Patina Restaurant and Bar - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Entrees had great favor and good selection. We had first course of caprice salad which was not exceptional however brussel sprouts were wonderful. Our entrees were lamb, shrimp and grits, and trout, all wonderful. Not impressed with our dessert choices. They were out of our first choice of wine and dessert. Issue with bill dealing with wine charge. Waiter recommended wine and said it cost less than what we wanted but when bill came charge was more than menu price. Took 3 tries to get it right. Would have been nice if manager had spoken to us. Could have better customer service.
The watermelon mojito was one of the best drinks that I have ever had - so light and refreshing! All of the food we ate was delicious! But, the value was poor. My seared duck breast entree was $26 and all I received was 2 small medallions. Where was the rest of the meal??
Had not been there in a long time. Excellent attention and service. Asked for a large booth and was greeted with a positive reply to my request. Steak too rare but owner brought out a completely new steak that was perfect.
Loved our time there. Definitely recommend.
It was really quiet- missing a "vibe" on a Saturday night. They were having trouble with the music and when they got it working it was rock n roll. I was thinking more jazz music. The food was fabulous and our service was great. Interesting the waitresses were wearing gym shoes - seemed like with the prices it would be a little more upscale.
Wow.! We had never heard of this restaurant before but tried it due to an Open Table gift card. We sat outside on the well appointed porch because the weather was very nice. It was happy hour and so we ordered drinks were were nicely priced. We had the flatbread appetizer which very tasty and just the right size if you are ordering dinner. My wife had the osso bucco and shared some with me. We both agreed that it was excellent. I had the rockfish which was also excellent. The service was very good and so Iwould that that the all around experience is just what you hope for when dining out.
Excellent food and presentation. Wide food selection and bar selections. The bar even went out of its way to make an uncommon (in Us) mixed drink for us. Will recommend to friends and family. Definitely will frequent Patini. Service was a little slow which is the reason for only a 4 rating.
If it were not for the amateur service this place might be okay. The wait staff seems unexperienced or perhaps just untrained on how to open a bottle of wine. Slow service, and not much of it. The lack of professionalism made us decide to try somewhere else. The charcuterie & cheese was very nicely presented. The wine selection is lacking. Maybe I will try again, but there are better restaurants in the area if you ask me.
The food was great. The people were very nice. My only complaint was how the bill was handled when their system went down. We had to wait an extra 40 minutes to pay due to their system issues. This was a bit frustrating. I will not let it deter me from going back as I really enjoyed the food/ambiance. I guess they should come up with a back-up plan for system issues.
My husband and I went to Patina for our anniversary. We had not been in years, and had heard that it had changed ownership. We had a fantastic meal, perfect service -just lovely. And, for those of us in the West End, it is so convenient. The quality of a fancy Fan restaurant with much better parking!
Local neighborhood gem! Intimate bar area with really good bartenders. Decent wine list with solid pairings. Very knowledgeable wait staff and everyone is friendly. This was Valentine's Day and dinner was very slow to come out. That said, nearly every table was full and they were working hard to keep up! I'd go back!
The new owners make customers feel special! We went on Valentine's and each female guest received a rose upon arrival. The food was very flavorful. The menu is diverse allowing something for everyone. Good wine and mixed drink selection. We sat in the booth, so our dinner was intimate. Nice to support a local restaurant and not a chain.
We visited Patina after hearing that they were under new ownership. I made the reservation and was almost embarrassed to say I had a reservation when we walked in because there were no other diners in the restaurant, even though it was 6:30 pm. on a Wednesday. We started with the fried oyster appetizer which was not amazing, but good. The siracha aoili made the dish. My companion's rockfish was accompanied by a smoked polenta that was tasty and moist and a perfectly steamed bok choy. The fish was seasoned well, but slightly overdone. My ribeye was perfection. Huge cut of meat perfectly cooked to medium rare. The seasoning on the crust was salty but not overwhelming. The bone marrow compound butter on top was rich and smooth and complemented the salty beef perfectly. I hope that more people give it a try and keep them in business.
Our first visit since ownership changed (which honestly, we didn't know until we got there). The family that bought the place seems to have really amped up the service and the menu. The pork osso bucco was tender, fall off the bone goodness. Our friend had the shrimp and grits which he commented was like being in the SC low country. We'll definitely be back and like the idea of supporting a local family.
First the negatives, wine prices were on the expensive side. Only 3 fried oysters on appetizer plate was not a value, but were tasty. Now the positives, service was good and owner visited table to make sure we were happy. The Osso Bucco was very tender and tasty. My dining partners had the rockfish and the short ribs and were both satisfied with their choices. Minimal dessert choices.
We enjoyed our meal, but found the service to be lacking. We were sitting at our table for an hour, having already finished our appetizer, when our waiter finally came to take our dinner order. Water glasses were not refilled until we asked (again - an hour after we sat down at the table). We just generally felt unattended to during our meal. Overall, food was very good, but the service was far from stellar.
