A different and delicious experience. I'd go back in a minute. There are a lot of different dishes I would like to try. The garlic rice is outstanding, but I was surprised to find out it didn't go with the meal. Our impression was that it did, so imagine our surprise to find out we were charged $8 for the... More

Spanish-Filipino dishes are available here. Paella Filipino style is one of my favorites. Good food at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, it may get crowded sometimes so I recommend to make reservations ahead.

On November 7-16, 2014, I visited my friends from San Francisco, San Jose, Pleasanton and San Ramon CA. Of course they all wanted to treat me with the best Filipino food. With that in mind, surprisingly, Patio Filipino Restaurant came out as the common denominator. So I ended up visiting Patio 2 times. Sizzling Bangus Sisig and Crispy Binago ongan... More

I visited my sisters in the bay area and decided to try this Filipino restaurant. My sister said this is the best one in that area and I wanted to try and evaluate for myself. Though the food was tasty but was salty & greasy. We had the following: Chicken & mussels tinola; lumpianitas; pancit combo; sizzling bangus sisig; pork... More

We ate here on a Monday evening @ 5:45. I had read reviews that the restaurant was pet friendly and that the food was good. When we first arrived, we asked for patio seating, and were informed that there was only 1 waiter, and they were not serving on the patio. When I told them I had my 2 dogs... More

A great selection of authentic Philippine dishes in a pleasant setting. Big dishes for the family to share, reasonably priced. A long menu with many traditional items. Our noodle/vegetable soup and chicken/tomato stew were very good.

Saw a review on Bay Area Check Please, we were in the area and decided to try Patio Filipino for lunch. We've never had Filipino food before and asked our Server to recommend something. We started with fried spring rolls (very good with the vinegar sauce), followed by a fried fish with lemongrass sauce, which was really good, a side... More

Looking for something a little different for dinner we decided to try Patio Filipino and weren't disappointed. This is a restaurant where 99% of the patrons are Filipino…a good sign if you're looking for authentic cuisine. Most tables were filled w/ large families and we had to wait a few minutes until a small table opened. Our waiter was patient... More

I love a little epecurean variety. While looking for a dinner spot i drove past this little gem and said why not. What a fun experience. I was the only white guy in the restaurant. Lots of Filipino families eating in large numbers. Moms, Dads, with their parents and children. Large plates of food on big tables. When I walked... More

We had never tried a Filipino restaurant, so decided to have dinner there. We had Filipino food before thanks to our friends and so we knew what we wanted to eat. The serving sizes were huge and prices reasonable. The servers were smiling and helpful. The Owner was there talking with clients and that helps. I recommend this place any... More
