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.

Love the setting . Have eaten here before with mixed experience . Thanksgiving was a disappointing experience. Lentils were cold . Prime rib was undercooked and tough. Service was excellent and cocktails were good but would not do it again. The setting is amazing so we keep hoping for better experience. Not sure if we will keep trying.

We love this place. Great food, beautiful dining room, and friendly service. The house salad is creatively prepared with hazelnuts, fennel, arugula, lemon, and Parmesan. Yum. The Pappardelle Bolognese is always spot on. A must have! We also got the bone in ribeye which was grilled perfectly.

This is a special place. It has so many good menu choices yet it is a limited menu ! There is something for everyone. Pasta dishes are a very good choice although every menu item is one you can’t go wrong with! Wait staff is very professional! In the warm weather the outside seating is a good choice!

My husband and I celebrated our 20th Annivesary at the Terrace Room. We had Danielle as our server and they clearly check their reservation notes, because she and the manager both made our night very special. We started with cocktails and then shared a bottle of wine with our meals. It was incredibly relaxing, we were not rushed. We had the Seafood Cioppino and theBistecca alla Griglia. The Bistecca is a 20oz RR signature strip was amazing, month watering and I can’t wait to go back and order it again. It was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Thank you for memorable night. We shared a bottle of Powers Merlot, delicious and not expensive.

My family and I absolutely love the food.
It is , however, extremely loud ALL the time.
The restaurant has a nice fireplace but as a result the room temperature is WAY to warm. Management could turn the flame down without sacrificing ambiance - ALWAYS too warm.
Phenominal kitchen !
