    We have eaten at Terrain Cafe numerous times in the past. We always enjoy it, in particular the ambiance and courteous service. Our waitress was fine but the hostesses were miserable. We had a 1:15 reservation and at 1:30 I asked when we would be seated as I watched group after group be called and given a table. I think people can understand a wait as long as the staff COMMUNICATES. They did not. And we’re clearly perturbed when you inquired. That set the tone for the meal hence the overall rating.

    The food is always fantastic and the setting is always beautifully decorated. Given this brunch is always crowded and the open rooms with glass ceilings can get loud. The busy and loud environment can affect the service but not from any lack of effort from the staff who are always pleasant and working hard. Often going the extra mile to make it a fantastic dining experience which it always is.

    I’ve been wanting to visit the cafe for a while now so was glad to snag a late night reservation for dinner. I love the ambiance there, so rustic and cosy. Maddie, our server was so sweet and attentive. Have reservations for a belated birthday brunch in December.

    Unfortunate experience at this restaurant which clearly lacked management oversight as it failed all the basics of service. The good: Very pretty restaurant and much anticipated our meal given our great experience in Devon. Apps were pretty well done. Presentation was nice and they came out in a timely fashion once they were ordered. The bad: we had an 8 o’clock reservation. We got there five minutes before our reservation. The restaurant was not even half full. There was plenty of seating but we had to wait an unusual amount of time to be seated not that big of a deal, but a sign of things to come. Sat down to tables not bused, dirty dishes and glassware sat on adjacent tables for half our stay. Once seated, waitress didn’t attend to our drink order for at least 10 min….so we drank water…waiting for a bottle opener for the wine we brought. Next, no wine glasses remaining so we could either drink your wine out of mason jars or champagne glasses we opted for the latter…but really? The dishwasher must’ve been broken or they just weren’t washing dishes that night. It’s a small menu, which is probably best, and a few of us wanted grilled cheese… which they were out of (I’m not sure how you could be out of a grilled cheese sandwich), but whatever. At this point we really should’ve left but we were really hungry and it was getting late. We waited very long for our main meal… we got a few apologies from our first server… the kitchen sent us another app as apology then an apology from our second server. We were puzzled as our original server then introduced our new server and said “she was leaving” which is fine, but the restaurant still looked like it needed all the help they could get plus she just stayed to chat with the workers who were doing some work. Including the one biased on her phone, while all the tables still needed to be bused. This restaurant needs a manager to ensure the staff are properly trained, and put in the effort. Sadly, we will not return.

    Terrain Cafe – Glen MillsResponded 4 days agoWe were so sorry to read this. We are in the beginning of cold and flu season, and it has been running through our staff. The day you came in we were down most of our servers, bussers and hosts. In these moments we do our best to give our guests the best possible service, but sometimes we fall short. I will be sending you a private message inviting further discussion to see if we might make it up to you. Thank you for your feedback! Terrain Management

    I’m glad we had a reservation as it was crowded and had a long wait for walk-ins. My grilled cheese was good but I could only eat a portion of the side salad: some greens were wilted and slimy. The quinoa fritters were unusual but worth a try! Overall, it was a fun treat to eat there.

    I was really looking forward to coming here for brunch with my friend but the food wasn’t great. I got the breakfast board, the food layout was poor, I had some random greens kind of tossed on the side of my plate with 1 slice of sourdough, and 2 fried eggs on top (no cheese, no butter, no nothing). The side was 2 slices of bacon, 2 really skinny sausages, and breakfast potatoes that were under seasoned, cold, and dense/hard. Not to mention that it took over 20 mins to get our coffee and almost an hour for our food to come out (there were 2-3 other people there at the time). Our server was nice, but she didn’t really come that much. So yeah, the board was definitely not worth 18$. Overall, overrated, which is unfortunate, since I’m an avid Terrain customer. 3/10

    We visited over a weekend for a girls trip. I ordered the mushroom soup which arrived to the table barely warm. I did request that it be heated up further. My friend ordered a med-well burger which arrived very undercooked it was med-rare to rare. My friend also tried to buy some chocolate chip cookies and was told from multiple people you were out of them but after we finished eating I was able to order some via the app. Somewhat disappointing from the visits we've had in the past.

