The quality of food is not bad but it is pretty expensive compared to other italian restaurants such as mistura so I do not recommend this restaurant for anniversary events or a party.

Had a party of 9 plus a toddler to celebrate birthdays among the group. Service was attentive and food was excellent, but we couldn’t stay long enough to have dessert. The restaurant is more suited for diners who have a longer period of time to dine (e.g. 3 hours or so). However, the staff were accommodating and friendly. I think we should have ordered desserts as soon as the staff started clearing our plates.

Will visit another time.

Lovely restaurant- food was delicious and portions generous. Service (Michael) was on point, attentive but not overbearing- perfect balance. Recommend highly - not inexpensive but in my view worth the cost.

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.

2nd time here. First time was excellent. Food is great. We were not as happy this time with the service. The waitress forgot our water and had to ask another server. Also forgot our cutlery, and had to take it from another table. Also, our dishes sat for a very long time on our table, but the table beside us was getting a lot of attention. We were there before them, yet they got their water way before us, and their dishes removed way before us. Were not asked if we wanted another drink, even though our glasses were empty for awhile. The short rib was excellent, and the duck spring rolls were good as well. Food presentation was great.

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.
