Wild Goat Bistro - Petaluma
polenta sautéed w/ pesto / topped w/ grated parmesan / served w/ roasted red pepper sauce
Great food as always. Fast service.
My wife and my birthday are one day apart (so, we are the same age for a day!) And we like to go here for our personal celebration. There food, as always, was fabulous! It's actually very hard to decide what we want. The service is also very friendly and punctual. We sat outside to enjoy the fresh air (it's really great that that have many outdoor options during these difficult times). That did make it a bit noisier than dining indoors (traffic, etc.), but it was still very enjoyable. Their selection of gluten-free options is quite nice.
Our meal was wonderful and the service was amazing. Thank you!
Great service and great food with nice spacing for safety. Lovely evening out!
The food was really just OK. This is the second time we have tried this restaurant and it will be the last. I think there are much better alternatives and while the restaurant has a cute little name I must admit the food was not up to par
We waited 1 hr and 25 minutes for our food! They skipped our order. The waitress did comp our meals, which is good because we were extremely frustrated and hungry. Food was great when we finally got it. First time I’ve had a bad experience there.
Had to wait about 10 minutes to check in, hostess was not at stand. After being seated, had to wait about 10 minutes to get a menu, another 15 minutes to get our iced tea, and then another 45 minutes to get our food. Food was tasty. We had to flag down several people to get our bill paid. Like everywhere else, I guess they're operating with a reduced staff.....
Overall a nice luncheon with family. Would recommend to others. A bit pricey. But portions were generous. We were a party of 4. Service charge may have something to do with COVID. Nice variety of fresh food options for every taste and diet.
Excellent food and service.
Nice place for lunch. Centrally located. Outdoor seating.
Good, dependable, local restaurant with creative salads and sandwiches. Excellent service and relaxing outdoor patio.
The food was outstanding! I knew it would be good but that is an understatement. I brought my 82 yr old dad who is visiting from Boston. He was so impressed he asked to go back again soon before he leaves.
The shrimp in the pasta was the best I’ve ever had. So tender and tasty. Every bite was a delight.
Thank you wild goat! We love you❤️
Stopped by for a late lunch. Waitress was less than pleasant and food was a bit bland and slightly overpriced. Very limited lunch menu.
Our party was seated inside the back room. The ambience was beautiful and we were served quickly and efficiently. Thank you for such a nice experience! The food is always amazing!
Great outdoor seating- excellent service and food!!!
We live south of Petaluma and we were driving home a couple of years ago and googled restaurants in town. We found this gem!
The food is creative and delicious! Bonus is the option of having gluten free breads for burgers and sandwiches. And the rolls for those are fantastic! (Shout out to local bakery “Mama Mel’s”)
Staff is always great!
Salads and appetizers are super special too.
Have been back several times and never disappoints!
The food is extremely overpriced for what you get. I reserved a table inside and we were seated outside. Very disappointing.
So glad WGB made it through COVID so far. They've expanded their space a lot with outdoor seating. We had a delicious meal and the service was great. What more can you ask for.
I had the first salad farmers chop salad and it needed more goat cheese and more oil/fat and more seasoning/pizzazz. It was a boring salad and needs a better dressing. My girlfriend’s salad was also pretty boring for her as well. She also complained that it needed some fats. Yes it was very green and lightly dressed but ultimately both were boring.
wild king salmon was perfectly cooked.
pizza with fig and prosciutto also delicious.
One of our favorites!
Always a good meal at WGB.
Oddly, the server told us that they did not carry bottled water (sparkling or still) even though we have ordered it there before on occasion. Then at the end of our meal we noticed 4 different tables surrounding us had been served bottles of S.Pellegrino. Just a weird observation, unsure why we were denied.
My companion didn't care for her cheese sandwich as it was richer and more oily than she was wanting and Wild Goat didn't charge her for it. My dish was, as always, delicious. This is my main "go to" restaurant in Petaluma. Love them!
One of my favorite restaurants. Great food, good service. But this experience was not a good one. It was a special reunion meal for 5 and we were hoping for a meaningful conversation but the music from the nearby venue was so loud and harsh we could barely hear each other or the waitress. The music was creative, but non-harmonious for sharing a meal. Very disappointing. Next time I will call to find out if there will be music, and maybe avoid weekends. Or maybe the music another time would be mellower.
Our table was on the sidewalk which has a narrow walkway for people passing through with their children and dogs, etc. We like the food and the service.
Very nice waitress. Pizza was delicious!
Another awesome relaxed 2 hour lunch
Relaxing outdoor meal
Always good food. Our friend has celiac and was so impressed with all the gluten free options that were delicious!
Lovely and delicious
We went to The Wild Goat on Friday evening and had a nice time. Although my son’s food was not cooked properly, they managed to bring him back an entirely new meal.
Today, we wanted to bring a big crew back and booked two tables outside. We arrived at the restaurant 30 minutes early and it is empty. We ask nicely about seating and if we can possibly sit together. The hostess could not be more rude if she tried and said she would be unable to accommodate us at all outside. I explained we had a family member just out of the hospital. (She also claimed I did not have a reservation and then realized she was not looking for the correct spelling).
Every restaurant in the nearby area has been nothing but gracious. We ended up moving on to Brewster‘s with a beautiful outside garden, the nicest servers, live music, and fantastic ambiance!
In a town trying to help restaurants come back after Covid, the staff should really learn to be more professional and respectful of patrons!
Had an excellent lunch outside on the sidewalk area. Food never disappoints and service was outstanding.
We sat outside under a tent for lunch. It was very warm the day we went. May have effected my overall opinion. The service was very slow. Don't know if they are understaffed as many places are. The food was good. A lot of choices for vegan/vegetarian folks. A bit pricy for what you receive. AND they have a 4% add-on charge as their expenses have gone up. It's added to the bottom of the tab, rather than just printing new menus. Not a lot of money, but it's the principle...
Arrived to our 8:30 reservation, only to be told the kitchen closes at 8:30. Don’t know how you’re supposed to dine in such a scenario.. we ended up going elsewhere. Will try again sometime, but it was a bit of a let down.
Meatballs were a bit dry, the pasta was a little underwhelming. The cherry blue salad and pork chop special was good. And the lemon cake was good, as always.
Anniversary dinner was great.
The waitress was not very good!!!! Waited over 30. Minutes for our food as everyone around us who had sat down after us got their food.
Have eaten here before. Service was Baaaaad. Food was uninspiring for the price. Overall just did not feel like this was any better than a place half the price...
Excellent outside sidewalk dining for and afternoon shopping gathering of friends.