    We made this reservation as it was my Nieces birthday and she had never been to Terrain before. This was her birthday wish! When we arrived, it was busy, and the Hostess seated us after a few minutes. We sat at our table and no Server stopped by our table for quite some time. We waited then I asked the Hostess if we had a server as nobody had stopped over. Finally, a gentleman came over at which time we were all ready to place our order as we had plenty of time to view the menu. It took some time for the food to arrive. We still didn't receive our drinks when our food came out, not any water in the interim. We were told the tea is still seeping, but only two of us had tea and tea doesn't steep for that long. I requested that they do something special for my Nieces birthday, but they didn't do anything, which was very disappointing. The overall service was not what we expected.

    Our last visit to Terrain for dinner was disappointing, except for our lovely server Fay. First, the hostesses seemed utterly confused and one kept shouting out diners names when their table was ready which just seemed really off given the venue. Our table was in the cafe and not the greenhouse, which at first disappointed me, but Gay noted that the noise level in the greenhouse was very high and that we should be glad we weren’t in there. Food was ok, didn’t blow me away as the food usually does. The ambiance is lovely and the value is good given you can byob. If something could be done about the awful sound the metal chairs make when moved on the concrete floor, it would go a long way. The noise it makes is awful and continually interrupted our conversation.

    I’m not sure why you have special instructions, because none of it was even followed. I simply asked for a happy birthday dessert and my instructions were pretty clear, but did not happen. I thought my burger was over cooked. I thought the front of the house was miserable. Our server was excellent, the food runners were excellent. The ambience is always excellent. As far as my special instructions went I said if we order dessert just do a happy birthday for Eileen and if we said no dessert, then just bring the olive oil cake with a candle and none of that happened. Fortunately, my friend enjoyed her birthday very much there, I did not mention anything about dessert to her so now she probably just thinks I didn’t make the extra effort. And this was my first time being there.

    Disappointed once again. Prices have gone up which is understandable given the times, but the quality and quantity of the dishes has gone down. We ordered the mushroom soup as an appetizer. It took a while for the flower pot bread to come out and our soup had already been served and the bread was not hot when we finally got it. We were still eating our soup and bread when the meals came out. We asked for them to be held until we could finish our soup and when they did bring them, they were just warm, not hot. They must have been sitting in the back waiting for us to finish our soup. Our meals weren't that good either. Having been to Terrain many times over the years, we feel it isn't like it used to be.

    we go several times a year and every year on my wife's birthday, the table was terrible, the setting was awful. I have never extended anything less than 5 stars, ever, very disappointed. My wife used to get recognized for her birthday with a cookie or some desert which is provided as a courtesy, not this year. Sad to see you are getting away from those special touches, we are certainly paying enough for these "special" touches that use to bring us back and back again. The place was packed so I understand my lack of 5 stars is no cause for alarm. Just a little bummed that it was not special. Thanks

    We ordered the avocado toast & mushroom soup. The soup was delicious! We didn’t read the description well enough on the avocado toast; found the red pepper flakes overpowering, making it difficult to taste the other flavors with our burning mouths. Fabulous ambience, as always. And the flowerpot bread is a favorite every time.

    My friend and I go several times a year. We love everything about Terrain Cafe, from the outside, always plenty to see. Inside the shopping area has many different items that you can't find in other places, always something to purchase. The dinning area is spacious and the food is always good. Something for everyone. The employees throughout are helpful and courteous. It's always a pleasure and we look forward to returning. Nice to go, also, during any holiday season you get plenty of ideas on how to decorate.

    Our order took 25 minutes to be delivered, then when we finally got it (we both got the same thing-grilled cheese sandwich), one of the sandwiches was burnt and barely had any cheese. We also ordered the truffle fries for $$4 up charge and they were not even warm. The tables were packed and the noise level was ridiculously loud and impossible to talk over. We asked for the manager, who got a new sandwich & hot fries. He was very apologetic and gracious. We felt like he properly remedied our complaints.
