Does it have to be a flush patch with the wall?... or, can you build some curb/bench wall?

I'd thoroughly chip and clean the surface, dowel any deep patches and use fiber and modified patching mortars if you're staying flush with the wall. Mapei has several good choices e.g. Plantitop X...

If curbing is an option I'd add rebar and 4000psi concrete mix.

What's the situation? It looks as if someone excavated below the original grade sometime after the wall was built, and put in a new sidewalk. Is the wall holding something up?

use a modified patching cement

I always used to go to the local brick yard and get a bonding agent that I would mix into cement I recall having a similar situation and I drilled some led anchors into the wall and put some screws in. I could not tell if the existing rebar was deteriorated.
