A biz associate treated me to lunch at Water St. Bistro. What a jewel in Petaluma. Stephanie the owner makes you feel so at home. The smoked duck and peach salad was wonderful. The Meyer lemon and rosemary bread was so refreshing. Water St. is a repeat for sure on my next trip to Petaluma.

My friend and I happened upon this delightful place on our way to our vacation in Mendocino. We had been on a plane for 6 hours, waited for a rental car for 2 hours, got lost in traffic in San Francisco for 2 hours so we were starving and wanting some good food. Wow! We had the freshest and tastiest... More

We were lured into this cafe while walking in the rain (long sought rain after drought) - we were looking for a place to have brunch and could definitely smell something good from outside. I had potato parsnip soup - delicious! Sandwiches were served with salad. All sweets looked tempting. Many locals were enjoying food and their own time engaging... More

The owner Stephanie has a warm welcome for all her guests and the food consistently delicious! Whether you stop in for a breakfast treat with coffee or a quiche for lunch, you will not be disappointed by the food or the service. WSB is perfectly situated on the Petaluma River where you can enjoy a glass of wine in the... More

friendly service, and relaxed outdoor seating. Sometimes it gets very crowded and the line up to order is a bit congested. I would prefer the bathroom to be in the restaurant and not have to get the key to go down the hall to use the restroom. Nice place to sit outside, enjoy the river, visit with friends and be... More

Well situated off the main road, The Water Street Bistro is worth the stop. It is open for breakfast and lunch as well as Friday night in the summer. The food was made of fresh seasonal ingredients and everything we had was delicious. You can seat outside and have a view on the river.

To elaborate on previous reviews, we enjoyed what we ordered more than our first impressions led us to believe. The crab chowder was alright but it was hard to steal the show from the tasty bread it came with! We had the pork loin and brie sandwich (absolutely tender and juicy, paired with yummy mustard), the smoked duck salad (pitted... More

Was in the search for a salad and some outdoor seating. Used tripadvisor and found this cool spot. Was exactly what I was looking for. Great salads, sandwiches, and soups. They had an extensive daily special list and the breakfast menu looked very promising.

Oh my gosh. This place is the best. I had the best Pastrami Sandwich I have ever had. And the Crab Chowder was a first for me. I have never had a Crab Chowder, and it was certainly the best Chowder I have ever eaten. A wonderful place, I will be back!
