Loved the complimentary Dahl spread they serve. The gluten free pappadan was a nice touch - and delicious! Loved the Rocky Mountain Trout and sweet potatoes. Loved the scallops. And most of all, loved the cocktail with in-house brewed ginger ale. The only thing I wish they would do more of is seasonal veggies. I was surprised by the out... More

The "sort of visit" below is not accurate having eaten there a multitude of times in all circumstances. The food is great and healthy. Kevin the chef had a breakfast where all the ingredients had to have been used for food prep for the past 1000 years. No processed anything. Tuna Tar tare is amazing. The warm sweet potato ravioli...

From the artful appetizers, creative entrees to the excellent wine list, Terra Bistro is a true top notch restaurant. If you love wine, the wine list is also excellent. The sommelier made excellent pinot suggestions to pair wonderfully with the food. Avoid Sweet Basil at all costs and go to Terra Bistro instead. We wish we had eaten here twice... More

Unusual and Fantastic! For Dinner we had: Ginger & Cardamom Spiced Cobia Caramelized Fennel & Shallot Hash, Orange Scented Spinach, Vanilla Saffron Beurre... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by a friend at the Four Seasons so we felt we had to go. The menu was interesting, waitress was lovely, very informed, shared many details about the wine choices, and the food specials, the steak, where it was from, the name of the ranch, etc.. So, we ordered the steak. We are not... More

Having been there every Vail visit, we have never found anything to criticize. If you like good fresh food with attentive service and items not found elsewhere, Terra Bistro is the best in Vail, par non!

Revisited on our Vail vacation and it is a wonderful as ever, if not better. Vitality salad, duck, lamb and chocolate molten dessert...perfect. Service was very good and friendly. A lovely evening.
