We had an adult dinner with friends. It was the best Salmon I had ever had. I also had a mushroom salad and arugula grilled. Everyone enjoyed their dishes; service excellent too.

This is a large dining venue with three separate areas. But despite this not noisy. As the American entrees are large we did not have a starter. The Colorado lamb chop was well plated. Cooked as ordered, tender and good lift with the tart cherry mostarda. My wife's trout was bland but she did enjoy the accompanying sides, we both... More

When in Vail this should be on your list of restaurants to visit! It gets really busy after 7 of course but what restaurant doesn't. Reservations a week in advance is a good idea to get a great table during ski season. Amazing chef everything is fresh and on mark for a true culinary experience.

Not our first time, but absolutely the best! Nick G, our server was out of this world. Attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. The food was amazing. We continue to come back and recommend it to everyone.

This restaurant has a wonderful reputation for great food. However, with our last visit, we left thinking that we would never return. Both my husband and I ordered medium rare lamb chops. They were beautifully presented, but mine were almost raw and inedible. My husband's chops were perfectly cooked medium rare. I sent mine back to the kitchen and 20... More

We looked for a restaurant with good reviews that was close to our hotel and chose Terre Bistro. Our meal was very good. The scallops, pan seared salmon, & mushroom salad were all delicious and service was friendly, professional and attentive.

This was by far the best meal we had in Vail. The service was fantastic and she gave excellent recommendations on drinks and dishes. Would highly recommend the gnocchi (amazing) and the duck confit. Will definitely be back next time!

Went here twice this trip. Had the vitality salad both times (it's really good). Had the barramundi one time and the salmon the other. Didn't think too much of the barramundi but the salmon was very nice. I like the brussels here are well. A little kick from them. So overall a great place.

I'm very torn with this review. In prior years this restaurant has been one of my favorites - I've always looked forward to dining here at least once a year when in Vail. I was here this past weekend, and sadly, it was just a blah experience. Service was fine but not great. Cocktail list just wasn't fun anymore. Food... More
