Great Find

We were there with a large group. The service was excellent. One of the people I was with suggested the lamb. Don't miss the lamb. It was fabulous.

When you travel and dine out often, coming upon a gem when you were not expecting it is a rarity. The Patio hit all marks. Ambience A+, red roses on every table, lighting that should be in every high end restaurant and a well designed, quiet respite. Brooks plays the acoustical guitar like a master during the week. Roaming quietly... More

I went to The Patio on Guerra for a business dinner. The service was great, food was good and I loved the atmosphere. My only problem was finding the place.

My family and I dined here today for lunch after some Christmas shopping. Among us we had their lobster bisque, Cobb tower salad, and envueltos which are featured here in my photos. The restaurant was decorated beautifully for Christmas, our server was fantastic and beyond efficient. The building is historical and very popular with the locals. Go, go, go!

After one of our friends from work highly recommended this restaurant, we decided to try it out. The restaurant was very clean, service was great, and the food was superb. Definitely will return!

The hotel is beautiful and service is great but the food was average. Tortilla chips had a weird taste. Was here for business so by the time I got to eat my enchiladas they were cold already, not the restaurant's fault, but they didn't taste that great. I was in south Texas I was expecting some Kind of Mexican taste... More

I had the snapper papillote. Fish steamed in banana leaf. No seasoning. I definitely would not order it again.
