Description: 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.

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Must be the best in Vail, I like to have my meat well done and they have the best well done beef and pork I have even tasted, much better than Mastros of Beverly Hills, Mortons, Ruths Chris...which I thought was fantastic...Service was wonderful and desert was out of sight, and yes, I never like mussels but this place totally changed my mind.

“Unusual excellent food with lots of flavor in a great atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

Are at Terra on a guys ski trip. It was awesome. The chili garlic edamame is a must have. All of the food was well seasoned and beautifully prepared and presented. Our waitress, Margene, was fantastic. Her service was impeccable and she had a great sense of humor with just the right amount of attitude for a table of four guys. Highly recommended.

“Pure fresh food and great atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013

We love this place. Our family makes a reservation for this restaurant every year. We have a 10 year old son and a 7 year old daughter. This is fine dining but I have never seen such an awesome kids menu. My kids look forward to the great Kale chips every year. You will not be disappointed. This is a must stop and you can take your kids if they are well behaved. We had the cornmeal trout, filet and the tuna entrees and they could not have been better. Took my parents this year and they could not say better things about the food. Service was awesome!

“Brilliant food, just steps away”

The food was absolutely wonderful. Try the Armish steaks. An extensive wine list, with professional but relaxed service
