Awesome restaurant

This is up the mountain a bit, but it's also on the botanical gardens grounds. Beautifully decorated restaurant, clean, with kind of a lodge feeling. Staff is friendly and nice. The food is prepared so well and flavorful here. They really did a great job.

Absolutely a wonderful experience. We celebrated my husband's birthday and it was a memorable evening. Claire took exceptional care of us during our meal and was quite helpful answering all of our questions and concerns. Hubs had Rack of Lamb and he enjoyed it, as the portion size was good (not the lollipop chops rather full size rack of lamb),... More

My wife made reservations before we left home for my milestone birthday dinner. It was all we could hope for and more. They sat us at a window table with a breathtaking view of Magens Bay with the British Virgin Islands in the distance. The food was fabulous: sea bass and the filet followed by mouth watering cheesecake. Our server,... More

I visited Blur Orchid with a large group so the restaurant was closed to the public. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the grounds where the restaurant is located. Just the walk to the front door was impressive. The view of Magen's Bay from the observation deck is gorgeous so try getting there just before sunset. As for the food... More

Try this place for a good evening out. The food was good, particularly the mussels. The service was excellent and a good wine selection

A beautiful, relaxing evening at The Blue Orchid! Restaurant. It is located in a restored Great House overlooking Magen's Bay! Go early and walk around the gardens first then enjoy a delicious meal in the restaurant. No view at night because the restaurant is on the north side of the island overlooking Magen's Bay. Excellent food and a great wine... More

Went early for drinks and appetizers and it was so good we decided to stay for dinner. That ended up being one of the best decisions we've ever made. Everyone's meal was amazing! If you're visiting St. Thomas don't miss this great restaurant. You won't be disappointed. It's a small dining room with excellent views, but the high quality food... More

Start with a walk thru the gardens and up to the observation deck. Breathtaking to look in every direction. The food was excellent and the service as well.

We caught a hazy sunset upstairs on the balcony. It was windy, but a great view of Magens Bay! Great cocktails! We didn't have dinner here, so can't comment on the food.

One of our favorites. Food excellent, views outstanding. Gardens worth a walk through. Go before sunset to catch views.
