Excellent – Eat at Patry's last week and was very impressed, great food and great service. Patry?s serves great traditional French food with superb plating. If you are looking for a great French restaurant with affordable prices, this is the place for you.
Bon Appetit! – Fabulous hidden find if you are looking for a cozy french bistro. Affordable wine list compliments standard French fare (coq au vin, steak au poivre) and unqiue daily specials. If you have ever been to France and found that out of the way, sidestreet cafe where you could have dined and talked for hours with the staff and just enjoyed the moment, this bistro will delight you. Quiet and understated...it's not for the seen and be seen crowd. However, if you are looking for a truly delicious meal in a romantic setting, this is your place.
Patry's is Exellent – My wife and I eat out just about every night, but hardly eat at new places. The other night we decided to make a change and eat someplace new, but had no idea where to go. We live in the Bluffview aria and started thinking of restaurants around in that area. Calibration? No, although we love to get seconds and enormous quantities of food, we just weren?t feeling the home cooking style of their food. Cafe Italia? No, I really don't like chef Boyardee preparing my meals out of a can. Dunstan?s, no, we had eaten there the night before, great by the way. Then we thought of Patry's, which I had gotten good reviews from a few friends. Once there we were delighted to see a quaint little restaurant that actually has a rich history in Dallas. The photos on the wall are all from the old restaurant, which apparently closed in the 80's. My wife ordered the escargots and I ordered the stuffed leaks, which was followed by my peppered steak and her Salmon. After trying one of her escargots, I was eminently jealous, but once I tryed my stuffed leaks, I felt I had the upper hand. Once finished we soon got our main course, which looked impeccable. Once I took the first bite, I was sold. Although I had no urge to do so, my wife made me try her meal, which was also incredible. The plating of the meals made me feel although I was in a five star restaurant (hints my rating). The peppered steak was the best I think I've ever had, just writing this makes me want to go...now. I recommend this restaurant to everyone! If you ever can?t think of that place to go next time go to Party?s, you won?t regret it.
Reliable French bistro dishes at this reasonably priced Inwood restaurant are served in an eclectic and romantic cottage. – The Scene
If the name 'Patry' sounds familiar that's because owner Daniel Patry recently resurrected some of his late father's, the distinguished Chef George Patry's, beloved French recipes at this Inwood spot. Antiques, artwork and trinkets from all over the world including a mounted stuffed peacock double up as decor and gifts for purchase. Cozy table settings and soft lighting makes for a pleasant night out while the affordable menu and adequate wine list won't break the bank.
The recipes are old school staples using fresh ingredients and produce. Plump snails in a fragrant garlic butter makes the escargot de Bourgone the quintessential French bistro appetizer. The French onion soup is a dark hearty broth with a generous heaping of onions. Main courses like pepper beef tenderloin in cognac sauce and duck a l'orange are consistent with tradition. Hot beignets using Café Du Monde's famous recipe are the hit dessert of the house.
Hits: Owner, Daniel Patry and his staff charm diners with their welcoming Southern hospitality.
Misses: The menu, although safe and dependable, may not enthuse Dallas' highbrow Francophiles.
