 (Atlantic Canada)·Dined on October 21, 2017

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.

The filet was absolutely wonderful as well as the pork chop. Appetizers were very good as well. And, you can bring you own wine! Mashed potatoes need a little work. Will definitely 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.

The brie starter was disappointing, but the pork chop made up for it!
I did not care for the horseradish mashed potatoes.. they were tasteless.
The peach cobbler was good, but the Clumpies ice cream stole the show.

Not sure if my expectations were too high, but I was disappointed with the "Chef's Table" offering. Meat was overcooked and wine was sub-par. Although we had a really nice waitress, she knew nothing about the menu items or the wine. All in all, we had a good experience, but the food was just "ok." I would say go for the regular menu over the Chef's table experience...maybe that would help with the quality of the meal?

Hosted my brother and his wife, in from Atlanta where they have dozens of 5-star places from which to choose. They adored everything about Terra Mae: the hidden, quiet intimacy, the drinks, the Charcuterie, main courses and desserts. Our server was attentive without disrupting our conversation. Valet parking was upbeat and quick. Adore this place. What a hit!

I don't think that i have ever had better service!!! The people (workers) there were GREAT!! Here is an example of what happened with our group. It was a birthday with 3 couples, & at the end of dinner someone was making a toast (another one) & my glass was empty. The waitress brought over a little sip of the wine that i was drinking & said you can't toast with an empty glass. That was the topping on the cake, no place that i have ever been too has done anything like that. A++++++ rating from me!!!! Thank-you for making the occasion a little nicer!!! The food was Fantastic!!!
