Knowing nothing about Terra, we booked a dinner reservation during a mid-week mini vacation - based solely on a quick survey of Yelp reviews. We were in for a four-hour treat. Prix Fixe with recommendations from our server and the sommelier rendered a six course meal. Every course was a revelation, and the experience held together in a way that... More

What an amazing restaurant, tucked away in a beautiful, restored, historical property in St. Helena. The food was spectacular, the service, impeccable and the wine list superb. A definite must when visiting the Napa valley

This was simply one of the best dining experiences we've had here in the Napa Valley. The food, the service and the ambience were perfect. It was a great way to end our trip.

I came to Terra while visiting California and the food was excellent. I had the cream of corn soup with polenta croutons and the Cod dish with shrimp dumpling. It was excellent! The restaurant is Asian fusion and offers a lot. Was definitely one of the best restaurants I went to on the entire trip!

My wife and I recently visited for dinner and had an amazing meal. We have eaten at Terra multiple times and this visit was as good if not better than ever. The staff was attentive and took great care of us during our meal. The menu was creative. We ate in the dining room section of the restaurant (they also... More

The food is great but the wine is seriously marked up. But you can bring a bottle if you buy a bottle. Expect to spend $80 each on five star food in 4 small portions.

Had an early evening meal here mid week in July. The menu was fixed number of courses but there was no fixed order or content, so with a 4 course option you could choose 4 deserts if you wanted, or 4 mains. We found the Japanese oriented dishes excellent but the more traditional western / Italian ones slightly less so.... More

We have been fortunate enough to dine in the Valleys very best restaurants. Terra very simply can run with any single one. The beauty is in Terra's delivery of ingenious menu selections from top to bottom, in a compact but stunning setting with spot on casual service. Without walking through the evening's selections, suffice to say that every single dish... More

Dined here with a party of six. The dining room is small and very comfortable with ample spacing between tables and a high ceiling. The waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable. Everyone enjoyed their dinner, but no raves. I would agree that the dishes are imaginative, but just very good. The service is not up to Michelin one star level.... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the Napa Valley. Very small dinning room. French Cuisine. Wonderful food and presentation. Have not had anything on the menu that I would not recommend.
