I have dined at Terrapin many, many times and have never been disappointed. Exec Chef Rodney and GM Brian run a tight ship with a distinct focus on perfection. The food is local, farm-to-table, fresh, etc. It is expertly prepared and the waitstaff is well...More

I write this review with sadness in my heart. The reason being that we are leaving VB in the morning and can't eat there again. The meals there are amongst the best I've had anywhere. I had the Bouillabaisse. Very much the best Bouillabaisse I've...More

Terrapin is one of the very best restaurants in VB. The meals are great and well worth the asking price. It is a small place, so service is impeccable with minimal competition from other diners for a server’s attention. The downside is you should definitely...More

Yeah; I'd stick with that and nice shoes. You won't need a jacket-but, if you did have one you wouldn't feel overdressed if you decided to wear it. It's a first class place and yet not pretentious at all.
