Tierra Sur at Herzog Wine Cellars
Book your next event with us
We absolutely loved everything about our visit to Tierra Sur. The service, food and ambiance were all outstanding and remarkable.
Great ambiance - delicious food and wine. Really unique
Bravo - fantastic food, great friendly service. The food was totally amazing. Both the chicken a d the steak were superb. I highly recommend for any special occasion, as it's truly special.
I thought the price was expensive. 4 people cost $300, event for kosher that is high
Fabulous food, wine and service. The waiter recommended a Syrah that wasn’t on the wine list but went perfectly with our meal. The bread and oil were delicious and served piping hot. My husband and I cannot wait to go back to Tierra Sur.
Tierra Sur @ Herzog Wine Cellars used to be a lovely restaurant, fine dining, amazingly nice ambiance and excellent service. We went to the Sunday brunch and it was NOTHING LIKE what we had experienced before when it was a menu service. The tables were horrible, placed out on a patio with NO AMBIANCE (cafeteria looking with extra empty wine vats randomly placed like they were out of closet space, the table tipped, no table covers...and the food service area which used to be where the dining room was - was set up like you would get at a family dinner where mom had to convert the living room or basement. The man service us meat was in shorts and, although very nice, seemed OVERLY casual for a brunch setting that charges $68/plate. There was NOTHING special about the food - the potatoes were wet (instead of crispy), the desserts were minimal, the meat was exceedingly rare, the salads were boring, tasteless or wet. I will say they have EXCELLENT peach iced tea and the lovely young lady who served us was terrific. The man who brought the bill should have been behind a closet in a research facility. He had NO joy in his face (we were not asking him for ANYTHING) and delivered and removed the bill with a scowl. But, no matter, we won't be back - this used to be one of our favorite places to eat on the way home from a weekend in Santa Barbara or Ojai. It was hard to see that lovely, excellent restaurant turn into a bad, Kosher Denny's.
You only don't get a perfect 5 on food because there was lamb wellington on the menu, which I would really really loved to have tried, only there wasn't actually any lamb wellington :(
Our experience at the restaurant was fantastic. Service is exemplary. The food is exotic in taste with attention to evey detail.
The Sunday brunch was outstanding. Don’t miss the crusted halibut, chicken and waffles, cooked to order eggs, and chocolate torte. Bottomless mimosas was a lot of fun too!
Valentine's Dinner for $300 not impressed. Food was ok. Service was ok. Drinks - not good.
The food was very good as well as the matching reserve wines. The food was 100 and 50 for the wine which was very expensive for what we got. It is nice place but the price will make me think twice before retouuring.
Great restaurant, but has become increasingly pricey recently
The best kosher steaks we have ever had, anywhere including NYC.
The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice however the value for the amount and quality of the food was poor. Some of the dishes had been salted too much and the cost was not worth it
Had been so excited leading up to our meal here , However it was really nothing special , not what one would class as fine dining but very expensive mediocre food, personally I think this restaurant is very overrated , but nice location and the self guided wine tour was very interesting
We love coming to this restaurant usually.
The service was great, but the food was less than average.
We ordered the charcuterie board which consisted of three components including liver pate.
The liver tasted off and when we complained the answer we receive was that ithe chef said it tastes as it should.
This ruined our taste for the rest of the evening.
Ceasar salad dressing and the horseradish aoli were weak and disappointing.
foo0d was excellent but VERY pricey.
The waiter,wines ,soup and beef cheek appetizers and empanada were excellent however the mains were not. The chicken was good but nothing spectacular and both steaks we ordered were fennel flavored. None of us like the taste of fennel and fennel awas not indicated on the menu at all .
Tierra Sur, translated to Land of the South is a priceless gem to the Ventura County area. While you can make the drive further south to Los Angeles, or up north to Santa Barbara...this place offers a competitive experience and rivals the likes of Lawry's or Mastros.
The menu changes periodically to give your pallet some variety, well the chef is consistent with staple proteins that are just enough familiar, reminding you of a past dining romance. Every dish is fresh and flavor. The wine selection is more than enough to keep you entertained. The staff is extremely welcoming and professional - always willing to make a suggestion.
The place keeps my interest and is my go to spot in the area. Once you've explored the globe and cuisine, it's challenging to be satisfied with meritocracy. Herzog is dining experience that does not disappoint and I thank everyone that works so hard to make the experience an exceptional one.
The restaurant made us feel extra special for our 25th anniversary. Our occasion was acknowledged by several members of the staff, we were served champagne upon our arrival and experienced exceptional service by our server, Austin. We enjoyed the Caesar salad, potato leek soup with truffles and Ono fish entree. I highly recommend this restaurant for its high quality menu selections, sophisticated ambience and top-notch service.
The food was spectacular and the service was impeccable!
