We had a great experience at Patio Delray and will most certainly go again. The only recommendation I have for the owners is to make the dining room cooler. It was stuffy and almost warm...

We had our anniversary dinner at the Patio and everything was superb. We enjoyed our drinks with a complimentary appetizer. Dinner was delicious. They had soft music, a nice ambiance and the service was excellent. I would definitely go back again.

We started with the grilled long stem artichokes for an appetizer. They were delicious. For the main course I had the special of the evening - Chilean Sea Bass - it was excellent ! He had the Seared Ahi Tuna - also delicious ! The service is friendly and impeccable. The atmosphere is lovely. We highly recommend Patio Delray for a wonderful dining experience.

We needed a place with excellent food and a charming setting to entertain friends and, hopefully, avoid the hubbub of Atlantic Avenue. Armed with only Open Table descriptions and a couple of positive recommendations, we booked Patio Delray. I am happy to report that it passed our wildest expectations. It is a bit off the beaten path and does not offer the best exterior presentation, but from the time we entered the restaurant door until we left we were nothing but highly satisfied, as were our guests. The decor and setting were "old Florida"; the staff was friendly and welcoming; the wine list varied with excellent options; the menu (which focuses primarily on seafood) similarly varied and enticing. Everything we had, from the bread to the salad, to the appetizer to the entree and sides was nothing short of delicious. We each had different entrees and none disappointed in any degree. Our only regret was that the the food was so good and so plentiful that we failed to save room for dessert and so were unable to sample the enticing offerings on the dessert menu. We will definitely be back, and next time will save room for dessert.

Yelp has Patio Delray as the 2nd best Seafood Buffet in Delray. The Easter buffet food was average and rather expensive for what was offered. We were there mid afternoon and it was not crowded at all but plates piled up on our table and just getting just a 2nd "bottomless" Mimosa was also difficult. Service for a buffet is limited to just a few things and adding an automatic 18% gratuity while not removing plates or offering additional drinks is bad enough but to top it off... we never got the "included coffee" we asked for... just the $ bill. The small crowd should have tipped us off.

The seafood was excellent. Some of the best crab legs I have had in a long time. I did think paying the full buffet price for my 13-year-old son was a bit too much. I would come back for the seafood.

Patio Delray is always a pleasant and enjoyable experience. The food is fresh and made to order... which the only downside is there's a longer wait than preferred between ordering and being served the main course. Appetizers come to your table fairly quickly. However, once served you will not be disappointed. The grilled artichoke special appetizer was delicious! Thank you for another enjoyable evening.

We introduced two diners to Patio Delray and they were impressed. I always order the stuffed dates as a starter, a sweet and savory treat. This visit I ordered the crab cake dinner - a real winner of a dish. Lots of crab meat, served over a tasty succotash. Don't forget the cocktails. All four of us ordered the Pear Gingertini, served with a piece of candied ginger. Delish.

I am distressed to read your 2 star review. It appears this review was meant for another restaurant since we do not server steaks or pork chop. We here at Patio Delray is a seafood restaurant on George Bush Blvd in Delray Beach. If you would be kind enough to recount your recent dining experiences and perhaps give us a review which would more accurately describe your evening with us it would be greatly appreciated. Cheers, Miss Lily

My husband and I love this restaurant. The food is consistently good, Year after year. Last night I had the tuna with black rice. It was the best tuna I have had in a long time and The rice with jicama etc. was savory.
My husband had the pork. It was Wonderful!! He wants to go back next Sat. We probably will!

The restaurant is a bit off the beaten path so don’t expect Atlantic Ave hubbub/noise. It is quiet here and you can have a real conversation and enjoy your dinner companions. The outdoor patio is lovely- a relaxed old Florida porch, the food is consistently very good and Ms. Lily is delightful.
Go, relax, try it out and have a good meal! We recommend it

Very nice evening at Patio Delray. Fast seating at our choice table in the quiet corner next to the fountain with fish tank. Server Heather was attentive to every detail from start to finish. BR Cohn cab was enjoyed. Grilled artichoke was good starter followed by iceberg wedge salad for all four. An extra small plate medley of vegetables and garlic was provided as a extra while we waited for our entrees. Four different entrees of Chilian sea bass special, crab cake succotash, seafood Newburg and seared salmon met and exceeded each of our expectations. No room for dessert. Hope to repeat soon with family visitors.
