    The food is excellent. The specials here are always unique and the presentation is beautiful. It is pricy but the portions are good size. The service was friendly, attentive and professional. Ambiance is OK but it's not a romantic spot in my opinion.

    The waiter over 40, ignored my wife when he first approached the table deferring to me. Maybe its because he's old fashioned or misogynistic not sure. But did it to both my wife and the other couple we were with more than once. It ruined an otherwise great food experience. We can't say enough about the food. Being trained in culinary arts myself the bar is a little higher when I eat out. The the value is on par with a great food experience. The service dampened the overall experience. It's unlikely we'll eat there again, because of that experience with the our waiter.

    In general, we were disappointed. Waiter was over-bearing, overtly pushed expensive wines (not a classy move), food was presented exceptionally but didn't live up to the presentation. Food was good but not great. Was also surprisingly noisy, we had difficulty hearing each other and noticed the same with tables near us. We won't return.

    I believe that if you and your partner choose to dine here, you won't be disappointed in the least. We both found the ambiance, food and attention to detail by the staff to be excellent. from the wine suggestions to the enticing entrees, we are already making plans to return as it was a delightful experience. It's now on our favorites list!!!!

    One of Ridgefield’s finest restaurants! It is relaxed and casually elegant, with great outdoor seating. The waitstaff is mature, expert, and polished. Dinner for me was watermelon gazpacho and handmade pasta with lobster, huge shrimp, and asparagus in a clear brandy sauce. My partner had the same entree but started with lobster bisque. For dessert we shared a dark chocolate crème brûlée drizzled with caramel and kahlua and topped with whipped cream and a liqueur cherry, with chocolate gelato on the side. With espresso came chocolate biscotti and a sort of chocolate-cello. It was incredible!

    We recently visited Terra Sole Ristorante and the experience left us thoroughly impressed. From the moment we walked in, the ambiance was welcoming and sophisticated. However, the true highlight of the evening was the outdoor seating area, which was beautifully decorated with twinkling lights and lush greenery. To start the meal, we ordered the burrata caprese, which was a symphony of flavors and textures. The creamy burrata paired perfectly with the sweet tomatoes and tangy balsamic glaze, making for a refreshing and light starter. We also dined on the veal meatballs; a delicious and sophisticated twist on the classic meatball. The texture of the meat is tender and juicy, and the flavor is delicate and slightly sweet. For the main course, my daughter had the bone in filet mignon, which was cooked to perfection and absolutely mouth watering. The accompanying sides were equally impressive, with the lobster mac and cheese cake and vegetables being standouts. The Kobe burger was also a hit at our table, with its juicy patty and perfectly toasted bun. And the pasta bolognese, a classic Italian dish, was executed flawlessly and had just the right balance of meat and sauce. Throughout the evening, the service was impeccable, with our waiter providing attentive and knowledgeable recommendations. Overall, we highly recommend Terra Sole to anyone local to Ridgefield and it’s neighboring towns, and is worth the drive if you live in Westchester County. From the delicious food to the stunning outdoor ambiance, this establishment is truly a gem.

    The food was fine but very overpriced. Look CAREFULLY at your bill. They tried to charge us for items we didn’t order. Also, they don’t put any prices on the specials menu and several appetizers were over $100. When we complained about not being told the manager had an attitude. We won’t be dining there again!

    There is a new look here with the interior completely redesigned as well as the exterior porch dining. There is now a sushi chef as well. The menu includes the Italian specialties for which TerraSole is well known, but also stretches out creatively. Service, as always, is excellent. Always an outstanding restaurant, but worth a visit to see it in a new light.

    A friend and I went to dinner at TerraSole in Ridgefield before the Ann's Place Fundraiser. We were not familiar with the restaurants in the area. The website looked good and was it ever...It was FANTASTIC! Truly a wonderful experience in every aspect. We are each eager to return and have been telling others. From the moment we arrived we were greeted, seated (given choices) and waited on by a lovely, very helpful and enthusiastic waitress who was terrific. All of that was wonderful but the food itself was out of this world...delicious! We cleaned our plates and even had to have a dessert (although on diets and agreed we wouldn't) because of the food quality. It was an exceptional dining experience including the unusual after dinner mint on the way out. Writing this review is making me hungry thinking of their extraordinary food and the overall lovely experience. Thank you.

