An inviting and contemporary atmosphere greets guests at Terras, set against the backdrop of the beautiful Sonoran desert. Intentionally designed for guests to linger and connect, each need carefully anticipated before the next. Terras features a multi-course menu full to the brim of vibrant, inventive regional fare, showcasing freshness, vigor, flavor and adventure in equal measure. At the heart of Terras lies our wood burning oven, uniquely coaxing the flavors of the land to truly show themselves, as they are, naturally. The seasonally resonant menu at Terras is made even more memorable with the addition of its mindful mixologists, extensive biodynamic wine list and insanely delicious micro-desserts (we suggest trying at least two).


Terras bar focuses on seasonal craft cocktails and features an extensive list of natural, bio-dynamic and organic wines.

    Took a friend for lunch as a thank you, and we enjoyed it. I had the chicken/green chili tacos, which were quite good; she had the vegeburger, and said it was yummy, though it looked very dry and tasteless to me. Restaurant was empty, but service was pretty slow - had to ask a couple of times for iced tea refills. Setting and decor are certainly top notch! We were not in a hurry, so slow service was not a problem, but would only return if time were not an issue.

    Stayed at Civana resort and ate here each morning and for dinner twice. The food is very good. Great flavorful and healthy options, including vegan. Dining on patio is very nice. Service is excellent. Breakfast and dinner were delicious. One dessert didn’t hit the mark for me but that was it. Great restaurant.

    We had a great time at Terras. We were celebrating our 7th anniversary and they provided complementary champagne. We started with the hearts of palm crab cakes which were delish and had the brown rice noodles and achiote cauliflower as mains - both of which were flavorful and interesting. We capped off the night with the pumpkin spice brûlée cake which was my wife’s favorite part. It was creamy and sweet with a bit of tart from the cranberry compote. Wonderful service, food, and flair!

    Went with some friends to celebrate and we had a great meal. Was able to accommodate two vegans, one pescatarian and one omnivore with a wonderful menu, a few choices for everyone. Everything we had was phenomenally done and presented beautifully. Very relaxed vibe in the restaurant. Will definitely go back.

    Food was horrible —we both ordered the ahi tuna —it looked AND smelled bad. When we asked the waitress to take these dishes back, she remarked “they shouldn’t smell like this”?? The food we ended up eating was very mediocre. This hotel is lovely and needs to have a restaurant worthy of it. And it’s quite expensive to boot —so until there’s a major change in the kitchen should be avoided

    Vegan dishes are fantastic and even the cocktails are made with the healthiest ingredients and low sugar. Highly recommend the hibiscus margarita if you want to indulge. Everything here is restful and thoughtful. All the dishes are beautiful and truly a feast for the eyes first. Portions are moderate and don’t encourage over eating. Absolutely lovely staff that is here to help.

    We stayed at Civana for four days and after one meal at Terras we decided to have all of our meals here and never left the property. The cocktails are delicious and made with simple ingredients, we especially loved the Thyme Gin cocktail. For dinner we probably tried everything on the menu. So many options for vegetarians, meat eaters, dairy free or gluten free. And all were so delicious. Our favorites were the Hearts of Palm Crab cake and the Winter squash salad for starters. Our favorite entrees were the Maitake Mushrooms, Brown Rice Noodles and the Fire Roasted Chicken. All entrees were very flavorful and you never felt bloated after a very filling meal. We even ended each dinner with their incredible brownie sundae

The few tiny adjustments in the old menu, have me curious for what will be coming on her new menu. If you are deciding whether to try them, definietly say, do it! You will not be diappointed.

    We really enjoyed the eclectic, locally inspired menu with a variety of inventive entrees from cauliflower steaks to vegetarian enchiladas to salmon and filet mignon. The craft cocktails were also delicious. The ambiance is nice with socially distanced tables that keep the noise levels down and opportunities for conversations at the table optimal. The service was good although we had to ask for things such as any specials, the daily wood-fired pizza offering, and the dessert menu. I would expect a more proactive offering of these things. However, anything we asked was answered courteously.

    New Years eves dinner. We had been emailed the menus so knew what we wanted, my wife is vegan (which was the reason we chose Terras in the first place), so this took a stain off of an often difficult exchange between guest, server and kitchen. After being seated it took about 10 mins for our server to arrive. She informed us that the menu had changed to a set menu for the evening. Not great but ok, it’s New Year’s Eve and we were here to enjoy ourselves. The choices for main course were 1. beef tenderloin, or 2. Risotto with mushrooms and cabbage. The sides were 1. mashed potatoes 2. kale. So…..the choice was risotto and cabbage with a side of mashed potatoes or more cabbage. Nice job on the menu chef! Mushrooms were poorly cooked the tops were way too salty and the stems were tough and rubbery. The wine had sediment in it, the service was poor by literally everyone except our server. She apologized to us and explained the menu change was a last minute thing and they were very disorganized. Too bad the manager couldn’t manage an apology. It is absolutely clear that they are trying to be something they are clearly not capable of being, fine dining. Poor service poor food. Thanks for ruining our New Year’s Eve. We will never be back. I guess it is a fitting end to a year like 2021.

    Spent $150 per plate for dinner on New Years Eve. This did NOT include drinks or tip. With the exception of the exceptional cut of beef tenderloin, the food was tasteless. Honestly, the chocolate desert tasted like a cheap dry chocolate cake you'd buy at Safeway. Actually, it was worse than that. Reminded me of the a chocolate cake I made in my Easy Bake Oven as a child. Seriously. I have paid far less for better meals and service. While the staff was friendly and I appreciate that they were working on New Year's Eve, the service did not match the price. I realize these are tough times for restaurants but don't try to over deliver. Just serve a fresh, healthy, flavorful meal at a reasonable price and you'll have happy customers. The interior (redone this past year I believe) was beautiful and peaceful but NOISY. All the noise from the bar can be heard in the restaurant. Not very classy. This could have been so great ......

    Huge fan of everything Civana stands for, including the amazing food. However, this time I was left underwhelmed. The entree was dull, lacking in flavour and seemed it was prepared in advance and heated for us. Considering the price per plate, I expect more from an establishment such as this. Hoping the management takes note. Customer service was amazing as always!
