The Patio is on the street on a busy, high energy block of Commercial Street, with lots of open air seating. The menu is not bad, and some of the food is decent, but this is not a place that takes pride in details. For example, the stainless cutlery is that ultra-thin stuff that bends when you use it.

We were pleasantly surprised when we were told our dog would be welcomed under our table. We were tired from a day of activities and wanted a quick bite before heading out. We were impressed with the quality of the food At what we thought would be just another popular al fresco tourist haven during Carnival week. I had the... More

We had a terrific lunch here on a rainy day. They have huge umbrellas covering the patio which made it possible to sit outdoors, even with a moderately heavy rain though no wind. We had a lobster toll and crab cake BLT and both were excellent along with attentive service. I would definitely go back for lunch and consider dinner.

Enjoyed a delicious lobster pasta dish in a great outdoor atmosphere. As it cooled off in the evening we were handed a blanket for our legs!! This place was busy all day long and it located right in the heart of Commercial Street. Nice variety on menu of traditional American cuisine with hints of European flare. Salad was the lightest...

Dining outside was nice. Food was good. They were busy and the service could have been better. Great place to people watch on the street.

We went here because it was a the least busy restaurant in the area; we didn't have to wait to get a table when every other restaurant had a 30 minute wait. We agreed this probably was a bad sign but hunger prevailed. Our Russian server seemed to just nod her head and agree to all of our questions, not... More

Right on Commercial in the heart of Provinceton, the patio of the Patio is a great place to people watch. But it goes downhill a bit from there. Service is nice, well-meaning but weak. The people at the next table had their entrees arrive before their appetizers. We had major delays between the arrival of our two appetizers though not... More

Varied menu, excellent lunch. Meatball appetizer: terrific. Lobster risotto: amazing. Chicken panini: delicious. Food was served really quickly, and they happily brought a water bowl for our dog. It's not cheap, but the food, service and unrushed experience was worth it!

As popular music softly fills the air, feast on fresh menu items from swordfish to penne ala vodka. Service was attentive, yet not overbearing. Good value for the money.

We chose this restaurant for dinner while we were on vacation in Cape Cod. We ordered mussels to share before dinner they looked good but we found that they were under cooked and there were many we could not even open . We let the waitress know they took it off our bill. Dinner was not much better. The filet... More
