Very nice ambiance. Food was tasty. Wait staff was nice, efficient. Only issue was looked like they were going to a concert not a higher end restaurant. Sloppy and disheveled. Not saying a strict uniform but maybe basic jeans and black shirt or something? It was distracting.

Wonderful service and incredible ambience. Not 100% happy with the food, and that is disappointing considering the menu prices.

As always, our experience at Terrain was phenomenal. The food was well prepared, beautifully presented, and tasted delicious. When they learned that we are hosting our wedding there, we received a complimentary cheese board and cookies! Our server was attentive and friendly. They are just such a kind group of people working there! Thank you for always making our experience amazing.
We also really appreciate how proactive Terrain is regarding safety. It’s well-ventilated, the reservations are well staggered, plenty of hand sanitizer, and contactless payment. We are in a very tight bubble and terrain is the only restaurant where we have felt comfortable dining.

Great garden vibe. Service was friendly. Food was only so-so. Ordered a salad topped with protein. Salad was bland, chicken was unseasoned and very small portion. We had Truffle fries for the table which were excellent! Finished with a yummy cappuccino.

10/10 recommend. Came here on a Sunday with a date, and was a lovely ambience. Attentive waitresses, delicious food, and great atmosphere. Toasted Marshmallow Mocha Latte is a must-try. Can't wait to come back in the Spring, Summer, and next Winter!

This is one of my favorite eating spots. You always feel at ease and relaxed like your at a spa. They've created a peaceful environment to eat, laugh and enjoy yourself. The Breakfast board and French toast are my favorite for breakfast/Brunch. Highly recommended!

We have been to terrain many times but this was absolutely the best experience thus far. My wife and I started with the cheese board and the waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the cheeses and the flavor profiles. The house-made mustards, pickles, and fruit compote are ridiculously good. For lunch, we ordered the terrain burger and cauliflower sandwich both were served hot and full of flavor. We had a great time!

Everything about Terrain Cafe is perfection....the atmosphere and staff. And, most importantly - the food was absolutely delicious. Reservations are needed and it's BYOB - which I did not know until I was there. I highly recommend this cafe. It's as charming as the store.

Our server accommodated my request for a side of greens with my soup, the dressing was extremely scarce and did not have much flavor. The soup was fantastic and flavorful. The flowerpot bread was cold which was disappointing as it is usually kept warm by the terra cotta pot it is served in. The retail portion of the building closed while we were eating. We had hoped to do some shopping on our way out of the restaurant. QRS code shopping for take away chocolate chip cookies was complicated and the cookies were not even listed on the orderable items. Eventually I was able to buy the cookies through a work around, but what should have been a simple purchase took far longer than it should have.

The Terrain is a very unique restaurant and very different from other restaurants. The food was excellent and served in different type of dishes. I thought it was a little pricey for breakfast but for a special occasion it is worth it.

We waited a while for the table we had a reservation for but the staff was amazingly accommodating. They were so nice to us and gave us the hummus as soon as we sat down. We got amazing service and the food was excellent.

With stringent rules during the pandemic they request that each table depart after 2 hours. The staff was so accommodating when my sister went to the wrong Terrain Cafe in Devon and needed to drive 35 minutes to get to Glen Mills.
They could not be more understanding! The food was fabulous and we always take a stroll through the retail store afterward. The store has the most unique plants, pots, lotions and home accessories. It's a great place to purchase gifts for the person who has everything!

I always feel like I should be honored to be allowed to dine here. The hostesses are always cold and not very accommodating. At the end of the meal our coffee was warm at best and I asked for hot coffee. It took over 15 minutes for them to bring a fresh cup and when they did, it was brought in a “to go” cup and we were told our 2 hours were up snd that we would have to leave. This was even though the restaurant had emptied out and there were more available tables than occupied. This is a great place and I otherwise love it. The employees need to be knocked down a few notches and should be more kind and welcoming.
