Description: Patrona Restaurant and Lounge is located in the heart of beautiful Ukiah, Mendocino County, California. We are a family-run business and view the restaurant as an extension of our kitchen and living room. Our building served as the town grocery store for over one hundred years. Now lovingly restored, it is softly lit with warm brick walls, filled with hand crafted tables from local artisans and run by a staff that cares. Bridget and Craig, two winery chefs, opened Patrona in 2003. The simple goal was to enjoy the great area we live in and share this with our family and friends. Our mission statement is simply “Happy People”. We need to be happy about what we do and how we do it. Our guests need to be happy and feel good as well as our neighbors and future generations. This means a thoughtful and sustainable business. Our menu changes are based on today’s catch from the gardens, ocean and local purveyors.

“Fortuitous Recommendation”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

We were on a 4-day road trip from Seattle to San Fran, stumbled upon Ukiah and was recommended Patrona by one of the first locals we met. Lovely food that was obviously prepared with the best ingredients and skill. Excellent service. We agreed that we had experienced one of the best meals of our holiday.

“Best dining in Ukiah”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Fresh, local, sustainably raised & organic food; creative cuisine; excellent drinks. Taco Tuesdays is a deal, with a variety of $3 small tacos and $5 magaritas - as well as their regular menu. Wednesday is Community Dinner: 3 courses for $20. Excellent wines from Mendocino County, as well as other regions. I've rarely disliked anything at Patrona's. Consciously prepared quality food; well trained & friendly, knowlegeable staff.

“I love their cocktails!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I have greatly increased my alcoholic intake since I discovered Patrona's cocktails. There are weekly specials and margarita's (real margaritas, not a mix) are $5 on Taco Tuesdays. Fun ambiance, great service, one of my favorite places in Ukiah.

“Wonderful find in Ukiah”
Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

We were so pleased to find this fine dining restaurant in
Old Town Ukiah. Food was very, very good, in a lovely room with Full bar and great Mendocino wine list. We had grilled trout done exceptionally well with Brussels sprouts and roasted Veggies, and seared Ahi with great ginger sambal, veggies and jasmine rice. Oysters were very good, too. Specialty cocktails, hot vanilla buttered rum and Gin, ginger and Pimm's cup drink were very good, as was key lime pie. Server, while very pleasant, needs more training: she didn't write our orders down, so she forgot that one drink was to be on the rocks rather than "up ," forgot the request for horseradish, and forgot one of two cups of coffee. All in all, we enthusiastically recommend Patrona.
