Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The views from this place are amazing. Luckily we had a beautiful clear night to witness a stunning sunset. The food and drinks were exceptional.

If you are looking to hold an event at this establishment PLEASE GO ELSEWHERE. This place will take your money and not be held accountable for not delivering on what you paid for including food and service. The staff is absolutely incompetent and the managers...are children who are going to run this business straight into the ground. I’ve have tried multiple times to reach upper management/business owners and have been unsuccessful. This is another place in Memphis that will most likely be closing soon. If you are having an event that is special to you, please DO NOT have it here. You will be Highly DISAPPOINTED.More

This is the best place in Memphis to view sunsets over the Mississippi river! Great choice of specialty drinks and small plates. Everything we have tried has been tasty! Service is friendly and prompt.

My partner and I booked a table for 2 at the terrace for Valentine’s Day dinner. The restaurant took my credit card details for the reservation and informed me we would be changed $25 for no show. We arrived 10 minutes early for our booking...to find around 20 or so people also waiting for their bookings. Some people had been waiting for over 30 mins. After waiting 15 minutes and only seeing one couple seated in that time we decided to leave the restaurant. It was clearly in chaos and we were not prepared for a long wait when we had made a booking. Big shame after paying for Ubers there and back to have our evening ruined as the restaurant was not able to honor its reservations. I appreciate v day will be busier than normal but these are the evenings restaurants need to get right!More

I live in Harbortown and Don the COO used to live in my building. ANTHONY is such a loss. He was one of credentials and class—with THE UTMOST of guaranteed service. Way underpaid for his high-level performance.

We stopped up for a drink before dinner at Paulette‘s. The view was beautiful, but my Tanqueray and tonic was probably the worst I’ve ever had. I am not even sure that it was tonic. Would it be too much to ask for a slice...of lime or lemon? My companion's rum and tonic was no better. I could not even taste any rum. These are not complicated drinks. So the drinks were one star and the view was five star.More

Very disappointed. Reviews and food on site looked great. But it was likely overrated due to fantastic view and ambiance - menu was not fine dining and mediocre like you’d find in a hotel bar. Service was polite friendly and Kyle the bartender too! If...you are a foodie— not so great. Chicken over-cooked, sliders, too. Best thing on menu was juniper fusion (drink) and shrimp.More

The view of the river in open air with the crisp fall air was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed a starter of duck quesadillas. The Tennessee peach tea, autumn salad, filet mignon and Brussel sprouts were all delicious. The dining area is small, so I’d recommend...reservations. Would highly recommend this for a special evening out!More

Go look at the bridge light show from 8 to 10. Great drinks and food. Get the lamb sliders or anything on the menu, it is all good.

It was wonderful to find an open air place to eat during covid visit. For some males, these small plates will not be enough, but it was perfect for my teen and I. Waiting staff was very friendly. This place is located inside a condo...community, but there are a couple of restaurants in the center. I am glad we explored and went here. We had trouble with covid with lines at classic spots and overcrowding in restaurants in other places. It was perfect here.More

I just finished celebrating a wonderful anniversary at The Terrace. Jackie, the manager, was extremely attentive and even upgraded our seats for a better view of the beige. Our server, Nick, was an absolute delight! He kept us laughing all night! The cocktails were some...of the best and Jackie mixed us an amazing Chocolate Martini. I definitely recommend coming here on any special occasion. 💕More

Went for drinks to The Terrace and stayed for dinner. The staff is so friendly and professional. Lindsey the bartender is a master mixologist and a mind reader. She ensured that our glass was never empty. The manager, Jackie, was attentive and checked on us...often. Staff members Taylor and Nick provided excellent service and helped us with menu choices accommodating of our diet restrictions. I loved my experience at The Terrrace and will return when I’m back in town.More

I would recommend calling them. We did not have a reservation when we went recently -- 2 of us - and, we had a window table. Great views, food and drinks.
