Terre Rouge is a French Inspired Bistro located in the heart of Downtown Markham. The restaurant is influenced by locally sourced, organic, farm to table fare that is wholesome, and down to earth like the cuisine served in Parisian Bistros. Executive Chef Forrest Liu was classically trained by Jean Georges Vongerichten in Shanghai, and his menu is inspired by a modern approach to Traditional French Cuisine, focusing on simplicity and flavour.

Food was fantastic and ambiance was great. You really can't go wrong with the prix fixe menu if you want to try a few of their dishes.
Service could be improved by having staff communicate what is going on or what is on your dish.

I had chosen Terre Rouge based on a recommendation to bring a small group of women to celebrate a friend who is moving to another city. From the moment we arrived, we felt rushed. We were not all sitting down when asked if we knew what we wanted to drink. At first we thought that perhaps the restaurant was expecting a busy night and needed to turn over tables quickly but it barely became 1/3 occupied through the evening. Customer service definitely needs to be friendlier. The menu is interesting but my dinner was disappointing and no one at the table commented on theirs. The kale salad was excellent and so was the choice of mushrooms for the risotto but it was not as good as what would be made at an italian restaurant. The crème brûlée was a big let down, too warm and thin underneath that sugar crust. I don’t think I will be rushing to return any time soon.

Had the lobster tacos, strip loin and lobster. Tacos and lobster were great, however the strip loin was not anything special. Not sure if it was the gravy on top or the cut of steak but I did not enjoy it. The creme brulee was a little watery. The ambiance was lovely and the staff did a great job at making sure we were looked after.

I brought my gf here a couple of weeks ago and it was a fantastic experience. The food was perfect ( we got the black cod and pork shank) and the service was kind. One of the servers didn't notice us for a while in the beginning so we had to wait a while before he came to us to take our order. He was very polite and offered a free dessert as an apology, which was also delicious in itself. Lighting was a bit dim that we couldn't actually see our dishes very well where we were sitting up against the wqll, but other than that no complaints about the evening. My partner and I really enjoyed this place that we have plans on coming again in the future.

Awesome food. Both of us had the menu, one with filet mignon and one with black cod. Both the meat and the fish were very well prepared and tasted absolutely delicious. Service was very good too. During the main course it became pretty loud due to a group event next to our table. But I just consider that bad luck. Highly recommend this place for outstanding French style food.

Friendly Staff! Bread was served after we have already finished appetizer, and I think they were slightly understaffed for a Saturday night crowd (2 big long tables of birthday celebration). But overall, they did best of their ability.

Food wise was good, not exceptional but good enough for a night out.

If you live around the area, this is a good place to chill then go for a movie next door.

Will go back again XD

Our dining experience was wonderful! Service was amazing and we really like the chef coming to our table to ask about our food himself. The restaurant ambience sets a very relaxing mood which was a great way to start the weekend. We will definitely come back to try out their other items on the menu.

The waitress came to us without smile, she did not ask about coat check as well. We ordered two PRIX FIXE, two ribbed eye steaks, and a pizza. The black cod was ok, but the rice came with it was not well-cooked. We had one truffle fries on the side with the steak, it’s cold, neither fresh nor crunchy...$10 dollor for the fries and it’s not even freshly made lol the waitress took the bread away without asking, and I waited so long for her to refill my water...Obviously the service is not unacceptable, they seem like they are not well-trained, and not ready to serve people.For the record,the restaurant opens at 5pm, we want in by about 8:30...We paid about $3xx for the meal and I think it’s not worth to come again.

We came to Terre Rouge to celebrate our anniversary. I made that comment when I booked the reservation and they listened to that comment with giving us a more quiet secluded area away from other people so we could enjoy a quiet evening. All the waiters and maître-d wished us a happy anniversary which was very nice.

Ambiance ok but a bit tighter than I would have liked/ cramped feeling. Also empty wine boxed behind tables, under staircase made it look like resto is looking for storage space in the middle of the seating area. Seats are a little too close to the kitchen. Doesn’t really convey the feeling of an upscale or even remotely elevated restaurant.

Once when you enter the restaurant, you already have the feeling of crowded, the place is pretty small even they have the 2nd level but they have a party, the ground level 's table arrangement is really bad,
they tried to put table to table , you could clearly see and heard what the table next to you are talking and eating and the same as the others will heard you. You cannot move your chair back a bit as the other table;s chair is just at your back. They got window from ceiling to floor , unfortunately they are facing west so the sun is shinning on you and it is even stronger as they also got reflection from the other building, they dont have curtains or shades so you will need to put on your sunglasses or sun hat
while you are eating, there might be one or 2 table behind the wall that is hidden from the reflection
but i was thinking their arrangement and design is really not considerate. We have complaint about the sun is always on us and i have to use my hand and the menu to block the sun the whole time, so you could understand how could you enjoy your food. The hostesss just laugh and said yes it is too bright and nothing is done.
Looking at the menu , they dont have that much choice as they are small restaurant, but the price is belongs to 5star's price, the food is not worth for the price and their standard is not 5stars, i ordered the fillet Mignon of CAD45.00 but it taste like a round steak not tender and no taste of beef. That is why i said it cost you 5star but give you 3stars quality. My friend ordered the Cod and it is 34.00 with the risotto, the risotto is not chewy , its powdery . The fish is ok.
I thought they are French restaurant but after they are just a small crowded fast food place. Very disappointed.
