another huge family dinner at Petaluma and we were not disappointed...the fried olives are so yummy, the service was still good and best of all, the prices are so reasonable by nyc standards! we enjoyed the food, the large table in the back and the fact that it did not break the bank...

the pizza is still nice, but the rest of the food is just average, nothing great about it, nice open space, but that's about it.

We live in the neighborhood, and walking home after a movie yesterday, we decided to stop in and have lunch. We have been to Petaluma so many times in the past, but hadn't been there in awhile, so choosing it was an easy decision to make. But never again!

Food was terrible. Imagine going to a retaurant and paying $20 for a seafood salad with Italian salad dressing, only to consume what BOTH my wife and I were certain was a Wishbone type of dressing i.e-not made in the kitchen from fresh ingredients.

The seafood looked "wilted", and had that aweful "regrigerator taste".

Service was "fair".

We had lunch here on Easter Sunday and ordered from the Easter Menu. It was overpriced, and my "rack" of lamb was only 3 chops, and they were overlooked. The risotto was overly salty.

Maybe it was because of the day, but the service was slow as well. But the staff were very nice.

It is convenient to where we were staying, but I wouldn't rush back.

Don't ask for well done chicken. You'll get shoe leather. This overstated and overpriced restaurant was a huge disappointment. The salads were ok but way too expensive. The chicken had the surprising combination of being lukewarm but overlooked and it came naked of the promised potatoes. The waiter did bring a plate after he was asked.
Overall, for $100 (only 1 had wine), I felt ripped off and hungry. I ate popcorn after I left to fill up.
