I guess you eat here on the experience...the ambience of the place is fantastic especially in the spring, walking around the shop is exactly what they want you to do, we had reservation for 6 PM, arrived about 3 minutes late, but were seated right away, our full meal was over at 8:15...that's 4 people taking over 2 hours, so we were unable to walk the shop, because they close them at 8...now lets talk the food, keep in mind, this place is BYOB, so no alcohol to over charge on...4 people, 2 who order a burger and our bill with tip is $198, we had 1 app and 3 out of 4 order a desert. So to wrap it up, slow service, high prices, but stunning atmosphere...you need to decide if that outweighs the 2 cons...for me, it doesn't.

The band playing in the garden area Easter Saturday was marvelous. I loved the fact that you were able to bring your dog and sit outside while having an excellent meal. We loved the food, our cheese board was excellent, my flank steak was cook to perfection. My husband said it was the best Salmon dish he could remember eating. Most of all we loved walking through the Gift Shop, Nursery and purchasing a few items.
We will be back and would recommend this place to everyone.

A great scene as usual, though my food is always pretty bland. Wish they could get the flavor going better. I never leave thinking my food was fantastic, just sort of ok. But the staff os fantastic and the ambiance is great, which is why I still come back

We've visited Terrain many times and will return again, but this visit fell short of what we have come to expect. The food was excellent, we like dining in the greenhouse (but it was noisier than we remembered). We had two interactions with the hostess and in both she was frosty, aloof and unsmiling...the vibe was that she was busy and important and we were annoying her just a bit. Unfortunately, the other two members of our party encountered a similar attitude when we were shopping in the store --- this is at odds with our prior experiences there; so dunno what's up.
On the other hand, the server at our table (Leeann) was a pure gem; warm, smiling, knowledgeable. The other members of our party commented that she must be trying to make up for her grumpy colleagues. If so, she succeeded.
We cheerfully drive over an hour to shop and dine at Terrain and will do so again in the hope that this experience was an anomaly....we all have our bad days.

The food was very good! I got the burger and the sweet potato appetizer, while my bff got the breakfast platter. We had two bread rolls (those things are amazing, so's the butter) and were too full for dessert but the cookie we got after was amazing!!! It was also absolutely gorgeous and smelled awesome between the food and the flowers.
Our server was really really sweet and helpful, even though it was super busy she was attentive and we appreciated that.
For some people it could be a little expensive, but to me it wasn't. (we got an appetizer, two mains, and two drinks. Including tip it was ~65$ with tip.
Couple of heads up - get a reservation! We wouldn't have gotten in without one, and the first time we tried to go in there wasn't any space so we wised up this time. Parking can be a little hard, so get there early so you have time. We got lucky with a parking spot but it could've taken a while. It's also very noisy, even if absolutely beautiful, so if you're looking for a totally romantic meal where you feel totally alone with your partner, maybe rethink here! I don't think you can go wrong with the food, though. I think everything would be delicious.
If you're looking for a really good meal at a good price with a cool setting, this is definitely a place to go!

What a great dining experience! Not our first, and definitely will not be our last time at Terrain. Our server, Elizabeth, couldn't have been friendlier or more welcoming. We indicated we weren't in a great hurry, and she paced out our dishes with plenty of time to enjoy the food and chat in between. Excellent cheese and meat board to start, with an interesting variety of things to munch on, then the beet salad and mushroom soup. The beet salad had wonderful ingredients, not too much dressing, visually attractive. We shared the salmon entree, also beautifully prepared. Kudos to all the attentive servers who seem to help each other out, refilling water glasses, delivering plates and bread. When we declined dessert, Elizabeth sent us on our way with a homemade carrot cake muffin "for later!" Terrain is definitely an experience, with the rustic greenhouse setting and all of the plants and garden goods to peruse. We love it there and will be back soon.

It was a beautiful warm day, we sat outside on the patio under an umbrella and ate a delicious lunch. We had plenty of time to chat as no one rushed us along. We shared our picnic table with a lovely young couple who brought along their very well behaved Australian shepherd. It could not have been a better day. Thank you.

We LOVE this place! It is a mini vacation for the body, soul, and stomach! The decor in the cafe is a mix of past history, plants and modern flare. It gives off a peaceful and tranquil vibe that makes you want to stay a while. The coffee and spritzer drinks are amazing, as well as the food is clean and fresh. The bread is baked in a “special” container (you have to go there just to experience that!) and the seasoned butter is the perfect compliment. You pay a little more, but it’s well worth it for the quality of food you are getting and being able to explore on a repurposed piece of property! Visit the retail store to see the “living wall” and so many unique garden/gift items and plants and flowers. You won’t be disappointed and you’ll leave relaxed and ready to transform your garden and home! Thank you Terrain!
