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.

Our server recommended two dishes: the crispy Brussels sprout salad and the pork belly yakisoba, and both were fantastic. We also got the fried chicken, which was the best fried chicken either of us had ever had. Tasty food, laid-back atmosphere and great service. We will be back!

We’ve been looking forward to trying Patois since pre COVID and it did not disappoint. Great atmosphere. Great food and super friendly staff. We ordered the whole shebang and loved it. Took our lovely servers advice and did not order anything else to accompany it - thanks goodness! There were mountains of food. Cocktails were excellent too- not the disappointing, low alcohol content stuff you get in some places. Will definitely be back.

The Mac Pie tasted like my mom's back in Trinidad. Made me a bit emotional. It was a fantastic meal. We really enjoyed the cocktails and the taste of the Caribbean. Service was great. Definitely adding Patios to my favs list.

Knockout food with great service. Laid back (yet helpful, fast, and friendly) servers are a nice contrast to the snootiness you can get in other restaurants that are this good!

Everything was brilliant! They were awesome about allergies and made great cocktail recommendations, plus a hot tip about some menu hacks and side orders. Felt safe with their pandemic protocols and the patio was super cute considering they had no choice but to set up on the street/sidewalk. Will def be back!

Second time coming after a few years hiatus—will be coming back again much sooner hopefully. Our server was attentive and helpful, the food was amazing, portion sizes were generous, atmosphere was good but much different than it was a few years back (I’m assuming due to COVID restrictions and the like). I’ll highly recommend it to anyone.

If you’re looking for something a little more novel this Chinese New Year, head to Patois for Chef Craig Wong’s Jamaican Chinese food. This Dundas West hotspot offers enticing selections. Choose from a regular menu of Chinese “Pineapple” Bun Burger, Kimchi Potstickers “Pierogi” Style and Dirty Fried Rice, and dinner features that have included Prosperity Jerk Lobster, Jerk Chicken Chow Mein, and Jamaican Oxtail Ramen Lomein. Chinese New Year just got a modern rewrite, with a Jamaican twist.

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).
