We chose this restaurant because it was near where we were going afterward and we were so pleasantly surprised! I expected a drab "strip-mall" look, but it was clean and colorful, and the food was very good! I visited Argentina recently and the food at El Patio seemed very "autentico!" In addition, the desserts are incredible! Don't just look at the menu, check out the display cases! If you eat too much at dinner, you can take dessert to go! We will definitely return.

Made reservations at 7, but had a bit of a wait due to lingering at the table meant for us. (What can you expect on a Saturday night?) We enjoyed the sweet breads and chinchulin! Done perfectly. Excellent chimichurri! Steaks were cooked perfectly as ordered. Recommend the Ny Strip. Delicious desserts! Everything is Very affordable as well. We really enjoyed the live entertainment they had. Lovely voice. Nice selection of Argentinian wines. Cannot wait to return.

El Patio looks desolate from the outside but vibrant and full of life inside especially Friday and Saturday nights when there is life Argentine music.

What a wonderful place for dinner. The wine choices are spectacular and varied, the pastries and desserts are delicious. The service is very European - no rushing. The cuisine is Argentinian, with a focus on steaks! My daughter's favorite is the Milanese - a breaded fried steak. I had the New York Strip and it was delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for a wonderful family dining experience.
