Add pet friendly to the list...that brought us there the first time and continues to be our motivator!
Thank you for being so good to Grizzly and us!

Very fun group happy hour/dinner. Our waitress was laid back and had great food recommendations. Highly recommend the beef and blue flatbread. Space was cute and could be good for a larger party or a date night. Much bigger space than the location in Mission Hills, but similar vibe and decor.

We made reservations on Open Table and were seated late so the manager, Chris, came and waited on our table and made sure we were able to leave on time for a prior obligation. It was a party of five and the manager made sure to make it fun and entertain us. Their customer service is far above what would be expected for a nice restaurant. The atmosphere is great and I would recommend it to anyone based on our experience.

I have eaten at The Patio on Lamont many times. This past brunch on New Year's Day was the best food I've ever had. My group of fiends loved the posole! It was so good that I asked for an order to go to take home to my husband. I hope the chef makes it a regular item on the menu.

Had been here once before and were excited to return. That excitement faded quickly - we were seated in the back corner of the restaurant, and no one came to our table for at least 10 minutes. We were eventually given waters by a bus boy and our waitress finally came about 5 min later. All in all the food was okay, not good enough to warrant the high prices - and it took an hour and fifteen minutes to get it! We sat at 7:15, and got our food at 8:40. Will not be returning.

We were seated without a wait upon arrival, the staff were all very attentive (our orders were taken and food was served by a few different servers to - I assume - get us our food as quickly as possible), and the food was very good. Ordered and would recommend the fried chicken sandwich, which was well-seasoned, had the perfect amount of crispy bite/crunch without being too heavy, and was plenty filling for one person. The parmesan truffle fries were good but nothing spectacular - would've been nice if they were a little crunchier upon arrival, but still fairly satiafying. Great ambience for brunch, and super dog friendly. It's a great place to bring a dog if you have one, or just to look at others' cute foods over food.

Service was poor and slow. Food mediocre, so many flies that we could not enjoy our lunch because of swatting at all the flies. The noise level was extreme. I had heard such good things about the patio and really like the one in Mission Hills. Therefore this was a disappointment.

I love the ambiance here and the food is usually on point but my Cesar salad was very small and my chicken dish was over salted. My friend got the salmon and also felt that his dish was over salted. I do have to say that I love the atmosphere and that the patio is dog friendly but unfortunately my dinner was not as satisfying.
