Terracotta Red Ratings and Reviews
Several people recommended this restaurant so I finally took my husband here for his birthday, and I'm so glad I did! We ordered the lamb and basmati balls as an appetizer, and the sauce was lovely, but the balls had a heavy coating and were rather dry. After that, everything we ate was absolutely delicious. We had the crispy drunken chicken and the Terra rice. The rice was full of pork chicken and shrimp and was very tender. Our friends had the tangerine beef and honey walnut shrimp, which were both incredible. The shrimp was so tender and tasty. The only reason I have the food a 4 was because of the lamb and basmati rice balls. We also had the special dessert, a coconut flan, which was out of this world. The place was a little noisy, though, the only drawback.
The food was OK - not bad and not good. Kind of disappointing since other reviews said it was excellent. Makes me think that maybe I just ordered the wrong dishes.
On the plus side, the service was excellent and when we told the waiter we didn't care for the appetizer, he promptly removed it from the bill. Based on the service I may give this place another try.
Terracotta Red is one of my favorites for food, service and very good cocktails. I have yet to order something I didn't like. Presentation is simple, but attractive. I don't consider the noise level to be energetic. It is loud. Not a place for people with hearing difficulties. The walls are mostly bare. More pictures or hangings of some kind might help the noise level. It doesn't usually bother me and I will continue to return for the food, especially.
I have been there 4 times now, and loved the food. I took a friend from out-of-state for a special lunch. The appetizer (calamari) was great, as was the contain, however the two dishes we chose to share were mediocre at best. The special chicken was tepid and watery and the Terra Rice was rice--loads and loads of rice. We hunted for the shrimp, which seems newly de-frosted and there were about 4--the other protein was scarce to say the least. I hate it when I take people to a restaurant I promise to be good and am disappointed! This was my first lunch trip--perhaps more care is given during the dinner hour.
We helped this en route to a weekend camping trip and wanted a tasty, not too involved, healthy meal. We super enjoyed our meal - the service was excellent - friendly and professional. The food choices were great - we don't eat meat other than fish and they were able to offer lots of options -including lots of gluten free ones. We didn't have cocktails, but they looked seriously yummy! Only downside was that they didn't take any chances with their spice/flavor levels. That being said, I didn't ask them to make our dishes extra spicy. SO, I wouldn't say it's a super foodie destination. (But who knows - the meat dishes looked well prepared!) Overall, such a nice on the road dining experience!
Got there early, seated immediately, had a Lychee Martini, my wife had a Rosemary Bliss, both were great. Our friends arrived, got a beer and a wine while we talked and caught up. We ordered an appetizer(beef skewers) and continued to relax and chat. We ordered wine and hot & sour soup and continued to chat. We ordered four dishes, 3 were fantastic, one was good. Had a great time and prompt friendly service without any pushiness. Will go back regularly.
The meal was excellent! The service was fantastic, friendly and prompt. The only downside was the hostess, who couldn't be bothered to make eye contact, as she showed us to our table. Acted like she was bothered, that we were there. Otherwise, the food and service were excellent, and I'd definitely come again.
Kind of terrible hot & sour soup really set the tone. Like watery catsup it was too sweet and was neither hot nor sour. The soup was so singularly bad I actually remember very little of the rest of the meal. My dining companions tell me their lamb dish was good, but I don't actually recall it. Perhaps it's just the one dish but ew, not going back.
My wife and I truly enjoy this spot. Food and drink menu is great and the execution of dishes is always spot on. The place is usually hopping when we're there so the volume level can be a slight challenge, but it's never been an issue. The wait staff is warm and friendly, but staffing levels seem to be a bit low so you might not see as much attentive service as you would in other place. Again, not a big issue for us. All in all a fantastic restaurant and one we go to repeatedly.
Quality food, wonderful service, total dining experience. We made online reservations and arrived early, to which we were greeted with smiles and given a wonderful table in the lounge. Our server was very professional and took our orders and made wonderful suggestions that improved our dining experience. Food came in a timely matter although this was a busy Saturday. Would recommend the dining experience although it is a bit loud in the dining room to carry on normal conversation.
My boyfriend & I decided to try out the restaurant after numerous reccomendations. We ordered 3 gluten free entrées & shared. Plenty of food, tasted fresh, but it tasted... meh. We wondered if because we chose gluten free if that had any impact on how the flavor profile came across. Wasn't really memorable. Staff was very courteous though!
I hadn't seen my friend Emily in over a year; she was just back from England! We were so excited to see each other! It was our first time at Terracotta Red. We loved the food. We had one of the fresh specials. I have never tasted mushrooms like that in my life! They tasted like (healthy) candy! We had several other items as well, including the Kung Pao chicken. Everything was delicious. The ambience was very nice. Emily and I are nice and friendly and happy people and we were on cloud nine to see each other. The waitress looked lovely but seemed *extremely* stressed and rushed. We arrived right at 11am, when the restaurant opens - we had made reservations in advance - and there were only 3 other people there, maybe she was stressed about opening up the restaurant. However, she could not be bothered to smile even once. I didn't like that. She also took about 2 seconds at our table every time that she stopped by. Any sort of friendliness or warmth was completely absent. Emily and I enjoyed our time there anyway but if great service means a lot to you, maybe pick a different restaurant. It was worth it though for us, for the food and the ambience.
My wife had a view of the chef. She said he looked less than confident and it was not the usual guy. Sorry I forget the chef's name who has been pure perfection in the past.
Thai Spiced Calamari was greasy, one of my usual favorites. Beef and Brocolli had a gelatin consistency to the sauce which was strange and the normal flavor wasn't there. Finally the brownie dessert was the driest brownie I have had in a long time. We'll go back, but look to see who is cooking behind the counter before taking our seats. My wife requested I not complain, but I really did not like signing the bill of $100+ with tip.
Terracotta Red is a great restaurant. We have eaten here many times and on several occasions we shared our evening here with friends. The only thing we don't enjoy is that there is a lot of background noise They have many dishes to choose from including gluten free! Everything we have ever tried here has been exceptional!!!
We've been wanting to visit this place for quite a while and are glad we finally did. The food is very good, with strikingly tasty sauces and good quality ingredients at a good value. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. For us as a couple there are only two downsides: we tend to want to eat late, and this is definitely not a late night dining place. We were there by 7:40, and it felt like the place was close to closing when we left, even though the hours say 10 pm. Also, the ambiance is pretty bare and was fairly noisy even though there were only a few diners at the time. At a busy time it must be very noisy. I'd encourage the owners to work more on the ambiance, which wouldn't take much to improve. But I would definitely return for the quality of the food and am glad this restaurant is located in Everett, which could use more such quality establishments. I encourage others to patronize this and other restaurants in Everett, so even more of them open up!
