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.

Love this place- the epitome of cozy, delicious, French inspired mountain dining. And the wine list doesn't suck either! Get the lamb or the steak! And a cheese plate for dessert!

I went here for my birthday with friends. We had wonderful service. All the food was amazing. I had scallops which were delicious, our friends had a pasta dish with veggies and a variety of fish which they loved. My husband had salmon which he enjoyed. So glad we picked this spot. We've been to quite a few restaurants in... More

This restaurant has an intimate setting with the warmth of someone's home. It has the feel of a very private and exclusive find. Everything on the menu is delicious, and the service is impeccable. Located in the Alpenhof Hotel, and is worth searching out even if not staying there.

We visit Petras whenever we go to Mammoth and we love it. Somehow they manage to serve consistently great food year in and year out. On this visit, we enjoyed flash fried Brussels sprouts in sweet chili sauce and thought it was just great. I followed with salmon, and I asked for it to be "cooked through". This usually elicits...
