    Highly recommend for a special occasion. Service was excellent and ambience was wonderful. Hubby and I shared the following: ceasar salad, rib steak, gnocchi and rapini sides and everything was delicious. Get the baked cookie for dessert!

    From the moment we were seated to when we left the service was professional and courteous. The waiter and the rest of the staff couldn’t be more knowledgeable and kind. Always smiling and wanted to make our experience the best. The food was excellent. Terra is one of our favourite restaurants.

    Birthday dinner with my daughter. Service was great, oyster appetizer was just right and the gnocchi were so good. Just what was needed. Dessert, the cookie, perfect combination of just baked cookie topped with creamy vanilla ice cream. Staff was great, just enough attention to look after us without being obtrusive. Well done!

    It was family celebration. Overall the servers were courteous and polite. We ordered two appetizers and I had to remind them of one as they didn’t come at the same time. I didn’t find the restaurant overly busy but the food took a long time - good thing they brought refills of bread but didn’t provide more butter. We were happy with the meal overall because the food was fantastic but with this calibre of restaurant, these minor oversights were the reason why I didn’t give 5 stars.

    Fantastic food and service. We ordered two appetizers (beef carpaccio, Caesar salad) and four mains (branzino, arctic char, zuppa di pesce, filet 8oz), along with the gnocchi (delicious!) and risotto, and we were not disappointed!! Desserts (sticky toffee pudding and cheesecake) were also excellent. Thank you for a wonderful meal!

    Great experience. Food and service was amazing. We started with the foie Gras and octopus. Appetizer portions were terribly small. For our mains we had the Australian rack of lamb and a 14oz ribeye. Perfectly cooked. For the rack, we loved that it wasn't just a mountain of mashed potatoes like with other restaurants. The blend of various sautéed vegetables complimented the dish very nicely. The ribeye was perfectly cooked as well. Not over seasoned. The gnocchi I ordered for its side is to die for. It was amazing. I was disappointed with the wine. It was shown on the menu to be a year 2016 bottle. I very soon realized it was a 2018 and called the server right away. I was told it was definitely a mistake on the menu but would do something in place for the troubles. I thought it was a kind gesture and appreciated it. I don't appreciate when promises aren't fulfilled because nothing was done by the time we left. Other than that, amazing service. Our server was great!

    The food and service were fabulous. However it was very busy because of Valentine's Day so there was a lot of time in between courses. Some people were complaining about how long it took to get their main courses.

    Went to eat on valentines day hoping for a quiet romantic dinner. We were seated next to a table where they were very noisy table. Even the waiter for that table was very loud. Also, waiters do not wear masks and are too often speaking too close. Sorry it was not what I expected.

    My last visit here was in 2019 and I enjoyed the food and ambience. At that time I thought it was overpriced but value was acceptable. My most recent visit however was really disappointing. Apart from still being overpriced the service was below par and the food was equally so. I was really hoping for a memorable experience, but it fell far short of that.

    Food was excellent, service is good but sometimes it was a bit over the top. So many different people showing up. Waiter, bread guy, plate person, then a different person for crumbs. It was constant lol oh well. Would be better to not go so over the top. Will defiantly return.

    I have been to Terra many times. The service is always excellent. I like the environment. However, I find the food usually quite salty. I had the grilled seafood special last night. It would have been much better if it were only lightly salted.

    Service was excellent. Friendly - made us feel welcome - seems like the staff knew many of the customers - complimentary bread and butter to start - oysters were nice - the lobster bisque had an excellent presentation - a crispy ball in the cebtre and soup poured tableside. It wasnt to my liking tho as it was “fishy”. The ribeye was flavourful but not an $85 steak. The gnicchi can come full size or as a side ( the side is shown ) it was good. They served a complimentary palate cleanser which you dont see that often in restaurants anymore even fine dining ines which was a nice touch. - they also serves a complimentary after dinner dish tge likes of which i had never seen - cheese cracjers nuts dried fruit. The after dinner specialty coffee also had a nice tableside presentation.
