Patrician Grill

Posted by Staff / Listed on July 20, 2009 / review policy

Patrician GrillPatrician Grill is a classic diner on King East that seems to be open more for film shoots than it is for serving hungry patrons. Nevertheless, they server good and reasonably priced diner fare that rates it among one of the best greasy spoons on the east side.

I disagree! I worked across the street from it for a dozen years, and it was open to customers far more often than it was closed for film shoots.
They really know what they're doing with the classics: simple things like a grilled cheese sandwich remain the old-fashioned thing, not gussied up by using brioche, or multiple high end cheeses. My absolute favorite there has to be their baby beef liver. No knife required!

This is the greatest spot around. I lived around the corner for over a year and it was almost a weekly ritual to stop by. The food is good, well priced and the atmosphere second to none.
One criticism - its not open on Sunday!

By far the best greasy spoon in Toronto. Great atmosphere, great staff, fast service, great flavour and food (comparable to NYC greasy spoons), well priced.

I am ever grateful to my friend for bringing me here.

I agree with previous comments: It would be amazing if this place was open for weekend brunches.

Far too expensive for a pile of grease.. So much so that I got sick after eating. You don't expect a salad to be coated in as much oil as a basket of french fries but it was. Will not be returning again despite the silly but welcoming atmosphere. I can see why it's a staple for some to get caught up in the feel of a classic diner but it's just not by any means worth it. Like someone here has already said...if you must try it for the costumer service but leave your expectations at the bank PS.I'd recommend visiting one before hand if you're opposed to an additional 2 dollar service fee for the dial up run ATM in the basement.
