    Cocktails were fun and interesting. Food service was slow and food itself was less amazing than expected - good but not special.

    All the food was excellent! However service was very slow and the pace of food coming out of the kitchen was erratic. Request for extra bread to finish off a cheese board took 25mins, meanwhile dinner items were already brought to the table. Our dinner items came out at an irregular cadence with long waits between some dishes, but then two proteins together. It made for an odd pairing but then also eating alone items that felt better suited as accompaniments. Everything we ate was great and the upstairs patio amazing.

    Love this restaurant, but service was slow - this combined with the 2 hr time limit (which is fine) makes it hard to get out quickly - we waited FAR too long for 2nd round of drinks (30 mins+), making it difficult to hit the 2 hr limitation. Im sure it's attributed to staffing challenges, not big deal. We'll be back!

    Would absolutely not go back . Very inexperienced staff. Ordered 2 appetizers . One arrived promptly , Cocktails 15 minutes later. When the server was asked about the Gazpacho ( cold soup) twice , she said she would go ask . When asked about how long it would take her to ask , she wasn't sure when she would be able to ask. Finally, about 15 minutes after , it was served. Two minutes after that, they attempted to serve the entree but it was refused. We then asked to speak to a manager who also claimed to be a part owner in order to voice our concerns . Her name was Linda she was nice and tried to smooth things out . She was apologetic and said how short staff they were. She made no attempt to send anything over or to comp anything for us . She made a wine recommendation when I expressed an interest in ordering a glass of wine . Surprisingly , the glass of wine ended up on our bill . We also had a Birthday request listed that was never acknowledged . We are very experienced diners . We have visited Seattle many time and went to Terra Plata based on a recommendation . So disappointing . Please don't waste your evening . Especially if you are a tourist with limited time .

    It was probably the worst experience I’ve had in a very long time. The host was really rude and hostile to my friend on arrival. We ordered a cider that took 45 mins to come to table from the time everyone else got their drinks. They forgot three items and we asked four times for them and finally for the first two and never received the yoghurt to go along with the fruit bowl which was so disappointing. Took us so long to figure out what way we were to pay as the waitress was so unhelpful. Just not a good experience at all. I would never go back.

    I was recommended this place by a friend but would not continue on this recommendation to others. The staff were extremely passive and rude, the food was way overpriced and the service was terrible. Multiple food orders from our table of 6 was forgotten and when I sent back some eggs (they had chilli-flakes on them?) they still put it on my bill and passively wanted me to continue to pay for them... I worked in hospitality before and I understand how stressful it can be but it unfortunately went beyond that during my visit. I won't be returning and I won't be recommending to any friends.

    We had a pleasant brunch at Terra Plata. The service staff did their jobs and the food was ok. Service was slow. Probably 20 minutes before we were approached for drink orders. We were not asked if we wanted starters, although the order was taken when asked. It was quite a while before entre orders were taken. Food was unexciting. Could do a better job on spicing. Grits were over powered by the sauce. Should have been more grits. Food was served warm, not hot.

    We had dinner at Terra Plata before seeing Hamilton. The service was great. We were give a booth. Unfortunately it was a very warm evening and there was no AC, so we were sweating through the dinner. And our meals were good but the serving sizes were extremely small for what we paid.

    Do you want a neighborhood spot where you can pop in for a quick bit? Or a place with new items regularly on the menu? Or a place to be treated like both royalty and family at the same time? Terra Plata is all of those things! Tamara and Linda and their entire team create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, curate an amazing wine and cocktail program and prepare some damn fine food! This place has it all. Oh! And did I mention their rooftop deck for outdoor dining among their herb garden?! You will be so happy you went. Tell them Atina sent you!

    we had a booking at 7:30 and got our table 40 minutes later, with no apology nor offer to compensate having to wait at the entrance 40 minutes, which didn't help get in an ideal mood; with good food and wine, things got better. Prices have jumped really high, ie 28$ for 8 muscles and 4 clams is ridiculous; quality is there however, at an astronomic cost. I would recommend the food, not to book at 7:30 or 8ish however.

    The staff and setting at Terra Plata are great and they made my husband’s birthday special. From wine, appetizer olives, to fabulous green salad with blue cheese, and then corn risotto and halibut with corn coulis, it was all delicious and perfectly prepared. Brownie chunk with a candle was a nice finish. 530 reservation got us to 730 Hamilton at the Paramount.

    Loved the location and the ambiance. It was my birthday and they made a personalized menu for our party. They were very accommodating as we preferred the rooftop seating and they made sure we got out of there in perfect timing for our show at the Paramount. The food and drinks were all delicious. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely choose to eat at Terra Plata again.

    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.

    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)

    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.
