    Love this place but it’s getting waaay too expensive. Dropping $300 + for a dinner for 2 is putting this place out of whack on the value scale.

    Our meal at Terra Sole was delicious and our server was pleasant, professional and attentive. Higher ups checked in with us as well - it wasn't clear who was who, but I suspect at least one was the owner or the chef. The food was superb. Our only qualms were the small size of the outdoor tables, which became more of an issue when we were presented with too many menus. The regular menu was quite thick, and then there was the specials menu, the specialty cocktails menu, and the wine list. It was unwieldy and I started getting cranky. Also, somewhat annoying was the fact that the prices for the specials were not listed, and some of them were exorbitantly priced, which we found out only because we asked. Our served also recited additional specials, without stating the prices, and when I asked, she had to go someone to find out. But my crankiness disappeared once the food started arriving. It all really was quite excellent. We will return, better prepared for a possible bumpy start.

    Be prepared for egregious pricing. $30 for Chef Boyardee pasta entree. House red $20 per glass (for a tiny pour). We feel very taken. Avoid.

    Disappointing is how I would sum up TerraSole. We had high expectations given the reviews and the prices. The service was excellent, always there checking in, but not overly intrusive and along with the excellent cocktails were the two highlights of the meal. Don't get me wrong, the food was good, but not worthy of the prices being charged. We were expecting the veal (chop) parm at $68 to be a memorable experience - tender on the inside, crispy breading on the outside, a nice ladling of sauce, and cheese melted to perfection. Unfortunately, too much sauce meant there wasn't even a single bite of crispy breading to be found. The fresh pasta squid ink linguine was nice with generous additions of prime seafood, but it seemed as if it lacked any sauce at all which meant the only liquid on the dish was the natural "fishy" juices from seafood on it; perhaps reducing the fresh tomatoes with a little white wine, xvoo, and garlic beforehand. Am I nitpicking? Yes. But when a shared appetizer, main course, shared dessert, a cocktail, and one of the cheaper bottles of wines comes out to $150/per person without tip ($115/pp without the wine) I'm expecting perfection from the kitchen. The main dining room is a bit tight, packed with tables, so if you're expecting to be able to have a private conversation over dinner - forget it. The drama at the table next to us was entertaining.

    I loved the original TS. The menu was smaller and the ambiance was cozier. I think the expansion took away from how special it was. The food was okay but not the best I've experienced there in the past. I would still recommend the place but be prepared to pay over the top prices for okay fare. I will try the Sunday brunch mainly because the prices seem to be closer to other places.

    We made our first visit to this wonderful restaurant on the Saturday before Valentine’s Day. The specials that they had for the holiday were excellent and they have an extensive regular menu as well. My husband said that his veal Milanese was superb. We both enjoyed the lobster bisque with large chunks of lobster meat. Service was quick, friendly and attentive without being overbearing. We cannot wait to visit again.

    Went out to Terrasole last night with a friend. Nicole and Francesco were great! I got the mushroom soup and she got the artichoke soup to start- I’m sorry the bowls didn’t automatically refill themselves because they were so good! For dinner we had the salmon and the branzino-both delicious! We can’t wait to come back when we’re able to get sushi!

    An overpriced dinner for mediocre food and annoying loud music. The night got off to a bad start when the first thing our server did was come over holding a bottle of wine and tried to sell it to us for $110. I have never seen this practice in any restaurant that claims to be somewhat up scale and thought it was rather tacky. However, once we got past the hard sell wine experience the service was very good. Limited menu with just a few over priced pasta dishes for a restaurant claiming to be Italian. The black linguine was under cooked and came with 3 tiny clams, 2 shrimp and a tiny piece of fish. Hardly worth $24. The other pasta dish was okay and the burrata appetizer was fine with good quality ingredients although totally overpriced. One desert was stale and barely edible. Won’t be back. There are many other options in the area with fine dining and far superior food.

    This place had gone downhill. It used to be the best food in town, but has now lost its way. I've been that many times, but not for about 8-9 months. The menu now has sushi and sake. That's right. In an Italian restaurant. The Italian menu for entrees is very limited with 2/3 fish/seafood. Also a couple of steaks and A5 Kobe and lobster sushi roll for $160. I had the mushroom soup, which was good, and the panko-stuffed chicken, which was terrible. On my way out I attempted to explain why it was terrible to the manager, praising the restaurant before and after my criticism, to try and soften the blow, but he didn't say anything and looked shocked that I would criticize the food. No questions, or apologies. Just silence.
