The coffee and tea service was terrible. Our food came out before our coffee and tea and server brought iced tea instead of hot tea. Then the hot tea pot came out without the cup. And my coffee got cold before anyone refilled it to keep it warm.

Food was terrible and took over an hour, service was lackluster(although kitchen clearly has a lot to do with that), and overall I wouldn't waste the money. Just shop here and go grab a bite somewhere else.

Everything and service was, as usual, amazing! The hostess, however, was abrasive and downright rude. I have never experienced such at Terrain as we love to come there. No excuse as it wasn’t busy, and we were one of the first tables in for the day.

The ambiance was lovely at Terrain. I’d never been before and was super excited to try it out! My friend and I met there as a halfway meeting point while home during thanksgiving. The service all night felt a bit rushed. The bread came out with our entrees which was very odd. Then when we ordered dessert our check came before dessert was even put on our table. It seemed pretty laid back so I was confused why we were being rushed. Everyone was very friendly, it was just a bit odd. In terms of my food, my entree was really good. My main complaint is I got salmon added to the farro bowl and the piece of fish was smaller than my palm, which is what the typical protein size should be. I wish they’d been more generous with the salmon. We got the carrot cake to split at the end and that was fabulous. I would return but I’d hope for a better experience next time. It’s not like they were seating anyone else after us so it was just strange.

We had reservations and were seated right away. Very adorable inside and comfortable. It was not crowded. It took about 10 minutes for someone to come over and give us water and asked if we wanted something to drink. We ordered iced coffee and iced tea. After 15 more minutes the iced coffee showed up but no iced tea. 5 minutes later the iced tea arrived. My iced coffee was brought to me black, was not suppose to be, thank god it was cold or it would have been waiting for the server to come back so i could get cream. We ordered and waited, and waited, the table next to us came in about 10 minutes after us...they received their plates,,,we were still waiting. Finally after waiting a full 25 minutes after ordering, the food arrived and ...yes, cold. Cold eggs, cold sausage and room temp potatoes. The bacon was also cold but that was fine. I didnt enjoy cold eggs, potatoes and sausage. The table next to us came in 10 minutes after us, received appetizers (soup), and full plates of breakfast and a lunch selection, ate, paid and left while we were barely beginning to eat our food that was just brought to the table. It was a miserable experience especially after making reservations and paying these prices. What a let down!

Both our server and runner were outstanding! Salad was lackluster. Crumbled goat cheese would be better with the beets and clementines. I had to ask for the pistachios since they were initially left off.

My parents & I all got the wild salmon for an entree. Mushroom soup to start, and the cute flower pot breads with seasoned butter. All delicious and fairly priced! Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. After dinner, my Father went missing (84 yrs & some dementia) and all the Terrain employees were out searching for him. He was finally found, and I want to thank everyone there for your help & concern finding him!!

I cannot begin to explain how beautiful the setting is at Terrain Cafe. It was like eating in a nursery decked out with twinkle and fairy lights. Stunning. The service was wonderful and our servers were very attentive. I had the barbecue pork shoulder with sweet potato purée and collards. The pork was seasoned well and cooked perfectly however my greens were very salty. Maybe just a heavy hand last night. I wouldn’t say it ruined my meal. Mixed with the sweet potato purée and meat, it balanced out. My husband had the beef coulette and it too was cooked to perfection and seasoned well. I was a little jealous I didn’t order it myself! We finished with the chocolate terrarium and it was adorable and pretty good. I expected more mousse, but together, it was yummy.
