One of few restaurants I can still go. Eating very healthy at home made it difficult for me to eat out. But at that restaurant, I really enjoy the quality of the food. After the last dinner with friends, I had a very pleasant sensation in my body for hours, and I was enjoying remembering the food we had...even though it was a pizza! My deep gratitude to Peter and the Team!

Antipasti platter great value. Fish - ling cod - much better this week. Pasta was tender sand delicious. Pork on polenta delicious, too. Service was appropriate for 20% auto gratuity. Good night at Lowell’s.

The rock cod portion (possibly 6 oz) was small for the $31 price tag; the fish was extremely fishy tasting. We were told the vegetable cake was an entree size portion - for $21 one loaf slice of a vegetable cake over some greens is not an entree size portion. Both dishes were salty, as if the chef was a smoker and could not taste his/her food. Very disappointing meal. I also noted the macro bowl has gone up to $17, I think, which may be a 45% increase in price. The value was extremely poor; the flavor was hugely disappointing.

We have been to Peter Lowell’s a couple of times and they never disappoint! The food is absolutely delicious! We tend to order a bunch of items and pass it around family style because everyone wants to try everything. We like to sit in the courtyard because we have two little girls and it can be more appropriate to have them outside, the restaurant itself is pretty small. Even with my kiddos, patrons and employees are so nice and don’t ever lose patience.

Busy night- Valentine’s Day. Open table reservation. The only available seats were at a communal table. Not great for romantic night. Food great. Server must have forgotten to put in our order, so waited over 40 minutes for food.

if you are trying to rebrand you need to improve the service.
the waitstaff was great but it took 45 minutes from when we ordered to get our food. and the place was not crowded.
I think Lowell needs to be there a lot more. Or get new management.
also, the lack of gluten free options sucks.

Our waitress Maggie was wonderful! We were there on Dec 30 and sat in the heated room “outside” but we were all very warm. The food was delicious and they put candles on the dessert for our friend’s birthday.

A mixed experience. We were a party of 6 who were quite late for a reservation at lunchtime. We called to let them know we'd be late; they didn't even thank me for the call. All of our servers were quite sullen. Food quality was mixed; there were some great items and some mediocre items. The floorless chocolate cake was terrific.

Food is quite tasty and service is very good. Good selection of beer and wine. A couple shared salads, a soup, and a few entrees. We knew about the automatic 20% service charge, but were still a bit surprised by the $190 tab for four.

I've been to Peter Lowell's for lunch several times before but I guess never on a Sat. It's always been one of my favorites so I was looking forward to lunch. I was very disappointed. They were only serving from their "brunch" menu so only breakfast food available. It's fine if a restaurant wants to offer brunch on the weekends, but please provide your regular lunch menu as an option as well. It's ironic that I cancelled my reservation for Pullman's Kitchen when I read they only served brunch and no lunch (someone complaining on open table). Then I find out that Peter Lowell's had the same issue. And the food was very average - just your basic bacon and potatoes - nothing special - and the minestrone soup was bland and tasteless (ok, the flourless chocolate cake did make the meal). Again, please provide your excellent lunch menu as an option on weekends as well! Thank you.

The hostess attempted to seat me on the unattractive patio when it was 100+ degrees outside, and five degrees hotter than that on the patio. When I objected, the person at the front desk explained that the situation was my fault as I had failed to specify indoors when I made my reservation. This issue was suddenly resolved after I expressed my very deep disappointment and suggested to my party that we should leave.

When the food came, my marrow bones were presented to me raw and cold. I sent them back, and they were brought back slightly less raw. Raw may be fashionable in other dishes, but it is not what makes marrow bones delicious.

The owner and the host have attitudes making it clear that they are pretty special. Do with that information what you will. Servers have been pleasant. Between the attitude of the owner and the person at the door, and the iffy food, my previous enthusiasm for this restaurant has cooled. I'll return, eventually, maybe, but there are much more reliable and welcoming choices in Sebastopol.

Hand-made food using local ingredients. A small wine list of well-chosen wines, most of them local, many organic. Most dishes range from good to very good. Nice soups, excellent list of starters, and generally a couple of mains. Casual. Menu changes regularly.

Always a treat! We drive from East Bay to have dinner at Peter Lowell's because it is so authentic and excellent, without being stuffy. Lowell is always so hospitable and the staff is warm and attentive. We choose to come here for special occasions because we haven't found anything in the East Bay that comes close to the standards at Peter Lowell's!

Peter Lowell's offered a menu that foodies would appreciate
but the restaurant was laid back not pretentious.

we went there on a Sunday evening and I'm glad I booked it as the place was quite busy and finding a table could have been challenging.
Food is excellent and the menu is offering good options, and somehow with innovative recipes.
Casual style. I did not like too much the "patio" side where we've been seated but the place is small so that many options.

This place has a serious attitude problem. This was my second visit and confirmed my first impression: they treat you as if you're fortunate to dine with them. Unfriendly, condescending service people. If you like to be treated as a valued guest--go elsewhere and spend your hard earned dough.

For lunch, we ordered two salads and 2 sandwiches. We waited nearly 45 minutes for our food. The place was not crowded. Server was not attentive. No explanation or apology from the server for the lengthy wait. We sat in the atrium. Pleasant enough except when the restaurant took a delivery. The carrier had no other option but had to repeatedly roll his noisy trolley through the atrium dining room. Food was fine. But not good enough to justify all these other problems.

My son and I went to Peter Lowell's for a Fathers Day dinner together. I was a bit surprised that I had made a reservation in advance, but the seats they assigned us were at the bar. Being in the hospitality business, I understand that empty tables now, actually implies a good room management system so I understand. Given the day you would have thought that staff would have put two and two together, but enough of that. Despite my initial disappointment the server and the food were deserving of praise. I had heard good things about this restaurant and now I have first hand experience that agrees - Peter Lowell is a great place. I will return.
