Terrain is a favorite when we go to Longwood. We love the creative and unique menu choices amidst the tropical decor. Our servers were polite. The hostess was welcoming. And the food and beverages...delish. Always a winner.

Server only came by to take our order and give our food and drinks. No check in at all to see if we needed anything.
The food was salty, and cold

$60 and we went to Chick-fil-A after to eat because we were hungry

Food and service were excellent. I always enjoy the delicious complimentary bread and seasonal butter.
The local ingredients truly stand out in their food.
Already looking for a reason to come back!

Easter dinner for 5. The Terrain burger and scallops were very good. The lamb was so tough, my individual who ordered it was unable to eat any of it. The third course of the 3-course meal was really poorly done - it lacked anything special. The shrimp and grits were tasteless. It was as if zero seasonings were used. The shrimp were just steamed with zero flavorings. Was going for a special meal that was above my typical price bracket and left disappointed.

The best thing about this cafe is the atmosphere. Absolutely stunning. Food was good too but slightly pricy. Would recommend.

We enjoyed Easter Brunch outside and absolutely loved it. The food was fabluous and being BYOB we brought Champagne to enjoy with their fresh OJ. Service was also top-notch and table spacing was more than adequate. Yes we will be back!

Food and ambiance were superb. We waited 20 minutes past our reservation time However for our table to be ready and our entrees took over an hour to come out. The staff was apologetic and friendly so it worked out. However if you’re on a lunch break or time crunch I would advise take out and sit outside and enjoy the scenery.

Food is very fresh, very tasty, reasonably priced! Waitresses are always nice here. One thing to note, there are 2 "seating areas" so if you want to be in the greenhouse space (personally it's got better ambiance/is prettier!), you might want to specifically request that. Our party was a group of 5 people, so we had to wait a little bit to make sure we could eat in the greenhouse area.

Something missing now. Waitress distracted. Had to request silverware n salt n pepper. Luncheon salad greens did not appear "fresh", wilted tasteless arugula accompanied by Spartan cubes of dried out cheese, less than amount of pecans in dish. High price for offering which was barely satisfactory. One very small loaf of warm bread in clay flower pot served to 3 guests. Questioned former reputation to myself. Music overhead table exceptionally loud. May not return soon.

The atmosphere and ambiance was amazing. Please please please let's talk about the food. It was my wife birthday and she is a French toast fanatic. The French toast, coffee, fresh baked bread and home made butter. Ooh I can't forget the breakfast board. All was outstandingly amazing.

We read afterward that they had good bread but we never got any. There were only three scallops for $30 with no sides at all. They had the door open on a cold night because of Covid protocol but no other restaurant does that. Would not go back and I don’t know why people like it as much as they do.

My issue with this place has nothing to do with the food or service but their management at the store. My wife had our first child 6 weeks ago and we made Terrain our very first solo outing away from the baby for her birthday.

I called Terrain and Terrain cafe for 3 days (Friday, Saturday, and Monday) trying to get anyone to answer the phone. I went as far as to leave a voice mail with my name and number asking them to please call me back so I could confirm our reservation. Nobody ever answered or called back. When we arrived we had a late lunch which we both agreed felt rushed, and then after lunch we were told that the store and cafe were in fact closing early that day and we would have to hurry up and head out.

It was so disappointing to have driven almost 2 hours, gotten a babysitter, and taken time off of work to come enjoy this location and then be rushed out. I would be understanding if I hadn’t had the forethought to call over and over again to avoid exactly what happened. If you’re a major store like you are you should have someone answering your phones or at the very least updating your website.

We sat in their parking lot after being rushed out and on their website AND google it was listed as being open until 8pm for the cafe and the store would be open until 6pm. They told us we had to be out by 5 and made sure we were.

We love this store and cafe and have been coming for years. It sucks that what was supposed to be a special day out was unnecessarily cut short. We could have easily adjusted our plans if anyone had just answered their phone in 3 entire days. I’d still recommend but do yourself a favor and make sure they’re actually open the hours they say they are before making any long trip there.

Service was poor. It was my daughters birthday and we got stuck at the worst table. Good was just plunked down in front of us. My daughter was hit by a server passing by our table. So excited to try but very disappointed with the entire experience.

I don’t think we ever actually got assigned a server. We kept having to ask people we saw to bring us things. Soup and bread came before drinks (pot of hot tea). When those arrived we had to request napkins and flatware. Someone else brought us entrees. Had to find another to bring us ketchup. Had to find someone else to bring another ramekin of ketchup and she didn’t bring it until 10 mins later. Everyone was nice but it seemed like a free for all from the wait staff. Ambiance is amazing and food is great too. It’s the service that needs better training or staffing.

This was our first time here and overall the meal was delicious. My husband had the chicken special and my halibut was delicious. I had a lovely salad to start. The reason that I'm not giving it five stars for the food is that dessert was good but didn't live up to the delicious quality of the rest of the meal. It was fine, just nothing very special. We will definitely be back--it's a lovely setting and the staff was helpful and accomodating.

We went for a birthday brunch. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Loved that the food tasted fresh and it was BYOB. The only downside was I had put in my reservation notes that we wanted to be seated outside, called to confirm we were able to be sat outside, and even called again the day before the reservation to confirm outside seating would be available and somehow when my party arrived they were still sat indoors. I have not been comfortable dining indoors during COVID, but I arrived last and could slightly feel the air circulating throughout the greenhouse, so I decided it wasn’t the worst situation and didn’t want to make everyone move. I would just expect if I confirmed multiple times that the note would be acknowledged.
