Ordered baked shrimp and sent it back, wasn't fresh-staff handled this very well. What was wonderful was the octopus and carpaccio. Baked lake trout was tasty. Mocktails available and very tasty. Staff helpful and pleasant. Ate 2 meals during my stay. I would go back.

The "terrace" (patio) seating provides a romantic atmosphere but the food tastes like generic italian food. It's a must-try for the patio atmosphere but don't expect much from the food.

We had a reservation for a larger group that was set months in advance. Unfortunately, when we arrived to the restaurant, they did not have record of our reservation. Luckily we kept all our communications between the restaurant via email and was quickly evident that the error was on them. The manager more than made up for the mishap by... More

We have a summer home near New Buffalo. We tried the Terrace Room based on our positive experiences at Bentwood Tavern. There are 6 pasta items on the menu. Three of them are linguine based dishes. 40 minutes after we ordered the waiter informed us they were out of linguine. How? It is half of your pasta menu. They substituted... More

We enjoyed dining here. They had us in and out in under an hour...maybe because we had a baby with us?? Either way, the food and service were great. Very nice setting.

The food is fine, but you're paying for the location. We had a reservation for a Thursday night and learned that outdoor seating is first-come, first-serve. The place seemed quiet, so we had no trouble getting a nice table. You're looking out over a small harbor, so you see lots of boats, but not a ton of water. Don't expect... More

We dined recently with friends from the area and enjoyed the outside dining experience immensely. The dinners were all well prepared and nicely presented, with delicious bread to accompany. The hands down winner for the evening was the pasta with seafood in a tomato vodka sauce. I've never had better: abundant shrimp, scallops, etc.; al dente pasta, fabulous sauce. When... More

it was just ok - food was good, but something was off about the atmosphere. I just didn't like the layout - a couch in the middle of the dining room with people sitting and staring at you to finish - not my idea of romatic dinner.

My wife and I ate at the Terrace Room for dinner during a recent stay in New Buffalo. We found the meal to be pretty good, with the homemade pastas being the true standouts. First, securing a reservation at the Terrace Room is relatively easy since you can book on OpenTable (a rarity for New Buffalo-based restaurants). This is particularly... More
