We were moving our freshman into Northwestern University, and found Terra on our way back to hotel. Valet parking was welcome, and our waiter could not have been more cheerful! We had pasta bolognese, scallops, chicken and tuna. Food was all excellent with beautiful presentation....More

Our evening began watching a big game while sitting at the bar and having a very nice mojito--in the winter, which is rare due to the mint. The bar was quiet enough to enjoy the game, and the company friendly. Then we took our table...More
