Terrain Garden Café - Westport Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
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.
Went with 3 friends for lunch after shopping in this lovely store. Two of us had the Kale salad with chicken and two had the omelet. The ladies having omelets thought they were delicious--with very large portions that they couldn't finish. Our kale salads were perfect: tender chicken, the kale leaves were fresh and tender and sweet. The salads also had sweet potato, pumpkin seeds and shaved pear slices. The dressing was lightly on the salad and was just the right blend of tastes. Truly--this was one of the best salads I've ever ordered anywhere! We both cleaned our plates! Of course the bread was scrumptious as well! Great experience.
We had a wonderful dinner here! The Farm House Board was amazing! The Sweet Potato Soup, Pear Toast & Fall Salad with Salmon were also quite delicious!! The decor was beautiful and the wait staff was very friendly & attentive! We will be back for dinner & brunch.
This place has gone downhill over the years. Bread tasted stale. (One of our highlights formerly). Food was over cooked. Waitress was aloof and was trying to be maybe cool or something but not attentive at all. Felt cliquey atmosphere amongst staff. Won’t go back. Shame as lovely store.
I love the atmosphere of Terrain and am a regular. This visit was disappointing because I made a 1:15 reservation to bring my parents (in their 80's) here for lunch. We were kept waiting for almost 25 minutes with only a cursory apology. Others with reservations were kept waiting as well. I highly recommend they take fewer reservations and seat people promptly. The food was very good as usual but this experience left a bad taste...
We just loved our brunch at Terrain. The menu is creative, the food is exceptionally well executed, the service is attentive and of course the ambiance of the store and cafe is unique! Bonus points for the fun shopping after lunch. I can't wait to go back again. Well done, Terrain, well done.
Always a pleasant experience - the menu, ambiance and service make for a special experience each and every time. Something on the menu for all, especially healthy and vegetarian conscious. The entire atmosphere is energized, yet is relaxing as well- and oh so beautiful!
This really is a very special place. Lively crowd and of course, the lighting and decor is magical. The food was really amazing, unusual offerings but nothing disappointed. Need to add more choices to dessert menu. While the waitress was very personable and professional...there were times where we felt forgotten and large space in time where no one attended to us, so I think that needs a bit of work but overall.....a fabulous experience.
Terrain is a local favorite, I meet friends and clients and eat there regularly and it is usually a treat. I know a reservation is necessary and I made one for 1:30, very disappointed that despite arriving 15 minutes early for our reservation and checking in with the hostess, they seated 2 other tables before us who had arrived after we did and despite having a reservation we had to wait an additional 25 minutes to be seated with no apology or acknowledgement for the inconvenience!
