About Terra Restaurant
Terra Restaurant has been a leading restaurant in the Napa Valley since 1988. Set in a historic field stone building, Terra gives you the feeling of the Napa Valley, or some have said the French country side. We are proud to be part of such an important area not just for food but also for wine (Our family owns Quixote Winery). We are, Hiro and Lissa the chef/owners of Terra and love to work closely with the local growers for our vegetables and the farms that raise the meats we serve. Incredible dairies that make the cheese and the fishermen that bring in the catch we serve. The connection to the land and the people is why we love what we do. Terra serves a prix fix menu of 4, 5 or 6 courses. Terra has received a Michelin Star since the first award in 2007 and each year since then. Hiro Sone received the James Beard Award for Best Chef California in 2003 and Terra received James Beard Award for Outstanding Service-2008. The San Francisco Chronicle gave Terra & Bar Terra 3 1/2 stars.

Lovely dinner celebrating my husband's birthday with our teenagers! Amazing food, wonderful service. A memorable dining experience... All courses were delicious and the quiet atmosphere allowed us to have nice conversation!

Honest and delicious food. Portions are large, which you don't expect for a restaurant of this caliber. Chef was very nice and omitted an ingredient we did not like. The waitstaff is diverse and completely unpretentious. They do a great job making you feel welcomed. We loved this place and would go back again.
The only thing I would suggest is better signage. It's not clear where the entrance is, and going at night, all you see is what looks like a business directory, but still no direction where to go.

The food selection here is only exceeded by the food taste! what choices and everything we had was really really good. Where else can you get Octopus, Abalone, Black Cod, Calamari, and still not be 1/2 way thru the fish appetizers? And they were all outstanding. The wines by the glass were perfect for the menu items. If you are ever in the NAPA area, anywhere in the area, Try Terra, you will not be disappointed!

Terra has been owned and operated by the same fabulous chef for 25 years or so. My wife and I first went to Terra on our honeymoon in 1995 and recently returned. It remains one of the finest places I have ever dined. Do yourself a favor, splurge a bit and take someone you love to Terra.

Went here for our anniversary and it was amazing. We were a little nervous since the menu had items we'd never had before, but this was the perfect way to try new delicacies. The service was fantastic, the atmosphere was quite and romantic and our meal was one we'll remember forever. Highly recommended

This was truly a restaurant worthy of the Michelin stars it has received since 2007. From the moment we sat down, the experience was one we will remember. The service was great as was the food. From the lobster tortellini to the Shoyu braised short beef ribs, everything was marvelous. The chocolate carmel tart, with espresso ice cream and sea salt was my favorite dessert, but we did not go wrong with anything we tasted. We were celebrating our 39th anniversary and Terra was a real find. The environment was tastefully and beautifully done. We were able to talk yet it was not eerily quiet. We would definitely go back there again.

We spent a few days in the wine country before my wife's upcoming lung cancer surgery to relax and have some romance. A special Sunday night dinner at Terra's was perfect. We had not been to back since the bar area was incorporated. We found the dining room to be quiet and comfortable. Our waitstaff were excellent; attentive and very knowledgable about the food served that night. I chose 4 savory courses while my wife chose 3 savory dishes and a dessert for us to share. We of course shared bites so it was truly an epicurean delight; sashimi, heirloom tomato salad, chanterelle mushroom risotto, lobster tortelloni, broiled black cod in shiso broth, grilled octopus, Ezo abalone/scallop, panacotta with raspberry and peach. Terra never disappoints us!

The restaurant was underwhelming compared to other Michelin 1Star restaurants I've been to... a good restaurant but didn't seem to deserve a Michelin star. Vegetarian pasta was excellent, however. $85 for a four course veg dinner wasn't great value. My husband had meat options which were good.

This just moved to the TOP of our list - loved everything about this restaurant and we will definitely return. Each course was filled with delicate layers of flavor. We enjoyed the construct-your-own-experience approach. A don't-miss for food lovers.

A very pleasant surprise. Interesting and delicious menu offering appetizer portions with the choice of 4, 5 or 6 selections with fixed prices. Japanese and French influence throughout the tastings. A very talented chef. Wait staff very cordial and helpful. We will return on our next Napa visit.

Wonderful experience. Service was impeccable. Our party of 4 chose a wide variety of the dishes offered and there was not one that wasn't great- even the vegetarian in the group was pleased. We will definitely be returning to Terra when we come back to Napa. Our favorite restaurant of the trip.

We almost did not to go because it was a hot in Napa n did not want to drive up there. So glad we decided to go after all. Had a terrific time n the food was wonderful. It seemed expensive, but not when you factored into the quality ingredients. It was worth it. Outstanding n memorable dishes for me were the savory custard, pasta, n abalone.

Our 4th time visiting & not our last. Chef Hiro & Lissa are the perfect hosts with a superb staff both in the front & back. A great fusion of classic French & Japanese Cuisine. We were six on a Saturday, while most often we are just two & nothing was left out this time. Thank you.

This was a return visit to Terra. The restaurant did not disappoint; the food and service are outstanding. If you like new concepts in food and like lots of small plates, this is a dining experience you will not forget.

Terra fast became one of my favorite restaurant; beside the fun, relaxed and professional services, foods are exceptional good.
Amber Jack Crudo with Tobiko and Soy/Yuzu vinaigrettes are refreshing and buttery. ( I could have 4 order of this and be satisfied).
Ezo Abalone and Scallop with a robust garlicky butter sauce was perfectly balanced and cooked.
Duck Breast was cooked perfectly medium rare with Corn and Charred Pardon Pepper.
I have to mentioned the attentive service from the staffs, we were there celebrated our daughter's birthday without mentioned this to the restaurant when we make the booking, somehow they overheard our toast and they bring out our desserts with Happy Birthday writing and a lighted candle, very lovely gesture, it ended our dinner experience in the high note.

The meal is a sit down 4, 5, or 6 course fixed price. Plenty of selection among the courses and everything was fantastic. Plan to spend the appropriate time to have a 5 course meal and you'll love it. Quiet and romantic atmosphere.
