Always have a wonderful time when I come to dine. Your wait staff is always friendly and takes good care of us...never feel rushed. Especial shout out to your sous chef Meghan... love it when she cooks for us (and yes, I'm partial to her... she's my niece). Happy to recommend Terrain.

Love the location and being surrounded by an incredible garden center. Menu is creative but needs some work - too much oil for the cauliflower steak, falafel in the vegan quinoa bowel was undercooked and the whole dish rather bland. But, fresh, organic and vegan friendly and I look forward to trying their brunch menu. Service...... Server forgot our drinks and didn't return for a long time, and we are fairly certain that our entrees were mistakenly given to the couple next to us, who arrived much later and coincidentally had ordered the exact same entrees.

I love having lunch at Terrain, mostly for the setting in their lovely glassed in (or not) garden. The food can be really wonderful as it was this time, with a few imperfections like soup not being hot enough. Or the food can be disappointing when I ordered a mushroom quiche that had no mushrooms in it and the crust tasted store bought. But I still return again and again as the menu is often inventive with many vegetarian and healthy options. Yesterday's not hot nor mushroomed enough mushroom soup was still delicious and the avocado toast was beautifully spiced.

I love eating at Terrain. One thing that seemed a bit odd was that they ran out of a few things on the menu at 7:30 PM on a Saturday night. I now this place is busy, so you'd think they'd be able to cover their menu at 7:30, but oddly that wasn't the case. A bit of a disappointment. On the flip side, the food they actually DID have was delicious. Service was great.

My second visit to Terrain - this visit was much better than my first experience. The service was much better, but not quite attentive enough, (ie: additional beverages and drink refills). Food was very good, one item came out incorrectly, but was fixed right away.

Unfortunately first impressions do count. First time here and I was given dirty silverware twice in a row and then decided to use my fingers. Other than that food was good and service was good though It was very noisy.

I used to wait tables and rolled silverware. Obviously someone does this job in this establishment. They should be trained to rewash silverware caked with food!

A nice surprise. The food was delicious. We each had a salad. My friend topped her salad with salmon and it was a very generous piece of fish! Cappuccino was also delish. Would come back.

Terrene provides most interesting environment a plant store with a “natural food and other eatery.
The service was excellent and the menu provided a diverse choice of unique items such as pumpkin flavored food skin salmon etc.
Maître d’ was very gracious and helpful the waitress Margo was most helpful and provided excellent service
Major critique is the noise level one finds it difficult to indulgent conversation across the table. I don’t know the answer but this is the major drawback

I have to say that this place has everything going for it except for flavor. It was some of the blandest food I have had in a restaurant...

The plates looked pretty, but the food was boring. And it didn't have to be.

Love this spot, beautifully decorated and service is consistently good. The bread in a flower pot is sooo good. I wouldn't say there's real value for money here, small portions, but you go for the wider experience, which is very good.

Table was full of crumbs at 10 am (when they open). The noise level was only a bit much because of the table of 12 Britney’s having a birthday brunch which is typical Westport so it goes with the territory, one couple asked to move because “they left their teenage daughter home for a reason” lol. Nonetheless, the food is great so we powered through.

I had the cauliflower sandwich which sounds like an interesting idea but was barely a slab of fried cauliflower in an hamburger bun. Still good but fairly basic.
The bread is very good.

The service and food was fabulous! The ambiance added to the experience of eating delicious and beautifully presented dinner entrees. We had time to walk around the store before our reservation- such a wonderful setting and so much fun finding unique items! Will definitely go back in the spring and summer, as we’ve already experienced Terrain in the fall and winter.

The most magical place to be during the holidays. The greenery and live plants and decorations and gifts are a visual delight. The staff is friendly; our food was tasty coolish and our wait person never came back to ask about more coffee. And who serves eggs over easy on a plank where the yolks run right through the cracks to the table? I don’t mind paying for the ambience and I would like the food to be better and not over priced.

I have eaten here before and usually the food here is good. On this occasion, a ladies' holiday lunch, it was not as good as usual. We all had the special quiche, which was tough and rubbery. Some nice wine helped. But the noise level was so loud that we could hardly hear each other. That was our main complaint. Terrain, please invest in some baffles to dampen the noise.

Good food at decent prices. Still a cafe though. Relatively unrefined in many ways (you can see right into the non-aesthetic kitchen from your table), etc.

With all the options in Westport, this is a '3' for dinner. Probably better for an appetizer or as a lunch spot.
