This is a lovely restaurant, however we were unprepared for the high prices. Granted everything on the island is expensive, but we felt this was a bit too much. The food was good, and the view lovely, but we were disappointed that our bill was close to $100 per person, and I was the only one drinking (2 glasses of... More

We normally save the last night of our family's vacations for at the "big dinner out." The Terrace fit the bill and was not disappointing. Lovely view. Delicious dinner for all of us. Pricey, but it the view was fabulous, service great, and meal superb.

Our dinner with friends at The Terrace was fabulous. Every bite from appetizer to dessert was delicious and service was flawless. Don't miss the butter poached lobster or the Oysters Rockefeller.

Had a party of eight. We visited the Terrace tonight for the first time. The main reason we went is because my son has been craving raw oysters. The Terrace advertises raw oysters. What they don't tell you is that you can only get raw oysters when sitting at the bar. Makes no sense to me but oh well. They... More
