  • If you make it past the finishing line after wolfing down pot roast braised in Karl Strauss Amber Lager or Terra's famous pumpkin ravioli, ask for the chocolate cigar for dessert.
  • Try tha ginger lemongrass lemonade it will make your mouth explode, tart and zingy. Tha lavender creme brle and tha choco cigar are yummy.
  • The staff is very friendly, incredibly fast service, delicious food! I had the penned pasta with grilled asparagus and chicken. It was a pure foodgasm!!!
  • Best burger I ever had! And the bread pudding is to die for.
  • Great food...lavender crime brulee is wonderful...sadly, bait and switch on the free appetizer/25% off when you demonstrate your fouesquare check-in. :(
  • Owner/chef Jeff uses organic and locally grown veggies as much as possible in his cuisine. Also if you have a special need call him up a day ahead and he'll take care of you.
  • Incredible flavors and textures will make our taste buds dance! The best Sea Bass in San Diego by far, the eclectic Lobster Macaroni was a surprising delight. Perfect presentation great service.

  • You can't go wrong with the Lobster Mac & Cheese
  • Everything
  • Right coast lobster roll
  • No wait, great brunch!
  • Second time here should have never came back. Service is terrible, with the exception of the bus boy who is on top of things. The food was way to salty and the lemon ginger drink is way to sweet.
  • This place is amazing, especially for the prices. Sunday brunch is phenomenal. As for gluten free- that have an abundance of gluten-free things and the staff highly knowledgeable of these items & more
  • Used to be Terra in Hillcrest. Menu is much simpler but just as delicious. Don't miss out on the excellent food just because of the drive. It's so worth it.
  • Food was excellent as well as the desserts! Service on the other hand was a 2 on a scale of 1-5 where 1 is Never Coming Back & 5 Outstanding all thanks to Nick. He was horrible! Guy w/accent better.
