    Great food and sangria. Reminds me of a supperclub. Dancing around the tables with an old Cuba feel. Bring a dance partner or enjoy just watching.

    When choosing a restaurant blindly, it is rare to select one that meets the standards of a Terrazza. From our youngest diner, 8 years old, to myself as the oldest Terrazza met our expectations of a great dining experience. I could list the reasons, as there are many, however I simply say if you wish to try a new restaurant call and make a reservation.

    Came out for a late dinner and ladies night dancing and drink specials. The food was good and our waiter was very nice. We waited for the dance floor to fill, but I guess it was a slow night, so we ended up being the first ones out there. The DJ was good and he took our requests (prob cause we were the only ones dancing for a while. The floor filled up some little bit later, but we didn't stay too late - our bellies were quite full. Over all a nice experience.

    Unfortunately this experience was the worst we've had at this establishment. The noise level was extremely annoying. Couldn't even hear each other have any conversation. Additionally, we only ordered 4 appetizers as our main meal and everything was served together. I would think that being a waiter/waitress they should understand that you can't eat 4 things at the same time and should stagger their timing. Don't think I'll be returning to this place.

    Terrazza is warm & friendly. Food is delicious & service is excellent. Noise level was a little high because we were there on Easter Eve & there were several families with children. Also there were a couple of large parties there too. However, it was a very happy & homey atmosphere, so we didn't mind at all. Terrazza has seating at several pub tables in the bar area as well as outdoor seating. Check it out.

    In a pretty gated strip mall just east of the High Street circle. Parking is a breeze - plenty for all. It's a new clean place with lots of space and a cool separate bar area. Food is very nice and very reasonable! Great Mojitos!

    We celebrated a birthday here and were very pleased. Most of the food was outstanding - the pork chop was, however fatty and not very good. Service was great and would go back again.

    We LOVED this place, everything about it. Picked it because it was a good location to meet friends halfway, but were so pleasantly surprised when the food and service was so great. A great drink selection followed by authentic and tasty Cuban food, plus everyone was so friendly and welcoming. And there were strolling musicians too! We thoroughly enjoyed both the seafood and meat dishes and so did our friends. The calamari and empanadas are a must! We will definitely go back!

    I arrived at 8pm for my 8:15 reservations, the host forgot about us and gave everyone else that walked in a seat before me. I ended waiting until 8:30 to be seated. The waitress took my drink order and forgot to bring my drinks. Food was really delicious. I think the staff was not fully prepared to handle the valentines day rush.

    We enjoyed our dining experience. Good menu selection and well prepared food. Pleasant dining area but got a little louder as place filled up. Will definitely go back again.

    We were expecting your typical Spanish restaurant - a pot filled with saffron rice, peas and some flavorful but overcooked melange of seafood. This was anything but. Each item must have been freshly and independently prepared and set on our plates with the same pride as a French pastry chef would decorate his dessert plate. We marveled at the fresh, crisp and flavorful seafood. Now, we know the difference, and this is our new favorite Spanish restaurant. The only drawback is if we dine inside: more than loud - THUNDEROUS and impossible.

    My husband and I have been going to Terrazzas for the last 8 months. We take salsa lessons in Highland Park and one of our fellow dancers recommended the bands and DJ. We enjoy coming early for dinner first. I LOVE their avacado and mango salad (I could go for 2 servings) and my husband usually gets the jicama and apple salad. I've tried some of their specials as well as standard pork and beef dishes. Everything is delicious.
