Terra American Bistro
Terra is always relaxed and friendly, and their specials are indeed special—not that the regular menu is any slouch. On a rainy Sunday, we opted for the pot roast and meatloaf as comfort food, along with the excellent seafood chowder, topped with the butter cake—which to me is more like a big soft cookie—and the chocolate cigar. Yum to it all!
The ease of making a restaurant reservation is phenomenal. Customer Service is Hi, and appreciated. Every item on the menu is delicious, and good-sized servings. The menu it’s self has a wonderful variety of dishes, and a ginger lemongrass lemonade is to die for.
The FOOD and STAFF ….. are EXCELLENT!!!!!!!!!!
We always have a great meal and a great time.
We had a lovely Thanksgiving meal. For the meat eaters it was well worth the price and quite delicious. A little disappointed with the vegan selection/price. However...our vegan family member had a wonderful experience. We would definitely return to do it again.
We appreciate your feedback.
Going out for Thanksgiving dinner conjures images of cold turkey sitting on plates of congealed gravy, under heat lamps. But at Terra, it was fabulous! Each meal was as freshly prepared as if made to order - just as it is on any other night when you may be smart enough to choose to dine here. The pork loin may possibly have been the best thing I have eaten in a year. And let's not forget the golden beet and goat cheese salad that came first! Seriously - the team at Terra is amazing. You can't go wrong. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection. There is always a wide range of choices - meat, vegetables, and fish. Desserts are on par with the rest of the meal - which is to say...DEElicious. The servers are courteous and friendly without joining your party and they're knowledgeable about the food and wine choices if you just can't make up your mind. You can dress up or dress down - it's incredibly comfortable. GO
The food NEVER disappoints. Chef Jeff served up a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. Everything was tasty and moist. The plate was full and we left stuffed. Thanks Terra for a wonderful Thanksgiving experience.
So happy to hear you were pleased.
As usual, excellent food, great service - Nick is always alert and attentive to service needs
You deserve the best everytime.
We know Terra is great that's why one of my birthday wishes was to have dinner there. Perfect!
Thanks for choosing Terra for your special day and Happy Birthday!
Everything was wonderful. It would be nice to add cushions to the wooden chairs.
Thank you for your feedback.
The food and service were fantastic. We've been to Terra before, the food and service are always excellent. It can get a little noisy, but not so loud that you can't have a discussion and it's people having a good time. One of our favorite restaurants.
Thank you for the shout out.
We pass this place all the time and finally decided to try it out for date night. We were pleasantly surprised! Dont be fooled by the location. It was actually quite a treat. We ordered the seasonal pumpkin raviolis due to the rave reviews and oh boy! It was a surprise for my taste buds! It was like fall in food form. It did an incredible balancing act of appetizer and dessert. My favorite part of the meal. We'll be back for a neighborhood date night for sure!
Hello neighbor. Thank you for choosing Terra. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed our hidden gem. See you soon.
Birthday brunch was really nice here. Our server was very kind and attentive and the food was phenomenal. The bistro itself had a very nice decor.
Pleased to hear you loved it.
It was our first visit. We enjoyed a nice, relaxing dinner. Cocktails were excellent. Brussel sprouts appetizer was also very good (and vegetarian). We tried the bowls and they were OK. Looking forward to going back and trying more appetizers and flatbreads.
Thank you for choosing Terra.
One of our favorite restaurants but last night our server got three of four orders wrong or didn't even put in. Maybe new and they were busy before a theater event. If he had repeated back to us, it would have solved the problem. Food was delicious.
Delicious food and generous portions at a great price. I have been to and loved the brunch options but will start coming for dinner knowing our whole family enjoyed the food. The black cherry Manhattan was fantastic.
Awesome- stop in anytime.
Greatly appreciate the Gluten Free options! Excellent brunch.
This place is lovely, food was superb, server was very knowledgeable, and we had a blast.
Thank you for the review.
We all enjoyed our dining experience at Terra American Bistro on Monday evening. The food was enjoyed by all of us. The only thing I didn't care for much, was the squash. It was kind of bland. But, the Brussel Sprouts with the Balsamic glaze, were to die for! I had Grandma's Brisket, and it was delicious! I also had the Banana Bread pudding, and it was also very yummy. Everyone one of us agreed that the service was wonderful, and the food was Terra-iffic! We had dined here before this, but it had been a few years. The menu has definitely changed, but the food is still just as tasty!
Terra-iffic- we love that! Thank you for the great feedback. Do you have a favorite you would like to see return?
It was FANTASTIC as always. Best little gem. Food and Service are always excellent.
Sweet- so glad you loved it.
