We enjoyed two good meals over the holidays at Northside Bistro. The owners and staff are friendly and welcoming. Serving staff seemed a little inexperienced and service was slow at times. Some drinks had minimal alcohol, and when we commented to the server, he stated that others had complained about the bartender skimping on the alcohol. Most of the meals... More

Well the view can't be beat. We had a nice table out on the screened in porch. Unfortunately the dumpster had just been emptied, so got an occasional whiff of garbage odor. But not the Northside Bistro's fault. Our food was very good. The lobster thermador was tasty! I wasn't as excited about my potato encrusted grouper. Drink specials were... More

We found this treasure our last day on the Island. We wanted to try a restaurant that had music. Well we were greeted by a fabulous trio of musicians. Our dinner was prepared fresh. This was one of the best meals in St. Thomas. The owner Connie is delightful. We closed the place down with her.The menu is extensive and... More

Ordered the house salad & blackened Ahi. Fish was super fresh. My husband thought it was steak. FANTASTIC!!!!! Worth every $! Good portions as well. Did not leave hungry & had no room for desert which is a usual must at this establishment. Will come back for a repeat soon.

We visited the bistro during our first stay in St. Thomas. We stayed in Mahogany Run, which is about a 10-12 minute drive. In the dark, this place seems to be in the middle of nowhere. Upon arrival, we were greeted with many smiles and seated promptly. Several locals were conversing over drinks at the bar. We felt at home... More

I love the Northside Bistro vibe. You can enjoy a glass of delicious wine at the bar with girlfriends or have a romantic dinner on the screened patio. This week I did the latter and loved the service and food once again. A new bartender, Scott, was topnotch with his drinks. We thoroughly enjoyed crab/spinach/artichoke dip, the Caesar salad with...

Patronized by both north side villa rentals and locals, the Bistro can be a very lively place, especially on the weekends. Great specials, reasonable prices, friendly & efficient staff, and, fabulous views.

I'm a local on St Thomas and Northside Bistro is by far one of my favorite restaurants on the island! They always have really good specials, their homemade beers are all really good and changing all the time, and their food is awesome!! My favorite dish on the menu is the Mahi with the white wine and capers sauce….it's delicious!... More

The food here was very good and seemed freshly prepared. The crab-spinach-artichoke dip was excellent. Dishes were all good - we had pork t-bone, chicken marsala, and chicken cordon bleu. Joshua the bartender/server was friendly and accommodating. This was one of the better meals we had on the island - definitely the top 2. It's on the north side, overlooking... More

We saved Northside Bistro for our last night on the island again and it is still a great place to dine with good prices and service. Artichoke dip still good, big salads and tasty smoothie. I didn't care for the seafood ravioli but I didn't realize it was a white cream sauce and I don't like that, doesn't sit well... More
