My cousin and her husband visiting us across the miles from Asia. They really enjoyed the lovely sundaylicious menu with delicious Branzino and tasty seafood pasta! We all have a fantastic time!

The food was fantastic, service was deplorable. Prices are outlandish, average entree is $60.00? It is Thornhill not downtown Toronto financial district. To welcome you, they have valet parking for $12.00 again it is Thornhill where there is an abundance of parking not downtown Toronto where there is a shortage. Did not appreciate breathing in everyone's second hand smoke entering and leaving as they allow patrons to smoke under the front door canopy. All in all, a very expensive restaurant who need lessons on how to treat patrons and should learn where they are situated, NOT DOWNTOWN TORONTO.

Before I ordered my food I told our waitress that I cannot eat any form of bell pepper. She acknowledged this and I ordered a crab cake and a short rib dish which she did not caution as having any peppers in those dishes. In my first bite of the crab cake it was obvious that the red sauce on top contained red peppers. Within a minute I got my adverse reaction to this which carried on through the dinner. I called her to complain so that I could order a different starter. I ordered the lobster bisque. She came back from the kitchen a few minutes later and advised me that this soup also contains red pepper (highly unusual). At this point it was obvious that she did not know the ingredients of the items on the menu. She also advised me that she just learned that the short rib entree I ordered also contains peppers. At this point it is probably 15 minutes since I placed my first order and my companion has now finished his starter. I ordered a shirmp taco to start (often contains peppers) and the fish special. The shrimp taco was delivered without any bell peppers and was quite good, but bland. The fish special was excellent. When we got the bill it included everything including the crab cake and not a single thing provided for free as a gesture. Very disappointing experience.

Poor food, poor service, and poor solution. The portion of the food is far smaller than they should be, the server's attitude, sucks. They almost get everything wrong, I will definitely never come back and tell all my friend not to come

Excellent food. Exceptional service. Took my girlfriend on Valentines Day. Place was swarmed, yet all staff were extremely friendly, happy, and in a great mood!
It was pricey but was well worth it for the experience.

The wait time was ridiculous even though we had a reservation but yet we had to wait 45 mins. The food was decent, but the service was awful for the price you pay! Oh and while we were waiting at the bar to be seated, we noticed that they use the same ice they put on top of the bottles for customer’s drink, with their hands! Imagine how dirty they are! So we had to order drinks that doesn’t come with ice! Because it was pretty risky. To be honest for these type of fine restaurants, they should offer complimentary valet and coat check instead of charging the customers!

Everything was wonderful. The food was spectacular except for the crab cakes, there was shell in them and they were too mushy. The only issue we had was the price. Dinner for two with a couple drinks came out to 390$ yikes!

Nice quality food in up town location. Ceasar Salad with many flavours, Striplion steak nicely grilled with perfect seasoning, and the wild mushroom risotto was great. Server was very polite and acted professionally.

Hard to find a parking spot, and very packed at the reception area. Seems the restaurant over-booked. We arrived 25 mins before our reservation, so we got seated with no problem.

Out with friends for a nice evening. Terra never disappoints when it comes to food. I asked for a booth or out of the way table and we were put in one of the back dining rooms. Next time I will request the front dining room as it’s so nice. Was a little noisy in the dining room were were in. There were six of us so a booth or a round table would have been better for conversation. We will recommend the Terra and we’ll be back.

I assume it was a busy Thursday night but I did not appreciate how long the food takes. We waited half an hour for our oyster to come and in total an hour for the main course to come. My food wasn’t even hot when it arrives, overall I’m very disappointed by my first visit.

Atmosphere and service were good but food was only okay given the price that you’re paying. We enjoyed oysters and the buffalo mozzarella salad. I sent back my lobster bisque since it was too salty and tasted old. There was also no chunks of lobster in the soup, tasted more like seafood stock then anything. We both got the halibut. Fish was good but saffron risotto lacked in flavour and texture. We we’re glad to have ordered a half order of the gnocchi as that was the best dish we had. Overall I would try other places before going back here.

Food was good , but first time in 12 years , they made huge mistake which not acceptable in good restaurant, I ordered Maccalan 18 whiskey, when I tested, it was something awful not what I order , when I called service guy and asked what is inside of glass ? He left and some times later come and told , sorry we haven’t waft you ordered and we feel glass with lower age product , this is way how people downgrade restaurant and owners need to know this
