    Wow - talk about a hidden gem! I booked this restaurant for a business dinner and had never been there before. I was a bit worried using a restaurant that I had never been to before, but it all ended well. The Terrace Grill was excellent: service, food, and ambiance. Will definitely book Terrace Grill again the next time I'm in Lakeland.

    We had a lovely, mellow celebration for our 34th Anniversary at Terrace Grille. The hostess was friendly and welcoming. Our waitress, Kaitlyn, was very pleasant and extremely attentive: outstanding service! Delicious food: shrimp cocktails, 1/2 wedge salads, pork tenderloin, and salmon. We received 2 complimentary glasses of champagne and a comp key lime cheesecake to share. Our cocktails from the bar were perfect. To top our evening off, there was incredible Tony-Bennett-style music! The two gentlemen-musicians were talented and definitely set the mood for the restaurant's atmosphere! We will most certainly be returning in the future!

    On our 50th wedding anniversary we were seated within 3 feet of the main entrance, within 15 feet of the largest loudest group in the building, and within 40 feet of a jazz band. I am told the Lakeland Terrace is under new ownership since we last visited a few years ago. Most unfortunate.

    First time visiting the Terrace Grill for brunch. The restaurant is located in a very elegant historic hotel and the setting is more upscale than anything we have found in Lakeland. My wife and I met our daughter there and Lawrence was very attentive and suggested several dishes. The flash fried Brussel Sprout appetizer was excellent and I strongly suggest the open face Crab Cake sandwich. My wife really enjoyed the Lemon Ricotta pancakes. All in all a very nice experience.

    Nice to come back and enjoy a quiet dinner in the pleasant atmosphere of the restored Terrace. We left after enjoying a deliciously spicy Asian chicken thighs and red snapper on top of a Caesar salad. They quickly corrected the filthy menu given to us upon arrival but could not fix the chewy bread crumbs on the Caesar salad. With so many other choices out there, it will likely be a long time before we return,.

    Unfortunately the service was very poor for them to not be busy. Our table along with the other tables had to keep asking for service. The menus are very limited compared to before but that could be in line with other business these days. We will have to pass on a return visit.

    No tablecloth. A single fork and knife rolled in napkin. Identical glasses for red and white wine. Could not be classified as even on the low end of fine dining. Lovely room, and reasonably good food, but everything else was lacking.

    My wife and I dined here for the second time since they hired a new chef and launched a better menu. The menu still needs a little more variety, but is a big improvement over the previous one. The service is improved with an obvious focus on professionalism and attentiveness. We both got the Pork Shank and we were pleased with the dish. The house salad was excellent and the most positive of the menu. The wine list is better, but seems to constantly be under revision with several choices usually not available. The Terrace has come a long way from a year ago, but needs a few tweaks to really be considered one of the premium dining choices in Lakeland

    Terrace GrilleResponded on June 17, 2022We appreciate your feedback on your most recent trip to The Terrace Grille. We will take in to account the variety of availability on our extensive wine list and modify as needed. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we can better improve for your next dining experience with us.

    Our visit was the worst I had ever experienced before when dining at the Terrace. It was no busier than any of the other times we have been before and there were many open tables. We waited for over an hour for our food which was disappointing and unacceptable for the quality of the restaurant. Very discouraged to go back after that experience.

    We were celebrating our sons graduation and when we were seated right by the piano player, we had to wait 15 mins before I finally got up and told the hostess that we had not been waited on. The waitress was nice when she finally came. The food was just ok. It was very disappointing to pay $40 for the scallop dinner and get 3 scallops on the plate. The potatoes were cold and my fish was supposed to be blacked and wasn’t. We hadn’t been in a while and we’re not pleased with the overall experience of the food. Actually the food was subpar at best. I’m sorry but I have to be truthful:(

    Went for lunch. Was excited to see some new things on the menu. Even though they were not crowded, our server was very slow and wanted to chat for too often. We still had to wait for both drinks we each had. The fried goat cheese was ok, but the sauce was too sweet. The panzanella was essentially a bowl of croutons with a little asparagus, soggy mushrooms and too many pine nuts. Not much of a dressing. Also had the open face crab cake blt. Crab was very mushy, too much dressing and really didn't taste like much. Lunch was definitely not up to the old standards and we will likely not go back.
