Some of New England’s most acclaimed cuisine is found at The Terrace at The Charlotte Inn. Classic American cuisine showcases many ingredients from Martha’s Vineyard’s own farms and seas, and its bounty of local gardens. Sumptuous meals are presented amidst stunning surroundings. Whether it is by flickering candlelight in the glass-paned conservatory dining room, or beneath the stars on a terrace enclosed by ivy-covered lattice, there is no more romantic or elegant setting in which to enjoy an evening. The Terrace serves dinner to the public nightly in season; this setting is most appropriate for adults and children over the age of 14 as to ensure a quiet, romantic setting for our guests. Having run the Relais & Chateaux hotel for over 40 years, The Charlotte Inn is delighted to now own and operate The Terrace. Executive Chef Justin Melnick has quickly established a dedicated following of regular guests, and is a must-try restaurant for anyone visiting Martha's Vineyard.

Wonderful family birthday celebration with our family. Everything was perfect including a very special cake made in house.

I booked this place for our first wedding anniversary and the food from the appetizers to the main course till the desert that came out was exquisite.

The staff was super friendly and the chef did an amazing job with my fillet mignon.

Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Martha’s Vineyard

The dining room is an eclectic mix of foliage, art and memorabilia. From the moment you arrive in the door you enjoy this beautiful structure. We were asked if we would like to enjoy a drink by the fireplace, but chose to go directly to our table. Wait staff is pleasant, informative and accommodating. The off season Prix Fixe Menu had something to please most everyone. Since it changes weekly I won't go into details of our choices, but will say that nothing disappointed. A wonderful experience and we will certainly return when visiting Martha's Vineyard.

I was disappointed that the amount of food was so small. I actually went home hungry. It is too bad as I really like this venue. I have been here several times in the past and I have not had this problem. I hope they can improve.

Elegant dining experience from start to finish and our server, James, could not have been more accommodating.

It is actually hard to put this experience into words. They are aiming for "proper" according the the hostess. The place is quite stuffy - with a great deal of effort put into being arrogant. The place was deafeningly quiet and that is what they are working towards and are successful. Our waiter "James" tried to put a little lift into our dining experience - thanks James!!!

The food was OK. The skirt steak was beyond tough - but the scallops were cooked perfectly!! Albeit scallops on a butternut squash purée with fresh apple salad was just weird to me.

Great service, wonderful food, nice atmosphere. A lot of neat historical artifacts to see in the front of the house

This restaurant is fine dining at its best. The staff was very professional and attentive without being too attentive. The food was outstanding. They have a prix fixe menu in the off season I believe. Three choices for appetizers, entrees and desserts. All very good. I had the scallops with a butternut squash puree. It was delicious! Subtle seasonings to bring out the flavors. All in all this is an exceptional restaurant.

One of a kind eclectically decorated rooms in an antique house. Decorated with lovely paintings and antique furniture it is a visual delight. Although bread was forgotten and we had to ask water to be refilled, overall the staff were caring and willing to fulfill any request. The experience was truly over the top and lots of fun. Looking forward to visit again!

As always a great dining experience. Summer or winter this restaurant is one of the best not only on Martha's Vineyard but one of the best I have experienced. The ambiance is only topped by the food and very attentive but not smothering attention to customers by all employees. Last night I was disappointed to have missed the best member of the staff, the beloved golden retriever, who had already retired for the evening. I'll have to go back soon!!

We absolutely loved the terrace! The room was lovely with my favorite soft music playing. Our server, James, was knowledgeable and offered great ideas for our first visit. The drink and wine selection was very good. I chose the lobster duo which was outstanding! My husband selected the evening scallop special which was wonderful.
It was just such a special evening all around! I highly recommend!

Our experience at the Terrace turned out to be more about the experience and the setting than the food. Our meals, while very good were no match for the excellent level of service and the wonderful setting. All in all I would highly recommend.

Wonderful ambiance. The wait staff is excellent. Food was little spotty. Was hoping for perfect but it was not. Appetizer was just ok main courses had quite a few issues which could have ruined the whole night but staff reacted properly. Overall a very very nice restaurant and we will give it another try.

If you at Martha's Viveyard, you need to come here if a dining experiance is what you are lookin for. My wife and I have dined at some very good places in Europe and the US. The Terrace is in our top five. It was flawless.
