“Favorite!”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

I always fit Petra into my schedule whenever I'm in Tahoe. This wine bar is an essential stop. The small plates are excellent and can be paired with wine or beer. If you are with a small child, the milk and cookies is a must-get.

“Wonderful food and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

Petra is located away from the ice/roller rink so I think that some people might miss it. I sat outside and enjoyed the mountain air and the perfect weather while dining on crab & risotto cakes and a sumptuous Greek salad. I will definitely dine there again when in Northstar.

“European flavor”

We liked the outside patio area and the live music. The service great - very friendly and the food was delicous as was all of the wine!

“Cute spot with great wine”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

We were at Petra a couple weeks before the start of the summer season so menu was limited and we were the only people in the place. Still, we enjoyed the atmosphere- comfortable and great, great music. The wine marinated olives, served warm, were excellent, as were the meats and cheeses. Wines by the glass were great and we were impressed by the small but well curated retail selection.
