TerraCotta Wine Bistro Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I were looking for a more eclectic restaurant than Santa Fe usually offers (spouse does not care for southwestern flavors/spices). We visited on a Saturday. I had made reservations via opentable and we were seated right at the entrance in what was a very long window booth with three tables fairly close to one another. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The menu indicates that they do not provide bread or water except by request FYI. The menu offered a lot of variety and several vegetarian choices. My spouse got the chicken pot pie (prix fixe with soup and dessert) and I got a mustard salmon dish. The french onion soup was exceptional, and they brought him a bowl by request and did not charge extra. We both enjoyed our entrees, I will say I thought mine was more "special" than his, with a delicious mustard sauce and grilled polenta. Both of us cleaned our plates, with portions generous but not insanely huge. The one slight disappointment was the dessert of apple tart, which was described as warm but came straight from the refrigerator. It was good, but not remarkable.
One note about seating. We were exhausted after a day in Taos and were fairly quiet. The seating was rather close together and we could clearly hear conversations from the table next to ours AND the table next to them. They were interesting people (isn't everyone in santa fe?) and while we enjoyed the guilty pleasure of overhearing their light, impersonal conversations about travel, it might not be the place to sit if you want to talk personal or private business. The other rooms seemed to have more spaced apart seating.
The food was delicious and more reasonable than many of the other places we went. While I'm sure it is known for its huge wine list, we didn't partake so I can't comment on that.
We were on vacation in Santa Fe and found this wonderful restaurant on the internet. Could not have been more perfect. If you get there before 6pm they have a happy hour that lets you select from a list of many many great wines by the glass for just 6$ a glass.
It has the best wine selection we had seen from our trip through the Southwest. And that should not take away from the food that was creative and delicious .
A lovely gem of a bistro across the street from Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe.
In a nutshell, this dining experience was as close to perfect as any that I have experienced. The only down side was my choice in tables! The menu was creative and our meals were properly prepared and delivered. The wine list was well done and reasonably priced. Service was pleasant, attentive but not overbearing. Thank you Terra Cotta!
This was my second visit to Terra Cotta. I returned because of the wonderful food, extensive wine list, and the atmosphere of cozy dining in an old home. I had the fire-roasted red pepper stuffed with quinoa, carrots, and chickpeas, and topped with preserved lemon coulis, served with roasted vegetables. I will be back again on a future visit to Santa Fe.
We were on vacation in Santa FE, NM and looking for a menu that offered meat and vegan options and assorted salads with wine options in the mix. Our dishes, fish entree and New Mexican flank steak on a field of greens were "requisimo." We were so impressed that we chose to dine again on our last day in SF;-). We will return and the proprietors, Catherine and Glenda will welcome U with their southwest charm!
We had a fantastic meal and got to bask in the attention of the proprietresses who regularly check in on you with genuine concern and lively conversation as to making sure your total experience at Terra Cotta is exceptional. It was and has always been... Exceptional. Cheers!
My sisters and I had both a lunch and, because that was such a pleasant experience, dinner at Terra Cotta. The food is fresh and tasty and the wine list is terrific. I had the grilled salmon with country style mustard and it was perfectly prepared and a generous serving. Very nice restaurant and a bit off the busy, beaten path in Santa Fe.
Location, food, service and ambience was great! Just thought the meal was overpriced. Ordered the lamb and, although,delicious, very small portion for $22 . I felt I could get the same portion or more at a Greek diner for a lot less. Cost of a glass of wine in Santa Fe is ridiculously overpriced. Enjoyed eating outside in covered patio. The classical guitarist playing inside was a great touch: wish we could have heard him better sitting outside. Key lime pie delicious!
We loved this place! The owner chef was especially friendly and the food was excellent. Not one of those 50 page menus but the evening's choices were diverse and creative. A foodie destination where you might see a star! We will return the next time we are in Santa Fe.
This was our second trip to TerraCotta Wine Bistro and we love it! The vibe is homey and romantic and the food is delicious. We live in Denver but travel often to Santa Fe and will try to make a stop here one of our traditions. We met the chef/owner and she was great. She talked to us about the history of the building, the ghosts of Santa Fe and her journey to this business. We always feel welcomed, the wine list is inspiring and the staff is courteous, knowledgeable and warm. Thank you!
My husband and I had dinner here our first night in town. It's across the street from the G. O'Keefe Museum. We sat in the back patio area where there was smooth jazz playing and a nice enclosed courtyard feel. I had cold corn/red pepper soup (excellent), pork tenderloin and key lime pie; my husband had the casa salad with pomegrante dressing (the best I've ever had), ratatouille(sp) and key lime pie. Service was great...food delicious, and a nice ambiance and introduction to town. It's a few blocks from the Plaza, so not too far to walk to from anywhere near the Plaza.
LOVED our experience at TerraCotta Wine Bistro! Wonderful, friendly staff...met Katherine the owner. Katherine is invested 150%. She delivered our meal, filled us in on some of her background and was a gracious host. BEST French Onion Soup! Great fresh food, great presentation, great menu and priced just right!!! Great location, just busy enough! Extensive wine list. Can't wait to go back! Hidden gem💓
It was our first visit to Terra Cotta. We were having an early "pre-concert" dinner. What drew me to the restaurant was the Schnitzel on the menu. Hard to find Schnitzel on anybody's menu in New Mexico. We were seated immediately in a pleasant room off an atrium, were well-attended by the waitress, she was very knowledgeable about the winelist, and the food was very very good. I had my schnitzel, with homemade red cabbage and potato salad - we were in an out in plenty of time for the show. An excellent find. We will return.
