    this is an awesome place to show your non-vegan friends how good plant based food can be. I think after this meal we actually had a convert .. someone who was hesitant to give up dairy cheese despite knowing its bad side effects. We ordered 5 items and there was not a morsel left among the 3 of us eating.

    Wow, we had Mother's Day brunch and it was Delicious! The lobster bisque soup was my favorite, but everything I tasted was so good. Everyone in my party agreed. I didn't know it was a buffet, but it was a nice surprise (need to update their website). Best brunch I've had in a long time!

    Our family of 6 wanted to try Easter brunch for the first time at Arterra. Food was good but not that much of variety. For the price of $65 per person, we had expected more variety of foods.

    My boyfriend and I celebrated Valentine’s Day here and the ambiance was so pretty! We were outdoors so it was pretty chilly, one of the waiters offered to move the heat lamps closer to us and was very hospitable. Our main waiter informed us that they were under staffed and it may take a while, which was understandable. He didn’t know how to pronounce some of the dishes and didn’t come back to see or check on us for an hour and a half. The other staff was kind enough to do his job for him and put in orders that also didn’t come in until and hour and a half. One bad waiter and not enough cooks scheduled made this a bad experience. Management did a terrible job with scheduling and preparing for this holiday. Other than that, some of the staff were really nice. The food and drinks were high quality!

    Food was good. Drinks were better. Service was just not good. I’m 5 years in the service industry so I can let a lot slide - but we only saw our server once. He never checked on us. The busses ans food runner took better care of us. I had to give find our server to give him my card to pay after waiting an hour and half after we finished. We also waited 2 hours st put table for dinner - so 4 hour dinner date….and I was informed that the kitchen was backed up….like I get understaffing, call outs…but this was just bad - our server was visibly upset and I get it but the manager was unhelpful. I guess that’s hotel dining for you…Tip: if the food will be more than 45 minutes late…tell the table….server should probably check on the table at least once once the food has be dropped off…could have changed the whole night.

    I didn't realize when I made the reservation that this is a hotel restaurant, so I was a bit surprised when we arrived. That was my bad, not theirs. Just be aware of that before placing your reservation. The restaurant itself was nice. I asked in the reservation that we be seated outside. I didn't realize that their outdoor patio was next to the hotel pool. The pool was somewhat busy so we had young kids running around yelling in bathing suits. All of that is fine and not really a big deal but the food was just not good. I ordered the 12 oz rib eye cooked medium. The steak came medium well and looked like it had been beaten with a mallet. The broccoli that it came with was okay. My wife ordered a couple of sushi roles. The Rainbow roll tasted like canned tuna and was not edible. The philly roll looked like it had been sitting out for a while and just did not taste fresh. When my wife mentioned this to the server, she just mentioned that she would "let the chef know" and nothing came of that.

    Christmas dinner, 1 other family in the whole restaraunt and we ask for a seat by the window they say no, the other tables are reserved. No one showed up at all. Pictures make this place look cool but completely underwhelmed, hotel by the freeway. I had no idea it was in a hotel. The food is average for american food, no sushi was served the night we were there which is why we came. It was a bummer.

    Too noisy when the restaurant is full. All hard surfaces. Nothing to absorb the sound. My steak was quite good but my friend was not so keen on the salmon she had. Maybe was just hotel food.

    Restaurant had 2 patrons at a table and 2 at the bar with no staff in sight on arrival. I waited several minutes to be seated. After sitting down, we waited another 25 minutes before going back to the kitchen to ask for someone to take our order. When we were finished, we waited a while hoping to catch someone walking by to request our bill but again, I had to eventually go and get a staff member to ask for the bill. The staff were nice, but their service was non-existent.

    We ordered a few sushi rolls before catching a concert. The food was good, but the service was horrendous. We had to flag down someone to help us at every turn. The same person did not come to our table twice. No one checked on us. No drink refills. Nothing. We had to flag them down just to pay the bill. I understand places are short staffed, but the restaurant was not busy and there seemed to enough people working. They were just unorganized

    We had not been for awhile, but once were seated the nice memories came back. Excellent, congenial service, great selection. We started off with chicken wings and fried calamari. Both fresh and excellent. I had the beet, cob salad with salmon, our guest had the caesar salad with chicken and my partner the Turkey Club. The portions were large. We could not finish. Highly recommend Aterra.

    We were only 1 of 3 tables on Mother’s Day. Had to get up on multiple occasions to find our server to get assistance. They did give a lovely chocolate strawberry to all of us moms which was delicious. Food was good. When we did have service it was good.
