We tried this spot for our Anniversary. We were lucky and ended up getting a spot st the bar without reservations. We had booked at another restaurant but due to the power outage they were closed. Anyways, happy mistake finding Patois. The food was AMAZING and the service and cocktails were pretty fantastic too!!! We ordered a lot of food, I just wanted to try it all. My fav was the crispy pork belly, jerk chicken, and dirty rice. I can’t wait come back again to try more off the menu.

Worst experience ...

Worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant!!! The Owner and Manager were rude to the 26 guests of our party. They didn't bring us all of the items from their prix fixe menu. They brought one appetizer cut in half for the 11 guests at my table! I understand the concept of "tapas style" dining but a beef patty sandwich cut in half is not sufficient for 11 people at a table. We asked for more and then found out that in addition to the $39.99 we were already paying, we were charged for every plate we asked for. Crazy because it was food that we should've received in the first place. Management did not want to take accountability for their staff mistakes and said maybe it went to another table. Management was angry because we were late and had to "turn away guests" and was adamant on getting their compensation one way or another. Overall the food was "okay" and the customer service was horrible. If you have a large party I WOULD NOT recommend this restaurant. Absolutely terrible experience, they didn't even apologize for their behavior.

I had heard soo much about the restaurant and the dishes, i was happy to finally get the chance to experience Patois for myself. As a foodie traveler and VP for Bocuse d'Or, i am blessed to eat at the table of some of the top chefs around the globe but I can say that Patois did NOT disappoint! The shrimps were insane and the jerk lobster to die for. I will be back!

Fantastic little gem! My wife and I celebrated our 22nd Anniversary there for dinner. Both of us being in the service Industry and our Families owning Restaurant’s we rarely are impressed by quality and service these days. I am happy to say the food was incredible. What a spin on the way all courses tasted. And Winston our server was amazing. And all staff were attentive and knew of our Anniversary and Congratulated us! Now that’s a night out to remember! Thanks to all at Patois. Keep it up 😉

The food here is really delicious and the staff are quite friendly. I love the buzzing vibe this place gives off but its super noisy inside and hard to have a conversation without trying to battle the surrounding noise. Overall, I would definitely come here again!

Very special greeting. We needed a table and we were accommodated rather than bar seating. I had reserved a lobster and it was fabulous as were the dumpling and the chicken. Our server was great but all servers touched the table, whether refilling water, removing plates it was great. The noise level is very very high so not for a romantic evening but the best food you could hope for.

Best Restaurants for unusual & unique features in Toronto

It is impossible to single out one fascinating aspect of Patois, as the whole restaurant is filled with intriguing fixtures and fittings. Take the bar for example – it's made out of reclaimed bowling alley lane. And the legs it stands on? They were used to carry the fake blood used on the set of “Carrie.” The lazy susan on the round table? It’s made with skateboard wheels and even includes a discharged bullet (pictured above).
