My first few visits to The Patio were all after 10pm on Fridays/Saturdays. This is the best place in Palo Alto to go if youre in the mood for some good music, dancing, and drinks. The space is huge and theres a quieter outdoor area that provides a refreshing break from the dance floor. The crowd is diverse so theres definitely something for everyone. I love how the DJ never fails to play every genre and hits everything from oldies to the freshest sounds. It was only months after my first few visits I realized The Patio was also a restaurant and sports bar, open for brunch/lunch and dinner daily. The food is more than your average "pub food"-- its incredibly tasty and the menu is always evolving. They have a great draft/bottled beer selection and an impressive wine list to boot. The space is unbeatable, theres really no place better to be than sitting on the patio on a nice day enjoying a brew and bite. Top points: - dog friendly patio - awesome happy hour specials 4-7pm - huge menu with apps on special during HH - perfect place to enjoy sunshine/fresh air and a game on the 80" flatscreen - they book private events regularly - friendly staff... the kind who will remember your name after a few visits - karoke & trivia nights weekly
Ive been to the Patio A LOT in my last two years of living in Menlo Park. a few things that stuck out- they charged $100 for my friends drink when it was $10. After realizing their mistake, they credited the right amount back but it was going to take "2-3 business days" for the transaction to go through. This was really disappointing since that was her first experience and definitely last. Since then, Ive ALWAYS paid with cash. If you want to dance, get there around 9pm, get your drink on, hit the dance floor, and exit at 11pm when its too crowded and disgusting. I seriously dont understand why theres a line and wait for this place after 10. Its not worth it. You can literally play the same music out of your car in the parking lot and have just as much a good time. Cover charge aint worth it. Food is OK. Go eat somewhere else. Better selection in downtown Palo Alto. Outdoor is great. They could probably invest in making the restrooms a bigger or keeping it a little cleaner considering its clientele and location. I highly recommend pregaming because again, drinks are NOT worth it. I highly recommend Karaoke Nights- DJ Purple is awesome. Thursdays are filled with Stanford students.
Cove charge reasonable, music is good and drinks are ok, biggest issue is the security. Well if you a Male and your as big as they are, some how it makes them feel threatened and insecure. If your a guy once your in do not step out at all because the the Tongan securities are very sexest at re-entry. I stepped out for five mins while I checked to make sure a friend had left safely , then I was denied re-entry without a good reason even though I had just gotten my arm stamped 5 mins ago. The tonan securities really got disturbed and annoyed once there picture and video was taken and all they did was flash there flash lights and you so that you wouldnt get a clear pic. And then all they would say to every male outside was your drunk get out the street. Seemed very strange to me as one I was not drunk and two i was standing next to a parked car so there was no way I could be in the of the street. Meanwhile they let all the females that were outside in.
They had Pliny, thats what brought us here. So far all Ive tried is the burger with bacon, blue cheese and onions with sweet potato fries. It was great, huge portions but great. For dessert my boyfriend got the mini cupcakes. Im not usually a fan of red velvet, "red velvet is not a thing!", but it was the cream cheese frosting that won me over. We had a cool bartender/server, that always helps make the difference for a positive first impression. 4 stars because the ambiance isnt for me but Im sure its great if you like watching college sports and Stanford students everywhere.
Son unos racistas no me dejaron entrar x no traer una identificacion de california se merecen una patada en el trasero racistas y el puerco que esta de ceguridad en la entrada golpeo aun muchacho ase como 2 meses despues k no lo drjo entrar le puso una golpisa
My wife and I were supposed to meet with friends here while on vacation and were denied entry because we had out of State Licences (from Puerto Rico). After cracking a No hablo Engles joke, we were told that if we couldnt provide a passport, they wouldnt let us in. Who brings a passport to a bar? Very discriminatory. Some Latinos ARE US citizens. Do they ask people with Nevada Licenses for a passport? We didnt argue because who wants to go someplace they are not welcomed, but it was a horrible experience.
They put stuff on my bill that I never ordered. The bartender gave me a bill that was 25% higher than what I thought my tab should be. I guess she thought I would just sign it as all my friends were rushing to leave. If you read the reviews youll see this happened to other people. If you decide to go there DO NOT open a tab, just pay your drinks cash or they WILL gyp you at the end of the night. Drinks were weak. Service was terrible. Dont go there.
I dont write many reviews but really wanted to warn people about this place. Dont be surprised if you end up with items on your bill that were items from people near your table. When you point it out, instead of apologizing and taking it off your bill, the waitress argued and rolled her eyes. We were there to watch a football game and one of the waitresses changed the channel 3 times. Save yourself the headache and go down the street to The Old Pro.
Also got items added to my bill and the wonderful experience of *two* of my female friends being groped by the security on duty. Tried to talk to management about the groping and a short middle eastern? man told me "Get out of her you little f**". Upon closing the tab thereafter I noticed the excessive charges and wasnt prepared to fight about that too and risk the safety of me and my friends any further. What an awful place Ill never go again.
When the Rosewood closes down after last call (around midnight), The Patio is THE place to go to for the "after party". Largely filled with the local Stanford college kids, this place is hopping with good music and a lively and fun crowd. People of all ages were there partying, dancing and enjoying the music. They also have a great backyard/outdoor space. Worth going!
Easily the best happy hour in Palo Alto. You can grab a pitcher of Coors Light for five dollars. Yes, you read that correct. And you can add on some chicken tender strips for another five dollars. For those of us used to exorbitant Palo Alto menu pricing, the Patio is a refreshing change. A far superior experience to the Old Pro. Best sports bar in town.
Horrible place for working professionals to visit, the bouncers have a ninth grade education and are overly aggressive. Unprofessional bouncer staff to people wearing suits so I can only imagine how they are with relaxed dressed patrons. Dj was also horrible playing music from 1992. Place is pretty much a joke so avoid it, better places in the area.
