As usual we had an excellent meal. Well served by the staff who were very polite. Also the staff in kitchen especially Gabrielle. Booking on line was a bit difficult, prefer to telephone and get an answer right away
I absolutely hate writing anything rubbish about The Terrace but not sure what was happening last night apart from the fact it was the last day that they were open before the holidays etc. Service was slow, staff didn't engage, we ordered our food before someone realised we hadn't had drinks yet. The menu was good but the asparagus was hard, the poached egg cold and I had none of the smoked cheese sauce on my plate. My other half had a load of it so quality checks not there either. Main was good (lamb and the other half had beef) but for the first time ever there was no mention of what potato's or veg were being served with the main and in the end (for the first time) the same veg went out to everyone so no variety. Dessert was set up as a choice on the menu but we didn't get a choice, it just turned up and we were told 'its a trio, you get everything'. The sorbet was awful and almost instantly melted into a puddle and the worst thing was the cheesecake which must have been left sitting on a surface somewhere near the fish course or we were given a plate that hadn't been washed properly because it tasted of salmon - it was absolutely disgusting. I love this place but overall this year the students don't seem to have had any interest at all and that was reflected in last night
Staff were attentive & pleasant. Food was excellent, and very reasonable prices
Exceptional restaurant. The fact that it’s run by students is mind blowing enough but once you’ve been you will fully comprehend just how top notch the food is and the value for money is extraordinary. I wish it was open every night!!!
Excellent food. Will definitely be back!
Service, customer care and food were all excellent. We were very impressed with the care taken to accommodate my dietary requirements (gluten and dairy free).
Fantastic food and people. Have been and will be back again and again !!!!
The whisky tasting and pairing on Friday was very well put together and executed. This should deffinately be a regular thing maybe once per month. Will 100% be back if it is on again
The Whisky Tasting was an excellent evening and we thoroughly enjoyed the night.
Food was excellent .....friendly service from all the staff ...thoroughly enjoyed our visit .....would highly recommend ......
Excellent meal and service, we shall return !
The atmosphere is really nice and relaxed, the staff are brilliant and tend to your every need and the food is hands down better than any restaurant I’ve tried in West Lothian or Edinburgh. The price and quality can’t be beaten. Thanks again to the chefs and staff for a fantastic experience.
The Terrace is the ONLY place to be in West Lothian. Bring back Fridays!!
