Patrona Restaurant and Lounge is located in the heart of beautiful Ukiah, Mendocino County, California. We are a family-run business and view the restaurant as an extension of our kitchen and living room. Our building served as the town grocery store for over one hundred years. Now lovingly restored, it is softly lit with warm brick walls, filled with hand crafted tables from local artisans and run by a staff that cares.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Food mediocre at best and service terrible. Not at all busy but wait staff more interested in talking to each other than serving customers. Too bad after “13 years” they can’t do better. Not recommended

Great meal, a bit overpriced on the seafood entrees; only (small) complaint is being charged for bread and forgetting to serve the balsamic condiments that were supposed to come with the bread.

The food was delicious on this Taco Tuesday, as were the margaritas. We take our friends to show them the variety these treats available at a great price. Although we had reservations, and arrived 30 minutes early for a drink, the bar was full and there was difficulty seating the four of us in a nearly empty room. After finally being seated, we waited 15 minutes before anyone came to take a drink order. We were expected to have our food orders ready at that time. Thank goodness the food offset the very disappointing service.
