We made a reservation and still had to wait for 30 min. After being seated we still had to wait for a while. We didn’t know who our server was till we asked someone. I think the restaurant over booked people for Easter.
Also, the food was not that great for it’s price.

I had high hopes for this place due to the beautiful structure and reputation. However, the food was pretty bland and did not live up to its standards at all. For the price, you expect the best service and food but that was unfortunately not the case. The $18 drink glasses came sticky and my French 75 was not very cold. The chicken tasted like it was from a high school cafeteria. Me and a couple friends who were with me were all unsatisfied with the whole experience. The only good thing was the view and the hostess.

Service was awful, the table was not ready when check in and I was told to wait and they will let me know, after 20 mint I had to check again and they had like 3 tables ready. The waitress took forever to take the order and disappeared several times. The food was highly overpriced, extremely expensive to eat the same food you can have at home, it was nothing special about it, the burrata was just the two or three slices of bread with a regular prosciutto probably for the supermarket and regular burrata with no other ads or specials flavors to make it a 20 something dollar plate, also the filet mignon and the burger were average and we ended paying almost 300 dollar. Really disappointed, I would not visit it again. The only positive thing was the view

Food was great. Service and bill left something to be desired. Service - was slow and notes were not taken/asked for while taking order. Menu item that requires clarity on choice of meats and spreads was not clarified and order did not come out with full variety of foods listed. Bill - 20% gratuity was automatically billed (for a party of two?!) and bill initially included a separate charge for something that was part of the entree ordered and was to be included in entree pricing.

Will visit again, but hopeful better service is experienced next time (and we’re made aware of automatic gratuity for a party of two).

We had planned for a very special evening and of all of the restaurants to choose from in the city we chose Terrace 16. We were disappointed by the Seafood platter as the lobster was very small almost non existent and for the price ($120) it should have been more food. Also our waitress was not very attentive and seemed a little clueless. We had to ask other wait staff to help at times as our sever was not around. Will probably not be back.

I understand the struggles of operating a business during CoVid.
We made our reservation a week in advance. The table was not ready.
No problem. We'll order a drink at the bar. Not allowed. The 4 seats were occupied.
No problem. I'll take the drinks outside on the patio. Not allowed.
Is this a state law. No, it's our policy.
We waited outside, sans the drink. Table was ready 20 minutes later.
There were only 5 entrées on the menu. 2 steaks, a fish, chicken and pasta. All pretty generic. Nothing like the photos on the website.
We ordered 2 steak. Can we add lobster? Sure $80. Ok we'll splurge. Out came a 1 lb lobster tail and 2 claws. For $80 ouch.
All and all. We were underwhelmed.

We had a reservation for 6:30pm and when we arrived we were told there wasn’t a table available and they weren’t sure how long we would be waiting. Nonetheless, we were seated about 30 minutes later and enjoyed a great dinner with great drinks and a beautiful view.

Great location. We asked to go out on the terrace but it was closed. The otherwise very friendly manager volunteered to arrange for us to visit another terrace nearby belonging to another hotel. Nice touch. The mint julep was great. The cheese platter not what you get in a Paris restaurant though. Still generally a good value and taste proposition for dining out in America. We will return in April for that terrace! Au revoir!

Server wasn’t very attentive and I ordered a cold brew coffee once he brought it I asked for creamer and sugar never brought it didn’t even drink the coffee and was still charged on my bill. Had us tucked back in the corner. The girl who we tried to find our reservations with she was very rude because we were unsure what name we made it under as our group changed a few times. Service was just lacking I’ve been to the terrace 16 last summer and it was amazing now I am just highly disappointed spent $150 on a meal I would’ve rather ate somewhere else.

If you plan on a dinner- it will be a waste of time and money. I ordered a chicken Caesar salad- it was the worst I’ve ever eaten. Salmon entree looked like a radish soup, though we didn’t get a spoon for it. The place wasn’t clean, having drink marks on table at the entrance. The bathroom looked as it hasn’t been cleaned as well, trash bins full of garbage. Overall- we had great expectations and got highly disappointed. Food overpriced for the quality and service provided. Will go there only for rooftop drinks maybe.
