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

A great happy hour -- this is a place that has its moments but has not quite achieved the greatness it aspires to -- service is solid if sometimes stolid -- nice choice of wines by the glass

I've given a handful (maybe too many) five star reviews. This place is a superstar. My wife is gluten free and to get a basket to start with a stiff sort of GF pita was amazing . Who starts a table with a GF "bread". Dip it in the Indian spice mix and it was a real joy. All five... More

We had a fabulous meal - the trout is so so good! I highly recommend this place. Great atmosphere too. Our waiter Vladimir was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Crispy asparagus was awesome!

The restaurant was recommended by a local. We went early and it was not very crowded causing us a little anxiety about our choice. It gradually picked up so it probably reflects our early reservation. The staff from the host to the waiters were pleasant, friendly and attentive - professional in all respects. My wife and I split a garden... More
