I am always pleased with my experience at Cafe Terra Cotta. The food and service have always been great. I just wish there was a way to create an atmosphere that is a bit quieter. It was a packed house that night and my group of 7 could hardly hear if someone across the table spoke at times.

My husband and I had our first date there 7 years ago. Have gone back for our “anniversary” most years since. We’re disappointed this year. Menu stagnant and very limited. Service was just adequate and food was ok. Sorry to not be able to report better. Will have to give serious consideration before going back for dinner again. Will note, however, that breakfast and lunch there still are strong.

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Nice ambience and friendly service. Quite pricey and actually not worth the price for dinner in my opinion.

The lamb was outstanding!
The noise level will keep me and my friend away. It was extrememly loud last Friday night. So loud that we couldn't even have a conversation.
Maybe some sort of soundproofing on the ceiling would help -

We have been to and enjoyed this old historic home in Old Littleton which has been converted to a classy eating and socializing environment many times over the past few years. After this last visit, were were not satisfied as we had in the past. We usually would get the Walleye entree, but they no longer have it, and the other entree choices just did not rock our world like the Walleye did. Also no longer on the menu, which was amazing, was the Nanaimo Bar for dessert.

Terra Cotta has a lot of nice features and flavors and a great feel, so it is worth a try. We hope the management gets this memo and puts those items back on the menu.

This has become one of my favorite two restaurants west of I-25. Not sure why I didn't happen across it sooner. I reserve five star food ratings for fine dining that's far more expensive, but this isn't far behind making it an outstanding bang for your buck.

A party of 6 so not alot of spaces to seat us. We were near the kitchen but my partner enjoyed watching the chef at the grill...great great service, very personal, the noise level can get loud, but we certainly did our best to contribute...our group had lamb, duck, beef wellington, ribeye, and everyone totally enjoyed the dishes. Top notch. Also loved our salad with blue cheese and avocado. Wine list was extensive and something for everyone. Make reservations! Cannot get in otherwise.

I met my sister-in-law for dinner on Friday evening. Very glad we had reservations, as it was packed and there were folks waiting. Service was attentive, and our server provided several recommendations that were quite helpful. The noise level was the only downside; it was difficult for us to hear each other from time to time. But, it's a charming and warm location, and our meal was superb.
