My wife and I visited Santa Barbara in late February 2014 and ate at Petros our first night. We loved Petros!. We had dinner at 8pm on a Sunday night so the restaurant was fairly empty. We sat in the "outdoor" area around the fountain which was just a very nice setting. Our waiter was fabulous. He was energetic and provided opinions on the dishes we should get. He steered my wife towards the lamb chops and I got the sea bass special. Both were awesome . Our appetizer was Shrimp Saganaki which was awesome!
Overall we had a terrific evening and a fabulous meal. If we come back to Santa Barbara we would definitely eat at Petros again.
