    The food was good and tasty. The service was excellent. I liked the tapas concept. Ambience was good and the drinks were perfect.

    I recently had lunch with one of my girlfriends that I hadn't seen in awhile, over the weekend and we had a great time! Our server, Peg was equally as awesome, as the restaurant. She had great recommendations for food and wine; her service was AWESOME and she has a upbeat and down to earth personality. I do want to add that I was observing the other servers in the restaurant and not one of them had a smile on their face.....it was pretty depressing. But not Peg! We ordered salads and tapas. Our favorite were the Sea Scallops Appetizer and a shrimp dish (which I can't seem to find on the online menu); both of which Peg had recommended. LOVED the wine; Congress Springs Viognier, too!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 5/25/2013
    I booked this restaurant because we had noticed on our previous visit to Petaluma that it had a great location right on the river in downtown. However, it turns out only the bar seating has the view, the main dining area is blocked by a solid wall and smokey glass panels from seeing much at all, which was disappointing. Our food was very good though, and the waiter and bus boys were really excellent. Only the crème brulee for dessert fell a bit short of our lovely evening at Grafitti. A nice bonus was the female jazz singer in the bar, with just the right songs (and the right volume) for our mood. We will go back and just dine in the bar...

    My boyfriend and I stopped in here one Friday evening and had a lovely time. The food was delicious, I'm a sucker for anywhere that serves creme brulee though. There was live jazz music in the bar which added a nice touch. Also, they have jazz bands on the patio on Saturday afternoons. It's a great place to stop in for a cocktail and enjoy the ambiance.

    Upon arriving I learned that my party would be an hour late. While I waited, no one offered to let me order something, or even to bring some bread. When our food arrived, the two salads we had ordered (luncheon sized) arrived with no dressing whatsoever. Also, the waiters took plates away as soon as a person finished, instead of waiting until everyone had finished. Since I had invited my friends from Marin to come here for lunch, I was most disappointed, and almost embarrassed.

    Nice night out at Grafitti. I ordered the Halibut, but it had to be replaced with Mahi Mahi, which was fine. It was good, but the bed of artichoke ravioli it sat on was excellent. Service was very good, attentive, but not too intrusive. Walked to theater after, so location a plus. Definitely recommend.

    We went with my mom and dad for dinner and were immediately impressed with the ambiance. My father requires that his food have no salt, and the chef was very cooperative and accommodating. The food was excellent and the wait staff was friendly, professional, and on top of everything. We will definitely return and recommend Grafitti to all.

    My husband & I wanted to have nice Valentine's dinner together. Food was good. Service just average. Waitress was not the friendliest, rushed us. When we were given the dessert menu we literally had 2 minutes to decide, when we said we were not ready to order dessert yet we were told that the restaurant wanted to turn tables so we then asked for our check. We were so shocked that we were pretty much told we couldn't enjoy eachothers company. Our time at the restaurant wa s 35 minutes. Drinks, appetizer, salad& dinner! I was going to give my husband a wedding band during Desert but that did not happen so my plans got all changed. We wrote the owner & have not heard back. It's safe to say that we will not be returning to this restaurant.

    This was probably our 5th or 6th time at Graffiti, and we were very pleased. It has a nice atmosphere, and the food is consistently good. Not only was is New Year's Eve, but also my husband's birthday, so we wanted to celebrate somewhere where we knew it would be good, and we were not disappointed. The only thing that surprised us a bit was that they did not offer any special menu for New Year's Eve - altho their menu is good, we thought they might have at least some special entrees.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 12/23/2012
    Graffiti's was the selected location for a family pre-Christmas dinner. It was a perfect setting. Elegant, only a whisper of noise, and an attentive server. But I keep hoping for more from Grafitti's food. It's more than acceptable, but just doesn't rise to the level of the setting. I asked for my ribeye to be medium rare. It arrived medium or a little more. And the sauce was more than a good piece of beef should require. Similarly, my wife found her sea bass unexciting. (I didn't question the other members of the party for fear of ruining the festive mood.) I'm pleased that Grafitti's is in Petaluma and would go back for another Christmas dinner, but otherwise I prefer the bar menu for outings with my wife.

    We were a party of six with different food requests and questions. Our server was extremely patient with all of us and her upbeat energy and attention to detail was quite exceptional. When was the last time you were at a moderately priced venue where the server refolded your napkin when you left the table? She definitely made our special occasion even more so. Oh, the food was excellent as always.

    Food was good but nothing revelatory or memorable. Sauces and dressings were on the sweet side. Food presentation was nice verging on trendy. Service was excellent, friendly and relaxed. Everyone seemed to enjoy working there. Live music in the bar was excellent but was too loud for the restaurant. Made it more of a party atmosphere and less intimate. Lighting was a too bright. I wouldn't recommend it if it were a restaurant in SF, but I don't know the restaurant scene in Petaluma, so it might be fine.

    Hip decor, hip music, venue availability to serve all number of parties Typical age range: 25-40 Wonderful services (servers, bartenders, hostess, bussers, manager, cooks)!!! I took my boyfriend and his buddy and fiancee to Graffiti for his birthday! It was a sexy night of wine and dine. We ordered perfectly sized meals (tapas) which included pork slidders, spicy marinated shrimp, tuna salad, chicken satay, among much more.....not to mention, we all shared exquisite mojitos of various tropical flavors that were to die for! You must visit!!!! Ladies, wear your prettiest dresses and heels. Gentlemen: dress casually, just no flip flops or baseball caps. :( This gem is hidden; it brings a little of SF vibe to fun P-town! LOVE IT!!!

    Near the movie theaters and didn't expect how fabulous this place was. The food was so different and there were so many dishes to choose from. I ended up the the stuffed Portobello which was pretty amazing. I've not had anything like it before and everything on the menu was innovative. We will be back since we haven't yet begun to explore this enticing menu. The service was very good and the wait staff attentive. It's right by the river so a lovely evening view also.

    Dined on 6/9/2012
    We really wanted to like Graffiti. 4 stars on Open Table, nice setting on the water, views to the foothills. I guess this is a case of "looks 10, dance 3." Multiple friends told us to cancel and recommended spots nearby with better food and service. We should have listened. The first servers were attentive and quick with our appetizers. The second set forgot us and lost our order. After 20 minutes, the new waiter admitted it and asked "what did you order again?" We paid and left. I spoke to the mgr about it, telling him we'd been told to cancel because of service and food. All he did was nod, sort of apologize and ask who our server was. Needless to say, we're now part of the "go somewhere else crowd." The bus-boy was the best.

    Graffiti is a great alternative to all the Italian restaurants in Petaluma. The decor is very hip. We stuck to the tapas menu and found the food a little hit and miss. The cheese plate was excellent; the beet kim chee was far from kim chee. I plan on returning to try more dishes. The selection is large and creative.
