Michael and the entire team at Terra made us feel so welcomed and thoughtfully attended to all of our needs. I have found my new North of city dinning spot. Will also try sister properties. This is a must visit spot. The food is on point and service is excellent. The lice music on Saturday night was so intimate and classy. Great spot for grown ups and families alike.

Simply, old fashioned elegance and service. ALWAYS on spot with making you feel special...dinner is a special event. Every time I dine @ Terra, I always regret that I don't come more often. THE ONLY place north of Eglinton for delicious food, the most pristine service, and an elegant, sophisticated evening where you realize that these people TRULY know service and fine dining. Thank you, Terra.

Tables in the dining area are way too close to each other. The whole night I could clearly hear the next table’s conversation as if I was sitting at their table. It was very disturbing and ruined the evening for us to listen to all their conversations for the whole night.

Food was good and service was great. Just not the way the tables are set up.

Once they moved us from the corner space next to the bar, everything was great. The first spot was an out of the way private area that could accommodate up to 12 people but it was a dump. We moved to another table and everything from that point was great. Good service and good food.
Renovate or stop using that 1st spot it would be ok for a low end restaurant but in no way is representative of fine dining.

Been coming here for more than a decade. While the food is above average, it does not justify the exorbitant prices charged. I have experienced equally good food for half the price. A decade ago the dishes stood out, they don’t any longer. I can’t recommend at the price point.

My twins birthday. Service was great , food was delicious. I didn’t care for the trio of musicians. I found them too loud for the space. Nor did I care for the singers voice my personal opinion.

What an extraordinary dining experience. I had the Ostrich au jus and my wife had the Black Cod. They were 10/10's. Oddly enough so were the salads. Best service. We love going here and it is a 90 minute drive each way.

We have dined at Terra several times. This is a fine dining restaurant with prices to match. This time we tried their Sunday menu which offers a prix fixe selection from their regular menu but at lower prices. We were very pleased with our meals. Crab cake appetizers were delicious and they do an outstanding job with fish dishes. Desserts are outstanding. Service is excellent, professional but quite friendly. Tables are a tad close together but overall this is an admirable restaurant.

This was our first visit to Terra thanks to a gift from our 3 year old grandson. The ambiance was excellent and the food well presented. The staff was courteous and always ready to help with questions. The only comment I have is where we were seated. There were 2 tables of 2 separated by an ice bucket - not the problem. The issue was that we could hear every word of the conversation that the people were having next to us - not necessarily convenient as they could probably hear ours even though we kept our voices low. I did mention it to the manager on my way out the door just as an observation and something that should be looked into as sometimes the conversation is meant to be private and intimate and not shared with your neighbor. Other than that, we will definitely be coming back.

Excellent Carpaccio, maybe the best I've ever had. Seafood pasta was terrific with fresh made pasta. Possibly the best Creme Brulee I've had as well. While the clam linguine tasted great, it contained a bit too much sand / grit, and despite saying it contained chilli peppers, it only had one small sliver. I'll chalk it up as a rare mistake. Overall, I'd highly recommend this place and I will be back. Ask for the bread, it's quite nice. Excellent service.

I have been coming here for years. But my last visit the service was terrible.
Even thou the restaurant was half empty it took us at least 30 min to get our drinks.
When the appetizers arrived the server forgot the side plates.
When the main course arrived we had no cutlery we had to request it.
The same thing happened with dessert and once again we had to request it.

I loved the place. Food was great particularly the lamb rack, however portion of the risotto was a bit too little, overall everything we ordered were great. Service was good. Live music was a bit loud. I definitely will recommend the restaurant to friends.

We are huge fans of the restaurant and we were excited about getting a five star evening however much to our disappointment the restaurant was not its superior self. The evening was just like any other restaurant the things that set Tara part like wiping off your table and the survey between meals and the cheese and crackers after the meal or something that we always look forward to. I’m not sure if they were shortstaffed but we were disappointed

First time there and was extremely impressed. This is why I don’t really decide on going from other people’s reviews because if I did I would have missed out on delicious food with excellent service... Will definitely be back!! Highly recommend. Xoxo

Server never did bring bread to the table....and we suspected we were ignored, since there was a plate for it. One would think when they realized, they would have brought it. We seem to have been the only table that did not. My meal requests got the “we don’t do substitutes” rhetoric. I asked for salad instead of potatoes, and that meant paying 16 dollars for a full salad, when all I wanted was a small salad in place of carbs.
Too bad. I will say the Arctic Char was great. One of my friends wanted to go back for the seafood pasta dish, and what she got this time was a poor comparison to our earlier visit. No tomatoes, no real flavour...another too bad.

We go to Terra a few times a month. It’s right by our house and food has always been amazing!!! This last time though they dropped the ball! We got our food sooooooo late AND COLD!!! The portions were also smaller than usual which was weird...
I love the food so much there and I’ll go back again but if I get the same service I’ll stop. That will be very unfortunate...

This is our second visit at this location, and once again, it did not disappoint. The mussels were excellent, and our main courses of duck and grilled sea bream were exceptional. The food is very well presented, and the service is great!

My only criticism, is that they need to update the decor, cocktail menu, and dessert menu. Needs to be more upbeat. Having said that, We will most defiantly be back.

Highly recommend.

Excellent experience from start to finish. The services was top-notch with a large resource of available servers always tending to each table’s needs. Staff were friendly and engaging. The food quality was high and everything was tasty, well presented and expertly cooked. Pasta was fresh and al dente. Seafood was flavourful and not over cooked. Calamari was smooth in texture with no rubbery component at all. Serving sizes were reasonable and satisfying. Salads were exceptional (Caesar Salad and Rainbow Bowl). This was a great find and we will definitely be back. The menu offered many options for seafood, pasta, red meat, chicken and exotic dishes of the day. We were also very pleased with how child friendly the staff and food offerings were.
