Description: LUMA is a neighborhood restaurant in Petaluma's riverfront warehouse district serving lunch and dinner and brunch in a casual atmosphere. LUMA's wood fired oven is the source of an eclectic and creative array of dishes such as cripy brussel sprouts with pancetta, herb roasted chicken over mushroom bread pudding, and the oven roasted pear. Also plenty of thin crust pizza and fresh salads! Enjoy dining at the bar where you'll find a carefully selected list of wines from around the world and beer on tap as well as in the bottle. Easy parking, outdoor seating, kid friendly, a local favorite!

This is a very small trendy, bit cramped, overpriced restaurant. It just felt expense for what we received.

There were four of us that went to Lunch on a sunny day. We sat outside. We didn't care for the music and it was a bit loud. Two of us ordered the fish tacos. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. They mixed potatoes in with it, so portion of fish was just a few bites, came with a very small (maybe a large tablespoon) of cold black beans which tasted like they came right out of the can, and a delicious slaw (two bites). My partner had a Banh Mi which he said the pork was tender and he liked, however, he mentioned that he had better ones in LA from a food truck who specializes in them at half the cost. He asked if they could leave out an ingredient and it was on the sandwich.. The Calzones at the table next to us were large and came with sauce. The couple who ordered them said they were delicious.

My other friend wanted to try the Vegetarian Plate, however when we asked why it was so much more than the protein plate and what it comprised, the waitress said it was up to the whim of the Chef and couldn't tell us. My friend ordered a salad.

Lobster with Mac & cheese was delicious, finished off with a gorgeous key lime pie. Well balanced food and wine menu in a welcoming and comfortable environment. Nice easy walk if staying at the Metro.

Excellent Mexican and Southwestern Fare. Party of six - we had flatiron steak and chicken tacos. Chips and salsa were fresh and tasty. Service was very good. Would certainly return.

good quality in an area that is being newly developed by the Petaluma river. Just know that the building is small and a bit cramped.

Three of us walked here for lunch while shopping. The wait staff was very friendly and really knew his menu, and ingredients. we all had the special of the day, a Vietnamese sandwich on a baguette! The pork was thin sliced, tender, and flavorful. The slices of jalapeño, celantro leaves, and dakon raddish, all added to the taste. It was not over spicy, but I loved the chilies. Sometimes chiles are hotter than others. Depending on growing, and age. We also had coleslaw and marinated onions on the side. We cleaned our plates and were very satisfied with our choice. Walking in you see a bar as the center piece of the rom. Beautiful wood, and one of my friends comes here for dinner and sits at the bar with her husband. We had a booth, and were very comfortable. The owner also stopped by our table adding to the personalization of our experience. I am looking forward to another visit, and exploring the menu!
