Though menu is limited the upside is that everything is very fresh. The tuna is always spectacular. It is patio dining, so comfort level is high in terms of Covid considerations.

We have eaten here before, the food is always top notch. i was a little surprised this time with the friendliness of service. I truly thought it was just not attentive enough. It wasn’t crowded. It felt like the service staff was having a bad day. They weren’t friendly, didn’t check on often enough and they seemed stressed. I don’t mind paying the prices for the food, as long as the service matches it. This evening it did not. I usually don’t like to submit a negative review, but hopefully if someone reads this, they can identify the problem and correct it.

They had a 5 item Valentine menu, it w as warm inside dining room, i was waited on by the hostess also?

Patio Delray
Responded on February 17, 2021

You should have reviewed the menu on Opentable before making your reservation where the Valentines weekend menu was CLEARLY POSTED. If you found it warm in the dining room why didn't you mention it and we would have gladly adjust the temperature for you instead of complaining about it on line later ? Did your server/ hostess provide poor service ?

I would have given higher review except that when we arrived, we found there was only a limited menu available. We would not have picked this restaurant had we known that. And we were not told!!! Also had a 7-year old with us and they wouldn't even cook her pasta.
The service was below average as well. My cocktail glass remained on the table the entire night! (We ordered wine with dinner)
As I said, had we known there was a limited menu, we would have chose differently. It was not a holiday either!

Patio Delray
Responded on February 17, 2021

No you were not "TOLD" it was a limited menus when you reserved ON LINE where the Valentine ADULTS ONLY menu is clearly POSTED on Opentable. Valentines day may not be a national holiday, however President day the next day does make it a holiday weekend.

The food here is fantastic albeit pricey. The shrimp Alfredo was sublime as it wasn't overly creamy and the grilled shrimp was absolutely perfect. We sat outside by the kitchen pond and that was a nice feature! Our server was professional, attentive and knowledgeable!!

Special outside dining evening as always at the Patio. Open Table reservation. Nice welcome, prompt seating in choice of our favorite table next to the fountain outside. Very personal server and owner Lily attention to all our desires. Food nicely prepared and served as always. Start with tasty flat bread and BR Cohn cab. Shared fresh iceburg wedge and rare tuna tartar as starters. Perfectly prepared Chilian Sea Bass and rare Blu Fin tuna entrees. Special birthday gift presented personally by owner Lily.
Will return for more. Thanks

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!

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!
