I had a birthday party at the Terrace Tavern last Saturday and it was an excellent venue and the food and drink were exceptional. I felt the staff were under a lot of pressure and wondered if they were a little shortstaffed. The service was very good, but the champagne glasses ran out and the staff struggled to be able to provide these. This as the only small problem on an otherwise excellent event. Thank you so much to Amy & the Team

Our large group for lunch was well accommodated, with pre-orders taken to facilitate a smooth and prompt service. Meals were in the majority reviewed on the positive side (TT toastie, PB&J French Toast, Eggs Bene) although our group member who ordered the Crudo commented on the meal size being on the small side in comparison to other orders from the same "Light Lunch" section of the menu.

Food we wanted had all sold out by 8pm on Saturday evening. No flavour to food. Rowdy atmosphere. Overpriced.

First choice of main was no longer available. Unfortunate. Then was told that we got the last of our next choice. Perhaps better stock in kitchen would help.

I had tried to get into another restaurant that we had been to before but it was fully booked as this was a business dinner and I wanted to make sure everything went well. I ended up deciding to try this one hoping it would be alright as this was our first visit. We were greeted warmly by the manager upon arrival and from there on in the service was beyond exceptional the staff were attentive and very knowledgeable on there product I wanted a glass of champagne it wasn’t sold by the glass but they opened a bottle for me that actually really impressed me I think I ended up drinking most of it anyway, the waitress was incredible and the food stunning I would highly recommend terrace tavern. Thank you so much for an awesome night we will definitely be back .

VPC mocktail was delicious however for $8 and being a mocktail I would want it bigger. Another of our party ordered another mocktail that was huge! The service was fantastic, couldn't fault it at all, including communication prior to arriving. Brownie on the ice cream sandwich could do with being warmed slightly (not enough to melt the ice cream!) or slightly sweeter (maybe have some melted choc chunks in it - some white choc would be nice in it...)

I always enjoy taking customers to one of the venues. The only concern I have is that when its is busy the service starts to lack and for instance yesterday we had to wait for the side dishes while our main dish was getting cold. Some of our group had eaten their main meal and then only received their side dish. The same happened last night at Dux Central for our family gathering and I hope that this is not becoming a trend.

Ordered medium well done steak which was pink most the way through looked rare in the middle so gave it to my husband. Very pretty place though
