A good restaurant. The saying is true, don’t order seafood in Denver. It was not bad, but fresh trumps this any day. If you get too, the breakfast was amazing. They have perfect scrambled eggs in the morning, the bacon had a smoked flavor to it (amazing), and the bread was really fresh.

Terra Bistro was okay. Maybe a little overpriced for average food. Also the wrong salad was brought out for one in our group and the waiter was flummoxed about what to do despite being a pleasant person. Keep your expectations low if you go here.

colleague had the peppered filet and it was stunning. everything about the dish. the brocolini was crunchy, the mashed was creamy and the bordelaise was rich and delicious. i had the “chicken fried” wagyu filet and it was a travesty from start to finish. the steak had a watery flavor that i’ve never experienced before. the “chicken fried” part was flavorless and soggy. the rice tots where tough and stuck to your teeth, it was a complete miss.

wine was good though and so was the service.

Very creative food. The flavors of each appetizer dish were hitting all spectrums. The Ahi app was a high quality tuna with sticky rice tots, creative and the tables favorite bites.
We were stuck in back of a side room, odd, ambiance was not up to the prices of the menu when seated here, though it was much quieter than main room. Cocktails were also inventive and good. Carrot top pesto on salmon was a little too earthy for the dish but it was cooked perfectly. We will all definitely come back and will highly recommend this restaurant. Nothing boring on the menu!

We have been very loyal fans of Terra Bistro so hate to rate it so mediocre. But on this visit, it truly was. This is the second or third time we were seated in the back room - which is anything but special - is loud - and you feel like your server has forgotten about you. We do think ours did this time - as when the lamb was served, it was terribly overdone. Everything was just plain average.
Hopefully our next visit is dramatically better....

Had high hopes. Waited an hour and a half for our food, couldn’t get a second glass of wine until we were ready for the check, waiter didn’t check on us to refill any of the drinks throughout the meal. Not impressed for the price. Food was alright but nothing special.

The food was delicious. They have fantastic gluten free options, including a gluten free fryer that makes delicious seem like an inadequate adjective! Even the complimentary amuse bouche course was gf! My gluten eating dining companion loved everything as well, so no worries that they’re catering only to those of us unable to eat gluten. They just accommodate us as well as the normies without sacrificing creativity or taste. Yum! Can’t wait to go back!
