As an appetizer we ordered a salmon tart and it was spoiled. We went for dinner on Thursday night and I’m still sick in bed.

Great kosher experience for anyone who loves good phone.
Drove an hour to and then back from Tierra Sur and found the Thanksgiving dinner well worth the effort
Then again, it was nice not to have to cook, bake and clean.

We sat outside so it was very quiet and pleasant. The food was beyond delicious! The prime rib was perfectly cooked and like butter in your mouth. The apple cobbler was heavenly, and we did the wine taster and each wine was better than the last. Highly recommend!

This is a very special place. Was delighted with the outdoor space. The food was quite good, and they split the ribeye steak into two very generous portions. The sauce was a bit salty. Was an extremely pleasant lunch but a bit pricy.

The staff at Tierra Sur go out of their way to make sure you have a pleasurable dining experience.
Overall, the food was very good. The only exception was the items served with the fried chicken. While the butternut squash was good, the bread chunks were an off texture. The braised short ribs were perfect, the duck ragu excellent, and both the pumpkin flan and apple cobler had unique notes to them that made them unexpectedly good.
We were there for a birthday, and the staff made the evening extra-special.

Having missed our anniversary, we decided to go for just a quiet date night. Although busy, it didn’t feel crowded and the noise level was low enough for us to actually talk to each other from across the table. The set menu was far from limiting; it allowed us to quickly order and move on the main reason we were there, to enjoy each other’s company. The food service was prompt without being hurried, attentive without being intrusive. Each course was delectable and well presented. We enjoyed going out of our comfort zone and trying some new dishes. It was a very special evening indeed!

how can they charge 20% tip, if the service is deplorable and the food is average?

A party of 3, we ordered a hamburger, and it came with cheese and bacon. This is a Kosher Restaurant and Jewish people are not used to this kind of hamburger, or combination of food. Why do you do that?

I recalled they didn't have this kind of combo in the past, so I asked the waiter about this, and he said "they have changed the way, because the chef doesn't like to deal with "options", (?!?!) so they serve with "everything"

They have only 3 items for main course, and one of them is the Hamburger for $28 , yes it's not a typo $28. I saw most of the people ordering the burger and chips. Can you believe that they don't give you Ketchup as a part of the service?

So I asked the waiter for ketchup, he lasted more than 8 minutes to bring it in. My food was cold already......

I ordered a Sparkling water, and the waiter assistant refill my glass with regular water.......

We spent $200 and it was a real disaster.

Never coming back

Really good food. They use touchless payment system. The payment system is pre-programmed to add 20% tip. That would be fine except that they already added a 20% tip to the bill. By adding the tip to the bill, I was also charged state tax on the tip. So two things could be improved:
1. Tip should be added after tax calculated
2. If a 20% tip is already added to the bill the, touchless payment system should default to zero tip, not another 20%

Halibut cooked perfectly was kept moist. Very tasty.
Steak was well prepared. Mushrooms and potatoes nice additions.

Wished they served shoestring potatoes like they used to.

We have eaten at this restaurant before. This time things were a little different. Fillet Mignon was not on the menu. The online menu showed salmon but it was not available either. A little disappointed. However the food is very good but overpriced.

My Wife and I enjoy spending significant anniversaries at Tierra Sur.
From the appetizers to the main course to the desert!- unmatched Kosher dining. Kudos to the Chef and his staff and the hospitable and courteous service. The General Manager, Andre, even spent time with us and explained the amazing 9 generations of wine makers who now have 80% of the Kosher wine distribution in the World. Thank you to all!

The food was unique and interesting. The appetizer (Duck in pasta) was very enjoyable. The brisket was not as good (way too fatty and dry).

The biggest problem was the service. The wait staff basically forgot about me and let me sit at the table for over 20 minutes without checking on me or to inquire about dessert which was part of the fixed price. I had to walk to the front to flag down another server.

The ambiance is great and hopefully will return to try again.

The winery is always delicious! However, this trip was disappointing as they did not update the website to show the very limited dinner menu (replaced by the usual lunch menu) and as such, we drove a total of 3 hours for less than the experience we were hoping for. Additionally, we asked for bread when we started the meal and multiple times throughout the meal but only got it after our main courses were served. Our main waiter was excellent but one of the serving staff assisting us was not as professional. I've been to the winery multiple times and will be back as it is an amazing experience. I'm sad to say this trip wasn't up to par.

Ambiance was not what I expected for the $$$$ spent. Service was slow. Music playing was way too energetic for the restaurant (Led Zeppelin, 70-80's rock in a fancy kosher restaurant??). Food was excellent though, if that's all you are looking for.

My daughter received her medium rare hamburger TWICE so rare it was inedible and served when we were all through with our meal. When asked to cook it properly the THIRD time so she could take it “to go”, the undercooked second burger was packed up. Fried chicken was dry. Desserts were dry. Only thing good was the wine. Never again.
