Pretentious food combinations that were off-putting. One senses that the chef is trying hard to be creative, but a few more straightforward dishes would have been welcome.

Also, one paper menu at a table for two, simply ASSUMING one of the two [senior citizens] would be familiar with “scanning” with her iPhone, forcing her to admit her “failing” before obtaining a second printed menu. Insulting. Degrading.

Never again, nor will I recommend to my “doddering” friends...

We waited 30min for someone to take our drink order and finally had to flag down another server. We had to ask for utensils, which only granted us forks - no napkins or knives.

Finally another waiter was flagged down for napkins. The service was not up to par especially given that there weren’t many other tables.

We had a wonderful dinner at Terrain. The server was fun and attentive, the food was spectacular. We even got to finish the evening by splitting an ice cream sandwich.

Took my daughter to Terrain for her 21st birthday and everyone was so gracious and made a wonderfully big deal about her birthday- complete with dessert and a happy birthday candle. We were unrushed and allowed to open gifts etc. Our waitress was really helpful in accommodating my special dietary needs and helping my daughter pick her first cocktails....a wonderful experience

Honestly, I've been to Terrain/Devon 3 times in the past several months. Everyone is suffering with Covid restrictions, etc....but Terrain/Devon cannot seem to get their act together. You're just not prepared as you should be. My sister and I had a reservation---were even there a few minutes early---were asked to wait as 'our table wasn't ready yet'....,We sat (well beyond our reservation time) and saw 3 tables be seated before us----walk ins! We should just have walked in---and not been subjected to the threat of $25/person charge for not keeping our reservation. (That sucks by the way--you have plenty of people that want tables, is that necessary...I think not).

Not sure if I'll make much effort to come back there.....your Glen Mills cousin is much better organized and the waitstaff much more attentive.

Thanks

Terrain is an amazing place to go for delicious and healthy food and cocktails, as well as a beautiful ambiance! The staff was very attentive and friendly. They are doing their part of keeping diners comfortable and safe, and even to the details of having little pouches to stash your masks while you dine.

The food was spectacular-from the quinoa fritters, the bowls, and the chocolate terrarium! The cocktails are light and refreshing. The beautiful decor just adds to the great experience we had.

This is the perfect place to get bite of healthy yet filling foods. Looking forwards to dining there again very soon!

Food was very good and the waitress was good but we had to wait about 45 minutes for our entrees. Only 2 of us and since our reservation was late it wasn’t that crowded, so it seemed odd we had to wait so long.

Great place to get together with friends or family. I got together with friends I hadn’t seen in months, and it was the perfect place to do just that. The food and drinks were wonderful, and the atmosphere being surrounded by plants makes the whole experience come together! It is a unique environment, and one that I would love to experience again!

We truly enjoyed our dinner at Terrain. My spouse and I both ordered the 3-course set menu and were pleased to see that each course was beautifully plated with high-quality ingredients and great flavors. Our friends ordered from the regular menu and enjoyed everything. We chose to bring some favorite bottles, and the corkage ($20 per bottle) was handled smoothly. The covered patio was open on the sides and well-heated. We're looking forward to our next visit!

Terrain has, without a doubt, the best management/customer service I have ever experienced in a restaurant (or any business, for that matter). Brooks (gen. man.) and Molly (Devon man.) go far far above and beyond to ensure the best experience possible.

We had dinner on a Thursday night at 5:00 and sat in the outside room with removable plastic walls. It was wonderful -- very ventilated and we were the only occupied table at the time. Our dinner was delicious and our server was very friendly and attentive.

We have eaten at Terrain multiple times. But the experience at the Devon location (our second time) has been terrible. We started off well with our drinks and bread - our waitress was good. But the experience went downhill from there. It took over 45 minutes from when we ordered (within 5 minutes of sitting down) until we received our food. We also ordered two appetizers, and they did not bring them ahead of our dinner. I ordered shrimp and grits, and it was awful. I generally like the trendy food combinations that Terrain offers, but I would never order or recommend this dish. The flavors don't work, and the grits were not cooked properly. If you want to eat at Terrain, go to the Styer's location.

Two of our meals were not cooked properly. Meat was very tough. Changed to different entrees but had to wait while two others all ready had their meals. We were given an appetizer on house as we waited plus they comped our two meals. Also gave us two desserts on the house. Management came to the rescue and we were treated fairly in the end.

Have been to the other Terrain over a dozen times & had the best experience. Unfortunately had a terrible time tonight. Service was pretty miserable. We consistently went 20+ minutes without contact from our waitress. Never had water. Had to wait ages for drink refills. And our food took forever.
Once the food actually came - everything was overcooked but then cold? 3/5 were inedible and the 2 edible ones weren’t good.
Then we had to have the bill revised twice!
Incredibly disappointing from a once favorite spot.
