We all enjoyed the evening experience. 5 of us, including two kids, found something of interest to eat and drink. No easy matter with their small plates menu. Wine by the glass selections were OK and by the bottle very good. If you buy wine to go they provide a 30% discount. Value for some selections were very good. You... More

Everything we ordered was delicious and nicely presented. It did take a long time to receive our meals but was worth the wait. The only complaint we had was that the seating is odd. It seemed like we could either sit on very low chairs or bar stools inside.

My friend and I enjoyed two glasses of Chardonnay and the cheese plate, which is the happy hour special. The cheese plate was excellent and we enjoyed the wine too.

The wine selection at Petra is great, and the food menu, though it looks smallish, is quiet good, even with kids! My kids like the grilled cheese and tomato soup, the lamb meatballs, and the sweet potato fries. They are picky eaters, and I was delighted to find a place with adult and kid food! The chicken is very good,... More

My 3 year old loved the tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich and I enjoyed the portobello sandwich with salad and wine.

If you want action, don't go here to eat. This is a chill environment w/really nice music and terrific personal service. The food portions are not big, but everything was delicious and the wines are top notch. Overall, a perfect way to neutralize the crazy lines everywhere at North Star.

Wonderful atmosphere and really nice wines! Glad we stopped! Variety of wines was broad, they had a wine maker one night.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The service was 'casual', but friendly and our server was knowledgeable about the items on the menu and assisted in our selection. The quality and preparation of our entrees was good. The portions were just right although some may find them small in this age of supersized meals.

Friendly service and a Mediterranean-inspired menu. This is advertised by Northstar as tapas, but it isn't a tapas restaurant. There are appetizers, entrees, etc. And, they have an amazing selection of wine.
