Terrain is without a doubt one of my all time favorites and my go to place for a totally enjoyable experience all around
This visit I had the peach and arugula salad. I usually order the salmon on top but I didn’t this time. I hate to say anything negative about this place because I love it so much...but the salad was really skimpy and needed some more ingredients in it. It’s absolutely delicious, just needs some more components even if the salmon was added.

No, we booked a table but were kept waiting. The food then took ages to arrive. The burger which was ordered medium rare was very overdone, like shoe leather! The vegan options were not clearly identified on the menu and there were very few, the bowl I ordered with the fafal balls was dry and tasteless. The waitress did not tell me that the appetizer that I ordered (roast chick peas) were a big component of the main course I ordered. She was embarrassed about the burger and offered us a complementary dessert but we decided we couldn’t face any more waiting. All in all a disastrous experience, I’ve eaten here several times before and never had a problem.

The most magical place hidden in CT! We went for brunch but explored for Hours. Can’t wait to go back to this whimsical gem.

We had lunch at 2:00 . Appalling wait for uninspired hamburger and fries. I should have told the manager when he asked . I just didn’t feel like talking. I was too frustrated.

Menu is varied, food is well-prepared and service is friendly and generally good. When our service was a bit slow we were comped some assorted desserts to make up for it. The atmosphere is uniquely lovely. We often bring friends from out of town for lunch or brunch and they are always charmed.

The bread was so disappointing. Usually so fresh from the oven. Ours had been reheated and was tough.

When we arrived we were given a table by the coffee service area. I requested to be in the garden/restaurant area. They were kind enough to move us. We enjoyed our meal. If we were left in the coffee area I don’t think we would have ordered what we did and had some wine. We probably would of had coffee and a dessert.

Terrain is just the perfect "garden party" like lunch spot. Love the ambiance and the food is outstanding. Many healthy choices. I have many food sensitivities and they were able to fully accommodate, including getting the ingredients for various dishes - will be back again and again!

We ate dinner at Terrain for the first time recently. We sat in their indoor garden room--a beautiful setting with rustic high ceilings and lovely views to watch dusk turn into night. The room was comfortably full and the buzz and vibe were excellent--very positive energy throughout. That is doubtless due to the wonderful servers at Terrain--very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable.

The food had a delightful sense of farm-to-table. We started with zucchini and feta croquettes and an heirloom tomato salad, both of which were superb. As mains, one of us had an excellent hamburger (very popular based on the number being served) while the other had a smoked salmon toast, which had a very generous amount of salmon. The food was delicious--a perfect informal summer evening meal for a very reasonable amount of money. We walked out with happy smiles and will look forward to the next time there.

The food was excellent as it always is. I wish the server could have been a little more attentive. We needed to look around for her for extra water or to order our entree, and then again to order dessert. This is a fantastic spot for lunch, and shopping before or after is a bonus.

Food was well prepared, but serving staff seemed inexperienced. Server knew nothing about the beer selection, apps came at same time as entree, then checked to make sure everything was okay before we had even taken a bite. No deal breakers here, just not an ideal experience. Wasn’t busy either. Maybe I’ll try on a different day and time for a better experience.

The food was fabulous. The chairs were comfortable, but hey made a lot of noise when moved. Sound proof panels above would help in reducing the noise. Loved watching the osprey nest out the window. They liked dining on fish too.

Terrain is worth every penny and has consistently been nothing but perfect. I’m not one to eat out often and I usually stay away from racking up a higher restaurant bill when I do, but Terrain is somewhere I’m 100% happy to shell out a few extra bucks for an incredible meal that lives up to the hype. The food coupled with the super friendly staff and beautiful setting makes it a real special experience every time.

I’ve had great meals here but the menu is the same at dinner as it is for lunch and my chicken was dry and rubbery and the entrees could be more inspired at dinner than they were.

I took my nephew here for brunch after he had been traveling and we wanted to catch up. It was a beautiful atmosphere and a yummy menu. Very pleasant service. I’d go back anytime!

This is a wonderful place to meet a friend for coffee, lunch, dinner.....although the prices are high, they use quality ingredients and the service is friendly. The shop is also a real gem....with home items, gorgeous plants and books.

I recommend but not for a group of over 8. I wanted to celebrate my birthday with all of my friends and we had to split up at two tables completely across the room from each other. The service was fine but nothing extraordinary. The food was good and the setting is incredible. Not for big groups but a fun place to eat at.
