Went there for brunch while visiting in Toronto. Such a delicious menu and servers are very knowledgeable! Can't recommend enough their version of eggs Benedict with asparagus and manchengo foam. Can't wait to go back someday!!

I was choosing restaurant for a special occasion-my birthday and Patria was an actual win-good value, great food and amazing interior (per pictures and review read). It was my first time here, I've reserved a table for 2 via opentable, it was an option for special occasion and requested seating (couch set, near those majestic portraits). When I've showed up at Patria for my reservation, it was pretty empty, but the hostess showed me our tiny table near the kitchen and when I mentioned it's my birthday and I would like a nice table,she replied that she has full reservation for today's evening and I can not be seated where I wanted. Anyway, I've got what I wanted but had this taste of "unprofessionalism"-not sure if I'll come back, but the food was good (tapas plates), our waiter was nice and did a brief explanation for the menu selection

This was a really disappointing dining experience. I brought colleagues from California here wanting to impress them. The disappointment started with the water - when a silverfish was in the water. The bartender was horrified but didn't really do anything about it other than replace the water. The food was good but not great and the service was spotty and not consistent. At one point a server came to our table and offered to serve the Paella to us and left before she even started. She never came back. And for 4 people where 2 of the people weren't drinking the meal came to over $450. I won't be going back or recommending the restaurant.

Great tapas, typical of what you would enjoy in Spain. It was pricey so I only go on special occasions. Would enjoy more meat On the plater when ordering the special Jamon (ham) some plates were somewhat lacking quantity but certainly not quality. John

What a gem! I must come back to try more dishes. The food, though in smaller portions than expected, was delicious. Loved the butter lettuce salad and shrimp dish. Great location. One small suggestion would be to place a sign off king to dorect customers. Will come back again!

Absolutely delicious food and great atmosphere. Service was fantastic, we never had to wait more than a few minutes for anything we needed. The cocktails, while pricey, were fabulous. The food was phenomenal. Overall, with higher-than-average prices and higher-than-average quality, this restaurant is great for special occasions or the occasional, top-notch night out.

I arrived and the lady put me aside and served 2 other tables of similar size that arrived after me. Then they said the tables are all full, and asked me to wait a few minutes. The wait was a total of 30 minutes which is ridiculous considering I shouldn't even have had to wait, and all they gave me was a glass of champagne that I didn't even want. Instead they should have thrown in free appetizers or something better than a glass of champagne. This hasn't happened to me before but the way they dealt with the problem was not acceptable for such a high end restaurant. Food and our server were good as always though.
