    I am deeply disappointed to share that the Tierra Sur restaurant failed to meet the high standards it once set. As someone who used to be a devoted fan, it pains me to see it transform into an extremely overpriced establishment that falls way short of its culinary promises. One would expect a truly exceptional dining experience when spending $200+ per person, but sadly, the cuisine has become average at best. In the past, every dish would tantalize the taste buds with unique flavors and creativity. It is disheartening to see such lackluster and below average cuisine without the innovation that once made this destination restaurant worth the journey.

    The wine and high-level service were the shining stars at this Kosher restaurant. However, at the prices of the dining experience ($300) our culinary expectations were very high and we were disappointed. The half chicken was small, well seasoned and tender, but a tad undercooked. The 14 oz Argentinian ribeye steak had large clumps of exterior fat that comprised over one third of the steak. The meat had absolutely no marbling and was tough and sinuous. Had I purchased this steak from a market, this would have a USDA Select Grade (the lowest) piece of meat. Seventy dollars for a piece of steak where twenty five dollars was spent on inedible, large hunks of fat that frankly, would have been trimmed away by any other fine dining establishment, made our dining experience less than ideal. The quality of their wines shined and I would suggest partaking in the wine tasting offerings at the wine bar and skipping the dining room experience.

    Spectacular food that just so happens to be kosher! The service was absolutely impeccable and the wine pairings were an excellent way of tying in Herzog’s food concept with their wine. Everything from the bread to the dessert was expertly crafted and the explanations regarding the wine pairings were phenomenal. Hands down best kosher spot in the U.S.

    The service and food was first class. Vincent, our waiter, is also a trained sommelier and had a very thorough and entertaining presentation for our meal choices. Robert greeted us a the door with a very warm welcome. The steak was cooked to perfection and the non-dairy cheesecake dessert was indescribably delicious . I would remove the "challah bread" however and either serve nothing or serve a more artisanal type bread.

    Highly recommend! Great servers, very nice and accommodating hosts, and wonderful food! We went on New Year’s day when they had a special buffet, and it was one of the best buffets we have ever had. I rarely remember the exact food after dining at a restaurant months later, and I still remember how great the waffles were. And I wouldn’t even say I am a fan of waffles normally. So what I’m trying to say is that everything is so good -even things that you wouldn’t typically love are made so well there- that you might end up loving it like I did.

    The meat at the carving station was good. But that’s it. The desserts were hard. The soup was burned (how do you burn soup?), and in addition to the $95 fee we were charged for brunch, we were charged a mandatory $22 per person gratuity fee. They mentioned gratuity was not included but $22 which was undisclosed and sprang on us when they brought the bill? Totally unfair!! Left a very bad taste in our mouths (no pun intended). Their events are ok but this one was horrible!! We may not even go back to their other events based on this bad experience.

    Christmas dinner was served as a buffet. The choices Were very nice with several protein items such as prime Rib and salmon. Our reservations were at 6 pm and Buffet ended at 8. Unfortunately, the food had been Sitting out in warming containers for some time and were Very dried out. The vegetables in particular were Extremely dry and tough. The service staff were absolutely terrific and helpful.

    Mostly excellent. The fish was overcooked but they took care of it. They forgot our wine bottle but eventually brought it. Extremely friendly people working. most of the food was outstanding. The rose was ok.....expected that to be better. Would be nice to have a few more affordable yet delicious wine options on the menu.

    Server was very knowledgeable about wine pairings and friendly. Busser was attentive and friendly, realized I could not answer him after saying netilat yadim and before saying hamotzi and waited until after to come back w/o issue. Food was excellent (had the soup, chicken pasta, and bison steak, w/ truffle dessert; wife had salad, meatballs, and lambchops, w/ pear dessert). Main course was fantastic, but my favorite is always the appetizers b/c the chef is inventive with them in really impressive ways. New setup does force you to pay for wine pairing, so if one of the diners doesn't drink you're paying for something you're not using.

    Thanksgiving dinner was a buffet with a price of $115 plus 22% service charge. I was expecting a unique meal with high end choices. Unfortunately this was not the case. Fried turkey was probably the most interesting. Beef chuck roast and salmon were the other entrees. A few salads and stuffing and sweet potato casserole. They were good but certainly not interesting or unique. The service was below average with waiters having to be asked several times to pick up plates and not exchanging cutlery even for dessert.

    We went to the thanksgiving dinner. All the for was Luke warm or cold (the turkey, salmon and beef and the sides were all cold too) the table service was good, we had 4 generations and not one person enjoyed the food and thought it was way over priced for the flavor, temperature and quality.

    The thanksgiving buffet was shameful. Very little selection, most foods were undercooked and/or cold. The turkey was okay and the only edible side was the dressing. If I were at a sit down meal, I would have sent the food back. And for $150/person including tax and 22% service charge, I'd expect more than chuck roast. The staff was the only bright spot of the meal. Shameful!!

    This place can put out some awesome food, however it is not consistent. The ambience of being in a winery is for sure nice and their wines are good from their selections. I guess it is a little more that hit or miss on what you order. Just get selective and eat before you get there. Ser ice is too not h though and makes up for their lack of food quality consistency.

    Have been eating here for years & LOVED it; Sadly the quality of the food has taken a nosedive & the service is now horrible to match the horrible food. Food has either no seasoning or too much salt and no subtlety at all; items we ordered were either forgotten or wrong; service is inconsistent at best. Spent nearly $700 on one dinner & one lunch (needed to make sure that it wasn’t an off night & that recent reviews weren’t wrong) and sadly after more then 14 years coming here, we will not be back…very sad…
