Overall service was below expectations and below average especially for the restaurant of that caliber. Took too long to get food. Had to remind twice to bring bread. Silverware missing for 1 guest. Reservation made with a note about birthday celebration- the waiter did not even acknowledge nor did anything special. Ordered scallops, salmon and snapper- just ok. Considering the price of $40+ per dish, we were not pleased. Disappointed and would not recommend others other than for the location and the ambiance.

The Gingerbread Express Elevator took us directly to the entrance to the restaurant. If you're in town, you MUST take a ride in the Gingerbread Express. Words cannot describe the heavenly aroma of gingerbread in the elevator. The night only got better after we were greeted and seated along the windows with a fabulous view overlooking the river and LOOP area. The wine selection was top notch and all of our dishes were delicious. This was the perfect way to end our brief trip to Chicago. We will be back for brunch next time we're in town.

Terrace 16 is a place where we celebrate many occasions. We love the service and we love the quality of food. However, when I brought my family to celebrate his engagement, it was an embarrassment. It was Sunday afternoon close to 3pm- we asked if we can order something besides breakfast menu, the server simply said no and walked away. We ordered 4 drinks but wanted some bar bites other food but he would just walk away and never checked back on us. Plus, I never received a check with a gratuity already included before. It was a new trend when we had only 4 of us. He added himself more than $20 for gratuity when he never bothered to check on us after he simply said we can order anything else.
It was a huge disappointment and I am not sure if we would return

Place was nice, drinks were good, service was good, however the entrees were not great. Steaks had no flavor at all and for $75 don’t think it was really worth it. It was super bland and didn’t like that my steak was resting on top of mashed potatoes and was covered with all the sides. Overall the place and experience was nice, but wouldn’t pay $75 again for a bland steak again.

We had a chance to peek at the lovely terrace views, although it was freezing being Thanksgiving weekend, so it was a short sight. would definitely recommend a dinner here.

We were seated at the back of the restaurant. With a reservation I was expected a nicer seat. After being seated it took 20 mins to just receive water at our table. We had gone going with intentions of having their special menu for the night at which that was completely sold out but so was their entire menu. I had to choose three times my meal at which I finally said well can you tell me what you do have on your menu. I was fully disappointed.

Immediately placed dinner order and after another 45 minutes of waiting on dinner we decided to leave.
