Food is above average. Good Choice of wine, except the price is too high.
Service is okay until they turned off half of night around 9:30 to hint people to leave .
Spent $700 for 3 people and we should be treated better.
For this money, I will not go back again.

I had the halibut special and it was excellent. Tried octopus and it was lovely and tender. Seafood spaghettini was a hit. Only downside was tea was tepid and my peach cobbler was bread pudding! Stick to mains and you will be pleased.

The restaurant was empty at 8 am, and all they would seat us was in the worst tables at the restaurant. So many empty tables, but we were not good enough to seat there. We left and went to a place (Peter's Fine Dining) that appreciates our business.

Our family had a dinner on a Sunday night. I would agree with other reviews that food is overpriced and service is very slow. We had to wait for 1.5 hours to get our entrees. No one apologised for the wait or explained what was going on or thanked for the patience. Waitress just kept on repeating that food is coming soon.. For appetizers we ordered Caesar salad, octopus and quail. Octopus and quail were tasty but the salad was bad - soggy and overdressed. For the main we had steaks and seafood pasta. Steaks were Ok, but pasta...for $40 bucks you get a plate of spaghetti with 3 shrimps and half of a lobster tail. No crab meat, no mussels as described in menu. They don't even grate real cheese! The waitress was busy with other customers and did not came to ask if we are enjoying our meals. At that point we were so disappointed that we just wanted to finish whatever we were served and to leave the place.
Buy the way bill was $420.0 for 4 of us.
I don't usually file the complains but this experience was really disappointing.
I attached 2 photos of the seafood pasta: what you expect and what you actually get.

Went with my parents and boyfriend to celebrate my 26th birthday. Ambiance and service was great.

Food was absolutely to die for though. For appetizers we got a dozen oysters which were tasty and fresh, and then the gnocchi. It was hands down the best gnocchi I've ever had. For mains we got the seafood pasta, elk, rack of lamb and branzino. All delicious!

Will keep returning.

We were celebrating a friend's 50th birthday and booked a table on the patio for lunch. Patio was lovely, music was great, Michael is an excellent server who attended us perfectly and even solved the bee problem brought on by our cocktail selection. Everyone loved their food selections, gnocchi, seafood pasta and ahi tuna nicoise. I would definitely go again, and the patio is so lovely, not expected in a strip mall type setting.

I have heard so many great things about Terra. I had my husband's birthday coming up and thought it's time to try it. As soon as I walked in, it was perfect. The ambience is elegant and cozy at the same time. The service was exceptional ! You took a party of six and made us feel right at home. The food was on a whole other level. Exceptional!! You accommodated everyone's dietary needs. The wine choices are superb. I will be returning again and will recommend my friends. We have an apartment in Manhattan and your restaurant would be in the top 2 in my opinion. We have been to many in New York and this exceeds even a few of them there. Thank you Terra for making my first experience a lasting one. Excited to bring my family and friends to enjoy good food at its finest, good wine and above all else, your service to detail. Kudos to your staff who were kind and considerate and extremely polite. Thank you again and see you soon.
P.S. your jazz singer and accompaniest were amazing ! A beautiful,touch to a perfect restaurant.

Terra always has a wild game chef special, and last night it was kangaroo! I had never tried it before and I figured there was no place better for a first time. Not only was I pleasantly surprised, I will definitely have it again!!
Our service was excellent table side, although we were surprised by the somewhat disorganized bar when we were trying to get pre-dinner cocktails.
