Nice, cozy atmosphere. Good enough menu and food. Service was rather impersonal and did not feel welcoming. I am not looking for my server to be my friend, but we were checked on by three different servers, who had not communicated to eachother, so we ended up feeling rushed at an early Friday night dinner. (Are you finished with that?... More

The owners have changed their focus for this restaurant. They now are serving "comfort food" for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Same chef, a clever approach... not your ordinary comfort food, be ready for an up-market approach:) Check the hours and days of the week they are open as this may be changing as they find their way in this new...

simple and rustic... empty tables during dinner time should of been my first hint. The food and service was good, but I think I can cook some chicken and beans for less than what they charge.

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant to celebrate our anniversary and had read positive reviews about Petite Syrah, so he made a reservation. It was a Tuesday night on the later side (we had just gotten into town a few hours prior) so I guess we didn't need the reservation. When we arrived there was only one... More

Food was very good here. However, our server had an attitude that was a turn off. The bus person however made up for it and was very friendly and got us what we needed. Zero menu for kids and tiny portions for adults (and I'm not a huge eater) made this a place we will not return. DIning in the... More

Very good food. Nice wine list. It was quiet the night we went but still enjoyed it. Phenomenal beet salad. Another review says that it is closing and reopening under same ownership. I'm sure it will be just as good.

Middle of September 2012, Petite Syrah will close. After few days it will reopen as "3 square cafe" under the same ownership. Opwn breakfast, lunch and dinner Tuesday to Sunday. I will report after opening.

The food here was some of the best I've ever had in wine country. The service was excellent as well. They made us feel very relaxed and pampered.

Out of Towners looking for dinner spot. Saw the reviews and are do glad we chose this lovely spot. Hanger steak was divine as was spinach salad. Wine chilled just right. Agreed the layout is unusual. Outside of main dining /bar, tables are in the center of enclosed shopping area so our table was by hair salon. So not perfect... More
