Terrain is always enjoyable. The two dinning areas are nice choices for either a more lively or quiet dining experience. The food choices are very tempting and the diversity and freshness are spot on. The array of specialty drinks are a nice addition to your meal.

The atmosphere is very crowded, even tho it is beautiful. Tables are so close together, we practically sitting on top of another party. The cheese platter was the best part of our experience. The service was SLOW. Very very slow. Took forever for drinks, a server to come back and our food to come out, and this was a Monday. SMALL menu, and very expensive. They were out of burgers, and that was the only thing appealing to my husband. Wouldn’t recommend or go back.

We enjoyed the breakfast board and the smoked salmon toast; everything was delicious! The terrarium dessert was very neat as well as delicious😀! My husband loved the apple bundt cake with burnt apple ice cream. The service was excellent. Very nice brunch.

Everything was great except for a table of folks who obviously had consumed too much wine—-loud and borderline obnoxious. It did not help that one of the waitstaff joined in their conversation which only contributed to the din.

Super delicious food. You have to walk through super dangerous shopping area, but worth the risk for what you get. It is very noisy (because it is so busy!), so not really a quiet chat place... but well worth the noise for the quality of yums.

I have dined at Terrain several times for both brunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The ambiance is relaxing and the staff is superb. Every dish is prepared like you’re the only one dining there both in preparation and taste. The price is slightly high but worth every penny. Terrain is
definitely one of my favorite places to dine.

We stopped here for a late lunch and loved the environment. The food was fantastic, service was impressive, everyone there was warm and welcoming.
There’s a lot to see and it’s a very unique concept and we loved every second and plan on coming back.
My boyfriend really enjoyed the Breakfast Board and the environment was cute and cozy, perfect for a Sunday afternoon date!

The server was very helpful. The restaurant was full and there was a VIP (Brian Boytano) there so service was a bit slow, but we were enjoying a birthday brunch. The server brought a cookie to celebrate.

I was assured over the phone that they had a lot of gluten free choices as I was bringing a date there who needed this option. The only thing they could offer were rice crackers. I was a bit frustrated and disappointed. You would think given it was a rustic garden like restaurant, they would catered to these needs. Over all, though the service was good, the options and selections were disappointing to me.

First I would to start with saying terrain is one of my favorite places to eat and shop however this is the second time in the past 3 months that I felt like I was being rushed out of there. An average Saturday brunch last about 2 hours I understand that. I was catching up with a very dear friend who I have not seen in ages. We are both women in our 30s we have lots to talk about and big wallets. We could have dined anywhere but we chose terrain and we felt like we were being rushed out of there for another reservation. I get it it’s popular and packed and other diners have to be waited on but I will stop coming to terrain if I feel like I’m being kicked out.

Been here for brunch once and dinner once. Brunch is pretty noisy and dinner at 6 was fairly quiet. Both times the food has been amazing and the service great. Not much else to say, pretty place with great food and friendly, knowledgable staff.

Lunch was delicious! We both had the mushroom soup which is a classic. Portion size good. My dining partner had the fennel and winter squash salad. He said it was enjoyable. I had the charcuterie and cheese board. All elements were wonderful. We shared an order of fries. Tasty! Server was pleasant, professional and attentive without hovering. Pace of meal was good. Cafe was almost totally full this day, and with all the voices, it was noisy. Overall very positive experience. I will say, however, that $68-something for lunch for two is on the high side; note we did not order any specialty beverages or dessert. We selected Terrain because of the quality and taste of the food (plus the celebration we were having), and will return for a special event/day type of restaurant.
