We have been to Terra Bistro numerous times over the years and the quality remains among the best in the highly competitive Vail Village restaurant scene. It is the only restaurant where we were welcomed back. We sampled a variety of appetizers and small plates....More

This is a very nice restaurant. Atmosphere was nice. Food was good and service was relatively quick. The only place they have room for improvement is portion sizes are relatively small and prices are high.

Terra Bistro is one of two of our favorite restaurants in Vail. The management (Tony) ,the food, staff are exceptional. Have recommended it to numerous visitors to Vail. Our most recent visit was pleasantly more of the same.

Terra Bistro is fading. In the past you received ample small plates for reasonable prices. Now it is very small plates and high prices. Beware.

The service and the food was fantastic! It was pricey and a little fancy for kids, so I recommend an early reservation. I highly recommend the butternut squash with duck, yum!

Lactose intolerant, glucose free diet or anything else, they will change the menu to meet your needs. Others try, but the reputation here is long standing. Food is very good and adjusted to you taste.

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.
