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... read more

The pasta dish was delicious and the fried chicken was somewhat disappointing as we were served three chicken legs! However, the courses were perfectly timed and our server Erin was excellent. The cheese tray appetizer is a meal in itself and don't pass up the cheese cake for dessert. If you want a view of Megan's Bay, this is the... More

I do not think there is one item on the menu that I do not like. Everything is delicious. I come here ALL THE TIME. I am so impressed with everything. The service, the food, the atmosphere. It's all amazing. The fireplace really completes the whole place. I have to say though, my top 3 favorite menu items are the... More

Tom and his crew did a great job keeping the drinks and the food coming on a timely basis. Most restaurants drop the ball on big tables but these guys did it right. Had the rack of lamb...perfect. The birthday boy had a double of the rack of lamb. There was nothing on his plate at the end. Great wine... More

My Dark and Stormy was made with something other than ginger beer. Sea Bass was had too much lemon and salt. Wedge salad was not a whole wedge and not crisp. The view promised by the concierge at Marriott Frenchman's Cove did not exist. Had to go to roof deck to see Magen's Bay, which was nice. Entire property is... More

The ambience was exceptional, the grounds were beautiful, and sunset was breath-taking. Because the meals were gourmet, and I don't care for that, the menu was limited. After talking with our server about how I wanted my meal prepared, I was confident it would be fine. I chose the lemon dill salmon. Unfortunately the lemon over-powered the salmon and the... More

As long-time island residents who enjoy dining out, my husband and I are acquainted with most of the better dining establishments on St. Thomas. Far and away, Blue Orchid is at the top of our "favorites" list for quality of food, service and overall dining experience. Chef Sally knows her way around a kitchen and has created a wonderful menu... More

Our second time back to this restaurant and the food is great, the staff is always friendly and the view is spectacular. Great place for a romantic dinner. Go early and ask for a window seat to enjoy the view of the North end overlooking Megan's Bay.

This restaurant was highly recommended to us and the drive around sunset was spectacular. We arrived and walked around the beautiful garden area and walked up to the top for an amazing view. The inside was lovely with dark wood and big windows. I had the baked sea bass, which was perfectly prepared. Wine prices weren't too bad and the... More

We just came back from St. Thomas. We had never been to the Blue Orchid but everyone kept recommending it so we tried it. We got there by cab (the roads are scary) as the sun was going down and the view is one of the best in St. Thomas. The food from beginning to end was all over the... More
