We actually just discovered this restaurant last year but it's quickly become our favorite restaurant in Mammoth. The food is amazing: great appetizers like spaetzle, tuna, and baked Brie and great entrees like steak, pork, and chicken. Service is always great with a friendly and helpful hostess. Having it's own parking lot is a bonus

Nice place but food average. Apparently not bad for mammoth. Chicken dish was average. I basic salad that stated walnuts, etc. Salad was lettuce and dressing, a total waste of money.

I go to Mammoth about 5-7x/year now and make sure that I have my reservation at Petra's booked in advance every time. Every item on the menu I have had has been excellent, and I am pretty sure I have had them all at this point. The wine selection is wonderful, the wine director Mitch is the best!

We like Petra's enough to have spent multiple Thanksgiving dinners with them. Warm and cozy, consistently good service and a robust wine list... We come back every year.

Everything is great here. The food is gourmet without being pretentious. They have a great selection of wine. Their small plates are great too.

We had very nice dinner here during our stay in Mammoth. I had the salmon and the Mr. had the pork medallions, which he said were excellent. I have had better salmon before, but this was good, maybe just cooked a little longer than what I prefer. The wine was good, the service was excellent, and as we were there... More

Upon checking into some good dining alternative's Petra's seemed to have an excellent reputation and so we decided to give it a try. Just here for two weeks we learned that Petra's was closing in three days for the 'shoulder season' as it's called in these parts so w made reservations and got right in. 'we found a very cozy...

I've enjoyed Petras for years, sometimes dining here 5 out or 7 nights in Mammoth Lakes, and was last here twice on trip in the summer of 2014. I was back in Mammoth for 5 nights last week, and ate 3 times at Petras. I sat at the bar, and enjoyed excellent service, great food, and a very good selection... More
