Did not expect this high level of quality as far as menu and service are concerned, so far North of downtown!
Attentive staff, beautiful presentation, delicious execution. .
Delivery of food and drinks were a bit slow, but the place is very busy... so they get a Hall Pass on that.
The wonderful live music was also unexpected and definitely made it an outstanding evening.

I have been to this restaurant many times in the past. I have always loved the restaurant for its ambience and positive energy of the staff and employees. And of course the food!
But this time when we went , I felt that it was v. loud due to live jazz music . The jazz music is great but definitely not for a romantic dinner or any get together where you want to have an actual conversation .
Although our waiter was great ; we did feel the general staff had a lot of tension between them and not very friendly.

I would probably not go there, at least not on any jazz night.

Nice restaurant, with free valet parking. A little dated on the inside but nice overall. Dinner for 2 + a couple glasses of wine will be over $200 so Be prepared (you do get what you pay for though, it’s worth it IMO). My wife & I had the Ceasar salad to start. One of the best Ceasar’s I have had. Followed by the beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes & a potato gnocchi. Both were excellent! We didn’t have time for dessert. Staff were very friendly & the service was great. No complaints & we will come back.

The service was great, the staff was very courteous. The food was over priced but very delicious though the lobster tail was a little under cooked for our liking. We ordered the seafood platter for 2 and enjoyed it immensely. When we first got there the dinning room was fairly quite (about 6:30 on a Saturday evening) but by the end of our meal the noise level was much to loud for us to carry on a conversation. I would recommend this restaurant but expect a bit of noise and expensive night out. Would go there again for a very special occasion

The food was delicious. The hot oil was the best I have tasted in a very long time. The chef brought me a sample to take home which was SO kind of him. The restaurant has a lovely warm and intimate feel to it. I would return in a heartbeat.

Michael and the entire team at Terra made us feel so welcomed and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. I have found my new North of city dinning spot. Will also try sister properties. This is a must visit spot. The food is on point and service is excellent. The lice music on Saturday night was so intimate and classy. Great spot for grown ups and families alike.

Simply, old fashioned elegance and service. ALWAYS on spot with making you feel special...dinner is a special event. Every time I dine @ Terra, I always regret that I don't come more often. THE ONLY place north of Eglinton for delicious food, the most pristine service, and an elegant, sophisticated evening where you realize that these people TRULY know service and fine dining. Thank you, Terra.

Tables in the dining area are way too close to each other. The whole night I could clearly hear the next table’s conversation as if I was sitting at their table. It was very disturbing and ruined the evening for us to listen to all their conversations for the whole night.

Food was good and service was great. Just not the way the tables are set up.

Once they moved us from the corner space next to the bar, everything was great. The first spot was an out of the way private area that could accommodate up to 12 people but it was a dump. We moved to another table and everything from that point was great. Good service and good food.
Renovate or stop using that 1st spot it would be ok for a low end restaurant but in no way is representative of fine dining.

Been coming here for more than a decade. While the food is above average, it does not justify the exorbitant prices charged. I have experienced equally good food for half the price. A decade ago the dishes stood out, they don’t any longer. I can’t recommend at the price point.

My twins birthday. Service was great , food was delicious. I didn’t care for the trio of musicians. I found them too loud for the space. Nor did I care for the singers voice my personal opinion.

What an extraordinary dining experience. I had the Ostrich au jus and my wife had the Black Cod. They were 10/10's. Oddly enough so were the salads. Best service. We love going here and it is a 90 minute drive each way.

We have dined at Terra several times. This is a fine dining restaurant with prices to match. This time we tried their Sunday menu which offers a prix fixe selection from their regular menu but at lower prices. We were very pleased with our meals. Crab cake appetizers were delicious and they do an outstanding job with fish dishes. Desserts are outstanding. Service is excellent, professional but quite friendly. Tables are a tad close together but overall this is an admirable restaurant.

This was our first visit to Terra thanks to a gift from our 3 year old grandson. The ambiance was excellent and the food well presented. The staff was courteous and always ready to help with questions. The only comment I have is where we were seated. There were 2 tables of 2 separated by an ice bucket - not the problem. The issue was that we could hear every word of the conversation that the people were having next to us - not necessarily convenient as they could probably hear ours even though we kept our voices low. I did mention it to the manager on my way out the door just as an observation and something that should be looked into as sometimes the conversation is meant to be private and intimate and not shared with your neighbor. Other than that, we will definitely be coming back.

Excellent Carpaccio, maybe the best I've ever had. Seafood pasta was terrific with fresh made pasta. Possibly the best Creme Brulee I've had as well. While the clam linguine tasted great, it contained a bit too much sand / grit, and despite saying it contained chilli peppers, it only had one small sliver. I'll chalk it up as a rare mistake. Overall, I'd highly recommend this place and I will be back. Ask for the bread, it's quite nice. Excellent service.
