    Our family always enjoys our time at Atlantic Fish. The food is always great and consistent. Oysters always cold and fresh. We have never had a bad meal. We like to sit at the bar hightops where the bartenders are friendly and quick to make drinks that are just right! Service is always friendly and food comes out quickly. Fresh hot bread first always make us happy!

    I had an amazing experience at Terra!! The service was great and fast, and the food… amazing. Everything from the bread to salads to pastas, WOW! I was thoroughly impressed. Not to mention how beautiful it is! We had sat at 3:30 and with the restaurant closing from 4-5pm for turnover, I was skeptical if service would dull down/ be more rush. Our server was SO nice and attentive and did not treat us any different no matter the time. Something I really value as a guest and with my experience as a service, it’s something I look out for. Overall, such a great experience at Terra and I can’t wait to return!!

    Great ambiance and fabulous menu. Our waiter, Edward, was very attentive. The watermelon cucumber salad was the standout dish but everything was absolutely delicious.
