Petra Mediterranean Bistro serves authentic Mediterranean cuisine inspired by the cultures of Jordan, Lebanon, Greece and the Northern shores of Africa. Start off with a Petra signature appetizer, including hot wings, scallops, calamari or fries. If you�re having a hard time choosing just one, order the Mezza Tray, which comes with hummus, baba ghanouje, labnie, olives, falafel and dolmathes. Authentic entrees include the Taste of Africa, Mediterranean Prawns or Salmon and the Owner�s Favorite Petra Royale.
Petra Mediterranean Bistro offers a number of catering menus and is happy to serve at any event or special occasion you may have coming up. Choose from the standard catering menu, a quick lunch, an appetizer-only or create-your-own custom catering menu. If you want to have your event in house, Petra Mediterranean Bistro has a menu for that too.
Excellent blend of exotic flavors. Their Mezze plate is listed as an appetizer but a great meal, too. Minor drawback: they only serve caffeinated Turkish coffee. Having a decaf option (coffee or espresso) would be nice.
Small, cozy & quiet.
Food is so good here, we keep coming back. Our favorite is the mezze plate and the lemon garlic chicken main course. Highly recommend this place!
I go to this restaurant for dinner every time I go to Seattle. Food is unfailingly delicious; service, always excellent. I wish they would open a branch in Portland, OR, where I live!
This was probably the worst dining experience I've had in many years. The food was mediocre and overpriced. Although the service started out being fantastic, when one of my friends told the manager that her food was so salty that it was inedible, the manager turned extremely rude and refused to fix the situation. Instead, he insisted that she pay for the food she clearly wasn't going to eat or be banned from the restaurant. Even though I walked in wanting to find a Mediterranean restaurant that I could frequent and bring others to, I cannot recommend a place where the manager and staff do not respond well to customer concerns.
Always love coming here, takes me back to my neighborhood of East Dearborn back in Detroit. Where the Lebanese and Middle Eastern Cuisine dominates! This place is too legit to quit, the Veggie Royal is my personal favorite and the Mezza Platter is a must.
The food here is really well-prepared. The vegetarian platter is a taste treat of hummus, baba ganouj, falafel, dolmas, and rice, each with a distinct and very flavorful taste. The garlic shrimp is a garlic-lover's dream. Both times we have been here, service has been charmingly enthusiastic and friendly.
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.
We love Petra. Long may it shine!
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.
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.
