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

Everyone knows that Terra is a Michelin star standout. Perhaps not so well know is that the bar area, which serves food as well as drinks and wine, is also most excellent. Great atmosphere with some local favorite dishes, such as Ramen, Miso Cod, and Fried Rock Shrimp salad. They occasionally have tuna head and collar, which is amazing.

A great find, and apparently I'm late to the game. This gem has been around for many years and happily the food is still excellent. The service is a bit casual for my liking, but the food and setting are spectacular.

When searching for high-end, Michelin-star dining, we have learned that money goes farther and the experiences can be better outside of San Francisco. It was your proverbial dark and stormy Sunday night, but we ventured forth on our long drive to St. Helena for dinner at Terra Restaurant. I was afraid that the heavy rain might cause flooding or a... More

How do I start? The staff was attentive, warm and informative. The food was scrumptious. Beautifully presented and wonderfully imaginative and flavorful. I'd give this restaurant 10stars if I could. Don't miss this foodie-lovers delight.

My husband and I were very excited to eat at Terra; unfortunately, it was a disappointment from start to finish. First of all, my husband enjoyed his dinner, if he were to write this review he would likely give you a very different overview of our experience - he had 5 courses, and seemed to enjoy everything. I on the... More

Terra was great - we loved the service, the small and intimate dining room and the food was excellent. It's a four, five or six course dinner and I love how they let the guest choose from all of the courses, including dessert to mix and match as they please. My highlights were the scallop crudo, the lobster tortelloni and... More

My husband and I have been eating at Terra since the 1980s and it is still a wonderful experience. Service is wam and professional and the food is always exceptional.
