My wife and I hosted my daughter here for her graduation dinner. She picked the spot and did a great job! Uber delivered us on time and we had a fantastic meal. I had the pork chop and both my wife and daughter both got the flounder. My She-Card soup was excellent, and the salads the ladies got were very... More

Dined on the 13th of April, and we were greeted and seated very quickly, our waiter Brian got our drinks and appetizer's ordered. We had the escargot and hurache which was a special for the evening. The escargot looked very nice but lacked flavor so I would pass on it in the future, however the hurache was very nice and... More

You know something's up when the chef comes out to greet you. He also happens to be the owner and makes all of the foods - pickeled cucumbers, foie gras - he makes it. We tried the Lamb Mac - excellent! Crispy soft shell crab - pretty good. Linguini Carbonara was excellent. Also try the Butchers Plate. Excellent service, good... More

Hands down the best meal you will find in the Midlands. The appetizers, entrees, and desserts were the bomb. Lamb Mac is a must have and the local ingredients used in most all of the entrees made it feel like a really special experience.

Fresh, fresh ingredients that are very well prepared. Steak was very tender and had excellent flavor. The tile fish was cooked perfect without being dry. Don't pass on the fried green tomatoes - crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. Be sure to save room for dessert. I didn't but the desserts looked outstanding. The by-the-glass wine selection could... More

Not sure why it took us so long to try Terra, but I'm glad we finally did. The service was outstanding. Our server suggested a fabulous appetizer when we couldn't decide what to choose. Excellent wine list as well. And someone who I assume was the manager checked on us twice. Can't wait to return!

A Tuesday night 7 pm. I drove looking for a great meal. Everything on paper looks good I am sure it has an awesome following obviously from the business they are doing well. However parking there was worse then terrible. Only stupid spot I could find on my own was permanently saved for the owner. And when I thought I... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Columbia! The food is wonderful--- lamb mac and cheese is a real winner. Tonight's She-crab bisque was also a great treat. Grilled Carolina mountain trout was a superb 2nd course and the caramel pot de creme finished a delightful dining experience. The service is always top notch here. Decor is modern but the exposed...

We are always, always delighted with our dinners at Terra. The menu is carefully planned and updated to reflect seasonal and local items. Mike Davis (chef/owner) is always at the helm of his well run kitchen, popping out from time to time to check in with the guests. The wait staff and bar staff are organized, efficient and well versed... More