The prices were reasonable, but the protein (we had Salmon) was very small. The taste was delicious.
This was our first time back to Terra since the new decor and menu changes were installed. It is still a great dining option. The service was exceptional. The food was well presented and very good. Our wine was a favorite. I’m not sure about the new dining room chairs however. I was a bit uncomfortable and my husband was too.
We appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
The fish special was a winner. The chicken ginger potstickers were tasty but tepid. Wine service was attentive enough ... ice bucket for white wine good. Very delicious sides of Brussels sprouts and carrots accompanied a large and flavorful pork chop, that needed a steak knife. My first time at Terra, and I’ll be back to try other dishes that sound great on menu.
My mouth is watering reading your review. Thank you for the feedback. See you around soon.
This is my favorite restaurant! Every plate I have tried there has been wonderful. I love how the menu changes from time to time.
Thanks for taking time to leave us feedback. Do you have a favorite plate?
Still our favorite restaurant and fav bartender, Christine.
There has never been a time we have come away from Terra American Bistro feeling less than satisfied. No exception here either as another successful dinner was had by all with our latest dining experience. From the exceptional pumpkin ravioli , the short ribs, salmon, chipotle steak, to the chicken rice bowl all entrees were perfectly prepared and we enjoyed them all.
We appreciate all the love. We love what we do.
Excellent service, great food and lovely ambiance! We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.
Super! See you again.
The place looked like a cafe with plastic chairs and we were a party of five and we got stuck at a table for four with no room. They didn’t know where to put the appetizers or all the drinks there was literally no room for five people at this table. We asked to move to a larger table and she said no. Then the server asked us why we were at this small table we said ask your coworker! It was a joke!! The food was horrible the fish for two of us was snapper it was raw and gooey it was really bad we sent it back and said keep it. He offered other choices or to recook it we said no thanks!!! The ambiance is horrible the food was bad it ruined our night out for our party of five!! We will not be back.
The main entrees were very good. The side dishes need a little work. Squash was pretty hard. Mashed potatoes not so good. Infusion drinks were great. Service fine.
From the moment we walked into the restaurant and was greeted by a friendly hostess` our dining experience was absolutely delightful. We totally enjoyed the pot stickers, calamari and toasted bread and brie appetizers followed by a chicken rice bowl, chipotle flavored steak to die for and the macaroni cheese and Brussels sprouts accompanied by the tenderest beef you can imagine. We love the flavors and the presentation of the entrees and enjoy visiting Terra as often as possible.
ALWAYS THE BEST....VERY CONSISTANT. WE HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD MEAL AT TERRA AND ALL OF OUR OUT OF TOWN GUESTS ENJOY IT AS WELL.
Thank you for the review.
We love sitting at the bar and interacting with Christina, enjoy her energy, friendliness and her bartending skill. Food is always good, sometimes outstanding. We feel like we're family when we come in.
So great to have you. Thank you for the review.
Excellent food, the baked Brie was to die for! Colleen our waitress was the best! We will definitely be back!
Awesome! See you soon.
Comfort food, nice location and friendly atmosphere
Thanks for stopping in and checking us out. We would love to have you back anytime.
Food and experience were both good. Would go again. Short ribs and meatloaf are delicious
We like to explore new restaurants during restaurant week and Terra was amazing! We can't stop raving about the banana bread pudding and how shabby chic the decor was. Definitely coming back! :-)
Glad to have you anytime. Thanks for choosig Terra.
1. Fig jam does not go with lamb. 2. Don't grill lamb chops with jam on them, totally burnt to a crisp on the outside and raw(not rare) on the inside. 3. Risotto can not be served salty and crunchy. 4. Any greens on the plate should be editable, not tough and bitter. 5. If you order short ribs it shouldn't be pot roast. It should taste like short ribs. 6. If you order brussel sprouts and have to cut them with a steak knife that's just wrong. 7. I ordered a dessert from the menu, lemon curd with meringue bits, I got two very hard lemon cookies with a slight hint of lemon, kind of. They forgot to take the lemon curd off the menu. I was told later.
While cooked well, the food could have used more seasoning. Fortunately, there was salt on the table. There was a strong fish smell, which was likely due to do much fish being served. However, it was not positive for the overall dining experience. The wine was good, but Ball/Kerr jars used for drinking glasses is not my preference; even for water.
On a busy Sunday, the service was prompt professional and polite. The brunch menu is very creative, delicious and plentiful. The noise level is high yet your conversations are audible. The cocktail menu is excellent. Their basic Bloody Mary is a real pickle. Enjoy!
Fun review to read, thank you! I will share your comments with our team.
Delicious quality meal! Colleen was sooo friendly & helpful!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your experience.
