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.
Once again a great dinner!!!!!
Really great food and a lot of interesting choices
Friendly, warm and welcoming service
We sat in the back with heaters. Too cold on the feet! Service was very slow but pleasant servers
I always like my experience at Lowell's. Good food, usually served promptly and consistent service. I especially like that they serve seasonal dishes...something new to enjoy all year round.
Exceptional food and great service. Healthy food with options for vegans
Pizzas and Lasagna were excellent tho a bit pricey. Restaurant is not in center of Sebastopol and parking isn't easy. Enjoyable meal for four of us.
Great experience. Food was great!
Fab, very accommodating, great food, great service. Let's go !
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.
Terrible service, main entree was 1 hour and 40 minutes after sitting down. First wine delivered 30 minutes after sitting down.
Food was 10/10
We went for a special occasion with our neighbors and had a lovely dinner. We enjoyed sharing the community table with a young family with two very well-behaved children. Delicious food with great local ingredients!
We always love having brunch at Lowell's. We haven't yet made it for dinner, but it's on our list. The food and service are consistently great, which is a rare find.
A great neighborhood go to with friends. Foods always fresh and delicious.
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 best ingredients, mixed with a creative spin on Mediterranean fare and, all fresh from local farms, Peter Lowell’s is our go to when we want food better than we can cook at home!
We had a lovely meal with our lovely neighbors here.
The halibut is superb and we hope that Peter Lowell's will always have this! Salads are fresh and tasty! Great caliber of food at a good price. Always a friendly staff.
We live that it's our neighborhood gem!
The hostess attempted to seat me on the unattractive patio when it was 100+ degrees outside, and five degrees hotter 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 food came, my marrow bones were presented to me raw and cold. I sent them back, and they returned slightly less raw. Raw may be fashionable in other dishes, but it is not what makes marrow bones delicious. 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, but there are more reliable 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!
Small seating area inside restaurant and what appears to be outside dining under a covered roof area. Food was locally grown and made. Limited menu. I asked for a chicken dish and they did not have one that evening.
Good food but had this crazy salad which was loaded with some greens similar to frizee which I hate. Wish server had warned us but I'll go back.
Food and atmosphere were excellent! So good and very unique .
The menu was organic, local and fresh. The wines suggested by the server did not dissapoint.
Peter Lowell's offered a menu that foodies would appreciate
but the restaurant was laid back not pretentious.
This dinner was one of the best we had while we visited Sonoma County!
Lovely meal wonderful staff great ethical business
We will be back
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.
just a quick afternoon gettogether for two ,now, farflung friends..enjoyed salads and an unusual and special hard cider....not a busy time for restaurant and service was excellent
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.
Peter Lowell's always impresses me - excellent creative menu options, well presented. Everything tastes great.
We had brunch to celebrate my son's high school graduation. It was delicious as always! If it's still available I recommend the brioche cherry French toast. Not overly sweet. Everything is local and organic. Very friendly waitstaff, nice outdoor seating. Very mellow and relaxing. Good wine too!
We took friends from out of town, and they loved it. Great appetizers, generous pizza portions, very delicious. Wished they had the mushroom pizza though. Fun night!
Very interesting farm to table restaurant. Great menu at good prices. I loved the black cod. Wonderful and knowledgeable wait staff. I will go back.
Peter Lowell's never fails to please me. I love their healthy, seasonal, and local choices. The choices are good for vegetarians (me) but also please the fish and meat eaters I know. I did have to ask three times to have a loud music source over our table to be turned down (each time it was turned down, someone else turned it back up). I am not a fan of energetic music while I am dining and conversing with friends, especially at a lively place like Peter Lowell's. If you sit outdoors on the patio this is not a problem. Quieter, and I will request that in the future. The salads and main courses are very pleasing and tasteful in every sense of the word. Our server was great and we even chatted with folks at the other end of our table about music, guitars, and the local scene. Fun.
