Our first time here. Food was a mixed bag. Asian spiced calamari, scallops, chocolate cake and creme brûlée were winners. Skewered tiger prawns with sausages would have been a winner if the large prawns hadn't been seriously overcooked. The "smoked bird" (chicken) was just meh -- the accompanying potatoes and root vegetables were under seasoned and had the consistency of cardboard. No bread is served ... at least we weren't offered any. Congenial, competent server. Pleasant outdoor dining where the noise level, an important consideration for us, wasn't a problem; don't know about the noise level in the interior dining room. Prices were a bit high in relation to the overall quality of the food. Because of inconsistency in preparation I think this is a restaurant where if you know what to order you'll be very happy.

Lovely and quaint venue. Steak (Filet) was decent, but really lacking in overall flavor. For the price they could add a great sauce or something to boost that up a bit. Kids and wife really enjoyed their meals. Service was amazing and even the manager was attentive to us throughout, and the server was very personable to us and kids. I found the wine was incredibly pricey for what you get at average per glass being around $12-$15 - I thought that was a bit nuts as the wines sold per glass don't really command this price in my opinion. Overall had a great evening.

Terra Cotta is a great restaurant for Saturday or Sunday brunch. They have a diverse menu, and there is something for everyone. We went as a party of 4 with a reservation...and still had to wait 45 minutes for a table and another 45 minutes for food. Plan on leisurely dining. You may want to go before noon, and after 1:15pm on the weekend so you don't end up waiting.

We were there for brunch, had a reservation for which we were seated immediately. Our dishes were very good, the service was very good and our overall experience met or exceeded our expectations. Having eaten there before, we missed the paintings which had been on the wall in the interior, which left the room lacking warmth. Will definitely return.

Disappointed our reserved table was given to a walk up. 30 minute delay from our reservation time until we were seated. The apology was heartfelt and genuine, I don’t have an issue with staff at all. Lastly there is no longer art on the walls, it was the touch that set this wonderful place apart. We will be back again, too many good experiences to doubt it at this point. Food as always soothed these negatives.

Perfect !
1. Overall amazing
2. Accommodating. Cousin has a weird salt allergy and they walked through the menu to see what’s best
3. Great wine
4. Ordered the Pork Chop, Hallibut and Tenderloin, cooked perfect in every way.

Waiter was attentive without being over bearing or distracted, always there but invisible ( big compliment!!)

We’ll be back.

The food was amazing, but a small portion for the price. My scallop dish had 3 small scallops, 3 tomatoes, 3 mushrooms and a huge portion of forbidden rice, but it was really tasty. The Calamari appetizer was probably some of the best I've ever had, and that was echoed by our entire party. Again, tho, a very small portion for the cost. Everyone in our group had nothing but praise for the quality and taste of the food. Maybe they don't offer dessert, maybe they do. We were never offered a dessert menu by our server. I would definitely go back here.

The food was excellent however, neither my guest nor myself received hot food. It was moderately warm. Breakfast is not good when it is only warm. I am never one to request a touch up of heat but we needed it. Server was extremely cordial.
