Terra at Eataly Boston

$31 to $50
Contemporary Italian
Located on the third floor of Eataly Boston, Terra is a unique restaurant inspired by earth and fire. The dining room centers around a wood-burning Italian grill, where the Terra culinary team cooks raw ingredients over burning flames, allowing the simple flavors to shine.

In every earthy dish, the fire’s smoked warmth rekindles our fundamental connection to the elements. Plentiful and playful, the grilled plates are perfect to share around the restaurant's rustic tables, especially when paired with seasonal drinks.

    Terra Patio is so beautiful, dining among skyscrapers, feasting on the best food in the city, and the staff is superlative. The waiters and staff are so professional and accommodating. Our professional waiter Vinithisus enhanced our evening along with another (did not get his name). The evening was pure joy and perfection all around.

    The main reason I’m giving 3 stars is due to the lackluster greeting we got from the hostess. We waited a few minutes and she passed us and said she’d be right with us…and then proceeded to get a high chair and slowly bring it to a table and waltz back to the podium.

    I had Fettuccine Al Ragu Di Terra. I didn’t like it. No salt, no flavor, no meat, no sauce, no cheese. The worse pasta I ever had. I couldn’t eat. They just took the amount from my bill. No one asked me if I’d like to have another dish. Bad service, bad food. I’ll never come back.

    Booked a business meal, drinks and apps that were ordered took >30-45 minutes to arrive (regardless of first or second rounds). The main course took almost 1.5 hour to come, during which one of our table mates had to leave for his next meeting without having eaten. During this whole time, we had to make multiple inquiries about our orders and repeat them to the servers. There seemed to be a communications breakdown between the servers and kitchen. Had high hopes, food was good, but unfortunately Terra did not deliver on service and timing. Pity, but I cannot recommend :(

    The setting is stunning. I’ve been here for dinner a few years ago but the quality of the brunch food was not the same. And they ran out of dishes so there were less options. The staff were kind but seemed overworked and it seems they could use some more help.

    I sat outside which was welcoming but they did not have heaters for the cooler morning temperature. I had to ask twice for a booster seat, which while the service was great I felt should have been offered at check in. Our server made great suggestions! I will be returning and recommending.

    Nice ambiance but the bloody Marys were very watery, the cheese board was delivered without bread that was mentioned in the description, and I only got about a tablespoon of cream cheese to go with the smoked salmon and focaccia that I ordered.

    The host should have informed us when we sat down that the kitchen was closing in less than 45 minutes. As a result, we were only able to have an appetizer. No meal!!

    I’ve been at Terra several times and the experience was always pleasant. This time the service was very adequate however I ordered a salad with shrimp it was extremely disappointing. The shrimp addition was $12. What showed up was a very tasty salad with just the right amount of dressing and two (2) shrimp about the size of a 1/2 dollar coin. 2 at $6 a piece. As I was with a business associate and recommended Terra I was clearly embarrassed for what I received. Of course I did not complain as it would have been inappropriate at the time. I’m really fairly easy to please but this was nothing shy of a joke. I’m chalking this up to an honest mistake. If it’s not there needs to be better supervision in the kitchen.

    Terra has a great atmosphere. It's insta-worthy and nicely decorated. The waitstaff is friendly and accommodating. The ingredients are high quality, but unfortunately the execution is lacking. I can recommend the burrata (appetizers) I cannot recommend the fried cauliflower and mushrooms, or either of the fritattas.

    We ate at the roof top lounge. There were mice everywhere!! The servers all know, but could care less. They were standing to the side talking about them and watching them around. A guest even said something to a server and he said “oh yeah, oh well” and threw his hands up. I know it’s outside, but there were just so many of them. It was gross.

    We got the swordfish which was tasty and the fettuccine ragu which was good, but not the best pasta I've had. The overall stars were the side/small dishes: the potatoes were the best I've tasted and the skewered mushrooms were delicious!! Overall, the taste of the food didn't match the price. The area itself was cool but a bit loud. Our experience was good but most likely won't go back

    Very disappointed. The food was not good. We had the oysters appetizer. It’s the worst oyster I’ve ever had in my entire life! The $30+ steak is a small steak strip with a few pieces arugula on the side. And the service wasn’t friendly. Will never go back. Not recommend at all.

    My husband and I booked a reservation for our anniversary and figured we would try a new place. We were surprised and extremely disappointed as the service and experience was horrible. We had a feeling as soon as entering the hostess station when we weren’t greeted properly or welcomed. Our server didn’t even introduce himself either. We had to consistently call him over to ask for service. By the time he was around to take our order the menu special was already sold out. With our experience the amount you spend at a restaurant has an expectation of exceptional service and unfortunately that was not the case here. We will never recommend this restaurant nor returning ever again.
