    Right on boat dock of Lake Mahopac, great music in the back round, relaxing and elegant. Seafood appetizers fresh and delicious, Pork chop special was excellent, broccoli rabe was the best I've had. Lobster ravioli in vodka sauce was perfect. Fast professional service. Our new favorite place to spend date night on a beautiful summer evening. Feels like You are on vacation.

    We arrived at 8:00...just in time to see sunset over Lake Mahopac. We had a reservation for four inside...but luckily someone never arrived for their outdoor booth! We had a delicious fish dinner (scallops and tuna) and scrumptious ice exam sundae and lemon tart for dessert. The oysters appetizer were on small side for $$...

    My last time here (Fathers' Day, 2014) the Niman steak wasn't on the menu it was in March, 2014, my 1st time there. I had another steak, not from Niman, but came close. Victor, the manager, was very apologetic and offered to try and obtain that steak from Niman Ranch the next time I wanted to dine here. I just had to give a week's notice. This happened on July 24th. That morning I received a confirmation call from Victor's partner, Tony. I was warmly received upon my arrival. Scott, my favorite waiter, was as attentive as ever, the shrimp cocktail as big and delicious as ever. Steak was good w/out any fat & cooked just right, as always. Sunset was marvelous seen from the outdoor seating, very relaxing w/ a nice Merlot. Will try other entrée

    Dined on 7/24/2014
    Thought it was a beautiful night for dinner at the lake. The food was fair my filet mignonette was to be medium rare and it was VERY rare. The popcorn was a nice touch, but waiting for service, we could have had 1 or 2 more. Once our order was taken, we had a very long wait. Asked for bread to tide us over. Had good company, but the food did not warrant the prices they charge. The menu is very limited too. Definitely not a place to bring a family for a nice dinner. Mahopac has other restaurants that warrant the prices and the food is exceptional there.

    Always liked the Terrace, but it is new and improved! Good just got better!!! We celebrated my mother in laws 93rd birthday. She loved it, we sat outside and she reminisce of days on the lake as a young girl. The service was awesome everyone made it special for her. The staff brought her cake and sang happy birthday. It was wonderful. They truly made her feel special. The Terrace... Just The Best!!!

    from the moment my husband and i walked in we were simply wowed. the valet was extremely friendly and quick! when we walked in the lovely hostess welcomed us with a warm and genuine smile and we were very happy with the table we were sat at, the only down part was the rain but i cant ask them too control that! our server, blonde gentleman, was very attentive with us. Our drinks arrived promptly, which were absolutely divine! that mason jar one was delish! next-the food...ugh. literally every bite was melting in my mouth. to begin we had the tempura calamari and the PEI mussels & for dinner i had the amish chicken and my hubby had the pork chop. hands down the whole meal was to die for! can not wait too come back! congrats on the new owners!

The food was excellent and our waitress was friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is beautifu. You can't go wrong with this restaurant. We will definitely return soon.

    The food was out of this world...we went on an early Sunday evening and it wasn't too crowded. However, the service and food delivery was very slow. I wasn't planning to spend over two hours on an early dinner. There was just way too much time in-between the popcorn, salads and dinner.

    Service was ok just confused. There was a private party and the kitchen could not handle both the party and the restaurants other guests. When we sat down they told us it would be 20 minutes before they would be able to put our order in. We could have drinks and only appetizers from the raw bar or salad while we wait. Just never heard of a restaurant that can't handle a private party and their guests.

    First time there and will definitely give it a second try since the food was excellent. The bus boy was on his game but definitely not the waitress. Multiple requests for items before finally getting them after waiting a very long time. Maybe she was having a bad day but it was early evening and not busy so this was the only disappointment.

    Dine outside and you can practically dip your hand in lovely Lake Mahopac! But the new owners must get some sun control as it's no fun to have the blazing setting sun interrupt an otherwise sublime setting. The menu has something for everyone, from raw bar staples and fresh salads to mouth watering beef tenderloin with scrumptious lobster mashed potatoes. The tuna (seared rare of course) and the scallops on polenta are also winners. There's also attractive inside seating but the one negative is the smell of popcorn that permeates the air. In a word, Yuck. The one complaint is that service needs to step it up. It took way too long for drinks or to be told that the second bottle of wine was not available.

