My wife had The Brittany, but the size of the serving has been reduced from what we can remember and they did not serve garlic bread with it, just oyster crackers. Served with salad, but they added another $2.00 for Caesar Salad. Bringing her lunch to $19.00, Won't return as there are better places in Olympia.

Gee, what happened? The service wasn't good and the food was worse. I had a steak and added a lobster and my mom had prawns. Her shrimp was soggy and the steak was tough with lost of gristle. The waitress never came back until we were done (didn't eat much as it wasn't very good). I feel bad for leaving... More

On the whole, I enjoy the Falls Terrace quite a lot, based upon dinner for two here on two different occasions last month. However, there are a few quirks which might get in the way of a perfect experience. The first experience was their Christmas Day dinner. We both had the roast turkey, and we both were highly satisfied with... More

I spent several years delivering supplies here for a former employer. I took my wife here for dinner. The entire restaurant is spotless from storage to dining room. The food is amazing,and the scenery is wonderful. Our service was excellent,and dessert was off the hook. Chef Dan runs a tight ship,and it shows. 5 stars from us for sure.

It was very nice to watch the falls from the window while dining for lunch. The restaurant was quick with our order and was child-friendly. The food is good, old fashioned comfort foods and it is easy to find something on the menu for everyone in your party. The decor is homey and has a Pacific Northwest vibe. Would recommend.

My husband and I made reservations for an early dinner at 5pm, looking forward to a leisurely and romantic evening. The restaurant was aglow in the lights from tasteful, rustic Christmas decor and the falls looked spectacular even after dark. After ordering wine, we placed our dinner order (rib eye with sautéed mushrooms and the filet mignon topped with crab,... More

We took our 8 yr. old grandson out for. Special dinner before his play performance. He loved the food, service, and view of the falls just outside our window. Food was delicious with ample portions.

Our favorite place to dine in the Olympia area! We met our family members there to celebrate our grandaughter's arrival from Maui. She is employed in the restaurant business there and loves Falls Terrace when she visits. The service and food were very good. Of course, the view of the falls is fantastic, especially at this time of the year... More

After celebrating my husband's birthday here in October, 2016, we returned for Thanksgiving dinner. The place was packed, and the atmosphere was festive and friendly. Although we had made a reservation, we had to wait about 25 minutes for our table, but considering the holiday and the crowd, we weren't too critical. The food was again delicious and served promptly.... More

The food here is good and the prices are fair. What you are paying for is the view of the falls. It is amazing. I have eaten here more than once and have enjoyed it every time.
