 (Toronto)·Dined a day ago

After being greeted and given our menus, we waited about 20 minutes with the menus closed until we managed to flag a waiter to tell them we were ready to order. There were I believe 2 tables in use, so the place wasn’t busy... The staff was just standing around talking with one another, oblivious to our table.

Once we got the attention and placed the orders, the appetizers and oysters were really great, but the main courses were both very subpar especially given the high price point.

We won’t be returning.

It wasn't my first time in Terra, but it was a couple of years since I dined here last.

The service was as excellent as previous times, however, the food was very mediocre this time.

The lobster tail was not warm & juicy and seemed like it was prepared prior to ordering. The tenderloin only looked like a piece of tenderloin but tasted like flank steak.

Wasn't very pleased with quality of the Brunello either.

We didn't want to flavour our evening with sharing this with our server.

Nonetheless, we have had excellent previous experiences with Terra and we know that they can undoubtedly impress the customers.

The place was chaos from the start. Although the reservation was for 5:30, it was as though we had arrived late and we were being punished by being placed in such cramped quarters that dining was uncomfortable.

Noise levels were so high my date had to shout to be heard. I ordered flowers from Bloomex - big mistake. It was a referral from Terra Restaurant so I didn’t expect such poor service. Flowers arrived in an orange plastic bag an hour late without any greenery for presentation.

By this point we figured everything was ok until the waiter knocked our wine bottle over and it dropped to the floor, spilling most of the contents. They replaced the half-bottle with another at mo charge but the damage was done.

When they brought the food, we were once again disappointed to see shriveled vegetables and the tiniest lobster tail I have ever seen. Dried out and tasteless. For the price of the surf and turf, I was shocked.

By the time we left, the place was so crowded and noisy, it was a relief to leave. Needless to say, we are never, ever returning. My tip reflected my displeasure.

Celebrated a birthday here on a Saturday night. Valet parking available. Coat check offered upon arrival. Food was very good but on the pricey side which was ok because we expected it. I had the lamb chops ($59) and they were amazing. Also had a side of the gnocchi based on positive reviews. Oh. My. Gosh. It was amazing. Best dish of the night. We brought a bottle champagne to which a $39 corkage fee applies which I thought was excessive. Service was good. Our glasses were constantly being refilled. Overall we had a great meal and really enjoyed everything. I’ll be back but only for a special occasion based on price.

Al the staff Servers are always so warm and welcoming. It was a busy night but service was impeccable. They have a great private room to host a small group of 10 and can probably fit up to 16 .... so fantastic! Better than hosting at home! Will definitely think of doing that again!!

The food is good but some of the meat in the appetizer was touch. I wasn't very hungry so asked to take my meal home. They forgot to do this. I also didn't appreciate, nor did my business colleague, having the waitress state she would call her "minions to clean up." Very poor taste.
However, I did appreciate the Valet service on a very cold day.

While I appreciated the fine dining service for my client dinner, I found the pricing to be astronomical for what you are actually getting. The appetiser tray was a miss, and the butternut squash ravioli I had as my main was far too al dente and lacked any flavor what so ever. The decor is tacky and outdated for a restaurant I thought was going to modern and chic. Would not attend this restaurant again.

As usual, Terra didn’t disappoint us! Took our friends there for their first time in this restaurant , and everyone had a great meal. Food was delicious and service impeccable! So happy to have such a quality restaurant in this area. And my favorite part of this restaurant is that it’s consistently great. One can count on it. We have been there numerous times and always been satisfied. Doesn’t matter what you order, everything is good and cooked to perfection. We don’t mind paying a little higher price, knowing that we get the quality of food and great service. Still my favorite restaurant in GTA

Amazing service with great attention to detail - we were seated right away (made reservations), they offered to give us a better table granted we returned it by a certain time so I was happy they gave us that option as it made for a much better experience. The food in general was goood, one of the better lobster bisques I've had. The only critique would be the lobster tail - it wasn't that fresh so the meat was quite soggy. 2nd main was good tho (brazing). Overall a great find north of the city, we already made a reservation for Christmas :)

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.
