Terra in St Helena - anyone been lately? recos?

  • b

Some friends are visiting from out of town this weekend and we have reservations at Terra in St Helena. Just wondering if anyone out there's been recently and if there are any specific dishes or preparations which we should definitely order.

Or if anyone wants to share any recent or not so recent experiences from Terra, that would also be appreciated.

Thanks!

    I'mglad that you will take recommendations from the past because I bet is has been almost 10 years since I was there but I still remember as one of the finest meals I have ever had. The setting is romantic and the food and service were outstanding. One of the dishes we had was a Thai influenced red curry salmon. I later found the recipe in a cooking magazine and and still love it. I am looking forward to trying Ame. Hope your friend have a wonderful time and that it is still a wonderful spot.

    1. I also had one of the best meals of my life at Terra about 10 years ago and went back last year and it was just as I remembered it. Their specialty is the broiled sake marinated black cod and shrimp dumplings in shiso broth. Enjoy!

          Terra is my favorite restaurant in the Napa Valley. I was there two Fridays ago and recommend from the current menu (http://www.terrarestaurant.com/menu.html) the grilled squab on asparagus risotto with roasted garlic and foie gras sauce; the oysters with pork belly, and scallops. If the foie gras stuffed tortelloni in black truffle broth is available as a special appetizer then that is a must order imo.