    We are regulars. The octopus starter was really over the top. The pachieri fabulous. My son had the sea bass,. Pietro found us a bottle of off the menu Tuscan red — amazing. We have been going since it was one room and a patio. Now there is a loyal following. We feel like family and treat the team that way. Perhaps not for the casual diner looking for fast and frugal. But if you want a great place, with great food, where you become part of the fabric of the experience, this is a great place.

    I’m not a huge “Review” person, but this restaurant was so amazing that I had to let everyone know! The ambiance was perfect! You could either listen to fun/upbeat music in the Bar Area or more Classical in the Dining Room. The food was amazing! It was like dining right in Italy! Not to mention the options; my husband loves seafood and I’m more of a meat and chicken person! We could pick from anything. I can’t forget about the service; which was perfect. It was like being in a Forbes or Michelin Star Restaurant. The server Anthony was present the whole time, checking on us! And was always “around” if we needed. Also the drinks were outstanding! I have to say of all the restaurants I have been in NYC! This restaurant blows them away! Fun cocktails that were consistently PERFECT! Hands down one of the Best Restaurants I have been in a long time! I honestly have nothing bad to say! It’s worth the trip and if you haven’t been! Defiantly go, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

    Non-meat eaters be aware. Heavy meat menu. The bread plate came with focaccia bread and rolls. When we bit into the rolls they were filled with a tomato sauce with meat. Unexpected. Maybe they should let you know that the bread plate would have meat in it? Don't get me wrong the food was good and the service was excellent. If you are a vegan or don't eat meat your options are limited.

    I rarely write reviews but needed to this time because it was a disturbing experience and a surprise for such a highly rated restaurant. Despite having a reservation we were seated at the very back of the tented area — so tight it was hard to get in or out. We waited 30+ minutes to get our drinks, two of which were awful (Cosmos that were all grapefruit juice). We had to go find the waiter to complain because he was so busy he hadn’t come back to check. We then waited a long time for our appetizers and another 30+ minutes to get our entrees. Manager came by to say we were being unreasonable that it’s normal to wait in a “fine dining” restaurant— instead of apologizing, and was very condescending toward us. When our food finally came it was excellent and our waiter was very apologetic and offered a dessert on the house. I don’t believe this experience was his fault — it was extremely crowded even for a Saturday night — but perhaps they should take fewer reservations if they don’t have the help. And instead of condescending toward us the manager should just have apologized for the long wait and wrong drinks. For the prices they charge, the whole experience should have been better. I have family members who work in the hospitality business and I am sympathetic to the many issues they are facing since the pandemic. However a “fine dining” experience should strive to be better overall.

    Terra Sole is an odd mix of truly superior food (and prices), coupled with spotty service. I ordered the “Change Your Life Roll”, which is the most amazing sushi I’ve ever had. Dinner for 2 (no appetizers, minimal alcohol & a shared dessert was $315, which seems ridiculous. When dessert was delivered, 1 of 2 coffees didn’t appear & it took quite a long time to get someone’s attention. Similarly, paying the check was another long delay. The food was so amazing that I wouldn’t mind the prices of the service was even average.

    TerraSole was my favorite restaurant in CT. But our last experience Christmas Eve changed that. The food was excellent as always, but we were seated in an outdoor tent when the outdoor temperature was below 10 degrees. We were given the worst seat in the tent, in a corner, with cold air coming in in two sides. I asked to have an indoor table, and was told none were available, even though I made a reservation a month prior. I then ask to have a table in the inner portion of the tent away from the edge, closer to a propane heater, which was open, and they told me it was reserved. It sat empty the entire time we were there. Needless to say, I really regret spending that much money for that dining experience.
