What are you craving?


Petaluma is a foodie’s fantasy — a home to entrepreneurs who use their passion and creativity to craft ice cream, bake bread, make cheese, distill whiskeys and ports, and ferment charcuterie and kombucha, to name just a few of the artisanal delicacies to be found in shops, restaurants, and markets that dot the city of Petaluma.

Explore the perfect pairing — great dining and historic downtown. Petaluma’s picturesque iron-front buildings aren’t just a feast for the eyes; the downtown district is a literal feast of dozens of eateries that offer visitors an unforgettable taste of our town. Reputed to have more restaurants per capita than much larger cities, you won’t have to look far to find one that showcases the community’s delicious abundance.

Venture outside our historic downtown, and you will find all of the traditional chain restaurants you find throughout the country as well as some hidden gems- sports bars, tasting rooms, and friendly neighborhood restaurants the locals know and love.


Don’t leave your furry friends at home! Pack up the entire family and head to Petaluma. Dining out at one of Petaluma’s delightful bistros is a treat that should be shared with all members of the family, including the four-legged variety. You’ll enjoy the sights – and your pup will particularly enjoy the delicious aromas wafting along the breeze – at one of Petaluma’s many restaurants with patio seating. And if a morsel of that juicy, char-broiled burger just happened to fall from your plate and land a few inches from his nose, tails would wag. Bone appétit!
