A great evening for sitting at a bar, trying wines, (with knowledgeable servers who add to the experience) and short plates OR enjoy fine dining, quiet, wonderful menu, cracking fireplace and candles for ambience.

This is a great choice for date night or with couples. The food was incredibly flavorful and unique. The chef has the "it" touch in terms of coming up with special combinations that you would not believe. The short ribs are out of this world.

We returned to Petras on a recent winter trip to Mammoth and were lucky to have the same great server at our table as we did last year. For the size of the restaurant, it has an extensive wine list and a diverse selection of Mediterranean-inspired food choices. One this visit we were looking to keep it light so ordered... More

I have been to Petras a few times and I think that it is excellent. Not cheap but great food and a good wine list make for excellent value for money. On this occasion I had coq au vin and it had to be just about the best chicken I ever tasted anywhere. I shall return at least once every... More

Party of four including two children. We end up arriving late night to Mammoth Lakes and we had no idea about the quality of this restaurant. We came in, the atmosphere was warm and quiet and they were nice enough to extend the timing for us. Food was delicious. Every aspect of it, presentation, quality of the products and the... More

I would recommend this restaurant as the one place not to miss in Mammoth. Fantastic close knit staff and a comprehensive wine list to beat all. Great place to savor a steak after many days on the PCT or JMT. Awesome!

This is a great restaurant with a cozy yet elegant atmosphere able to make both formal and casual gatherings welcome. Food is high end and so are the prices. Sommeliers are very knowledgeable and the wine selection is fabulous. This is my go to place for special events.
