    Contrary to the Edgartown, MA Board of Health current (9/9/21) regulations regarding Covid that require masks for everyone, vaccinated or not, while indoors in public spaces, the wait staff at the Charlotte Inn were not wearing masks. At every other restaurant we ate at in Edgartown and all over Martha's Vineyard that week, the wait staff wore masks. So we were surprised when we arrived, and had we known in advance the wait staff would not be wearing masks, we would not have dined there, although we have enjoyed dining there in the past, since I have a compromised immune system. So patrons beware, the restaurant operator is more concerned about ambience than your health, or is just a (your choice of expletive}.

    It was our anniversary and we were treated like royalty with complimentary champagne. The ambiance is magical, walking through a library in the inn to get to the restaurant.

    Outstanding service, food and ambiance. We make it a point to go to The Terrace when we are on Martha’s Vineyard. I have dietary restrictions and the chef is very careful to make me a dinner that avoids my allergens and is absolutely delicious! The setting is gorgeous and very romantic. Just the perfect restaurant!

    The Terrace at The Charlotte Inn is beautiful and the food is excellent. The service is also first rate. However, I could not rate it 5 stars because of my concern for safety precautions during COVID. Every other establishment we visited on Martha's Vineyard required indoor masking and servers wore masks at restaurants. No employees wear masks here despite the fact that the restaurant had to close temporarily in August due to a COVID outbreak amongst its workers (see The Vineyard Gazette, August 26, 2021). We were really surprised to find that The Charlotte Inn and The Terrace don't exercise COVID precautions when there is a mandate from The Edgartown Department of Health. So, again, the food and service are great. You won't be disappointed there. It all depends on your comfort level. Had we known before, we would not have gone.

    Without exception—THE finest dining on Martha’s Vineyard. The Terrace excels in every aspect of the dining experience. The service to absolutely top-notch with truly professional wait staff and front of the house personnel. The food is superb. I has a Lobster special and it was spectacular. The Escargot was excellent and my wife’s scallops were perfect. A nice selection of wines by the glass also: We chose the Chateau Neuf du Pape and the bar service was great to. My martini was as cold as I would have normally made it. Some people will balk at the cost, but you get what you pay for an much more at the Terrace at The Charlotte in Edgartown

    We are French and we are very sorry, but it is not the high French cuisine level... Very disappointed by the experience... We have choosen the Chief’s tasting menu with seven courses : - the amuse-bouche was supposed to be a celery veloute but finally with tomatoe, tasteless. - Good Foie Gras Terrine but small piece - Burgundy escargots supposed to be with parsley garlic sauce, but we are still looking for garlic, so it was very tasteless - Correct cod with a vegetables Tian (Provencal gratin) but please, don’t use cream in Provence cuisine... - Good beef duo with wine sauce 😋 - Awful Alps région dessert, the worst dessert ever in a Relais & Chateaux or Michelin restaurant... 😱 - We are still waiting the last part of the menu : Paris region coffee chocolate truffle 🧐 But the worst was the service. Our two servers were very kind but not skilled : - They forgot one mocktail in 3 and one other mocktail was awful. - They served tap water in glasses filled with water from bottle AquaPlanna 😳 - We asked for bread with burgundy escargots but they gave us just one bread for 3 people. 😳 - We asked for white burgundy wine, they gave red wine, and finally said they did not have burgundy white wine... and proposed us Chablis: Chablis IS burgundy white wine !!!!!..... 😂 - And finally, they did not give us the Paris Region coffee chocolate truffle 🧐 Perhaps the summer season has not already started, but our dinner was not a very good experience, not the level of a Relais & Chateaux restaurant, not the level of Michelin stars French Cuisine (as the servers said), not the level of the price we paid. Finally very disappointed... 😔

    It was a very special occasion for my wife and I. The Charlotte Inn was the place we stayed at 28 years ago when we got engaged. I made my reservation with specific instructions to have a bottle of Vueve Cliquot at the table for out arrival. I was disappointed not see it there. Our server brought it to the table after a few minutes. Looking at the bottle, I could tell it wasn’t chilled. He opened and poured. It was room temp at best. I asked the server to ice it. It never really got Cold. The food was good but not up to my expectations. Being a chef in a fine dining restaurant, I expect more when I sit down to dine at such an establishment with a Michelin star chef. My overall feeling was that the servers were not properly trained and didn’t have someone overseeing them. Would I eat there again? Yes! But I probably won’t expect the high level of food and service that I had anticipated this time.

    On our first trip to Martha's Vineyard, celebrating our wedding anniversary, we made a same day reservation at The Terrace. The restaurant is inside the Charlotte Inn, and through the gallery. The wait staff tag teamed and were simply lovely. They greeted us with champagne (in beautiful flutes). The menu was simple and everything sounded yummy. We opted for kale salad and escargot to start, beef short ribs and salmon, and finished with lemon mousse cake and chocolate cannolis. In addition to our meal choices, each course was opened with delicious surprises. The whole meal was simple delicioso! The whole experience was delightful.

    We were extremely surprised because we have had so many totally happy guests. These people were extremely rude, screamed at our manager who was trying to be nice by making sure their dinner was complimentary and offered them a return visit, and we must say they were two of the most miserable guests we have had in 50 years.

    The food was delicious and the service was attentive and knowledgeable. Pumpkin soup was a surprise amuse bouche. The Short rib was rich, favorful and hearty. The Halibut with herb sauce was delicious. The portions are good sized. The Terrace was warm with plants and soft lighting. We were in on a quiet Thursday on the Vineyard in early March.

    It was our anniversary and the staff treated us wonderfully. The food was very good - I had the lobster special and my husband had the cod. Both were delicious! The restaurant is housed in an old inn. I appreciate the history but it felt just a little damp inside. I felt like it could use some updating. Our waiter was amazing and we had a very good time overall!
