Great service, food, desserts,
Yvette and the folks at Petaluma did a fantastic job with my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration.
Prior to the event, the contract was crystal clear and without hassle. We reserved the private York room, which I recommend.
On the day of the event, they were prepared for our 22 guests way ahead of time. They even helped get the balloons blown up!!
From seeing to the food/drink needs of the guests to the volume and type of music, they were on the ball.
And then there was the food …. Delectable!!!! Go Petaluma!!
p.s. Our guests enjoyed their biscottis, as well as their already great food and desserts!!
Great for a night out on the town with the entire family. My wife and I recently took our kids (ages 9 and 11) to Petaluma on a Saturday night. I am always wary of restaurants labeled as ?kid friendly?, and I try desperately to avoid the chains and tourist traps like Jekyl and Hyde. This well-appointed restaurant on the upper East Side did not disappoint. I was initially put off when, depite having made a reservation weeks ago, we were ushered towards the back of the restaurant in what appeared to be the ?family? section (you parents with small kids have all been there before). Once seated, however, the management and staff could not have been more pleasant and accommodating to my family (the chef even made my daughter?s favorite pasta dish despite the fact that it was not on the menu). All of our meals were delicious and fairly reasonably priced (by NYC standards). My only ?complaints? (albeit minor ones) were that there was virtually no time to digest between courses as the food was served too fast, and there seemed to be a persistent effort on the part of management to turn tables as quickly as possible - they constantly hovered over the diners, trying to determine when the next table would become available. Can?t say as I blame them, as people were lined up out the door waiting to be seated when we left at about 8:30 PM. If you and your spouse want to feel like you?re out for a special ?night on the town? despite the fact that you have the kids with you, give Petaluma a try.
EXCELLENT. Very professional staff and great Italian cuisine. We celebrated my friend's birthday party there last week and we were very happy with the service.
Best Pizza. Always amazing food and the best service. Menu is huge and has something for everyone from Pizza and Pasta to Veal and Polenta.
