Anniversary. We lucked out with perfect weather, but the sunset was perfect. We planned for our dinner to start around 30 minutes before the scheduled sunset, and that allowed for the most magnificent views for the first 1-1.5 hours of dinner. Food and service Was incredible. Wee had the tuna tartare, pork rilleno, Cesar salad (not spicy, and jalapeño breadcrumbs such a treat compared to croutons), rib eye and filet (literally melted, such great flavor, and although the sauces were amazing, required no additional flavor). Started with a pre-dinner cocktail and terrace bar and ended with after dinner drink at the lounge with live piano music at perfect noise level while enjoying a fire. It was perfect.
Shout out to our Server, Tim, he did a Great Job!!! We truly enjoyed it! Thank you!!!
Food is expensive for the amount you get. Crab cake was tiny and bun was huge. Too much bread.
Beautiful view and lovely service and quality entrees!
Not quite as good as in past years. Very expensive. $75 for a ribeye. But we love the Grove Park Inn and the ambiance so here we are.
Great atmosphere and service! Food was very good, except for the apple crisp dessert which was stone cold.
Amazing views and great food. If you can get a reservation for sunset it is spectacular.
Great meal in every way.
Excellent experience. Wonderful birthday for my husband. When we couldn’t make a decision, our waiter was very helpful and made a perfect choice for us.
It was beautiful!
Very busy and crowded , all food good . Lots of people coming just to drink and hang out on the patio for sunset . Very young crowd , almost all were masked but they could have enforced it on the people who felt they were “ exempt “
The lobster cobb salad was fantastic and the view was out of site!
A wonderful relaxing lunch with spectacular view!
Food and wine was superb, as well as the service!
GPI is one of my favorite places!! The 2 hostesses were a tad bit short but the gentleman that took us to the table and the wait staff more than made up for it
We had a wonderful experience. The server was friendly and helpful. Service was on spot. Food was Devine. Best old fashioned ever.
Our server was excellent, the food was amazing and what a view!
I'm always in awe when I walk out onto the Terrace because of the views. The ambiance of the location is just perfect - the architecture, the seating, the wait staff, and the food - just a perfect dining experience. Thank you.
Tuna tartare and lemon pasta appetizers delicious and unusual
This place over exceeded my expectations. The view was absolutely AMAZING especially while the sun was setting . The food was delicious. Usually ambiance and good food aren’t on the same level but here everything was immaculate!
Wonderful view from the patio, great for social distancing, we dined at 3pm and the sun was very hot, not sure if there is a way that some type of sun shield/ shade could be installed. I’m sure it’s ok in the cooler weather. Service and food was awesome.
We stayed at the Omni Grove Inn for our babymoon. This restaurant was spectacular! The atmosphere was perfect. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding! We will be back!
Loooooved this place!!! Amazing views and food. 5 stars!!!
My wife and I dined at Sunset Terrace recently for our anniversary dinner. We had eaten there a few times years ago and loved it. This time was different, though, and we will never return.
The view from the terrace is great, breathtaking even. And, to be fair, we appreciated the complimentary glasses of champagne for our anniversary.
Everything else was quite disappointing for an anniversary (or any) dinner.
One pays a premium for the view from the terrace, since food was mediocre at best and way overpriced (the tab for two of us was $135, and this included no wine or alcoholic drinks).
I have stayed at fine hotels and dined many times at fine restaurants and clubs and have happily paid more than $135 for meals numerous times. However, I cannot recall a meal where the food was so lackluster for the price (it truly didn't merit the price). It's also hard to recall a fine restaurant that did not offer bread with the meal (I would have settled for some crackers with my soup, but didn't get them either).
Also, we didn't like that we were seated at a table with high bar stools, not a regular table, and at a table that still had crumbs from prior diners.
I am done with Sunset Terrace.

Perfect night and a great place with service out of this world. The food was the best we ever had, the steak would melt in your mouth. And the view was incredible, we had a table on outer edge of the patio. It will be a night we will remember.
What a wonderful experience! Although we weren't able to get a sunset reservation, our luch time one was still a great experience! The views are magnificent, service excellent & food was delicious! We will definitely revisit whenwe are there again!
Two of us had the Lobster Cobb and I could tell the lobster wasn’t fresh, had very little taste. Overall the salad just had very little flavor.
Great meal with a great view! The venison chili was amazing!
Outstanding service, food and view!!
I’ve seen reviews where they made the anniversary very special.. not in my case.. nothing was mentioned at all even though the information was given during the booking. Beautiful scenery and food was great but overpriced. I’ve seen desserts that said Happy Anniversary and wish it was at least offered to make it more memorable. We had a better time at other restaurants in the city that cost a quarter of what we paid
We had gotten engaged. What an amazing evening.
Such a wonderful dining experience for my birthday. We ate around sunset which was beautiful. The terrace was comfortable despite the cooler weather. Food was delicious!
We really enjoyed it and the weather was perfect!!
Fun place, classy. Enjoyed my parents 40th anniversary brunch!
Gorgeous view! Excellent experience, great food! Looking forward to visiting again.
Very good service
Really enjoyed the view and ability to walk around afterwards. Food and service were top notch as expected.
Absolutely go. The views are stunning. The service is perfect (ask for Tim!). The food was nicely presented and high quality. What else is there to ask for? We had a memorable experience - unusual in today's 'ocean of mediocre dining.' Five stars, for sure.
Amazing views! Great food. Service fantastic. Will definitely be back.
This was an absolutely wonderful restaurant! The food was incredible, the service was great, and the view was beautiful! It was a perfect evening!!
