My mom and I both got the apple salad with beets and blue cheese. Not many beets, not much lettuce, and not many walnuts, maybe one in the whole salad.
A little small for the price.

The service was a bit delayed and I left my credit card with the hostess to pay for my table ahead of time and the server did not get the message and brought the check anyway which made the transaction less smooth than I anticipated. I was trying to treat my guests. The food was good, not great.

Terrain Garden Cafe is a must experience! It has a lovely tropical atmosphere and the food was great and had a beautiful touch. There is also a gift shop to stroll through after your meal. Was a nice place to celebrate my sister's 40th birthday. Love it!!

Food was exceptional! We have been telling everyone about Terrain. The ambience was wonderful and truly an unforgettable experience! Will definitely be back! Oh and the bread/butter was out of this world, we even bought some to go! The girl who called me in advance to confirm my reservation with me was not very friendly and even a bit snippy over the phone...she was explaining the covid protocol and I wanted to make sure I was understanding her correctly but she just kept repeating the same thing over and over in a short tone and wasn't kind of helpful. The front desk staff was good, our waitress was also not the greatest, she seemed like she was annoyed by every question we asked and didn't even introduce herself to us. We had many other very friendly servers though who came to our table though. The girl who walked us to our table was very friendly with the tattoo on her arm, she was very kind to explain to us about the fan overhead that would turn off. I think in the store part you could encourage your staff to ask people if they need any help or even just to smile and greet us as we are walking through the store so see if we had any questions. Overall great experience minus a few setbacks.

We had a great wonderful lunch for my sister-in-law’s birthday. We have not been together since the pandemic began, and we enjoyed our celebration all the more because of the gracious service, lovely surroundings, perception of safety, and last but not least, the delicious meal we shared. Thank you, Terrain, for such a lovely time we had together.

Excellent ambiance and service . Food was ok . Wish there were more choices and a bit flavorful . Have had breakfast couple times there . Excellent , but lunch bowls have historically been salty and ok . More items on Appetizers would be nice to be a repeat customer.
But definitely my 5 plus stars for the overall experience and for the staff . Nursery and the store are just beautiful.

I brought my friend on her birthday for brunch, and everything about the meal was perfect! I made the reservation far enough in advance that we were able to sit inside the greenhouse area. We both loved the caramel sea salt coffee latte. The wait staff could not have been more attentive, The servers work as a team helping each other out. Thank you for the nice touch of the lit candle with a cookie for the birthday girl!

I know the food will always be delicious at Terrain. But our service this past visit was slightly sub-par. First, the hostess was a little rude. I mistakenly made the reservation for 2 rather than 3. She was rather arrogant in pointing out my error and in telling me that although there was a table available for 3 that day, next time there might be a problem and I should be more careful (not her exact words, but that was her implication). Is scolding patrons the best form of customer service?

Also, there is a trend in wait staff to respond to a customer's expression of thanks with the words 'of course.' My view of this as impolite is perhaps generational (I'm in my 50's, our waitress was probably in her early 20's). More than likely she doesn't realize it might be wise to reconsider her choice of response when being thanked. She did a great job other than this--attentive but not overly so.

When making my reservation, there was nothing before 1:30 available. When we arrived
at 12:30, I told hostess we were there, if anything came up sooner than 1:30. There were several tables empty from 12:30 - 1:40 when we were seated including the one we were seated at. Once seated, though our waiter was fairly attentive, we had to ask for several things. Our main disappointment was the outdoor seating - no umbrellas to shade the very hot direct sun. In this time of much outdoor dining it seemed an oversight not to make diners more comfortable.

Four lifetime friends met here for lunch after not seeing each other for over a year.
The atmosphere was bright and cheery. Our server saw to our every need and our food was delicious and served in a timely manner.
We will return.

A nice variety of items on the menu for brunch, delicious food, nicely presented. Service was very good. Love the ambiance. It’s also fun to browse the shop and gardens. Some different and beautiful items. A little expensive but a nice treat for yourself or as a gift.

This was such a unique place. The ambiance is what made the experience. The food was delicious and catered to the plant-based group. However, for the price that we paid for food, I would have expected the staff to be extremely attentive and on point with quality customer service. Overall it was good service, but we did not see our server more than 3 three times. Your service should be just as good for your first customer as your last (we were a 7pm reservation) Given that the dress code is "smart casual" it felt as though the staff was underdressed. Overall we had a good dining experience and the ambiance was nice but I don't know that I will drive another 90mins for it outside of maybe a special occasion once and a while.
