Contemporary American

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.
