For more than 23 years Terra Bistro has been an essential dining destination for Vail Valley visitors as well as a lasting favorite among locals. Chef Shawn Miller’s adventurous approach to seasonal ingredients yields imaginative, carefully crafted dishes and ever-changing menus. With a special focus on lighter fare but with plenty of opportunity for indulgence, our menus naturally accommodate a variety of tastes and dietary restrictions including gluten allergies and vegans. Accompanying our menus is our all-encompassing wine list presented by our very talented in-house Sommelier. Additionally, we offer a variety of Colorado craft beers and Colorado spirits, which are a focal point of our specialty cocktail list and often a highlight of our guest’s experience.

Seemed like a little too much/many Asian inspired dishes/accompaniments, not enough variety, but flavors are delicious and rich without being too heavy, as you would expect from a bistro style place. Great wine list. I would go back.

we were there for our 40th anniversary . We ask to be placed not close to kids. The table they gave us was next to a couple with a long girl. Our waiter took our order, and I asked for a desert menu, which he brought. He told us one item took approximately 15 minutes to prepare. Another server brought our meals. which required a steak knife. That arrived 5 minutes later. The waiter asked us once how our meal was and never came back until I asked the server for the waiter. We then order our desert, I felt since I asked for desert menu he should have asked if we wanted the desert that took long to prepare before we were done we our meal. I did tell the waiter I felt he was ignoring us, and to his credit he did tell his manager. She came to our table to find out what was wrong and did add a second waiter to our table for the desert that did come out in only 10 minutes. For the price and reputation I expected better service.

Wonderful, imaginative food, deftly prepared. Not inexpensive but good value for Vail.

Best meal I have ever had in Vail. Worth the prices they ask. Olli was a polished server and did everything he could to make our dining experience pleasant. I will be back !

For the amount of money this restaurant charges, the food and service should be better. We enjoy the happy hour deal (although the happy hour should be more than one hour in my opinion). We were there for valentines day dinner and there wasn't any acknowledgement of the occassion by the restaurant. No welcoming champagne, no rose for the ladies, nothing.
