We import olive oil, feta, honey, oregano and wines from Greece, the freshest organic vegetables from our farms in Los Olivos and wineries of our great state. Quality, simplicity, healthy and tasty food is the creation of that combination. Enjoy.”

We waited for the house bread and dip but it never came. It took forever for us to get our order in too. But the food was amazing and the drinks too. Love Petros!

We made the mistake of sitting outside which is prepared for cooler temperatures but it was still chilly. However, inside was too loud for us to enjoy dinner. They seemed understaffed. Our server was totally frazzled. We looked at the menu on line and were able to give him an appetizer and drink order immediately. Then he ghosted us. When we arrived the place wasn't half full but it quickly filled up. And, we didn't come to take our entree order for quite some time. The dips were good. When the entrees came they too were good. The moussaka was classic, served piping hot and very tasty. The meatballs were also tasty. I ordered the appetizer portion with chard instead of mashed potatoes. Of course, they brought potatoes. The runner did correct it quickly. The fish and chips were below average. Nothing was bad; just not memorable.

Enjoyed the experience. Second time in this restaurant, once in the summer and once in the winter. Both times I sat outside in their patio area and it was most enjoyable. Service is great from the hostess to the waiter. They were very accommodating to our preference of a table. Food was well prepared, did not take long and was appropriate for all diets--vegetarian, pescatarian, children or adults. Wine list offered a nice selection. We will return.

We come down from the Bay Area every year, always with dinner at Petros. Always fabulous, something special each time. We buy a liter of their awesome olive oil to take back with us.

Good food. Good service. Good atmosphere. Overpriced for what you get. Portions here are small. Take a look at the salmon plate. That was an order of "extra vegetables." Also this restaurant LOVES it's olive oil. Mine was swimming in it. It's a great way to take a really healthy meal and make it not so healthy. Just not my thing.

I returned my overly tart salad, I could not eat eat it since they put too much lemon. They still charged me for just a few bites of avocado I ate.

Saturday lunch on a sunny day - Petros was a great choice! Food was delicious! Especially the sesame crusted feta with honey and raisins and the four dip platter! The beef and lamb burger hit the spot for my husband and I shared the grilled veggie wrap with a friend. All very good! Generous portions and excellent service! We will go back for sure!

I used to love Petros but won’t be back. Our waitress was not attentive and actually kind of rude
The red wine was cold and I think it had been in the refrigerator for longer than it should have, tasted old
Both our entrees came out kind of cold but we didn’t say anything because the waitress was nowhere to be found
The desert was great- only good thing to say.
And the prices were ridiculous, way up from a year ago
Used to be a sure thing classic but probably not give it another try.

We went for 8pm dinner on NYE. The service was a little slow, though I understand it was a holiday. It still felt like the entrees and drinks could have been a bit faster. It got very noisy, especially as the musicians set up right next to our table. The lamb pasta was excellent, though the feta crusted rack of lamb could have been better. The meat wasn’t as tender as I expected and the cut was inconsistent.

There is a lot that I like about Petros. I like the location, I love the atmosphere when it's quiet, and the food is also great when it's not full. But when it's full (which is often, and that's to their credit) it can get a bit overcrowded, noisy, and frenetic. The servers, although they are wonderful and trying their best, they can't helped but feeling rushed, and this feeling is transmuted onto the diners. So things are missed - like orders are forgotten, or cutlery is not available - little things like that. Overall, I'd still go back, but I wish the service was as good when it's crowded, especially since it seems like a regular thing for them to be full.

The ambience was great. We sat outside and it was a little dark but they finally turned on some lights. The waitress was ready soon but we were not and then it took a while for her to comeback. My lamb was burned but it still tasted good. My husband pork was good.

Already responded to OpenTable that we were disappointed in the handling of a guest with medical emergency that once we got the paramedics there, we left and took our business elsewhere. We didn’t stay for dinner. Need emergency training for the staff.

Food was great! Ambiance really nice. Service was terrible. Waitress had too many tables and was not able to oversee and service all of them properly. I also advised this was a birthday celebration. Hostess said she’s alert the staff and will also note my guest, the birthday girl, was GF. In the end, nothing was done nor did they acknowledge her birthday in any way.

Restaurant decor was pleasant and inviting. Ambiance was relaxing. Service was well timed, friendly and engaging. Had the best tossed shrimp salad ever and the Chilean sea bass was perfectly prepared! The gyros pizza was amazing. There were ample portions that could be shared by a party of three. Would definitely return to try other dishes. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Sat outside with friends and there was no lighting save a small battery powered candle. We couldn’t se the menu or our food. What was really bad was noticing that every customer inside was also using their cell phone to read their menus. The serious lack of lighting needs to be addressed as it is inconvenient enough to lessen the impact of the otherwise good good and lovely staff! Fix this Petros, please. We won’t be back until this improves
