We have been to this restaurant 3 times now and have had a lovely time each time. The food is delicious. We have tried a number of things including the lamb schwarma, Calamari, dolmades, Baklava and a few of the other main dishes. Everything was yummy and the service quick and friendly.

My fiance and I went there for a late dinner (about 9pm) and the food was great. I would recommend the Ouzi. Atmosphere was nice the neighborhood was somewhat quiet which made it better. Our server was very helpful and did not rush us out even though the restaurant closed at 930pm. He was very courteous.

Best Mediterranean food!!!
We LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this restaurant!!! I found it through YELP and we ordered Meza tray: Assortment of Hummus, Baba Ghanouje, Labnie, Olives, Falafel, and Dolmathes we also had the Petra Chicken Salad. The chicken is OUTSTANDING and we've tried a lot of Mediterranean food in several cities this is by far the BEST. My 9 year old was in heaven. We arrived around 5:30 and were surprised there was only one table occupied. We weren't sure why it was so empty during dinner time. By 6:15 the place was filled with eager diners and the service was great and fast! Don't miss this place it's a few blocks from the Space Needle too!

Too much garlic
We loved our dinners...lamb kebabs and prawn kebabs. Had some great rice on the plate and vegetables. The yogurt sauce on top was to die for. But we got home a few hours later and all we could taste was garlic. Still delicious, but I wouldn't recommend this as a place for a first date.

Tucked away on a corner away from most of the rest of Belltowns foodie scene, Petra is a small gem. We were looking for something Mediterranean and decided to try Petra over Lola because reservations were available at our preferred time. Most of us had the Ouzi, which was simply spectacular! Yes, we'd go back just for that dish. Alas, we didn't try any small plates but I wish we had.
Service was good and always made us feel attended to and the atmosphere was good, but wasn't anything special. I found the restaurant to be cold, so might be good to bring a small jacket to protect from overzealous AC.

A great find in downtown Seattle
This is a lovely addition to the downtown dining scene. More casual and low key than the upscale restaurants around the retail core, but excellent food and top service. This is more of a neighborhood restaurant than fine dining. The food is outstanding and reminds me of the old Mediterranean Kitchen on Queen Anne. The baba ganouj was fabulous. Even though the restaurant was slammed on a Friday night, the service was very efficient and friendly. We didn't have to wait long periods between courses.

Petra serves superb middle-eastern cuisine with its own special touches. Service is warm, prompt, and professional. This is a place where one can relax and depend on the best.
