I took my mom here for her birthday and while we had a bit of a time trying to find the actual cafe, we enjoyed the food and ambience.

Pricey gardening products…

I was disappointed to learn that I could not schedule a get together for 10 people except quite early in the morning 9:00 -9:30am or 7:00 pm in August (it’s now June 14). Upon further questioning, even more disappointed that they don’t accommodate such large parties at regular lunch or earlier dinner hours.

Lovely place (at a garden center), solid service, food menu items inventive, just not executed 100%. May be COVID hangover - out of practice. Will try again.

Dinner was lovely, but we ended up getting half of it for free because the kitchen ran out of our first choice and took a long while to let us know. The staff recovered beautifully and were almost too attentive. Had a great night.

We had an okay experience at Terrain. I won’t say much because our issue was kindly adjusted and the service was great!

I’d love to give Terrain another shot because I’ve always heard great things. Restaurants are entitled to bad days and that’s what I’m summing it up to.

Love the atmosphere, we live two hours away so it’s a treat to come! Usually we enjoy our meals. Unfortunately our meals were not great this time. I left more than half my food on the plate. It was heavily oiled and under seasoned. Bland.
My husbands steak was incredibly chewy.

It was our first visit and what a fun and tasty experience. Sit outside on the patio if you can. And the chocolate terrarium desert is a must try!

As always, the food was exceptional. The host staff gladly assisted us with a timing delay which made our lunch even more enjoyable. The cafe setting is devine and our waiter was helpful, attentive, and made sure our lunch was perfect. Will return again soon!

Food was excellent. We both got the terrain burger with an over medium egg (the egg was perfectly cooked) and dressed greens. We split Parmesan truffle fries-hot and crisp. The Arnold Palmer and lavender lemonade were delicious and refreshing.
We ate on the patio which was lovely. Great ambience. Service was good; we waited awhile before water was brought to the table. We had to ask for bread which didn’t arrive until our entrees, and we waited a while for glasses of ice. But overall food service was prompt and our server was attentive. I love dining here and will definitely return.

What an amazing experience. I felt as though I was in a botanical garden that fairies had built. Such a whimsical venue that was rivalled only by the delicious food offerings. The lunch menu was perfect and the food was delicious. I would highly recommend Terrain, especially for occasions that you wish to make memorable.

First - this location is BYOB! This was a surprise bc the Devon location was not. Food was very good, service good, a little slow but we were there to catch up so not a big deal. Outside chairs are *very* uncomfortable and the outside tables are impractical too - very narrow!

Terrain has a great atmosphere - our only complaint was the narrow, long tables which make it harder for conversation/ fitting food and drinks on the table. The cheese plate, steak frites and shrimp and grits were our favorite items. Food came out quickly and staff was very friendly.
