“The Terrace Restaurant”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Owners chef Erica Minor and husband Robin have transformed an old classic St John Restaurant into an elegant dining experience.
Erica, previously of La Tapa and the Waterfront Bistro brings an extensive background to her restaurant. A very special location for a lovely dinner.

“Don't waste your money”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Ate at The Terrace to celebrate our wedding anniversary while in St. John. Lobster tails were dry, chicken tasted like onion and only onion, side dishes were average, service was so-so, and server was snotty. There are so many other better restaurants in town like the Virgin Fire or Rhumb Lines. It was the worst dinner we had on the Island during our week's stay plus it was a huge rip-off.

“Wonderful. Ate here twice during our trip.”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Great food, great attentive staff, nice atmosphere. Seafood was excellent. Best to make a reservation. Ask for a table overlooking the waterside.

“Not as good as we hoped”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We were anticipating our dinner all day because the menu sounded so interesting. The views were amazing and the drinks were excellent. The food however was not as good as is sounded on the menu. My salad was so-so and my dinner was not that good and was not served hot. My boyfriends salad was good but his dinner was not as yummy as he had hoped. For the price of the meals our expectations were higher.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

The food was just amazing -- we had a late lunch so opted for two appies and a salad to share. At first, we were going to leave, as the server took my fiance's beer order and did not even look to me to get my drink order, until she brought his, very odd.
Otherwise, the food was great (seared foie gras, beet salad, seared scallops with truffle cream).
