    Excellent service and food. We ended up being a group of 12 people and the servers handled the group very well. Will come back again!

    Delicious food, fun atmosphere. I had Queso Fundido, which was fantastic - super gooey cheese with a good flavour. A friend order a side of guacamole and we decided to get a large for the table - it was a great size & delicious. My husband had the sautéed prawn tacos - lovely flavour. I will definitely be back.

    This service sucked because it took my reservation, confirmed it and then when we arrived at the restaurant, we saw that it was closed for Thanksgiving. It is their prerogative to close on a holiday, but they should ensure that online bookings cannot be confirmed for the same day. Thank you.

    We all enjoyed our lunch (3 diners) and the service was prompt and attentive. One of our party is allergic to cilantro and our waitress was very helpful and accommodated that person's requirements without fuss.

    The evening was fantastic. The service and food were all amazing. In fact, most of the people we brought to the restaurant, to help us celebrate, had never been there before but will return as they were so impressed. Our only disappointment was that the music, although absolutely outstanding, was too loud for us to be able to visit without yelling into each others ears.

    I really like this place and often take clients and friends before sporting events. Food is exceptional, well priced and the staff about as friendly as you can get these days. Please don not tell anyone about it ( just kidding). I will continue to go back.

    My husband and I were excited to try this Mexican place close to our neighbourhood. We arrived and they didn't have a record of our reservation but they found a table for us quickly. Not having the reservation should've been the first hint that things wouldn't go well. The hostess quickly brought over some chips and salsa and we placed a drink order. We then didn't have any server come by until we asked maybe 10 minutes later who our server was and what was happening with our drinks. The server came by and took our food order and said he would check on our drinks. About 5 minutes later we asked about our drinks again (after having someone track down our server). He came back to the table and said he's been trying to figure out what drinks we ordered (even though I had already told him the first time I checked on the status). Anyway, after waiting about another 5 minutes and still no drinks, we decided to leave because we didn't things improving and were hungry and tired of waiting for no service. We also heard the couple at the table next to us complaining and asking multiple servers about their drinks, too. Can't comment on the food because we left before getting to try anything!

    Great service provided. The server provided a perfect amount of conversation and was quick with our order. We were on lunch break so the timing was appreciated. The food was pretty good, would try something else the next time as my item wasn't outstanding.

    The service was excellent and it's great to have a place to watch Liga MX in Vancouver. The food is very good, although I have never had enchiladas verdes filled with tinga de pollo or whatever the chicken in red salsa was. I much preferred the enchiladas suizas I had last time I was in. In any event, great place and great people.

    This was my first time going to El Patron but I had heard good things from others. I loved this place. The decor was very nice. My food was delicious. My drink reminded me of the the drinks I've had on the beaches of Mexico. I'm planning to go back again soon.

    What goes better with tacos other than beer? Okay, maybe tequila, but down at Patron Tacos, they’ve got you covered on both fronts. Along with a well-rounded selection of premium tequilas, they also carry a range of beers for all palettes. While they do have a couple local beers, they have a nice array of Mexican favourites from which to choose, all available by the bottle.

    Enjoy sangria season at these Vancouver restaurants and bars

    Enjoy sangria season at these Vancouver restaurants and bars

    You can expect the unexpected when it comes to sangria at Patron. According to the menu, the unpredictable house-made punch is created “on the fly” using the freshest locally sourced ingredients. Available in both red and white varieties ($7.50 for a glass or $27.50 for a pitcher), local wines are mixed with Southern Comfort peach liquor and in-season fruit to create an intoxicating summertime beverage that’s great for sharing. The atmosphere here is energetic and boisterous with mariachi music on the speakers and sports games on the TVs. Best to visit with a large group rather than on a date.
