I have gone to Petra an immeasurable amount of times since their opening, and ever since the food and ambiance has been more than welcoming and overall fantastic. All of the positive aspects of this place more than outweigh the few negatives, this place is overall an amazing place to enjoy a great Greek meal.

While staying at the fabulous Roxbury, we ventured up the mountain a bit on a windy, dark, narrow "road" and searched for the restaurant. Not well lit or marked, but the building is warm and welcoming inside. The menu was different than what is posted online and much more limited. In addition to menu deletions, we were informed that there... More

Petra Taverna is the current name for a restaurant that formerly was called Petra Estiatoria. The restaurant, according to our waitress, has changed ownership twice in 2014. Based on the reviews of other diners, I expected some very good Greek/Mediterranean food, but what we got was simply okay and not comparable to similar restaurants I have eaten in elsewhere. The...

Going inside we were greeted by a welcoming staff and an ambiance that was both cozy yet elegant . The best was still to come... More

A consummate dinner experience. The surroundings were beautiful, the service to our party of 12 superb and the food, from the beginning offering to the desserts and coffee of a very extensive menu, was deliciously prepared and artfully presented. It was an eating pleasure that demands a return.

Our party of eight was seated outdoors under umbrellas on a bright, sunny day. The food and service were very good. We liked the large salads (share them; they're made for two people!), chicken souvlaki, hamburger, dolmas, pasta, and variety of dips and spreads. We got lost looking for this out of the way place, so be careful. When you... More

What a wonderful surprise! The shrimp appetizer had the most delicious marinara and the veggie (w/portobello mushrooms instead of ground beef) was perfect. The setting is so lovely too!

Wonderful food and service in a lovely stone building. Nestled in the surrounding woodlands, it over looks a lake in one direction and a golf course in the other. It's just terrific to have a restaurant of this quality in Roxbury. As two women couples, we were able to linger over dinner as we quietly celebrated a birthday. Petra does... More

The best Greek food we have ever had! The beet salad and the stuffed grape leaves were out of this world. We had traditional Greek food. The fresh fish looked great, but was out of our price range. At the time of our visit Petra's did not have their liquor license, you can bring your own wine and they will... More

This is the best restaurant in the area. We've been here twice so far and will return. From the moment you walk in it's a delight. Every course is special. The appetizers are varied and delicious. The main courses are plentiful and properly done. Medium rare lamb chops were perfect. The moussaka is the best I've had. Even the sides... More
