    Magnificent meal, from the homemade chips, the crudo, cauliflower, lamb ribletts, wild mushroom risotto to the sinful churros; each dish perfectly prepared and mouthwatering delicious. The staff were also wonderful ensuring we had a perfect dining experience.

    Terra plata was the best experience I’ve had in forever quite frankly. It was my birthday and I had old college friends who flew in (I’m old- hahaha) and Terra staff went above and beyond for me and my friends. The food was incredible!!!!! At first glance you think you’ve seen certain dishes but don’t be fooled, you haven’t had it like they make it. We ordered a lot and each dish was so special. I wanted to wow my friends as I’m new to Seattle and they were wowed. The rooftop was warm and cozy with gorgeous views too.

    Service was absolutely amazing. Went here to celebrate my mom’s 70th birthday. She was immediately greeted by name by the hostess and wished happy birthday. When we were seated at the table, special menus had been printed that said “Happy 70th Birthday Jean” on them. Absolutely wonderful experience

    Lovely atmosphere, we would have preferred our food come out all at the same time. Overpriced eggs with asparagus and snow peas, I never saw or tasted asparagus in my eggs. I think $18 would have been a fair price, not $22

    Went with a group of coworkers for an after-work dinner. We sat on the roof, and even though it was pouring down rain and kind of cold out, we were warm and dry. The food was excellent. We had some dietary restrictions, and they were able to accommodate with options that tasted as good as or better than the regular options. Drinks were great. Our server had a great personality and was attentive throughout the evening without being overbearing. We all agreed we want to go back on our next work trip. Very nice, relaxing night out for the team!

    We came for the Paella and were very disappointed. Two of us ordered the just seafood version and were disappointed because: 1. Portions were actually very small with two people sharing.. 2. There was hardly any detectable spicing to the dish--we do not like hot spicing, but the dish lacked the tastefulness that Paella spices produce in the finished dish. 3. There was a piece of fish which was OK, but very small-like 2"x2# per dish and it was somewhat overdone, but not excessively. 4. The clams were very small and seemed hardly worthwhile. We know, being New Yorkers (90 years old, that claims called Little Neck, so called because on the east coast they were first noticed in abundance in Little Neck, NY and are not so small. We think it's a Pacifica version of the clams and have observed that many Pacific coast fish, except for salmon. and steelhead. ling or black cod, are not worth the effort, not even Pacific Red Snapper. 5. There were 2 muscles for each of us, which we OK, but again without much taste. 6. There was something like a small piece of Octopus, which was rubber- like in its consistency. 7. The rice, while cooked to remain on the bottom, was overdone and stuck to the bottom, so most of it was burned more than carefully sauteed and we used our table know to scrape more off the bottom because we deliberately came hungry. 8. By contrast the service was excellent, helpful and enjoyable to engage and the salad was good-the best part of the meal, except that the dessert was a clear winner, too. We will try Terra Plata one more time, won't order the Paella and hope for the best! (FYI, we live in Horizon House, a senior residence a few blocks away where we cook most of the meals we eat in our apartment, because we run into problems like those above, but on much easier dishes to prepare.

    We love paella night at Terra Plata, but last night's paella was not delicious. The pan was different and the rice was very bland. No veggies or spice and thin layer. Seafood, chicken , and sausage very good. We're more bothered by sitting (roof top) so close to tables on both sides, uncomfortable to chat. Will need to limit our dining here and on the lovely roof.
