Everyone of our entrees was excellent. My only comment would be to have some more simple desserts like ice cream that kids could enjoy, otherwise everything was perfect.

Typical of Terza: trying hard, but doesn’t quite cut it. Wait staff distracted. Table was cramped. Brought our salads and our entrees ALL AT ONCE. Really??! Calamari was good. Meals were basically all good. Caesar salad dressing missing garlic (too heavy on the anchovy). Basically, the food is quite good. The timing and service is off.

Had reservations at 6:30. Got a table at 7:00. Very knowledgeable staff. Appreciated the manager checking in. Manhattan cut is thick. Make sure you order it medium well or it will be served VERY red. The bread is delicious and served warm.

We had reservations for 6:30 pm but they were running a little behind but we were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation. We were moved to a booth over the original hightop table that I had reserved which was worth the wait since the hightops were a shared bench on one side and a chair on the opposite side. The food was well prepared and the waitress was attentive. Overall an excellent place that we will visit again.

We had reservations for a table and felt obligated to take the counter by the kitchen. We love coming here for the food but disliked being on the edge of the counter, where we could here the loud clanking of cooking utensils, plates being served, and wait staff coming in and out of the kitchen area. We were expecting more of a romantic setting. Our server was great and very attentive.

There seemed to be some confusion with seating us but we were sat in a timely manner.
We ordered off the Valentine's menu and we're surprised that they were out of a item. Considering it was the special and most people were there with a reservation it seemed it could have been anticipated the demand would be high. Having said that a generous substitution was offered.
Overall the food was very good and the service was fantastic.

My wife and I went to Terza for Valentine’s Day. They were clearly overwhelmed. The waitress was obviously awkward that we were an lgbt couple and never mentioned Valentine’s Day to us. The shrimp scampi was tasteless and the lasagna was all cheese. Won’t be going back.

Our meal was very good - wild mushroom pizza and chicken piccata. Service was a little slow from the bar - which is not uncommon. We were finished with our salads before our drinks arrived. Also, what happened to the bread basket? We only received two thin slices of bread - it used to be that a table received a basket of many types.

Reserved for 4:40 PM on Valentine's Day five days in advance. We were seated at a table in the highest traffic area of the restaurant. We asked the hostess politely to reseat us at a table against the wall, which was open at the time. She returned after checking with the other hostess to tell us "I can't seat you there as it's another server, but you'll be fine as the traffic over against the wall is just as busy". So VERY not true. Five minutes after we were seated another couple was brought to the wall table. It must be restaurant policy for the wait and host staff to call out "CORNER!" or "CORNER, CORNER!"whenever they approached the intersections of where we were seated. Some used a normal voice, most staff used their loud voice, as the music and voice volume in the restaurant was very loud. One hour after we were seated we became conscious of our waitress and the manager speaking together, behind us, about how long it was going to be before we vacated our table. We had literally just finished our dessert, and had 1/4 bottle of wine remaining. The bill was brought to us, and the waitress and other staff made their presence known to us until we finished our wine. I got up to put my coat on, and before I could get one arm in a sleeve there was a bus person removing our dishes, and washing the table off. I had to literally step aside to make room for her task. Yes, we know Valentine's is a busy evening, and restaurants want to maximize their proceeds, but this was ridiculous. The hour and twenty minutes we spent at the table was not overstaying.

Excellent food served piping hot. Service left something to be desired. Requested a table on the perimeter of the room where lighting is easier on ailing eyes, only to be seated in the middle of the room under LED lights. We were told they were expecting a large party to fill a number of empty tables located ideally in subdued lighting areas, however, during our meal, no large party materialized...
Wait person served cold coffee and neglected to bring our take home goodies back to us.
Well go again because the menu is interesting and the food quality was excellent. We recommend others give them a try as well. Perhaps it was an off service night.

Everything was fine overall. I ordered walleye which arrived hot and tasted great. However, the greens underneath were "cold". If a food item (the walleye) is a few minutes late, they should place new greens on the plate rather than serve it cold.

Terza is a favorite when in Rochester, MN. Kelly (manager) and her team never disappoint. They have great happy hour specials, terrific service and food that is simply amazing. Great selection of tap beers and wines along with specialty and local cocktails. All that plus nice, friendly people.

We are glad Terza opened, and we return there every time we are in Rochester for Mayo Clinic visits. We like the location right across the street from our hotel, especially in winter, and the food is very good. Also a large selection of beer and wine. We had very attentive service, and were allowed to split an entrée because we could not take leftovers with us. The salads were great, as was our walleye. The host tried to seat us in our preferred location but all of those tables were occupied, so we got another table we thought we would like. It is tucked into the corner next to the entryway, and every time someone opened the outside door, very cold air hit me. It would be good if the restaurant could add some kind of barrier between the outside door and the table nearby. The restaurant gets very noisy as it fills up, so we try to be there no later than 6 p.m.
