We love Terrain. We’ve been for brunch, lunch and dinner and we’re always impressed. Food is spot on. Service is good. Friendly atmosphere.
My woke and I were just there on Wednesday for dinner. Loved everything. Our waitress,Anne Sophie was great and a lot of fun.
We will definitely be back. Keep up the good work.

Service was outstanding, tho it took almost an hour from ordering to food on the table. (That’s a kitchen problem, not a service issue.) Love the menu…interesting, inventive, fresh ingredients.

My wife really enjoyed the ambience with all of the plants and the rustic decor...right down to using canning jars as water glasses. She was also impressed by the presentation of the food. Everything tasted great and the service was very good, too. The serving sizes were large and they had a large selection of menu items identified as vegan and/or gluten-free. Not issues for me, personally, but I found it to be a thoughtful touch. My only minor complaint was that it was a little pricy. Sorry...I'm sure that's just an old man's standard complaint. Why...back in my day you could have bought a used Model-T or a good milking heifer for the price of that meal (shakes fist).

I was glad we had dinner there and will definitely be back.

As a frequent customer of Terrain, I have to say that this last visit there was really lovely and the staff made us feel extra special and well taken care of. They were very attentive and went to great lengths to make us feel very comfortable and welcome. Our server Ann Sophie was particularly kind and helpful and so courteous. We were able to have the special "Sisters' Lunch" that had hoped to!! Thank you Terrain Cafe!

This was our first time at Terrain. The atmosphere alone is worth the visit . There's a great shop attached to the restaurant, and a nursery for all your garden needs. The food was very good . Lots of healthy options made with local ingredients. Definitely recommend, and we'll be back. I just wish it was closer . We drove from Philly to check out this gem.

The noise level was unbearable at times to the point where we considered asking to change our table to be outside. There are many ways of treating the acoustics so that quests can hear each other talk. Everything else was wonderful with this one exception. With regard to a recommendation to others, I would do so with the caveat that they be prepared for a very NOISY experience with great food and service.

We went back after a moderately disappointing last visit and things were back to the normal high standards this time. Happy to report we had a lovely meal with quinoa fitters, fried calamari sandwich with truffle fries, and harvest bowl filled with yummy veggies. Service was great.

I love the food and the ambiance at Terrain; however, when the dining room gets full, it’s almost impossible to hear a conversation. Also, both times that I’ve been there, the server “has to leave” before our dining experience is over and another server steps in. This is awkward when it’s time to tip. That’s the worst part of dining there.
The BEST part of dining there is the unique way that food is presented. Beautiful and rustic. Delicious artisanal cheese plate which is described to a T. Scallops over ratatouille—-divine!
The terrarium dessert is unique and sounds interesting but don’t get it alone—-get 3 friends to share! A few bites and you’re done!
BYOB is always a plus… wine buckets are provided and uncorking is no problem for the servers.
All in all, a delicious experience. We’ll be back but next time, may choose an outdoor table.

Terrain is always consistently good. Had the burrata salad with add-on seared tuna and really enjoyed it. Dining partners had the smoked salmon toast, their wonderful mushroom soup, and the grilled Brie and fig sandwich…all exceptional. In an age where good help can be hard to find, service here is always attentive and friendly. Took the rating down a notch because the venue can be quite loud, but one cannot beat how absolutely gorgeous the interior is…like you are dining in a terrarium. Go a bit early and explore the garden center and store, as they both close at 6. While expensive, the quality of the garden center and store offerings are top-notch.

We love Terrain. It’s my favorite place for lunch. The kale Caesar salad with a medium cooked salmon filet is my favorite. We do go off hours to avoid crowds because it is a highly popular restaurant for a reason!!

We really enjoyed the entire dinner from start to finish and plan to go back for more. Our server was very pleasant and it was also nice to walk around the nursery afterwards. The BYOB made for a relaxing evening with our choice of wine.

Service was not fast at all and portion sizes were very small. We sat for an hour and a half waiting for our food and did not get the check until 20 mins after we had been done eating. The place is gorgeous though!

Experience was great! Service was exceptional. Food was excellent. I especially loved their French toast! So good. I’m glad I went with the seasonal lemonade because it was so good. The complementary bread and butter is absolutely delicious. I promise I’m not exaggerating! The vibe was nice (I reserved a table for inside btw) and they are very accommodating. Absolutely loved it. 10/10 would recommend. I want to come back!

The entire experience at Terrain is phenomenal. We were married at Terrain and had our anniversary dinner at the cafe. It truly felt like a special night out that couldn’t be replicated elsewhere. The ambiance is unmatched, the food is top notch, and the staff is incredible and kind. Go early to stop by the store filled with so many beautiful gifts, and stick around afterward to wander through the gardens after dinner. Words can’t do it justice.
