We loved our dinning experience at Terzo in large due part to the yummy food & our outstanding server Ron. The homemade pita & humus is a must have - the pita is warm & pillowy soft & the humus is creamy & flavorful. The chicken spiedini

I went with two girlfriends on a Friday night before going out. We ordered what we thought would be enough food, but left very hungry by the end and had to get pizza later that night. The food was quite tasty, and the wine list was better

Excellent food, lovely cozy atmosphere, friendly service, but the prices!!! Terzo takes the "small plate" concept to a whole new level. The plate are REALLY small, which is nice because you can try many different things, but they should

Pros: Excellent, unique dishes

Cons: Small dishes at huge prices

Buyer beware! Unfortunately, this is another San Francisco restaurant overcharging for their wine. No, I don't mind if restaurants charge 2x to 2.5x retail for their high end wine or even 2.5x to 3x retail for their low end wine. But

I've been in town for over 80 years and I have got to say that Terzo is far and away the best wine and Tapas joint in town. You cannot replicate the food and service you get from the chef co-owner Mark Gordon and his professional staff

Pros: Great food and great service -- especially the bartender, Michael

Cons: Imagine my surprise when I found that all the wait staff had shirts on! Tapas, not Topless!

Truth be told, the design is nice, warm and at some level inviting. The customer are... well, for instance the lady next to me during dinner reminded me of Michael Jackson. But some people like that. So ok, let's talk food... wait no.

Pros: great place to spend a lot for a little... also great place to find the address of a plastic surgeon (if you're into Michael jackson)

Cons: music too loud!, butter is the 'secret' ingredient, preparations are dull, Small plates, mediocre staff

I really wanted to love this restaurant, but the food was so salty it was almost unbearable. Even something simple like sea bass with garbanzo beans was drenched in what I am sure was an organic, mediteranean sea salt of provenance. I'd

Pros: Delicious Tapas, Excellent Wine Selection, Pretty Room

Cons: getting very popular and can be crowded on a weekend

Anyone who complains about the portions here does not understand Tapas; they're meant to be small and shared. Two of us had five items: Hummus, Ranch beef, Chicken, Bruschetta, and a side of Onion Rings. They were all delicious and served

This place is overrated. By small, they really mean small, and meals are unimaginative. Our server was very disruptive - kept coming over and even took our check before we left the table. We felt rushed. They don't bother providing any

When they say Small Plates, they mean it! And those are the only options. We are not big eaters, but after 6 plates we were still hungry! Also, DO NOT order the Cheese for the desert( I forgot the name) It was horrible and
