Beautiful decor food was so-so. They need to figure out if they want to be an Italian restaurant or Asian fusion.

Terra Nova is one of our favorite places. Always have a good experience and the food is delicious. One of the best times was when they had a fall harvest type special during restaurant week a few years ago. The cocktails they make are different and delicious as well. Highly recommend

Food was very good. It was a Sunday night, and there was a banquet going on so the parking lot was full. I did hear a waiter mention that they were short staffed that night, so our drinks and food took longer than normal to come out, but we understood. When the food did come out it was fresh and very good.

We usually love Terra Nova but tonight seemed off. First, our party of two was seated at a table set for five. We got moved pretty quickly without having to ask which was nice. Service was okay - had to ask for new plates when our meal came. They left us with only our dirty bread plates. Flies were around our food/table. Just not the experience we’re used to here.

We were disappointed with our most recent visit. Our server was great. The food was OK. It was not as good as in the past. The salad left a lot to be desired. The onion soup was on the sweet side. The Fisherman's Wharf had very few shrimp and the asparagus was rock hard.

The Main course came out it looked beautiful smelled great, but that was it, after the first bite all you taste was salt I mean a lot of salt. The server was not around just not worth my time or money.

We are almost always thrilled with Terra Nova … today our sushi was warmish so it did not taste right … I ordered the chicken tera nova which was phenomenal. We opted to eat outside and had the unfortunate experience of being overwhelmed with stink bugs (it’s the season apparently ).
Service was phenomenal. Drinks came out fast . We enjoyed our experience.

Dinner was delicious! We enjoyed sushi for an appetizer. Fresh & very impressed. My husband enjoyed the braised beef over risotto and I selected the crab spaghetti. Nice portions and leftovers will be enjoyed tomorrow! Our waitress was very sweet. We will surely return with family & friends. Great job Terranova

I've been there many times. Service and food has been consistent. Server was pleasant and attentive. Food was excellent at a reasonable cost. Atmosphere can be a bit load if crowded.

Wonderful place for a dinner out. Variety of food is amazing and everything we had was very good. I had grilled salmon, my brother had the stew and my husband had the poke bowl. All were delicious. I would have the salmon again and again. Definitely would recommend.

Overall disappointing . The noise level was very loud and hard to hear your dining companions . The appetizers were the saving factor of the dinner . The fish was way over cooked and the beef dinner was dry and tough while also drowned in too thick gravy that looked like it came out of a jar . NOT WORTH the price
Will not be returning

Service and food was good - not exceptional. But there was an abundance of fruit flies the whole time we ate and the wait staff were very aware of the matter but just tried to ignore it the best they could. I told the hostess about the matter and told her we probably would not be back - she didn’t really seem too phased. Disappointing for a meal $150+ for two people.
