    Took a colleague there for dinner yesterday, and WHAT an experience! From the look from the street to the bathrooms, a very unique experience. We had a rooftop / outdoor seating and it was perfect, despite my thinking it would be tough to get good service due to how busy they were. Great staff there, as they kept up with demand, and always seemed to be spot-on with refill of drinks or whatever. I ordered the pork, the XXXX bread, and the brownie desert and a drink. I couldn't have been more satisfied, as was my colleague. Whenever I'm in the Seattle for work, this will be my go-to for dinner!

    Waited 45 minutes before standing up to stop one of the servers to take our order. No one ever asked if we wanted drinks. Someone poured out water and then we were on our own. Too busy? Too little staff? Poor service for sure.

    Our group arrived over 30 minutes but the staff were very gracious and attentive. It was great that they made us welcome as we waited. The best brunch that I have had in 10 years. Baked oysters and shishito peppers to die for.

    Good food and nice ambience for our family of 4. The food was simple and really fresh and doesn't feel oily or salty like in many restaurants. We had a great time and will definitely back (price is on the high side so probably can't afford to eat too often :P)

    Seafair weekend, and we had tickets to go see Hamilton at the Paramount. A lot of people had the same idea, so the restaurant was really packed. The service was speedy, and the food great, and we made our Showtime with lots of time to spare. Will be back again soon.

    Problem of high expectations. Told it was a share approach. But irritating things like burrata delivered almost 10 mins before bread. Bread only partially sliced and hard to break apart….

    The food is excellent, the space is perfect and overall Terra Plata continues the quality that the chef as achieved in all of her restaurants. Our only negative was the service in that our appetizer was forgotten u til we flagged the server down. Then there was another long wait for our entrees. It was a Friday so things were busy. However we arrived at 5:15 when things were still fairly quiet and it shouldn’t have been a problem. Still we enjoyed the dinner and don’t have any huge complaints.

    Maitre’d excellent, efficient and courteous, and helped out when waiter could not be bothered with us. We ordered via another waitress who helped. Someone else finally brought the bottle of very nice wine we ordered. Someone else took other orders. And maitre’d served our last course. Everyone has an off day and we are glad all the rest filled in for the guy who did not care.

    Had a fantastic birthday dinner last night on the upstairs patio. Terra Plata has always had a nice patio, and as an immune compromised person, I rely on it more than ever, as it’s difficult to find restaurants to have a nice meal. The patio has good ambiance, lovely plants, and was well heated, so sitting outside didn’t feel like a second class experience. The service is wonderful. and the food is reliably terrific.

    Terra Plata was recommended to me and my partner as a nice place to celebrate our anniversary. The reservation process was helpful and allowed me to setup our special occasion. When we arrived however the attention stopped. No one greeted us and I was forced to find someone to seat us. Once we were seated our menus were yanked away for our “special menus”. It would’ve been a nice touch if we were greeted properly to begin with. Afterwards there was very little attention given to our special night. All the servers gave off the vibe, “Im done for the night” This is an adequate place to show off to coworkers, but would not recommend celebrating anything special. The staff certainly won’t care.

    My water glass was dirty, the portions were small, the food was mediocre at best, the service was slow, and the prices were ridiculous. They apparently live off the attraction of the rooftop and skimp on everything else. It’s an embarrassment to Seattle. What a disappointment!

    Food was top notch just had to wait an extra 30 mins past our reservation to be seated and got our drinks later than some people who arrived after us (we were only a two person table). Other than that, would definitely go again!

    Decent spot with plenty of seating room and modern look and feel. However, the place is understaffed so we waited for at least 10 min before our waitress showed up. Her attitude was not welcoming whatsoever and probably because she was stretched thin on the night, plus she was training a new staff. The albacore tuna portion was the size of an appetizer. I don’t understand how they decide to put a meal like that on the dinner main course menu. I would increase the portion size and the price accordingly, but not stick you up with an appetizer. Lastly, the bar had not a single beer either on draught or bottle- how is that possible?
