Good value meal

Had eaten here before, food is consistent and good value. It's well prepared, portions are generous, service was good, just don't expect a Michelin star experience and you won't go wrong. You're not paying for a Michelin star meal either, so we all ended up happy with our meals. They also have a... read more

We were a group of 12 the day after Thanksgiving. Service was excellent food choices very varied and superb presentation. Lamb chops wonderful. This is our third time and coming from Arizona it was a delight!

Going downhill. Used to be the food was iffy but great bar and awesome outdoor seating. Recent experiences suggest that the food is slipping (the few reliable items on the menu like the satay aren't memorable anymore). Also the bar is pretty lousy now. Kamikaze straight up made with Rose's Line? An expensive one? No thanks. Plus even basic stuff... More

When Graffiti first came to town I was excited. I have tried it several times. I find the food good but a little pricey for me. Nice bar and wonderful patio dining area. It's right on the River and sometimes they have Jazz on Fridays in the summer. It's a great place to take a date because it has a... More

Fun, lively restaurant located on the Petaluma River waterfront in downtown Petaluma. Great service, excellent vegetarian and ominivore salads, tapas, entrees and desserts. Moderately priced; parking in Petaluma can be iffy, plan ahead to arrive early.

We had a great dinner at Graffiti in Sept 2015. They have a good, comprehensive menu, and nice waiting staff. We ate out on the terrace, which is lovely when the weather is nice. Good choice if you're in Petaluma!

A fabulous menu!!! A whole range of high end, foodie recipes, but also a tapas, tasting menu. One of the best meals I've had in ages. That said, no one was under 60 besides our family. And it's pricy. The tab for 3 people with wine and dessert was $150. However, I'd gladly go back. The food was great.

It is a very nice venue, the indoor section is open and seating not cramped. Have had a couple dinners there, the recent one a dish of clams in a tasty sauce. It was a tapa but for me a full meal with a salad. My friends had a Chinese chicken salad which she liked and my other dining companion... More

My wife and I stopped here for an impromptu dinner outing. She enjoyed a delicious marinated black fig salad with duck confit while I enjoyed one of the best prime rib dinners ever! The waiter, Ernie O., was attentive and very efficient. He has a great personality too. A cool breeze came up so we decided to eat inside instead... More

We were at Graffiti to enjoy the awesome music of Peter Welker and band. They play every Friday night 6 to 8PM in the patio. The food is really good and so is the service. A bit pricey if you are watching your pennies. Had a great time.
