I felt discriminated against. The people at the other tables around me were all asked by the waitress if they were doing well/how was the food/etc. We all know this is a basic procedure for all restaurants in the US, and as the only table of Asians, we had never been asked. The waitress also had a bad attitude towards us. It made me very uncomfortable and I will NOT visit this restaurant again. Would NOT recommend it to my friends either.

Food was very good! Sadly the service was severely lacking. Our waitress had an attitude the entire time - like she was doing us a favor. She never asked how we were doing, when we asked about menu items she acted like we were infringing upon her time. My husband ordered the pecan old fashioned (very tasty) as a before dinner drink & it took her so long to bring it that the ice had melted so it was a water downed drink. Like I said, the food is very good, but I’ll go elsewhere with service like that.

Let the maitre d’ know if was my wife’s birthday - not one person mentioned a thing or acknowledged it. Very poor service all around. Biscuits and beignets were microwaved. Pasta was extremely over cooked and sticking together. Fish was way over cooked and had the consistency of chicken. Everything was extremely overpriced. Classic tourist trap…

First of all Terrace provided excellent friendly service. I dined alone and he filled in with some helpful attentiveness. I loved the She Crab soup. I had never had it before and it was savory. I also loved my shrimp and grits with the light sauce on top. The fried green tomatoes are unique, but were cold in the middle and the goat cheese and balsamic was overpowering. However I would definitely go back. The ambiance is wonderful. Thank you!

We had reservations for 6:45 but we were not seated til 7:05. They said they lost track of us. Service was perfunctory. Lots of reaching across the table to serve us. My food was average. Hamburger, fries, salad and still water was probably around 30.00. Salad was great. Beautiful historic place. Best probably for lunch. Not quite up to evening expectations.

All of the food was good as usual. Recognize that these are difficult times, but disappointed that the "raw bar" is no longer available on the lunch menu.
Think our server may have been new, as he forgot some items. No worries, though.

First time in Savannah and first timers in VICS on the river for mine and my sister’s birthday. What a wonderful experience we had! From the table location to the birthday cake complementary they brought us at the end. The food was simply amazing! Shrimps and grits and the crab soup were to die for! Highly recommend!

Our server Jenna was very friendly and made great recommendations. We had the fried green tomatoes, grilled octopus, she-crab soup, poached pear salad, entrees included the best fried chicken we’ve ever had, redfish special and Atlantic seafood with pasta. Everything was cooked to perfection and perfectly seasoned.

What a lovely place! Sat by a window overlooking river watching the ferry’s lights. Best braised short ribs I’ve ever had and the oysters were excellent. Our server made us feel we were her only guests and it was just a perfect night.

The she crab soup was good but the rest of the meal was mediocre. Did not appreciate being seated downstairs. I made this reservation a while ago and expected to be seated in the main room. I do not think I will come here again on my next trip to Savannah
