Our group of six had an excellent dinner here. We all enjoyed our food very much. The service was excellent and the chef demonstrated a diverse palate. We sampled a wide variety of entrees and appetizers. We were pleased to be offered a discounted/discontinued wine list. According to the menu we saved $10 on a $55 bottle of wine. Prices... More

Everything we had was fantastic and service was impeccable! Rack of lamb was perfectly cooked with a delectable sauce. Beet salad was tasty! Poached lobster was melt in your mouth. Scallops were cooked perfectly. Just sad we didn't stay for dessert!

We called the restaurant to make Friday night reservations and were told they were doing a seafood wine dinner, five courses and wine pairings, would we be interested? Of course we were! The guests were mainly locals, so it was a fun atmosphere and they made us feel right as home as visitors. The food was great and the wine... More

My wife and I spent our 27th Anniversary in beautiful St. John last week. For our actual Anniversary dinner, we made reservations at The Terrace based on a recommendation from the great people at The Grande Bay. We were not disappointed. The food, drinks, service and atmosphere were great. Even with many restaurants being closed during the off season, there... More

Hubby said the hamburger was one of the best he has EVER had. The lobster tail was perfect as was the location!

We had reservations for dinner at the Terrace last night. We were pleased to find it is one of the few restaurants still open this time of year. We sat right along the rail overlooking the bay for the sunset. The waitress was excellent. Even left me an entire carafe of iced tea so I could refill whenever I liked.... More

We had scallops, foie grois, carribean lobster tail, and a salad along with a nice bottle of wine- the scallops were great with a tasty purée - the foie... More

The food and the service were fantastic, however, several times I saw the hostess (although friendly) tell people without reservations to sit at the bar and essentially wait for a table - when the restaurant was not full at all. Seemed to me like they were being "punished" for not having a reservation - come on, it is the slow... More

My husand, a friend and I went to this restaurant this past week and it was amazing. My friend had escargot and I had oysters rockefeller and we both thought they were delicious. For main courses ... duck, filet mignon and shrimp stuffed with crabmeat. Each one of us raved about our entree and there wasn't a peep from us... More
