“We eat here whenever we can”
Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Patit Creek is our most favorite restaurant in all of eastern Washington. They celebrated their 36th year of being in business this year. By our best estimate we started coming here 35 years ago and the food on every visit has been excellent. I had the halibut special this evening and it was special. The house made sour cream cheesecake with blackberry puree was the perfect ending to an excellent meal. We hope to keep going to Patit Creek for another 35 years :-)

“Excellent dining experience”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Patit creek restaurant doesn't look like a fine dining facility from the outside, but don't let that fool you. The food is amazing, all fresh and locally grown. The clam chowder was spot on, the salad with wonderful raspberry vinaigrette dressing was excellent and the bacon wrapped dates with tulip petals was fantastic. Dinner was an excellent linguini with shrimp, asparagus and mushrooms with a peppery sauce was very fine. They also have an excellent wine list.

“Anniversary dinner”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

We had dinner reservations for seven and I'm glad we did. There was one table left. They start you off with bread of course, we had wine as well. Then soup and salad. Really good salad. I had the duck breast and it was very good. My husband had the portobello saltembocca and it was even better! My cherry rubarb pie was amazing! As was the creme brûlée . We were not disappointed and will certainly come back. It's a very SMALL place so do check ahead! Service was excellent too.

“Fabulous Gourmet Food”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We rushed in after a long day on the road, barely making the last seating but so looking forward to an upscale meal. Every aspect of dinner was fabulous - tomato bisque and fresh bread, duck breast and steak cooked to perfection, creme brulee. We took our salads and side veggies to go and enjoyed while traveling the next day. Comfortable and not stuffy with decidedly upscale cuisine. Yum!!

“Gastronomical heaven!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

My wife and I just had an awesome celebratory meal at our absolute favorite restaurant...Patit Creek Restaurant in Dayton, Washington. We both ordered the Medallions of Beef Hiebert. If there is such a thing as a sinful meal, this is it. It came with the best split pea soup we've ever had along with a wonderful salad. We decided to pair a Waterbrook Malbec with our meal and it was PERFECT! Why do we love this restaurant? Three reasons: 1) The food is beyond good, 2) the service is the best in the Walla Walla valley, and 3) the ambiance is perhaps the best in eastern Washington.
Believe me, if you have a special occasion coming up and you live within 100 mikes of Dayton, you should consider making a rerservation at Patit Creek Restaurant. You'll be glad that you did!
