The Terrace Restaurant is a casual, all-day eatery inspired by the French brasseries and American chophouses chef & restaurateur John Fraser worked at early in his career. The hearty menu includes homemade pastas, steaks and chops as well as a variety of vegetable dishes, always a signature of Fraser’s restaurants.

Kindly note that our restaurant is located on the 9th floor of Times Square Edition Hotel (47th St and 7th Avenue). Due to high volume of requests for outdoor/garden seating, such requests are not guaranteed but are taken as requests. For more information, our Reservations Team can be reached at 212-261-5400 or reservations@jfrestaurants.com. We look forward to welcoming you!

Wonderful room esp when you cans it outside. Good food but limited menu (can’t get an omelette for brunch). Servers were delightful but incredibly slow. It took 10 minutes after getting coffee to get milk, for example. I had to go up and remind them.

Service was exceptional. Our waitress Dorian was warm and professional, just excellent! It was a beautiful night, we sat in outdoor garden area and were not rushed at all. The ambiance is beautiful, almost tropical with the garden setting. You forget that you’re in the middle of Times Square. Highly recommended.

We were initially seated on the terrace but it began to sprinkle. Manger noticed immediately and reseated us inside. Patio was full, so we were inside. Beautiful space regardless of where you're seated. The food, as always, was excellent. Service fell off towards the end, but other than that a very good experience.

What a GREAT place right at Times Square! We would highly recommend it for lunch or pre theater or dinner. It’s a fabulous vibe and outstanding food. The trout was one of the best preparations we’ve ever had.

GORGEOUS venue for a brunch, after work drink or a few champagnes before a Broadway show. We went before attending a Fashion Week event and it did not disappoint. Both the food and alcohol lists are expensive but very reasonable given the venue and quality. It was odd that they didn't offer the lunch menu at 2:30pm (it wasn't offered till later in the day... like 3pm?) so we only had breakfast options that weren't easily sharable for our party. Apart from that oddity, I would highly recommend this venue and will definitely be coming back soon!

This was a lovely restaurant up on the 9th floor of the Edition (hotel) in NYC. We came here on a "date night" after seeing a show. The place is BEAUTIFUL on a nice summer night. Greenery everywhere. We started with a deep dish focaccia, which was good and very similar to a deep dish pizza but not quite pizza. We both had fish and ordered the chocolate souffle for dessert. The prices were not exorbitant ($20-$30 for an entreé) and it really felt special. We sat right near the doors to the outside, without even asking, they treat you like you're something special.

The restaurant is so beautiful!! There are plants everywhere, the linens are beautiful, the ambiance is that of a garden party. My husband and I came for brunch on Sunday. They have amazing beverages, I had a Secret Garden which was so tasty! Husband got the eggs benedict and I got the egg sandwich, and neither disappointed! Some of the best brunch we have had! Would HIGHLY recommend!

The place is nice but this is far too expensive for what you get on the plate and in your glass.
My plate was also very very spicy, I ilke that but I'm sure it would not taste people who are not used to eat so spicy!

The Terrace at EDITION is so beautiful and the staff was so nice and helpful!. The food was great, the only complaint would be the salad had way too much dressing but everything else was wonderful! I would highly recommend checking this restaurant out!

The ambiance was great, food was also good but I ordered a filet mignon and cut it opened while the runner was still at the table. It was undercooked so I sent it back to be cooked a little more. Everyone else at the table had their food and were finished eating by the time I was able to flag someone down and ask about my entree. They apparently made a whole new steak, which was unnecessary and took a long time. The manager was nice and comped my dish, which I didn’t ask for. I actually would have preferred to pay for my dish and eat with everyone else, instead of eating alone. The problem was that our waitress was totally clueless and never once followed up with us during the meal.

Brad was our server and did a fantastic job. We were headed to the theater afterwards and he helped get us out on time while still creating a relaxing evening.
Truly an oasis from the concrete jungle below, the decor and overall feel of this restaurant are what we needed most. My hubby had an old fashioned and I ordered their take on the Moscow mule with passion fruit, yum! The food was delish, we had the toothpick pork belly and crudités to start. For our meal we enjoyed the petite filet and swordfish.

Lovely Sunday brunch. Service was great. Nice setting. Food top notch for a group of four with different tastes. 2 egg lovers, 1 waffle lover and 1 who abhors eggs. Highly recommend if in that part of town. Wouldn't make a special trip though.

I have mixed feelings about posting this review because the food, service and ambiance was exceptional, and I'm a long time fan of Chef John Fraser. Our cocktails, grilled octopus, tie dye salad, rack of lamb, brook trout, miso spinach and chocolate souffle were all first rate and correctly priced for fine dining in NYC. And our server Joel provided service to match the food. But frankly I was shocked when the bill came and I saw the mint tea was $14. Note, this tea was ordered without looking at a menu. I've never seen mint tea before at this price. Thankfully we didn't order 2! I even asked Joel if the price was perhaps an error. I would have been happier if when my wife ordered the mint tea we were told sorry we don't serve mint tea. So now every restaurant I go to I look at the price of mint tea and shake my head in disbelief that The Terrace charges $14 for a pot of water and a few mint leaves. I tell friends and colleges more about the price of the mint tea than the wonderful dinner and service. Please go to The Terrace for its great food, service and ambiance, but beware of the mint tea until they get its price in line with the rest of the menu.

Terrible service and unfortunate dining experience overall. It was really as if they had no idea what they were doing. Staff was of low caliber and was disorganized to say the least. It took someone 30 mins from the time we sat to take our order and another hour for our main course to arrive. Overall we were there for 2.5 hours for lunch. Never considering going back.

A perfectly calm spot above the hustle of Times Square below. A perfect place to relax before braving the crowds and noise pre-theater. My food (chicken) was under-done but the wait staff did not miss a beat in taking it back for a better-done dish.

Solid dining experience but the service is what made the meal. My friend dropped a little sauce on her top, and I kid you not, within 10 seconds someone was our table with a wet wipe. My friend hadn’t even noticed there was food on her shirt yet. Super compassionate and attentive wait staff. Would definitely come again.
