We planned several months for my Dad's 70th Bday and thankfully Patina delivered flawlessly as promised. We we able to get an intimate private room to accomidate our party of 22 and everything went absolutely perfectly. The service was phenomenal, our head waiter Jake was unbelievable in making sure things ran perfectly. The meal was perfectly timed for our speeches as well as the bday cake cutting before dessert. The butter poached lobster was unworldly, but all the other courses were also fantastic. Our champagne, wine and water glasses were perpetually filled, I never once had to ask any of the waitstaff for anything other than taking a snap shot of the old bday boy. This place is on par with per se, le bernardin, providence, jean georges, daniel and pretty much any fine dining restaurant I've been to in the US. Chef Tony even came out in the end to take a pic with the old man, we didn't even have to ask. I can't think of a more deserving place for 5 stars.
