THIS was a real surprise bc We did not know what to expect. From the moment we entered it was a very nice experience. Starting with maitre d’ , everyone was very friendly, patient and helpful. Would definitely come back.

Food was decent but trout was dry and clearly not fresh. Odd given we’re near lots of streams. Cooke skillet was mediocre and good small. Steak and pizza were very good. Service excellent. Decor is unremarkable. Feels a bit like a hotel function room.

Fantastic dinner and evening, as always.. The thing we love about Terra Bistro is that there’s always some unique flavor combinations and there’s substantial proteins and vegetables on the plates. The food is fresh and delicious and the presentation is beautiful. Andy was our server tonight. A nice Kiwi guy who was attentive and friendly and provided exceptional service! We will be back next time we are in Vail for sure! Probably our favorite dining experience in the valley.

It’s a very nice place, and the food we ordered was delicious, Salmon Tartare, PorkShop and Truffle Alioli French Fries.The cocktails were very good and original. But they ran out of 2 dishes we initially planned to order, Tuna Terra Tots and Short Rib and the waiter wasn’t too attentive.

Food was fantastic, steaks cooked perfectly, and the service was quite nice. It was a birthday dinner and when we ordered dessert they really went the extra step for us on that. Will certainly be back!

Ask to be seated in front room—-do not be exported to the rear of the house as you’ll feel abandoned

Terra Bistro is one of our go to places when we are in Vail. Food and service are always very good with interesting menu items. Nice wine list. We usually save Terra Bistro for our last night in Vail. Year in year out Terra Bistro consistently delivers a wonderful dining experience.

Overall just okay for the price. We had reservations far in advance and were seated next to the outdoor exit. Our waiter was not very attentive and was in a hurry to get away it seemed. The lamb was very good, especially the accompaniments. The beef shank was just okay. The sweet potato hash was great as a side.

Visitamos el restaurant con muchas Expectativas y altas recomendaciones, definitivamente al comida es excelente pero esta quedó rezagada por el mal servicio que recibimos en un restaurante de esta categoría, los tragos mal servidos, poca o ninguna atención del mesero, el servicio de pan llegó con el plato
principal, hicimos el reclamo que fue escuchado con atención y gentileza por parte del manager. No recomendaría ir a ese sitio por su relación precio servicio.

Wonderful from start to finish. My husband had the filet and said it was one of the best he has ever had. I had the lobster pasta dish which was also perfection.

Food was excellent and creative. And we got a round table for our party of 9 which was a bonus. The only downside is that you have to walk though the lobby of a hotel and Vail Athletic Club (with a smell of chlorine) to get in. It would be better if it had a separate entrance.

Wonderful birthday dinner for my wife. Food was creative and remarkably great...but we ordered too much. We should’ve shared a first dish or an entree. Outstanding service.

Delicious food and drinks. We had the ahi poke terra tots, parmesan gnocchi, fried goat cheese, and Berkshire pork chop...all ridiculously good. The sage+vice cocktail is also a must try. Amazing food combined with excellent service and an easy location makes this a highly recommended spot.

Waitress was “snippy”. Ordered soup salad and entree . Everything came at once . Beautiful wine list . Hard to get reservation but restaurant was empty when we arrived (830). Food was good . Came for my daughter’s 23 Birthday and when we informed waitress she said ‘Well we don’t do anything for birthdays , we are not that kind of restaurant. ‘ I was embarrassed. Still ordered 2 $120 bottles of wine . We are that kind of family.

We visited La Tour, Sweet Basil, The Left Bank, and Up The Creek during this visit, but Terra Bistro was the best meal and agreed upon by all four in our party. The Poke Terra Tots, Parmesan Gnocci, and Fried Goat Cheese were outstanding. The Poke dish is world class exceptional! We had the lamb chops, Potato crusted Walleye, and the Curry Beef...all great. Wonderful craft cocktails...and Great Service from Kila! Kila was very knowledgeable of all the menu and made great recommendations. We shared the caramel banana pot de creme and the molten chocolate cake for dessert!

Our party of 4 appreciated the quiet of the side room and the service personnel were great. Unfortunately, the food was where our disappointment lay. No dish was better than good, and one of their signature dishes - the roast chicken = arrived so dry, it was inedible. Also, it took three tries to get a “clean” martini from the (apparently new) bartender, who kept sending them dirty. If I want to drink olive juice, I can buy a bottle. When I order a martini, I want to taste the gin. Hope they get their act together. Terra Bistro used to be one of our favorites in Vail.
