Brunch at Terrain is always a welcomed treat, especially on a sunny Sunday afternoon. The setting and atmosphere in the Greenhouse is wonderfully relaxing. The food and service is second to none. Be sure to bring a bottle of your favorite wine or bubbly to enjoy with the fantastic cheese board and charcuterie.

Went to terrain last Sunday with my 13 and 15 year old we drove 1 1/2 and really were looking forward to eating outside since it was the first nice day in a long time . We got there at 11:15 our reservation time and we had to wait which was no problem since it’s such a beautiful place to walk around , when it was time to be seated about 15 minutes later we were sat inside I asked to sit in the garden or the patio but they said you had to request it before hand and they could not accommodate us at that time . Kind of bummed as we sat in the back near the bathrooms . Our waitress was very busy but she was sweet and attentive . We had the French toast delicious! And eggs with the asparagus. I had a mocha my son had hot tea and my daughter an iced tea . Presentation is quaint and delightful.
$59.00 for the three of us before tip . Place was packed lots of women and baby showers . It’s BYOB FYI

My only complaints are it was very loud - not energetic. And honestly, we wandered around a little trying to find the cafe and then trying to find the exit.

I loved our time at Terrain Garden Cafe. We were celebrating a friend's birthday ofter our afternoon at Longwood Gardens. My only recommendation is that I prefer more moderately priced entrees. The brunch menu has a hamburger that is delicious and it would be wonderful if that were included on the dinner menu.

Thank you for a lovely evening.

Overall a really nice experience! All four of us loved our meals and felt that the portion sizes were ample. The bread and butter served for the table were delicious, but we wished there was a little more. Coffee and water refills were very frequent. Our waitress was attentive, but our meal took a bit long to arrive after our appetizer.

Unfortunately, our table placement was less than ideal. We were right next to the bathroom area, so lines formed close to our table. Plus, the idea of sitting near a bathroom is hardly appetizing. Also, they had recently watered a large, nearby potted plant, causing a sizable puddle to form under half of the table. I had to turn my feet at an awkward angle to avoid the water while we were there, as I didn't want my shoes getting damaged and feet getting wet. That definitely should've been mopped up for the comfort and safety of guests.

This BYOB restaurant evokes its garden location, indoors and outdoors, with great food choices served in a variety of manners and styles--create your own tapas or go full course. All is delightful. Complimented by wonderful service.

The greenhouse was full and noisy——understandably so. Not good for quiet talk, but the service was great and the food was good.

I'm upset with myself that I didn't stop and eat here sooner. Amazing experience. Not too long of a wait for a table with a reservation. My friends and I had a lovely experience from start to finish. I got their burger with an egg and bacon for brunch and it was so delicious! Get the truffle cheese on your fries and add that bacon and egg to the burger, it's worth the extra bucks!! We'll be back for sure!

I took a friend to Terrain for her birthday. It's the second year in a row that we went there specifically for her special day. We love browsing the store and having a fun meal together. We drive an hour to get to Terrain - it's a shame it's not closer or we would go more often.

We were there for a late Sunday brunch. Although I was a bit skeptical I wanted to try the blood orange toast and am so glad I did. I thought it was out of this world and look forward to going back again to get it. My husband had the salmon toast and loved it as well. We shared the Farmhouse board and were impressed with all of the selections. Be careful of the mustard...it's hot! My compliments to the chefs and service staff. Professional and efficient.

Ordered cheese & meat board and a quinoa salad. Cheese board was just ok, crustini almost too hard to eat. Quinoa salad was tasteless.

Very noisy lunch crowd when we arrived and after being seated it was 10-15 minutes before a server approached and told us she’d be right with us. Five minutes later another server who saw us sitting came and told us the specials and got us beverages. He returned with drinks and ended up taking our order. Good thing we were not in a rush. After a while as people left it quieted down and service improved. Food was good as always.
