Had a really nice fall themed dinner. Loved the specials this week. We shared the pistachio crusted goat cheese salad and it was one of the best I've had. The warm ricotta appetizer was unique and tasty as well. And will you look at this lamb? Perfectly rare, well seasoned with a nice char. Really lovely. Our server, the managers and bar staff were attentive throughout, without being obtrusive. My bestie and I had a really nice evening out. Looking forward to the next time!

My guest and I enjoyed the new mid-fall menu including newly offered craft cocktails and the new take on Black Forest cake! Our server, Brody, was attentive and explained the new entries to the menu perfectly.

Service was great, our waiter was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Food was outstanding, although, $50 for a 6oz. steak is a bit much in my opinion.

We had a perfect evening at Patina. The room is beautiful, the food outstanding and the staff is of a very high caliber. We were greeted by every staff member that we passed from the valet, to the hotel desk staff, to the bartender.. and on.

We went for our two-year anniversary dinner/my birthday. It was our first time here and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our server Matt was amazing (thank you) and the other staff we interacted with were extremely friendly. The food was great, some dishes we tried like the pierogies were a little lacking in flavor but overall we had a great time and will definitely return.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. All the staff, from the hostess to the servers were absolutely wonderful, they were friendly and appropriately attentive. The service was perfectly timed, and the entree's arrived hot and perfectly seasoned. Complements to the Chef and his staff. It was a very enjoyable experience!

The food was good. Our waitress Jessica was awesome! I wish we weren't sat at a table so close to other customers. The five tables squished next to each other are way too close. There was an open booth. I wish we were sat there. Nice restaurant. Good athmosphere.

Salads definitely lacking. Dressing & greens nice, but so little finely grated cheese that it didn’t add any flavor. Those who ordered smoked salmon added to their salads were extremely disappointed: fine flakes mixed in providing very little flavor for $7.00?! No bread/rolls with the salads.

Terrible rude service. Our party was asked to leave out table because the waitress said she needed it and the resturant was empty I will never never never go there again and I have told everyone I know about our terrible experience. They emb erased us, we were a very respectful group, no one was REALY drinking much, we spent a lot of money there and got treated terrible. I hate this place, I hope it goes out of business , it dose not deserve to be in that beautiful hotel

I have also spoken to another person that was in your group that voiced her concern for the way that you were treated. I am so sorry for what happened. This is not our standard operating procedure & the employee that decided to take matters into their own hands has been dealt with. I sincerely hope that you will consider giving us another try so we can show you what Patina 250 is all about.

Dined here during restaurant week. The decor and ambiance are very nice. The valet parking very convenient. Upon being seated we were greeted by our server and offered choices of water. Our server never offered us anything from the bar. I had to tell her we each wanted a glass of wine. We dined off the restaurant week menu which gave us an appetizer, meal and dessert for $40.19 each. For the appetizer my wife chose the pierogi. It was a large pierogi with a rather dry filling sitting on top of a mountain of sour cream. Besides the pierogi being quite flavorless the over abundance of sour cream made it cold. I chose the Caesar salad and found it quite good and adequately proportioned. For our main course my wife had roast chicken which she enjoyed. It came with a delicious side of wafer thin stacked potatoes and mushrooms. I chose the trout almondine. The presentation was a bit awkward. It came skin up with the almonds and capers on top of the skin. I’m thinking most eat the fleshy white meat of the fish and skip the skin. I had to move the capers and almonds off and then remove the skin to get at the meat. The portion of meat left was quite small and not satisfying. It came with some leafy garnish and nothing else. Our meals came with dessert. There were two to choose from. I chose a chocolate item and my wife a flan. They were out of the flan. She really didn’t want the chocolate dessert so went without. I would have thought they would offer a substitute. There were bread plates and knives next to us. I’m not sure why as we never seen bread. We dine out frequently and thought restaurant week was a way to give customers a chance to try new places to dine. We had heard good things about Patina 250 but didn’t experience it ourselves. I will however give them another try hoping this was just an off night.

We try out new restaurants during restaurant week - you never know how they are going to handle it.
Patina 250 kept it professional, the food was good and our server was awesome - we will
add Patina250 to our go to list when we are downtown.

I ordered a Gibson but the bar did not have cocktail onions! Really?!

The waiter says, “well, we don’t sell many martinis”. I don’t believe it.

Buy a jar of cocktail onions for the bar to have so you can better serve people like me.

Overall, a first class restaurant.

I read the reviews about Patina 250 prior to going and most were very good. My husband and I were pleasantly pleased that the food and service far exceeded our expectations. Our server was very knowledgeable, attentive and never missed a beat. Prior to dinner we had baked house made Ricotta then for dinner we had Scottish Salmon as well as a Crab/pasta dish for the entree. Everything was delicious! My husband did order a side of mashed potatoes that were a bit too salty. They were quickly replaced by a side of couscous w/cranberries which were so good!

Came here friday night before a show due to all the amazing things I've heard about this restaurant. We were seated and ordered drinks, about 20 minutes went by another server asked if a server had been over to us yet. We then watched our waitress realize we never had our drinks and go get them... We watched the tables on either side of us whom were seated after we were, get bread and even refills of bread but not us. Those tables were even half way done with their meals by the time we got ours. And having to "wave down" our waitress for the bill was ridiculous. I feel I paid way to much money for Applebee's type service. I expected way better.

The food was great as was the service. The only “complaint,” if you could call it that, was that the music selection didn’t seem to match with the atmosphere in the restaurant.

Unfortunately some dishes were too salty to taste the ingredients themselves.
Loved the atmosphere and good selection of wine, but food was not good.

We were looking forward to this and it was a bit disappointing. We had a Caesar (best I’ve ever had), pierogis (good), baked Brie (cold), white gazpacho (very good) and the duck which was over cooked. Very attentive service. The layout was weird. The room was interesting.

My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch on 9/8/19. We were warmly welcomed by the hostess and had a pleasant table at the back but a bit too close to a somewhat noisy birthday party in the big private room. The food was excellent, we took the brunch special which is good value for money when you consider it includes unlimited champagne or wine. My friend ordered the crab cakes which were the best we have ever had, I had a Cesar salad which was more than enough for two. We both had the eggs Benedict which were delicious, served over home made biscuits with just the right amount of Hollandaise sauce. While the desserts were tempting we were just too full to try them. Our serving person Julie was very attentive, warm and cheerful and made excellent recommendations from the menu. We had a delightful time and will definitely return.
