Today we arrived and were not served until Henry came around... he made our drinks which were amazing... passion fruit Mojito and coconut Mojito... he was not in charge of the food,... More

Extremely happy with their menu selection and our server was great! (One of the hostess needs to improve her customer service... ) The decor through out the restaurant was on point. My only concern was location and parking. We parked at CVS pharmacy which is across the street from the restaurant. Over all a very good experience!

The restaurant is large and is located on the Golden Mile in Philadelphia (the Latino section). the neighborhood seems a little decrepit but there is parking close by. There is also a nightclub with salsa dancing. If you want a quiet and romantic restaurant this is not for you and I would recommend a week night as a opposed to... More

Trying different ethnic food is something I love, so when I entered Tierra Colombiana I had already prepared for my taste buds to be enlightened with a good quality Colombian dish and I must say they did not disappoint. Each dish was authentic to their name and the atmosphere was good quality dining! My husband and I will definitely return... More

I've been coming to Tierra colombiana for the past 12 years, with family and friends, and for business. Friday and Saturday nights are crowded (and very... More

Tierra Colombiana is a staple in the community as a meeting place to have dinner,celebrate or just have a drink. I eat dinner here every Thurday and each and every time the food is excellent. The staff is very sweet and inviting. Great for large groups or solo dinners like I do.

I live not to far and this is a local staple for me. The food is amazing. I'm always trying new things on the menu. Today I had lived with onions. Sounds gross but, it taste so good. If you want real Latin food you gotta come here. I always say the best food is not in posh neighborhoods but,... More
