    The Shuckery is an excellent new restaurant in Petaluma that specializes in delicious, super fresh oysters. The Caesar salad is so good that I ordered a second serving. Delicious lightly breaded calamari was a great starter. I had the entre of Linguine De Mar. Lots of mussels and shrimp in a light red sauce. Superb. The staff is super friendly and the ambience is very comfortable. So far I have brought two out of town visitors to The Shuckery and they have both love it, as well.

    I was excited to try this place with my friends in town and because of all the great reviews. The food was good, but the overall experience was ruined by the service. The waitress was uninterested, unfriendly, and hard to track down. Our drinks were empty before we could ask for refills. we spent over $200, we were there to have a good time and unfortunately I won't return.

    The food & service were outstanding! Really enjoyed our date night dinner. We shared The Plateau & the Cauliflower Wings which was perfect for 2. The smoked trout was so delicious we can’t stop talking about it. The raw oysters were also fantastic! We finished by sharing the goat cheese cake which was almost savory & filled with delicious flavors. Look forward to returning soon! There was a loud group seated next to us, but it wasn’t very loud before they were seated.

    we have been here about 10 times in the last few years--we go for the oysters and the special tin seafood from France and Portugal. I grew up in Marseille so it reminds me of my childhood except this is much better

    The food is amazing. Really loved all of the dishes, the mackerel conserva, linguine de mare, raw oysters, seafod platter, film noir cocktail -- definitely coming back. This is one of my favorite places.

    Wonderful restaurant with a fantastic menu and very fresh oysters. I highly recommend the Bloody Mary and the smoked trout dip. The conservas were delicious, especially the scallops in Galician sauce. An amazing restaurant!

    Always a good time in Petaluma. Food is wonderful & fresh. Service impeccable. We wanted to celebrate with an intimate anniversary dinner & this place delivers. Recognized our special occasion with some treats.

    Our Dining Experience at The Shuckery was good. The noise level is always a bit loud making it hard to have a conversation, especially when the restaurant is full, as it was last night. The food and service were very good. Our challenge was that we were 4 guests seated at a rather small table, and between the glasses, plates, water bottle & wine bottle plus then the food dishes it was very cramped! Not comfortable, given the pricing of the entrees.
