The Terrace has a little bit of a view of Caneel bay. But, the food makes up for that! I loved the lamb and totally would recommend this to anyone you loves meat! This restaurant has tons of it! I recommend this to anyone!

Very romantic restaurant in the heart of St. John. My husband and I went twice on our recent visit to the island. Without reservations this time of year it is hard to get a seat on the porch...so once we ate in the back dining room , full dinner and once we ate at the bar, just appetizers. Both visits... More

Again, limited menu. Therefore I had 2 small plates. Only restaurant I found with scallops and mussels. Both were outstanding in flavor and presentation. Best meal of the week.

We tried this restaurant for the first time on this last trip, and we will be going back for sure! The salad was perfect (Josephine's Greens) and the entrees were beautiful and delicious. Sit outside for an ocean view! Our waitress was knowledgable and helpful. Very nice dining experience.

From the moment we arrived, we felt comfortable and welcomed. We did not have reservations. On vacation, we just do not like to commit. We had a wonderful evening watching the sun set and then strolled into town. The Terrace always looks romantic so we took a chance. The hostess offered us a wonderful high top at the bar overlooking... More

This is my second visit to the Terrace. The first was for a wine dinner which they did a wonderful job on. The second was just last week. We showed up for a delicious oyster happy hour then on to dinner. The drinks are superior to what you will find in most other restaurants. The wine list was excellent as... More
