Just last night, I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant with family from France and old friends. Our server, Ron, was awesome, with great recommendations and suggestions and when it came to trying to figure out what wine to order given that some in my group had pretty particular tastes, he was also amazing, choosing just the right...

Terzo is one of our favorite restaurants in San Francisco, and perhaps our biggest go-to recommendation for people visiting the city. The restaurant is probably best described as Mediterranean, but they utilize local ingredients (as great SF restaurants tend to do). For its quality, Terzo is very affordable. We recommend ordering several small plates and one entree (or just all... More

My friend who lives in the city wanted to eat here so they made reservations. Everything was delicious. The server was knowledgeable and helpful. We started with the humus and asparagus (split between 4 as appetizers). 3 of us got the Mahi Mahi and one got the steak. The Mahi was so flavorful and delicious, it was better than the... More

We were recommended to come to this restaurant by a local photographer and it turned out to be a real gem. Really busy on a Thursday night - we we were lucky to get a table straight away - which shows you how popular it is! Great atmosphere and all of the sharing plates were great, but a special mention... More

Went here for a double date and was very impressed--the small plates were all great and the ambiance of the restaurant was very nice. Definitely recommend it!

Recently my husband and I were treated to a most amazing meal @ "Terzo". Everything on the " Small Plates" section of the menu was delivered to our table, over the course of the evening, and it was one of the best food experiences that we have ever had. Each dish was absolutely delicious and left us anxiously awaiting the... More

I am eating (mostly) vegetarian lately after coming off a child-centric traveling diet that consisted of far too much beef, burgers, and fried things. Now that I am traveling alone, I am making up for it by consciously seeking out restaurants a picky, pizza-loving 11-year old would avoid like the plague. Thus, I ended up for a late dinner in...

Had dinner last night with another couple. Our first time there. We were very peasantry surprised as the outside of the restaurant does not reflect the stylish interior. The tapas were very good, especially the hummus and manakish bread, a typical lebanese specialty. The Moroccan chicken was delicious as well as the elbow pasta cooked al dente. The chicken skewers...

nice bar, good wine, great service. Many small plates for sharing. I keep coming back here. They have one table outside so you can bring your dog (and a jacket).

My husband, mom and I went to Terzo Thursday night. Our waiter was excellent -- attentive but not intrusive. The wine and food were top notch. Mom and P had small plates; I had steak. All very tasty. It is expensive, probably not more so than simlar places. Lovely experience.
