Went there with my elderly mom. Easy access, very friendly and efficient staff. We had tabouleh that was very fresh and clean, and the special with scallops. Brilliant flavors. The squash soup was savory and delicious. We will be back.

Sometimes restaurants like Petras are discovered as a revelation. Eating there can seem heavenly, a blissful paradise that escapes the drudgery of a smallsize city. Oh but at what cost! Perhaps I should have recognized the warning signs. Regardless, I was swept by the overwhelming...More

Kal and his staff are the best. If you want good food with a middle eastern twist this is the place. The Freaki is good and the lobster ravioli is great.
