The Zagat Review
Regulars "order a lot of small plates to share" at this Cow Hollow Mediterranean where chef Mark Gordon "keeps whipping up delectable new dishes" with "organic and seasonal" leanings; prices can be "fairly high" , but a "romantic interior" and "incredible servers" are part of the package.

We had an excellent experience here. The place is very beautiful, with a modern and warm design. The service was really good and we found the food delicious. They specialize in small sharing plates. Everything, from the humus to the calamari was really good. The price is in line with what you would expect from a nice restaurant in SF

Small plate style food. Nice atmosphere and food is great but not pretentious/overpriced. Good sf dining option

Terzo was a friend's choice and I'm glad to say we were pleasantly surprised with how good it turned out to be. I don't fancy $$$ places as the food usually is not up to the mark or price for that matter, but Terzo delivered, and it did that so well. We had a booking for 4 at 8pm yesterday and the place was quite packed for a Monday night - not too shabby ;) Place had dim lights (which I love) giving the ambience that romantic touch and was overall very neat and clean. Oh and they have gender neutral bathrooms - Super! Food was spectacular really. Everything was nicely cooked, tasty and good quality. Between the 4 of us we shared small plates of: - Hummus with house made pita $8.5 - Grilled Monterey Bay Calamari on a bed of lentils $14 - Tomato Braised Pork Meatballs $13.5 - Gnocchi Beef Bolognese on a bed of polenta $15 - Chicken Spiedini $14 - Flourless Chocolate cake $9.5 - 3 flavor ice cream scoops (vanilla, salted caramel and chocolate) Allow me to start with the hummus - simply delicious. That pita was oh so good! Calamari lacked taste (but that's calamari though...) but the lentils were such a welcomed addition that I really enjoyed this dish. Meatballs were superb and what a smart combination with the polenta. Gnocchi were soft, reach and paired so well with the bolognese. Chicken spiedini was really nice too with chicken being soft and the green chutney had a nice kick to it :). Last but not least, the queen of the night had to be the flourless choco cake - so rich and yummy! I might just be back for this! Service however wasn't the most pleasant. Nothing in particularly wrong with it, just not very friendly and warm so it definitely didn't add to our beautiful experience which is something I expect from a pricey place like this. Definitely recommend for group dinners so that people can share different plates or a nice date night. Will be back!
