Sat outside on a warm Petaluma night by the river at Graffiti. The food was good, the service not so much and the menu lied to me. My wife had the Tapa Mushroom ravioli with a beurre blanc sauce and said they were good. I had a Marinated Black Fig Salad with Mixed Baby Greens tossed with Marinated Black Mission... More

Went here by chance when we were exploring downtown Petaluma and I loved it. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and I would definitely recommend you visit to see for yourself.

Went for dinner with our dog. It was cold and windy outside so they arranged for an isolated table in the bar area. Very good selection of wines and beers. Duck confit was good but could have used a crispier skin. Food was generally good but not great.

I have been here twice... As a foody who travels with friends and family to hopefully enjoy some of foods with greatest taste... This place should not be considered in the realm of "fine dining". I ordered some oysters in the half shell... Those were very tasty and the presentation was nice... Then followed it up with a lobster main... More

Not sure what happened but have been to Graffiti twice in the past 3 weeks and both times were just "meh". Menu wasn't very interesting. Staff seemed disinterested. Food was ok. Probably not going back for a while with so many other great choices in town. :-(

Happened upon this place during the week while the Farmer's Market was going on outside. This is a lovely gem tucked at the end of the street. Wonderful small plates that are creative and tasty. Enjoyed spring rolls, scallops and fresh fish. The service was attentive and helpful!

We went here for our anniversary, and had a wonderful meal. I had grilled shrimp and scallops, and it was cooked perfect. My husband had the filet mignon, and it too, was cooked perfect. Our waitress was wonderful, and knew the menu, she had some great suggestions, and was attentive during the entire meal.

This place has so much potential...the spot on the river and the overall ambiance. It hurts me to write this, but the last few times I've been here the service, especially the bartender in the evenings, has been terrible. I don't write negative reviews very often as I give a place more than once chance. However, this is the third... More

When the weather is nice we love the outdoor seating with views of the river and the pedestrian walkway along the riverside. You can get a table next to the perimeter demi-fence and pet the pooches as they go by. The quality of the food here is uncompromising. The service is great, so is the food and the ambiance is...

While wandering in downtown petaluma we found this charming restaurant on the river. The decor was appealing with lots of windows (who wants a cave on a bright and sunny day,not me). The tapas were delightful and sizable. The service was beyond compare The only small negative was that the calimari was slightly salty for my taste..
