I should come more often. We met friends for dinner and all had simply an entree. Oh my, my barramundi was special. It was a surprise to me. I always forget how very special this food is.

Went during their 1/2 price entree promotion near end of ski season. Lamb chops and trout were cooked perfectly and with good flavour. Accompaniments were well suited to the dish. Service was very good.

We come to Terra Bistro a couple times a year when we are in Vail. From happy hour drinks to appetizers, entrees and desserts, everything is always excellent. Highly recommended!

Who doesn't love great bartenders? Mike and Nick are the best hosts - friendly, professional, offering suggestions. The happy hour menu is amazing. We ordered so many delicious dishes - vitality salad, scallops, raw fish that I can't remember the name of(!), beef lettuce wraps and gnocchi. OMG over the top food sensations. I want to go back now!

First, the setting - This is a hotel restaurant, large room with reasonably (not widely) spaced tables. Many large groups with children so perhaps not the most romantic setting for two. However, the food, is really excellent - some of the best in Vail. Service was excellent - friendly and attentive. Wide ranging wine list – but several excellent whites... More

Two of us had a really good dinner, both getting the lamb chops which were slightly overcooked(more medium than mr) but still incredibly good. Also highly recommend the squash soup. Good service and great people watching bar though small. Make reservations well in advance.
