We have been to Cafe Terra-cotta many times and it never disappoints! The martinis are delicious . I always order the cucumber mint martini because it is so unique and has great flavor! The Brussels sprouts appy is a must , crispy and delicious. The Colorado lamb chops were fantastic and so was the salmon! Wine is good and service great!
Overall dining experience was good but not great. Grilled romaine Caesar salad was a big chunk of romaine with just the outside leaves being grilled. Would have been better if each individual leaf had been grilled. Also, hardly any dressing on the salad. My entree (diver scallops) was very good. Hubby got salmon and the carrots that came with it were cold. Food came out very quickly, leaving us feeling like we were being rushed to finish our meal.
Very nice restaurant in an old house.
Lovely and exquisite presentation of food....service was perfect....this is a new find and we will return over and over....the dining room is intimate but also outdoor patio dining ....so excited to find this not so new restaurant.....
This is a wonderful, small restaurant. They just rolled out a new menu and we tried several items. All of which were fantastic. Our server was friendly, attentive but also let us enjoy our conversation. We dined during a cold, snowy night so the patio area was closed but it would be a wonderful location with warm weather. We will definitely be back.
Wonderful anniversary dinner
Fantastic food, great wait staff. we were not rushed at all. Will dine there again and again.
We enjoyed our dinner - very much! Great atmosphere and one of the owners served us our wine. We all had so much fun - also their warm fresh baked bread is amazing!!
Great atmosphere, friendly staff and very good food.
Great food! Everything had a special touch. Our waiter was great-sorry I can’t remember his name-and we were fortuitously seated in a booth that cut off much of the noise. Our second time there and we will be back!
When dining at Cafe Terracotta I know it will be a great experience. The menu changes and the food is always good. No matter what my mood, I'll find something GREAT to eat. We took friends who hadn't been there and they loved it!
My only desire would add some sound absorbing material. For myself who uses hearing aids, it does create a problem to hear. Ones fellow diners
Fabulous! The pork belly appetizer was unbelievable. Entrees were satisfying- perfectly cooked scallops, and Chicken Wellington (delicious mushroom sauce). The bread pudding dessert was rich, fluffy, sweet...perfect. Lovely ambiance and attentive service.
This restaurant is an amazing restaurant and the food is great - presentation + taste 5*
Service is always top notch; food selections are always creative and served with great care. Attentive but not intrusive staff. Always wish I could eat more as every dish has been outstanding.
Excellent food and service as always.
We had a wonderful time and the food and service were great! We love coming here.
My only complaint is that I wished I had a single large ice cube in my Old Fashioned instead of regular ice, first-world problems!
I treated my near eighty year-old aunt and uncle, and wife to my Birthday dinner - our rules say the birthday person chooses and pays. We had already dined at Cafe Terra Cotta several times before, and I thought all of us would enjoy it again - and we did. The food and service were excellent, but as "old timers" we chose to eat early - not to avoid the crowds, but to get to bed early. As such, this review is for early eaters. Christian, our waiter, was excellent and informative, and humorous. He deserved his "hefty" tip.
In retrospect, it was good to go early - at least on this night (Tues) - because a large party of men came in later and made so much noise, we couldn't any longer hear each other - so we left. That was okay, we were at the end of our evening anyway, but if that had occurred at the beginning, we might not have stayed.
Great place to eat and chat - at the right times. Will be back again, without doubt.
Overall a very disappointing dining experience. The most grievous crime was the noise. I couldn't hear my date. We were packed in close to other couples. The meal was too pricey for this sad ambiance. However the food was outstanding.
Wonderful meal! Cafe Terra Cotta never disappoints.
It was nice and the food was delicious but very little....
Great as always
Love this place...great fresh food made to perfection!
It was very noisy. We were seated at a banquet table and it felt like we were conversing with the people next to us. The bench side of the banquet was much lower than the chair on the other side. The sauce on the appetizer and the entree tasted the same. I failed to get the name of the server but he was excellent. Great timing and just the right amount of friendliness.
The vegetarian option wasn’t any good. Spaghetti squash and onions.
One of our favorite places. The food is always outstanding.
Great food and service on a busy Valentines dinner! The menu was amazing and a great wine menu. One of our very favorite places.
We dined at Cafe Terra-cotta for valentines dinner it was a set menue that nite...normally the food is excellent. I think we should have had Valentines dinner the night before or after. I ordered the scallops with a cauliflower purée of some kind. The scallops were fine but the cauliflower was tasteless. And to be honest I ordered this because of the side dish.
We live in this area and love Cafe Terracotta, it is our go to restaurant for any special occasion for which we prefer to remain closer to home, Valentines Day as an example. The prix fixe menu was very well done, we would have tried any of the offerings for the 4 courses. The service was excellent as always. We came early and enjoyed the quiet vibe, frequently this restaurant has a high noise level.
Great food and fun place, great for a nice date! Will likely be back!
We had another wonderful meal and it is a perfect place for a special day
Limited menu but good.
Way too loud for normal conversation.
Delicious food, exceptional service! Loved the quaint cozy atmosphere
Excellent food and service - highly recommended.
Good food and service but make sure you are ready to pay a lot for that! Tables are real close together and feels like you are having dinner with strangers. We even had some lady sitting next to us comment on our appetizer. Almost felt like I should have offered her a bite. Very loud and tough to have a conversation.
We have been 5 or 6 times and always have enjoyed the food service and ambiance. My wife had the short rib this trip and I had the scallops. Both were expertly prepared and served with outstanding sides.
Great food, service, & ambiance.
Wonderful food and service, but VERY noisy, hard to have a conversation. Nevertheless, we will come back!
We enjoyed a wonderful meal at the Cafe on Saturday, 22 January. This was a joint birthday celebration for 2 members of our family (we had a total of 6 in our party).
Christian was our waiter and made us feel incredibly welcome. From the opening champagne toast to menu recommendations, his service was attentive, warm, and helpful. We were able to enjoy a truly festive meal (more than half the table took advantage of the spaghetti squash entree) and still make our performance at the Town Hall Theatre down the street.
This is the second time that my sister-in-law and I have had Christian as our waiter - and we'd recommend him to anyone who dines at the Cafe.
Very good service. Food was solid as well. Will be back.
