“A Find In Guerneville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2011

We ate at this restaurant two nights of our four day stay. I had the ahi tuna and the steak. My wife just had the tomato artichoke soup the first night due to a stomach bug and the prawn risotto the second night. We could not have been more pleased. It's not Gary Danko, but Chef Patrick is certainly worth a visit. Both the ahi tuna and the fillet mignon were cooked exactly as I requested, seared and medium rare respectively. You will not be disappointed in the food or the service. It's casual, so a nice place to stop for dinner after wine tasting in the county. Don't miss this place!

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2011

When I first saw the menu in the window, I thought,"Wow, so much better than I would've expected", and yet, oh well. Quite mediocre, but better than other places, I suppose. The food was nothing special, and the service was questionnaire. You can do better.

“amazing gem in guerneville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2010

We just finished dinner there and were so pleased with our meal. I had the veggie pasta and my husband had the shrimp pasta pesto. Both were excellent. The crab cake appetizer was also very good - hardly any filler (breadcrumbs, etc) in it at all. The wine selection by the glass was good and priced very reasonably. We had the Chocolate ganache for dessert which was great. The staff was lovely, especially Chef Patrick. Don't be deterred by the storefront location... every other aspect of the place is 5 star, especially considering the prices.

“new location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2010

chef Patrick is no longer located in Pat's restaurant!!!! He has been located across the street in a new place for more than a year. Pat's no longer offers dinner- bkfst & lunch only.Chef Patrick is a great place to have dinner. The food is an exceptional bargain, especially the "specials" on Mon & Tues night $10.95 for pork cassoulet last night I was there. Delicious! The wine list is ok for the location( Guerneville) & is reasonably priced.

“Food okay, staff friendly and quirky”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2010

Good:
-staff is friendly
-think the place has been around for 50 years and nothings changed
-good about refilling coffee

Bad:
-while the food is ok, it's very ...country cooking?... diner style?...

I rated it average because I thought the food was just okay. The staff was nice, the atmosphere is old-school diner style and the town is just so cool. It makes me feel like i'm living in the 70's. Pat's also only takes cash. If you find yourself without cash there's a very strange 'atm' so you don't have to worry you'll get stuck doing the dishes after your meal.
