I went there for dinner. It was an amazing experience. The food was extremely well prepared and the portion size was generous. The only negative was the high noise level. I would go back when I am in this area the next time.

Ordered the steak with fries which was very good. Surprised to find such a limited menu. Wine list was ok but not a wide variety. Friendly staff, excellent waiter. Enjoyed seeing the lights of downtown from the window tables. Some menu dishes appeared to be on the pricy side.

We had not been to terra in a couple of years. Our prior experience has been good. I left very disappointed. Both fish dishes were mediocre . Salad and pizza was very good. Two out of four ordered red wine. It tasted like vinegar. At 10-12 bucks a glass, I expected more. We sent them back and the server did... More

The restaurant has a nice ambiance and friendly staff. I've ordered shrimp salad and lamb Marc. Taste and quality of food is just average.

We came as a group of four, we ordered some appetizers to share and each our own main. Everything I tasted was delicious, well spiced, cooked to perfection & beautifully presented. Great quality food and service! The waiter knew the menu and the drinks, and was able to make good recommendations. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for... More

The first time I ate here it wasn't that good. That's what I get for coming in half hour before closing. The last time I came it it actually lived up to the hype. Food, drinks and desert were amazing.

This is always a favorite. They know how to prepare fish! The cheese tray was wonderfully fresh. The salad tasted as though it was picked fresh and made that very moment. Wreckfish Rillete worth fighting over. Morel Mushrooms a "must try" and well rounded dish- not just about the mushrooms. But don't dare leave the table without trying their home... More

Service is decent but food could be much, much better. Presentation poor and fish over-cooked. Salad not cool and crisp. Parking is a real challenge.

Beautifully decorated restaurant with a nice bar. Staff was outstanding. We only had a beer and an appetizer. Both were good. Not enough draft beers. The food was good but we prefer more flavor and spice. We might go again. Looks to be very popular. Very clean. Good parking.
