Which I rarely am. This a great for a quiet formal dinner. We opted for 5 courses this time and it took a bit too long but the food was impeccable and vastly preferable to other standbys like Gary Danko. Great desserts.

We love dinners in the bar -- less formal, plenty of choices and every bit as mouth watering as the more expensive restaurant. I had the rock shrimp starter and I don't believe I've ever had lighter, delicate, more delicious tempura. The lamb meatballs were beautifully prepared. My wife started with the tempura mushrooms and I stole way too many... More

Ate in the bar/cafe instead of formal restaurant. Sole was delicious and so fresh. Salad was simple but a perfect complement. Rich chocolate desert. Nice wine selection. Reasonable prices.

This is a fabulous place - the menu has 16 different items plus 5 desserts. You choose any 4 for $85, any 5 for $104 and any 6 for a different price (we found ourselves stuffed after 5 so I didn't write down the price for 6). The four of us almost tried all of the items and we were... More

We made a Saturday night reservation for 5 with some friends visiting from out of town. We live in St. Helena. They wanted to got to Terra but we could only get in Bar Terra @ 6:30. I made the reservation and was told that I had to give a 48 hr. cancellation deposit, which I did. In my case... More

Gourmet dinning at it's best. intimate and cozy / very romantic. My wife and I make it a point to fine dine at Terra every time we visit Napa. A choice of 4 -8 servings prepared perfectly. Great wine list featuring wines from throughout the valley. Don't miss it !!!!!!!!!

An outstanding experience. A beautiful and historic building (due to its historic nature no signs can be put up so you have to look carefully to know that it is the restaurant). Very inventive, tasty and beautiful food. The service was also fantastic. One of the best meals we have ever had and the different and flexible choices for the... More

Terra is a gem. It is certainly one of the best restaurants in Napa. The prix fixed dinners are a surprise to the senses and delighted each of our guests. Since we each chose our four plates each, we had very different meals, each as exciting as the next. The black cod is absolutely delicious, but frankly everything we ate... More

had a great three course meal. Service was good, prompt and friendly. Recommend the duck confit should it be on the menu. Nice atmosphere and as you'd expect a good wine selection.

Just gets better and better. Food is exquisite..... interesting, delicious, beautifully presented. There are two sides of this restaurant - equally good. The prix fixe menu on one and bar terra on the other - which has all the foods a la carte, Service also outstanding. Excellent wine list.
