    Service was poor. It took us 90 minutes to get food. Appetizers and salads were served after main courses. The comp’d the appetizers which helped. The food was ok but not spectacular. The ambiance was the best part—rooftop dining—but not enough to go back again.

    Terra Plata isn't what it used to be. The hostess was awkward. The service was slow. The cocktails were so-so. The food was fine. Used o be a favorite. I won't be making another reservation.

    Decent food but very pricey. The best item was the salad. Has to send back the fries - they were the overcooked dregs. Branzino was ok. Service was great!

    Horrible vegetarian options. Pasta in the pasta dish tasted like it was from the dollar store. Barely flavored or anything done to it, and egregiously marked up. Cocktails were good though, so at least i got a buzz.

    Always a grey option for shared plates and cocktails. The service can vary as it did last night. It took 10 minutes before being able to order a drink even though it was half empty. That being said, I’d always recommend Terra Plata as a great option.

    The food was excellent but the dining experience could use some improvement. All 3 of our courses were not timely spaced well and came out just minutes after each other. After our dinner was delivered, our server completely disappeared and missed out on us ordering another round of cocktail.

    I had a completely miserable dining experience earlier today. Came in at 10:45am for brunch and sat on the rooftop deck. The deck is gorgeous, but all of the tables are SUPER squished in and they play really loud club music. When we ordered we were warned that the food came out when it was ready instead of all at one as one expects for a meal. This seemed a little weird since it’s not set up to be family style dining but I didn’t think it was going to be a huge problem, except that my dining companion ordered the baked eggs which came out a full twenty minutes early from the granola and biscuit I ordered. I guess they just can't be bothered to coordinate dishes? When my granola finally my came out I really wish that it hadn’t. Everything was totally raw. It was horrible. No spices, the only thing that provided even a tiny amount of flavor was from the raisins/currants. It seriously seemed like someone just grabbed a handful from a variety of nut and seed snack bags from the grocery store and threw it into a bowl. And then sat around while baked eggs were cooked and brought to the table, and then sat around for another twenty minutes. My companion probably could have finished his eggs before my bowl of raw seeds were brought out. The biscuit, by the way, never ended up coming out. I don’t know if you were out or if our waiter just forgot, but having the dishes brought out nonsensically meant that there wasn’t an opportunity to ask about the biscuit until the bill came at which point I was starving and just wanted to leave.

    Mini-family reunion. Place was hopping! Took a minute for our table to get ready, but pleasant night to wait outside. Servers were all very busy when we arrived, but attentive and responsive as possible. Food was awesome! Everyone loved their meals. We had two vegans and a lactose-intolerant guest in the party but restaurant was able to accommodate dietary preferences just fine

    This was not the experience we’re used to at TP. Our sever seemed very disengaged as if he’d rather be somewhere else. Rarely checked in on us, didn’t pour wine into glasses, instead just left bottle on table for us to pour ourselves. He never cleared empty dishes or asked for them to be. We had to ask another server if we could get some empty plates & glasses cleared away. It definitely took away from the experience we are used to.

    Terraplata has wonderful cocktails. Perfectly balanced. The food quite good - fresh, well thought out and executed. And generous with portions! The charcuterie platter was the best I’ve had in a long time. The rooftop is a unique space to enjoy but it is popular and busy. Before I go on, I will say that everyone at Terraplata was lovely and doing the best they could. And it was good. However; as a result of popularity and busyness the service gets slammed so hospitality is a little lacking for that warm ‘ I’ll be back feeling’. Long story short, great place to bring people to show off a bit but maybe not so great for a cozy date night with great hospitality.

    Our food was delicious, but 75 minutes into sitting down, we still did not have our main course. When we mentioned to our waitress, she really pushed it back to us that we were almost ridiculous to think we would miss our upcoming show at 7:30. I would prefer to not wolf down a $40 dish. It's tough to work at a restaurant, but an apologetic tone would have gone a long way. We won't be back.

    Genuinely I never give a local restaurant a bad review, I normally give some feedback for improvement and leave it at that. But this place is not only a complete rip off but it's dishonest. They acted like they had no room for us to have a rooftop spot on our anniversary- when we both called and messaged ahead. And served 2021 wine when they advertised 2019. The rooftop had SO many open spots. I eventually was pretty appalled at this point and asked to be reseated, which our server obliged so that's why I am leaving one star. Our entree came out before any appetizer and it had two pieces of bread, one charred. Appetizers didn't come out till we were basically done with our meal. They mussels were ok but not for the cost and the horrible experience. Shishito pepper and fries came after we were already wanting to leave. Our sangria was weak, entree came 15 min before appetizers and no dessert in the world was tempting enough to stay. Risotto was sadly undercooked, with little flavor. No dish was a stand out in any way, especially with service. I have some amazing restaurants on the hill for a fraction of the cost, and I absolutely cannot recommend this spot if this is how they handle an anniversary dinner on an empty Tuesday night. Go to Taylor shellfish, osteria la Spiga, Liberty, Olmstead, Harry's fine foods or Carello and I can promise you'll have a better romantic evening!

    I had brunch here with friends. The service was a little slow and they seemed to forget my side order of potatoes until I reminded them and it came at the end of the meal. I ordered an herb scramble which seemed very small and bland for the $13 I paid. This might be a cool place to go for drinks for the ambiance and cool wood features but I would not eat here again

    The quality of food and service at Terra Plata has gone down and the prices have gone up. It used to be my go to for brunch but the service was really slow and our party’s meals came out staggered over a roughly 15 minute period. I’ll give ‘em another shot but I was super disappointed with this last go round.
