Wonderful Bistro and Wine Bar

Stopped by for a little dinner a few weeks ago and what a wonderful treat. The food is excellent with the service to match. My wife and I had the Charcuterie Board, Cheese Plate, the Smoked Salmon Trio, and a nice bottle of French - yes I said it - French red wine. the meal was amazing and the... read more

The food was terrific. Our waitress was Karis and she was very attentive. Atmosphere was good too. One negative was the room temperature...it could have been cooler.

Family of 4 with 2 teenage boys. Service was good and the food one of the best in Mammoth. The boys (and I) really like the Duck Confit. Large wine list and cocktail selection.

Petra Bistro and Wine Bar was just what I needed after a day of hiking 15.5 miles in the John Muir wilderness. The wait staff were friendly and welcoming. The ambience subdued and the menu both creative and varied. I also appreciate that they offer half and full glasses of wine. I started with the jalepeño gazpacho soup. Our waitress... More

This is Mammoth, not The Riviera, Malibu, New York or Beverly Hills. I find some of the other reviews here surprising when the authors compare their experience here with world class establishments they are apparently well acquainted with elsewhere. The steak we had was excellent, of a good size, and the appetizers we're surprisingly good. The decor of the restaurant... More

Had dinner after a day of skiing. 6 people in our party which probably did not help the situation. The atmosphere was nice and warm and the bartender was very friendly. In general most of the plates of food were done well. They had ran out of several items after the order was taken which was unfortunate. My main complaint... More

We've eaten dinner here several times, and we've always enjoyed the food and wine. I really like how you can order a half glass of wine in addition to full glasses and bottles. If you can get a seat at the bar before dinner, it's a really nice ambiance. On our recent visit I had Coq au vin for dinner... More

Very friendly service and nice food with a reasonable wine list. Went twice during our visit to Mammoth because they were very welcoming and the food was good. Even though it was during their slower time, still made an effort with service -attentive but not intrusive. Really enjoyed it both times.
