“Loved This Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The food, the service, the view...all were the perfect setting for our last evening in Paradise. We loved our entree selections and found them created and sized just right. We arrived without reservations but were accommodated with no wait. Would suggest that reservations be made during busier seasons.

“Excellent food, great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Visited The Terrace end of July. Probably the best dinner in St John. Oysters, scallops, lobster, everything we had was awesome.
Recommend going to St John June/July (slow season) but not in August-Oct as the island practically shuts down. Many restaurants are closed. Very friendly and helpful staff. Experience was a pleasure.

“Great meal but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Food was very good and the service was great. Prices were a bit excessive even on the island. Over all it was a great deal but tempered by the very high prices $40-$50 per entree.

“GREAT TERRACE IN CRUZ BAY”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

The location is excellent next to the Beac Bar and great view of the harbuor. The food is overall ok. We loved the Colorado lamb chops. The tuna steak was served with pesto and did not resonate as good. The service is way too fast and it's overall too pricy for what you get. We were lucky to spend the evening while in the beach bar they were playing some excellent live music. Overall ok but not a thoughtful come back.

“So Glad it's Back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

We always enjoyed the Stone Terrace, but then it closed and was replaced by a Mexican place, which may have been good but I don't go to St. John for Mexican food. We visited the Terrace last week and were delighted. The food was excellent and service was superb. We were happy to recognize some of the servers from other restaurants we had visited in the past. The setting is beautiful. I hope they expand the menu a bit; my wife had a steak which was excellent (I know I keep using that word) and I had the roast chicken, which is one of my favorite meals but not one I see on St. John very often. It was one of the best I ever had, very meaty and delicious. And they deboned the breast portion. Looking forward to going back next year!
