We often eat at Terra Bistro, and are never disappointed. Their offerings are so imaginative and fun, with great combinations of ingredients. We ate on the late side (after 8 p.m.) so our only observation was that as the crowd increased, our server was less available. We still had a wonderful meal, and will come back the next time we...

We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary here and it was a perfect and memorable evening. The service and food were outstanding. The menu is full of fresh, different and delicious options. We will be back!

We heard a lot of positive about Terra so this time in Vail we decided to try. We had a reservation so when we arrived there was no problem and got a nice table next to the window. But then the waiter started to act in a strange way , actually he disappeared and it seemed he has no intension... More

Every time we visit Vail, we make a point of dining at a restaurant in which we have not yet eaten. I found a discount on a restaurant website for Terra Bistro, so we decided to give it a try. Everyone in our party agreed that the food was incredible. My sister commented that the pasta dish she ordered was... More

Atmosphere and service were very good. The wait staff was prompt and helpful with our selections. They recommended the octopus for appetizer - outstanding. I had a wonderful ribeye and my wife had the trout. We were both pleased. Cocktails were well prepared. Unfortunately, no room for dessert.

This was our second trip. The menu is OK, but a little limited. The wine list is really good. The food was average at best, both of our meals. The service was stretched a little thin, but she was very nice and polite. OK, but better options. The view is also of the parking ramp and bus stop with such... More

We spent six nights in Vail with a group up from Dallas for Bravo/Vail. Terra Bistro was the best meal of the trip- imaginative food, pretty setting and great service. Nice happy hour specials at the bar too.

First time at Terra Bistro tonight, and we have a new favorite in Vail. The decor is modern, bordering on sparse, but the food and the service were excellent. The focus is seasonal, local, and organic. The wife and I started with a perfectly prepared octopus appetizer and split the house special "vitality" salad. The Colorado trout entrée was perfect,...

Loved this restaurant. I'm vegan and it accommodated me with several great choices. The service was top notch & the food over the top delicious. The prices are expensive but worth it! I will make this a special occasion restaurant & go again!

I had one of the best meals ever at Terra Bistro!! It started off with an assortment of breads and papadum with a very tasty dahl spread....so tasty in fact that I asked the waiter for the recipe, not expecting to get it! But, to my surprise he brought me a print out that is available on their website! I... More
