Tucked alongside the river in downtown Petaluma, Graffiti is a terrific northern California dining experience. Handsomely appointed with a pleasant al fresco dining area by the water, it offers a menu teeming with freshness and innovation. The chef invites you to whet your appetite with (or make a meal of) a tempting range of tapas and flatbread pizzettas or go... More

We visit Petaluma frequently and this is a restaurant we can always rely on. Sitting outside is really pleasant but the decor inside is impressive too. The other night I had the artichoke ravioli with a sauce that had just the right amount of citron flavor and I had the Tapa size filet mignon which was perfectly cooked and had... More

Just visited Graffiti during our wine country stop on our 3 week honeymoon in California. Has to be one of the best meals I've ever had. The blackened catfish in a creole sauce was amazing. My wife had the spinach salad with calamari which was (nearly) equally as nice. This, accompanied by local sparkling wine and followed by awesome cocktails,... More

I agree with Alysson F's review, great location, OK food. I do appreciate Graffiti for when I'd like to have a bite and a drink with a friend downtown, but want a bit of up-town vibe. It's also nice if you want to sit outside on a nice day. The bartender is always friendly and provides good service. The food... More

No one greeted us at the door. Stood and waited to be greeted for seating. After seating server ignored us for at least ten minutes. Ordered two glasses of wine and tapas selections. Wine finally came right before the food, delivered by what appeared to be a restaurant manager. He dropped them off at the table without a hello or... More

I have gone to this restaurant several times over the years it has been open and always walk away underwhelmed. It is in a great location and a pretend interior. Menu is fusion and has great potential but somehow every dish I've tried just missed the mark-good in most cases but not exceptional. It's reported to have a great happy... More

My husband and I went to Graffiti for dinner on our anniversary. It was a Sunday evening and not very busy. There was nothing bad about it, but it was rather tasteless. Nicely presented, but for that price I would expect something more flavorful. The interior is nicely appointed and they have an outdoor seating area which would be enjoyable... More

January in California this year is awesome. Yes, we need the rain but the beautiful weather (73 degrees in Petaluma) makes for lovely outdoor seating if you go to Graffiti. I had the tapas: a plate of artichoke filled ravioli and a plate of the best, freshest scallops I've had for many years. My lunch companion enjoyed the Reuben sandwich... More
