About Terra Máe
Terra Máe translates to “mother earth,” a name that perfectly captures the far‐flung inspiration for our five‐star fare. Always fresh, and often locally sourced, our menu isn’t dictated by region or style; we are restrained only by our imagination and our adventurous spirit, our favorite flavors and those we’ve yet to discover. New American, new again.

Terra Máe Ratings and Reviews
We travel often to many cities: NYC, LA, Santa Fe, Atlanta, San Francisco. We are from Chattanooga and yet I cannot give enough accolades to Terra Mae. It was my wife's birthday so we wanted a great evening. Vickie our server was simply the best. We will return often to Terra Mae.
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.
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 :-(
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.
