The ambiance is there. The service is attentive. The quality of food is excellent. The offering of wines is superb. I truly miss the pork tenderloin entree and the tuna appetizer on the menu. I had hoped that it would have been put back on the menu by now.

Having spent many years visiting Vail in winter and summer I am always impressed by the quality of food and outstanding dining experience. Terra Bistro is one of my favorites with a comprehensive menu that is always evolving with Chef Sean bringing the very best of his creativity to the beautiful ambience of the place. If you haven't done their... More

Celebrating the last night of our Vail vacation we dined at Terra Bistro. It was memorable experience! Starting with spectacular appetizers including stuffed dates and seared scallops. The mains included Colorado trout, a crispy duck leg, and beautifully fresh ravioli. All of the courses were impeccably cooked and seasoned. The desserts (with a memorable bittersweet chocolate sauce) and coffee were... More

Four of us had dinner here one evening. The service was very poor. It took quite a bit of time before we were even asked if we wanted drinks. This was after waiting 20 minutes past our reservation time. From there, getting our meals ordered was problematic. We actually had to chase our waiter down to place the order for... More

We met some other couples from Chicago there for dinner. We had fantastic service and guidance from Ian. The squash soup, scallops, mushroom salad, lamb chops, mushroom salad with hassenfefour , and special mushroom with spices entree were all delectable. Nice warm welcoming staff with great food. Pay them a visit and I bet you will be back for more.

The menu at Terra Bistro is fine dining and pricy. The food was solid enough but the whole experience left us wishing we had returned to either of the two other restaurants we had visited that week. We had a reservation at Terra Bistro and it wasn't particularly busy the night we went but we were escorted through a dark... More

We go regularly and have never had poor service or a disappointing meal. Our waiter was very attentive and knew the menu well. The wine list has some awesome options.

We have eaten at Terra Bistro in summer and winter, during busy times and during the off -season and have never had a bad meal.The food is always fresh and innovative. Sometimes we're disappointed that dishes we have loved in the past have disappeared from the menu, but the replacements are every bit as good. And we travel with a... More

We were looking for a more upscale restaurant in Vail Village and found Terra Bistro. Nice decor, very upscale, but not pretentious. It's a ski resort restaurant so they obviously have to make allowances for jeans, ski jackets, etc. but you will not feel out of place wearing a sport coat and slacks here. Love the menu, lots of varying... More

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.
