My husband and I ate dinner on Valentine's Day while visiting Mammoth to ski. The dinner and service was great. The restaurant is very charming.. We ate dinner there for the first time last year after visiting Mammoth for many years. When we return it will be our go to restaurant.

I have eaten at Petra's for years on my annual ski trips to Mammoth. The food has varied but seems to have settled down to a very fine selection of items. We ate there twice on this trip. The soup was delicious and hot. The appetizers were wonderful and filling. Short ribs were perfect and the salmon looked good also... More

I tried Petras for the first time a few days ago and I was pleasantly surprised. The food was fantastic and the service was great. The setting is mountain, rustic and the fireplace is a nice touch. I was there for dinner on a Tuesday night and the place was full.

We actually just discovered this restaurant last year but it's quickly become our favorite restaurant in Mammoth. The food is amazing: great appetizers like spaetzle, tuna, and baked Brie and great entrees like steak, pork, and chicken. Service is always great with a friendly and helpful hostess. Having it's own parking lot is a bonus

Nice place but food average. Apparently not bad for mammoth. Chicken dish was average. I basic salad that stated walnuts, etc. Salad was lettuce and dressing, a total waste of money.

I go to Mammoth about 5-7x/year now and make sure that I have my reservation at Petra's booked in advance every time. Every item on the menu I have had has been excellent, and I am pretty sure I have had them all at this point. The wine selection is wonderful, the wine director Mitch is the best!

We like Petra's enough to have spent multiple Thanksgiving dinners with them. Warm and cozy, consistently good service and a robust wine list... We come back every year.

Everything is great here. The food is gourmet without being pretentious. They have a great selection of wine. Their small plates are great too.

We had very nice dinner here during our stay in Mammoth. I had the salmon and the Mr. had the pork medallions, which he said were excellent. I have had better salmon before, but this was good, maybe just cooked a little longer than what I prefer. The wine was good, the service was excellent, and as we were there... More

Upon checking into some good dining alternative's Petra's seemed to have an excellent reputation and so we decided to give it a try. Just here for two weeks we learned that Petra's was closing in three days for the 'shoulder season' as it's called in these parts so w made reservations and got right in. 'we found a very cozy...
