Anniversary (San Francisco)

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Seared. The food was unbelievable....the calamari melted in your mouth, the filet mignon was delicious, and the vegetables with the flat iron steak were so good we would consider being vegetarians!

Seared was a new find for us, and we were delighted! The service was superb, and the food varied from good appetizer to an excellent scallops dish with the filet mignon being very good. We will be back, and very soon!

The new owners have done some remodeling turning the place into an echo chamber. Good luck on trying to whisper something to your beloved across the table. Clatter and even noise from the street made it a place where I couldn't wait to get the entree so I could get out of there. The food is very tasty and very expensive for me. I was hoping for more. There are so few places to eat of quality in town that are quiet and consistently good food.

Love this place and their great prime rib and oysters. The salads and wine list were also good. I would return.

Four meals. Three were the flat iron steak which had good flavor but was too tough. I had wild caught king salmon which was perfectly prepared but then ruined by the addition of smoked bacon. The flavors fought with, rather than complemented, each other. Extraordinarily high noise level made it hard to converse.

I had the Apple a Day Salad, mushrooms and the Ribeye. Everything was amazing and although I left super crushed full, I loved every bit.

Seared is our go to spot in Petaluma, any time we have a special occasion we want to celebrate, we go to Seared. You won't be disappointed. Portions are good, the food is excellent - get the coffee & donut dessert.

We took my in-laws for their 55th wedding Anniversary. We were 5 minutes late and yet our table was ready. We sat down and Michael came over and was just a hit with the table. He was their when you needed him and yet not over doing it. We have not had service like this in a long time. We took our time and had a great meal from the Lamb Chops, to the King Cut of Prime Rib and the Fish Specials. but more important then that we had OUTSTANDING SERVICE. Old school. From the front desk till the time we left the staff was just outstanding. We will be back I still have a few more items on the menu I want to try.

Great food for a fair price. Nice size meals that are excellently prepared. The food choices are excellent. Very classy place. Could improve a little on the local Wine list.

First we were 1/2 hr. late due to traffic and Ken, was so kind to hold our table for us! The food was a wonderful find! My hanger steak was out of this world! tender and the sauce was to die for! My son had the gnocchi and it was delicious also. My husband enjoyed his rib eye but felt it was a little too "grisly" for his taste. The service was outstanding! We also tried the mac& cheese and it was creamy and delicious as well as the sauted mushrooms.
We will be back!

This was our second visit and we took what we learned and applied it on this visit. During our first visit, we listened to our stomachs and over ordered. The food was superb on that visit and again on this visit. The brussel sprouts are not to be missed. The beef is tender and flavorful. The wine list is fine and the range and depth of the menu means that there is something there for everyone. Our server was a little over the top on this visit which was OK. We'll be back for sure... A great addition to the wonderful Petaluma food scene.

My husband and I went to Seared to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary. He was craving a steak, and our friend recommended Seared as the best steak in town "no question." We rarely get out, so this was a real treat, and it didn't disappoint. My filet with blue cheese butter and mashed potatoes was to die for. For an appetizer, two cocktails, two entrees, a side, and two desserts plus tip, we spent $140. Not an inexpensive meal, but worth it for a special occasion.
