Food and service was very good and the bar was full. The only sucky part was a drunk guy who was very loud. The server offered to move us when another table was available but the restaurant was so full we had to sit and listen to him. Other than that, it was a good experience and I would go... More

My wife and I eat there about 8 times per year, twice in the last two weeks. It's our favorite fine dining restaurant in Mammoth since Skadi closed. I don't understand why more good restaurants don't offer half glasses of wine. We normally each order 3 half-glasses and have the staff pick depending on our dinner choices. They've been spot...

At first glance, the menu seems pricey and the atmosphere isn't extravagent; we ended up eating on a couch, yes a couch, because all the other seats had been reserved. The food is unbelievable though. Juicy mussels, tender chicken, delicious soup, every item was amazing. The food is worth the price.

Dinner on Sunday night in July did not require a reservation. Food was very good. They did not have the duck I ordered and were honest that the chef felt that the duck they had was not going to be adequate. Large wine list. Service was informal and attentive.

We went in with a large group on this past Saturday night. I'd eaten at Petras twice before, but always solo at the bar. The meal was wonderful - duck confit app a true highlight of the first course, as well as the special goat cheese stuffed peppers. For an my entree I selected the cod special, which was very... More

i am not sure why when i am in mammoth and going out, i just do not go out here every night. for my palate, this is the best restaurant that i have been to in mammoth. the caprese salad had flavorful tomatoes, lovely composition, reasonable mozzarella, and a nice balsamic reduction. i have certainly had better duck confits; while...

This place was recommended by several locals as being their favorite restaurant in town. Unfortunately, we didn't have a great experience. First, we got seated in a back room area with no windows. Very dark and nothing to look at but nearly blank walls. The server was friendly and informative, but the food was so-so. The mushroom soup looked like... More

This may be the best restaurant for multiple tasty fish selections in Mammoth. They also have great choices for other tastes as well. The wine list, both by glass and bottle, is good. Prices are moderately high (roughly the $20 to $30 range per dinner entree) but worth it. (My higher rated choices are more expensive; including Restaurant at Convict... More

I have no idea how this restaurant garnered 4 stars. From the WARM "fresh" oysters, to the ammonia flavored scallops and the bolognese that tasted like it was from Olive Garden, this place should be ashamed to call themselves a bistro. And oh, I thought a 'wine bar' meant you could actually taste wines beforehand but our waiter was distressed... More
