Overall, we had a good experience, but we had to wait over 20 minutes for our table, despite having a reservation. Parking was also an issue and at least 3 servers dropped and broke dishes during our meal.

Great building with tons of interesting architecture and displays..
The menu was varied and wide ranged , including gluten free options.
Burger was nothing special and didn’t come as ordered.
When I told the server ,it wasn’t well received.

Great space and awesome food choices. Only minor issues were 1) wrong meal brought to table, and 2) layer of egg inside omelet was still raw.

I was there Saturday 11am for Brunch. Our simple egg benedict dishes took 45 minutes to come and they were overdone. The waitress was very apologetic and gave us a free desert. This was my second visit. I am not in a rush to go back again.

Their updated menu is great (many more vegetarian options than before), and I enjoyed the orange toast with greek yogurt. The location is always packed on weekday afternoons so make sure to make a reservation ahead of time if you're going for lunch.

Ate at Terrain Easter Sunday. At 5pm the restaurant was not crowded. The service was just ok...not attentive, did not check to see if meal was ok, did not ask if we wanted a second drink (and we did), no spoon served with soup and when we got one it was filty (obviously from the dirty utensil pile). The food itself was very good especially the mushroom soup...flavorful and just the right thickness. The grain bowl was nicely done and the short rib was delicious. Terrain has a unique atmosphere, one that seems more appealing in the warmer months. The metal chairs scraping on the floor when people get in and out is loud and really annoying...when a whole table left at one time it was like a symphony of metal on metal. Overall, just an average meal for us and nothing special. Been here a few times already but not rushing to return.

Food was mostly good, but the bread dough hadn’t been salted (a shame, since their bread is usually amazing) and the short ribs were way overdone (incredibly dry). We had to ask for extra sauce for the ribs, just to make them edible, but that sauce was way too salty. Felt like an off night for the kitchen, which was a bummer. Usually, they’re much better.

Service was rude and stand offish. It ruined the experience. Food was good but not enough to justify the unkind service.

This is a good restaurant! One thinks of it as “someplace different” but it’s more than that. The menu is interesting, the food is delicious and fresh. The wine list is small, but better than average. It’s best in summer when one can enjoy the open doors and flower-scented breezes. Even on a blustery night, though, it is warm and inviting. We really like this place!

We drove down to Westport to meet some friends of ours who were visiting New York City and decided to take the train to Westport as an excursion. We enjoy the ambience at Terrain because of all the beautiful plants and garden decor. The service is very attentive and friendly. The food is very good. Being in Westport it is busy for Sunday brunch so call several days ahead for reservations.

It used to be my go to favorite place to dine. The ambiance is so special I brought all my guests from out of town. But lately, the experience is very disappointing. The service has been and still is attentive, curteous, professional, and friendly. But the food has become far less than special. I can't say there were things wrong with our food. It is more like we don't enjoy the dishes as we once did. The menu is getting old, so we tired of their choices and moved on. One night I requested the rack of lamb. I was told they were out of it, despite that there were only two other diners there that night. There is a supermarket virtually next door, how can you be out of anything? On another evening, the menu was so boring my whole party ordered a burger. That was a Saturday night and the restaurant was half empty. No surprise. On yet another visit, there were mice running around the floor, under our table the entire time. I forgive them for this since their have an open wall to a nursery. However, I suggested they get a cat and keep it in the office during the restaurant hours. Terraine, please return to what you used to be.

Last Sunday was the first time I’ve been to this cafe and I absolutely loved it! The menu was thoughtful and varied, something for everyone. The warm bread served in a terra-cotta pot was definitely one of the high points for this self-confessed carb addict!

Just one aspect that could be improved: the water provided was clearly tap water with a very strong smell of chlorine. Maybe filter the water to get rid of that heavy chlorine smell, or substitute a bottled water. All the rest of the ingredients are so carefully curated that the tap water stood out as a neglected detail.

Don't bother making a reservation. We had to wait to 30 min despite making a reservation a day in advance. The hostess didn't bother to update us about the status of our table and we literally had to hover around to see what's going on. Very disappointed in the service and hospitality factor

Terrrain cafe is a wonderful place- I enjoy it very much.. Food, atmosphere- terrific.

We waited a bit longer for our table (20+ mins..with reservations made ahead of time)- and service seemed a bit rushed. Unusual, as I have not encountered this on any previous visits. Probably just one of those unanticipated, busy days!

Was there with friends, so not a huge deal. Will definitely be back!

it needs daily specials & updating every season
