We went out for dinner in a Saturday night. 20 minutes waiting was reasonable- no reservation. Food is average, too much rice on the entree dish and little meat. To pay almost $20 dolars for a plate of rice it's not my favorite entree. I got Ouzi that was very disappointing- as I said it was too much rice, almost... More

We visited this place around 6.30pm on a Friday evening, we were out near the space needle and I had spotted this place on my google map app. The place was practically empty, there were 2 couples eating. We were seated quickly, but right near the toilets, so we decided to move nearer the window. The waiter poured our water... More

We were in the mood for Middle Eastern and chose this place after reading many reviews on Yelp and Trip Advisor. The food could not have been worse. We had falafel and we have never had such bad falafel. The service was not good either. Maybe it was a bad night for them but we are definitely not going back.

A group of friends and I went here on a Saturday and were able to get a table for 6 right away without a reservation which was awesome. Our server was fantastic and very friendly even though we were probably being a bit loud and annoying. Haha. The cocktails were delicious but the highlight of the night was hands down... More

Petra offers one of the better values in Seattle. The food is good, the portions are large, the prices are reasonable, but what I really love about Petra is the warmth and friendliness of the staff. Bring your toddler and your tween, your fussy mother, your uncle who complains about everything, your gluten-free vegan sister, and the staff at Petra... More

Thjis was our second visit to this bistro because our first visit was so memorable. They have a wife range of entrees and since there were four of us, we each had something different and each one of us marveled at the goodness of our entrees. The staff were very competent and skillful. After our cocktails were served and our... More

Large open restaurant with everyone from young couples to large families. We had the Combo Kabob and Veggie Kabob. Both excellent. A belly dancer passing by the table with a sword balanced on her head was a bit of a surprise, but lots of fun.

After my last visit, and less than stellar review, I need to update on the basis of a visit last night. A friend suggested going there and I was game to give it another go. Very pleased with both the food and the service. This time I had the red lentil soup - a house specialty - and the combo... More

Had the African Chicken for our anniversary dinner and it did not disappoint. Ordered it to go so we could eat in our hotel room and we were very happy with our meal. Large serving size and delicious.
