Great farm-to-table fare in a cozy ambience.
Was not a fan of the food, but for the charcuterie plate which was good. The wild mushroom soup was foul and made two of us ill.
Not very good. The service was slow; the menu extremely limited; the food average at best; and the price was way too much. We will not go back unless it’s cheaper or improved.
Went during restaurant week. Options available on the RM were good and of reasonable size.
Great dining experience and wonderful with my kids. Sat outside on a beautiful summer day.
We ate outside this visit and it was a lovely evening in Bethesda. The food was interesting and delicious once again. In fact I took half of my main course home because the portions were so generous.
Great food and ambiance
Inventive menu; everything was delicious!! Lovely setting. Reasonable prices. Attentive service. We’ll be back!!
Beautiful outdoor dining
Comfortable, friendly, great place to talk without raising your voice. Lunch menu has interesting variety. Will become a favorite place for lunch in Bethesda.
Great outdoor seating options. The waiters were wonderfully accommodating to our food sensitivities. When we got one item confused (it wasn't their error) they graciously made another plan. The burger was to die for said my brother.
I absolutely love Terrain! It's a wonderful, different, addition to Bethesda and its many restaurants. The organic menu is delicious; the ambiance is beautiful (love the plants!); the staff is very friendly. I recommend it all the time to friends and acquaintances.
Excellent breakfast food, great coffee, and wonderful service
We enjoyed our dinner at Terrain. It was not busy, so the noise level was low which was brilliant. Service was excellent. The food is very good, although the kale salad was pretty blah - this is a creative cafe in many ways, so we hope they may liven up a dish like this. Avocado toast was delish! And very good burgers.
We had a really nice evening at Terraine after a movie at Landmark. Our server, whose name starts wtih a D....Demetrius? was so friendly and conscientious. He answered all of our questions and provided information that was new to us.....like how to mix a really good Old Fashioned. He even brought over the manager to share her recipe for a great drink. He was a terrific server. The food was quite good....a bit overpriced....but nicely prepared and expertly served. We'll try Terrain again and hope to find the same great service.
Always a pleasant experience, as the food is fresh and quite tasty, and the servers, managers, chefs, and all other staff are helpful and affable. We enjoy eating outside in their shaded and inviting space.
good for lunch with a friend, food was very good. First time I had the breakfast, second time a board with cheese and charcuterie. I liked the first meal better. The meat on the board was too greasy for me.
Yummy, and quiet, and reasonable. A trifecta!!
salad with salmon was disappointing because most of it was very strange lettuce.....
not worth the money and we won’t be back
I've been to the Terrain in PA, and was so excited to see that there's one now here more local in MD. I checked out Bethesda with a friend of mine, and we had a lovely time! Our waitress was so patient with us, and really allowed us to enjoy ourselves leisurely. The 'terrarium' dessert is AMAZING. I will definitely be back!!!
Good Ambiance, smart table toppings, creative menu, smart ingredients..... BUT
Lacking taste, flavor & the Umami factor.
Menu sounds good, wish it tasted just as good!
Went to meet a friend for lunch. The restaurant was almost empty. We felt rushed into making our selections. Ordered. Got our food which was excellent. We were ignored and treated in a surly manner the balance of our visit. Won’t be rushing back.
I want to like Terrain. I do. The atmosphere is lovely and I'm a regular Anthro shopper so I'm often there. It's only 5 minutes from my house. And yet. The food options are so... odd. Sometimes being different and experimental is good. But I haven't found one person (I'm a local 40ish female patron with a large social circle) who loves the food. Most, like me, continue to search for something they would order again. Others don't care enough about food (all my starving x-ray friends) to let that stop them from going bc the location is so good. Anyway, my hope is that someday Terrain Cafe will stop trying to impress all of us with their innovative ways of making a dish and, instead, will make their food taste so good that I'll want to order it again.
Early meal. Very quiet in the restaurant, which was pleasant. Servers quite pleasant. Food interesting and enjoyable, but slow to arrive. Prices a little high for a casual “cafe”. All told, a pleasant little place!
Very pretty. Noisy. Great food! I had the avocado toast, which was exceptional. But, prices are too high! Excellent service.
While our wait person was very nice, she was not very attentive.
Amazing quinoa bowl- I added avocado it. Beautiful presentation, delicious taste and hearty entree!
My friends and I had a wonderful lunch. The food really was outstanding, from the bread with lavender honey butter, French fries, lamb kofka, and other entrees. The mushroom soup was incredible. The wait staff was attentive but unobtrusive as we grabbed along. We all had a fabulous time and look forward to going back.
Interesting place! It wasn't very crowded on Sat night so I would like to go back for brunch/lunch or something when it is more bustly...
We had a knowledgeable server who spent time with us explaining the ingredients of a delicious cocktail and how several items on the menu were prepared. The menu is not long but everything we had was presented beautifully.
We didn't get our food after an hour of being there. We left. They were not very busy.
So great drinks and avocado toast amazing !
I found this place overrated for its quality and services. Generally speaking, foods and services were just ok- nothing so outstanding. Trying once is just enough experience-least likely to try again. Lady who checked us in was the least friendly we've ever met- very unpleasant and unprofessional.
So delicious! We arrived early and they let us sit and relax for a few minutes. Lovely bohemian asthetic with unique menu. Highly recommend.
Food is great but we’ve been three times now and the service is always very slow
Great spot to meet for lunch. Menu isn’t huge but the quality is very good, creative and tasty. Nice service, friendly and not intrusive. My only criticism is that the water they pre-pour is tap water - didn’t taste great.
We ordered 3 items assuming that the waiter understood that one was a shard appetizer (which we said). They all came at once. My medium rare hamburger was well done. They gave us a dessert for free which we really didn’t want. Not a good evening.
We really loved all 3 dishes that we shared. The fresh, local and seasonal ingredients made everything aste great! We will differently return .... and hopefully very soon!
Love this new charming restaurant in Bethesda. Definitely a great place for brunch.
Great for a girls brunch. Go for healthy eats and the fun ambiance.
