Food was delicious! The grilled Octopus was tasty and so was the Feta Grilled Lamb Chops. We are definitely going to go back soon.

We were greeted and seated promptly, at an outdoor table as we requested. Service was prompt and courteous. Our food was excellent. The lamb pasta was outstanding, as was the calamari. The chicken and shrimp souvlaki was good, but a little dry.
Overall, a very good experience.

Great service in addition to great food equals happy customer! We will return... From booking, to getting our table, to the service quality and the great menu, this is a great place for dinner for 2 or family lunch or dinner. The surroundings makes it great for family with young children while you can still enjoy your meal if you don't have any kids. The food was simply delicious. I mean I tried my granddaughter kids meal and that was very very good!

The menu here is great, and we were excited to eat out on the patio at Metlox Plaza. We had a nice table with a heat lamp which was perfect. Our reservation was ready when we arrived, but after the hostess sat us we waited for over 10 minutes and she finally came back and offered to take our drink orders but midway through saw our server and told us he’d be right with us. He absolutely was overwhelmed so I don’t hold him entirely responsible for the sub-par service all night. Although I did see tables being thoroughly cleaned, I did receive a menu that had food stuck to it, and a water glass with particles in it. Appetizer plates had things stuck on them and had to be sent back. Drinks were dropped off with wine pooling on the table from being hurriedly dropped off. The appetizer delivered was not the one we ordered- but since no server appeared for at least 5 minutes we ate it, and it was delicious. There were at least 3 entrees we tried to order that were unavailable, which would’ve been wonderful to know at the start of our meal so that we’d have a few minutes with the menu. My daughter had a very nice filet mignon, however it was way too rare, and once again, no server to correct the issue, so we cut out the too red part and ate the rest. My dad loved his lamb. I quickly chose a flatbread pizza since there was no moussaka and none of the gyro entrees available. It was the low point of the meal for sure- tepid, and very dough with little flavor. Dessert was lovely- both the baklava and the Mille feuille were good. Sitting outside was a little marred but the overflowing trash cans all around metlox. Not sure what the deal was but there were temporary cardboard trash bins set up as well and all were overflowing- as a result lots of birds around picking things out, and trash blowing around the floor as the night got breezier. For a $250 bill for a party of 3, I do expect a higher level of service.

Outdoor seating at North side of the restaurant leaves a lot to be desired-sun in your eyes and a stiff wind. Not to mention uncomfortable chairs and tables that are too high.
Food has been better in the past though our server was quite nice and efficient.

I use to love Petros. But I think the service, quality and overall has gone done. I informed them that it was my husband's b-day. Did not get any happy birthday greeting. Got there and was shown to the table with not much enthusiasm. Had to ask another waiter to get our order for the main course. Just overall experience not the same as before. The portions have gone smaller and they do not provide the bread anymore but the price has gone up.

The service was GREAT as well as the atmosphere. I had the chicken souvlaki with rice and vegetables. It was quite bland. The dessert was excellent. I’ll give the restaurant another try but will order a different entree.

Host interaction was great however that was it.
Asked our server for wine advice in regards to something not sweet and was offered a sweet hellenic wine.

Once I switched to another glass of red it came out as cold as wine from 7-11. Then i let another possibly runner then server comes back and says oh you like wine room temp...

Food comes out i get the Colorado lamb and my lady the sea-bass and guess what everything was cold 0@ LLP dc the fish. Guess that was the theme of the day.

I understand mistakes happen however service and hospitality was lost upon this place this particular day. Sunday 3/21.

The reason why i give this two stars is because not one time did a manager come by and ask whats going on. Server wasn’t fast enough to rectify these issues. Maybe next time.

Petros is always a favorite. The food is delicious, the service is outstanding and the ambience is wonderful. We sat outdoors in the patio/courtyard at a lovely table with a nice cozy warm heater and surrounded by trees with beautiful white lights. A very romantic evening! I had snapper and my husband had the lamb pasta. We shared the calamari appetizer, which was just like it was in Greece.

We wanted to go out for a special dinner and Petros was the perfect choice. Outdoor seating was great (with heaters for when it got chilly). We read that they had a limited menu but there were more than enough choices. The food and service were incredible and the COVID protocol made us feel very comfortable.
