I give this review 4 stars instead of 3 because our waiter from Bulgaria was the best! I am a vegetarian and he was so helpful, telling me what dishes were vegetarian/vegan and how they could alter certain dishes. He was also very friendly and welcoming. My husband, who eats fish occasionally when he knows it is fresh, had the... More

While the menu offers fresh organic dishes, which were all prepared well, this restaurant is in my mind overpriced. Dinner for 5 on 4th of July (with no wine or dessert) was over $400. There are many other more moderately priced places to dine in Vail Village.

My boyfriend loved the smoked trout Cesar salad but wasn't to my liking. He had the rib eye which is what i usually order and loved it. I had the short ribs and didn't like it so much but don't normally order. He said it was great. I'm thinking i had an off night. The atmosphere is great and on... More

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.
