Our food was amazing. They had a problem with our appetizers coming out, but after I asked if there was a problem they quickly apologized and they came out. Just a glitch. They have us a free dessert and took the appetizers off the bill. Outstanding service! Highly recommend the Shrimp and Grits with an egg and bacon!

We had such a nice dinner in garden! The menu is small, but everything we had was very good. Two things I would do different: Arrive earlier so that we can shop (the store closed at 6) and take advantage of BYOB! Perfect place for a girls lunch or romantic dinner for two.

The atmosphere is spectacular! To be among the beautiful plants and the sun streaming in from the greenhouse windows is a truly remarkable experience. The staff was so accommodating to my mother and her walker. Finally, the food is exceptional! Delicious! Fresh! We will be back!

We had a marvelous lunch at Terrain! We always love to eat in the greenhouse because it is such an inspired space with all the plants--just makes us happy! Our server was Max and he was very attentive and kind, as was another helper from the events crew who popped over to make our experience wonderful, too!

I order the same thing every time because I love the blackberry ginger beer 'festive drink' and the quinoa, falafel, roasted chickpea and veggie bowl with tahini dressing and a fried egg on top!

I even think Terrain made my husband a convert to the veggie bowl because he kept sneaking bites! The flowerpot bread and lavender honey butter is divine! This time we finished off our meal with lovely little "1 scoop" wooden bowls of custardy vanilla and green tea ice cream! A delightful experience from start to finish! Thank you!

Terrain Cafe has become my favorite spot for a special occasion. The food is very good and it’s a bit pricey but not overly. The staff is friendly and our servers have always been very attentive. If you want something different and unique Terrain Cafe is a very good option

The ambiance, food, and service were incredible. BYOB was unusual for us, but worked out perfectly. Our waitress brought glasses and an ice bucket immediately when we sat down and opened and poured for us. Overall it was wonderful and cannot wait to return!

Food and ambience is excellent. Chai tea was amazing! Plenty of staff; however, did have to wait a really long time for dessert. Supervisor took the dessert off the bill and gave us another dessert as an apology. Made reservations for 12:30 and was seated at 12:45. Parties were lingering at our table. Everyone was kind even though it was super busy. Wonderful venue and garden center is a perfect spot to peruse while waiting for a table.

My wife and I have been many times. The food and ambiance is very nice. Our last few times the service has been fair at best. No wine glasses, no bread or only upon asking. Will not return to this restaurant anytime soon.

Great food, great service, and great company:) Forgot it was a byob but it was no big deal. I did the chef‘s table special for dinner the lamb chops were so fresh the kale and chorizo soup seemed more like fall but still so great on a the chilly night. The cheeseboard and ricotta toast were excellent as well!!

My friend asked for Camembert rather than goat cheese on her dish and was charged an additional $2. Considering the prices we felt the change should not have been an extra charge. We are only talking about a small amount of cheese.

This was my first visit at Terrain I love the atmosphere sat in the garden and love the set up
The food was great and the bread was amazing
I actually dine there 5 days in a row
Here is what I liked from the days I was there

Mushroom Soup
Spinach Salad
Pork Shoulder - my absolute favorite
Harvest Bowl I added Salmon - too much favorites I liked this one also
The omelette I added goat cheese - amazing
The French toast - the size depends on the rise of the bread but this is also great
The shrimp and grits I only tasted the grits with a sweet taste think it has some honey drizzle

This place has so many great selections and the staff is amazing

The Farro Bowl was my least favorite and probably because I like my food with lots of flavor


The blueberry cheese ice cream OMG I should have taken a photo

The spicy jalapeño pineapple drink 👏

Terrain is normally our favorite spot. We love the ambience and menu. But last night the quality of the food was really off: the hummus was dry and tasteless, there was NO CHEESE in our grilled cheese sandwich and our peach cobbler was cold.

The staff was nice enough to move me from the greenhouse because of the noise level which was exceptional that day. And we’re very accommodating!
What I didn’t understand was why with an empty dining room would you put tables of two right next to each other when they could be scattered

Loved everything about our dinner! Cheese plate was beautiful and delicious, could probably make a meal out of it. Entire group was thrilled with their choices; tuna, duck, and beef coulotte. Dessert was a surprise, ice cream served in a tablespoon sized container. Smallest serving I've ever seen, but at least it tasted good.
