“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Chef Andrew did a fantastic job of creating an oil-free vegan tasting menu for our table of four. The food melted in our mouth. Everything was seasoned to perfection, beautifully presented and the vegetables were very fresh. We will definitely return!

“Have a Drink But Don't Order Dinner”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Terra restaurant is beautiful and a lovely place to have a drink. Alas, the food is dreadful, Even worse if you look at the prices. My companion's crispy trout was certainly crispy if you mean dried out and overcooked like some wooden sticks. My taco included beautiful little cubes of rubber-like pork with virtually no seasoning. Added hot sauce made it eatable.

Lots of really good restaurants in Santa Fe. But not this one.

“An Oasis in Beautiful Countryside”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We were invited to a birthday celebration at the chef's table which was inside the kitchen at Terra. It was a wonderful experience. Eight of us sat in the middle of a pristine kitchen. Chef Andrew Cooper, a very nice and calm man, was at the head of table and continued to run the kitchen as per normal. But the change up was that he brought all of us into the operation of the kitchen; shouting out orders and also participating in the preparation of the courses themselves. The food was outstanding. Chef Cooper has a wonderful sense of balance in his food preparation. Nothing overwhelms, but everything complements. He uses produce from the local Santa Fe farmers market, and menu composition is dependent on what is fresh. As an amateur cook myself, and one who appreciates the techniques of food preparation, the evening was a real treat as Chef Cooper was more than generous in sharing his recipes and techniques with me.
I would highly recommend this experience to anyone who appreciates good food. This was a memorable evening and we will certainly be going back for more

“Disappointing”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We have dined at Terre annually since it opened. We have seen numerous changes at the retaurant since Four Seasons aquired the property. Not for the better. Last year we complained about the loud, disjointed music selections. This year the music was just as loud, but all county, which is at odds with the decor, ambiance, and the menu. As for the food, we started with the corn/shrimp chowder and enjoyed it very much. If only the entrées were as good. The Bison filet was luke warm of not cold. We asked for it to be warmed up and it returned dry and over-done. The manager graciously and repeatedly attempted to make it right by offering to replace the dishes and ultimately took the $45 for each plate off our bill. She and her dining room staff jumped to do the right thing, which we appreciated. The unfortunate thing here is that it was the kitchen staff who failed the restaurant. Given the variety of new and exciting places that have opened throughout Santa Fe, it is unlikely we will return to Terre.