    The service was awful. We waited for an outside table and when we were seated my back was to the water and the view. What I saw was the wait staff station and people coming and going. It then took an absurdly long time for anyone to offer us a drink, let alone tell us specials or take our order. I finally asked someone if they could take our order and it seemed like no one was really assigned to our table. We received our appetizer after a reasonable amount of time but our main courses took another absurdly amount of time. When the food finally arrived, it was cold. So clearly it had been sitting around for awhile. We decided not to get coffee or dessert as our experience by then was so disappointing, we did not wish to continue it.

    The food and service was excellent. The waiter gave us plenty of time to enjoy the company we were with. He was helpful and accommodated two special requests. The only this that was somewhat of a bother was the setting sun as we had dinner outside on the patio. Maybe a diffuser curtian could be put up to reduce the glare.

    We went there because my wife remembered that the Terrace Club was nice for outside dining. It was that, but we were bowled over by the food. She had a rib eye steak and I had sea scallops. Both were a delight. We went back ten days later with two good friends, and not only was the food just as good for us, they (people who dine out a lot) also extraordinary.

    We enjoy the place, the food is top notch, and the staff attentive. However, when they have outside seating added, especially on a beautiful day and a holiday like Fathers Day, the kitchen is not big enough to handle all the tables, so the service was quite slow. We forgive them, but they really booked more than they could handle.

    Although this time they did not have my favorite steak (Niman Ranch steak) on the menu, they had other cuts from the same California ranch. The fillet mignon was very good, but my taste buds had waited for 3 months to re-savor my favorite steak, so I may be understating how good it really was. Victor, the manager, felt bad for me & said next time to call him 1 week before I want to dine there & he'll make sure to order me "my" steak. Still can't get over the size of their shrimp from the raw bar. Service was awesome, as usual. The cheese cake dessert was delicious, very smooth, reminding me of Junior's Cheese Cake from Brooklyn, NY. Was surprised that they did not offer any soup, not even clam chowder. A great Father's Day celebration.

    Our party of 6 was spoiled by the attentive service from Lori and the amazing food. The filet mignon was cooked to a text-book, perfection of medium rare and the lobster mashed potatoes were a meal in itself with juicy chunks of lobster in every forkful. Our thanks to the talented chef! We learned of the new owners who are embracing organic / local cuisine and it shows in the diverse new menu and fresh raw bar. The raw clams and oysters taste like they were fresh caught that day. Lastly, the wine selections by the glass were plentiful and the pinot noir was an excellent pairing with the steak. Also of note was the apple blossom dessert which was delicious. We all sent back clean plates. Can't wait to go back.

    Surprised our friend for an evening birthday dinner. Made reservations in advance and still waited. After finally being seated, we waited 25 minutes for bread and we were brought 4 pieces of bread for 5 people. We couldn't even ask for more bread because our waiter was MIA. We waited about an hour for our food and the server was apologetic. Great view, but for the price of the food and the poor service, we wouldn't return.

    A very disappointing meal last night. Our "neighborhood gem" has changed hands. We had made reservations for 5 people and requested a window table. It was pouring rain when we arrived, and there were only ten other diners. We were seated at a table for 8, obviously not set for us, and twice asked by servers if more people were coming. Drinks were served, but none of their signature "popcorn" or bread which we finally asked for. The bread (like hot dog rolls) was cold and the butter colder. After a long 40 minutes, our entrees arrived: two pork chops (very good), two tunas (mediocre, not fresh tasting) and a shrimp rigatoni (poor). The server was genial, but overall, the restaurant lacks hospitality and personal attention.

    There is new ownership here and they may need a bit more time to get their act together. The atmosphere, sitting on the lake, can't be beat. Unfortunately, the service was spotty, but the new owner is aware of this and told us he is "working on it." We will be back and hopefully he will be diligent and improve the dining experience.

    My family took me to the Terrace Club to celebrate my birthday and the entire experience was a disaster. We waited an inordinate period of time for everything- from water to bread to our appetizers and then meal. A cheeseburger arrived after an hour wait with no cheese, sent it back and it was raw, sent it back again to cook it as originally requested "medium". Waiting an hour for food at brunch is unacceptable and no information or apology from the wait staff or owner about the delays. Slow service, mediocre food, I would never go back there.
