We visited on a Wednesday night and they were booked. We had Ian as our server and he was very pushy on the appetizers and drinks. We kindly said we didn't want them and were having dinner and dessert and he continued to push to uncomfortableness. The food was great, we had the ribeye and trout. Dessert is a must... More

Our breakfast service was wonderful. The Happy Hour specials were value added. Dinner was extremely special. The staff ensured a perfect table setting with great attention to detail. Service was superb. The entrees were wonderful. We followed up with a dinner reservation at Sweet Basil. What a contrast. The food was not exceptional in any manner at least for what... More

I took my son & wife to dinner during restaurant week. The three is us sampled four appetizers & each had a different entree. Blown away is putting it mildly. The flavor explosions we each experienced with our appetizers and entrees has us eager to return! Seriously, we've travelled extensively and Terra Bistro rates right at the top. We can't... More

I visited this restaurant during "restaurant week". The restaurant was very busy and I was dining alone. Once I flagged down a waitperson the service was very good. It is a little too bright in this restaurant given the quality of the food. It needs to have a little more of a fine dining atmosphere. I know that it was... More

We loved the service and ambiance at Terra Bistro. We went for the first time during restaurant week. My fish was fabulous! However, my husband ordered the ribeye and it was horrible! It was about 1/2 inch thick, under seasoned and over cooked. He gave me a taste and I quit after one bite. I am not sure why he... More

We were looking for a lively hot spot with inspired cuisine. Thanks to our concierge, we found Terra Bistro. We felt at home from the moment we walked in and our server was genuinely happy to take care of us. Even the gentleman who checked our coats seemed to be genuinely interested in our opinion of our meal. The food... More

For more than 23 years Terra Bistro has been an essential dining destination for Vail Valley visitors, as well as a lasting favorite among locals. Chef Shawn Miller's adventurous approach to seasonal ingredients yields imaginative, carefully-crafted dishes and ever-changing menus. With a special focus on lighter fare, but with plenty of opportunity for indulgence, our menus naturally accommodate a variety of tastes and dietary restrictions, including gluten allergies and vegans. Accompanying our menus is our extensive wine list presented by our very talented in-house Sommelier. Additionally, we offer a variety Colorado craft beers and our specialty cocktails, inspired by Colorado spirits, are often a highlight of our guest's experience.
