I decided to try Terra since it was in my entertainment book for a discount. As soon as we arrived at the restaurant, the host was very rude and obnoxious. Second, the food was not impressive and it was rather salty. Third, since I used my entertainment coupon, they attached an 18% gratuity charge to the bill, which I told them, defeated the purpose of the card in the first place.

Overall, this place was a complete waste of money and my guest and I were extremely uncomfortable with the bad service and the host walking around and slamming the silverware on the table. Please take my advice and do not go to this restaurant even if you have an entertainment coupon... the food is mediocre and I'm sure you would want to spend a "comfortable" evening out at a friendlier restaurant.

After reading other positive reviews of this restaurant, we decided to try it. We were looking for somewhere with good food, a nice atmosphere, and a decent wine list...somewhere we could have a romantic date to decompress.
Well, we were disappointed. I ordered the rotisserie chicken for my entree and it was the driest chicken I've ever eaten. And that's saying something. Rotisserie chicken from any grocery store is better. My fiance's pasta was OK, but certainly nothing special.
That said, the wine list was impressive and full of nice choices. It would be tempting if there were anything else off the menu I wanted to try to go with the wines!
Overall, the best thing about the meal was that we used our Entertainment card for half off.
I would not recommend this restaurant.

Pros: Nice wine list, Easy to park

Cons: Overpriced, Food badly prepared

Terra is a so-so restaurant with really bad service. A lot of Albuquerque restaurants have problems of disorganization, ill-informed waitstaff and general slowness, but at Terra, staff and management are indifferent and rude. The food wouldn't be worth the price even with good service. With the existing terrible service, it's a "must miss".

Albuquerque fine dining restaurants are few but a growing trend. For Terra American Bistro, the food tastes good, but so is the food at ALOT of Albuquerque restaurants where you pay signifigantly less.

If you are looking for somewhere special to go, keep looking, the lack of customer service here while ruin your occasion. This restaurant has a lot of work to do to measure up with Albuquerque's finest dining experiences.

Chef Peter Lukes did what a lot of native New Mexicans do upon reaching adulthood---he left for the coast, then he came home. After working in fine restaurants in San Francisco, Lukes decided to return to Albuquerque and open a restaurant…
