Food is always excellent. The owner is always there making sure things run well. It is sometimes a little loud when it is super busy, but a great vibe nonetheless. It is a favorite amongst many friends and family.

I had the Seafood Salad and the Angry Lobster - so fresh tasting and absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the lamb chops and they were tender and scrumptious. We have never been disappointed with any of their selections. My family and friends feel the same way. Always totally satisfied. Would highly recommend Patricia's!

Menu and food were very good. Quite pricey for location and style. $20 for an app (though good) is excessive. Being a BYO was a nice touch.

We have been to Patricia's on many occasions and food is consistently great! Service the past two visits has been lacking unfortunately. The last time we went was a birthday celebration in September with 5 in our party. We asked for regular water 3 times only to have the bus boy fill the glasses 1/4-1/2 way. Then, after silverware was taken after appetizer and entree brought out, my daughter asked for new silverware waiting and waiting as her food got cold and ours too as we didn't want to start without her. After flagging him down, we got the silverware. We just chalked it off to a busy night.

This past week, two of us returned for a 5:15 reservation and we're promptly seated. My daughter recognized our bus boy (not the same as before) as a friend and he quickly brought water and bread. Then, we waited...and waited. Two tables immediately next to us and seated AFTER us were quickly addressed by their male waiter, in addition to the bus boy. For us, 14 minutes passed with no wait staff in sight. A very observant waitress spotted us looking around and came to ask if the order had been taken by our waiter and I responded no and that I didn't know who he was. She said she knew who has our table but couldn't locate him so she took our order and tended to us the remainder of our visit...great service from her! Very attentive!

We will return, but it's the small attention to service details that can make or break a dining experience.

The food and service are sensational and that's the only reason I can go once in a great while. I wish I could go more but it is too expensive for me, and now that they are expanding I'm afraid they're going to raise their prices making it less likely that I would be able to dine there again. The fact that most people can afford it will keep it going on to being the best restaurant in town!

Dinner on a Sunday night, restaurant was crowded at 7 pm and the room gets noisy. Food was excellent, service good, only critiques are the ambiance which is lacking (they should really do something more with their windows - having a store sign glaring in while you're dining is not cool. We have dined at many excellent strip mall restaurants where you forget where you are once you enter. Not here!) and the steep prices. $68 for 2 pasta entrees, tax and tip.

Very convenient. Been going there for about 4 years. Never again
Noisy. Food very bad
Zucchini blossoms like fried dough balls covering globs of ricotta .Blossoms very meager.Entire dish overpriced at $18 and tasteless
Chopped salad no seasoning whatsoever. Totally bland bowl of chopped lettuce with tomatoes,etc Awful
Chicken scarpiello barely cooked. Sausage bland. Potates and peppers okay
Waitress fine. At least 8-10 teenage boys as servers,water,butter deliverers totally clueless
Really shockedthat this place has clearly deteriorated over the past year
We will not be back and will deter anyone who asks from going there

From start to finish we had a wonderful meal. Our server Chelsea was excellent. For appetizers we had the fig,goat cheese & arugula pizza drizzled with a balsamic reduction... Excellent... We also wanted to split a pasta dish, Rigatoni shrimp & spinach in a spicy sauce.. Chelsea suggested it as a separate course so as not to crowd the table.. Our entree’s were Shrimp scampifor my wife & I had the Veal Chop.. The shrimp were large & cooked perfectly.. My Veal chop was top shelf, as tender as butter, cooked just as I had asked, medium rare, it was in a spicy pepper sauce with grilled Brussels sprouts.., I might as for spinach as a substitute next time.. I’m not a Sprouts fan..😊
Overall it was an Excellent experience , Lenny the Executive Chef is one of the best Chefs in the area..

I dine at Patricia's several times each month. It's my go-to favorite place and I have introduced this restaurant to countless people and they have all been very happy. I have catered from here as well as hosted several large parties at the restaurant. Everything I have eaten there is top notch and I walk away very satisfied with the exception of their pasta carbonara. I've ordered it twice when it's been on the specials menu and I have been disappointed both times. The first time it was very dry and the second time it was dry and tasteless. I won't order it again. I can't expect a restaurant to be flawless every time but twice with the same dish is one I won't reorder again as I can make it better at home. I will however return to Patricia's without hesitation and will always highly recommend it!
