We got the Spinach Artichoke pizza, Brussels salad, tots, and molten cake. The ice cream with the cake was melted but everything else was superb. We were so full basically had to be wheelbarrowed home. I had the Cote du Rhone, which I'd also very much recommend.



The hostesses were incredibly friendly and welcoming. The ambiance is really nice, with a good level of noise--not to loud that you can't hear each other. My date and I were tucked into a nice cozy corner. Unfortunately neither of us felt like drinking (we went on a weeknight) but the wine menus looked amazing--they have a special menu with $40 bottles that all looked great. The waitstaff was super attentive and checked on me multiple times (offered suggestions, asked if I had questions, etc.) before my date arrived and was very prompt; the food came quickly as well. The food itself was pretty good--my girlfriend got octopus which was amazing (so she says, I'm a vegetarian) and we shared a mushroom truffle pizza. So much arugula. It was really good, but I'm not sure if I'd pay $24 for it again. We got the chocolate lava cake for desert which came with berries and ice cream. It was a little small to share, but we were both quite full so that was fine with us. Overall great experience!



We loved Petaluma! We had the Artichoke/Spinach dip for starters and then ordered the steak and the braised beef. Everything tasted amazing and very fresh! Plus they have a huge list of wines to choose from.
The staff was extremely friendly and attentive.
On a Sunday evening, there were a lot of families with small children but if you don't mind a lively vibe than this place is perfect.
I will definitely visit Petaluma again!
