It is a fun place to shop and have lunch. I had the burger and it was very good. The service was excellent. My only complaint would be the noise level, it was difficult to hear and converse.

Great concept and ambiance (it’s within the Terrain shop, so think *lots* of greenery), but they seemed unable to keep up with reservations. We, and at least four other parties, were seated about 20 minutes after our reservation time (of 1:45PM on a Friday). If they were smart, they’d give people buzzers so they could explore the store while they wait!

Very cool menu and the food is tasty and wonderfully presented. The service is adequate....not bad, but not great either. Orders are taken relatively efficiently, but then you don't see the server again until the end of your meal. The setting of the restaurant is great, but it is VERY noisy and difficult to have a conversation. The store has a good selection of mocktail mixers so I was surprised to see that there were none offered on the menu. Regardless of the negatives, it is a great restaurant and would definitely recommend.

Food was great and I'd go back. Most annoying was that we waited for half an hour even though we booked a table through open table. Several walkins were seated before we were. We didn't appreciate the confusion. they tried to make it up to us with a free appetizer for the table.

More of a "be seen" place than a good restaurant. Kitchen uses organic and artisinal ingredients which is reflected in the price. Two eggs poached in tomato sauce, topped with feta and crispy chick peas with 2 pieces of rye bread is $16. It tastes like it should, but is not particularly notable. Very busy on a recent Friday lunch and very loud. Sound bounces off of every surface.

My husband and I are doing Whole30 right now and our waiter was very patient in answering all of our questions about the menu and use of ingredients. He helped to make sure we ordered something in line with the whole30 diet and informed the kitchen of our preferences as well. Everything was delicious and we had a great night!!

The Terrain cafe is a place we have tried again and again because the ambiance is outstanding for a celebratory dinner. The bread cooked in the flower pot is always a treat. It is easy to have good conversation. However, the food is terribly inconsistent especially for the price.
My daughter and I each ordered the special pasta and both servings were cold. The server was apologetic and brought them back to the kitchen which “reheated” it. The dishes came back hot but the food was still cold. Reminded me of when something is heated on a plate that is not microwaveable in the microwave; however, the server said they had been heated under the broiler. My friend’s red snapper was also disappointing. I did not make a fuss because we were celebrating my daughter’s achievement. The restaurant removed our drinks from (two wines and a lemonade) the bill, but for me it was a lost cause.

This was a lovely way to spend an afternoon with a dear friend. appreciated that we were never rushed and got to stay as long as we needed. Service was really great, and loved the atmosphere. Highly recommend the grilled cheese with bacon apple and cranberry My only feedback is that it is a bit overpriced for the portion size.

I have been to Terrain quite a few times and I am never disappointed. It is the PERFECT place to take a friend as it has that bit of uniqueness that makes you feel like you’re somewhere special. The food is lovely, the atmosphere so pretty (even on a grey February day) and the service is excellent.
