My wife and I had dinner here based on reviews she had read. I’m so glad she found Terra. We had one of the most pleasant evenings we have had in a long time. Our server, Jonas was amazing. He is very knowledgeable and after...More

This restaurant has been the best restaurant in Columbia for a while. The owner/chef is very hands on and creative. Big on local fresh food. You can’t go wrong but make a reservation. Very popular

Very solid offering. Service was a bit reserved but adequate. Food was well prepared. Wine list was a bit thin but we found something to suit our pallet.

We have wanted to try this place for several years. We have been missing out on a great restaurant. We wish we had tried it sooner. Great and creative selections. Fair price for a very good meal. Great staff! We felt like family.

I always enjoy a meal at Terra, for girls night out or a date night. The menu is small, but they have nice seasonal features and daily specials, especially if you're willing to be a bit adventurous. I particularly enjoy their pizzas.
