About Patron Cave a Manger

Cave à Manger (nom feminin):
The combination of a Bar à Vin and a small Restaurant offering a large selection of wine also available for take away.

The concept:
Patron Restaurant is a Parisian style brasserie offering a carefully selected list of fine French wines, boutique cocktails alongside France’s most iconic dishes. Live music every Sunday night.

The menu:
A selection of small plates such as steak tartare, escargot, frogs legs, French onion soup, charcuterie and cheese. Our menu board featuring four to five mains including Patron’s signature dishes: open fire Onglet steak, melt in the mouth Duck Confit & classic Moules Frites. All mains come with a seasonal side of your choice.

The atmosphere:
With a Parisian feel and items collected during the owners travels driving through France. Patron has intimate bistro tables and a beautiful curved marble cocktail bar.

Background:
After the success of Café Gourmand, their petit bistro in Lexington Street Soho, Jean-François & Tanzi started their next chapter with Patron Restaurant in March 2015. On November 2018, they fully embraced the opening of Tabac Bar. The French and English couple met in 2016 in a cooking school at the heart of London and embarked on this gastronomic journey along with their little bilingual Terrier, Pippin.

Having read about Patron I was eager to visit. Lovely and cosy restaurant, great for date night. The restaurant didn’t feel too crowded even though it’s small. Tasty food with a great wine list and cocktails.

Everything was just lovely - its my second time and like it a lot. The food and drinks are not cheap and another vegetarian option would be good but still worth it for a special night out once a month or two. The evening was lovely with really good music too. The singer and pianist were very good, her voice beautiful.

Loved my first experience of the restaurant - the service was really excellent and the food delicious. I have already recommended to friends and will definitely be returning for brunch and also to sample the evening menu.

Love Patron - an authentic French brasserie. They have quite a small menu, but do every single dish well. You get attentive but not invasive service - perfect if you want a catch up with a friend. The frites were sensational!

Everything was fine apart from one of the meals which really tainted the experience. I had the mussels which were very small and didn't taste amazing. I was told that they are out of season hence the small size so they had given me a larger portion. I subsequently got food poisoning later that night... I would suggest taking these off your menu. The rest of the food was lovely if not a tad overpriced.

Restaurant Response

Dear Natalie We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience in our restaurant. We take all feedback very seriously and this was discussed in our weekly meeting this morning. The mussels were smaller because they are coming to the end of the season and the chef decided to recompense that by making all portions larger. We can reassure you that the mussels were fresh and the chefs always check the quality of every order we get. Mussels are one of our bestsellers among Patron classics and we have had no other reports of customers being sick from that batch. We do hope you will come back soon and try them again or if they are not to your taste we have seasonal fresh fish specials every weekend and will have regular fish main courses soon. We truly appreciate your feedback because every opinion helps us to improve. We hope we will se you soon again.

So good to find nice cooking and a wonderful équipe right on my doorstep. I am crying about Brexit but Patron Cave à manger almost helps me forget.
