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 came here with a group of 4 other friends for my Boyfriends birthday and we can an amazing time! The atmosphere was fun, the drinks were delicious, and the waitstaff were friendly and knowledgable. The highlight was the food! We ordered the whole shebang and we loved absolutely everything! Very creative food, and I will absolutely return.

All was just great. Service was extremely attentive and friendly. Food was delicious and particularly the crab fried rice. Only downside was that we were served so quickly and the food was so good that we were done in about an hour.

We had an AMAZING experience at Patois. The service was excellent and the food exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend the Foie Gras Potstickers and the Pineapple Bun Burger, both were super flavourful!! We also had the Jerk Chicken (which was very juicy and tender), the Pork Belly (which came with lettuce wraps and a very yummy/spicy sauce) and the curry goat doubles (which were delicious). Would definitely come back here again.

The restaurant was small but decorated nicely and had some good music playing. We had the manager and a server (Jolanda) taking care of us all evening. When making the reservation it stated that we could only stay for an hour and 45mins - however at no point in time did anyone make us feel rushed. Our server(s) were quite knowledgeably when it came to the menu and how everything was prepared. The food was PHENOMENAL! We had a little bit of everything and it was well worth it! Highly Recommend!!!

Great atmosphere. Love the music. Food was good. Some dishes better than others. Then again i am from the Caribbean so my tastebuds needed more flavour and spice. Otherwise not too bad. Will go back again for sure.

The majority of the seating is in the back half of the restaurant, past the bar, its a little dark, and a bit cramped feeling but overall bustling and busy sort of feel. The service was great - our server was very friendly and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed, including extra napkins and wet naps, which was super handy with the crab and fried chicken that we ordered! Food was very good, tasty and a fun and accessible blend of Asian and Island flavors, the oxtail with rice and beans was a classic!

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).
