My husband and I took another couple. We have dined here several times. This time, unfortunately, was not as good as usual. Our entrees (steak for my husband and a guest) and salmon (for me and a guest) were all cooked well beyond what we had requested. The two with steak, thought it a bit too tough, again not what my husband had experienced in the past. Entrees were not ruined, but not what we had wanted. The kale salad, wonderful in the past, had a bland white-ish dressing. Needed more zip. We'll be back, but kitchen needs closed attention.

I brought a friend here for her birthday lunch and she was blown away. She loved the ambience. we had the brunch and it was delicious...I, a pear salad, she, the mushroom soup. The hamburgers were our entree. Toasted almond ice cream and a heavenly dessert in a little glass topped the meal. Very good value for our money!

I found this place by chance online and glad I did- it lived up to my expectations and it was delightful to eat and shop there. The menu is fresh, and simple with fun artisanal presentations. It also is a great hidden vegan/vegetarian friendly gem. I would though for the fall months until patio is closed add heat lamps or an outdoor fire.

Food and service wonderful. Ate outside which was very pleasant and much quieter than inside. The bonus is the shopping afterwards with an eclectic and unique array of merchandise.

Love this place! We frequently dine here on the weekends (Especially for brunch). My only complaint was that the service was a little slow. We ordered two glasses of wine and a meat/cheese board and it took a while to get both.

The food was terrific, as has been at the little cafe part in the store. The one thing that wasn't great was the noise level. Will keep with the little tables outside. It was at brunch, so it may be different - but I like to be able to order a la carte. The breakfast board was too huge. But everything we ate was stellar - try the corn/ricotta fritters. AMAZING!!!!!!!

My friend and I have eaten at Terrain many times. We were caught off guard by the fact that the portions of salad had shrunk. What is up with that?

Hi Guys, We always love Terrain and the food was great as usual. Strangely, the bread has been inedible the last couple of times we’ve eaten there. Can you check on that? We miss the great bread. Service was friendly but slow.

Always a pleasure to dine at this fun, garden oasis. Food is dependably creative and yummy. Healthy dishes without the "dried and boring" component. Good service which feels authentic and joyful. Great place for a girls' (of any age) gathering! Will keep on my favs list.

There is no place like Terrain. A stunning garden and fabulous shopping to boot.
The food is wonderful, when they bring out the house baked bread in a flower pot with wonderful flavored butter, you know you are someplace wonderful.
It is not fancy, it is comfortable, but very, special!

Upon arrival the hostess was not very welcoming. Seated us at a table with a dirty chair. Ignored the fact I was trying to clean it before sitting - just dropped the menus and left. The waiter was very nice when he first arrived at the table. Offered lots of info regarding the menu - we ordered. Food was served by others and the waiter never returned to see how we were doing. Once we finished eating and it was obvious we were getting ready to leave, he suddenly appeared. We paid with a $100 gift card and cash. We got up to leave and noticed the hostess running after us in a very loud manner advising she couldn’t accept our gift card since the store was closed and the restaurant had different registers - what? It was very embarrassing - made us feel we were doing something unethical. Finally after offering our name along with proper ID she accepted the gift card and agreed to run it through in the AM when the store opened. Beware if you have a gift card at this establishment - most likely will not be returning anytime soon.

We have eaten at the Glen Mills restaurant and were on vacation in Westport and are glad we had dinner here one night. We enjoyed everything, including the charcuterie board, steak frites, salmon, scallops and roasted carrots with verde sauce. The cocktails were great and they have a nice beer and wine selection too. The ambience and service were also excellent, making for a lovely evening overall.
