lovely dinner

We had driven by this restaurant the other day when it was closed and elected to come back today. Its small, only 8 tables, but lovely menu. Small but adequate wine list. They were able to make a vegetarian dish out of the chicken saba noodle dish by substituting tofu which my wife enjoyed. I had... read more

We went to the Terra Cotta Cafe with friends and we were all impressed. They have a great variety of foods and everything was fresh and delicious. Homemade desserts were also a treat.

This restaurant was an eye catcher and looked like a great place to have dinner. We visited the place Thursday, July 23, 2015 at 5 30pm. No one else was in the restaurant at the time. Unfortunately I had acquired a violent food borne illness, within hours after eating their pork chop dinner. I had to cancel our trip and... More

The halibut with three sauces was perfectly prepared. Juicy and fluffy. It's hard to find well-prepared halibut and they knew what they were doing. The portions are small, however.

Manzanita is a charming community with exceptional restaurants. Although we were staying farther south, the quality of the food in Manzanita was excellent so it was worth the drive each day. Restaurants in Manzanita generally have longer waiting times between placing the order and the arrival of the food because the food is prepared—not pre-prepared. Terra Cotta is an excellent... More

What a cute place! We walked there from our hotel, and it was probably a mile. But it was an easy walk with really cute houses to look at. The restaurant is adorable, and the staff really awesome. They were packed and and it was fun to see a few couples that obviously came often enough that they had their... More

We discovered this restaurant by chance: we were too late for the more popular restaurant a block away, and ended up very glad we had to switch. Positives: very fine original cuisine. Very reasonable prices for food and wine. Negative: menu choices limited (only becomes a problem if you return very often; we were in town for only two days).... More

This is a quaint cafe with an eclectic menu on the horizon that is a big change from the usual here. There is an Asian influence on the menu & lunch is going to be an option soon. The steak dinner experience I there with my friend was wonderful with a bottle of wine as well.

I can't comment on the food because we actually never got a chance to eat here. We were celebrating a 40th birthday and arrived at our confirmed (by a phone voice mail) reservation time only to be told that we never made a reservation. We played back the voice mail message, to the person who actually left it (Henry), but... More
