We went to Terra on a Thursday night for my wife's birthday. The last time we were here it had an. A la cartel menu but now is a tasting menu, 4, 5, or 6 courses chosen from 12-15 savories and 6-8 sweets. We did the 4 course menu and chose different items. The portions were large enough to share,... More

At the last minute we learned that the menu was priced fixe for four courses-not what we wanted. But there was a steep charge for canceling our reservation. They told us we could sit in the bar and order from a bar menu, which we did. Most of the food was tasty but the portions were very small and the... More

As we arrived at the restaurant Chef stepped out of the restaurant and went along a small raised garden bed which hugs the beautiful stone building housing Terra. He was snipping from the plants. This foretold the fresh and innovative meal which lay ahead. The menu is wonderful. There was not a single dish which did not tempt us. We... More

My wife and I had dinner at Terra. In the past we enjoyed Ame but since it closed, we have to drive to St Helena. I ordered the crudo, risotto, quail and steak. My wife had the crudo, chawanmushi, black cod and scallop. Everything was delicious! Service was attentive. We finished dinner with strawberry parfait. We'll be back!

Finally got a chance to try Terra right here in our town, and we can see why it is a Michelin-starred restaurant: * Decent atmosphere -- nothing fancy or special (after all, the view out the window is looking at a Safeway... that part is the only downside. Everything else is classy but minimalist, clean and comfortable while not being... More

I travel to Napa about once a year, and always try new high-end restaurants. Terra is now at the top of my list. Every dish (7 courses) was superb. I highly recommend Terra to anyone seeking a fine dinner experience.

Took the four course option for $89 and was not disappointed: chilled capellini with caviar (excellent); lobster tortelloni (very good); black cod (excellent); Abelone (excellent); duck (very good); steak (good); macadamia tart (crust too heavy); and goat cheesecake (very good). There is a $25 corkage fee but the manager kindly waived it as we had to wait 15 minutes before... More

This review refers to the full menu restaurant, not the bar area. Loved the menu concept of ordering 4,5 or 6 courses at a set price for each option. This allows you to configure your experience how you like. Each course is ample in portion size, especially if you're doing 5 or 6. I thought my 6 were superb. My... More
