Wonderful dinner at this restaurant. Outstanding service and food. Chef here is a cut above the rest. Family member works in the kitchen and does the desserts. Don't miss them. Will eat here every time we return. Have been to Mammoth many times over the years, in fact we visit almost every summer. Have had many meals and for quality... More

We had been on a road trip and staying at the Westin hotel and we headed down to grab some food and thank God we stumbled on this place as the food was great and the service was even better! Can't remember the cocktail I ordered but remember I ordered two and had a lovely salad with some fries. We... More

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

This little restaurant has an incredible wine menu and very good prices. The ambience is quite romantic. We enjoyed our dining very much and will definitely return if we come back to Mammoth Lakes.

We have eaten at the top three Trip Advisor rated restaurants and none of them come close in quality to Petra's. We both had a pork tenderloin wrapped in Seranno ham accompanIed by an excellent, house-made sauerkraut, French-style green beans and fingerling potatoes. Terrific. Plus there is an exhaustive wine list and wines by the glass at reasonable prices. The... More

We saw this restaurant recommended in the Los Angeles Times and, since it was within walking distance of our condo, we gave it a try. A casual wood paneled room with a relaxed vibe and very good food. It was not busy on a week day in summer so we were able to just walk in. We shared a nice... More

We made reservations based on TA recommendations and were absolutely delighted in this choice for a dinner. When we got there, happy hour was still in effect so we made a meal of the specially priced small plates. Our server recommended a few and they were wonderful! Must try the olive plate, the sauteed mushrooms, the dinner salad and whatever... More

We always celebrate our end of backpack hike with a meal at Petras. The wine list is great, friendly service, and the food is always very tasty from appitizers to dessert.

Eclectic menu; some would call it fusion. Very good, but pricey. Signage indicates that a German beer cellar, owned by the same person, operates in the basement, but there was no way to be served drinks from there. Quizzing the waitress yielded no information that made it sound as if anything was authentically German about the Cellar. Didn't try it... More

We ate here once during our stay in Mammoth, it was recommended, we were not disappointed, the food was excellent and the wine list extensive, the service first class. All in all a great night out.
