Terra at Eataly Boston

$31 to $50
Contemporary Italian
Located on the third floor of Eataly Boston, Terra is a unique restaurant inspired by earth and fire. The dining room centers around a wood-burning Italian grill, where the Terra culinary team cooks raw ingredients over burning flames, allowing the simple flavors to shine.

In every earthy dish, the fire’s smoked warmth rekindles our fundamental connection to the elements. Plentiful and playful, the grilled plates are perfect to share around the restaurant's rustic tables, especially when paired with seasonal drinks.

    A wonderful evening with fabulous service and a divine meal at Terra! Table was all ready for us at our reservation time, the wine was incredible, the food was absolutely delicious (we had the burrata, I devoured the lasagna, my bestie adored the butternut squash ravioli. We also had a few deserts though I can’t remember their names now, they were perfect). Cannot speak highly enough of the evening - it was a full house, and the volume was no trouble but it is a more lively atmosphere!! Our server was a gem. If there is any other high praise to be shared that I have missed - just know that Terra is a treat!

    Our second time in two weeks. This time we had gone to the Messiah at Symphony Hall prior to our meal and saw a number of other concert goers at Terra. We love the atmosphere, the staff is extremely attentive and the food does not fail. Hands down our new favorite place to eat in Boston.

    Green salads were excellent. Swordfish was only ok because it was served on room temperature puréed celeriac. Grilled meat platter shared by two was very good except squash was stone cold and roasted potatoes were room temp. Server should have advised us to order a vegetable side. We were disappointed that the entrees were served while we were still eating our first course. Desserts were excellent. Wine selection is good and sommelier was very knowledgeable.

    We ordered a salad each. Not great. Added shrimp for $16 extra. They brought 3 small shrimps on each salad. Ridiculous ! I asked for extra shrimp. They charged us for an extra order but gave us 1 shrimp free! A joke. I had an out of town guest, wasn’t impressed.

    the menu was limited...they were out of several dishes [it was a sunday in boston]. the portions were small but good. appetizers again were limited & some were certain not to be shared [too small for two people]. the tiramisu was excellent as was the coffee. the facility, all 3 floors is impressive. service was cordial & decent. it will not be a favorite due to the size of the meals, however, we will go back & re-visit again

    The food was admittedly quite good. They had a special 2 course Restaurant Fest menu for $32. The portions were about half of the normal portion size for the same item. The wines on the special weren’t as good as the food. The service was, for the most part, absent, though friendly.

    This was a memorable, absolutely lovely evening. Every dish was special and was superbly flavored without being overly rich. (Our main dishes were fish.) We were lucky to have a nice corner table, because the restaurant was almost full (understandably on a Friday night) and somewhat noisy. I felt that the music was unnecessary, or at least should have been softer. We got very good attention from the waiters; one even brought over a fish to show us before it was boned. We paid almost $100 per person, but it was worth it for this food and the surrounding experience.

    Hello, I reserved a table and I was excited to dine here since it was my first time. The thing I noticed is that the tables were way too close to each other and I kept having to hear a lady yelling at her husband next to me. The service was great and they were very attentive, I ordered a coffee, juice, burrata cheese, a grain salad & a ragú pasta, the burrata cheese was really bland and the bread that came with it was pretty bitter and the pumpkin that came with it was pretty hard, the salad was really tasty & then the pasta came, it was not hot, it was under salted and didn’t have much sauce. Out of everything I only enjoyed the salad & my coffee & juice, I ended up paying almost $100 and was not satisfied, I had actually asked someone that wasn’t our waiter to remove the cheese because it wasn’t up to par and they still proceeded to charge me for it, our waiter should have noticed we barely ate the food, and because the tables were so close together I didn’t want to say anything at the time.

    Ambiance is lovely. We have been to other Eataly restaurants before and this did not compare really. We ordered the signature mixed grill , which was expensive. Multiple different meats all tasted relatively the same. The pear-fennel salad was imaginative but the dressing was too acidic. Overall not a memorable meal but we will definitely try other restaurants at Eataly
