    The food was amazing. For a Wednesday night, the place was very busy. It did take quite awhile to receive our drinks and food, but I am guessing like most places, they are short staffed

    We always enjoy the Terracotta Café, but the summer time is best when you can eat outside. Their garlic rosemary frites are fabulous. I had the cobb salad and it was enough easily for two meals. Our server was especially patient with us as we had a mix up on where my friend and I were meeting. Great place, great experience. Don't miss the crème Brule.

    the cafe terracotta crew hit it out of the park last night. from the minute we walked in the door, we could tell they were on top of their game. after a short wait, we were seated and the gang continued to raise the bar. cocktails were made to order, a light salad was on point, then dinner. no matter how many times we have the short ribs, its like the first time. tender and flavorful and out of this world...again!!! Thanks Terracotta Crew, AWESOME job (again!)

    While the service was attentive but not hovering, the food seemed to have fallen in quality somewhat from prior visits. The brussels sprout appetizer had a bit too much vinegar. The Chicken Wellington, delicious at a prior visit, was lacking. The pastry was overdone and not nearly as flakey and the mushroom duxelles subpar. When ordered previously the waitress indicated the order would take extra time since it was made and baked after being ordered. This time it tasted as if it had been sitting pre-prepared. Disappointing. Cafe Terracotta has been one of my favorite restaurants in Denver. I hope they are not trending to lower quality to cut costs and squeeze an extra buck from the customer.

    Cafe Terracotta is one of my favorite places to bring guests. The service is outstanding and the food is always amazing. If you can reserve your table outside it is such a quiet and quaint experience. Inside is loud but still great.

    Cafe Terracotta is always a great meal. I Hadn't been for brunch before and it was lovely. Plenty of options from savory to sweet (maybe even some spicy!). Gluten free options via them having GF bread. I did the Eggs Benedict GF and it was delish.

    We love Terra Cotta, but on this particular occasion the service was REALLY slow--like an hour between sitting down and entre arriving. Sitting indoors (because of the heat) was incredibly noisy--wont do that again. We still love it though.

    We enjoyed a lovely lunch. Although the outside tables looked nice, it was comfortable to be seated inside on a hot day. Gabriel was our server, and did a wonderful job - he was very attentive, courteous, and checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed, yet wasn't overbearing. I'll look forward to my next visit.

    I know how many great reviews this place has so this is difficult. We were 1st ones there - the brussel sprouts were waaaay overdone, ie charred, calamari was waaay underdone - potatoes were fine but they're just potatoes with aioli, so... Our waiter also screamed when he spoke - just unsure if he has hearing issue. Lovely architecture and outdoor seating areas. Wanted to have one of those 5-star experiences.

    We loved our experience. We were celebrating a 53rd Anniversary. My only suggestion would be some nice dinner rolls, or some kind of artisan bread during our time before our meal arrives.
