Terra American Bistro
Greatly appreciate the Gluten Free options! Excellent brunch.
This place is lovely, food was superb, server was very knowledgeable, and we had a blast.
Thank you for the review.
We all enjoyed our dining experience at Terra American Bistro on Monday evening. The food was enjoyed by all of us. The only thing I didn't care for much, was the squash. It was kind of bland. But, the Brussel Sprouts with the Balsamic glaze, were to die for! I had Grandma's Brisket, and it was delicious! I also had the Banana Bread pudding, and it was also very yummy. Everyone one of us agreed that the service was wonderful, and the food was Terra-iffic! We had dined here before this, but it had been a few years. The menu has definitely changed, but the food is still just as tasty!
Terra-iffic- we love that! Thank you for the great feedback. Do you have a favorite you would like to see return?
It was FANTASTIC as always. Best little gem. Food and Service are always excellent.
Sweet- so glad you loved it.
The prices were reasonable, but the protein (we had Salmon) was very small. The taste was delicious.
This was our first time back to Terra since the new decor and menu changes were installed. It is still a great dining option. The service was exceptional. The food was well presented and very good. Our wine was a favorite. I’m not sure about the new dining room chairs however. I was a bit uncomfortable and my husband was too.
We appreciate your feedback. Thank you.
The fish special was a winner. The chicken ginger potstickers were tasty but tepid. Wine service was attentive enough ... ice bucket for white wine good. Very delicious sides of Brussels sprouts and carrots accompanied a large and flavorful pork chop, that needed a steak knife. My first time at Terra, and I’ll be back to try other dishes that sound great on menu.
My mouth is watering reading your review. Thank you for the feedback. See you around soon.
This is my favorite restaurant! Every plate I have tried there has been wonderful. I love how the menu changes from time to time.
Thanks for taking time to leave us feedback. Do you have a favorite plate?
Still our favorite restaurant and fav bartender, Christine.
There has never been a time we have come away from Terra American Bistro feeling less than satisfied. No exception here either as another successful dinner was had by all with our latest dining experience. From the exceptional pumpkin ravioli , the short ribs, salmon, chipotle steak, to the chicken rice bowl all entrees were perfectly prepared and we enjoyed them all.
We appreciate all the love. We love what we do.
Excellent service, great food and lovely ambiance! We will definitely go back the next time we are in town.
Super! See you again.
The place looked like a cafe with plastic chairs and we were a party of five and we got stuck at a table for four with no room. They didn’t know where to put the appetizers or all the drinks there was literally no room for five people at this table. We asked to move to a larger table and she said no. Then the server asked us why we were at this small table we said ask your coworker! It was a joke!! The food was horrible the fish for two of us was snapper it was raw and gooey it was really bad we sent it back and said keep it. He offered other choices or to recook it we said no thanks!!! The ambiance is horrible the food was bad it ruined our night out for our party of five!! We will not be back.
The main entrees were very good. The side dishes need a little work. Squash was pretty hard. Mashed potatoes not so good. Infusion drinks were great. Service fine.
From the moment we walked into the restaurant and was greeted by a friendly hostess` our dining experience was absolutely delightful. We totally enjoyed the pot stickers, calamari and toasted bread and brie appetizers followed by a chicken rice bowl, chipotle flavored steak to die for and the macaroni cheese and Brussels sprouts accompanied by the tenderest beef you can imagine. We love the flavors and the presentation of the entrees and enjoy visiting Terra as often as possible.
ALWAYS THE BEST....VERY CONSISTANT. WE HAVE NEVER HAD A BAD MEAL AT TERRA AND ALL OF OUR OUT OF TOWN GUESTS ENJOY IT AS WELL.
Thank you for the review.
We love sitting at the bar and interacting with Christina, enjoy her energy, friendliness and her bartending skill. Food is always good, sometimes outstanding. We feel like we're family when we come in.
So great to have you. Thank you for the review.
Excellent food, the baked Brie was to die for! Colleen our waitress was the best! We will definitely be back!
Awesome! See you soon.
Comfort food, nice location and friendly atmosphere
Thanks for stopping in and checking us out. We would love to have you back anytime.
Food and experience were both good. Would go again. Short ribs and meatloaf are delicious
We like to explore new restaurants during restaurant week and Terra was amazing! We can't stop raving about the banana bread pudding and how shabby chic the decor was. Definitely coming back! :-)
Glad to have you anytime. Thanks for choosig Terra.
1. Fig jam does not go with lamb. 2. Don't grill lamb chops with jam on them, totally burnt to a crisp on the outside and raw(not rare) on the inside. 3. Risotto can not be served salty and crunchy. 4. Any greens on the plate should be editable, not tough and bitter. 5. If you order short ribs it shouldn't be pot roast. It should taste like short ribs. 6. If you order brussel sprouts and have to cut them with a steak knife that's just wrong. 7. I ordered a dessert from the menu, lemon curd with meringue bits, I got two very hard lemon cookies with a slight hint of lemon, kind of. They forgot to take the lemon curd off the menu. I was told later.
