On Sundays this restaurant is very patronized /frquented with customers and on other days it is much less patronized/frequented

Thank you in advance

All three sentences are gramatically correct, but the first is by far the most idiomatic.

Hi. Welcome back.

The sentence with "frequented" is awkward, or unnatural, but the other two are fine.

"Well-patronized" is more natural than "very patronized." A natural phrase or adverb to intensify "frequented" doesn't come to mind. We usually use "frequented" when mentioning a certain clientele or type of people or others which may be found at a given location. "The street was frequented by prostitutes." "The restaurant was frequented by movie stars." "The park was frequented by pigeons."

Don't forget to place periods at the ends of your sentences.

Hi,
I think the restaurant is patronized "by customers", not "with customers "

Best wishes
Tuongvan the restaurant is patronized "by customers", not "with customers "
You're right, Van. (This problem applies only to the middle example, where all the problems are located.)
It is not confusing but normally as a teacher I would say the first is better but you can use the first one.
