    Greeting was slow and awkward, service was very friendly, food was excellent and atmosphere perfect on the back area for an enjoyable and relaxing evening. Steak was cooked perfectly and potatoes/vegetables sides were great. Pasta and chicken was cooked well but lacked flavor. We will definitely return.

    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 :-)

    What a great place! Even on a hot, sticky summer evening, the patio dining was wonderful, There are plenty of nonintrusive fans that moved the air around just right, and the vines and greenery make a wonderful atmosphere. Our meals were delicious. Highly recommend the lamb chops and fig salad. Will definitely return.

    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!)

    We have dined here many times and the food and ambiance is always outstanding. I prefer the patio where is mood is cozy and romantic. We had filet mignon - tender and delicious with a rosemary infused sauce and mashed potato, buffalo meatloaf - served with country style vegetables, pan seared sea bass with a tomato caper sauce and crispy baked chicken with vegetable medley. All was incredible! We paired our dinners with Duckhorn Decoy pinot noir. Fabulous! For dessert we shared the banana rum bread pudding with vanilla ice cream. Can't wait to go back! What a treasure!

    This restaurant is wonderful. The food is fabulous. I usually have the fig salad, but tried the Mandarin salmon salad this time. Salmon was cooked to perfection. The only problem? Our waiter. He was trying to be charming, but he managed only to be condescending. I ordered a drink, and my friend asked the waiter if it was good. He told her she could ask me when mine got there. We asked for straws. He said "all the ladies like straws". We got ready to order. Unasked for, he recommended several things that the "ladies always order for lunch." He was one more "ladies" away from a very unladylike cussing out. He won't stop me from going back, but I'll definitely ask for someone else's table.

    This was my first time there. There were 4 of us and we had a reservation. First, we had to wait for our table because they had 6 tables that hadn't been cleaned yet. Then, we waited over an hour to get our food. When we got it, all the dishes were lukewarm. The portion of the dishes for the cost was just sad. For a small place in a shopping plaza asking over $20/plate, there should be more than 3 small scallops or one pork chop on a plate. We asked for a manager. When he came over, he said, "The food is coming." and rushed off before we said anything. He later came back and tried to make it right with free dessert, but the overall experience will result in us never returning.

    Had a pre-theater meal there at about 6:30 on 19 July. Food quality for the appetizers, sides, desert, and 2 of 3 entrees was generally good, however service was inattentive and 1 out of 3 entrees was overcooked. After waiting 5 min for the waiter to come by and see how the food came out, we had to start eating. Only after it was 1/2 gone did the waiter materialize to see how things are. Despite apologizing, the waiter did not discount the entree, offer free desert, etc. In our view, that is the minimum that should have been done! Perhaps this is just a bad experience? If we had more time, we would've brought this to management's attention, however with showtime pressing, we had to leave in a hurry.

    This restaurant is fantastic. You will love everything about it. The location is unfortunate because it sits in a nondescript strip mall. On the upside there is lots of parking. If this were further up Peachtree Street toward Buckhead, I bet you couldn't get a reservation. Anyway, you will love this place.

    I took an old friend from out-of-town to dinner. I selected Terra Terroir for its consistently great food, wait service, and atmosphere. We dined on the patio and were not disappointed. We both chose the specials, tuna and lamb burger. They were cooked to perfection. We also shared the grilled brussels sprouts. Yummy. Our waitress was new, but informed and energetic.

    The patio is a lovely setting, though a little warm on a humid summer day. They have fans and there is a breeze, so it's not bad as long as you dress for it. They have a nice menu with a lot go variety. Our party enjoyed the roasted beet cold soup and the special BLT as well as the bread pudding with bananas for dessert. Service was a little slow given the small number of parties there, but fortunately we were not in a hurry.

    The service and the food were both good. And the prices were reasonable. My only complaint was that the seats were uncomfortable. I usually like booths, with their big soft cushions. But the seats were high, so my feet didn't rest comfortably on the floor. And the cushions were very soft, so you sank too far into them. But besides that, it was a great place.

    I'm beginning to wonder if booking under OT is worth it. Third time in the past few months whereour table was possibly the worst in the restaurant. The front room and main pation oozes with ambiance but we were walked by several open tables to the very back. Felt like we were eating near the dumpsters. Extensive wine list, lots of unique choices at only 2x average markup. Food was just OK, nothing memorable or compelling me to return.

    Terra Terroir is consistently excellent. The outdoor patio dining provides a great atmosphere and the wine list is creative and offers lots of options for both the adventurous taster and those that like the "tried and true" variety. I love to introduce friends to this hidden treasure in the Brookhaven neighborhood! They do very nice seafood dishes and the appetizers are always a favorite!
