We always sit outside on the patio and it was so nice on a warm summer night. We enjoyed a delicious fresh peach and arugula salad that had us licking the plate clean! The Chilean sea bass was so juicy and fresh.....this is one of our very favorite date night place for the food and ambiance ...and great service/

The food, as always, is outstanding. It was a little chilly inside - for some reason restaurants feel like they need to up the AC when it's hot outside. Then, when it cools down, they forget to turn the AC off. I kept having to put my jacket on, and then, when the fan stopped, take my jacket off again.
Service was good - a little slow on the drinks which seemed strange because it wasn't a busy night. All in all, I love that place.

Everything we ordered was amazing. Friendly, but not pushy, service even though the place was crazy busy. Great vibe too.

Food was good but fries were cold. Wine glasses too big for less than a half pour. Service was outstanding although very busy holiday lunch.

We heard great reviews about the chicken Parm, so when we had a friend in town from NYC we made a reservation and expected the best!

Unfortunately the waitress was distracted and not attentive at all. And when the chicken parm arrived, it was cold.

We are Manhattan Beach locals and will not be back, and will not recommend it to anyone. It's unfortunate because we like to support local businesses.

Nice summer day sitting on patio with attentive server who suggested good appetizers and entrees but very crowded and noise level high. Will return but not between 12 and 2.

I was disappointed that although the reservation (open table) asked whether it was a special occasion, it was a milestone birthday celebration- so i noted that on the reservation. There was absolutely no acknowledgement by the restaurant staff of the occasion. After I brought it up and mentioned it to the server, she did comp one of the desserts (thank you) . Staff is not exactly friendly or welcoming.

The music was super loud during lunch. We told the waitress about three times and the volume kept going up. It's not a good place to have a lunch meeting. Won't be going back there.

While nice to sit outdoors, the area is very busy and there are tons of children playing just outside the restaurant and many in the restaurant. This is not a date or intimate atmosphere. Indoor seating was very lively, too.

However, the food is terrific start to finish and their wine list is reasonably priced. Highly recommend as long as you go in knowing what you will get from the ambiance.

Outstanding food and terrific service. They had no trouble at all accommodating our group of 12. Everything came out perfectly. The location is great, with easy parking in the structure below the plaza. They had a very tasty and healthy children’s menu as well. We love this place and will definitely be back.

Petros' needs to turn the lights up so that people can see the menu, the bill and the person sitting across from them. So many people were using the flashflights on the phone.

There were 4 of us. the 2 chicken dinners were very good, as was the fish dinner; however, the Mousaka dinner which I had was not hot, overcooked and burnt on top. I asked for some red tomato sauce, and they gave me the white sauce, which again was cool and not hot. Three out of four dinners were very good, but the one was garbage.

Service was slow, but once we got served the waitress was very attentive.

Petros, especially on their outdoor patio, is consistently a winner. Friendly service, good (not amazing) food, wonderful people watching. We are repeat diners and we plan to return.

The server was either in a horrible mood and something had happened to her or she just really didn’t care about her job. We were a table of 10 people and it was not a busy night. I boasted about this restaurant being a classically good experience to my friend and our table and the service was pathetic. Food was great. When the owner is there the service is impeccable. Maybe next time.

Food is quite good here but the service is terrible. Waited forever for a waiter, took forever to get our food and finally got up to leave and the y still wouldn't bring us the check. Service needs huge improvements.

This was my second dining experience at Petros. The food is amazing. The staff is very nice. That said, the service is just not great. The first time we went they forgot one of our salads and it didn’t come until our entrees arrived. Furthermore, they didn’t set the table with silverware and nobody came to our table so we had to just get up and get our own. This time, had somewhat similar experience. We were a party of six and our salads / app’s too a while to arrive and then they served our entrees shortly after while we were half way done with the salads and apps. Poor timing again. Change that and i give it a 5 all around.

Great food. Great location. As far as a neighborhood restaurant the ambiance is nice. Our service wasn’t great the night we were there but it’s hard to imagine that is standard. So, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and will return because food was great.

Petros is the best restaurant in Manhattan Beach. If you sit on the patio, it is a great place to people-watch. Food is excellent and service is great.
