Walked from our parking spot to eat here before attending the 5th Ave Theater. Were seated relatively quickly, even though we had no reservations on a Saturday night (and had we made them, since we were running late, we wouldn't have arrived soon enough). Well worth it. Cathy saw on another review site that their baba ghanoush was to die for, but didn't tell me that until after I had ordered it. It was true! We had Mediterranean prawns and Ouzi. Both were excellent, as was the dressing for the house salad. We were running short on time, and almost skipped dessert, but the cashew baklava was so good that taking a cab back was worth it.
Our server Joseph was excellent - there when you needed him, but only then.

Looking for a warm, welcoming bistro for lunch only a few blocks from Seattle Center? We found Petra yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed our reasonably priced and delicious choices for a delightful luncheon. The wait time was very brief, and the wait service was excellent. From some hot lentil soups, delicious salads, and tasty calamari, there were choices for every taste. The baklava dessert was a nice finish to our post-Christmas meals.

Some of the best Mediterranean food I've had. Everything we tried was tasted great. I recommend the lemon garlic chicken, sangria, and fingers for dessert.

During a recent stay in Seattle we had a lunch and a dinner here. We found the restaurant has a excellent range of offerings and each choice turned out to be delicious. We had two types of lentil soup; both were excellent. Our other choices were equally good. We had both beef and lamb dishes that were well spiced and prepared. Following the dinner we also had a delicious serving of baklava. The service was excellent during both meals and portions were very generous. When you enter the restaurant the smell of spices and good food will make your mouth water. We will return the next time we are in Seattle. This was another case where the TripAdvisor reviews were a true indicator of the quality of a restaurant.

Excellent lunch. Prices were a tad on the expensive side for lunch, but given the quality I'm not complaining. Arguably the best hummus I've ever had.
