Contemporary French
Terre Rouge is a French Inspired Bistro located in the heart of Downtown Markham. The restaurant is influenced by locally sourced, organic, farm to table fare that is wholesome, and down to earth like the cuisine served in Parisian Bistros. Executive Chef Forrest Liu was classically trained by Jean Georges Vongerichten in Shanghai, and his menu is inspired by a modern approach to Traditional French Cuisine, focusing on simplicity and flavour.

We had a very good time here. The food was fantastic!! I couldn't have asked for a better place to take my girlfriend on Valentines Day... well the day after but still. We both enjoyed ourselves and the manager also made sure that we were good and enjoying the food. Will definitely recommend to friends and family!!

Definitely recommend this place. I went with my girlfriend who has a nut and seafood allergy and they changed and modified the meal to suit that allergy, many other places just suggest another dish. The service was quick and friendly and was overall really great. The atmosphere was phenomenal, the lighting was perfect; dim, yet well-lit, and the appearance of the food was great too. All in all, I'd definitely recommend Terre Rouge to anyone who's looking for a nice place to bring a special person.

The food was underage and for the price of 85/person it was definitely not worth it at all. Not a single course was memorable. The platting was nice but once you taste the food it was a let down.
The service was alright, most of the servers were juvenile and was unequipped to handle situations.
The ambiance was truly nothing special either, lived up to the minimum expectations of fine dining.
Overall, would not recommend the price or really come back again.

First time there, Charcuterie was recommended heavily by staff but was ultimately disappointing. Our entrees was the biggest let down though, the duck leg came out overcooked and was sinewy, the glaze they used was overly sweet and the fries it came with were obviously cooked in old oil and left out for a while as they came stale tasting and cold, which is unacceptable for our 40 minute wait.

The only thing I was happy with was the bone marrow and escargot, which as sad as it sounds was basically the only dish that didn't require much involvement by the chef.

The staff were attentive and pleasant. I'd give my experience a solid 3/10.

It was a great experience introducing our friends to this downtown Markham gem.
Excellent Petite wine pairing enhanced every dish chosen on the table d’hôte menu!
Again a remarkable French meal with the Asian touch.

We highly recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing!
We did the petite pairing which mean each dish is enhanced by the wine without drinking to much alcohol!
Every dish was a delicious discovery with different layers of flavour and well elaborated contrast from one dish to the next! Thank you to the Chef for a lovely experience.

Their website and sign says they close at 10:30. We made a reservation online for 9:30, just to show up at the restaurant and to be told the kitchen closed at 9, and so we had to leave.

Tried the tasting menu, upgraded to Wagyu was about 400$ for two people. Worth it in my opinion, the wagyu wasn’t the best I’ve had though - would not upgrade a second time.
Service was amazing, great spot for a date or even larger groups. The lighting is a little dimmed, music is the right volume, will definitely return.

Friendly staff readily welcome you to a modern (glass & steel with touches of warm wood) venue. Seated on the quieter second level for dinner we enjoyed a wonderful meal - delicious flavours, well timed and nicely presented with a tailored (staff-suggested) wine pairing. Standouts were the Marrowbone app (VERY generous), the Salmon Main. The Pork Shank Main is a must. Too full for dessert. Definitely would return.

We had the tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was *amazing*. We also splurged on the escargot and bone marrow, which was easily worth it. The service was prompt, helpful, friendly, and very professional. We'll be back next time we're in town.

We had a wonderful evening! We had the wonderful opportunity to be seated at at the counter hanging over to the prep area of the kitchen. Our evening was filled with wonderful discussions with Chef Liu that often checked in with us as well as with the kitchen staff while they executed their work in front of us. We also were being catered by Mr. Nguyen, the General Manager, who was simply delightful in making us feel part of the Terre Rouge fabric for a few hours. We had the Tasting menu with the wine pairing - everything was absolutely fantastic! Highly recommend you consider seating at the kitchen bar if you can...

Wow. Terre Rouge had fantastic service and fantastic food. I came with my family and the inlaws. They did not disappoint. My in-laws were so impressed with the presentation of the food. My husband had the rack of lamb and the sauce was sooo good that he even ate mushroom. The man doesn't even like to touch veggies!!!! I had the duck breast... just perfection. My mother in law had the cod .. she said it was just a bit salty but the dish was still delish. Father in law had the pork shank which looked great as well. Our appetizers were the kale caesar(it tasted great, I could eat more and yes the bacon was the highlight of the dish as other reviewers had commented), lobster tacos (wish they were bigger but yea I did also find that the sauce covered the lobster taste but it was still a tasty taco), buttermilk chicken( just a tad peppey for my taste) and the bone marrow w/ escargot. I would definitely recommend this place to all my friends. Would dine again.

Thank you Terre Rouge for such a wonderful night!

The waiter was amazing! He made sure we had a good time. The food was served with no sides which is very different from what we’re used to. My meal was filet mignon frites and I had to ask for mashed potatoes but that’s all it came with. My husband ordered steak and he was served just steak no veggies, no potatoes, just a plate of meat. That being said, I loved the meal.

This restaurant was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. I took some of my colleagues from out of town there for dinner. Having never been to this restaurant I was a hoping for the best and they certainly delivered. Our party of 7 people had a fantastic time and the food was spectacular. Service was top notch and the prices were reasonable. Parking was a bit confusing with the winter weather but nothing to discourage anyone from going to this restaurant. I am definitely going to come back to Terre Rouge.

After finding this restaurant online, with no recommendations from anyone, it was fantastic!. The food was exceptional, the service superb and very friendly, and the price was not too expensive (but not cheap). I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone. I will most definitely go again. I can't wait to try the items on the menu.

This is a good, upscale restaurant -- maybe the first of its kind in the Markham Downtown area. The food is delicious, though maybe a little bit overpriced for what you're getting. Portions are a good size. The restaurant is located behind the Carousel but getting into the parking lot can be a bit tricky. Ambiance of the restaurant is really. Lots of windows and bright spaces.

Food was amazing. Waitress was very rude. It was very difficult to get any attention from the staff. And when we did, it felt like she was very annoyed and frustrated. The owner was very nice but not his staff. Feels like they had no training or experience in other restaurants.
