Honestly. This place went downhill like a rocket. It used to be great. It was the place to go a few years ago. Couldn’t believe Poot it now is. Food and service were not bad. But not great either and the place now looks and feels so outdated.

Two couples celebrate their anniversaries together every year at the end of August. We have gone to several restaurants in Vail and have had wonderful experiences . Terra Bistro was one of the best. Everything was perfect!

The restaurant would have gotten a 5* overall rating had they served a complimentary chocolate or some small desert as a celebration of the anniversaries. The staff did wish us "Happy Anniversary" when we arrived. Most restaurants that ask is you are celebrating something special do acknowledge the occasion with a complimentary aperitif or dessert. It definitely adds something special to the evening.

Thank you for a Terrific evening!

Wonderful service and the food was thoughtful and delicious. We had a lobster pasta and the sablefish. For dessert we enjoyed the creme brulee, which was much more creamy than I've had at other restaurants. We love staying in Avon during our Colorado trips but often have to drive to Vail for dining. This was our first time here. The ambiance was warm although there's a tad of luxury. It didn't feel cold and is an excellent choice for a romantic dinner. Great wine selection as well.

Made a reservation for an engagement dinner, noting that in the reservation. Everything was great but the engagement was not even acknowledged. Everything else was great, was just expecting a classy/expensive restaurant would make the event more special.

Good location in Vail, easy access from the Interstate and next door to a large parking deck. We walked through the Village prior to dinner and enjoyed the scenery and looked forward to our meal. Terra Bistro had a professional staff and they were proficient at handling a crowd. The setting of the restaurant was good for a family with children or sitting at the bar for the limited menu. The full menu was average and the food was only average as well. Prices were reasonable. In short, we came to Vail with high expectations and have been pleased at 4 other restaurants so far. We'll pass on Terra Bistro when in Vail again.

We discovered TB last summer 2019 and fell in love with the food and the place! Came back in March 2020 and again this summer! I think they are closing after winter 2020 so go enjoy a great meal and great service! The food is creative, fabulous combinations of flavors, and great service.

We have eaten here on 4-5 of our trips to Vail. This is the first time that we had a very bad experience. First, the menu was nothing like the one posted on their website! The vegetarian options were downright terrible!!!! Our service was just as bad ! The waiter basically ignored our table and picked up one of our half eaten entrees so quickly that he didn't even give us time to ask for a take home box. He also didn't even offer to give us a take home box!!! We have no desire to return !!!

We came to celebrate family birthdays while on our annual ski trip. Terra Bistro is always a favorite spot. We increased the size of our party a few days before our original reservation, and Tony was wonderful in helping us move things around a bit to accommodate the change. We love Tony! I can’t say enough about how special this place is to spend the evening... and the food is delicious!

Normally we never miss eating at Terra Bistro when in Vail. It is usually top of our list. But this time several things missed the mark. We were seated next to a very large party that was buying loud. Even the table behind us was super annoyed. What can you do? It not only ruined our dining experience but we couldn’t enjoy our food or have conversation. Truthfully management should have spoken to them. In addition, several items we requested were forgotten. They eventually came after an abundance of patience but I’m not sure if it was bc of the large party or an off night on their part
Aside from that they double booked us which created a problem for me with Open Table reservations.
If this was a new restaurant for me I would never go back but since we always eat here when we go to Vail, and we’ve been going for many years, I give them the benefit of the doubt that we had a one time bad experience this year. Hopefully next year will be better.

We had the tuna and tots and crab cake for apps, and the pork chop and beef noodle bowl as entrees. The tuna and tots was terrific. As were the entrees. I would skip the crab cake. Wine list was impressive. But no values to be had.