If cost is not an issue, this restaurant is a must, especially for foodies. Not only is it kosher, but the menu is creative and dairy free. My husband was able to have desert in a restaurant for the first time in years. Baked alaska no less! The chacuterie plate was really wonderful and beutifully presented. The service was impecable. The rib eye was the best we’ve had. The hertzog, zinfanxel and cab were
Erfect with our meal. One of our party had the laamb wellington and another the handmade lamb curry pie. Both were received with rave reviews.
Without wine expect to pay $100 per person with entre, salad and desert. with wine??
Good kosher food, but didn’t live up to the hype for us.
Great food. Knowledgeable service as everything was as suggested.
Went christmas evening and wasn't informed that they would have mandatory buffet at 89.00 per person. Were also told that there was no time for wine tasting as they were booked solid.
The food was margiinal at best -- and portions extremely modest. A real disappointment after the long drive. So many wonderful kosher eateries in L.A. Save yourself the time and trouble.
Food was excellent. AmbiAnce really nice
Super disappointed for not having a full menus for lunch. The food was just okay, won’t come back if stays buffet style. The food was room temperature
Amazing ambiance, professional staff and great service
In the past we have had SUPERB service and food matched the price we were paying. My husband, daughter, and I went for my husband and I's anniversary. In the past the steak was so delicious, I had to eat the whole thing even if I was full because next day wouldn't be the same. This time, blah, I make a better steak! Dry, bland, small, I only ate half. My husband's salmon was the smallest salmon I've ever seen on his plate, very small and unsatisfying. My daughter's burger was too peppery! One bite and she had to gulp down half her water. Server came over and asked how everything was and I told her about my steak. She then started making up some excuse about the size of my steak when I didn't even mention the size as a complaint. My husband and I put on our fake smiles and just said everything was fine, because really who wants to complain about crappy food on their 8th anniversary. We've heard from our neighborhood, Tierra Sur has gone down in quality and we didn't believe it. Now..... it sucks to say, we will be taking our special nights else where. We drive an hour special for a WOW meal, but $120 worth of OK food, isn't worth it. We'll stay a fan of the wine, but we'll buy from our local grocery store.
Great combination of flavors, impressive presentation. Limited menu, but everything on it is a great choice. Very personable and welcoming to all.
This week, I had the good fortune of dining at Tierra Sur for the second time ever. The first opportunity (August 2018) was for my 23rd wedding anniversary on a Monday night. The second opportunity (December 2018) was for a business dinner with a co-worker. As this is a winery restaurant, the location is in a relatively non-descript agro-industrial area. From the outside the location is not particularly impressive - but once you are inside it's warm and well appointed. You'll walk through the bar/wine tasting area to reach the restaurant. The tables are set with white tablecloths and candles - equally appropriate for a date, anniversary, birthday or business meal. The wine selection is not exceedingly long but has truly wonderful choices. That being said, even though this is a winery restaurant, food takes center stage - from the appetizers (I can recommend the Caesar salad) to the entrees (I've had the Spencer steak twice) and finally, the delicious dessert options (I've had the Baked Alaska and the Persimmon Crostada (a galette in my book) - I prefer the Baked Alaska). Everything has been fabulous. I can't wait to return.
Fine dining experience, in an unexpected location. The staff was attentive and the dishes were inspired and creative.
What a poor experience we had at Tierra Sur. The location is incredibly odd as you park in front of an industrial office building and walk into the lobby. After finally finding the restaurant, our night continued downhill. The Lamb Curry Hand Pie sounded good, but was quite bland and desperately needed a bright note to make it more interesting. Don’t even get me started about the Foie Gras Pate: $25 for an ounce that was no more than a quarter inch wide and served on a single toast point! The cassoulet wasn’t even close to being a Cassoulet. Our waiter described it as “deconstructed“, but it was poorly constructed. While the Duck was grilled nicely, the rest left much to be desired. The beans were inedible as they had barely been cooked. Finally, in disgust, we paid the exorbitant bill and walked out without even looking at the dessert menu.
Thanksgiving was a delight. The ambience was soft and gentle, not rushed and amazingly quiet (I think the restaurant was quieter than usual). The service and food were impeccable.
The Thanksgiving Day buffet offered many tasty and appealing options, and the selection of wines was excellent. Would only recommend that a "well done" or "medium-well done" option be made more readily available to diners who do not favor rare or medium rare meats.
Most important is it’s KOSHER and in Oxnard &
Amazing dining experience.
A party for the palate.
Outstanding restaurant. Our favorite!
Amazing as always, Tierra Sur does not disappoint. Creative dishes, beautiful presentation and exemplary service. We had Spencer Steak with an ounce of foie gras - it was amazing. We also tried charcuterie board and short ribs.
The food was great, the staff extremely attentive and friendly. We were very happy with our experience.
