Not cheap but certainly worth every penny. Food for all types and any mood - from Duck confit pizza to smoked trout to unique dishes. Everything with a gourmet twist. EXCELLENT (and I come from a family of chefs and gourmet cooks). They also handle allergies very well! Excellent wine selection. See Andy at the bar and he will make... More

I love this place. Honestly to start off, when my husband and I went when it first opened, we had 2 not so great experiences and decided not to go back. Luckily, a couple years later, a good friend suggested we give it another try and I couldn't be happier we did. Terra easily has the best steak in town... More

Tried to get a reservation, but they were booked, however the thoughtful receptionist suggested to come and they would try to seat us in the patio- which ended up to be perfect on a cool night. The service was very good, the presentation was great, and the food came out hot, perfectly seasoned and tasty. The cuisine was nouveau Southern,... More

My closest girlfriends and I dined on the patio last weekend and everything was delightful. The service, the wine, the drinks at the bar before,....we all ordered apps and a pizza and split everything. Cost was reasonable for such great food and atmosphere. And the weather was great. It seems the patio is a best-kept-secret. Let's keep it that way!... More

We dined with a party of six, each getting a different entree. They were all so good we were not embarrassed to "share our plates" a bit. The night-time skyline view of downtown Columbia is amazing. Also, props for having Tito's Vodka on board.

The food here is Amazing! The restaurant can get a little loud, but the food makes up for that! The lamb Mac and the quack Madame are to die for! My husband and I both had fish and it was sooo good. The menu changes often, but the ingredients are so fresh. A little pricey but beyond worth it! Make... More

Whenever we return from Europe, suffering Post-European Withdrawal Blues, Terra of an evening is our first stop. Chef Mike Davis is a true master of the "slow-food" movement, crafting luscious appetizers, entrees, and desserts from the best of hand-picked, in-season, local ingredients, suited to the local climate and "new south" palate. Whether just for a glass of wine and an... More

Just stopped in for a few cocktails at the bar. Andy was a master at mixology and we really enjoyed the vibe. Great atmosphere. Also, friends had some amazing pizza, only had one slice but it was absolutely delish.

Was here for a business meal and the menu was predetermined. The ribeye was very good but the sides were ho-hum. Other people's trout looked great as did the veggie plate. Bread unremarkable. Service attentive and pleasant.
