Just ok. Service wasn’t overly friendly or engaging. Except for the host. He was lovely. The food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. My main dish was lukewarm but tasted good. The appetizer sounded very interesting but was overly salty and just kind of blah.
Wow. I had read the rave reviews of this restaurant, but was yet unprepared to be so enamored with this meal. I wouldn't normally book at a hotel restaurant, but we were staying nearby in Cave Creek and wanted to dine locally while still having a high quality meal. Terras did not disappoint. I had the beef tenderloin and it was delicious and so tender it practically melted in my mouth. I can't speak to the ambience much as it was dark for our meal (I get the sense there may be lovely views in the daytime), but the service and food hold their own without the requirement of anything additional. I highly recommend--it was definitely the best meal of our trip.
Great service and food.
This was our second time dining @Terras. Love the food. The staff was very attentive and made just the right recommendations
This is my favorite restaurant. The chef is the best. I have traveled a bit, to many foodie cities, and I rank his creativity and talent as number 1. The menu works for everyone. There are options for carnivores, vegetarians, vegan, gluten free, and combinations of all. Don't get me started on the staff! Love, love, love them! I think people don't feel welcome at resort restaurants? Or they think the food isn't good? That is not the case here. So welcoming and best food around. Please check them out, I promise you won't be disappointed.
The food was outstanding and the staff was friendly and very attentive!! I can wait to go back again tomorrow with friends!
Food was refreshing and creative. Servers were cordial but it was obvious the staff had little training. and kitchen and bar service was very slow. Because of this we don’t plan to return. I think they need to hire consultants to up the level of service and knowledge of staff.
Terras was very accommodating with food sensitivities and making sure the meal was perfect. Wait staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Sat in the bar for happy hour which was a little noisy but most bars are. Would 100% recommend and go back
This is a beautiful spot, and the food is incredible. It is also really healthy, but still tastes so good. The service was amazing and there are lovely views....I strongly recommend it
Terras is our preferred restaurant in the Carefree/Cave Creek area.
Food was so tasty tasty and fresh , relaxing atmosphere! Definitely great experience.
I ordered the salmon and green beans. It was very good. The portions are pretty large here, I accidentally over ordered. I also had a great watermelon spritzer that was really great.
Great food, good service! Food was fresh and made with garden fresh vegetables. Meat was great quality as well.
The food was ABSOLUTELY incredible! I would highly recommend and will definitely go back next time I’m in town. The beef tenderloin was exquisite - melts in your mouth!!!!
Wonderful restaurant! Food is full of flavor but also very nutritious. We had dinner here each evening of our stay and the food was on point!
The plating was a work of art on every dish. Who knew healthy could have so much flavor. It was so good we went back the next night!
Love the menu, great vegan options and flavor flavor flavor in every course! Kudos to the chef
Loved Terras! Taylor my server was great. The service & food & drink was exceptional ! Can’t wait to go back !
Lovely setting, delicious food, wonderful team. It's a treat to eat here.
Excellent. We shared two appetizers, they were some of the best tasting and freshest food I have tasted. We also ordered the Salmon, Chicken and Tenderloin. Wow. Melt in your mouth and again the flavors were something. Highly recommend this restaurant for any and all occasions. The servers were knowledgeable and friendly. My new favorite place.
I love, LOVE, LOVE Terras! The food! The staff! It is amazing! I am Vegan / Gluten free and my husband is the opposite of this, and we both find amazing, flavorful, healthy options. I am always sad when they change up the menu, because my favorite dish goes away, BUT then there are new favorites that are as good, or better. Chef is wow! The staff is so wonderful, friendly, and accommodating. It is by far my very favorite place to go out for dinner.
Amazing!! Delicious, phenomenal vegan options
Everything was wonderful about our experience. The food and vibe was amazing!
Food was amazing. The menu was creative, delicious and perfectly seasoned. I had the tenderloin which melted in your mouth. From the first sip of prickly pear sangria to an amazing stoned fruit dessert I wasEnjoying a heavenly meal bite by bite. The service was competent friendly and caring.
