A bit pricy, but cool takes on classic dishes with fresh, local ingredients. I liked the atmosphere a lot and really liked my seasonal cider drink. It was fun to browse the store while we waited.

Great BYOB resturant with an interesting and diverse menu and interesting ambiance. The wait staff is very professional and enthusiastic. Their smiles are contagious. Everything on the menu is appealing. One of their signature appetizers is the "board," cheese, meat, fruit, spreads and bread presented on a round wooden board. As a person with Celiac Disease, I think I would have enjoyed the board more fully if gluten free bread options were available. Otherwise, the meal was flawless!

We didn't realize Terrain was BYOB, so just FYI. The restaurant is lovely and in such a nice setting with the garden store attached. I have been before and the food wasn't as good as my previous experiences, so I'm not sure if it was an off night. It was good, but not great. It also took a really long time to get our entrees and there was no apology or explanation.

Celebrated our one year anniversary here (as it was also the site of our wedding). It’s been a long time favorite of ours, but this time was no exception with some amazing food and even more amazing service. It felt like every server in the restaurant found a way to stop by our table which felt very special. The place is always beautiful and will always be in our hearts.

Celebrating our Anniversary, Terrain is a BYOB, starting with an Artisanal Cheese board consisting of local cheeses and crostini, fresh bread, a wonderful salad and exceptional dinner. The service was outstanding, the ambience out of the ordinary. There was seating outside under twinkling lights, a firepit going among the Fall decor of the nursery..an outstanding evening. Thank you!

Terrain garden cafe has rolled out a new fall menu, with a larger variety of options.
These include a dutch baby pancake and a variety of toasts including the one we had with goat cheese and figs. think avocado toast only with diffferent toppings. there were also fall salads and egg dishes and a few entrees as well. We had a cake with chamomile and a miso topping-a fitting end to a Birthday lunch.

We’ve been a few times now and always a nice experience, food is a little pricey but totally expected for the area. Breakfast board is awesome, French toast was awesome, cheeseboard was also very good. And pretty much any tea/coffee you get is always good. Servers are always very nice and helpful.

Wonderful food, wonderful atmosphere and great service. We had a birthday celebration in the evening and it was perfect. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and they look out for your every need. Even though the setting is rather casual, the service is first class and the food was perfect. Its a BYOB so a bit of savings there. As the daylight dims, the restaurant lights really glow, so a beautiful atmosphere among the gorgeous plants that abound.

I have eaten here many times. Terrain has been my favorite place for quite a while. But...this time I was disappointed on many levels. The tomatoes on the arugula salad were mushy and inedible. The salad dressing was very forgettable and the portion as a dinner was small. The corn fritters are really hush puppies and not what I expected at all. This is a BYOB only restaurant. Time to grow up and get a liquor license. And the mushroom soup which has been a personal favorite was not up to par. The soup was not warm, over drizzled with olive oil and lacked that fresh made taste. Not sure if the new Terrain in Devon is causing this location to decline but a very big difference from previous visits.

We always love coming to Terrain! Walking inside it almost seems unreal just how beautiful everything is. We had a reservation and came on time however, we did have to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. We loved the bread in a pot, looks really cool and tastes great! We got the breakfast board as well as the Terrain burger. They were delicious, the burger was a bit too greasy but still tasted good. Overall great experience at Terrain!

The service was wonderful, the food was not. Had four entrees and nobody liked the food. Halibut was served tasteless with cold sour cream underneath it next to chilled hard grains with no taste. Fish seemed to have sat around before served hence the temperature was not hot. The duck breast had no flavor or sauce with hard cold grains like the halibut. Salmon was on bed of sliced squash barely cooked and lacked flavor. Out of all the four dishes the steak and frites was just ok. No one from the table was picky eater, the only highlight was the free bread and butter served before meal. Price was overpriced for what you get. I prefer their brunch than dinner. Was very disappointed. Normally would take pictures of the food at meals but the only picture I did take was the bread and butter. As the presentation of the entree was obviously not worthy or appetizing to the eyes. Overall I feel the combination of the dishes they put together just doesn’t go well and barely any flavor to any of the dishes. You just go there for the ambiance.