While cooked well, the food could have used more seasoning. Fortunately, there was salt on the table. There was a strong fish smell, which was likely due to do much fish being served. However, it was not positive for the overall dining experience. The wine was good, but Ball/Kerr jars used for drinking glasses is not my preference; even for water.
On a busy Sunday, the service was prompt professional and polite. The brunch menu is very creative, delicious and plentiful. The noise level is high yet your conversations are audible. The cocktail menu is excellent. Their basic Bloody Mary is a real pickle. Enjoy!
Fun review to read, thank you! I will share your comments with our team.
Delicious quality meal! Colleen was sooo friendly & helpful!
Glad to hear you enjoyed your experience.
Love this ‘farm to table” bistro, food always delicious, service always great.
Thnk you! You are welcome anytime.
We were a large group celebrating a 95th birthday. Staff was delightful and extremely accomodating. Food was terrific as usual. I'm not a regular yet but should be!
Happy Birthday! Thank you for choosing Terra.
We always like this neighborhood jewel. Love the options of protein + choice of 3 sides. Food was delicious and wine and beer selection was great.
Thank you for the review.
Service was as terrible. Our server forgot to put our order in.
I am so sorry...We have some new staff and she thought she had sent the order to the kitchen, but when she realized and went to talk with you, you had finished with your appetizers and just walked out of the restaurant without saying anything to the staff. Not to mention not even offering to pay for the appetizers that you ate. Some things happen; Not every dining experience is perfect.
Staff were friendly and kept checking on us if we needed anything. Food was good.
There is one ingredient in the mixed veggie side that comes out to hard and tough to eat. Otherwise, the food is superb!
We had poor service. The restaurant was empty and the server took a long time to take our order. She never checked on us and we sat a very long time waiting for our table to be cleared. The server was standing & talking to someone at the bar. My friend finally walked up to ask for help and the server said she forgot about us and that it was really late to clear the dirty plates but she did. I’ve been coming here for years and have never had such bad service.
We are so sorry this happened. We wanted to contact you, but we can't determine which reservation was yours and therefore don't have your contact info. The Chef's wife was in and hasn't been for a long time and your server got caught up in a conversation with her and we apologize profusely. This is obviously not our norm and we would like to offer you something. If you could please email us and we will send you something. Again, we are so sorry!!!!
First time here and the overall experience was outstanding. The food was excellent as well as friendly fast service. The sons chef visited our table and we learned more about the food and sourcing. It's a bit plain on the inside but neat and clean. This place is a must try for all that appreciate a chef's upgrade of American classics.
We would love to have you back soon. Thanks for the great review.
Always a treat to revisit Terra and see what's new on the menu—and also what favorites remain. This time I tried the delicious three-meat meatloaf, which was dolloped with just the right amount of not-too-heavy gravy, and followed up with the lavender-scented creme brulée. I wouldn't have minded if the lavender taste had been a little stronger, but I know from cooking with it myself that a little lavender can go a long way, so the chef certainly made the right choice. My friend's po-boy sandwich was reported to be as wonderful as it looked, and she happily lapped up every bit of the lemon tart. To top it off, the chef came to visit and welcomed our (hardly critical at all) feedback.
This was fun to read. I love what I do and I love sharing it with our customers. I will let the team know you were pleased.
Incredibly food and atmosphere!!! Definitely will be back!
Great to hear! Thank you for the 5 star review.
Love the menu and protein and 3 sides concept. Not too huge a menu, which is a good thing; it has focus. Very promising if executed. However, food temp and service issues prevented the experience from being more that just okay. This place could be a gem.
The service was impeccable.We had the brisket, meatloaf, halibut and short ribs all incredibly tasty.
Don,t leave without having the Mac and cheese, cardamom carrots or Brussels sprouts.Finished the meal off with the bourbon banana bread pudding—- all I can say is Mmmm good. Also best cappuccino ever, thanks for a great experience
Awesome descriptions! Our mouths are watering just reading this. Thank you for the review.
Delicious food by a wonderful staff. Close to home and easy on the wallet.
See you back soon.
I hadn't been to Terra in a very long time but it was convenient for my clients and I was wanting to go back. They did not disappoint! Our waiter, Mike, was more than courteous and accommodating-took great care of our party of four. We were at the table from 6:30 to 9:00 PM (we were having a great time visiting and enjoying the food and drink) and we never felt rushed. Food was fantastic and a great value compared to other restaurants with similarly good fare. The brisket was fantastic and I've never had such a great cheese buscuit (with gravy). For dessert we shared the brownie with home made ice cream...OMG! I won't wait so long to return.
I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your expperiece. Thank you for the feedback. We would love to have you back anytime.
