    Spending our 50th wedding anniversary on the Terrace outdoor seating area was perfect. From booking the reservation, then having to change due to a family member's illness, to the time we walked away, it was magical. The hostess, Heidi, was delightful, the garden was very pretty, the staff offered very personalized service and the meal was delicious. Wonderful memory to add to our 50 years together. Thank you so much

    Une fois passé un moment de flottement induit par un placement que je qualifierais de surprenant et qu’il a fallu vite rectifier, la soirée fut divine. Excellente cuisine basée sur des produits locaux de qualité. Service impeccable et irréprochable, avec plusieurs personnes qui nous parlent en français. La décoration des lieux est digne d’un relais et châteaux. Nous avons passé une excellente soirée.

    The cocktails were disappointing at such a high end restaurant to be served with too much ice, tall glasses, long straws, and very little alcohol. Later than 7 is best for reservations IF you're out to see people, as we were only 1 of 2 parties with a 6 o'clock.

    Our last visit was 22 years ago and we were delighted to see that the decor was exactly the same, and gleaming! It’s a gorgeous little historic gem. The service was first rate and my martini was perfection. The only miss was the food. The serving of beef carpaccio was oddly tiny and seared at the edges, and the Dover Sole for $83 might as well have been tilapia and it was overcooked! The pasta with truffles had zero truffle flavor.

    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}.

    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
