The small plates were so delicious and the drinks were delicious. Our server was very attentive. The only problem was that we went in the late afternoon and as the sun was setting it blinded us completely. It would have been nice if there was a roll-down shade on the window to prevent this.

This place is a great find. Food is Tapas type fair. Excellent quality and flavor. We surveyed several dishes. Lamb chops were excellent and cooked nice and medium rare, Mojo Shrimp came with an excellent tequila sauce. If you like spicy this is the one for you. Not overly spicy but enough. Also had the charcuterie plate with meat and cheeses, Ahi tuna plate and Lamb sliders. The Seared Ahi was a bit bland with little flavor. It needed salt but was cooked nice and rare like it should be. Overall tapas plates were well executed.

Service was very good. Some of the reviews mentioned that they are known for poor service but our hostes was very attentive even though there was a Bachelorette party going on. The only reason this place isn't 5 stars is that they had the Terrace windows closed due to the heat that day. It was hot inside (AC wasn't very good) and that caused the noise to be unbearable. I was sitting across from my wife and I couldn't carry on a conversation. However, after about 45 minutes they opened the windows to make it an actual "Terrace" and the mood changed immediately. The cool river breeze blew through and the noise level dropped. 5 stars for the river view. Time it so that you dine as the sun sets.

Wine and cocktails top off this great experience. Nice selection.

My father, sister and I hosted my mother's 60th birthday brunch at Terrace at the River Inn, and it was everything we had hoped for and more. We had 25 people for the brunch, which was also a surprise party. The events manager, Trisha, was considerate and organized in making the booking and arranging the menu, even though I was making all the arrangements from out of town (I live in England). I dropped by the week before the party to walk through the venue with Trisha and make notes about how we wanted the room to look. When we arrived an hour early on Sunday morning the linens were already on the table, and by half an hour before the guests were to arrive everything was arranged and perfect. The catering staff Marcell and Alex were both professional and friendly, going out of their way to accommodate every little request before, during, and after the event. They made it such a special day for my mother, and several guests commented on what wonderful a time they had, and the beautiful venue. We had both adults and children in our party, and the venue gave us the perfect flexibility to sure everyone had a good time. My 2 year old niece struck up a special bond with Alex, who treated her to little glasses of juice when she got restless. These little gestures meant so very much to our family and friends.

The room is elegant and stylish, providing an option to open the windows to create a true "terrace" atmosphere if the weather permits. Our event was in late June 2014, and the heat meant we kept all the windows closed, but all our guests still enjoyed the beautiful panoramic view of the Mississippi River and the "m" bridge. Five stars from our family, for this venue and staff! It was a perfect day!

Nice location at the top of the River Inn with views over the Mississippi.We shared some beef sliders,teriyaki chicken skewers and shrimp between four of us.All washed down with some excellent cocktails.
The food was great and the service was excellent,mainly thanks to the attention of our waitress, Odalys,who gave us some good local advice and even impressed us with her geography skills and knowledge of the (soccer)World Cup final of 1966!
