Great food, lively atmosphere, fun wait staff. The portions are huge and the sauces heavy, so you might want to consider sharing. I always take something home with me, because I can never finish it all. I eat here on every annual visit to Petaluma,...More

I loved the seafood, The dinning room was cozy and familial. The open kitchen provides a sense of home. The portions are large and the service was great. I had some clients/friends come into town and I really wanted to show them a special place....More

This place was amazing...they said the food is Californian French Cuisine, whatever they call it, it's perfect. The service was friendly, they made us feel like we were eating at an old good friends home. Everything from the Talmous appetizer to the Gazpacho and French...More
