So we came for Brunch, but I felt like this might be better for Happy Hour based on what the menu offered. Food was good, and Service was good too but personally I still like sitting at a proper dinner table. If I came for Happy Hour - the coffee table couch settings might be fun, then noticed folks on patio had different parties sharing each side of table while I might of found uncomfortable myself. Brunch menu was not very brunch oriented, but would come back? Yes, for Happy Hour.

Our server, Oscar, was super nice and accommodating! The food was good and the mimosas were strong lol. At one point it got a little chilly and another server came by to turn on the overhead heater- so thoughtful!

We really enjoyed the outdoor seating on the back patio. Great ambiance, but would love for the heaters to be a little more powerful, it was a windy evening. Otherwise, the wine and small bites were fantastic and we loved our girls night at The Patio.

We had a wonderful evening meal there. The service was spot-on, and the food was excellent. This is not a formal place, but a place that serves "up scale, gourmet, bar food".
We had a delicious cheeseburger with homemade fries. Also had a beautifully prepared salad, and a wonderful appetizer of ceviche.
My first restaurant meal in SF since the pandemic started did not disappoint. I felt safe, as everyone on the staff, and everyone who entered was wearing a mask.

Super cute patio area in the back (I guess that explains the name). We had a group of 5, came about 10 minutes late to the reservation and they were nice about it. Good service. I didn't have any drinks myself but the roasted veggies were tasty, just needed a bit more salt. Great ambience for a girls night or date. Out waitress was nice enough to split the bill up for us. Would definitely come back here.

Not quite what I was expecting, we had reservations, but our table was a coffee table so we put our plates in our laps some of the time. Limited menu, understood because of COVID. I had the butternut squash soup and the roasted vegetables, which were both delicious. My friend had the Mac and cheese, not too exciting. Pricey for a non-dinner.
Service was good, but we were forgotten towards the end.

Lovely patio with warm fire pit to sit by. Excellent happy hour. We made a meal out of it. My husband ordered a second glass of wine after happy hour was over, but they still gave him the happy hour price. Very good avocado toast with generous portion. French fries for garlic lovers.

I was impressed by The Patio, 3 folds.

1) The wine selection: you will find good wines there. They know their stuff and you can see the selection is carefully picked. You will not find a classic selection that is definitely refreshing. That could be seen as a con by some as they may not know what to order, in that case: ask the staff. Our waiter knew his wine menu and was able to suggest the right ones. He even made me discover I could enjoy California Chardonnay as he suggested a non-oak-aged wine. Thank you for educating your customers :-)

2) The place: we were in the back of the restaurant, it's a cozy patio, we were in the covered part, with heater and lights. Nice atmosphere, the fences protect from the wind and avoid any unwanted Karl the Fog surprise.

3) The food: it's mostly snacks, everything was good but I must it was not as good as 1) and 2). I enjoyed my meal, but it was not "woaw this is delicious". There is room for improvement here.

I enjoyed my time, will come back and would recommend The Patio to a friend.

The Patio is wonderful. The wine and food are both top notch, and their outdoor space is magical: trees, bird feeders and very elegant lighting. And they remembered us from a visit months ago! That kind of attention to detail is rare in SF, and it makes this a special gem.

Outstanding seasonal (late dec - early spring) local pacific cod, which melted like butter, and delightful butternut squash soup of just the right texture and temperature. Humble, extremely courteous service and attendants. A delight to patronise.

Outdoor ambience well structured, with wooden platforms, and sufficient noise isolation from the road.

It was Valentine’s Day and I had made a reservation. It was slightly raining and we didn’t have a covered seat. They could have warned us that we didn’t have a covered spot, especially since they called us the night before to make us confirm. The food was delicious and our waiter was very nice.

Hello, we apologize that your seat was not covered. We try our best to accommodate everyone due to how limited seating is because of the pandemic and the unpredictable weather forecast is not always on our side. We would love to have another opportunity to serve you now that we are allowed to have indoor seating at a limited capacity! Just contact any of The Patio team members and we will personally take care of you. Cheers!
