Food and service was good but food was overpriced compared to similar restaurants even downtown Toronto. Overall it was a good experience but I wouldn't go back.

We were there for this past new years eve dinner celebration and we absolutely loved it.

We had a 9:30 reservation and enjoyed the dinner in their very relaxed dining room. Felt like I was in someone's home. Since it was new years eve, they brought in a DJ who started to play around 11pm and the restaurant provided new years eve hats, horns and tiaras which made it real fun.

The food was outstanding in taste, portion and presentation. Best desserts I've seen in a long while. I had the lamb chops and my wife had the rib eye steak. Both were fantastic.

This was our first time there but certainly won't be the last. From the moment we arrived and were greeted to the moment we left everyone from the owner and all staff were extremely friendly and very professional. Dinner was relaxed, not rushed and food came out in a timely fashion. Great selection of wine's available.

I have already recommended the restaurant to several people.

The service was quite slow. In our experience we sat at 1840 and find leave until 2055 (for an appetizer and a main course). Food preparation was very inefficient to say the least. The waiter was excellent, however, short staffing prevented him to attend to our preferences. Price was way over. $210 (approx) for 2 ppl (1 appetizer shared, 2 main course).

As out-of-towners, we hope others have a better experience.

Always a warm welcome. The valet parking attendant was especially gracious and professional. Takes any anxiety one may have about parking! The food and service is always great. The prices are getting to the top end of the scale, but for those of us who eat here more often that isn't a surprise. Some more wine choices under a hundred dollars would be appreciated. No matter how much money a person may have, value is always appreciated.

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.

It was my birthday.
The servers made mistake after mistake.
My daughter can't eat potatoes and asked for extra vegetables with the sauce on the side.
They came with the sauce on the chicken and potatoes.
We waited 15 minutes for a new dish. By this time everyone finished and we had to wait till she finished
I also asked for more bread and I waited 10 minutes.
The worst part was that my son in law and I sent a message to the owners about our negative experiences and they couldn't even respond
The bill for the 6 of us was over $400.00.
What a waste.
I will never go back there and neither will our friends.
Totally overrated

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.
