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!

The Vetri management produces excellent, solid, meals and deserts with a bit of modest and thoughtful innovation. More importantly, the quality is consistent- the mark of a professional restaurantier. A sizeable number of servers actually know how to wait table, and understand that attending a table not yours matters. The only negative—which the Vetri management inherited — is the god-awful noise level. It is like being in a steel plant when they are pouring. Good food and service only partly makes up for being unable to converse with your dinner partner! And, this survey rates a high noise level as “energetic “ — terminally stupid!!

Love this place so much! Always have a wonderful time here. I will say though, our service provider was just OK. I say that because although she seemed to have been giving her other tables lots of attention, our table was blatantly lacked. Took a while for someone to come to us, I kept looking over for attention and she would just sweep past me, and finally when we were waiting for the check, for a very long time, she finally came over not saying anything and just placed desert menus in front of us and walked away not saying anything... then we had to wait ten more minutes for her to come back to just hand my card to her because We were tired of waiting. It was upsetting because we really wanted to look at the shop and it closed by the time we walked out and we drove a long way to get there. BESIDES that rant on one occasion, we love it there and typically the overall expoerence is phenomenal! Beautiful set up, and reasonable pricing for an awesome expierence

This is a wonderful place for bringing out of town guests. You can do little browsing in the store, and then eat a top-notch meal that's as beautifully presented as are the surroundings. You'll wow your guests like ours were.

Ambiance was completely unexpected. I felt like we were in a cross between a forest cottage and a boutique. Creative touches throughout. Our server was immensely helpful and attentive as we had a few questions regarding the menu. Service was prompt. The presentation was beautiful and the food was delicious. We can't wait to return.

I received a gift card to terrain. I went to OpenTable to look at the menu and read about it. Nowhere did I see that it was a BYOB. Needless to say we went and didn’t find out until we got there that it was a BYOB. Food was OK but definitely overpriced for what you get.

The service and food was incredible. Delicious, fresh, healthy choices. Great salads that you can add a protein to. Wonderful charcuterie plate was enough for four and had lovely meats and cheeses.

Gorgeous setting and decor. Only complaint is that it’s VERY noisy. Recommend sitting NOT in the greenhouse room but rather in the garden or regular dining room.
