We had a lovely dinner on Valentine's day. The food was so yummy and the presentation of the food fabulous. Terra Bistro has always been one of my favorite places and will continue to be when the food is this good!

Our server was terrific. That said, the vegan dishes, we tried both, were not particularly inventive. The trumpet mushrooms were over salted and I really could not eat them. Many of the main dishes seemed to share the same side dishes, which seemed odd for this caliber of restaurant. I usually enjoy tasting my husband’s side dishes but we had the same sides.

We were placed in a back dining room which used to be a patio. It was very loud and dark and unappealing.
Food was simply not good, spicy, over cooked and did not reflect what the menu described on several of our dishes.
Disappointed to say the least.

Great ambiance, service, and food Hostess was great about finding just the right table for us in their Mountain Room, our favorite place to sit. Waiter was terrific. Dhal dip served with flatbread is addictively good! I had the grilled Mahi Mahi. It was excellent. Simple dish, perfectly prepared! My husband had the pan-roasted chicken. I didn’t try it but it looked great. He said it was. Our hotel valet/shuttle driver said to be sure to try the dessert. We asked which one and he said they were all great. We didn’t have dessert but we pass along his recommendation. One of our favorite Vail restaurants!

We chose this restaurant because they had a few vegan options. We both started with the cauliflower soup (SO good!) and had the green curry with tofu! The dessert menu looked amazing, but we were too full! Such a great restaurant!

We’ve eaten here every time we come to Vail and the food and wine is consistently great. Service, however, was really slow. We had a 7:15 reservation, got seated at 7:35 and didn’t even get served water till 8:00. Not sure what was up with that, but would still come back for another chance.

We love this place and have enjoyed it over the past 10 yrs. A little downturn in service this year.
No coat check person or help with direction of doing it yourself or just wait til someone shows up.
After giving our name for reservation, we were told the mgr (female - have forgotten her name) would be right back to seat us. Upon walking up to her post, we were obviously next in line she stopped short and asked out loud who’s next in s random fashion, she caught the attention of two people who just walked in, coats still on. Off she went to seat them.
All the rest was good as it ever was in the past.
Thumbs up to the rest of the crew!

Food was delicious. The gnocchi with chestnuts and goat cheese, brussel sprouts and striped bass filet were all delectable. Katie, our server, did a great job. Wine sommelier, Jenn (?) recommended us a bottle of rose I would never normally try but paired great. Wonderful evening.

We were in town for a birthday! Our server and food was amazing! We were asked to wait at the bar as our table wasn’t quite ready. We were a party of five and only two of us ordered a drink at the bar as the rest of us were non drinkers...the bar tender was extremely rude and acted appalled that we were only ordering two drinks. Glad that the service was amazing otherwise!

Having Terra Bistro has become an annual rite for us when we are visiting Vail for a week of skiing. We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food, the service and have always had an enjoyable evening while dining there. Definitely on our "keeper" list of Vail restaurants to visit.

The food was excellent. I read all the concerns on Trip Adviser about the service. They must have done the same because we had no issues with the service. Everything came out in a timely manner and the waiter was attentive.
