TerraCotta Wine Bistro
Our varied menu features both large and smaller portions of daily entrees that encourage guests to sample and share a number of dishes.
TerraCotta Happy Hour continues all day long, with over 60 wine by the glass options available for $6 every day until 6pm.
We travel to Santa Fe several times a year and we make it a point to dine at TerraCotta Winde Bistro on every visit. The staff is always courteous, and they remember us. The food is always excellent (love their French Onion Soup!). The wine list is also excellent with selections covering the full spectrum of wine varieties and prices. Give them a try, you won't be sorry.

Skip the oysters and the dinning room was so loud we moved to the bar which was much nicer. Great wine and fried chicken!
Great food great service, if we are ever in the area we would definitely go again
The food and decor were what you might expect from a small, quality restaurant, but what made the eating experience exceptionally pleasant was the mellow sound of the acoustical guitarist playing and conversing with customers from across the room. Seated on cushions against the walls in the opposite corner, the relaxing calm of the meal was rejuvenating after a long day of sightseeing. An added bonus was an opportunity to have good food that was lacking the Southwest influence of the previous five places we had dined at; when traveling local food is delicious, but sometimes universal staples done well are just what the chef orders.
We dined at TerraCotta during Restaurant Week. We sampled several red wines, all of which were excellent. The service was excellent and not obtrusive or neglectful. The special menu selections were interesting and good. The salad was really wonderful. My entree (pork schnitzel) was a perhaps a little dry but still very tasty. I ate it all! The dessert trifle was great though, by that time, most of us were so full we couldn't finish it. The dining area was comfortable, relaxed, and pleasantly quiet, allowing for good conversation.
I love this place! I have brought my company here 9 times in the last 3 years. Every time the food is delicious. Everyone is so hospitable and professional. I love their menu because even the pickiest eaters can find something they are going to like.
One of the best restaurants in Santa Fe. Their Shepard’s Pie and the lamb kebab entrees were outstanding as was their Brussels Sprouts Caesar salad.
We were lucky to eat there during restaurant week, but it would still be dining destination at full price
We thoroughly enjoyed the Restaurant Week specials with TerraCotta's usual wine special, a $6 glass of wine before 6 pm. It was a great way for friends to catch up before a performance at the Lensic.
Excellent meals - fried chicken and schnitzel. Busy and small, but comfortable enough. Great service. Would visit again, over and over!
We went for Restaurant Week. The service was great and the food delicious. The selections for Restaurant Week were interesting and provided a nice spectrum of their offerings.
Food was good, but quarters were tight. Voices from other tables bounced off the walls making it difficult to have a conversation with the people at one's own table. Certainly a cute place, decent food, but the noise level made it less than a pleasant experience. If the food had been fabulous or the noise level tolerable, maybe 4 stars.
We found this restaurant on a trip through Santa Fe a year or two ago. We now stop in every time we are in town. Food is amazing, wine selection is great and the staff are very nice and have been there for several years. A nice consistency on all fronts.
Good food and ambiance, service good too. It would have been nice to know that salad was included in the entree plate we picked when we made our order known to the waiter as the appetizer was either soup or salad and my husband picked salad, so he got two salads. He would not have ordered the salad first course had he known and would have had soup instead. Just sayin'
Very nice setting - comfortable seating, not crowded, was surprised at the quality of the middle eastern dish I got - terrific pita, hummus, and kofti kebab. Salad was good as well. Great choice for downtown lunch and likely dinner.
Great staff, Kira was wonderful, food was good too
Fun place with a wide selections of wines by the glass (reduced prices on some wines before 6 PM). Eclectic menu and what we ate was well prepared. Warm welcome and great service!
It was a lovely dining experience with excellent food, good service, and of course excellent wine.
Excellent food choices. Oysters were great and their bruschettas are worth it. Service and wines good. They remembered our occasion and celebrated it appropriately. Class. Seating is nice but bar area too close to door. Well we asked for seating there so our fault. Not much they can do about it though since this is Santa Fe and space is limited. Fantastic restaurant otherwise. Will go again for sure to go through everything in their menu.
The waiter didn’t give us the special menu for the night. Service was inattentive despite our early reservation. Despite the wait staff knowing we had a show to go to, they delayed the last course so long we had to have them box it up instead of plating it.
A special occasion spoiled.
This restaurant is among the best places to go for lunch in Santa Fe. It has an extensive menu of good food. It is quiet and charming. Great wine list with reasonable prices for by-the-glass. Check out the parking spaces in the lot across the street.
Meal was delish! We started with the bruschetta 4, with the brie, artichoke, mozzarella, and ahi tuna. For the main course, I had the crab cakes that were huge and very good. My wife had the Branzino fillet which she also enjoyed. The restaurant was small and as a result, you could carry on a quiet conversation easily. It wasn't inexpensive, but we were celebrating our 37th anniversary, so it was a special occasion. We will be back!
Wow. Lovely space, attentive service, and delicious food. My husband and I went for a quiet, romantic meal and were very happy.
I have been here twice. Although expensive, I believe the wonderful staff and ambiance of the restaurant make it a cozy and valuable experience. We will be back again during the next special occasion.
Early Valentine’s Day
We enjoyed a really lovely dinner here. The food was amazing, service was great, there were so many other things we want to try. We'll be back on our next trip to Santa Fe!
Fantastic place....most definitely our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe
Great food as always. Service was very good and the prices are a little on the high side
We love this place and visit most Saturday afternoons
The food was good, but it did take a longer than necessary time to produce 2 salads and 1 grilled sandwich, I thought (15 minutes from time of placing the order). Important to tell the server you are on a limited time lunch if timing is important to you.
Brussels sprouts caesar was tasteless, French onion soup cold.
Excellent service in a cozy space. Low noise level. food very good with a wide variety on the menu. would definitely return. Good deal on wine by the glass. Have only had lunch here. Never had dinner.
We never miss the chance to visit when we are in Santa Fe. Always friendly staff, great food and service, cozy and inviting ambience.
This was our first time at this place. Really enjoyed. Food was very good. Staff was exceptional. However, with wine and dinner (prix fixee), the total was a bit stiff. Still, we plan to go again.
Amazing. Love this place
The food is great!!! The place is very cozy and service was excellent!!!
Great food and great atmosphere! The duck confit from the Prix-Fixe menu was excellent and the sweet potato soup appetizer was superb. The warm apple tart and cinnamon ice cream was a nice finish to a great meal. The atmosphere is quiet and homey and they also had live music with a man playing guitar lightly in the background. We would eat here again which is the best review we could give any restaurant.
Food was only fair. The Brussel sprout Caesar salad didn’t have much flavor, the dressing and croutons appeared store bought. The fried chicken was cooked well, but the breading was tasted like sugar had been added. Service was attentive, but not friendly. The ambiance was rather loud and the tables are crowded in a small space, so conversations are easily overheard. It’s probably a good place for a glass of wine and a shared appetizer, perhaps at the bar, but I didn’t feel it was a good value for the dinner experience.
