Absolutely fantastic restaurant. Terrific service and the food is wonderful. This is the best restaurant in York Region and holds its own with any in the GTA.
Live music was a terrific addition to an already wonderful dining experience.

I would recommend Terra to anyone looking for an exquisite dining experience.

Terra continues to be one of our favourite restaurants to go to. We hadn't visited in some time and decided to return for a special anniversary dinner. The food was absolutely amazing from start to finish. The wine and champagne recommended for our dinner was a perfect pairing. This restaurant never disappoints. Friendly staff made this a very memorable outing that we want to repeat soon with friends. Everything we had was subline but to mention just a few dishes--my husband was wowed by both the oysters and his Elk main course. My bison carpaccio was just beautiful and pistachio crusted lamb was the nicest lamb I think I've ever tasted. We will be back!

Terra blew all my expectations out of the water. I had heard about this restaurant but I didn't think it could live up to the hype and it surpassed it. The food was exquisite. I'm glad I chose Terra as the restaurant to celebrate my 40th birthday with my husband. It was absolutely perfect.

We have been regulars at Terra for almost two decades. We’ve seen the place go through many changes, but right now they are at the top of their game. The atmosphere is beautiful and cozy. The main room can get a bit loud, but the private rooms are stunning and more quiet. The food is absolutely outstanding. Occasionally they try some new items (like bison and venison) but the staples that have been on their menu for the past few years are what keeps us coming back. We’ve been there for almost all of our celebratory events: birthdays, anniversaries, even my mom hosted her 70th birthday there with over 40 people. The staff is amazing. Intuitive, amiable, and attentive, but never hovering. A couple of them have a great sense of humour and jovially and enthusiastically engage in conversation with patrons. Good drinks, known for their oyster bar (of which I don’t partake, unfortunately). Always fresh and often locally-sourced food.

This was the first really nice restaurant I ever went to around 20 years ago, and it left a lasting impression. A few years ago on a visit it was not good, the menu items I enjoyed were the same but the taste was off. Thankfully this past year, the quality has returned. The foie gras and the Gnocchi are my go to items.

I would rank this restaurant 10 stars!
From the minute we arrived as a party of 6 last nite,
the staff were absolutely outstanding all evening. I have dined at many downtown restaurants but I can honestly say Terra gives Michelin service and food quality with very generous portions.
This restaurant is an absolute hidden gem and a role model
for the best dining experience.

Intimate ambience with the space broken into separate dining areas. Live music permeates all the dining areas. Staff are warm and helpful. Manhattans were prepared quickly and mixed well. Seared foie gras was excellent and accompanied by a mini croissant that was a delightful surprising touch. The beef tenderloin was done perfectly to the requested med rare. Ordering two sides for one person's steak was overkill as the quantities are large here. If you order a steak, one side per person is already more than enough. The server was happy to let us taste test the two cab sav's sold by the glass as we like to do that before ordering a bottle. Neither were to our liking so we had to gamble on picking something unknown from the wine list, which is extensive. The server assisted by recommending a single bottle that was less than our budget. I appreciated that, as most often the assistance for wine selection offers up too many choices at more expensive price points. We shared the flourless chocolate cake and it was outstanding.

The food at Terra Preta is delicious. All three in our party enjoyed it. The varied menu has things you would not find at an ordinary chain restaurant. There are a number of vegetarian and vegan options. The dessert was a good sized portion, not tiny as in some places. The service is friendly and attentive. Before you go note that the restaurant has moved from its original location. This caused us some confusion, since we went back to where it used to be, and didn't know where to go, till someone directed us to the new location, just a couple of blocks away. We did find it to be cold in the restaurant. We told the waiter, and he turned off the overhead fan, but it was still chilly. It is rather expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.
