Food is always good but it never feels good to be ignored. We had to call someone over after waiting a long time after sitting down. Then after we finished no one came back. There was plenty of staff and mostly empty tables. They should not seat people if they don’t want to serve them.

I do not think this place should be dined at or recommended. We ordered the lobster arancici and my husband took a bite into a rice ball that was black in the middle. When we questioned the waiter, he consulted a few individuals who confirmed it was accidentally cooked with blue cheese but looking at the menu, there was nothing that obviously had blue cheese in it (and please remember that the issue was a black center). We don’t believe this place follows health code and don’t think anything about the place is worth visiting

We had friends in town for Labor day weekend. After thinking about what important; Views, service, food, fun, We decided ALL these could be covered at one restaurant; PATIO. The amazing host staff are so welcoming and friendly. I made a reservation on OPEN TABLE. Not only were they ready for us, the table we sat at was AMAZING, but all the tables are good. The server Alex appeared quickly. A very polished, friendly, and well trained server. His service added to the most AMAZING lunch. If you like local fresh shellfish, with almost everything, get the Monument. Tuna tartar was one of the best I've ever had. Their wine list is complete; Something from every style. The lunch menu isn't huge but ample. If you know and love well prepared food, you will be very happy. The Grilled cheese and lobster is the best sandwich in Provincetown; Loaded with lobster. A wonderful simple salad topped with Blacked Salmon; Fresh and AMAZING! I'll remind you, The service from Alex was AMAZING. Patio is a modern take on a Real French Bistro. Dress to impress if you can. Best lunch in Provincetown. I'm a Local. Thank you for making our lunch with friends so special.

Very fun night in a colorful, rocking, loud and quite crowded space. There wasn’t much room to move. Tables were on top of one another in the outside area. But the food was great and the atmosphere a party. Loved bringing my dog.

Met some friends for lunch and we were not disappointed. Food was excellent (the special lobster tacos were delicious), the server was great...attentive but not intrusive. Despite a busy time we didn’t feel rushed!

The Patio is a great spot to enjoy a delicious meal and people watch at the same time. The service was exceptional and they even had a blanket waiting for me just in case I was chilly.
I definitely will be back the next time We are in Provincetown.

Great outdoor dining right on commercial Street. We arrive for a reservation and we’re seated immediately. Outside dining area is quite nice. We got the lobster tacos and cod tacos both of which were excellent.

Value is not great in the slightest. Menu prices were far too high for the quality you received. The food was good, but not good enough for the price tag that accompanies it. Drinks were also so so. There were numerous places down the street that serve just a good of drinks for almost half the price.

Overall seems they’re prices themselves where they shouldn’t.

Delicious cocktails (try the mojitos!) And delicious food, you can't go wrong with what you order. Love the outdoor covered seating. Only complaint is the tables were a little sticky, so they didn't do the best job wiping down after the previous customers. This is always a stop when visiting PTown!

We very much enjoyed our recent visit to Patio. Angela was our server and she was fantastic. We all enjoyed our cocktails and the caesar salad as well as the steaks. The wine list is extensive and a good value. The restaurant seemed very clean and the vibe was festive. We definitely will be back.

Had dinner here last Saturday night on a visit to Provincetown and loved every bit of it. Swept in early at 5pm because we had plans to see a show after so just in for a quick meal, but our server made a real impression. I served for years and years and am very aware of how things should be, and even more aware when they're how they shouldn't be - I rarely have anyone impress me or offend me enough to write in, so when I do I really mean it. Brianna (90% sure that's her name, had to call back and get the name from the host because we misplaced our receipt) was fantastic. We dumped our entire order on her pretty quickly and she paced it and checked in like a pro. I know what it means to turn and burn, and how it feels when it's happening to you, and that was in no way the case here. We took our time, she had an eye on us the whole meal but kept great distance when it was appropriate, and was just an absolute love. Great food, great service, lovely table by a fan - bless you to the host that made this happen (tall/thin, handsome young man) -and very solid music in the background. Y'all are great, thanks B, and see you next year!
