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.

A lovely quaint busy little bistro with an interesting menu. There was a short wait so we sat at the bar and ordered a glass of pinot grigio and the grilled cheese and tomatoe basil dipping sauce. Unusual and Fantastic!
For Dinner we had:
Ginger & Cardamom Spiced Cobia
Caramelized Fennel & Shallot Hash, Orange Scented Spinach, Vanilla Saffron Beurre Blanc
Coriander Rubbed Ahi
Tamari Vinaigrette, Coconut Milk "Creamed" Baby Bok Choy, Yuzu Scented Sticky Rice.

The food was wonderful the service was good the atmosphere great!

We were recommended to this restaurant by a friend at the Four Seasons so we felt we had to go. The menu was interesting, waitress was lovely, very informed, shared many details about the wine choices, and the food specials, the steak, where it was from, the name of the ranch, etc.. So, we ordered the steak. We are not picky eaters, but I have to say the steak was tough, didn't eat half of it. Supplemented with dessert, not a problem for me. What was a problem was that the waitress neglected to tell us the steak was $145.00 per serving !!! We were stunned when we received the bill. Later during our stay we approached the manager, told him what happened, and he agreed that this was absolutely wrong and that he would take care of it for us. Two weeks later, never heard from him. We called, he apologized, said he would take care of it. One month later, nothing. I call this a total ripoff.

Having been there every Vail visit, we have never found anything to criticize. If you like good fresh food with attentive service and items not found elsewhere, Terra Bistro is the best in Vail, par non!

Revisited on our Vail vacation and it is a wonderful as ever, if not better. Vitality salad, duck, lamb and chocolate molten dessert...perfect. Service was very good and friendly. A lovely evening.
