Terra Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Terra always meet expectations as a casual fine dining. All 6 different mains we had tonight were well prepared. My recommendation is the Sea Food Mix which uses tomato soup as the base. It excels all similar dishes with the way they cook. I would like to see more appetizers with lighter choice.

Forgot to update my reservation from 4 to 5. It was no problem although we were a little squished -- tho the place was very busy. We split 2 apps, beat salad and caprese salad. Both excellent. Others enjoyed risotto, snapper, pasta with lamb ragu. Everybody cleaned their plates. Only so so dish was the apple dessert. The two guests who shared it were not impressed. A little pricey but great food and service. Will be back.

New Year's Eve dinner, so service was a little slow but expected. The servers were very polite & friendly. We had the chorizo and shrimp taco appetizers - the chorizo was excellent, the shrimp taco nothing special. For our mains we had the Irish salmon and the seafood spaghettini- both very good & plentiful. Overall it was a lovely dinner. My only complaint was that we had to purchase our water for the table - they did not offer tap - and the water was $10 a bottle.

This was not my first time with Terra. I remember the last time i visited, it was quieter. Service then was prompt but unobtrusive. This time, the ambiance wasnt the same, the tables seemed closer together so the noise level was higher. It felt cramped, food was still good nonetheless.

Phenomenal! Every single dish was flawless and every ingredient was handled with the best hands. Ordered the sashimi grade tuna, seafood spaghettini and a seared red snapper. Absolutely great place for a date or special occasion.

This was my 3rd time here in about 3 years. Each time has been terrific. Food is wonderful - must have the gnocchi! at least as an appetizer to share. Rack of lamb was perfectly prepared, the cookie skillet dessert another must. The staff are all friendly yet professional, attentive but not overbearing. Looking forward to going back sooner than later. A gem in Thornhill.

The service was lovely
My salad was enjoyable
I ordered the branzino and it had no flavour at all. Even though I didn't get the sauces on it I usually don't when I go elsewhere either Really no taste
Should have had the salmon

We dined at Terra Restaurant last night and had the Holiday Sundaylicious. We could tell they put a lot of thoughts into the menu. For example, I ordered the mushrooms risotto and it wasn't just a plain mushrooms risotto. It also had smoked chicken. Plus the portions were big. Usually my husband complains that fine dining is a ripoff because the portions are really small and he would feel hungry afterwards. No such complaints this time. Anyway, we had a wonderful time and we would come back for sure.

I enjoy this restaurant and have been there many times, we had to book for 8:45 pm as all earlier times after 7 pm were taken I confirmed our chosen the morning of ... on arriving we were told we could not have our table and we would have to wait at the bar for another one ...we waited 20 minutes had a glass of wine as suggested by the host .....finally we did get a table ...it would have been a nice gesture to comp that glass of wine at the bar !

I always like going to Terra, and it always feels special. My favourite dish is the pan fried gnocchi, but I have never been disappointed with any choice.
This is a fine dining restaurant but it does have a casual feel.

Terra offers a tremendous prix fixe menu on Sunday called Sundaylicious. I made a reservation for 2 at 5:30 pm I wanted to treat a friend to a fun experience.
When we asked about the Sundaylicious menu the waiter informed us that it was unavailable tonight.
Extremely disappointed my instincts were to leave, but we made the best of it and soldiered on.
The menu has sensational offers but to order appetizers, mains, dessert and coffee would cost considerably more than the Sunday menu.
As we were leaving, I heard another table being introduced to the Sundaylicious menu.
Extremely disappointed and wanting to leave the premises ASAP, we were never given an explanation as to why we were not offered the menu.
The hostess and manager tried to quell my dissatisfaction with a complimentary cocktail and free dessert on a future visit. Ha, they should have offered two Sundaylicious dinners at a future date. Never ever will return and will never recommend this restaurant to anyone.

I have been to Terra several times in the past and found the food excellent. On my last experience of found the salad to be excellent but the entrees were substandard, especially for the price. The salmon was bland and the veal was grizzly.

Terra is an all time favorite spot but of late quality is hit and miss. Had revved up the dining experience to first time friends, was disappointed we did so. Table was not nice, isolated and empty room, service was very slow, food was tasteless and not well cooked. The kitchen ally was loud and thus distracting. Sad to write this review. When they are "on" you would be hard pressed to find better but this time was poor across the board and for the expense very disappointing.

Excellent food . However, service is not the level I would expect. More than once they interrupted the conversations I was having with my guests. For this category of restaurant and the money being spent, that is not acceptable.

I don't like being clipped when I dine! Still water at $9.50 a bottle and a replacement wine when the one the I wanted wasn't available offered at $20. over the price of the one ordered. When an establishment is charging $15. and up for appetizers and $40. and up for mains they don't need to abuse the customers by overcharging for everything or do they? Kind of spoils the evening.

Terra's is my favourite restaurant. The food and service are consistently exceptional. I have yet to have an issue with an order. The taste and presentation of every dish I have tried has been fantastic. I love the ambiance. This is the place to go for an enjoyable and memorable meal.

We dined outside, the ambiance was great and the staff are very well educated regarding their wine list.
The appetizer platter we ordered was disappointing for both of us, but the prosecco and wine were fabulous!
I have had dinner here many times and have never been disappointed by the food until last week.
