TerraCotta Wine Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Excellent ambience -- especially on patio. Food can be good, but is erratic. The meal I had last week was excellent; the same meal this week was over cooked -- not just one item -- two items. Maybe a different chef? It was early, so not busy -- so there's really no excuse.
We ordered from the prix fixe menu; portions were generous, and we especially enjoyed the house salad and the yogurt/fennel/pea cold soup special. The key lime pie was amazing! There is also an extensive wine list which offers a nice selection of wines by the glass.
Service was friendly, helpful, and efficient; although busy, the restaurant was quiet enough to
be able to carry on a pleasant conversation.
We have had both lunch and dinner here on several occasions; parking can be problematic during busy seasons of the year, but we have been able to find street parking within walking distance. There are also several nearby pay parking lots.
After much research, decided to try this restaurant. We were seated right away (we had reservations). First off, noticed amazing looking meals being served around us. Decided on entree and salad. We were not disappointed however the sea bass serving was small. Great wine and dessert Would definitely recommend and return. Service was great as well.
The service, wine and food were stellar. We chose a wine from the weekly offerings list. It was a French Bordeaux blend. Full-bodied and delicious. Had a delicious pear, bleu cheese and pear salad and the mussels in ale broth as appetizer. My husband loves mussels and he was very happy. We shared the lamb kebab. I would get that again in a minute. Lamb was so tender and tasty. The waiter was so friendly and efficient. We felt very well cared for.
Great find on a recent visit. The menu is eclectic so we went with the bartenders suggestion and opted for the summer prix-fixe menu. I'm glad we did. The brisket was smoky and delicious. My wife was equally pleased with the pork tenderloin medallions; moist, flavorful and nicely presented. Impressive wine list with a number of notable by the glass selections. Service by Emily was excellent. We will be back.
Met friends at the restaurant after a concert. Soup special was fabulous and I loved my lamb kebobs. When we wanted to get a glass of wine to try before ordering a bottle, waitress gave us a taste then recommended a similar wine that was better and it was. Look forward to another opportunity to go their when visiting Santa Fe again.
The first time I went here I loved it, but this time was so disappointing. The onion soup was cold and the Italian picnic was boring. The cheeses were cheap and lacked variety. The roasted garlic was cold and underdone. Service was good, but I will not be returning.
We were attending a concert at the Lensic and picked this restaurant as it had good reviews and was within walking distance of the concert.
Both the service and the food were very, very good. They were very prompt in getting food to the table, and we found it delicious.
I live in Santa Fe and took visiting family here for a nice evening meal. Great food and good service. My dish, the Euro-burger with truffles and brie, was amazing and cooked perfectly. All the salads were delightful and tasty with the right amount of dressing. The waitstaff was very friendly and responded happily to a few special diet requests. Great wine list. The dinning room has lovely intimate spaces including a back patio area. Highly recommend!
Went for dinner with friends. One vegetarian, one pescatarian among us. We all had a great meal and very nice wine selection. Great ambiance. Location is good- a bit outside of the plaza area so is quiet area with better parking options for evening dining. Staff is patient and courteous and very knowlegable.
Nice atmosphere and good service, but the food was well below average. Entrees were uninspired and lacked any creativity or complexity. Overall they were bland and seemed "dated". My server was unable to come up with a nice full-bodied, fruit-forward red wine after 4 attempts. This is completely unacceptable for a "wine bar". Plus the wine was excessively overpriced. Dinner for two came out to $150 with tip, so I expected something much, much better. Will not return.
This is the place to dine before attending the Santa Fe Opera (as we did), or another theatrical/musical/intellectual event in our interesting city. Four of us enjoyed a glass of wine (I love their Spanish Albariño). We dined on delicious salads (steak/bay seasoned shrimp) and had a comfortable and quiet corner table. Getting there at 5 meant we were the first ones and had superb and friendly service by Alana(?...sorry). Tables filled up as we left, in time for our prelude lecture at the Opera and a relaxed and beautiful evening, so magical in summer Santa Fe.
Good service but mediocre food. Odd, herbal tasting onion soup. Bruschetta comprised of tomato sauce with melted cheese, no basil and couldn't taste any balsamico. Wedge salad came with salad dressing comprised of blue cheese mixed into mayonnaise. Overall, very disappointed with a restaurant that was rated so well. Will not return.
