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.

A little “trendy” for my taste. Food was fresh but very salty.

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!

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.

The service was the big letdown. Very slow and not an attentive server...she didn't seem to care about our experience. She didn't go out of her way at all to be polite. The coffee and food came out slow and my avacado toast was cold and mushy by the time it was delivered to our table. Our espresso drinks were served in a tea mug, assuming they ran out of dishes? Not what I would have hoped for or expected for this special occasion brunch with my mother.

Terrain and staff never disappoint. The service, food, and ambiance always impress. The staff is very attentive and makes sure to provide a personalized experience for their guests. My wife and I always look forward to going to Terrain to eat at the cafe and go shopping afterwards. Would definitely recommend to friends, family, or anyone that has taste buds.

I’ve been there a couple times before and had a great experience. This meal was so slow to come out of the kitchen, there was a shift change with our waitresses so we kind of fell off the radar and the food just wasn’t that good.

Beautiful surroundings. No loud music to compete with. Table setting is far enough apart to add to the tranquility of the cafe. Food is very simple but beautifully prepared. All the fresh ingredients add to the dining pleasure. Highly recommend this cafe.

I am from New Jersey, so I was running a little late, I called the restaurant and they helped me push my reservation back. The staff is very attentive. Our food was taking a little longer than usual, however, the staff was very thoughtful and offered us a little snack. Very pleased with the service. The food was delightful, and very filling.

This was our first visit after hearing great reviews from friends. The setting was very comfortable and unique in this converted nursery. We really liked that vibe.

We started with the quinoa fritters. Very light, crispy, and hot served with yogurt and lime. Quite a treat. I had the wild mushroom frittata and my wife had the avocados toast. Both excellent. The real hit was our shared dessert. A mixed berry cake with fresh raspberries and cumquats with exquisite cream cheese whip.

Will definitely go back. We also enjoyed shopping and strolling the grounds.

Terrain has been a popular place to meet and dine with friends for many years. Always good food, pleasant atmosphere, reasonable prices. Only the virus kept us away for a while. Sunday brunch was excellent.

I have always been a big fan of this restaurant. The food is consistently good with plenty of healthy options. The services is impeccable. The ambiance in the garden room and the outdoor seating can't be beat. They take all the proper precuations for covid and outline their safety measures on their website (which I appreciated). I'll be returning (many times).

Food was good. Service was very slow and left a lot to be desired. We checked in early and were seated 15 min AFTER our reservation time. Food and drinks also took their time coming out. Our server cleared our entree plates and then never came back. Eventually we had to get the attention of a hostess to order dessert. A different server came over to take the orders and give us our check.

Terrain is a beautiful setting, and is considered a lovely place to eat. But the reality is that the service was slow and not particularly caring, the food was poor to fair at best, and it was expensive and a poor value. Our lunch group of 3 was seated 30 minutes later than our reservation. We ordered 2 lunch salads and a sandwich; the salads were bland and dry, the salad dressing was used extremely sparingly and we needed to ask for more. The ingredients were also very minimal. The sandwich was a creative concept, a grilled cheese, and sounded like it would also be good, but the filling ingredients were also very minimal and the bread was cut too thick and grilled very dark, was hard to eat. We had iced tea that was not offered to be refilled. It was my mother’s birthday, so we ordered a chocolate flourless cake and vanilla ice cream to share. It was small, hard, and very cold (just out of the cold storage) and once again the ice cream was really minimal, one very small ball scoop. We were disappointed and I was embarrassed honestly. Our bill was $77. Terrain could be so much better. The servers attitudes could be more interested and caring. And the food reevaluated to be better, especially for the price.
