We had a wonderful experience with The Terrace. They were responsive and accommodated our requests as much as possible. The service was very professional and the food was wonderful on the night.

Excellent! I was pregnant at the time and they revised the menu for me. Great pricing and they were able to assist us and work with our budget. They also organised a gondola entrance for us and the photos were incredible. Everyone of us guest loved the food and each table had their own waiter.

A huge Thanks to Emily and team for the excellent service. Everything was absolutely beautiful, scenery, food, service, friendliness.. Emily is a true professional, helpful, friendly, organised, positive, accommodating and with a "can-do" attitude that made the night special. A huge Thanks once again. We have had lots of compliments.

They were alright, everything was a bit too much by the book. It was quite hard getting in contact with them but everything else was quite efficient.

I loved The Terrace. The venue looks beautiful and different both day and night, the setting is magical. The staff were fantastic, particularly Emily Major who was helpful in every stage of the planning. The staff were easy to work with, and very accommodating for all the tweaks and things we wanted to set up. The food was delicious, and beautifully presented.

The venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. The communication was really great. We were able to go in and set things up a few days before the wedding which we found really helpful. There were lots of different options on how we could set up the room which was great.
