“Succulent, great daily entrees”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Another great meal here. We looked forward to eating again at this restaurant ever since we made our flight reservations last April. Just as good as last year. Our server, Holly, was just as nice and attentive as last year. Even with the few tables occupied, she gave us plenty of space and didn't hover. The lamb was succulent, the Caribbean lobster tail was a surprise offering for this evening, and I just wish I'd had room for dessert. I'll be saving room for our next meal next week. They're closed Sundays, so plan your vacation carefully. Please note that Trip Advisor lists two restaurants: The Terrace and The Terrace Restaurant. Both places are the same. I can't find on Trip Advisor where to get this corrected.

“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.
