“excellent Greek restaurant in a great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have been to petros on a number of occasions and always find it to be a great choice. The food is authentic, well prepared and served by a knowledgeable and helpful wait staff. The menu is really extensive. We have had meat, fish and fowl here and found them all to be good. The salmon is excellent, as is the sea bass and tuna. The lamb is quite authentic. The assortment of dips makes a great appetizer and the arugula salad a favorite. We have had wine and beer from Greece to add to the dining atmosphere.

“Not delicious food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

They put the same herbs on pita on chicken dishes and on dips. They heard something about herbs , but it doesn't mean that they have to put it in every dish .

“A Greek night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 via mobile

I so want to like this place. I love the setting and the location in MB. Great people watching and always a cool vibe.

The problem is the food. Maybe it's me, but I've never really had anything that knocks me out or that I want to come back for.

Tonight I had the lemon soup (way to overpowered with lemon for me) and the meatballs. Ok, not great. My wife had the Petros salad with shrimp and liked it.

Service is spotty all the times I've been here and I so want it to be good. Wine list is interesting with Greek wines and I think they should do tasters so you can try other types. Mine was not worth the $13 a glass price, but I wanted to try it.

Overall, great location, cool vibe and less than stellar food.

“Fantastic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This was the best dining experience of our 4 day July long weekend to Manhattan beach. The service was great, the decor spectacular, but most importantly the food was outstanding. The grilled calamari/octopus appetizer was a particular standout. A must stop on a vist to Manhattan beach.
