“Great Food and Service, Music is Annoying”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

Wonderful food and service, but at lunch time I found the loud house/dance music to be really annoying. It does not go with the type of restaurant this is. I would rather they play something that didn't make me feel like I was at a dance club. I would like to relax during my meal, not get up and dance.

Great selections from sea food, steaks, pasta and so on. They normally have a few daily specials. Food and service is great, a great restaurant for special occasions.

“Terra always looks nice but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Service was sporadic and our waiter appeared overworked and flustered on a Sunday evening. This is when the restaurant does their version of Summerlicious and offers a prix fixe menu.

It is a nice, classy-looking place to eat where customers enjoy dressing for the occasion. The servers try their best but on this evening, the bus boys needed to know things such as: serve from the left, remove plates from the right and also that it is not acceptable to stick your big arm in between 2 customers to remove plates while they're having a close personal conversation. At the least, they might say, "Pardon me".

Staff appeared unable to cope with the number of tables that they had and service became more haphazard as the night wore on. Although everyone appeared to enjoy their food, my salad seemed to be overloaded with vinegar but the rest of my dinner and dessert was excellent.

For a restaurant that aims to be high caliber, a little more staff training might be a good idea. For customers, don't go on Sunday night.
