    Beers were slow on arrival; last one never appeared. ‘Medium’ burger shouldn’t be near raw in the middle. Fries ordered with burger—received more chips instead. Appetizers were very good; halibut cooked perfectly.

    We had a great time. There was a misunderstanding about availability of the rooftop deck but the staff offered the "tall seats" on the shared table which worked out great!

    Awesome food. Huge portions. Wonderful wine list. Dining on the rooftop deck is the best. Our service got off to a slow start. Only two dishes arrived in the first 60 minutes. Then things sped up.

    Terra Plata is just a wonderful place full of life and joy. The terrace in the summer was absolutely perfect and the vibe in the place is wonderful. We enjoyed the Paella and the great cocktail. They were very busy, but the food came out quickly. Just go - this is a great place.

    The place was amazing! The service was fantastic, the roof top seating was lively and the energy was great. Over all I had a great time and the drinks were good as well. The food though was not impressive. We ordered the clam and muscles and could taste whatever cleaner they used to rinse the clams with. Maybe a fluke but, that was my experience.

    This was my first time to Terra Plata and it won’t be my last! It was a great space for me and my girls to get together. The food was tasty, they had a full bar and extensive wine list, prices were very reasonable and the staff was extremely attentive. We had such a fun night out! Highly recommend!

    Went here for Father’s Day lunch with wife and daughter. Noon reservation but not seated until 12:15pm. Ordered drinks and when they arrived ordered food (1 app and 3 entrees). 1 hour for the food to arrive! App came at same time as entrees. The server had checked in a couple times during the wait for food “how is it going?” I said ok, just waiting for the food. He said yah, they are slammed. For a place that requires a $50 deposit to hold a reservation, it sure looked like they booked too many seatings. Thankfully the food was quite good. They slightly messed up one of the entrees but we were too hungry to send back. This is my 3-4th trip here but the first time service was this slow.

    Ok, I get it, it was Father’s Day, but come on, it was Father's Day! We all knew what to expect so why wasn’t Terra Plata prepared? The kitchen problems and half assed reassurances from the servers were amateurish. The server kept trying to lower our expectations but there was no way to prepare for this. It wasn’t just that service was slow but the order in which the food came out was inexcusable. We got an order of plain scrambled eggs for one of the kids, 5 minutes before the bill came. And they charged us for it. A LOT! Plus, to make matters worse, I really really wanted to like this restaurant. I’ve been wanting to try it for years.

    Everything was fantastic! Started with the marinated olives - fabulous! Pan Roasted Chicken was top notch as well as trying my friends Taylor Shellfish Clams and Mussels, and Roast Pig. Clean Plate Club was fulfilled. We didn't get upstairs reservations so sat inside which was just as enjoyable. A wonderful restaurant and I will be back. Great ambiance. Easy walk to the Paramount Theater afterwards.
