Terra Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We were there for Thanksgiving Dinner. When we made the reservation no mention was made that this was buffet only. All three of us became VERY ill within hours that night. The next day we called the restaurant and told the manager how ill we became after dinner. Her reply was “it wasn’t our food!”
Hope this was just an off night as this restaurant is one of our staples. Service was extremely poor ( a waiter can at least pretend to like their job) and horribly slow. Food was only marginal - filets undercooked (almost raw) , shishitos undercooked and inedible. Such a disappointment for a normally excellent dining experience. We won’t be in a rush to rebook.
As always a wonderful meal. We had appetizers, entrees and desert -all were excellent. Our waitress, Katie from North Carolina, went above and beyond to deliver great service with a huge smile! Ask for a table in the round alcove if you want a more intimate atmosphere.
We were celebrating our son’s Birthday, I called them prior to make sure they have candles & they said that they do...
We ordered food & my food came out with the Hair on my Kale, they brought me another plate portion was slightly smaller & it had yellow pieces of kale on my plate!
Service was terrible, not friendly at all!!!!!
At the end they brought the desert & left no Candles on it.... my husband had to get up & find a person to get candles...
It was too late to leave since we had a special occasion we didn’t want to spoil it...
Will never go back!!! Won’t recommend this place to anyone
There are better restaurants in Vail , like Sweet Basil!!!
We loved terra bistro. Our waiter Oly was EXCELLENT. He was friendly knowledgeable and knew the answers to all our questions. Pretty impressive in a town wherr service is below par. .our food choices were really delious...the cocktail and wine menu were great..We definitely will be back and will request Oly!
Interesting experience with Open Table app. Our reservation was not handled well by Terra Bistro much to our disappointment. Host staff were confused as to number, 2 or 4? We were shown to a table for 4 in an unacceptable location. While the hostess tried to find other accommodations several parties were seated while we waited. At the same time several tables for two were empty. As locals it was a great disappointment for one of our favorites in Vail.
Went during restaurant week, so entrees were reduced price. Food was outstanding, from the goat cheese appetizer to the trout and steak and the lava cake dessert. Every dish was creatively prepared and aesthetically beautiful. Portions are small but perfect for a 3-course meal (as long as you don't want leftovers). Service was attentive and friendly.
The only Room open when we were there for Labor Day was the larger of the three areas, no ambience at all. Should have had the Creek side open for a Holiday weekend. The food was way too salty, could hardly eat it. Service was indifferent. Very disappointed.
Always a lovely experience and always good food. Our waitress wad very good, but a little over worked. That's probably why it host originally wanted to seat us at a terrible table in the doorway to the back room in order to stagger the load on any one server. But the table we were originally showed to really wasn't acceptable, particularly to regulars, so we asked to be reseated. All in all still a very nice dinner
The Host was very gracious when we arrived for our reservation for two and noticed we were not thrilled with banquette seating. He quickly offered us a lovely table in the back corner of the restaurant as its occupants were about to leave. We were happy to wait for it and he made sure it was ready as soon as possible. Our Waitperson Mina (if I spelled wrong I apologize) took wonderful care of us and graciously accommodated our preferences. Terra Bistro's Chef has done a wonderful job including Plant Based entrees and appetizers that are delicious (and not bland) into the menu. The Bar Staff were also very helpful and friendly! I would happily return to Terra Bistro!
Love the ambience of the mountain room. We enjoyed the food, wine and conversation. The salmon was delicious and the asparagus appetizers crunchy and seasoned perfectly. We felt rushed by our server who approached our table too frequently and interrupted conversation. This is a long time vail favorite and will continue to be so!
Terra Bistro is a great Vail main-stay. They have a great wine list, seasonal, delicious food and the service is solid. I typically like to sit in the back of the restaurant where it's a bit quieter and more intimate, but if you want to people watch, choose a table in the front dining area.
This is a fabulous place! We were greeted warmly at the check-in and taken right away to our table. It is a lovely, warm spot perfect for a special occasion dinner, romantic, or just a really nice dinner out. Our server Andy was very professional, attentive, knowledgable about the menu and ingredients, and overall took great care of us. They have a nice wine and beer selection and the menu has something for every palate. The food is perfectly prepared, beautiful, and very good. Everything was fresh and tasty. If we're in Vail again, we will definitely go back!
