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 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."

  • "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!"

  • "1st time!! From service to food everything was great. Servers were polite and professional. Service was efficient food met every expectation!! Delicious!!!!

  • "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"

  • "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)"

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "Great spot, great food and comfortable spot,perfect for business lunch where you want to enjoy great food!"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "Party of 6, 1 vegan. Had oysters, steaks, seafood, great salads and dessert. Chef prepared a special dinner for our vegan and he said it was delicious!!! We all enjoyed every morsel. Staff is friendly and knowledgable. Can't wait till the next time!!"

  • "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"

  • "I was quite disappointed with the service on this particular day. I had not dined at the restaurant for approximately 1 year. Our party arrived for a small outing for 4 people around 6pm on Saturday. We ordered arround 6:20pm and our food arrived at 7:25pm. 4 meat dishes arrived; 3 cooked to perfection. The other, ordered medium well, arrived rare. The food was sent back and arrived med-rare the 2nd time. Of course it was sent back again. While the rest of us finished our dishes, my sister received her dish at 7:45pm. On the positive side, the staff was very apologetic, courteous and friendly. Though they had a big miss on this night, the food, service and ambiance is usually great and it remains one of my favorite restaurants."

  • "overall are good but grill foods are too charcoal outside even though it was medium rare Steak perfect on the inside and on the Foie Gras outer layer heavily charcoal otherwise would be perfect."

  • "We were so pleased with our night at Terra. We were so warmly greeted & were treated so well from the moment we arrived until we left . The food was amazing, cooked to perfection and came very hot. The service is outstanding and we would recommend it to anyone. Thank you staff of Terra for a wonderful evening."
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "The live music was too loud for people sitting close to the band. The food I ordered wasn't done the way I had asked for, the servers are too much involved in your table, constantly pouring water or ask questions about your next order."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "Terra is a pretentious restaurant. Prices are higher than Toronto's finest eating establishments. The food is fine but did not make a lasting impression."

  • "There were 5 of us that attended the restaurant on Thursday and the food didn't disappoint at all. It was very tasty and we all had something different. The place wasn't packed like before but it was busy. We all shared some appetizers, ordered a main course and had either coffee or tea for dessert. We ordered cookies for the table and one creme brûlée. I was so full I couldn't finish my lovely chai tea. If you want a nice place to dine at for a special event, Terra would by my choice for sure!!!"
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "From the time that you enter Terra, the service and attentiveness provided by the staff is second to non. Food was served hot and all ingredients, garnishes used were fresh. Tried yo fish dishes, both cooked to perfection, flavourful and portioned well. Presentation was excellent. Ambiance was very relaxed, romantic. Although the wait staff were very attentive the service was unobtrusive. The entire evening was a real pleasure, I would definitely return to try more selections offered on the menu. The wine list was superb."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed the New Years dinner once again, service was excellent and even though it was the early seating we didn't feel rushed and spent over 2 hours enjoying our drinks dinner and dessert. Price was as expected 300 for the two of us but that was including ahi tuna and oysters to start, surf and turf and a half bottle of wine"

  • "It was a special occasion for my birthday and my first time there as recommended by my girlfriend. Did not expect much upon arrival as the décor was very traditional, a bit outdated to me. Food was excellent to my surprise, but find it overpriced in comparison to other fine dining establishments. I would love to dine here as much as I would like, but unfortunately, it would be considered only for the next very special occasion."

  • "We dined at lunch time in early December and the place was packed - parking was full and therefore Valet was required. The food is quite good and the service is friendly but a number of mistakes were made on our orders (there were 4 in our party). That said, the restaurant was extremely busy and the mistakes were quickly corrected."

  • "This was my second time going to Terra. Their food was excellent, and always keep up with their food quality. The service was excellent, and the waitress knew the menu inside out. I very like the ambience in the restaurant, and I would like to go back again and again."

  • "Had an awesome time. Felt as if I was out of Canada. New York city NY and Chicago style of dinning experience. Spectacular looking place. Romantic. Celeb atmosphere. My kind of style. Posted a review on your Facebook page including a pic with my spouse. Would have been nice if I could have a picture with Terra name in the background but the hosts told me that you don't have it although your web site shows differently. Will definitely come back. Have recommended it already to friends & family."

  • "Amazing experience! They took extra steps to make our anniversary night special. It was completely romantic! The food was incredible. Wait staff paid attention to detail and made us feel like we were the only table in the restaurant. This is a must try for anyone looking to treat someone to a special dinner. Our new favorite place we will definitely return!"
    Dined on 11/17/2013
  • "what can I say... Lovely ambience. very exciting to be there. Just always has that air of being so special. Waiters courteous and helpful. Very friendly bar tenders, and chummy "eat at the Bar" atmosphere, although we did not eat at the Bar. The choices on the Menu at Terra are always different and exotic. In a funny sort of way I would describe the food as sophisticated and opulent. The fish pasta dish for instance would greatly surprise you if you have not eaten there before. Just fun and delicious. In terms of a neighborhood restraint... WOW are we ever lucky! But in general terms it really is a wonderful experience, fun, and good food. Good luck to you all who get there."
