This restaurant was visited by me in 2015 when it was a small boutique restaurant with limited tables but unlimitedly tasty food. I had decided then on my next visit I would visit this place and I did yesterday. The experience just got better with a bigger place and courteous staff. We ordered the trickster IPA beer, and tamerhind drink... More

Two years ago we had the good fortune to visit Jordan and we were looking for a Seattle restaurant where we could relive the adventure. Petra Mediterranean Bistro did not disappoint. Inside is a beautifully appointed space with paintings of Petra and the Mid East with traditional influences and a guilted touch. They feature Jordanian dishes plus ones from around... More

I really enjoy Mediterranean food. I like the spices, the preparation, and the ambience. Petra has it all. Other reviewers have raved about this as a great place for vegans as if that's all it is good for. This place is perfect for carnivores as well. There were 3 of us and we feasted over the hummus and house made... More

I ordered carry out because they were about to close for the evening. They cooked my order of beef kabobs to perfection! The spices on the kabobs and the flavorful rice were delicious. I would definitely eat there again!

This place was very close to the Chihuly Gardens and Space Needle. We stopped to order lunch and the service was good, the food was great and the prices were not expensive as some of the other restaurants in Seattle. Good dishes are the garlic lemon chicken and labnie!

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
