The restaurant is located in a courtyard off the main drag, which made it a little quieter (it was Halloween), good when I had been travelling all day. Outside seating was nice, wait staff was very friendly, even to costumed children who came in. Food was terrific, and it had a bar that clearly drew some of the young professionals... More

This was my first visit to this eatery. It was highly recommended, so I took a large group of visitors there. The location is great (just a block from the beach), although difficult to get to if one is not staying in the area. The 405 freeway is tricky during dinner hours. The menu is varied. The eggplant dip was... More

Why is it that we are all sitting indoors in the beach cities instead of enjoying the sunshine while we dine outside? Oh, legislation, that's why. Not at Petros! You can enjoy lovely, creative food and a beautiful wine list while sitting out on the patio. The only problem for Petros is that it's so enjoyable we don't even want... More

I couldn't get in on the weekend but had a lovely seat at the bar for dinner on Sunday night. Big menu and good drinks.

We were two times within few days in this restaurant during our holiday, once at lunch after the beach and the second time for dinner. The menu is so large that we decided to share various different meals, without repeating on the second visit what we had already tasted in order to try more meals. Both times we were delighted...

A native Greek chef creates a California-Greek version of his native island favorites. The calamari with almonds and lemon wheels makes the dish divine. The spanikopita is light and has just a hint of dill in the filo to give it its unique quality. Mmmmmmmmm.

It's not just the authentic greek food, or the stellar customer service, or the ambiance of Petros, but the overall dining experience is simply top notch at this restaurant. Imagine this: candlelit tables under a tent-like overhang, in the fresh and salty sea air, people sitting in couples as well as large groups, gathering together to sip wine and delight... More

The service and atmosphere was wonderful. Beautiful outdoor seating. The grilled octopus was phenomenal as were the meatballs. The portion sizes are very large for the price. Our server was very informative when we were asking about different items and how much to order. Will definitely return for another amazing meal!!!

We visited this restaurant upon the recommendation of another traveller. We were very pleased. The food was amazing. The ambience was excellent. The menu offers good value for the cost. We were lucky to see the LA Kings wives dining beside us to celebrate the eve of the Stanley Cup finals.

The bar at Petros is small but a good spot for a pre-dinner drink. The bar staff were attentive and on their game on Saturday night. We've been here a couple of times, so knew what the menu had to offer. Hands down the favorite dish here is the Grilled Octopus - delicious and melt in your mouth, paired nicely... More
