The location, atmosphere, and food are very good. Nice bar area and very "cozy" inside. The menu could use some more variety but the food was very good. I had the scallops which were cooked perfectly (on the light side).

We brought our young kids who do well in restaurants but there are not many choices for the kids (pasta is about all).

Location is great - adjacent to the village.

We booked in advance as Petra's is very good and reservations are a must.

We were warmly greeted at the door by Robert who is one of the owners who is one of the nicest people you could meet. He was very attentive and appreciative given that it is not easy to book a table at Petra's.

The menu is not huge but there were some very interesting dishes. I chose a Torchio Pasta with a Celerac Mornay sauce that was outstanding. This chef really understands the blending of flavors and how they work together. It is one of the better pastas I have ever had.

The waitress had a good knowledge of wines was able to help us select a very good Pinot Noir at a reasonable price. The wine list is very good with many of the best wine regions represented.

We had salads to start and they were tasty. I ordered the Mussels as an appetizer and was not particulary pleased with them. I should know better to order something that exotic in Mammoth.

Deserts were good and seemed to be reasonably priced.

On the downside, the restaurant was packed and is quite noisy.

If you like good food and wine, this is your place in Mammoth. Don't forget reservations!

We had a very large party and everyone was pleased with their meals, but less than happy about the service, which came with a heavy dose of "attitude." There are very few "foodie" options in Mammoth and this appears to be one of the better ones. They have a spectacular wine list also. Since I've only eaten there once, I can't say whether the pompous attitude was standard or a one-off experience. We will definitely give it another try. But if we come away with the same feeling the second time, that will probably be enough not to come back for a third dose of being made to feel that you are "lucky" to be allowed to dine there.

This is one of the best restaurants in Mammoth. It's across from the Village and has a wide range of delicious dishes and good selection of wines.
