Sooo wished the food was better and so so ambience. Friendly kind service. Entre selections were so so apps were pretty good. The wagyu carpaccio was excellent and so was the tuna tots. Cauliflower Soup was OK. The kids mocktails were excellent!

We came to Terra for Christmas and it did not disappoint. The dishes were well seasoned and everyone, including my very picky 17 year old, was happy with their choices. We enjoyed meat dishes and a delicious creme brûlée dessert.
