An absolutely exquisite lamb shanks! This was a wonderful restaurant to have a New Year’s dinner together with friends. Patio Delray is consistently wonderful. It feels like I am dining in my private backyard with a five star chef and staff making a private event special even for just any dinner. A winner!

We went New Years Eve. There was a special menu. We had the seafood paella and it was very salty and seafood was over cooked. It was very expensive for ok food

I would say that the Patio is one of the best restaurants in Delray Beach! The cuisine is superb, the fish absolutely fresh, the flavors and seasoning are perfection. (Living in France part of the year, we have fairly high standards) The service is perfect- professional, courteous and friendly ( but not overly). Outdoor dining surrounded by tropical plants is calming and atmospheric. Parking easy and free. I will recommend the Patio to all.

Beautiful outdoor setting on the patio! Spotless table and place settings. Plants, lamps, music and fish made for a magical setting for our 51st anniversary. Menus is somewhat limited due to virus, however, much to chose and enjoy! Service was excellent, food very well presented, everything as described on the menus and most importantly served at the proper temperatures! Sea Bass was delicious as well as the Crab Cake! Grilled artichokes were to “die” for...had never had anything as tasty and well presented!
Dessert - fudge brownie was delicious and beautiful!
Not an inexpensive dinner but well worth the “fare”.
We hope the community and visitors to the area rise to the occasion and support this establishment!

This place is great! My husband and I went back in July when things were really quiet. They still had a full menu and everything was great! We took my daughter and her fiancé who are in town for the holidays this week. We wanted something special with great food and service but not crowded, with an outside seating option. We got just that! Everything is made to order with a creative flare. The sea bass is really amazing over a cauliflower fried rice, you would never know it was cauliflower. Not a huge menu but all options are perfected! The owner Lilly and her husband do a fabulous job! Its our new favorite special occasion place to go! A true hidden gem.

It had been way too long since we last visited The Patio and I can tell you for sure, we will not wait that long again. This restaurant is thankfully not on the Avenue so parking is easy, and there are no crowds or loud traffic to deal with. Our wonderful evening started when we were greeted by owner, Lily, and asked if we wanted indoor or outdoor seating. We chose the outdoor patio which is very large and extremely roomy. The cocktails were excellent, our dinners were outstanding, and who could resist Lily's bread pudding. Great service topped it off and we can't wait to go back!

Patio Delray has always been our favorite restaurant in Florida. A recent visit was especially memorable. The rustic Caesar Salad and Chicken Pasta Alfredo were excellent as usual, with the Chilean Sea Bass quickly impressing us as a delicious dish that we’re positive to revisit. Thanks to Miss Lily and Phil for creating a fantastic outdoor dining occasion once again for us.

This was our second time at Patio Delray and it was as good as the first time. We tried the Tuna and avocado appetizer with shrimp chips. Tuna and avocado were nicely diced and seasoned perfectly and went well with the crispy shrimp chips. For dinner we had the Sea Bass with cauliflower fried rice and the Pan Seared Tuna with a curry spice rub and Forbidden Black Rice. I ordered a side of the Forbidden Black rice because it went well with my Sea Bass. The Sea Bass had a nice crisp skin and moist on the inside. The wine list is very affordable and we went with the Cake Chardonnay. Rene our server was attentive and prompt with the pours. It was my birthday and we got a chocolate brownie with ice cream and Ms. Lily sent over a double chocolate gelato and a 1/2 of champagne. Nice touch, they always make us feel like family. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio even though it was hot night, the fans kept us comfortable. Tables are far apart and our waitress wore a mask so we felt safe. I love the restaurant location because it's far from the bustle of Atlantic Avenue and best of all, stress-free and free parking. I highly recommend this place for a relaxing night out.

It was one of the first times my husband and I have dined our since March and the onset of Covid19 and we could not have been happier. Food is incredible, the Tuna out of this world and the Creme Brûlée amazing. We can’t wait to go back and would highly recommend for anyone wanting an exceptional dining experience.

First visit in a while--superb! Lily did the cooking herself, and Phil was her wait-staff in training. It was a warm summer night, but with all the fans, we were very comfortable. Lily was charming as always, the food was flavorful and made to perfection. We will be back soon!

As has been my experience each time I have been to Patio Delray, the food was excellent, the service outstanding and the atmosphere calming. The crab cake entree is always a favorite but the sea bass is also delicious. If you are within driving distance of Delray Beach, Patio Delray should be at the top of your dinner reservation list!

I was really happy with social distancing of tables and the staff wore masks. So I felt pretty safe. I really enjoyed the food. We started with the grilled artichoke and dumplings in Sichuan oil which were delicious. We also had the sea bass with fried riced cauliflower which was superb and the seared Ahi tuna steak served with a curry sauce and their forbidden black rice. I would definitely go back for the forbidden rice. We finished off with a cheesecake served in a jar which was also quite good. I plan on going back to try there other dishes and maybe have the sea bass again. We came early to avoid the crowds and sat outside. It was still pretty warm around 6:30 but with the fans going it was very comfortable outside. I liked the ample parking.

Excellent attention to detail, exceptionally fresh food, attentive owner and service staff. We started with a complementary appetizer and were offered additional tomato compote by our observant server. The sea bass is fantastic, well flavored and cooked to perfection. The tuna and salmon were equally wonderful-bright flavors, different sides, beautifully presented. When it looked as if it might rain, we were informed our table would be moved promptly. The owner stopped by twice to check on our satisfaction. I really like this spot as is out of the noise and congestion of Atlantic Ave. All staff wore masks & there is abundant hand sanitizer. Highly recommended.

We had a very good meal. My wife is a vegetarian and they were able to offer up a tasty vegetarian dish that was not on the menu. I had the Tuna entree and it was very good. I highly recommend. My only complaint is that the interior of the restaurant is fairly dated and could use freshening up. Service was very good.
