Lovely restaurant! Nice location, the food is great, service is amazing. I've been here twice and I've never had any bad experience. The only thing I can say I disliked was the noise but hey, if there's a lot of people it has to be a good restaurant right? ;)

We ate here at 6:30 on a Saturday night. There were only 2 other people in the restaurant, and by the time we left around 8pm there was not another customer to be found. It was a little off-putting to be so deserted. And considering we were virtually the only people in there I was surprised by how slow/inattentive the service was. All that said, the food was delicious and well-prepared. I just hope they can get enough customers to come so they can continue serving dinner!

This was my first visit. I was a bit disappointed because I choose the resturants for me my husband and another couple. We were going to an event near by so I thought this would be a great place to dine. We arrived shortly after 4pm on 8/25/17 there was a pile of trash by the hostes stand we had to step over this to get to the dinning area. Three of us ordered chicken and waffles the waffles were great .we we all felt that the chicken was really dry. My husband ordered the terrace chicken and he said it was good. I was more disappointed because I invited another couple thinking I Made A good choice.

The reservation was held and they had the table for 2 setup and offered us a larger table by the window - very nice. The food was delicious although the service was sparse; our appetizers were not taken away, I had to ask for extra water, and we didn't have bread plates on the table when the bread was delivered which we didn't realize until after the fact and while waiting for the waitress for a few minutes we just grabbed plates from another table. Over the 45-60 minutes we were there the waitress came by 3 times: here's your table, here's your apps, here's your meal. We had to flag her down for the water and the bill. She was friendly but not attentive.

Visited Terrace Café for the first time yesterday. Overall was very pleased with the atmosphere, diverse menu and friendly service. I had the pork BBQ sandwich w/onion rings, and it was very tasty. May try a different sauce next time. The desserts looked tempting as well. There's truly something for everyone here.

Very disappointed​. Order was incorrect. What I received had a very well prepared piece of salmon, but not a Cobb salad that I ordered. Menu had
little creativity.
Our server was very pleasant and attentive.

We had a poor experience. It was Valentines. They were understaffed. Our waitress had 13 tables and she was nice but harried. Our First courses of soup and salad took 30 minutes to come out. The soup was cold. Dinner came out before we finished first course and it was only luke warm. It tasted ok except for the temperature of the food. I have had lunches there that were good, so this was a disappointment.

We were so glad to get a last minute reservation through Open Table on Valentine's Day. We got the special and it was really tasty - steak and crab cakes. It was fun to be given a rose and have champagne to celebrate. It would have been nice to have some bread while waiting for our meal even though we probably didn't "need" it. We did wait an extra long time for our dessert which was not the cake we were expecting but a chocolate mousse dessert that was really good but very rich - a sprig of mint would have been nice with it. All in all a very nice experience at one of my favorite restaurants.

My wife and I had a last minute dinner reservation here for Valentine's Day. The greeters were very nice and even gave my wide a red rose in honor or the holiday. We were seated promptly. The food was delicious and Iris our server was beyond kind and attentive. We will return purely out of her exceptional service.

I used to look forward to interesting & creative meals at Terrace Cafe, but the menu has drastically changed since I last ate there and the fare is much simpler. It's very good but just not that special anymore. There are many breakfast items now available all day and overall prices seemed to be lower, both good things. My egg white vegetable omelet was excellent and my friend enjoyed her burger and fires, but I was expecting a more "foodie" experience.

We went during dinner, not knowing that this is traditionally a brunch / breakfast hot spot. The food was absolutely delicious. Across the group, we ordered a mix of dinner entrees, salads, and breakfast items, and everything was delicious. Would recommend!

(Full review on Yelp, limited in text here). We went for dinner mid-week. It was my first time here, and I found the ambiance cold (literally & figuratively). Waiter and manager were both very friendly. We were pleased to see they now offer breakfast all day long (always a plus when it's fresh and tasty). However, we were sad to see their dinner & lunch menu seemed a bit watered down. This is clearly a great place for breakfast, brunch & lunch - dinner, not so much. I'm told they used to have a delicious pork chop entree - but it's completely gone from the menu and the kitchen (we asked). I ordered the soup of the day (basil tomato) which was great! I got the chicken salad with a "large scoop" of the chicken salad on top. Not a big scoop.

