I have always loved Terra Bistro my favorite in Vail so this was the most disappointing experience. The wine was great the bread fabulous and the sorbet terrific but the rest of the meal was over salted to the point of inedible! I had the crab cakes my partner the steak and a side of potatoes. All just way to salty to eat!
I’ll go to Sweet Basil next time

We had a lovely dinner. Service was excellent and food was very good. They ran out of the beer my husband wanted but suggested a more expensive beer but would not give him the same price. They did take a dessert they recommended that we didn't like off the bill. Overall and nice vibe and good food.

I have been to Terra Bistro several times and have always found the food to be excellent and reasonably priced, with great ambiance and an environment quiet enough to enjoy table conversation. Excellent service and a creative menu.

Intended to be a finer dining experience, food was not cooked as ordered (undercooked fillet, undercooked chicken). Flavors were interesting, wait staff was attentive, and sommelier was fantastic, but for the money spent, we were unimpressed. Suggest eating at Sweet Basil instead.

I had specifically requested the front room which I'm sure most people do but it's the second time we been there we were all the way in the back the table next to us had three children ages 5 to 15 and all three of them lay their heads on the table and fell asleep I thought that was extremely rude that's not your fault but service was not very good they kept serving the guys first they need training! Tried to take my plate when half of my meal was still on it never came and filled up the water till we asked never asked us for another glass of wine? Waited almost 30 minutes past our reservation for a table I realize it is busy at that time of the year but we will not be back used to be one of our favorites no longer

Fantastic Menu, great service. We dined during or Xmas stay, so it was hard to get in. But well worth the wait. The Porkchop, filet, and brick chicken were the table favorites. Stay for desserts.

My ate at Terra Bistro during our ski trip over Xmas (12/25/18) and was tremendously disappointed. Ridicuously overpriced for what you get (we had the salmon poke tots to start; the chicken, coconut curry and salmon, the blueberry compote cornbread for desert). Tiny portions; high prices. Ambiance was nothing special. Hate walking out of a a restaurant only to want to stop for a burger on the way home. Luckily we had a some cold pizza leftover from lunch in the condo fridge.

We had the grilled mahi mahi---excellent; Striped bass---also excellent; and two versions of the green curry, one with chicken and one with tofu. All were wonderful. The cocktails were also very good, especially the traditional Manhattans. The wine pours, however, were meager---my only complaint. Service and ambience were excellent for a family Christmas Eve dinner!

Dined here Christmas week with the family. Always one of our favorite restaurants. Most of the menu is either gluten free or can be easily modified to be gluten free. Some new items on the menu which were delicious and innovative. Everyone enjoyed their specialty cocktails, appetizers and dinners. Highly recommend!

We visited Terra Bistro a couple of years ago and were not impressed, but wanted to give it another try. We like the dishes - gnocchi, lettuce wrap and green curry. However, we found that the portions were quite small, not a good value, especially when compared to other restaurants at Vail.

The bistro was dimly let's very quiet a great atmosphere for a night out with friends or dates or my case a birthday celebration. The food exceeded my expectations perfectly delivered in taste and presentation. The wait staff were more than friendly and very informative with their knowledge of the cuisine. We left knowing that we will be coming back!

We'd heard great reviews of the restaurant & was looking forward to a special celebration dinner for my husband's birthday but sadly, we were disappointed with the food. It was good but not over the top great. At least two items we ordered were extremely Salty but otherwise, a bit bland.
