Went for restaurant week and it was such a great price for the meal and the experience! The chef came out and was so friendly and even topped off the bacon on my husband’s broccoli cheese soup—yum!
Food was delicious. However, we waited over 30 minutes to get our food after we finished our appetizer. Waitress never checked on us during that time.
This place is great! Intimate and delicious dining....outstanding service that is attentive yet not overbearing. A hidden gem off the plaza!
Excellent food. The wait person disappeared for a while when I needed more water, but she finally came back and filled up the glass. Schnitzel plate was fantastic! Filled Begnets were mixed. One was excellent, one was too dried out, and one was half excellent, have hard. Still tasted great. Excellent value. Biggest problem that prevents 5 stars is that the parking is terrible. Mostly reserved lots and no-parking streets in this downtown area. Spent 15 minutes looking for parking!
Great service, food was excellent
Our first visit and it was great! Very comfortable, cozy, romantic. We’ll be back
The quinoa stuffed bell pepper featured broccoli and cauliflower: delicious. The cinnamon ice cream is a special treat.
We were looking for a full dinner menu at 4 p.m. on a Saturday afternoon and found this place on Open Table. Small and quiet which was perfect and with a full menu including starters and a range of entrees. Lots of excellent choices for wine by the glass. We had the french onion soup, casa salad, and shared the beef tenderloin. Everything was delicious and the portions were generous, so we did not go away hungry. Limited parking but we did not mind walking a couple of blocks.
We can always count on Catherine and her staff to provide an enjoyable visit. The food is perfectly prepared and the service is attentive.
Great wine list and food! The waiter was helpful in suggesting wines.
Enjoyed it so much I just made a reservation for 10 folks for a Friday night!
We try to eat here every visit to Santa Fe. Good food, good service, and outstanding wine list!
Delicious dinner with wonderful service We highly recommend this bistro.
Always love the food, people and atmosphere. A Santa Fe gem
We love the diverse menu, good wine selection (and great happy hour), and especially the friendly wait staff. There are still menu items we are looking forward to trying...
Stopped off on our way to Taos because we were STARVING and wanted something that was different. We were glad we did.
We were greeted by our server and host at the front door. Smiles and good attitudes all around. We were seated in a tight little corner booth, cozy but a bit tight. Nonetheless it worked just fine.
Ordered off the prix fixe menu - I had the Shepherd's Pie and my wife the Pork Schnitzel. I started with a soup - cheese/broccoli and my wife the salad. Both were very tasty and just the right amount. I'm not a fan of huge appetizer/starter portions. The mains were HUGE and so very tasty. Couldn't finish either but not because of taste, just quantity. I completed my meal with the trio of beignets and my wife the apple tart. Again, definitely up to snuff.
Our server was very attentive and plates were cleared quickly and efficiently. Banter was on the light side. We left very sated and with a plan to come back for more. The only reason for the deduction of one star was that I expect a particular level of expertise and presentation. While the food was very good it still needed a little push to the next level. So don't let this review prevent you from trying what is a very good little restaurant. We'll definitely return.
An amazing menu to trigger and delight your senses!
There are many dining choices in Santa Fe, but you have to try Terra Cotta Wine Bistro.
They will give you an amazing dining experience
Terra-cotta is one of our go-to places in Santa Fe. It is small and friendly--not fancy, yet sophisticated. It's a nice change from the many New Mexican places in Santa Fe. The food is freshly prepared and is usually excellent, with nice vegetable sides and lovely salads. The planked salmon is particularly good. There have been disappointments from time to time, particularly in Italian dishes which my husband has ordered, which tend not to be flavored correctly.
We were visiting from out of town and ended up dining twice because our 1st experience was so great!
