The restaurant was nice and the food was very good. We had been there before and enjoyed it. Unfortunately, we had an individual at the table next to us that didn’t understand the proper voice volume for the restaurant. He was very loud and spoiled the ambiance.

We have eaten here on 4-5 of our trips to Vail. This is the first time that we had a very bad experience. First, the menu was nothing like the one posted on their website! The vegetarian options were downright terrible!!!! Our service was just as bad ! The waiter basically ignored our table and picked up one of our half eaten entrees so quickly that he didn't even give us time to ask for a take home box. He also didn't even offer to give us a take home box!!! We have no desire to return !!!

We came to celebrate family birthdays while on our annual ski trip. Terra Bistro is always a favorite spot. We increased the size of our party a few days before our original reservation, and Tony was wonderful in helping us move things around a bit to accommodate the change. We love Tony! I can’t say enough about how special this place is to spend the evening... and the food is delicious!

Normally we never miss eating at Terra Bistro when in Vail. It is usually top of our list. But this time several things missed the mark. We were seated next to a very large party that was buying loud. Even the table behind us was super annoyed. What can you do? It not only ruined our dining experience but we couldn’t enjoy our food or have conversation. Truthfully management should have spoken to them. In addition, several items we requested were forgotten. They eventually came after an abundance of patience but I’m not sure if it was bc of the large party or an off night on their part
Aside from that they double booked us which created a problem for me with Open Table reservations.
If this was a new restaurant for me I would never go back but since we always eat here when we go to Vail, and we’ve been going for many years, I give them the benefit of the doubt that we had a one time bad experience this year. Hopefully next year will be better.

We had the tuna and tots and crab cake for apps, and the pork chop and beef noodle bowl as entrees. The tuna and tots was terrific. As were the entrees. I would skip the crab cake. Wine list was impressive. But no values to be had.

Food was decent but trout was dry and clearly not fresh. Odd given we’re near lots of streams. Cooke skillet was mediocre and good small. Steak and pizza were very good. Service excellent. Decor is unremarkable. Feels a bit like a hotel function room.

Fantastic dinner and evening, as always.. The thing we love about Terra Bistro is that there’s always some unique flavor combinations and there’s substantial proteins and vegetables on the plates. The food is fresh and delicious and the presentation is beautiful. Andy was our server tonight. A nice Kiwi guy who was attentive and friendly and provided exceptional service! We will be back next time we are in Vail for sure! Probably our favorite dining experience in the valley.

It’s a very nice place, and the food we ordered was delicious, Salmon Tartare, PorkShop and Truffle Alioli French Fries.The cocktails were very good and original. But they ran out of 2 dishes we initially planned to order, Tuna Terra Tots and Short Rib and the waiter wasn’t too attentive.
