The absolute best place for anyone looking for great food, ambiance, and service that is always top notch. Any meal, any occasion , and occasion! We even had them cater our Mother’s Day Celebration last year with everything from fresh fruit to Mimosas. We still want to be able to get a great table (they all are) so don’t tell everyone! 😁

The service impeccable. my dad's coffee was stale and it was replaced immediately with a fresh cup. I ordered something out of the ordinary-cauliflower with eggs which was absolutely delicious! My dad said his egg benedict was very good. We were even seated in a booth after my dad wanted to be more comfortable. Waiter was very attentive! First time will absolutely return!

Another excellent meal here. Our service was great and the food was outstanding. The intimate setting is always a plus, and the remodel in the last year has reduced the noise level. Cafe Terracotta never disappoints us.

The lamb shank was the best ever (second time I have been to this restaurant in a week). Jackson our waiter was the best. Try the creme brulee, you will want another!

Sat outside in the yurt which was really fun and amazing and cool in more ways than one. It was warm in the yurt until dessert when the outside temperature was like 21° and the flame started dropping about a third. It never got really really cold but it got cool enough that you’re almost needed to put your jacket on. But the yards are fine I think if the temperature is above 35°, even through dessert. Food and service was great as normal at Cafe Terracotta.

The food was great, the atmosphere was great and our waiter was very attentive. My only complaint was the kitchen was running pretty slow. We waited for almost an hour once we had ordered for our food to arrive and there were 5 people total in my party.

The meal was excellent. It is definitely on the pricey side (ends up being ~50$ a person) total), but their options are so good. I had the lamb, which was fantastic. My wife had the halibut, and I'm glad I got the lamb instead. Hers was good, and she really liked it, but not for me.

Great night out! The restaurant has been a long-time favorite of ours and we finally made it out for a visit after being home in the pandemic. They have done an excellent job with safety protocols. The food was excellent and the service was top-notch (from the whole team, including our server Aaron). The ambiance here is so great- not something you find in many other restaurants.

Lovely anniversary dinner, celebrated outside on the plastic-enclosed porch, with multiple heaters at our disposal to fend off the single digit temperatures. Wonderful wait staff, exceptional food, romantic jazz soundtrack in a fairyland of glittery white lights. Could not have been a nicer evening.

Cafe Terracotta never fails to impress us. I’m sure there are other amazing restaurants in this area, but we always come back here. They are managing Covid and reduced capacity with creativity- we always feel safe here. We will be back again!

3 of us had lunch in one of the outdoor structures that the restaurant has creatively constructed. There was a tall patio heater in the corner and another small wall heater over the table. A cozy Covid cabin. Although are legs stayed a bit chilly. The service was excellent- the cabins are extra steps and time for the waitstaff, but everyone was attentive and welcoming. The Mediterranean salad could have used a little less dressing but was still good. Excellent Brussels sprouts and calamari. Good chicken sandwich.
Thank you Cafe Terracotta for all of your efforts during Covid.

The server was quite enthusiastic to offer suggestions and we felt rushed. I understand the need to turntables during Covid, but, we did make the effort to be there. My steak salad was fair. I paid plenty for a bowl of greens with sparse other ingredients and my medium rare order was undercooked. I wish I had known about parking being available and about the abundance of outside seating options.

During this unusual time Café Terracotta has successfully adapted. The Cabin/tents are especially useful to help keep groups distanced and feeling safe. They will also be useful in the summer months for outdoor dining even when we get back to "Normal".
Thank you for all you have done to help make the dining experience a pleasant and delightful one.
We will return soon.
