Been trying to support an old standard for fine dining in vail its missed the mark on our last three attempts. So we're done for a while. Average and below on several levels. Better choices are available when in a resort like Vail.

Good Colorado food, we have eaten dinner and breakfast. Had the trout (you can select happy trout or angry trout, they wrap it differently) and it was great. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the food.

We were a large party of 8. Our server did an awesome job of answering all of our questions, making recommendations and taking care of us. Prices are a tad on the expensive side but the food was delicious.

For more than 23 years Terra Bistro has been an essential dining destination for Vail Valley visitors, as well as a lasting favorite among locals. Chef Shawn Miller's adventurous approach to seasonal ingredients yields imaginative, carefully-crafted dishes and ever-changing menus. With a special focus on lighter fare, but with plenty of opportunity for indulgence, our menus naturally accommodate a variety of tastes and dietary restrictions, including gluten allergies and vegans. Accompanying our menus is our extensive wine list presented by our very talented in-house Sommelier. Additionally, we offer a variety Colorado craft beers and our specialty cocktails, inspired by Colorado spirits, are often a highlight of our guest's experience.
