Patio Espanol is not only a family restaurant, but a place where entire wedding parties take place. As such, it is huge. Our extended family arrived on a weekday evening when there were no major affairs taking place. Therefore, we sat at one of only three or four tables that were occupied by diners in the spacious, yet cozy restaurant.... More

Really excellent experience. An elegant, spacious interior completely at odds with the seediness of its Outer Mission neighborhood, with formally-dressed waiters - although it's casual dress for patrons. Although it's open to the public, it is associated with the Spanish cultural Center and seems to function as a dining club for the City's Spanish community. We started with a wonderful... More
