Food was excellent. I had the shrimp and grits which were just the right amount of spicy and my wife had the pork tenderloin which was cooked perfectly. wine list is so-so. Service is good. Could use some soft wall lighting instead of the harsh overhead cans.

All around good
Wine list is a bit weak, although they have several by the glass selections. Surf and turf was great, as was my wife's salmon. Friends all basically had the same items and a flat bread app that was just ok. Crab dip app was good. Atmosphere is fine, but Terrace Cafe could use a terrace. It was a perfect night for outdoor dining but its not an option at the South park location. All said, it's a good restaurant, and a good alternative to the louder busier Brio and Brasserie across the plaza.

My husband and I went here for the first time on Saturday. We found this restaurant on Open table and thought we would give it a try for some place different. Upon arriving we were seated immediately and our waiter came directly over to our table to offer us glasses of water. The service was excellent. The food was outstanding. My husband loves crab soup and has gotten it many places. He said this was the best crab soup he had ever had. I got the scallops entree and he got the crab cakes for dinner. Everything was outstanding. We were very pleased and definitely plan to go again. Highly recommend!!

Service was excellent. Enjoyed our meal tremendously. Special occasion and we're social drinkers so sweet works for us. The event would have been topped off if we had a miscato to toast the event. Otherwise, very pleased with the Terrace Cafe.

Queen's Feast dinner
We had been to his restaurant for brunch, lunch and dinner several times. We went during Queen's Feast this time and the menu was fabulous- a number of our favorites were on the special menu. Not only were there three courses; there were 4! A wonderful appetizer to share was included - fried green tomatoes with a war pimento cheese spread. It was to die for! Our server was helpful and knowledgeable and the meal was delicious. We event took our desserts home because we were too full to enjoy them our meal. We would definitely recommend Terrace Café for food and for value.

We came here for restaurant week and I am SO glad. Their chicken and waffles with the watermelon salad was amazing! I plan to make it out here for brunch sometime in the near future.

We went for Restaurant Week and try to go to a new place every time and we were so glad that we picked Terrace Cafe. The fried green tomatoes and warm pimento cheese was to die for. Dinner was wonderful and service was great.

I visited Terrace Cafe for dinner for the first time during Charlotte Restaurant Week and I loved it! Service was great and we all enjoyed our selections. I will definitely return!

Superb Queen's Feast Selections
The selections offered something to please everyone's palate in our large party starting with an appetizer for the table - a generous helping of quintessential Southern fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese spread along with mini-biscuits - in addition to the three course meal. The food was scrumptious and the service impeccable, as always. Although we dined at several restaurants during Queen's Feast, Terrace Cafe was the BEST! We love the personal service at this lovely restaurant, it's always perfect for Sunday brunches plus romantic or family dinners out. The food is always fresh, plentiful and perfectly prepared. Several family members and friends, along with the both of us, deem it our favorite Charlotte restaurant.

It was a comfortable setting
It was a comfortable setting and the food was wonderful. A/C was set to low and we froze but that was the only complaint. attentive staff, great food and great conversation.

The food is always special,
The food is always special, not a lot of choices but all appealing in some way. Something in every dish will be prepared with a unique twist. They also have drink specials every night. We happened to go on a Wednesday when there was half price bottles of wine, which is always good. Our server was very friendly and attentive, but not overly so. She was always there when we needed something. This is a super place to go when you want a good meal, don't want to be rushed and don't want to put up with a lot of noise.

Quiet Saturday night
The food and service were excellent. Loved the crab cakes and arugula salad.

Delicious food, great service
This restaurant is tucked away and has no outdoor seating, so other places nearby get more business, but it is so worth a try! The food is Southern nouvelle and the Friday $5 wine by the glass is a great deal. We had the flounder and the scallops with risotto and both were absolutely delicious. We highly recommend this place and we will be back.

Southpark Dining at Terrace Cafe
Our server Whitney was excellent ... friendly, efficient and professional. The arugula/spinach salad was excellent; both my wife and I had one. The biscuits with jalapeno jelly were, as always, delicious. I had the maple glazed salmon with asparagus and carrots, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the scallops and fried calamari with risotto.

Great New Favorite Restaurant
Made a same day reservation for two and had an awesome dining experience! Our server was excellent and had a good working knowledge of the daily specials and menu items. The food was delicious with generous portions. The salmon was superb, and the chicken with mashed potatoes made a delicious comfort food meal....just what I needed! The triple chocolate cake was one of the best chocolate desserts I have had in Charlotte. Definitely a new favorite restaurant for us!

I'm in love...
... I don't know if it was the wine or what, but I loved everything I consumed!! We ordered the calamari and crab dip and I was in heaven. I ordered the crab soup and bourbon salmon and i couldn't stop eating. Everything was soooo delicious!! So much that I've made another reservation in a week for when my mom is visiting from California!! YUMMMM!

Love this place!
I love everything about this restaurant...the ambience, the food (never disappointed - always with a unique flavorful twist), the unique silverware and water glasses...the biscuits w/spicy jelly, the breakfast and brunch offerings, the special coffees and teas, the desserts! I love the details such as the scripture at the hostess stand and even the mints by the door :)
Also, Terrace Café coupons are one of the reasons I buy the Charlotte Citypass book!

Comfort food with a twist
Piedmont Row has a couple of big expensive restaurants. ....and then it has a couple of genuine treasures. On notable establishment, The Terrace, always served breakfast and lunch but now serves dinner as well. Of course, with contemporary Southern menus tend to bleed over into each other. My wife clamed the shrimp and grits were the best she ever had (she has had a lot). The Blue Crab Bisque was thick enough to be a meal unto itself, and there was no scrimping on the crab meat. The Sweet Potato Bisque was a surprise, hearty enough for a meal and sweet enough for a dessert. I noticed a full coffee bar and interesting dessert menu, but was to full to try. Prices are great!

I brought my friend who was visiting from out of town to Terrace Cafe. Terrace Cafe had been on my list of places that I had wanted to try since I moved here last year. We were impressed with the drink menu, as well as the Southern classics on the food menu. The shrimp and grits were amazing!

The atmosphere does not fit the food. Phenomenal food choices and to die for chicken and waffles, they give a twist to traditional southern cuisine, but instead of a "cafe" feel its more of a cafeteria feel. Based on location you would think to dress to impress but jeans are more the feel. Other than that, the food is what was important and it lives upto its ratings.

Great food and wine
The meal was excellent and the half price on wine was even better!
