Tierra Sur Restaurant, inside Herzog Wine Cellars new state-of-the-art winery, is a New American seasonal cuisine,

With Tierra Sur, Gabe Garcia's cooking is rustic, unpretentious and ingredient driven utilizing local farmers when ever available. Menu items such as aged rib-eye steak and wild salmon are cooked outdoors over an open flame. The menu also includes house-made organic corn tortillas with exotic fillings such as birria (chili-braised lamb) with salsa cruda and grilled achiote-marinated red snapper with tomatillo salsa. A high point of the menu is the prix fixe wine tasters meal with wine pairings for each course.

This was my first time eating in the main dining room and it was as good as I thought it would be. We both ordered mushroom soup for the appetizer and it was very good -- most mushroom soups are heavy on the cream, but this one was just right. The ribeye was fantastic. I ordered the 16 oz and had it in my lunch salad for 2 days following!
But...that being said, don't think I'll be going back too often. We live in Ojai and there are a few places in my neighborhood that are just as good -- and cost a little less. I found it to be overpriced. Our bill was around $300 for soup, sharing a dinner salad, entree, bottle of wine (and a moderate wine) and dessert.
It is located in an industrial area in Oxnard.

Still the best restaurant in Ventura County for both food and proper service. Waiters know exactly what is in they are serving you. Locally sourced, highest quality ingredients makes it our favorite restaurant to enjoy.

I gave a 3 in overall because they was only one server and an assistant.
She couldn’t cover the 10 tables and I needed to wait for many things
She worked hard and the best but you should have another person working there

This is the best restaurant Kosher restaurant on the West Coast, but you would never know that it was a kosher establishment. The food is creative, local and fabulous. The price is very fair considering the ingredients used. It is especially nice to go to a wine tasting before the meal. I come here every time I come to California.

My husband and I dined at Tierra Sur for our birthdays (three days apart). This was our first experience at this lovely restaurant. Everything was perfect. Our waiter, Jacob, was polite, knowledgeable, attentive, but not intrusive. The food was delicious.So was the recommended wine, of course product of the Herzog Winery. The location is a bit odd (in an industrial neighborhood, due to the fact that the restaurant is in the winery building), but once you are in, it is very beautiful. I already returned for a lunch two days later, and this will be our new gourmet dining go-to in Ventura County. Compliments to the restaurant management for great staff!

Tierra Sur is probably one of the finest kosher restaurants in Southern California aside from the fact it is in an industrial park. The wine bar area has been expanded and serves light bites. We hadn't been there in over a year and were a bit disappointed with the limited restaurant menu. Everything we ate was good but there were no light entrees. All menu items very rich in flavor/sauces. The prices also seemed much higher than previously averaging $125/person with one bottle of wine for 4. Wine selection was outstanding and new selections were offered that had not been distributed to stores as yet.

The dishes are quite creative, and that's already enough for us to want to go back. The service staff was impressive, and that definitely makes us want to go back. Excellent vegan options. All food is prepared in a Kosher kitchen.

We visited Tierra Sur to celebrate a birthday and they did not disappoint. We started with Platillos of hummus, chile rellenos and spaghetti squash. I would repeat the hummus and chile rellenos. I had the special featuring Mahi Mahi tacos. I could only eat two of the three following the Platillos but my husband managed to eat his three and my left over one. They were delicious. This is a Kosher dairy free fine dining restaurant so when my son ordered a burger he was a bit surprised that they could provide the bacon but not the cheese. He said it was great just the same. Our attentive, polite server Johnathan surprised us with the wonderful presentation of a table side flaming Baked Alaska. Again, no dairy but over the top delicious. I am not a wine expert but my Pinot Grigio from Herzog was buttery and fruity and I hope to return and purchase a bottle. Only con was the day was windy and the smoke from the outdoor grill seemed to find me whenever the patio door was opened. But this was not enough to take away from our dining experience. Thank you, Tierra Sur. We will return.

I love Terra Sur however i did not have a good experience this time. I was there for an aniversary dinner which the staff knew via open table. Staff did not acknowledge us. I ordered the Uraguyan rib eye the steak was delicious however i could only consume half of it. Half of it I had to spit out which was embarrassing. I asked the waiter was normal me knowing full well ot wasn't. The waiter said yes tit eas normal but nobody else around us was spitting out chunks of fat. They should have offered and perhaps i should have insisted they take the steak back. I do recommend Terra Sur but they dropped the ball on this occasion

We were especially impressed with our waitress whose warmth and caring was very obvious: explaining menu clearly, personal touch, even taking pictures in and out!
It was a Sunday experience we'll remember, especially my friends from out-of-town!

Steak (16oz CAB ribeye) outstanding. Sunchoke soup very good.

My only negative comment is that the salmon portion was so tiny it was embarrasing. My friends are not red meat eaters so they ordered the salmon. The portion was so small it was embarassing. Also the salmon’s sides, if there were to be any, were invisible.

Worst steak ever tried to eat.like a piece of boot leather.unable to eat it,and I like meat ,any meat.
The waiter described it as real angus meat.....felt like a leftover from the day.wasn’t soft,difficult to cut and virtually tasteless....and all that for $54!!!!!!!!!!left half of it on the plate!!!!!!
Felt cheated to be quite honest....was an idiot that I didn’t demand my money back.
Had heard such good reports about you,but wouldn’t recommend you .
8oz for $54 dollars ....it’s called ..chutzpah
Oh and by the way....before i’d left your premises ,already felt the indigestion setting in.
Have eaten in NEW YORK,LONDON and TEL AVIV but have never felt a waste of my money as now

We had a late lunch on Sunday there. Place is closed on Friday and Sat for sabbath. Is located in an industrial type area in Oxnard so its a nice surprise. Excellent service and wine explanation from Gina, our server. We split the rib eye special-it was delicious — perfectly cooked as medium rare smoked with a delicious berry glaze, purple potatoes, mushrooms and greens. Also a side of the squash and salad. We also did a 2 flight wine each with our meal. Definitely will come back!

They wouldn’t substitute one type of lettuce for another(both were on the menu). The entree dish of gnocchi was redicules small. They refused to add a side dish of mushrooms .
The Uruguayan steak was hard and had a big piece of ligament.
The flourless chocolate cake was excellent.

My wife and I went there for lunch to celebrate our 20th anniversary and it was the best meal we’ve had in years. Service was prompt and attentive. The dishes — from appetizers to main to dessert— were exquisite both in taste and presentation. Lamb bacon was a unique and delicious ingredient that made a chicken sandwich an out of this world experience. We went to wine tasting right before lunch so we didn’t order any alcohol with the meal. The check for the two of us came to just over $100 but was well worth it.
