Fantastic dinner at Terra! They make the best gnocchi I have ever tasted. The caesar salad is incredible. We enjoyed the branzino. It was moist and delicious. The portions were large. Everything we had we loved.
I have to comment on the fabulous hospitality. From when you enter the restaurant to when you leave to go home, the staff are so welcoming and warm. They make you feel like they are really happy to see you. Our waiter was phenomenal. My mother has Alzheimer's and was with us. She asked the same thing a few times and went on and on. Our waiter was so kind and caring with her. Our waiter was attentive and the service was fast and great. We can't wait to go back!
P.S. Took an extra order of the gnocchi for lunch for today! My son devoured it.

Way way overpriced! $70 for a rack of lamb with mashed potatoes and rock-hard carrots and parsnips (?). $85 for a 14 oz. striploin with nothing else? $33 for tuna appetizer (which was good though). C'mon, the prices make no sense! This used to be our go-to restaurant but would only go now if someone else is picking up the tab (ie. business). The value proposition just isn't there.

Prices were higher by an average of $6 compared to the prices displayed on the website.
Seafood spaghettini missing lobster tail as advertised.
The menu is now overpriced.

Very bad experience, they put us on the aisle seat, and also right behind the music performers, I hardly speak with my partners, can't believe a Fine Dining Restaurant can treat their customers that way, the experience is terrible...

The service was great. I started off half a dozen with east coast oysters and some red wine (wine list is great), the spicy vodka sauce is amazing, cant get it anywhere else. The oysters also came with a lime, not just a lemon and three more sauces :) These were not the best oysters I've ever had but they were delicious, fresh, and with the wine and sauces had a great overall taste. The bread was not the best and I found it interesting how they gave you olive oil instead of butter. Terra's whole aesthetic is very pleasing too, it has warm un-intense lighting with beautiful décor which really does enhance the fine dinning experience. The service is great and you constantly have people checking up on you, filling up your water and making sure you enjoy your meal. For me, the portions were great. I got the smallest steak and sill did not finish it but the waiter was right, they do have a "perfect medium rare".

We went back to Terra for the first time in 15 years. Terra was a large part of our lives as it was mine and my wife’s special place. We had memorable dates leading up to our marriage , celebrated our engagement , our first child , my wife’s labour started on March 19 1997 at Terra to name a few. So we decided to go back and celebrate our 25th year of marriage.
My review … Food was exceptional as ever , every mouthful was absolutely how we remembered it magnificent.
The ambiance and overall experience was disappointing. Although our server was nice and gave a decent effort. We found the interaction with the half a dozen staff to be cold and robotic , I think for the most part the staff lack experience. No real insight to the menu and fabulous dishes offered. The meal seemed very rushed . Appetizers arrived within 5 min of ordering not giving us a few minutes to settle into dinner, dinner arrived within 5 minutes of finishing our appetizers.
We had mentioned in the reservation that we were celebrating our 25th , not a word checking in , throughout , until we had ordered desert and it was written on our plate (a little late and frivolous).
The pandemic must of wreaked havoc in staffing so we will give it another try because of the food and our history.
I think the staff need to study the menu and study the chefs craft and history. Learn about creating a memorable experience by taking pride in their chosen field of work by studying and embracing each shift each customer. Going thru the motions is just not good enough in the game of fine dining.

We were disappointed on Saturday night. After eating at Terra for special occasions many times over the years we noticed a difference in the food quality. To start, the waitress forgot things we asked for on 2 separate occasions. We asked for butter for the bread, never came so asked twice more and then we asked for more bread during the meal and it also never came. The gnocchi we ordered was tasty. That is the 1 positive comment I have to say. The way the table was positioned the waitress had to walk behind my husband on numerous occasions and he had to constantly pull his chair in making it an uncomfortable situation for him. Finally I decided to treat myself with a pomegranate margarita and it was absolutely terrible. I expected a lovely sweet cocktail but when I got it it was bitter and too strong. I asked for more juice and she brought me straight lemon juice. awful! very disappointing dinner....

Was celebrating my friend’s completion of chemo treatments and the restaurant, as always for a celebration, recognised it with a beautiful plate of biscuits. By far my favourite restaurant in Thornhill/uptown. Always a consistent level of great service and good food. Never been disappointed during a lunch or dinner, or business event there.
