“Our menu is a combination of the best ingredients that Greece and California cuisine have to offer. 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.”

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.

Great atmosphere. Delicious food. We had the fried cheese, it was excellent. Live music was mostly hreek and some modern. It was fun.

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.

Petros is always consistent, always good. As a Greek I would highly recommend the food and the selection of wines is exquisite. I’ve been coming here for many many years.

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

Table wasn’t ready when we arrived on time for our reservation. We waited 30 minutes to be seated. Food took over an hour and a half to be served. Food was unpalatable. We won’t be back.

This is the second time this has happened.

We ate bread for dinner. Packed place with customers and no one was happy with the food

Long time residents of Manhattan Beach but we had never eaten at Petros. So we tried it. Not likely to return. My lamb in the house specialty lamb pasta tasted well past its prime. Not tasty. My wife's moussaka was good. Pretty late night dinner so not many people were there. Service was satisfactory.

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.

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.
