We have been coming to St. John every year since 2003 besides last year. Usually when we go this restaurant is closed for the slow season. This time we lucked out and they were open. We reserved a table out on the terrace and it was beautiful. The views of Cruz Bay were amazing.

For appetizers I had the oysters rockefeller and my husband had the escargot. We didn't wait long for our appetizers and they were delicious. I decided to have the stuffed prawns served with a creamy risotto and my husband choose their signature mac and cheese with truffle oil and mushrooms. I tried some of it and it was decadent and delicious. Everything we had was spot on and the service was very efficient. We were so glad that we tried this restaurant. I only wish we tried it sooner. If the Terrace is open when you are in St. John definitely give it a try.

We loved everything about our dining experience at Terrace Restaurant! Our waitress was very friendly and helpful! The drinks were delicious, the bread and seasoned butter - amazing! And our entrees were fantastic! A bit pricier than the other restaurants but given the quality, it felt worth it!

Party of 3, returned after bad experience a couple of years ago, since there was less of a selection pre-season. Anyways we all ordered the $45 Filet Mignon, was excellent. The two women in my party could not finish a good portion of the steak. The waitress took the steak and accompanying sauce and returned the steak in aluminum foil. YES, aluminum foil. Don't know who you could ruin a great meal, but that did!
Hope the owner reads this as it was so uncooth.

We went to The Terrace for dinner recently and the same day when they reopened.
The view of Cruz Bay is good and the food is excellent. But that excellence comes with a price. For example, the scallops appetizer only had two scallops but the price was $18 ($9 for one scallop!). The rest of the meal was excellent as well but I do believe that they may be a little over priced.

We were heartbroken when we heard that Asolare was destroyed in the hurricane, but found The Terrace to be a good alternative. The seafood dishes were creative and the atmosphere was lovely - just far enough from the busy-ness of the town. The staff was helpful and professional. We are looking forward to our next visit.
