Service has been a consistent problem over the years. . This can happen from the time you order drinks till the end of your meal. This time one of our party ordered a cocktail and we also ordered a bottle of wine. We were told the selected wine needed to be chilled , so we ordered some bread to munch on while waiting. The bread was delivered with no plates- it was never noticed that we had nothing to place the bread on. . We ordered our entres and again a long wait. Seeing the positive reviews which mention good service , I can only think they have put up with too much bad service in their life.
Our meals were very good... fresh, tasty, & satisfying [ Lasagna & trout, Calamari app., & Chocolate Torte. The lasagna portion was rather small, the hash with the trout wasn't brussel sprout/with bacon & potato, but kale. The coffee was fabulous
It was GREAT as usual. Fabulous staff and delicious food!!
Our waitress, Amelia was great! Delicious lasagna. I wish it had been a little bit larger portion but I still didn’t leave hungry. The apple strudel and creme was delicious as well! I’ll be back!
We had a very good experience.
My steak was ordered to be Medium and it came back more rare than I’d like... the server was very kind to say it can be thrown back on the heat for a minute... it took a bit long to get it back, as it was done in the oven and then came back well-done. I was still happy because it was still very tender and delicious. But other than that everything was amazing. We will definitely come back. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. My kids ate everything they ordered so I was so pleased you offered such tasty dishes, so much the kids enjoy it. We can’t wait to go back. What a treat. Thank you!!
We ordered drinks and food. One of the drinks had food frozen in the ice. When I got my next drink it tasted way to much like Rose and I felt like I was drinking a bottle of perfume. The food was delicious, but unfortunately we found two hairs in our chicken. I think maybe they were just having an off night, and I would be willing to give Patrona another shot.
I actually made reservations for CHOP CHOP (or thought I was) but the online reservation said nothing about it being closed (the next day I had an email from Patrona asking how the service was.. then I realized when I made reservations, I was actually making reservations for Patrona (not knowing). When we arrived, it was closed, so we went to Patrona (knowing same owner). Have eaten here numerous times, we always enjoy ourselves! However, Monday was a little different. I was not crazy about the food this time (was just okay) and our server was very nice and attentive UNTIL it was time to get our check. we waited 10 min after we finished our food, even had the CC on the edge of table (we were both on our lunch hour). I finally had to take the bill up front so we could leave. SO, that was my only true complaint.
The food was mediocre, the service was slow and confused. It seemed over priced for the quality that we received. I was not expecting much going in but it barely hit my low expectations.
Menu gets boring. Bring back the wonderful fried artichoke, panflova and lattes!!!
The service was great and the food was very good. The decor was a little funky and I was not sure what it was suppose to represent.
Outstanding service. Very relaxing. Enjoyable and delicious food. A fun experience. Can't wait until next time to see what special dish will be served.
Great service in an attractive room and deck. Food is quite good, especially for Ukiah. Menu had a wide selection and food was well and attractively prepared. I had nettle ravioli was very tasty and light. Good and well priced wine selections. Staff graciously made an exception and let me have dinner with my dog on the deck, which was closed due to a staffing issue.
A lovely quiet outdoor lunch. Our server was fun, informative and a very nice young lady and the food was wonderful, especially the calamari.
As usual,your place is definitely VALUE FOR MONEY
Patrona is my favorite restaurant in all of Mendocino County!!! The service is fantastic. I have become friends with everyone who works there. They prepare my favorite cocktail the minute I walk in the door. The food is consistently delicious and beautiful. This is the perfect restaurant.
My 87 year old Auntie lives in Ukiah, and eating out with her is always a special occasion. The service was warm and inviting, the menu selection was fantastic, our food choices were perfect, and the wait staff was attentive.
Wonderful food and our waitress was very nice and knowledgeable.
As always, the food was terrific; fresh and well thought out. We come for the community dinners as often as we can. It feels like our home base, were we try and celebrate with friends, and bring our family when they visit. I have never had an unpleasant time here.
