Terra Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.

This was not my first visit to Terra. I've been coming here since it opened. The food has remained consistently top notch. Tonight was no exception.
My friend and I each ordered the beef tenderloin which was outstanding.
I ordered the oysters as an appetizer. I am glad that Terra continues to offer a variety of oysters from the East and West coast.
The ambiance at Terra has always been great.
Had an excellent dinner.

I have been eating at Terra for over 15 years. It wasn't very good the last few years but it was surprisingly very very good this time. The special - duck chop was very very good and my Risotto with quail was excellent (one of the best risotto I had for years).
For special occasions, there is no need ...
For special occasions, there is no need to go all the way downtown.
Terra offers impeccable service and outstanding food and an extensive wine list in a comfortable setting.
It can bit a bit expensive given some of the wine sections, but as an overall experience quite a notable experience for that special occasion.

I've been wanting to go to Terra forever and finally made it there with a friend for lunch on August 1 Holiday Monday and it was everything I dreamed it to be and more. Our servers (couldn't count them all LOL) were SUPER FANTASTIC and made us feel like VIP and attended to our EVERY wish!! I had the Ceasar Salad (with a little twist) and the Seafood Spegettini (DID I SAY TO DIE FOR YUMMMMMMY and oh so plentiful!!) Also enjoyed a Mohito and it was the best I've ever had so I'll be dropping in from time to time to enjoy one at the bar! Thank you Terra for a wonderful dining experience and YOUR STAFF are WONDERFUL!!

The restaurant is located in a typical GTA-style strip mall, which made us slightly suspicious as the restaurant advertises "fine dining". However, once we were inside, we forgot all about the exterior. The restaurant is tastefully decorated. The ahi tuna appetizer was delicious but the seaweed salad was store bought. I was very disappointed when I saw it. The dry-aged ribeye steak was juicy and tender. Not bad restaurant, but not great because I know better places for the same price. Once is enough for me.

This restaurant has the history to be considered a standard, exemplifying high end (but also high price) food and wine combined with pleasant ambiance and extremely professional service. I would unhesitatingly recommend it for special occasions or as a "regular" for those with deep pockets. I have never known the food to disappoint.

The food was very good and so was the service. Our waiter was very attentive. It's more af a high end romantic/business groups type of restaurant. I would recommend and go back. Good wine selection, although they were out of my dessert wine. Worth the detour!

I thought the service was very good and the restaurant was nice looking. I thought the food was very average at best and expensive for the taste. We had three different steaks for a party of four. Although they were tasty, they were very fatty and lost about 20% of the steak to fat. I had a tomato salad that was not very good. For this price (and less money) I'd rather go to the Octagon just three minutes away.

We have been to Terra several times and have enjoyed their generous appetizers (the crispy prawn tacos are amazing), fresh fish, perfectly cooked steaks, unique elegant atmosphere and friendly staff. We have always been made to feel welcome and have enjoyed ourselves immensely.

I absolutely loved this restaurant. The food was amazing and worth the money that was spent. The service was impeccable and they were on top of everything - not only was our waiter assisting us, but we had multiple wait staff attending to us the entire evening. The risotto of the day (butternut squash) was fabulous and so were the rest of the dishes we had - roasted chicken, pan seared gnocchi, seafood spaghettini and the pasta of the day. Everything had such amazing flavour and was extremely rich. It was my mother's birthday and they even brought out some delicious cookies on a plate that said "Happy Birthday" along with a candle. It was very sweet of them and was a great touch to the evening. We also loved how something small (a digestive) was brought out after each course. Well done and we will definitely be back!

I went to Terra's to celebrate my graduation with my family and had an amazing experience. I ordered a glass of champagne, which was delicious. I ate the mozarella cheese and tomato appetizer. The cheese was great and the tomatoes were delicious, you could really tell the quality of the ingredients. I had steak frites for my main dish and it was the best steak I've ever eaten in my life. It was on $32 on the lunch menu, which I think is a great value. The french fries are served with aioli garlic and ketchup as well which was nice. The steak was topped with some peppers. For dessert I ate the creme brulee and I was not disappointed. It was glazed perfectly on top with the perfect consistency inside. It also came with some fresh berries, which was nice. Overall I'd definitely recommend going to Terra's, the food is fantastic. It is a bit pricey, which is why I'd probably reserve it for special occasions.
The best way I can summarize my visit to ...
The best way I can summarize my visit to Terra is that it impresses with its decor and service rather than its food. The food wasn't bad by any means but it wasn't worthy of the price. It might not be fair to compare Terra to restaurants in Toronto but I've had much nicer meals for (slightly) less money in Yorkville (e.g. Sassafraz) in the past.
If you're looking to have a really nice meal I'd recommend driving to Toronto. If you want to have a special occasion in the area and appearance is more important than the food then check out Terra.

I was very impressed with everything at this restaurant. The food was outstanding (lunch). The service was impeccable. The decor was upscale. And... the wines by the glass were worthy. I would definitely return to this restaurant, business or pleasure.

Unfortunately we didn't get served, so it's hard to write an accurate review. We were seated right away and given water and bread, which was great, but then after that no one came back. After about 30 minutes we gave up and left. The hostess was very kind as we were leaving and offered to get us a new server and do something for the tablee, but it was getting late by that point so we didn't stay. My husband emailed the restaurant, but we haven't heard back yet.

We had had such a positive experience at Terra years ago that we wanted to celebrate a special birthday there. This time, while the renovated decor was lovely, the music choices were completely out of step as was the rest of the experience. Service was lacklustre and inattentive to the point of needing to ask for bread, oil and balsamic, which finally arrived with the meal. Mennonite chicken and lobster risotto were enjoyable but pretentiously priced. (Someone needs to rewrite the unappetizing menu which reads more like a biology test.) Disappointing overall.

5 star food, 5 star service, ample parking, VERY clean everywhere, great selection of food options and knowledgeable waiters.
Huge and delicious martinis (the way that they should be).
Innovative food all served at the proper temperature.
Slow and slower
If you aren't in a hurry or if you would wait 30 minutes before your drinks come to your table this is the spot for you! Okay, I'll give them a break. It was a Saturday night 6:45pm and I think they don't have enough staff. Also I think some need a lot more training before starting on the floor. The kid who served my coffee from a French Press pumped it a few times and so you know, coffee grounds in the cup! Really??? It is a French Press not a French Pump. I didn't have the time and also could be bothered because of our guests.
We had waited so long for our salads, we almost forgot we had placed our order.
I'm sorry for this review, it could have just been a bad night???? I don't think so, I felt the people that are going there, don't seem to be concerned. What a shame, was I only nice place in the area for fine dinning.
