I have been coming here for years. But my last visit the service was terrible.
Even thou the restaurant was half empty it took us at least 30 min to get our drinks.
When the appetizers arrived the server forgot the side plates.
When the main course arrived we had no cutlery we had to request it.
The same thing happened with dessert and once again we had to request it.

I loved the place. Food was great particularly the lamb rack, however portion of the risotto was a bit too little, overall everything we ordered were great. Service was good. Live music was a bit loud. I definitely will recommend the restaurant to friends.

The service was excellent.
About my food experience: Oysters were very good, Gnocchi were good. Deserts - nothing special. Altogether overpriced.

We are huge fans of the restaurant and we were excited about getting a five star evening however much to our disappointment the restaurant was not its superior self. The evening was just like any other restaurant the things that set Tara part like wiping off your table and the survey between meals and the cheese and crackers after the meal or something that we always look forward to. I’m not sure if they were shortstaffed but we were disappointed

First time there and was extremely impressed. This is why I don’t really decide on going from other people’s reviews because if I did I would have missed out on delicious food with excellent service... Will definitely be back!! Highly recommend. Xoxo

Server never did bring bread to the table....and we suspected we were ignored, since there was a plate for it. One would think when they realized, they would have brought it. We seem to have been the only table that did not. My meal requests got the “we don’t do substitutes” rhetoric. I asked for salad instead of potatoes, and that meant paying 16 dollars for a full salad, when all I wanted was a small salad in place of carbs.
Too bad. I will say the Arctic Char was great. One of my friends wanted to go back for the seafood pasta dish, and what she got this time was a poor comparison to our earlier visit. No tomatoes, no real flavour...another too bad.

We go to Terra a few times a month. It’s right by our house and food has always been amazing!!! This last time though they dropped the ball! We got our food sooooooo late AND COLD!!! The portions were also smaller than usual which was weird...
I love the food so much there and I’ll go back again but if I get the same service I’ll stop. That will be very unfortunate...

This is our second visit at this location, and once again, it did not disappoint. The mussels were excellent, and our main courses of duck and grilled sea bream were exceptional. The food is very well presented, and the service is great!

My only criticism, is that they need to update the decor, cocktail menu, and dessert menu. Needs to be more upbeat. Having said that, We will most defiantly be back.

Highly recommend.

Excellent experience from start to finish. The services was top-notch with a large resource of available servers always tending to each table’s needs. Staff were friendly and engaging. The food quality was high and everything was tasty, well presented and expertly cooked. Pasta was fresh and al dente. Seafood was flavourful and not over cooked. Calamari was smooth in texture with no rubbery component at all. Serving sizes were reasonable and satisfying. Salads were exceptional (Caesar Salad and Rainbow Bowl). This was a great find and we will definitely be back. The menu offered many options for seafood, pasta, red meat, chicken and exotic dishes of the day. We were also very pleased with how child friendly the staff and food offerings were.

The food was great at Terra, but portion sizes are small for the amount of money. Service was good, and server was very pleasant, but the bar seemed a bit confused. My drink was only made correctly on the 3rd try. For a fine dining restaurant, it was just fine, nothing to write home about.

Although the food was very good the prices were very high. There are many restaurants with very good food for half the price. We got a reasonably priced red wine, a couple of martinis, I had crab legs ( but they cut up in small pieces in a bowl with no spoon to hold them so I had to use my fingers) and a square piece of swordfish. The bill with tip was almost $600 for two people. The decor was nice but nothing spectacular.

This was a return visit and we were not disappointed. The Arctic Char was simply delicious and the service was quietly efficient. My client was from SanDiego and wanted to come here again. I have been here for dinner a number of times and now twice for lunch. Definitely recommended.

Excellent food and service. The staff definitely went above and beyond. The musicians were also a nice touch with the perfect selection music. It was my first time dining at Terra but hopefully it won’t be my last.
