Prior to new owner, loved food and environment, decor. However service was very poor. Haven't been in a year. Total change now with new owner. Do not care for decor..midcentury modern. Almost creepy feel with manquins. Food was just mediocre. 10 oz steak is $50+. However, service was greatly improved. I'm very disappointed as I really love this building and history and want it to do well.

Overall it was disappointing from our previous visits here . Very limited menu with no specials to supplement. Only 4 entries available. Osso Bucco was delicious. Other food was good but nothing to get excited about.

Terra Mae is superb! It has a creative urban vibe... Chic casual... The food is likely the best in Chattanooga. Most any foodie will find the flavors dancing on their palate, and for the traditionalist, the filet can’t be beat... We can’t wait to go back!

No linen on the tables. The service could have been much better for the cost. Had to ask for utensils for appetizers. Server did not know proper wine service technique for tasting a $150 bottle of wine. Steak had a demi glaze sauce that was over powering and too much sauce. High quality steak should be a stand alone not swimming in sauce. The carrots gnocchi was the best thing I ate. The Thai Lobster Bisque was not creamy or thick. Good tasting just not a typical bisque. Coffee was average quality. $450 for four people...we expected better :-(

Went there for Thanksgiving.. they advertised a traditional thanksgiving meal. That wasn’t the case.
Turkey was dry. Filets were good, but everything is heavily salted.
Prices a little extreme for the quality. Not enough choices.
Won’t go back.

This was our third trip to Terra Mae. Food, drinks, dessert and all are creative without being overly trendy. We started with a goat cheese and pesto ravioli appetizer that was sublime. I had a wonderful lobster / seafood soup, and my wife had a Dwell salad that was garden-picked fresh fruits and greens. Like I said - nothing out of the ordinary from a concept perspective (I had a filet, she had grouper), but the sides and sauces were sublime. (The horseradish mashed potatoes were killer.) Then there was a chocolate dessert with chocolate / coffee ice cream and a fresh made caramel that was lovely. A highlight is their Temperance cocktail, which uses a smoked paprika rye. Delightful. Great staff - great service. There was a big table, so it was a touch noisy. We shall return.

Terra Mae is an unexpected gem in Chattanooga! We were visiting for a couple of days and, because of the reviews, decided to check it out. TM did not disappoint. The food and service were outstanding and the intimate patio perfect for a fall evening. If going, arrive early and go sit a spell in that richly appointed, dark and cozy bar before your meal. The whole experience is made more inviting by the interesting and colorful decor of the Dwell Hotel where Terra Mae and the Midnight Matilda bar are located.

We were there from 6pm to 8:15pm. Our food took over an hour to arrive. The sauce on a very expensive steak waa way too salty. Cauliflower augratin came out with the second course. All the beers were luke warm.

Just over all bad. I do not mind spending a lot of money on dinner but not when the food is sub-par.

One of the best dining experiences I've had in Chattanooga. Waitress and staff read my requests from the reservation I made and immediately catered to our needs and gave us some complimentary wine for my wife's birthday.

The hazelnut crusted brie appetizer was absolutely incredible.
Food was so unique and delicious. After eating here once I want to go back and try everything on the menu.
