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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The setting is very pretty. The waitstaff is very green and untrained. Lots of little details not sophisticated or done well. The food is mediocre, doesn’t quite work flavor-wise. We tasted 8 dishes but didn’t finish anything. Great concept, I hope they get it together.

This was hands down the worst meal, service, and ambiance we’ve ever experienced. It was so bad we left after our first bite of the entree — actually, it wasn’t even bad it was downright disgusting—the appearance, smell, and taste of the food... stomach-churning.

The dining room is a carpeted conference with the cheapest IKEA-esque furniture, no music, and LED lighting.

The wait staff appeared to be busy with what I'm not sure as there were more severs than tables, but we couldn't flag anyone down for water.

From the menu, we were excited to try the cocktails -- bad but not as wrong as the rest of the meal. Also, they have a minimal selection of alcohol, so you have to sort of choose from the menu.

This place was like the chef wanted to emulate a restaurant in NY or LA, but has never actually experienced it firsthand and so is just severely missing the mark.

Delicious food with unique flavors. I had a Manhattan made with their whiskey and a unique spicy vermouth and bitters! The three of us had a different entree...steak, ahi tuna, and salmon. The carrot ginger soup was delicious. We shared the Brussels sprouts and the hamachi appetizer. The flavors were unique as was the textures. Each of us has different food sensitivities and the restaurant was very accommodating.

We hope to return very soon.

I think that they did a great job turning an old hotel and a very hip cool place with a great vibe. We live nearby and I felt like I was on vacation.

The food was artistic and the ingredients were wonderful and very healthy. The organic house wine was very smooth and inexpensive. There was lots of room between the tables so it felt very Covid safe. All of the staff was wonderful and very friendly.

Overall it was a great experience and we can’t wait to bring our friends and family back their.

The food wasn’t anything special and portions were really small. Service was terrible. We waited 30 minutes just for drinks and never saw our waiter again after he brought out the appetizers. We had to ask a busser to order dessert and for our check. The chocolate gluten free desserts were very dry. Our second night there we got take out and all of our food was very dry. Extremely disappointing especially since the resort does such a nice job with everything else.
