“Great views, great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Though Columbia doesn't have much of a skyline, you get great views of it from this restaurant, especially at night. Just across the river from downtown Columbia, Terra has an upscale ambiance without feeling pretentious. Don't be afraid to try something different on the menu; and much of it is different, so maybe not the best place for younger kids. Try the Mac 'n Lamb; I was a skeptic but became a believer!

“Not a better restaurant in the Midlands.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Everything is done right at Terra. From the food to the staff. Exemplary in every way. David, Howard, Andy and the rest of the crew make sure you have a great experience to go along with excellent dishes and spirits. All in a great atmosphere especially the outdoor patio at dusk.

“sO DELISH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012 via Local Picks

I love the quaintness of the location and the food is to die for! I always hope that when we get to get out of the house, we go there.

“Worth the short trip to this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

People visiting Columbia--don't be put off by the fact that this restaurant is in "West Columbia." It's just over the bridge from downtown and a short taxi or car ride away. Wow, The food is excellent. Seafood is awesome, and so was the steak frites. Lamb mac 'n cheese is amazing, and almost a meal (it's on the app list). We were in the mood so shared two pizzas. The duck confit with cherries was mind-blowing. The rabbit sausage with spinach and walnuts was great and only not amazing because the duck confit pizza was amazing! This is a must-try. Nice bar, too.
