Great, as always! Kind wait staff brought us a cushion for the outdoor bench, and we didn’t even ask for one.

Food was excellent. The staff was very careful to properly socially distance and also seated us outside with extra space between us and other patrons. Service was very nice. Highly recommend!

We like this place and the food but on this day the food was not so great. Ordered shrimps with linguine, salmon, cucumbers, mashed potatoes, spaghetti linguine in white sauce sea food etc.., all of these dishes were over powered with a lot of oily or butter, the vegetables overcooks, otherwise the pizza and calamari were fine and the sprites were delicious .

The food was not up-to standard at all. Bucatini was boiled so much that it was splitting from the middle.

Burger was not good at all.

Brisket pizza was horrible.

Tiramisu was exceptionally well.

Highly recommend Terra and Vine! The menu has a great variety between apps, pastas and mains. Great wines to be paired with each different item (as expected with Alpana Singh at the helm). We had the salmon and pasta dishes and they were cooked to perfection. The burrata app is also a must.

It’s amazing how one poor server is able to ruin an entire evening. Fragile egos don’t belong in the restaurant business especially during Covid where owners should be grateful for every single patron.

Sat out on the patio. Felt comfortable with social distancing and wait staff were appropriately distanced. Heaters took the chill off a cool evening.

Cocktails were excellent, as was the burrata appetizer and the entrees. Good wine selection. We'll definitely be back!

Our server was good but most of the staff was dressed like they were cleaning the basement. Outside cushions were dirty. They dont clean the areas that are not part of the table. Woodfire pizza was greasy and looked like it came from the frozen food section of a grocery store. This place would be better if it were just a wine bar with small plates. Just too expensive for the mediocre quality of food. I blame management when restaurants have these kinds of issues.

I enjoyed the wine list and their retail wine shop. Alpana was helpful with some suggestions.

Very pleasant meal. Outside with good social distancing. Server was very friendly, helpful and efficient.
We shared a Wedge salad and there was plenty for two. Each of our pasta dishes was good and the price was reasonable.

First time at the restaurant. Outdoor seating was comfortable and COVID cozy (6ft apart, masks, etc.) friendly waiter. Salmon was moist with a subtle butter sauce with capers. Served with mashed potatoes that wasn’t overpowered with cream and I chose a side salad instead of vegetable of the day. My companion had the braised ribs sans ribs, potatoes and side salad. Meat was tender and somewhat fatty. The flourless chocolate mousse cake was delicious!

Perfect patio for social distancing during the pandemic. The food, as always, was great.
We actually came back for the second time in two weeks just to order another burger. And it was all that we expected. The Brussel sprout crostini appetizer was amazing. Do not miss it. Wine list is extensive, and they make a mean Old Fashioned.

We had a great time. We were seated outside. We had a last minute additional person that was accommodated easily. Our server was great and so was the food.

The only suggestion would be the ability to talk to a person. I made the reservation through T&V's website. I wasn't sure it had gone through and tried to call to confirm to find that they only communicate via email.
