What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.6

It doesn’t get much better than having a Spanish brunch on Terra Plata’s rooftop garden in Capitol Hill. We like it for Monday night paella too.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Screwed up our drink re-orders TWICE! ... One of the 3 "pates" on the charcuterie board was totally TASTELESS! Overall experience was just okay. The service was good, overall. Changed waiters mid meal, was sad. Was overall disappointed, sadly!

we started with the charcuterie pâté campagne, duck rillettes, chicken liver mousse, accompaniments , which we said we would not be able to finish, first thing we knew the plate was empty and we enjoyed every thing on the plate, we then has the leek gratin, to try something new and it was a very pleasant and enjoyable dish, the roast pig manila clams, chorizo, sofrito, hot smoked paprika, bay scented potato, chicharrón was tender and pork and clams had great flavor with a wonderful sauce, the chocolate cake for dessert topped off an excellant dinner.

Enjoyed dinner at a quintessential Seattle Spot. The apps were great and very filling. They had great wine selections by the glass, and our waiter was knowledgeable and very helpful. We ordered their signature pork, which we liked, but we tend to be more small plate people.

The room was full with several large parties who were quite lively! The food is excellent and small plates makes for good sharing. Made a poor choice with the opening cocktail but the wine list is pretty good with plenty of by-the-glass choices. This was our second visit and I expect we will be back.

I have run a Guest house here on the hill for 40 years and since this restaurant opened I have often recommend it to the right guesst. The feedback has usually been great. People seem to like the anbiance, the roof top deck, and the quality of the small plates. I had never been there myself so went this weekend with a chef from San francisco and we were very happy with the feel, the dinner, and the service. Thank You Terra Plata

Came here for my birthday for brunch, I reserved for a large party and a few of the girls couldn’t make it. I know how annoying that can be but our server was super sweet and took great care of us. The food was incredible and authentic, not the kind of brunch you can get just anywhere. Can’t wait to come back:)

My reservation was rather a last moment, I’ll be in that neighborhood selection. Great Choice - part of the reservation process was choice of seating; I went for counter rather than table. The venue structure was great, asymmetric bar / counter, lots of glass and wood, open and comfortable. My service person was Nathaniel D.; attentive and knowledgable,understood my concerns about savor versus heat in a dish. He recommended a great choice of white wine and I wrote it down so I could look for it at home: Big Salt. I went for the Green Chili Pork, delicious variation of chili verde with hominy. Touches of celery leaf and pickled onion were tasty contrasts. Generous bowl of this and I was good for the rest of the day. Keep up the good work!

We had a great time reconnecting with our dear friend and Terra Plata made that possible with good food, awesome wine and exceptional service. Our server Rachel was spot on and very helpful. Our drinks were never empty and our food was hot plus delicious. We recommend this place to out of town friends all the time. Plus we enjoyed Rachel’s outstanding service.

They were very accommodating when I informed them I'd be late for my peak dinnertime reservation. When we arrived they had us seated within 15 minutes. They apologized for the "delay" and gave the two of us glasses of champagne on the house! From there, the service was five star throughout the evening and the food was as well. My only critique of the entire experience is that the wooden chair I was sitting at for dinner was uncomfortable. And I really don't notice that typically. It was atypically uncomfortable and hard.

Overall 10/10, would repeat.

Unbelievable deal for Seattle restaurant week, but I’ll be back whether it’s that time of year or not. Excellent food, excellent service, and they really went above and beyond for our anniversary dinner (personalized menus wishing us a happy anniversary - who does that?!) along with a champagne toast.

Great cocktails as well - we plan to pop by more often just to sit at the bar top with a drink and dessert. Such a lovely atmosphere to sit and enjoy. Highly, highly recommended.

I have been to Terra Plata several times and never been disappointed. Our server really took great care of us and has a fun, upbeat personality, which we especially appreciated on a Sunday morning. The bloody Mary's delicious, coffee good and strong and the food really good. The pork dish was the best full of flavor and a good portion. I liked the granola and fresh fruit but thought the portion was on the small side. Also ordered (3 of us) was the shrimp and grits. Flavor was light but presentation beautiful.

Had an wonderful birthday meal here with family. The food was delicious but one of the best parts was the excellent service we were given by our waiter ( I believe his name was Kevin ). He was attentive without being overbearing and his easy since of humor definitely helped make our dinner more enjoyable.

We called to let them know we were running late for our reservation and they were appreciative and thankfully able to accommodate us. Our hostess and servers were both gracious and helpful as this was our first visit. Monday is Paella night 😃 and it was restaurant week, I could not have been more thrilled! Everything was delicious, everything! The wine selection was spot on, and we were able to have a wonderful visit over an equally wonderful meal. Please don't hesitate to go, try something new and ask for suggestions! 🧡💛💚

The menu online was different from that at the restaurant, but we had the mussels and clams (lovely), the octopus (tender and flavorful), risotto (cooked perfectly) and the black cod (delicious). We also had the beets and we thought an addition of some goats/sheep cheese and cut slightly smaller would have made a better dish, but it was the only thing we'd say of the entire meal. Cocktails were great. And the churros. Don't miss the churros! We were the last ones left and there was no pressure to get out the door, service was great and seamless. Will return!
