Terra Bistro is an enigma to me. Four of us were out for a ski trip and made reservations for dinner based on Terra Bistros great reviews. I expected excellent. What we got was seating in a room that really had no presence or ambiance. Just a room with tables and chairs. Our server was excellent, attentive but not cloying.... More

A group of us were here for dinner. Given the rating on Trip Advisor, one kind of expecting near perfect choices. However that was not the case. Though a couple of dishes were said to be delicious, my Crispy Duck Confit was neither crispy nor tasty. In addition, the baby arugula salad seemed to be filled with baby spanish leaves,... More

One of our best meals in Vail. Would definitely return here in a second! High quality & innovative food prepared in a healthy manner from organic or local produce/meat etc. Just great flavor combinations. I had the Wagyu sliders (delish) and a salad. My husband loved his scallops. Waiter was professional and attentive. Totally recommended!

EXCELLENT in every respect; mouth-watering menu, delicious, beautiful plates, friendly, professional staff providing first-rate service, terrific room, great vibe. Chef Sean ROCKS! Dee's a doll.

Had two meals here this trip. Both were very good but neither was truly exceptional. I have to say that the vitality salad itself was exceptional but the main courses failed to excite as much. Wine list is pretty good. Nice to see good quality wines (Jordan, Patz & Hall) by the glass. So overall a very good rating.

A great location to eat before or after attending the symphony or dance festival at the Ford Amphitheater. A creative and diversified menu, consistently quality prepared dishes and attentive service.

My favorite restaurant in Vail. I love to go there in summer on my way to ampitheatre (it's close) for their "appy hour" for 1/2 off apps and wine.

After a long tired day skiing....order a pizza from here to take home of much here. Big pies with loads of great toppings. A dulce us only $5 and can feat two for snack. The pies are not New York or Neopolitan style and just American. The crust is cruchy like and light but in the mountain air...just fine! Drinks... More

Was a little hesitant to dine here but we're so glad we did. Menu was very creative and food incredibly good. Friendly waiter took good care of us. Our worries of it being too sleepy/quiet were quickly put to rest- even before the Jazz/swing band started playing to the tables. Would highly recommend.
