Probably the best restaurant I’ve been to in my 3 years in Canada. Remarkable service, and the cuisine was just marvelous - tenderloin and branzino were amazing.
Really loved the attention the staff paid to the fact that we were there on a birthday occasion (and I only briefly mentioned it on the phone).
Will definitely be back. Thank you!

Very much enjoyed my experience at Terra during a pandemic. Evening was warm and lovely for November and outdoor fireplace helped. I had the Halibut and my friend enjoyed the sea food pasta dish along with a shared glass of wine, shared salad and shared Apple desert.

I was given a $150 gift card on June 2017 for my wedding. Unfortunately my husband passed away from throat cancer so shortly after our wedding he was not able to swallow easily or enjoy food. We enjoyed 16 very precious months together. He passed away Aug 10 2018 and I held onto the gift card for a special event. With COVID I was concerned that you might close. On Tues Nov 10 my good friend and I planned to eat at an outdoor café because of good weather and I decided to pull out this card. Turns out she was celebrating leaving her nursing job of many years and starting her art therapy business. As a nurse she had been very helpful during the care of my husband who was able to die at home. A perfect day to celebrate and you were the perfect ambiance.

Unfortunately because I work for non profit I don't expect I will be able to come again for your prices, but this was a once in a life time event that spontaneously came up and did not disappoint. Thank you! Ruth Brown

Service started quite slow- took our server over 50 mins to take our food order. Not sure what happened, but we definitely felt like we had been forgotten.

Once our food order was completed, service got much better. Quicker pace, and more attention.

Perhaps just an off night in regards to service. Have been here before and service always A+.

Food delicious and good portions as always.

We enjoyed our meal very much. Service was excellent. If I have any complaint, it's about the temperature in the room; it was rather chilly and a bit drafty where we were sitting.

It was our first time dining out after COVID 19. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the most delicious dinner as we always had at Terra. So grateful for this amazing spot for gourmet meals that are consistently of the highest quality and service that is friendly, non pretentious and courteous.
Great experience!!

I felt slightly rushed and our order was wrong, possibly because there were three different people serving us. Our order was corrected immediately which was nice. No mention of our anniversary until the end when some stale cookies and biscotti were served to us. Overall experience has gone down since the last time I have been there.

The place is beautiful & we enjoyed the outdoor environment. The only downfall was being irritated by the bees when dining outdoor, end up have to move to indoor. The server is very nice, patient & helpful. We have good time to there.

Well, this dinner was one of the worst dining experiences in a while. To be fair the food was awesome as always (as this place is one of our favourite places in GTA). However, when we go out and pay for a meal it is not merely about the food. I make homemade dinners everyday and they are quite adequate with no aggravation The price of the meal when fine dining includes the meal and overall experience (which is reflected in the price). Unfortunately, today the experience was quite unpleasant (apart from the meal itself of course). We had to ask multiple times to clear the table from multiple empty glasses and plates. The question from the staff like « Was your table cleared? » while I had 2 empty glasses, 2 sets of utensils (per person) and empty plates on the table seems inappropriate. We had to pour our own water from the bottles on the other side of the table, move shared oyster plate closer as it was placed out of reach, not to mention to adjust our table cloth. Self-serve all the way!:) Waiting time was quite long as well, which is understandable as the restaurant was busy (not the main issue). My main course arrived with no side dish that was ordered when the order was placed and no one seemed to know what happened to it. I was told that all meals arrive in sequence. It’s a side dish for Christ sakes! When enquired about it’s whereabouts I was advised that it was dropped in the floor and a new one will be made for me. The issue is that I need my side side dish with my meal while it is still hot, not once I finish my my main course. It might sound like being picky, but I can go to few of $$ places and have service that reflects it, and not go to $$$$ place and get a very mediocre service. Unfortunately, service component was really unimpressive tonight. P.S. In the attached photo is what our table cloth looked like for an hour till I got up and fixed it myself. No further comment.

Live band was a nice touch. Little slow on the service but the quality of food was great. Hoped to have tried a few things on the menu but due to Covid it is a condensed version of the menu. Octopus was a little smaller than what I thought it would be but still very tasty!

First time out since the pandemic and it was everything and more than I’d hoped for and expected of Terra ! We had the special buratta salad with peaches and the grilled branzino fillets with succotash and both were amazing. Their special slaw was also delicious as were our drinks. Service was professional and attentive and social distancing and Covid protocol was maintained in a lovely outdoor garden setting. Will be back again regularly!

What a lovely experience at Terra.

Can't think of a better way to get back into restaurant dining after we've all been on this global dining hiatus. The patio at Terra was both elegant and comfortable. The wait staff was attentive and helpful.

I had the roasted beet salad which was tasty, prepared beautifully and perfectly portioned.

For the main course I ordered the Seafood Spaghettini. The lobster, scallop, shrimp... and that sauce!! Oh my. It was perfection!

I'm now thinking about when I can go back and have the seafood pasta dish again. I highly recommend it.

All in all it was an A+ dinner experience.
