Dedicated to Fine Cuisine & Hospitality

We are entirely dedicated to providing our guests with the very finest quality cuisine, exceptional service and genuine hospitality at our extraordinary landmark locations and award-winning restaurants.

Our award-winning culinary innovation, hospitality and personalized services are the foundation of what make us a leader in the premium segment of the restaurant industry. Our connection to culture and the arts is also a fundamental component of our company.

Patina Restaurant Group was built on the belief that culinary excellence is an art form, and that a superb visit to a cultural venue should be matched with equally inspired cuisine. Museums, cultural centers and art-filled landmark locations provide the ideal environments for experiencing our high level of quality and service—after all, a visit to view a Marc Chagall art display is commemorative in its own right, but an exceptional culinary dish completes the package perfectly.

Since 1989, our PATINA® brand has stood for excellence and creativity. The Patina Hospitality Group™ is proud to offer great restaurants, catering, events, and consulting services for organizations and venues related to their hospitality needs. Let us be your partner, bringing you that special PATINA touch.
