Large groups are welcome, and a special banquet package is available. No matter what your reason for dining, it's a good idea to make a reservation to save your spot.
This place had been recommended by several friends. When we got there, there was no one at the door and we were seated by a food runner. The overall service was very slow, but the food and drinks were quite good. A multi-table large party arrived as we were leaving, making it difficult to hold a conversation as they were loud and scattered everywhere.
We've been dining at Terrazza's for several years and have always enjoyed the food and service. We also like to dance if they have a band or DJ.
We had to leave early on Saturday because the singer, Chocco, was so loud our ears were ringing 20 minutes after he started. We couldn't spend 2 hours in that environment waiting for the DJ.
At first this was a good experience. Appetizers were good but meals were awful. After paying the bill we got chased out by the waitress thinking we didn't pay. Eventually the signed copy was found after much embarassment. This is an awful establishment and I will never go here again.
This was my second time and as with the first, everything was terrific- the food, the service, the friendliness of the staff. I highly recommend this restaurant and will certainly return again.
The food was terrific and the service was great from very friendly staff.
Sat in the dining area which was cozy. There was a band of guitars that would sing to individual tables, nice and fun. My bf ordered the steak skirt with fries which was delicious and cooked to the right temperature. I had the red snapper which came with a delicious spring mix salad topped with cubed tomatoes and s side of white rice and black beans. Only downfall that I personally has with the snapper was all the bones. Service was ok. After rejecting dessert server walked away. Took about 5- 7 mins just to locate him to get the check.
I took my friend here who is s very picky eater. He observed the menu multiple times, and was pleased with the food. He loved the music, ambiance, and drinks. Home run!! I have been here multiple times and will continue to go if they keep up the great work.
Made a reservation for 9:00 on New Years Eve. I called to confirm because the last time we went they had no record of our Open Table reservation saying the "the manager manages it on his his phone and he was not there at the time. Whatever. We were seated and the food was great always. Anyway again no record of our reservations and its New Years Eve! After speaking with the manager they agreed to accommodate us. We ended up sitting outside. OUTSIDE on December 31st in NJ! The only other couple there made the mistake of reserving on Open Table too. Now when I say outside we were under the roof but the only thing between us and the elements was a sheet if thick plastic. We could'nt hear the music inside and there was no ambience at all yet we still paid the NYE markup of $70.00 per person for $50.00 off food. I may or may not go back because the food is good but I will not be using Ooen Table to make the reservation. This is not a slam on Open Tabke. It was totally Terrazza's fault.
If you enjoy Cuban/Latin food, this is the place for you. Not only does the food have soul but the nightlife will bring you back for more.
Great food, music and ambiance. Its a great Friday night spot with good music.
