What Insiders Are Saying
Meet Terzo, your utility player restaurant. It's hard to go wrong at this Cow Hollow bistro.
Thank you so much for the lovely experience! Champagne was sent to the table as we were celebrating an engagement!
Great service. Great food.
Very delicious and wonderful service!! Loved their menu.
This is one of our go-to dinner spots. The menu is tasty, healthy, and modern. The atmosphere is upscale, but not stuffy. The hummus and pita are a standout from other restaurants that try to do the same thing. Love the steelhead. Service is professional and we love that we see wait staff that have been there for years. It is a good feeling.
Great neighborhood find. We shared all small plates and everything was really fresh and good. Loved the meatballs! Service was very attentive and friendly. Will go back again with friends.
The appetizers were amazing but the chicken skewers with bread were tasty but a little over done. The chicken dish was lackluster. I'll give it one more try someday
Good value and good food but wasnt incredible. Calamri amazing but Chicken was only ok
Memorable best ever would go back in a heart beat. Added it to a short list of places not to miss. Waiter was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful to the picky guests next to us. Waiter took the menu in the back and made changes so they could enjoy the outstanding dining experience
Love terzo, love the waiters!
I celebrated my birthday here with friends. It was a delicious meal and all enjoyed. I especially liked the grilled octopus .
Great food and service!
The food was excellent. As was the wine. The real bonus was our waiter, Ron. What a character. Very knowledgeable, great fun and an absolute gent. No hesitation recommending Terzo
Interesting and delicious menu with an attentive waitstaff that didn’t overstep. Made for a great evening out
Great place with really good food. My favorite restaurant in San Francisco.
Spectacular food, exceptional service, and wonderful wine list. What else could you ask for? Will be back soon!
Not a five star restaurant but a restaurant that deserves 5 stars! Great ambience, nice wine selection, and food was great. The outside view of the restaurant doesn't do it justice...really enjoyed it!
Get the meatballs withpolent, calamari with lentils, pork roast
My husband and three adult sons came here for dinner. I found Terzo on yelp. We were all very happy with the dishes that we shared. We had the hummus, roasted beets, arugula salad, pork meatballs, chicken on skewers, and gnocchi. All were very tasty and consumed quickly. I would return and recommend to friends.
Recommended by a freind who loves locally great food very creative and unique. You will not be sorry!!
Great food and service. We had a family gathering at the large table in the middle of the restaurant a few months ago and had a wonderful time. The dishes are creative and delicious! This time I went back with a friend and were also delighted with the menu selections. My only negative is a common negative for almost all SF restaurants: too noisy and crowded.
The location is in one of the nicest parts of the city. We had a small table for two against a wall which was a bit crowded with traffic around us but it’s a good sign that the place was busy. Our waitress was excellent and was attentive but also gave us time when we needed it. The wine list and offer to allow us to taste before ordering a bottle was great. The food was good but nothing special. I like getting food out that is not something I can make at home. My friend from out of town was underwhelmed by the dining. Overall enjoyed the evening, wine and service but probably won’t go back for the food.
Friendly, capable service and very good food. Music was a bit loud and jarring, so the ambiance is not for everyone. Will definitely eat here again.
The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate us with our large party. The wait staff was fantastic too!
The steelhead was delicious!!
We loved everything about this restaurant. The food was delicious. The server knew every single meal by heart and she knew exactly what is in the each meal we were asking about. Some of my friends were on special diet and they were all very satisfied.
We requested a quiet table for the 6 of us since I am hearing impaired and they gave us the perfect table in the corner near the window. I was able to enjoy my companions conversation. This is really important to me and I wish more eating establishments in SF catered to hearing impaired people.
Now, the service..very well timed, unobtrusive, and professional. The food...every dish from pasta, to chicken to pork shoulder to hummus to peach crumble was truly delicious. The outstanding dish was the salmon...would order that in a heart beat ANY time.
TERZO is a great neighborhood gourmet restaurant. We will return again and again.
Comfortable, stylish atmosphere with friendly and attentive service. Many of the diners were obviously regulars and we first timers were treated equally warmly. To share we started with the Grilled Calamari and Beans, followed by the Pork Meatballs on Creamy Polenta. The Calamari was perfectly tender and enhanced by the Beans in a tasty sauce. I thought I was in Spain. The Meatballs were ethereally light, the best we have eaten in a restaurant. Much to our servers credit, she served these separately so we could enjoy the deliciousness of each dish. My dining partner chose the Spaghetti with Eggplant and I selected the Moroccan Chicken. They were both excellent. We enjoyed a lovely Priorat Garnacha-Carignane blend. Our meal ended with an Orange and Yogurt Sorbet enhanced with what tasted like rose water.
We have always liked Terzo and go there four or five times a year. We had a dinner for seven on July 3rd and we ordered a lot of food and the dishes were very well prepared. The service was its usual high quality and good natured. For Pac-Heights its rightly priced. One of the best in the neighborhood for sure.
Great as always!
One of my absolute long time favorites. Michael Bauer was right - it's a neighborhood gem.
As long time residents, can't believe this was our first visit for a local restaurant of over 10 years. Terzo is now on our regular list. Very attentive service, excellent choice of dishes. The roasted vegetables, the green beans, the steelhead -- all excellent choices. Terzo is what makes San Francisco, San Francisco. Sorry we didn't discover earlier. We'll be back soon.
Terzo is a good neighborhood restaurant. I see an alignment difference in value as the quality of the food is good, but they were priced for 'better' . Keep improving!
Everything was awesome! Ron was our server and amazing.
Fantastic meal and service! Came to celebrate husbands birthday and Father’s Day.
Really good in every way. The food was spectacular.
Excellent cuisine with very attentive service. The small plates to share make for both great appetizers as well as a meal. Highly recommend.
Perfect place for a nice date. Food & service are excellent.
Thumbs up all day long
Great meatballs...but why was the playlist all 70s disco music?
