My first visit to El Patio was a mixed bag. Based on the modest location and tea room like atmostphere I did not expect to be amazed. We ordered a sampling of appetizers. Bloodsausage chicken and beef empanadas,sweetbread and the melted cheese. All were very good. Then came the main dishes. Chicken or beef breaded and fried with a cheese topping. These were very big portions served with French fries and sliced tomatos and onions. The salads were poor grade hot house unripe tomatos. Two of us had steak. The rib eye was nicely grilled and decent but a bit chewey. The T bone was terrible. the worst I have ever had. Worse than a Sizzler steak house even. It was grey in color and over cooked, I ordered med rare and it was well done and about a half inch thick and dry and chewey. My advice here is to skip the steaks which are poor quality and overpriced and the salads. Stick to the appetizers and fried meats. The desserts were okay but not to dye forin spite of the in house bakery. The caramel cream is very heavy and sweet. I think an aquired taste for many. The bread pudding was moist but needed more flavor like rum. A crepe with caramel filling was rubbery and not good. So there are some good things here but be careful what you order. It's a mixed bag. The wait staff is young and inattentive. One kept trying to take plates off the table with food on them we were still eating. don't think this place will become a neighborhood favorite with me.
