    Incredible experience at Terra Plata last night. The service was very attentive and not rushed. Everything we ordered tasted unbelievable (highly recommend mushroom risotto and ribeye). Terra Plata even made personal menus for us since we were celebrating. They also were kind to include a complimentary drink at the end. Honestly, one of the best Seattle restaurants. Reservations hard to get so plan accordingly.

    Hands down one of the best meals I think I’ve ever had. Between the ambiance, the service, the quality and the taste, this is now up there on one of my top places to dine in Seattle. On top of all that, they made us feel so special for my husband and I’s anniversary!

    Paella night at Terra Plata was EXCEPTIONAL!!!!!! Our shared Mixto Paella (allergy free-gluten, soy, dairy, eggs) was the BEST ever and I've had it often. Rice was perfect and lots of chorizo, delicous chicken, and melt in your mouth seafood. Our server Delyce is ALWAYS our favorite. She is so welcoming, efficient, full of joy, and just knows how to make the entire dining experience on this incredible rooftop beyond outstanding. Our seating was also perfect, not too close to others . . we could chat easily.

    Let's start with this was Mother's Day dinner, busiest restaurant night of the year. Waited 20-30 minutes for our table, but staff were very kind and it's a beautiful setting. Server had only been working a week, needed to ask lots of questions from kitchen. However, he was sweet, kept apologizing and was clearly running hard. The entire staff was running hard. Suspect kitchen was off its groove. Food came out unexplained, at odd sequence, some dishes were cold (and undersalted) when they should have been hot. Due to the lovely ambience and warm staff we will try again. Drawback was the food: maybe a B-.

    We waited 45mins for drinks. An hour for the food to come out and when we asked our server they were condescending about us asking for an update on the food and drinks. We had to continue to check in our asks and would have been better off dining at home. A shame that a $400 dinner for 7 was absolutely ruined by a disrespectful staff. Severe lack of customer service and a disappointing Mother’s Day dinner

    On Mother's Day, I was told my menu selection (the pork) was not available thirty-five minutes after ordering; my second and third choices (sausage, then the salmon) were not available either. We were bummed to eat baguette and yoghurt for our brunch. They were still seating people when we left. I wonder what they were able to order?

    I’ve been here several times before and have always had a solid experience. Unfortunately, this time we went to celebrate Mother’s Day brunch and it was poor. The menu had changed from what they normally have and it wasn’t nearly as good. The service left a lot to be desired; all of our entrees came out at separate times and after the appetizer/biscuit we ordered, which was also cold. The waiter didn’t seem to care, which only added to the frustration. It’ll be a while before they get my business again.

    It’s all about that rooftop. The atmosphere here is great. Service, drinks and food quality do not justify the prices. Our meal was a disaster, with one entree at a time coming out over the course of 45 minutes. Whenever this space turns over to new ownership we’ll be back but not before that.

    I had friends in town from India and wanted to celebrate them, including one having just completed a huge exam, so made arrangements with the restaurant and they were just the most thoughtful, wonderful hosts. Thoughtful gestures, exceptional food, great cocktails. 12/10 doing this more often. Great restaurant and team. Whether you’re having a night out on the town or a casual drop in and catch up, particularly with the open air seating and roof top, put this place on your list!

    Overall it was just fine. Decent food with fairly large portions great for sharing. Where they fell off was service. It took about 25 minutes from being seated to receiving our first drink, of which they forgot my wife’s. The food came out in an odd order with the fries taking a very long time (50+ minutes) yet the risotto coming out in only 30. Our waitress didn’t stop by very often and even the two tables next to us were also getting a little annoyed. Another table was sat after us, however, they received all their food and drink much faster than we did and we ordered the same items. The price is pretty decent for the portion sizes, and the ambiance is great, but the service needs work.

    I really wanted to like the place. But the salad leafy greens were looking brown and wilted. The apple slices looked oxidized as well. For a mid-priced restaurant, I expect fresher ingredients. Too bad because the ambiance is nice, and the server was nice. But overall, I wouldn’t go back here.

    I have dined here before and always had a good experience. This was not the case for this last visit. Came for brunch on Sunday at 12. The place was maybe 40% full with customers. Quickly seated by the nice host. The problem came with the food and our server. My husband ordered the chicken biscuits and gravy, I ordered the croque madame, and an order of chips. A while later, the server brought out my husband’s chicken biscuits and gravy and the chips. Placed them down on the table, and walked away. I thought, ‘oh he must just going to grab mine.’ However, he did not. I then got the pleasure of watching my husband eat his breakfast while I sat there waiting for mine. My husband wanted to wait to eat till I got mine, but his food actually came out cold. The gravy was room temp and therefore not very appetizing. As I waited for my ham and egg sandwich, our server never came back or addressed the delayed food. Finally, I was able to snag his attention by waving him down and asking if I was going to get my food. He responded “in a few minutes”. Indeed, a few minutes after that I did get my breakfast. For the rest of the meal, the server never acknowledged the delay or even addressed me. He did come by and fill our water but while doing that he touched the bottom of the water pitcher on my husbands food. By then he was not into his cold biscuits anyway so it wasn’t much of a loss. I know there are off days everywhere. I understand a busy restaurant- this was not the case. One employee was packing loose leaf tea in tea bags for the majority of the time we were there. I considered Terra Plata a nice place and was expecting a nice time. It was disappointing to not have this experience this time. There are so many great places to eat in Seattle so a bad time like this puts Terra Plata bottom on my list.

    We came for my bday and everything was great including the food and service. Both entrees were on point and my cocktail was very well made. The server was also great and accommodating. Tables are a little close to each other which makes it a little difficult to move around but that's a small complaint. Overall, just a great place for a night out or date night.

    Very loud -- hard to have a conversation. The staff kept the front door open on a cool night with a breeze, so our table near the door was chilly. We had to ask twice to have the door closed. A mistake was made on our bill. When we pointed out the mistake, the serving team responded brusquely -- not a good way to end the evening.

    The restaurant is gorgeous and the patio is lovely but this was my second visit and the food was underwhelming at best. Undercooked, barely warm risotto, strangely textured, spiced pate -- we would have been better off heating up leftovers. Even my cocktail was lame. The service was even worse. I don't even think we had an assigned server. You could tell our food sat out and I couldn't find a server when I needed one. No one ever asked us how we were going or if we needed more beverages or water. I'd return for a beer and apps on the patio with friends but I'll save my money for dinner elsewhere. Underwhelming describes the experience perfectly.
