Delicious Food, Friendly Service.
We stumbled upon Petra during a recent weekend trip to Seattle. What a find!!!! Walking in the door, we were immediately greeted by a very nice server, who gave us our choice of seats and promptly brought our beverages. The mint oregano hot tea was perfect for a chilly Seattle afternoon.
While we oogled the menu, another nearby server educated us about the different choices and seemed genuinely interested. Middle eastern music filled the air of this warm, elegant, yet casually decorated light filled restaurant. The colors are pleasing, and the overall atmosphere is lovely.
Our lunch entrees were prepared quickly, and they did not disappoint. The dolmathes were EXCELLENT, and presented nicely. The vegetarian shawarma was THE BEST, perfectly seasoned and prepared. The shish kabobs were also wonderful.
Next time we visit Seattle, you can bet we will be back to Petra, perhaps this time for dinner. Love, love, love this place!
Citysearch Editorial Review.
Not limited simply to standard Greek food, this Belltown Mediterranean restaurant fully represents the cuisine of the region (including Jordan, Turkey, Lebanon and North Africa)--an exotic mix of shawarmas, kabobs and plenty of vegetarian offerings available for both lunch and dinner.
Great Mediterranean in Belltown.
Open for lunch and dinner, Petra is a great addition to the Belltown dining options. Menu offer dishes from Jordan, Lebanon, Greece, Turkey, Northern Africa. I always get an order of the hummus. Sometimes I take it up a notch with the MOSABAHA - which is hummus mixed with cooked chick peas. Topped with sautéed almonds and pine nuts. Great job Petra!
