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”.

Delicious Food

Dined at Terra Bistro after doing the zipline & ropes course for lunch. Had three adults & 3 teenagers (16-18). We had sandwiches, salads, & soup. The French onion soup was excellent & the salads were a good size for lunch. There was a good variety of selections on the menu. Although we found it... read more

I visited this restaurant as part of a restaurant your and was very impressed. They make many of their own cocktail mixings. I enjoyed trout with carmelized onions and kale. It was really delicious. The atmosphere is also really beautiful. I would like to come back to try other things on the menu.

Sometimes you just have a Really fantastic time at dinner, and my first dinner at Terra Bistro was one of those nights! I recommend the Grilled Rocky Mountain Trout entree, the Seared Skuna Bay Salmon entree, and the Brussels Sprouts! I had never tried Colorado Trout and decided to order it here. Absolutely Delicious! Moist, perfect texture, and the sauce... More

Thanks for making my wife's birthday so special! Perfect meal start to finish. We showed up ~30 minutes before our reservation and started at the bar with some very nice cocktails. The hostess seated up very shortly after. Our server had about every aspect of fine dining. We were here for the night, so weren't in a rush by any... More

Kalee, our server, was great. She was very kind, but perhaps more importantly she was extremely attentive. She always knew what was going on with our table and managed to keep a steady flow to things despite our staggered orders. The food itself was fantastic. The flavors were amazing, and the textures perfect. I'm generally a pretty picky guy about... More

The wait staff were wonderful but the food was lack luster. With all the wonderful restaurants in Vail to choose from, I would not eat here again.

A friend and I had dinner at the Bistro. The menu is not huge but everything we ate was extremely delicious and beautifully presented. The service was also excellent which made for a wonderful evening. It has a good location in Vail. Highly recommend it.
