A word from Terra Restaurant
Terra Restaurant - Fine Dining North of the Core- is located on Yonge Street at the 407.
'Terra is doing too many things too well to be ignored...the setting is glorious, the presentation dramatic, the menu luxurious, the wine list enormous and the service everything it should be..', Where to Eat in Canada.
Frommer's International Guide to Toronto stated 'Sleek and sophisticated, this restaurant feels as if it was air-lifted out of the downtown core...'

Diner Reviews
  • "We were greeted at the door immediately and taken to our table. It was our anniversary and we were treated to 2 complimentary glasses of Prosecco. We had also held our wedding reception at Terra and had an amazing experience then as well. We chose to eat off of the Sundaylicious menu. I got the caesar salad, striploin steak and creme brulee. My spouse got the hand picked salad, game parpadelle and creme brulee. Everything was delicious. We will be back!"

  • "Having eaten at Terra on numerous occasions one has high expectations of the restaurant. On this occasion, perhaps because it was a Sunday on a long week end, the meal was not up to the usual standard with the service slower than usual. The Sea bass was quite acceptable...but the cabbage carrot slaw garnish placed on the sea bass was extremely vinegary and did not enhance the fish and spoiled the wine."

  • "My husband and I finally got to try out this restaurant after living in the neighbourhood for how many years??? It was amazing. The ambiance was nice and romantic. Perfect for anniversary celebration or any other special occasions. The food was excellent. The portions were just right (as I'm not a big eater). Definitely will come back again."

  • "This is an expensive restaurant - about $175 for 2, with minimal (1 glass of wine) alcohol. Food is competent, good, but not extraordinary given the price. Lobster bisque is excellent. Service is excellent++. "

  • "Nothing in the north end of the city comes close to Terra for overall dining experience. The food is consistently wonderful and service is smooth and professional without being too sycophantic."

  • "We have been to Terra many times and have always enjoyed it. This time however was disappointing. We ordered from the Sundaylicious menu. First our salad was supposed to have goat cheese in it but there was none. When we told the waiter he brought out the goat cheese in small plates and we had to mix it into our salad ourselves. I ordered chicken for my main course. Some of the chicken was hot but the top portion was borderline cold. When it was time for dessert no one bothered to ask us if we wanted coffee or tea. No excuse for that. We experienced very shoddy service from what is purported to be a first class restaurant. Could be our last time there."

  • "Ever since my first visit to Terra I've always had a good experience. The food is good, excellent service and I like the atmosphere. We went to celebrate my mom's birthday and they gave my mom a plate of cookies with a candle that said Happy Birthday in chocolate sauce! This was a nice touch since they remembered my comment. The cookie tray was on the house. It's the little things like this that mean a lot and make the dining experience memorable. I'm definitely going back soon!!"

  • "We went for an anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. We were welcomed graciously, service was excellent, professional and friendly. The menu choice was very good and the actual food and portions excellent. We were seated a bit too close to the live music (singing guitarist with a bass player -- soft pop tunes) and found this just a bit loud. But the live music was unexpected, and nice!"
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "I have higher expectation in this place, decor is fine, live band is good (not too loud). Food is ok, a little too salty to my liking. with the wine they serve there, I expect to have better quality of food to be served. Overall expectation is so so. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "The food and service at Terra did not disappoint. Absolutely delicious. Their gnoochi is my favourite. We were a group of 10 and it was quite busy for a Wednesday night. I would do Terra every week but my bank account won't allow for it. Great food, great service and ambiance, just pricey."

  • "You always start with a great warm greeting followed by excellent service during a fabulous meal. Quality and service is a hard combination to turn down, especially for that special occasion. "

  • "My husband and I reserved a table after Mothers day and we were warmly greeted. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. It was my first time there and will most certainly return"

  • "I had received excellent service and food quality. It was an outstanding experience. I recommend an order of calamari and tiger shrimps for appetizers. I have ordered surf and turf, and sea bass for entrees. As for dessert, the assorted dessert option is a good portion for sharing in group of 2-3 people. "

  • "A regular at Terra. Always exemplary food, service, and attention to you having the best experience dining."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Simply put, Terra was acceptable, but not all that interesting. It was fine, but not a fine dinning experience."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "We had the smoked salmon crepe and foie gras for appetizers, the rib eye steak and sea bass for mains. The appetizers were excellent. The seabass was nicely prepared, delicious and fatty. The steak was really TOO salty, but it was cooked well and juicy. We topped this off with the chocolate cake. Terra is great, but you do pay for it. Overall an excellent meal."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Terra was fantastic - the service was above and beyond, so friendly and helpful. but the most amazing part was the FOOD - to die for! we had the foie gras, arugula salad, bison steak (my husband) and ostrich fan with risotto (me). everything was exceptional, and it was fun trying something new and a little 'different', but that was done so well. it is a top of the line restaurant, but be warned, it is quite pricey! worth it though, everything was so delicious and beautiful. a great place to take someone for a special event or treat!"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "1st time!! From service to food everything was great. Servers were polite and professional. Service was efficient food met every expectation!! Delicious!!!! Restaurant became busy never felt pressured to have to leave as we were just lounging around after dinner! Definitely go back and definitely recommend"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Have you ever been some place where the server makes you feel like an honored guest? From opening greeting to stopping by the table just as the food is being served to the check close out, our server could not have been more gracious! The food was excellent; but with the advent of Yelp, et al, excellent food is more readily accessible than ever before. Service now seems to be the more elusive quality for the restaurant-goers. If you would like excellent food AND exceptional service, I hope/trust you will be entreated in a similarly gracious way. (p.s. the only caveats to this place are 1) you might not be a fan of the decor or 2) the aggressive valet in the parking lot - if you can get past these two items you are in for a treat)"

  • "Sincerely the best service that my family and I received through the many years. Decorous & Welcoming Restaurant Their Tea Menu is unmistakably one of the most impressive ones. The Russian Smoked Tea is one of a kind, loved it. The desserts are phenomenal. Would come here every day if I could"

  • "My friend and I had an incredible time at your restaurant. The food was exquisite. We had the Ahi Tuna appetizer, which was phenomenal, and I was fortunate enough to try ostrich for the first time that night, also an amazing dish. The staff was perfect, consummately professional... Truly can not say enough about the perfect service we received their. And what a wine list! Will definitely be coming back."

  • "Terra used to be great (10 years ago), and it's probably still one of (if not the best) restaurants in York Region; but that bar is still low and others are catching up fast. We went for a romantic lunch which was nice but was marred by a horrendously salty bowl of pappardelle with braised rabbit and dandelion greens (pasta special). Separating out the dandelion greens which seemed to harbour most of the salt made the dish edible and not worth sending back. However, the Pan Roasted Potato Gnocchi was absolutely delicious. This is the second time I've been disappointed with Terra, and at those prices, I wont be back. In the light of day, the decor is horribly dated. The 80's just called, and it wants its rainbow flecked gold walls back!"
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "This was an amazing dining experience! The food was great, service was impeccable, great atmosphere and just an overall great experience. My husband and I went there for my birthday dinner and loved every minute of it. The music that started halfway through the evening made it even better!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The tables are too close together, so you end up sitting closer to the person at the next table than your dinner companion. It was so loud that I couldn't hear what he was saying over the noise. Lots of $$$ for an ok meal. Over priced. The value is not there."

  • "Terra was lovely for two reasons, the food was good and the ambiance and service are very good. Restaurant is a perfect size and conversation was encouraged by the placement of tables and by service. I could have done without the music"
