Better than expected!

View alone was worth it, but the meal was absolutely amazing. Our server, Erin, was attentive and offered great service. We brought our 9&11 yr old boys and she graciously offered kid friendly options. Go early to visit the observation deck and bird conservatory. Much more than we expected!

I blame the concierge at the Marriott for this restaurant not meeting my expectations. I did not realize there is no outdoor dining. I even asked that the concierge request a table outside. Not the restaurants fault though. Yes, there is a beautiful view from high above megan's bay, but it really isn't a panoramic view due to all the... More

The views from the restaurant are fantastic; Magen's Bay, the outer islands... gorgeous. Our waitress took our drink order, delivered them, took our app order and sent us out to view the bay and outer islands with our drinks and to visit the aviary of parrots and other tropical birds while our apps were being prepared and before the sun...

Was not disappointed, great again! Beautiful view and great place to have a drink on the deck, overlooking the bay, enjoying the Caribbean breeze with friends! Will be back next year! The portions are big, for smaller appetites, share and get an appetizer and dessert!

The sea bass is outstanding as were the crab cakes. It is a delightful place with surrounding botanical gardens and an historic setting. It has been rebuild after destruction by Hurricane Hugo in 1989. The view is outstanding, the restaurant setting and atmosphere are super and the service was very good.

Fantastic view overlooking Megan's Cove. Beautiful! Delicious sea bass and short ribs. Get there before sunset, grab a drink at the bar and stroll the gardens amongst tropical foliage, cockatoos & macaws. This was once the corporate retreat of Johnson & Johnson Company. Great history. Winding & twisting roads to get there but worth the trip.

This place rocks! We heard there is a new young chef working there that is creative and talented. This young man is just incredible I started with the ahi tuna served three ways. Oh my God! The other people in our party had the oysters or the pate (made in house) or the mahi ceviche. Devine! For my main course... More

Blue Orchid is a great restaurant. I have gluten and dairy allergies and they happily worked around them to give me a delicious meal. If you have any food issues, I would highly recommend them. Great service. Fun atmosphere. Go early to see the botanical garden, aviary and spectacular view! The bar is also nice- not a hot spot- not... More

We were in St Thomas for a week and had gone out every night. This was our last night and it was by far the best dinner of our vacation. The inside of the place was very warm and comfortable. The staff quite friendly and professional. The warm bread was an excellent start and they had a good selection of... More
