Amazing experience.

Certainly one of the better restaurants I've ever been to. Really hit on all notes with great ambiance, excellent service and wonderful food. The restaurant is small with only a handful of tables, but allowed for a more personalized, intimate experience. The meal is served in courses and you are... read more

Place was packed! Sat in bar area, bartender had to come from around bar to take our order. Meanwhile the owner kept coming to the table next door interrupting our dinner. Not enough food, plates were very small! Apparently only if you are VIP will you get attention. So if your an average Joe Smo you will not get the... More

Great service. Each course was a home run. Menu explained well and wine selection superb. Hard to pick favorite! Definitely would go back for special dining occasions.

Things did not get off to a good start. The rain and dark signage made it hard to find the restaurant despite Google Maps. And when we arrived 10 minutes late, the hostess had to check to see if we could still order dinner. But after experiencing the 6 course menu ( you can order a 3, 5, and 7... More

A lovely dining experience. The service was polished and the lobster ravioli was outstanding as was the Japanese custard. Great tastes. A memorable night.

Fantastic, knowledgeable, attentive service. Food was different from other dining experiences in the area which was a nice. A splurge for our budget, but glad we experienced this great little restaurant. Definitely a place to go to take some small food risks as you won't be disappointed when trying something a little different than the typical safe steak or fish... More

This was my second time here but I hadn't been back with the new menu format where you can choose anything you want. I was very pleasantly surprised. We all enjoyed all of our dishes - some were better than others. We only did 4 savory courses and ate way too much bread or we would have made it to... More

I have eaten here on 3 occasions. It is a beautiful interior with brick lined walls. The food is fabulous & the wine list is extensive. I always try to get a reservation here, but you need to book ahead because it fills up fast and is hard to get into.

First time in Terra - although it is around for many years. And we do know Ame in SFO - same owners. You choose... More
