I absolutely love the ambiance at terrain cafe. I had the salmon toast and definitely recommend. I am a big fan of the pot bread as well, it has a very satisfying taste and spread that comes with it. Will definitely be visiting again! Thank you for an amazing experience!

Very cold; no heaters. Chairs are metal so the seats made it seem colder. Food is delicious but scallop entre was appetizer size and they forgot about my fries (came after I had finished my dinner and reminded them). Will go back but for lunch.

Outdoors on a rainy day, it was still wonderful to sit under the arbor for a delicious breakfast at Terrain. It was the best brioche French toast we have had in years. We had been there before but not for breakfast. It is worth a trip.

Had a 5pm Rez outdoors. Seated at 4:45. Expected
To have outdoor heaters and did not we were COLD! Shocked a place like that wouldn’t have heaters. My husband ordered chefs special. $40 although food was delicious the serving portion was minimal. Big bowl w 1 very small short rib! Really! I had to give him my fries and half of cauliflower sandwich as he was still hungry. Very disappointed in that

My experience lived up to the hype / my expectations. The bread and butter was fantastic, ice tea was fresh, and the salad was superb. The ambiance was beautiful, unique, and festive for the season!

Terrain Cafe was an amazing experience! I was there for my birthday with my girfriends and we had an amazing time. The atmosphere was beautiful- we loved taking a lot of pictures! I was in heaven because I'm all about the vibes at a restaurant. The service was very kind & quick. Also, the food and drinks were a 10/10. Huge fan of the bread in a pot! The latte was yummy and the food was fresh and delicious. I love the vegan and healthy options in general. There is something for everyone & there isn't a person who wouldn't appreciate the experience of the meal & walking around the grounds/store. I will definitely be back!

Terrain has created an attractive place for outdoor eating. What they have not managed to do is organize their staff effectively. It was never clear who our server was, and we had service from several people. When I was ready for the check, I had to ask the person who happened to be passing by. No check appeared for quite a while, so I went into the dining room and asked the person pouring water and setting up tables to please find someone who would bring our check. More time passed, and then both a server and the hostess brought checks within two minutes of each other. The hostess had trouble with the technology she was using, so more waiting ensued.

We had reservations for 4 at 3pm on a Saturday. We ate inside and it was very nice. I was a little worried about the indoor reservation but the tables we well spaced apart and the ceilings are very high.
The food was delicious. I would definitely go back again.

Plus there was the added bonus of shopping there when we were done.

First time and I had no idea what to expect .. Terrain itself is like being in a dream; filled with beautiful flora and fauna of all types and containers wreaths, unique household items and gifts, and then this little gem the Cafe, super friendly aware staff, covid minded and attentive. Ordered the humus which was a masterpiece, the frittata, burger and salads were all equally amazing. a delightful afternoon spent well. Will be back in the winter to see all the holiday decorations and peruse the menu - a must see and eat :)

Terrain is a lovely place. Waitress and service was wonderful.
Food was delicious but we were shocked at the price for what you received! Our dinner was like receiving a very small appetizer.
3 Boat Scallops on a plate for $29.00 is a little outrageous to !!!! No sides included!! Sadly we will not be returning for that reason

I have been a frequent customer for 4 years now since moving to Westport. By frequent, I mean I come here to eat at least two times a week. Most of the staff know me by now and I adore them! The ambience and staff is what keeps me coming back. It has a little of my California vibes that I miss so much. I have to say that when I first started coming here, the experience was better then now. Even the food was better. The managers at the time were nailing it! The second one, Sean, had everything running smooth but he had to leave to turn their other restaurant, Amis, around. The staff loved him and he had a way of making it so lovely. As soon as he left, I noticed it all going downhill and people complaining. I’m not here to give specific incidents (unfortunately so many where I didn’t feel heard or cared about) but the point is that management is everything in an establishment. I’m not going as frequently because of this one thing. That and the fact the restaurant ignored my allergy requests multiple times and made me very sick... major lack of communication between kitchen and staff. The reason I stick with four stars is only because the staff makes my heart happy and they are why I go. The restaurant is SO lucky to have the ones who stuck around! Rockstars !

If I could give this cafe a 100 star review I would. The staff is beyond friendly and super welcoming. The food was incredibly delicious. And the aesthetic view of the cafe both interior and exterior is one you can not find at any other restaurant. We got a complimentary appetizer because they felt our original appetizer took too long and wasn’t up to their standards. I just could not say enough good things about them for it to equate to how amazing of an experience we had

Always fun to eat at the Cafe in Westport, CT's Terrain. Yesterday no exception. Had the Salmon on toast...have had it before and loved it ...yesterday it was over-flavored with whatever the chef sprinkles on that has salt in it. Otherwise...nice combo with yellow beats, etc. Just back off that 'sprinkle' as there's plenty of salt in the capers, etc.

Will of course return...whenever a friend and I visit Terrain which is about 2 times a year.

Was easy to make reservations on line!

We have had wonderful experiences at Terrain over the years, but Saturday night, I am sorry to report was poor. No Bourbon, no chardenay, service was slow (after ordering our drinks, it took 15-20 minutes to find out there was no bourbon), the peach salad with shrimp was, unfortunately, with little taste, little if any dressing. Peaches were not close to ripe and both the peaches and shrimp were not grilled, as advertised.

Sorry to have to share this with you. We wondered if Terrain was understaffed and lost it chef.
