'Terra is doing too many things too well to be ignored...the setting is glorious, the presentation dramatic, the menu luxurious, the wine list enormous and the service everything it should be..', Where to Eat in Canada.
Frommer's International Guide to Toronto stated 'Sleek and sophisticated, this restaurant feels as if it was air-lifted out of the downtown core...'
We are huge fans of the restaurant and we were excited about getting a five star evening however much to our disappointment the restaurant was not its superior self. The evening was just like any other restaurant the things that set Tara part like wiping off your table and the survey between meals and the cheese and crackers after the meal or something that we always look forward to. I’m not sure if they were shortstaffed but we were disappointed
First time there and was extremely impressed. This is why I don’t really decide on going from other people’s reviews because if I did I would have missed out on delicious food with excellent service... Will definitely be back!! Highly recommend. Xoxo
Food and service outstanding! A bit pricey but once you eat the glorious food, all is well. Thank you.
Server never did bring bread to the table....and we suspected we were ignored, since there was a plate for it. One would think when they realized, they would have brought it. We seem to have been the only table that did not. My meal requests got the “we don’t do substitutes” rhetoric. I asked for salad instead of potatoes, and that meant paying 16 dollars for a full salad, when all I wanted was a small salad in place of carbs.
Too bad. I will say the Arctic Char was great. One of my friends wanted to go back for the seafood pasta dish, and what she got this time was a poor comparison to our earlier visit. No tomatoes, no real flavour...another too bad.
We go to Terra a few times a month. It’s right by our house and food has always been amazing!!! This last time though they dropped the ball! We got our food sooooooo late AND COLD!!! The portions were also smaller than usual which was weird...
I love the food so much there and I’ll go back again but if I get the same service I’ll stop. That will be very unfortunate...
This is our second visit at this location, and once again, it did not disappoint. The mussels were excellent, and our main courses of duck and grilled sea bream were exceptional. The food is very well presented, and the service is great!
My only criticism, is that they need to update the decor, cocktail menu, and dessert menu. Needs to be more upbeat. Having said that, We will most defiantly be back.
Excellent experience from start to finish. The services was top-notch with a large resource of available servers always tending to each table’s needs. Staff were friendly and engaging. The food quality was high and everything was tasty, well presented and expertly cooked. Pasta was fresh and al dente. Seafood was flavourful and not over cooked. Calamari was smooth in texture with no rubbery component at all. Serving sizes were reasonable and satisfying. Salads were exceptional (Caesar Salad and Rainbow Bowl). This was a great find and we will definitely be back. The menu offered many options for seafood, pasta, red meat, chicken and exotic dishes of the day. We were also very pleased with how child friendly the staff and food offerings were.
The waitress service is quite worst today comparing to all my previous visits . Food wasn’t great as before . I don’t think I will go there again.
Great food as always as well as presentation. Staff are so friendly, polite, and aware of all tables.
Food was exceptional, service beyond outstanding, prices very expensive.
Dinner was excellent. Great food. AMAZING service. This is true 5 star dining. Will be coming back 100 percent. Thanks for the great evening!
Gorgeous decor, super service and outstanding food. Must try especially for a special occasion.
A perfect combination of high quality food and wonderful service.
The food was great at Terra, but portion sizes are small for the amount of money. Service was good, and server was very pleasant, but the bar seemed a bit confused. My drink was only made correctly on the 3rd try. For a fine dining restaurant, it was just fine, nothing to write home about.
Interesting new menu choices and Nino was so attentive and great service all around, thank you!
By far one of my favourite restaurants!
The service was amazing...the ambience was out of this world. We truly enjoyed it.
Service is excellent as usual. But got asked 'how was the food' 3 times within 15 minutes by 3 different people.
We have been there a few times. tis time it was my wife's birthday. As usual great food and the service was amazing. They made me shine.
Although the food was very good the prices were very high. There are many restaurants with very good food for half the price. We got a reasonably priced red wine, a couple of martinis, I had crab legs ( but they cut up in small pieces in a bowl with no spoon to hold them so I had to use my fingers) and a square piece of swordfish. The bill with tip was almost $600 for two people. The decor was nice but nothing spectacular.
It was a fairly pricey restaurant but the food was excellent. I loved my steak.
Wonderful Mother’s Day brunch. Service was great and so was the food. Quite pricey so would come back for a special occasion or celebration meal.
great restaurant, right off of 407 so no traffic ... its great
Amazing food and great service.
Great Place. Food and service was amazing. Definitely highly recommend
Disappointed that Terra has discontinued the Tapas menu
Service was a little rushed and pushy. Taking away plates before finished? Not good
Amazing food!! Everything was delicious and the service was very friendly and accommodating.
This was a return visit and we were not disappointed. The Arctic Char was simply delicious and the service was quietly efficient. My client was from SanDiego and wanted to come here again. I have been here for dinner a number of times and now twice for lunch. Definitely recommended.
Excellent food and service. The staff definitely went above and beyond. The musicians were also a nice touch with the perfect selection music. It was my first time dining at Terra but hopefully it won’t be my last.
The live music was wonderful, food was delicious, service outstanding.
The service was really nice, and all the food was great. The only thing I felt a bit discomfort is our table was set so close to another one, might because both of us came as two.. but I booked here for my birthday , and we can clearly hear whatever they were talking. Anyways, I still recommend this place, but hope they have better arrangements next time!
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.
Food very tasty, well seasoned and generous portions. Staff very professional and well trained.
Another wonderful dinner and experience at Terra’s. All the staff made us feel special and paid attention to every detail. We appreciated Nino’s entertaining style tonight as well.
Always friendly and welcoming staff. Waiter even remembers our main dishes. We’ve celebrated a lot of events here. Food ya always amazing.
We went for the Raspberry point oysters and they were fantastic in addition to everything else. The service was outstanding.
