“Great place for a romantic dinner”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

Went out to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and got the tasting menu. From the appetizer to the dessert, the food and service was exceptional.

“Fresh and delicious!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

Food was amazingly fresh. Supposedly the tuna i ate was caught at 2 am that day and I believe it. A wonderful dish, nothing like tune ive ever had before. Wife had the scallops and they were amazing. The service was good, but we waited 30 minutes + to get our entrees (after our appetizers). It was said the chef wasnt happy with the scallops and had to remake them. Even still, it was quite a long wait without any real update.

Overall, it was worth it and I would reommend.

“Portions aren't huge, but food is good.”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

If your idea of a great dinner is loading up on portions, Terrapin is not your kind of place. If, however, you are a foodie and not particularly put off by eclectic combinations, give it a try. We had the tasting meal, so portions were smaller than usual, but the tastes were so different and there were so many courses, I didn't miss the huge helpings I get at other restaurants. If the Bahamian rum cake is on the menu, order it.

Reviewed August 4, 2012 via mobile

Unique combinations. Good service. Expensive. Portions in tasting menu are quite small. Bustling atmosphere.
