Nestled in the historic Great Petaluma Mill, the Wild Goat Bistro offers a casual dining experience in a rustic and inviting atmosphere. The charming space reflects a European style bistro with intimate dining tables, a reclaimed copper-top counter which has a birds-eye view of the open kitchen. There is additional seating available at a community farm table for larger gatherings. The Wild Goat Bistro offers up a menu of honest food that uses local fresh organic ingredients in a variety of culinary traditions. From their specialty Neopolitan style 10" pizzas, to innovative salads, to scrumptious main dishes, to sharable small plates - it is a seasonally changing menu that has something for everyone anytime of the day. Special attention is given to making nearly the entire menu gluten-free - even the amazing home-made desserts. Their carefully curated wine list includes wines from hand crafted, small production local vitners as well as wines of interest from around the world.

    Wild Goat Bistro has long been one of my favorite Petaluma restaurants. It has changed hands recently, which hasn't hurt it in the least. The salads are creative and delicious (also big!), I love their pizza (Into the Woods features exceptional mushrooms and is so flavorful), and the polenta pesto fries are wonderful. They have numerous seating options, both inside and outside, which is especially nice in the pandemic era.

    Come and eat here! Relax and enjoy your dining experience with friends and family or even by yourself you won’t be disappointed. The food was delicious, the wait staff was accommodating and welcoming and the prices are fair for the amount of food that you get. I have no complaints. And, don’t leave without trying the desserts the Italian lemon cake is a must have! Light and airy and moist. Simply and delightfully delicious. I enjoyed every bite.😋

    Usually a great experience but service has really been dismal recently. Our waitress got many things wrong with our order. Food seemed just meh. I think they just get too busy and they're very understaffed.

    The service was terrible. The server never came to check on us until after we had our plates cleared and were offered dessert by someone else. Other staff came to take care of us. I would only go back for the food. We waited an hour for our meal, but I would still go back. It was that good.

    Wait staff was very pleasant. The food has gone downhill. My wife's salad, was bagged lettuce, a couple of garbonzos and some previously frozen chicken strips which were extra. The adult grilled cheese had so much butter on the crust, that it needed two napkins to keep wiping hands while eating. One side was upside down so it ended eating with a fork, not as a sandwich. Our friends from Marin were very disappointed and kept asking if this was the same place that had gotten good reviews in the past. A "side salad" consists of a handful on bag lettuce to the side of a burger or a sandwich, not a side salad which one would expect for a restaurant charging premium prices for ordinary food. There are better choices in Petaluma, or Marin and Sonoma counties.

    After looking at the menu online we were excited to have our date night here. Since I am a vegetarian, I am limited to what I can order. Sadly when we arrived and looked over the menu BOTH items I was going to order were not on their menu. I highly encourage you to keep the online menu up to date as we almost walked out due to this. But I was able to compromise and find a few tasty items and dinner was delicious.

    I ordered the chicken pesto sandwich without bread and the chicken was very tough and hard to chew, overcooked. And my friend had a hamburger on gluten-free bread and she couldn’t get her mouth around it, so she decided to cut it, but the bread was extremely tough to cut. Also, it is served on paper so the paper got wet and tore and she was eating paper.

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in Petaluma. The food is consistently good and there is a cozy atmosphere. We started out at an outside table but there were no heat lamps and the wait staff left us waiting for almost 20 minutes. Moving inside meant better service.

    Recipes have changed with new ownership. The cast iron crab dip uses corn kernels as filler and a lower quality cheese. Bacon on the burger was bacon “bits”…surviving in 2022 I guess, but no longer a top pick.

    Restaurant was out of the two most seasonal dishes: caprese salad (at the height of tomato season) and the special gazpacho. Fish tacos tasted odd, but sauces were good. "Off the bone" pork riblets were a bit bland. Mushroom soup was good. Would not rush back.

    Wild Goat Bistro is an excellent place to meet up with friends, eat a healthy delicious meal that’s cooked to perfection, beautifully arranged, and served by waiters and waitresses who are cheerful and helpful. I especially like that WGB continues outdoor dining. The ambience and noise level are festive but not too loud to enjoy an intimate conversation.
