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.

It was a culinary treat. A pleasant appetizer with a very nice wine. The steak was cooked to perfection. The fries were as though one were visiting France. There were also some tempting desserts. The location is great, the staff courteous and kind. Really another nice treat in Columbia!

Went to Terra on a moments notice with my wife. Sat outside on patio. Had an incredibility good meal, the best I had there in several visits. The last few times I gone to Terra have all been excellent. Is now on our "go to" list of restaurants in Columbia.

If you like local fare and proteins different from everyone else in town, this is the place for you. Rabbit, duck, crawfish, crab and oysters were all on our table mixed in with peach salad, pizzas and Mac n cheese! The fried peach pies were wonderful!

Wonderful food and great drinks (bartender is one of Columbia's best), but owner and host were both extremely rude and will make me hesitant to return.

I have previously posted positive reviews of Terra but, boy, have things changed. I have had poor service at other restaurants but never before have I had an evening ruined by the host and owner. We will not be returning.

The only negative thing I can say about Terra is that parking is a challenge. They do offer valet parking so that isn't a huge issue. The atmosphere is fun and well appointed. Not over the top classy, sort of an artistic upscale feel. I was impressed that the menu offered several items that included local produce and meat. The... More

Many restaurants are good for a while until the Chef changes or management has a change of heart, but this restaurant is run by the chef. And is it ever so good that it deserves a better rating system. It's not just good for Columbia, It would be excellent in any major city. And my wife is very picky. From... More
