Terrific Northern California local fare expertly prepared in a great location with very attentive service.
This was my first visit to Central Market. The menu was fun and interesting, and the food was AMAZING! There were four people in our group, and everyone loved every dish. The server suggested a good wine pairing for my short ribs and the staff who kept our glasses full and our table clean was very attentive. I highly recommend Central Market and I look forward to dining there again soon.
Best restaurant in Petaluma for farm to table dining!
The food here is unbelievably good. Our server was so attentive without being a helicopter server and she recommended the tastiest choices. We were on a high top and it was nice to see the world go by and enjoy a fabulous meal. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
They were very accommodating, and pleasant. Food was good, enjoyed the options. Would suggest checking this place out.
Food was amazing and the wine list very impressive. Our server, Luc, was from Paris and made some excellent recommendations for us. I highly recommend this restaurant on your next visit to Petaluma.
Impeccable service, and wonderful wine list. Our food was absolutely delicious, and we were treated with the utmost care. Everything was seasoned perfectly, and cooked beautifully. I haven’t been here in years and now I can’t remember why. Five star experience.
Everything was delicious wait every little bite on our plate
I made reservations for my husbands birthday. I requested a regular table but we were seated in a high top table, even though there was a booth available that someone else got who came after us. The food was very good. Our waiter was aloof and not very friendly-perhaps a European thing.
Great food and great service. It's on our short list of restaurants we frequent.
Have always had a good time eating here. It's my husband's and I's go to date night restaurant. Food has always been delicious. Have never been disappointed and the service is always wonderful. Lastly the butterscotch pot of cream with maccaroons is the best dessert EVER!!!!!
Central Market never disappoints. My guests had the classic short ribs and raved about the taste. My favorite is always the butterscotch pot of cream- you can't go wrong with the combo either.
One of the worst meals I have ever had! I will not return to this restaurant… sent the beet salad back, they did take that off the bill… it was my second visit and my last.
Complimentary dessert for birthday was a lovely touch!
Our table was way to close to the next table. Made it very Uncomfortable
This is a foodie paradise! The menu is small and pays careful attention to detail. The food delivers everywhere you need it to. The service is attentive but not overly invasive. Fantastic! Thank you!
Food & Wine was delicious! We came with our daughter and it was very accommodating! There was someone who seemed to work there that wasn't wearing a mask which was a little concerning but everything else was GREAT!
The food was excellent. Halibut appetizer was fantastic as were the short ribs...and the pot of butterscotch!
All of thefood was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Would definitely go back again when in Petaluma.
Love this restaurant
Over all love coming here, still a little nervous with indoor dining and seeing so many people without masks even while waiting to get served with nothing on the table, didn't see much change in how the dining room was ventilated. Still, great food, great staff.
It was great to be there dining again. Interesting menu with great flavors.,our server was very helpful and went out of her way to skillfully serve a Birthday cake to our party.
One of the best pizzas in memory, wonderful wood oven grilled vegetables and an excellent Sicilian red. Terrific service and ambiance.
Fun place to dine, service was excellent!!!
Really, considering the food and the detail given to its preparation, this is a value. The Drakes Bay Baja oysters were fresh, bright, memorable. Perfect service at all levels. will be back to try more offerings. Thanks, a great birthday present to me!
Great place. Can’t be beat for Petaluma! Try the pork chop!
Good food. Couple dishes could have used more salt. Would definitely dine here again
Having been away for a year and a half, was wonderful to return to our favorite place. CM never disappoints !!! Great food, great service! Thank you all.
We’ve been here before, a few years ago, and it was great.
I wanted to return for my birthday, knowing that the chef was very accommodating to my plant-based eating regimen, but this time the wait staff seemed put-out by my requests. I couldn’t even get a simple green salad without paying full price for a modified salad on the menu. No creativity here.
And, I assumed I would get some sort of recognition about my birthday since it was asked if there was anything special about our visit. It seems that they don’t read these questionnaires from opentable.
Food is so flavorful with interesting choices you don’t find elsewhere. Staff is accommodating and friendly. Love this place!
Wonderful food, super fresh. Everything was delicious at this farm to table restaurant.
Delicious food, attentive service
Awesome place that often gets over-looked because there is another good restaurant on the same block.
PAINFULLY SLOW SERVICE we had to ask over and over for help. It was not even 1/3 full at 5:15.
Love this restaurant's food and service. Always a pleasure. So lucky to have this place in the Bay Area.
Central Market is always very, very good. The menu is interesting and thoughtful and food well prepared. This is a restaurant you can count on to deliver excellence every time. I am most grateful to know that they are able to continue after this disruptive past year and sincerely hope they will continue enriching our dining experience in Sonoma County for years to come.
Delicious food/great service
Went here for my daughter's birthday - everything we really terrific. We have eaten at more expensive places in Sonoma and Napa Counties and this place rivals them all as far as food quality, flavor, and service. Prices were definitely fair for the high quality. The place has a lively vibe as well, Highly recommend
Very popular Petaluma standout. They have an open kitchen that's in the center of the restaurant for all to view. They have a brick wood fired oven for their homemade pizza's which look delicious with a hand tossed paper thin dough show. There are a variety of tables from traditional to high tops which are quite comfortable. You will see owner and chef Tony overseeing the operations and greeting customers. Their duck wings are an interesting twist on the traditional chicken wings. I believe they are first fried and then finished in a sweet/spicy sauce; delicious. The charcuteriere platter is divine with fresh housemade salami's, pate', cornichons, peasant bread, olives, and a fig jam. Entree's are basic, homemade pasta being one of the standouts, along with grilled meats and fresh fish of the day. Salads are nice as well. They serve beer and wine only and the selections do not disappoint. Reasonably priced and service is slow which unfortunately is now the norm for the restaurant industry due to COVID as the labor pool is scarce.
My husband and I had a wonderful meal. CM always has great service.
