They offer free valet parking at this historic 1800's church, now restaurant . Normally this is a very pricey place so we went during Queen's feast and they offered affordable selections on a special menu. Server was very professional. Atmosphere was romantic in the evening. People were dressed in business casual and fancy. Bonterra has awards from wine spectators list.... More

We don't understand all the hype this restaurant gets. The server was professional, but we got the impression he too thought the place was overrated. We can't even remember what we ate there, just that it was "so so" and over priced. We love to dine out and all we recall is that we were so turned off by the... More

I love this restaurant for so many reasons and last week I discovered another reason... their patio! I met a girlfriend for wine and apps last week on Wednesday and discovered they have half price wine on Wednesdays! We had the charcuterie, mussels, and calamari and everything was fantastic. I love their patio set up and super glad the umbrellas... More

Bonterra is one of those places that we reserve for special "splurge" occasions. There are other restaurants that offer as good food and better values, but Bonterra has a unique combination of atmosphere, good food and excellent service that causes us to return periodically for special occasions. This former church was well suited to be repurposed into a quiet, pleasant... More

The location is easy to find and offers valet parking. The food is wonderful, the servers know what they are doing, and a great wine list is offered. The bread was great and we enjoyed a wonderful green salad with house dressing. It was followed by prime pork chop; and it was the best we have ever eaten. It was... More

Food is always great, wine list is amazing, service second to none and the atmosphere of an old church make for the perfect restaurant experience. The lobster is my favorite but the specials are always "special" and the desserts are some of the best ever. Love,love ,love this restaurant!

Bonterra is my Husband's favorite restaurant. Service is amazing and the wine selection is one of the best. Very intimate atmosphere which makes it perfect for couples. This visit the fried lobster tail was good but can't say was the best that I have had. Sea bass was also good. Really enjoyed the dessert. This visit was on Valentines and... More

My husband and I had a lovely date here. The food, oh my, amazing I tell you. Although I must say I was not a fan of the crab cake. I'm from D.C. so I'm particular about my crabcakes. They were not lump, but backfin. I mean I literally wanted to go back the following night to order the same... More

The staff was amazingly helpful and accommodating from the moment we booked until final clean-up. They worked with our every wish and idea - and were helpful and easy to work with. And the food!!! Everything was so delicious - I... More

Bonterra had great food and wine. We celebrated my brother's 75th birthday here in the wine cellar room and the service was great as were the wine and food. We liked the fried lobster tail, I just had the small one which left room for one of their awesome desserts. I would recommend this restaurant if you are in the... More