We celebrated our anniversary dinner here and completely enjoyed our food, service and ambiance. My husband had the steak tenderloin dinner and was well satisfied with the presentation, preparation, and taste - great choice for meat lovers who enjoy taste vs amount (mind you this was a fair amount of meat). I had the salmon and was satisfied with its mild, buttery flavor and presentation. I can be picky about my salmon so this was a winner in my book. Our drinks at the bar before dinner were well-made and they offered us a dessert for our anniversary. It was a delicious carrot cake with rich frosting - great choice but very sweet. All in all, we had a great anniversary dinner and the wait staff was friendly and accomplished.
The chef's preparations are absolutely innovative and delicious! My husband and I consider ourselves Foodies, whether that is good or bad, and we were just delighted with the taste, presentation and creativity of all the dishes. Wonderful! Terras will become one of our usual spots to dine.
We had an outstanding meal at the restaurant. The menu had a good balance of meat/fish and vegan dishes. Really enjoyable experience
So much to love about our dining experience at Terras. Outdoor seating has amazing views of sunset. We lucked out because it was a perfect evening to take advantage of this. The staff are so awesome. From the hostess sweet disposition, to the having refills of sparkling water throughout, and the waitress who gracefully made sure our dining experience was perfect and I can honestly say the food is something to savor. Salmon cooked perfectly, melt in your mouth tenderloin, carrot ginger soup had the most beautiful flavor. Don’t forget to get dessert! It’s worth the little sludge :) thank you so much Terras for the memorable birthday dinner!
Server and wait staff were not well versed on the menu. Menu created confusion as we were told “everything is vegan” but one of our entrees had “real cheese” and there where obviously non vegan options like chicken/beef/Pizza. When we asked to clarify that one item did not have butter we were told “yes it is gluten free”
We felt rushed to order and when we asked to change our order less than a minute or two after ordering we were told it could not be done and that we would just need to add to our order, but couldn’t change anything.
Entries were good, sides were all disappointing (potatoes & soup were bland, Brussels were soggy)
Very tasty food, excellent vegan options, nice display. Family birthday party and we would do again.
It was my birthday and our honeymoon. Lovely experience and all of our food and cocktail choices were amazing!
First dining experience at this restaurant, which is modern and beautiful. Our greeter/maitre d did not seem too interested in welcoming us. We wanted to switch our table to one near at the terrace, and he said it was reserved. No one sat at that table or the one next to it all evening!
Despite the fact that he was somewhat unpleasant, the servers were great and accommodating. And the food was delicious! And their cocktail list is unique and fun.
We will definitely return.
It was so good - I drove up from Old Town to have dinner two nights in a row!! The tenderloin is amazing!!
Quick request: The mushroom pate bagel chip needs to be replaced with the avocado dish crackers... The bagel overpowers the delicate mushroom.
Amazing vegan options. I’m still thinking of how good the mushroom lentil pate was !
Terras was an unexpected gem! This was our first time there and we had heard nothing about the place. No expectations. We were very pleased that the food and the service were both outstanding! The decor is a bit spartan, but it’s in keeping with the spa feel of the overall place. That was completely forgotten once we started tasting the appetizers and entrees. Fantastic! The desserts were a little more “healthy” than delicious, but overall the evening was really great.
Too loud indoors
I ordered oven roasted cauliflower over quinoa and it came with broccoli, not cauliflower. No acknowledgement from the waiter or chef. I was very disappointed!! And to not have the staff acknowledge it was inexcusable.
Great variety of vegetable options. Terrific service. Lovely ambience. Not cheap, but a lovely treat.
Everything at Civana has been wonderful. The staff is kind and thoughtful. The food is amazing. The only thing we would say that would even remotely fall toward a "negative" review is that the service can be a bit slow for food service at both restaurants. However, we understand the staff is new, the resort just re-opened and we understand this wonderful resort is finding its way in covid times, just as the whole world is. We are in love with Civana and will be back.
Will absolutely be back! Everything was delicious and their food is seasonal. Great drinks, and very accommodating to allergies.
