    Paella Monday . Love the idea. But…. Can you please be more true to the original dish? Seafood or land food. Not mixed . More saffron. More chorizo in the land food . Had a good time just the same. Loved the patatas bravas and the Tempranillo .

    First, the food is outstanding, consistently wonderful... and priced accordingly. The service is generally quite good, but there is a constant hurry-up-and-let-us-turn-the-table vibe. This is no place to enjoy a relaxing meal... which at these prices is a disappointment.

    Very slow service. Took 10-15 minutes for server to come to the table. Didn’t receive drinks until 25 minutes into our reservation. Food arrived about an hour after the start of our reservation.

    Fantastic experience from start to finish. Everything was made with care and precision, from the house-made non-alcoholic drinks to the desserts- and everything in between. We tried almost everything on the menu and really enjoyed the format, since it is optimal for sharing, and dishes come out as they are ready, rather than all at once. This will definitely be our first choice for fine dining in Seattle. It’s also only 3 blocks from the Paramount, which makes it a great candidate for dinner and a show. Allow plenty of time to enjoy your meal here: we were never waiting for anything but our meal, culinary tour really, lasted over an hour and a half. Service was great!

    Terra Plata used to be the place to grab a meal. I’m not sure what’s happened to the food but it was pretty disappointing. Ordered the Pappardelle (but wasn’t very good at all - flat on flavor and complexity), risotto (about cheesecake level quality), and the bone marrow (always delicious). The hostess staff was great but our waiter was less than thrilled being there. If you have dessert specials, please tell me as you hand me the menu, not when I have to ask.

    What’s happened to my go to pre show restaurant? Frites overcooked and oily. Pork was dry, in a nondescript sauce, one large potato. Beet salad only had two tiny citrus pieces…I was very unimpressed. Waitstaff tried to make up for it by bringing extra dessert. Bread not served with main as requested. 🤷‍♀️

    I found this on a list of quieter restaurants in Seattle. The food is excellent; our server had a great vibe and I have to say, our table was excellent as far as audio was concerned! We were toward the back on the left as you enter and shockingly, we could hear each other speaking even though we were near the bar. Loved it and would definitely go again.

    I love this place! They are consistent in food quality, service and value. The Steak Sandwich and Patatas Bravas were delicious. I did not love the shrimp and grits but I am admittedly SUPER SNOBBY about grits. The rest of the dish (shrimp and greens) were super tasty. We had a good time, as usual.

    We booked Terra Plata for Valentine’s Day after a wonderful experience on our anniversary. Unfortunately, this experience was less positive. The food was excellent, no complaints there. The problem was the table and the service. The table we were given was dreadful. Yes there is some expectation of cold on a rooftop garden… but the table we were given was in the wind and the only option we were given was to use a blanket provided by the restaurant. Which, given the fact that COVID dividers we’re still up, and you know the last 2 years, seemed honestly gross. The best part was when the staff started seating random people who were waiting for tables next to us so that we could watch them get seated at tables with heaters that worked. We would have loved to stay for dessert, but it was so cold we couldn’t bare another minute. This was validated by the server who without a breath of irony said “I saw you shivering over here.” This was a failure of the front of house for not re-seating us (the communal blanket was the only offer given to us) and for even seating someone at this table. I made this reservation a long time ago and I would have thought it would have yielded a table that wasn’t woefully unpleasant.

    We joined Terra Plata for Valentine's dinner, although if there as a prix fixe menu, I don't recall. What I do recall was that the drinks were very good. I don't know what gin is purple, but whatever they served was very herb-y and dry, which I like. The dishes were great. Roasted beets were perfectly done and the shaved ricotta was delicious, the apple/arugula salad was not helped by truffle. Honestly, that's my only knock on dinner. I enjoy truffle, but in that dish, it just didn't work. The steak was delicious, tender and cooked exactly how I requested it. The staff was very busy, and I suspect they're overworked because it's hard to find employees right now. But I didn't feel either rushed or ignored. Dessert is not interesting to me, but my wife had some sort of chocolate cake and said it was good. I just love how they source such high quality ingredients locally and make an effort to make simple things taste outstanding. And I think it's a good value. You get high quality food, prepared by people who are paying attention and trying to deliver something special. I appreciate them for that and will definitely return.
