    The menu selection is really good. Despite having reservations and there being plenty of better tables, the man in the front tried to seat us in a 'not so good spot'. The food is good, not outstanding, not bad. The waiter takes the order and there is an assistant standing behind him writing it down, how weird!! The desserts were good. Overall seemed like a bit of a snooty ambience which we did not care for.

    I really want to enjoy this restaurant. great menu- but the management is pushing the servers to oversell and be overly involved in the dining experience. Pushing expensive Bottles of wine, pushing the number of drinks - taking our menu's away when appetizers were served and rushing us to order. Charcuterie very chintzy scallops delicious - great place but personnel need to chill a bit so that we can relax and enjoy the meal.

    Great place!! a little pearl hidden away in a Brookhaven strip mall!! Lovely heated outdoor dining patio in the back... Cosy little, well-stocked bar. Wait staff is friendly and knowledgable, food is very good to excellent. Somalier in residence. Ambience is lovely. Only thing negative was that we felt rushed by the waiter. Had an 8 pm reservation. Would consider going earlier next time.

    The last time we were at the restaurant, the only complaint I had was that the booths were too close together and uncomfortable. Boy! They revamped the booths and now there is ample space to enjoy one of the best meals in Atlanta. Our table had many of the items on the menu -- lamb chops, chicken, scallops, steak -- and no one wanted to share because our dishes were worth keeping all to ourselves. Starters and desserts are delightful. Nice wine list by bottle and by glass. One of our party has a food allergy and the chef and the waiter made sure there were no issues. We will be back again. And again. And again.

    One of the most beautiful evening dining experiences I've had. Dinner in the garden area is perfect for romantics and groups.. Heaters work well and makes for a perfect night with excellent wine selection and menu. Menu - all items are fresh .. Try the dinner rolls! Made on site and delicious.

    I went to Terra with my parents and we had a fantastic time. The food is all fresh, delicious, and carefully chosen and the wine list is the best i seen in town!! We started with the French cheese plate, which included quite a nice variety of cheeses and other things, like Meats,dry fruits and olives. I definitely could have eaten the entire thing by myself. When he brought over the plate, our waiter impressively recited all of the cheeses from memory by name, location, taste, and history. Needless to say, the service was impeccable. For another appetizer, my mom and i had the roasted scallops, which were quite tasty and included some nicely paired sprouts. For an entree, all three of us ended up getting the sea bass, which I highly recommend. The fish was perfectly cooked and paired with an Italian tomato sauce and vegetables, and we all thoroughly enjoyed them. We finished off the night with a lava cake and bread pudding, which were also really good. One of the nicest touches of the night was the complementary warm brioche that they brought out for us. The brioche was excellent and so nice and warm paired with some kind of infused butter. I think my favorite part about the place was the decor. The whole place was filled with garden-like paintings, prints, items, and sayings as well as actual plants(real plants!!). Outside, the garden was absolutely beautiful,and looked magical with the fairy lights....I still don't know how they manage to keep it warm for the dinners while it 30 F out side!!

    I took my husband here for his birthday and we were not disappointed. From the time we walked in to when we left, we were treated wonderfully. Our food did not disappoint either. We had the goat cheese appetizer and then we each had fresh fish which was amazing. We had a play to go to and unfortunately didn't have time for dessert or coffee - sounds like a great reason to go back!

    We found this little place tucked away in a strip mall! We moved to the area recently and it's our new favorite place. The patio is amazing and once there, it's hard to believe you're in a dumpy strip mall and the parking lot is just a few feet away and invisible from the covered outdoor patio.

    A friend recommended this restaurant and it could not have been a better pick. From the street a little skeptical, but once inside you were in a much different place. We loved the outdoor patio with the fountain. I think sitting in front of the fountain is the best table. Everyone was very friendly and the service and food were really great! I will go back for sure.

    I have been to this restaurant twice in the last week- once for lunch and once for dinner. Lunch was outstanding in every way- food, options, service. Dinner on Saturday night was a different experience. Food still good. Service was terrible, they were out of many items early on a Saturday night, and management did not seem at all concerned with the length of delays in seating or serving. Lost many points with me.

    A regular stop in our restaurant circuit. Both the service and food can be hit or miss. Fried brussel sprout appetizer very good. Lamb burger always good. Tried the mushroom panini for the 1st time. Expecting large portabella cap (as found at most places) - literally had 5 tiny bits of mushroom served on very soggy bread. Roasted potatoes nothing special. Servers need to find happy medium - they are either non-existent, or constantly interrupting our meal and conversation Not necessary to ask about meal 5 times. We are going less frequently these days - seems to be going down hill.

    I want to say it's AWFUL so no one else will find it but, alas, I cannot tell a lie. Been coming here for years and the "garden/deck" just gets better and better! Great peaceful settings, if you're lucky you'll get a frog serenade. Oh, and the food is good too. Met a friend for a light dinner, ordered the fig salad with gorgonzola and toasted walnuts. Well balanced, lightly dressed (and Gluten free!). Had a cup of the pea soup, which was to me just odd. Cold pea soup with mint. Well prepared, smooth and creamy but I just didn't LIKE it. Finished by sharing a delicious flourless chocolate tort/cake. I love this place!!!

    The lobster ravioli was not edible; we have had it in the past and it was lovely; this time we had to send it back. The risotto was not prepared well, it was mushy and now lacks vegetables that are recognizable. Last dinner there the risotto was good but the shrimp in the shrimp and grits was way overcooked. This has always been a favorite place for us to go and it was so disappointing.

    Had a nice meal with friends here recently. Ate in back patio which is nice. Inside would be very loud and cold. Food was good but service was spotty at best. Slow and inaccurate. Server got my wife's order wrong (pasta & shrimp order, she got pasta & chicken), then kitchen rushed the replacement, pasta over cooked. Rest of the meal was excellent, maybe a bit cold since service as slow. The crispy brussle sprouts were fabulous. Half price wine night made it better though :-)

    The food was fresh and delightful! I actually had room for dessert. The atmosphere could be very romantic except for the noise level. One note: I loved the background music playing; genre adult alternative, I.e., sting, dave Matthews, coldplay... The service was not what we are accustomed to. I believe that if you go after 9pm, they send 1/2 the staff home. We had to seek out our waiter on various occasions and we asked for bread with our meal which came at the end of it! Our dessert needed another scoop of ice cream, that took forever as well! Big disappointment with service. We will try once more because the food was worth repeating to give them another chance to redeem themselves for their poor service.

    Although my meal increased from okay (fig salad), to good (cumin crusted sea bass) to not-to-be missed (jalepeño-infused chocolate pot de crème), the service remained disappointing, pushy, and annoying throughout the evening. The biggest error, in a restaurant acclaimed for its wine list, was the server's inability to suggest a pairing for the sea bass, which he claimed is his favorite dish on the menu. The sommelier, reportedly, was on hand, though we never met him, and, after the server took his time to check with him, I eventually received a satisfactory viognier, though it was served without checking to see if I would be okay with that varietal. (Thank goodness he didn't bring a pinot gris!)
