Borrowing the Latin word for Earth in its name, Terra Bistro has been transforming whole foods into gourmet innovations for more than 17 years. Today, Terra Bistro is still considered a leader in the gourmet green movement. Our menus are 100% all – natural and our recipes utilize 85% to 100% certified organic ingredients. Over the years Terra Bistro has also lead the charge to embrace earth - friendly and humane values in operating our business. Our chef diligently seeks ingredients from sustainable sources and humane conditions. All seafood on our menu is Seafood Watch approved and/or a member of the CleanFish Alliance. Terra Bistro employs an in-house state-of-the art water purification and bottling system, which each year prevents thousands of bottles from entering our local landfill. We are also partnered with the Humane Society of the United States and the ProtectSeals campaign. World-renowned and a local favorite, Terra Bistro is a must for the green-conscious “foodie”.

Still one of the best choices in town

I have been dining at Terra Bistro every time I come to Vail and I keep enjoying it every time. As the menu changes frequently (at least every time I come) I have been hesitant to try new dishes but to my surprise they keep raising the bar every time. This occasion I had a duck confit that was... read more

I have always loved Terra Bistro. This time was the exception. My date had a pork chop which was nothing special. One woman had the duck which she loved. I had the fish and it was terrible. No... not poor, but so bad I could not have more than one bite. The waiter was nice in taking it off the... More

The food here is great but after you finish your meal you start to feel woozy and it's really hard. I had to walk back to the bus and I could barely walk back. Other than that this is a great restaurant to go to while in Vail.

The food is adventurous and delicious. The service is informative and prompt. Pricy, but well worth it!

We had been staying in a condo and cooking or eating carryout for most of the vacation. Primarily because we had two very young grandchildren to cater to. So I took the family (5 of us, no grand kids) for a nice dinner at Terra Bistro. My wife and I have eaten there several times before and they have never... More

We visited this restaurant and bar during happy hour shortly after getting off the slopes. The small plate selections were creative and delicious and the happy hour drinks nicely prepared. Our bar tender checked back with us to make sure we liked our drinks and food. We found it amusing that there seemed to be one grumpy bar tender and... More

We had the Vitality salad with crispy prosciutto and scallops for starters. The salad was fab! Scallops were ok. Entrees, I had the crispy duck leg confit and my husband had the grilled Australian Wagyu tri-tip and it was ok. Sides on both dishes were wonderful. Will probably explore some other places in Vail before returning. Worth a visit!
