We had high expectations when we made reservations at the Terra Bistro, but unfortunately they were not met. The food was quite good, but for the price they charged we expected a lot more from the service. After taking our order, our waiter basically ignored us. He never came back to the table to ask us if we needed more... More

I wish I could give Terra Bistro more than 5 stars. When my husband and I vacationed in Vail several years ago, we ate at Terra Bistro every night and the food was always fresh and delicious. We returned to Vail in July of 2015. At this time I had many dietary restrictions for medical reasons and was concerned about... More

Excellent, diverse menu offering local produce and field-to-table features. The trout was particularly good, with a generous whole fish offering. The wine list was broad. Perhaps a tad expensive. Service was attentive, but not rushed.

We had a solid meal here. But given the price and reviews, my expectations were higher. First of all, the place was not packed but we were seated within a foot of another couple, despite there being multiple other tables that would have given us more privacy. The kale chips were not impressive nor was my watermelon cocktail. Our entres... More

I have been visiting Terra Bistro for years and I am always pleased with the food. I bring my out of town guests here. Excellent ingredients form the basis of great dinners. Very good wines by the glass and an extensive wine list. The atmosphere is upscale and minimal noise. I especially like the vitality salad, salmon gravlax, scallops crudo,... More
