Our first dinner in St John was at The Terrace Restaurant and it was better than expected considering we were walk-ups and did not have reservations (suggested). Our meals consisted of the Sauteed Mahi Mahi and the Filet Mignon. They were both excellent but I favor the filet over the fish which was a little overcooked and dry but still... More

What a wonderful dining experience! My spouse, daughter, and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our meal. The blue point oysters in the half shell, cream of garlic soup, and beet salad offered an excellent window into what was to come. For the main course, we enjoyed the filet au poivre with its peppercorn crust, Brussels sprouts, roasted garlic potato... More

We were looking for a restaurant with fresh fish...swordfish or salmon. The nightly special was fresh caught swordfish caught the same day we were having dinner. Needless to say it was excellent. Thick cut and grilled through, not raw in the middle, just the way I had ordered it. Price was $34....main courses are $32 to $38 which is standard... More

Everyone at the Terrace Restaurant was very friendly. The food was very good but just a touch bland. I had three appetizers for dinner. I didn't like the watermelon gazpacho, but thats just me.

Three of us had outstanding appetizers, salad and entrees. Camembert beignets and scallops so well cooked and dressed, the salads are local greens and so fresh! Pure delight to have seared local tuna with homemade pasta puffs, daughter's lobster Mac and cheese was the best (she would know), and steak was divine. Great wine and bar menu. Service was superb,... More

The absolute best meal on St John. Lobster tails I will dream about until next year. Great staff and bartenders. Excellent cocktails. Great view overlooking Cruz Bay. Love it.

We lucked out with a corner table at sunset. Add outstanding food and very attentive service and we had an extraordinary evening. We are annual visitors to St.John and have a new "must" dining experience. We will go again before we go back home.

Overall, we had a great dining experience at The Terrace. Our waitress was just attentive enough. Her wine recommendation was just as she described, light with fruity tones. We were seated on the rail with an amazing view of the harbor. The tomato tart, escargot, chilled lobster and arugula salad, and French onion soup were well prepared and plated nicely.... More
