What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.6

It doesn’t get much better than having a Spanish brunch on Terra Plata’s rooftop garden in Capitol Hill. We like it for Monday night paella too.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

We had a lovely time at Terra Plata and it certainly met our expectations. The thoughtful service was greatly appreciated- no detail went unnoticed. Thank you for a fantastic dinner! Ps - those potato chips are ridiculously good.

Though our server misheard my order BECAUSE of the noise level (my friend ordered the meat/steak meal, and when I said salmon, she thought I said "same" & brought me the meat order as well), when I finally DID get my salmon, it was absolutely melt in your mouth tender, with little to no fishiness!
Overall service, meals, dessert was quite loverly!

The good news is that most of the food we ordered was very tasty.

However, our experience was less than anticipated, especially for the price. Perhaps NYE was the wrong time to try Terra Plata. Despite indicating that we did not have any show to attend, we felt oddly rushed. Food came to the table in awkward spurts, servers, while friendly, seemed very harried and didn't have the band width to pay close attention to requests.

Sadly, while desserts were delicious, the coffee was tepid and an order of port was never served.

Not sure if we'll return as it was a very pricey outing.

Among the BEST food in Seattle. We keep going back because we can't find anyplace with better tasting food and food choices. We had 6 dishes among 5 of us and we were all in agreement that we couldn't decide which was the best dish, they were all EXCELLENT.

We enjoyed a terrific meal when celebrating a birthday, for one of the best meals ever in Seattle. Interactions with the restaurant team were outstanding, beginning with the friendly woman who called to confirm our reservation, then the greeter who seated us, and on through the pitch-perfect server who was attentive and knowledgeable without hovering. The special recognition given for the birthday celebration was much appreciated. Each menu item selected was perfect: unique cocktails and wonderful wine choices, albacore starter, perfectly roasted brussels sprouts, delicious beets, and perfectly prepared duck breast. In the casual yet elegant setting enhanced with excellent lighting and outstanding service, the food shines. We are eager to return!

we started with the charcuterie pâté campagne, duck rillettes, chicken liver mousse, accompaniments , which we said we would not be able to finish, first thing we knew the plate was empty and we enjoyed every thing on the plate, we then has the leek gratin, to try something new and it was a very pleasant and enjoyable dish, the roast pig manila clams, chorizo, sofrito, hot smoked paprika, bay scented potato, chicharrón was tender and pork and clams had great flavor with a wonderful sauce, the chocolate cake for dessert topped off an excellant dinner.

Enjoyed dinner at a quintessential Seattle Spot. The apps were great and very filling. They had great wine selections by the glass, and our waiter was knowledgeable and very helpful. We ordered their signature pork, which we liked, but we tend to be more small plate people.

The room was full with several large parties who were quite lively! The food is excellent and small plates makes for good sharing. Made a poor choice with the opening cocktail but the wine list is pretty good with plenty of by-the-glass choices. This was our second visit and I expect we will be back.

I have run a Guest house here on the hill for 40 years and since this restaurant opened I have often recommend it to the right guesst. The feedback has usually been great. People seem to like the anbiance, the roof top deck, and the quality of the small plates. I had never been there myself so went this weekend with a chef from San francisco and we were very happy with the feel, the dinner, and the service. Thank You Terra Plata

Came here for my birthday for brunch, I reserved for a large party and a few of the girls couldn’t make it. I know how annoying that can be but our server was super sweet and took great care of us. The food was incredible and authentic, not the kind of brunch you can get just anywhere. Can’t wait to come back:)

My reservation was rather a last moment, I’ll be in that neighborhood selection. Great Choice - part of the reservation process was choice of seating; I went for counter rather than table. The venue structure was great, asymmetric bar / counter, lots of glass and wood, open and comfortable. My service person was Nathaniel D.; attentive and knowledgable,understood my concerns about savor versus heat in a dish. He recommended a great choice of white wine and I wrote it down so I could look for it at home: Big Salt. I went for the Green Chili Pork, delicious variation of chili verde with hominy. Touches of celery leaf and pickled onion were tasty contrasts. Generous bowl of this and I was good for the rest of the day. Keep up the good work!

We had a great time reconnecting with our dear friend and Terra Plata made that possible with good food, awesome wine and exceptional service. Our server Rachel was spot on and very helpful. Our drinks were never empty and our food was hot plus delicious. We recommend this place to out of town friends all the time. Plus we enjoyed Rachel’s outstanding service.