Thought we'd heard about this as a great breakfast place we decided to try it out for dinner. The Fish and Chips was nice variation on the original(which I've had in England). The batter was quite thick but thoroughly cooked and seasoned delicately to ADD to the flavor of the fish not hide it. My only complaint was there were too many chips(French fries) but they were hot and lightly salted. Neither the fish nor the fries were dripping in oil like another local place, which serves them in baskets to let the oil drip onto the plate! Blah! The fillet was very large- at least a half pound- moist and tender. For dessert we split the Lemon Chiffon Cake. Very soft, light and lemony. A great finish to the fish and chips.

Food was a hit with our group of seven. Lighting was harsh (too bright). Waitstaff was excellent. A breakfast-y smell upon walking in was a little off-putting. Fantastic food!

If you like dining at a very quiet restaurant this is the place. Was there at 6 p.m. on a Wednesday and we were the only diners in the place until about 6:30 when one other couple arrived and then about 6:45 a family with children came in.

The food was very good. I have been at the Terrace Cafe for breakfast when a seat is a half hour wait sometimes.

They have a decent wine list and a full service bar.

Made reservations and arrived to find that there were no tables available. They opened up the upstairs for our family to get us seated and made sure that we were taken care of. That level of service is outstanding! I was worried that we would be forgotten since we were the only ones upstairs, but two waiters made sure that everything went smoothly. The food and service were great and the kids loved having the balcony to ourselves for dinner.

Four girlfriends spent a very pleasant evening at Terrace Café. This is a casual , fairly priced restaurant in the Piedmont Row area. It was not busy and the service was quick. The wine list is small, so it led me to believe that this is mainly a breakfast /lunch type of place. Everyone enjoyed their food, especially the side cobb salad with little onion rings on it.

We recently ate here for a quick meeting and loved the experience. The restaurant wasn't too crowded on a Wednesday night around 6pm and we got fantastic service and some of the best food we could. We all had breakfast for dinner - chicken and waffles (superb), omelet (great), shrimp and grits (terrific), and some kid's animal shaped pancakes. All were delicious. We also had the chocolate cake for dessert and it was phenomenal. Limited beer selection, but all local stuff - which was nice. Strongly recommended.

I much prefer the location in Ballantyne than South Park. Ballantyne's location is larger, they stay open later, the food is better and they have more options on the menu

Terrace Cafe is excellent for breakfast or lunch. I highly recommend it. Dinner, on the other hand, is good but not memorable. I will say the Ballantyne location has better ambiance. The South Park restaurant just seemed kind of empty and brightly lit, even on a Friday night--although it was quiet and nice to be able to have a conversation with friends at the table. The food was very good, especially for the price, and the service was excellent. I can't say I was disappointed with any aspect of my experience there, but at the same time I did not leave excited to go back again. It's certainly worth a visit if you haven't yet been, but it's not at the top of my Charlotte restaurant recommendations.

They put a spit on the originals to make it delicious! I had grilled chicken but it was stuffed with cranberry / apple chutney and my vegetarian friend had their veggie plate and loved the pesto quinoa patties. I had a taste and they were delicious!!

We have been wanting to try Terrace Café for a long time and finally got around to it for dinner. For a long time, we were the only ones in the restaurant, and while we were there they only sat 4 other tables. Even with that, the service was pretty slow. We sat for at least 15 minutes before our order was taken. The food was good. I enjoyed their vegetable platter which was different from the standard veggie plate. My husband ordered the lobster bisque and the lobster ravioli, which was pretty much the same dish and in a heavy cream sauce which wasn't his favorite. Overall, the experience was just ok. We do want to give it another try as we've heard great things but just didn't experience it. The biscuits were divine though!

Very enjoyable dinner. We visited on a Wednesday evening so the restaurant was quite. The service was very good and the food delicious. I had the Flounder which was grilled nicely and very moist with a pesto sauce on the plate not over the fish. The Fried Chicken and the Fried Chicken with Bacon Waffles were tried and complimented by our friends. The waiter was knowledgeable about the wine list and his recommendations were helpful. We also had a number of appetizers and all were good with generous portions. We were too full to tried the desserts but they sounded delicious. We will return.
