Went to happy hour at bar. Bartender told us red was a Cote des Rhone for $8 a glass. Served us Evodia that retails got $8 a bottle. Shame on this place

The atmosphere and food were wonderful. We had a group of 7 and having a round table was perfect for our group. The food was delicious. I was in the mood for salmon and it was perfect! We heard the desserts were delicious but had no room... next time!

This restaurant has been a Vail visit for me nearly every time I visit Vail with friends other than for a quick ski. The food is pretty decent. But don't look too closely, this place is tired and dingy in the daylight. Needs a remodel. I've done a private party here and it's the same thing. Decent food. But overall... More

My aunt was in town and Rocky Mountain trout was a MUST for her. The concierge at The Osprey Hotel recommended this wonderful place for us. Our waiter Ian was great! Very attentive and knew his stuff. The flat bread plate dish was AMAZING. seriously, we could have eaten this all night long. For starters we had the salmon crudo,... More

Nice restaurant, however, has only 1 vegan entrée and 1 vegan appetizer. Great service and seems to be well-liked by locals and visitors alike. Highly recommended by hotels.

We wanted a quick meal before attending the Vail Dance Festival and saw that Terra Bistro did a daily happy hour with half price appetizers. That sounded perfect and it was. We tried the Waygu burger with cheddar, the deep fried asparagus, the tofu spring rolls with sweet chili sauce and the spicy beef lettuce wraps. The lettuce wraps were... More

This is one of the best restaurants in Vail and in Colorado from my perspective. Give their happy hour a taste and you will be sure to be back for dinner. Cheers

Stopped in, had a delightful light dinner. The bartender was very helpful - great glass of wine, wonderful summer rolls (fresh spring rolls) and chicken yakitori skewers. Perfect night out!

Tetrra Bistro is a favorite in our Family and has been for several years! The food is very sincere and creative without going over the top. Regardless of the dish, the flavors are always interesting and very complementary. I was a little disappointed to see only one salad on the menu, but it was excellent! My husband enjoyed the scallop... More

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.
