Outstanding dinner during the slow tourist season. Salmon was excellent as were the heirloom tomatoes. Appetizer of cheese sticks got rave reviews too. Quiet tonight and that was very much to our liking.

I was so happy that the hotel concierge recommended this restaurant. The vitality salad was excellent...so glad the recipe was on the website. Then, I had the barramundi with the lemongrass broth...also superb. I would love to have the recipe for the broth. I am not sure that I will ever return to Vail since I was in town for... More

Not sure where the less than glowing reviews came from. We experienced great service and outstanding food. Beginning with cocktails, excellent Moscow mule. Tremendous salad, and the entree, we both had the chicken it was both interesting and tasty - loved the savory and the sweet with the pickled watermelon. We strongly recommend.

We had a group of 8 including a baby and child and the staff were so kind and helpful to us. The food was excellent and there was a 50% off deal for all main courses. I would recommend making a booking for this place.

We had eaten here last year on our trip to Vail and enjoyed it, but this year we were really disappointed. Our food was just Ok - nothing special at all. The portions seemed even smaller than before and the flavors were ....well....just OFF! The dessert was even a bigger disappointment - very small and tasteless. Not sure I will... 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

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 top... 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.
