I made the reservation to the Terrace room website which took me to OpenTable. When I got there the host said they did not have my reservation because they no longer use OpenTable. I then showed the host my email confirmation and my reservation time of 730, and The host told me they no longer use OpenTable and the restaurant was full.
.... after once again showing my email reservation I complained and asked to speak to a manager, then the host suddenly found a table for two, but it was not what I asked for or reserved.
....The Terrace room food is always excellent, and we will go back, but the OpenTable experience through the terrace room website was on excusable

Terrace Room has become one of my preferred dining destinations in Harbor Country - and tonight I invited two friends to join me for dinner. It was their first visit - and they left with a terrific 1st impression: terrific menu options and superior service. Already looking forward to more visits in the months ahead!

First time to the Terrace Room for a special occasion, the restaurant had a great view of the marina and an enjoyable atmosphere. The service was prompt and knowledgeable. We dined on Caprese Bruschetta and two pasta dishes- the ravioli and the rigatoni- all of it was delicious. We also indulged in some red wine and a specialty cocktail that was amazing. We will definitely be back to explore more of the menu-

It was off-season during the week, so for a short while, I had a private dining room. During the regular season, it is much busier, I would imagine. However, they have a great ambiance and a great list of wines and beers--both international and locally brewed. Their "specials" are a real treat--I had the beef shank (with beans, other vegetables, and Swiss chard) with a Fuller's London Porter (on tap). It was a fabulous meal with a rich variety of flavors that worked together to create a great culinary experience. The service was prompt, polite and attentive without hovering.

Will definitely be back! Very good experience overall.
I’d rename the farro salad to spinach salad. Vast majority of the salad was spinach with just very small amounts of farro & other veggies. It was good though but not at all what we expected based on name & description.

To start Amber was our host for our time at the Terrace Room and there isn't a better person for the best customer experience that I could imagine. She was engaging, kept just the right pace of our time together (my date and I are a bit chatty) so Amber was aware and measured her engagements perfectly.
The food was remarkable and the specials are something not to be ignored. It came out with a great presentation and the taste was something I'd like to repeat again and again.
One additional extraordinary addition to the experience is the outdoor sitting area and fire place. It was somewhat chilly but around the fire AND with the addition of a blanket they offered oh my how to end a great evening.
I recommend when in the area plan your evening around taking in all the the Terrace Rooms offers.

Stayed at the Harbor Grand 2/17-10. The Terrace Room was packed Saturday night, and to the ladies behind the bar - you were amazing! We enjoyed the firepit with beverages, s'mores and blankets on Sunday late afternoon and then Sunday night dinner which was much quieter and reminded us of The Terrace Room prior to the fabulous renovation that took place two years ago this upcoming July. Cocktails, food, and service? Excellent as always. Looking forward to returning soon!

Delicious dinner (prime rib & raviolis) by the fireplace. The newly remodeled restaurant is gorgeous! Food & service were both very good. The only negative was a disruptive diner seated next to us talking loudly & cursing throughout dinner (F-bombs). We chose to ignore it & when we got up to leave, he stood up (clearly drunk) & directed his profanity at us. I looked at the manager who was appalled & mouthed “sorry” to me. However, sorry wasn’t good enough. The manager should have asked him to leave the restaurant. This is a fine dining restaurant not a sports bar!

A special place for my wife and me. They have remodeled and it is so cozy and warm feeling. The staff was wonderful and so very helpful during the meal. Families were roasting marshmallows on the patio. Kids were having a great time. Too cold for us. Our food was very well presented and delicious. We will be going back.

Another great meal & exceptional service. Terrace Room never disappoints. The use of fresh ingredients & herbs is evident in every dish. Salads were fresh & crisp with just enough dressing which were all housemade & delicious. The Fettuccine special with tomato sauce was outstanding. The dessert menu is really nice. There are several light offerings that a great after a hearty meal. Cozy & welcoming ambiance on cold winter night.

Still exceptional dining in Harbor Country...beautiful interior, the best servers, and a contemporary warm space.

I am still going to complain about the loud "crazy jazz" piped into the main dining room. Please, get the frenetic jazz off your playlist and stick with the more soothing/vintage jazz offerings given the high volume you choose to play it at. Please.
