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

Not sure on the other review but we went on the Friday after Christmas, service was great and the staff was all very friendly. Arrived early for an 8:30 dinner so we walked around the partially lit gardens which was a nice way to pass the time. Once seated we had fast service with the food coming out in a... More

Christmas eve special diner was the worst meal I have had anywhere in years. The Prime Rib was cold, the baked potato hard as a rock, and the crab cake was shredded crab with mostly filler. Without question the worst on the Island. They should be ashamed. Save your money - go to Mahagony Run for an excellent filet.

Good Day John R. from St Thomas. It was unfortunate that you had a problem with your dinner on Christmas Eve. Our Prime Rib is one of our more popular dishes, receiving many, many compliments, including several Christmas Eve. The Crab Cakes are almost all Crab, mixed with peppers, onions, spices....way off base on this one. But to be fair... More

$10 cab ride and no lunch. Nice view. Not worth the cab ride. There are some gardens. The dinner would have to be spectacular. To justify the cab ride.

I doned at this testaurant last night and enjoyed a delectable meal; great presentation. The chef is Sally who has served the island successfully for years (Craig &Sally). Doug was an exemplary server and Tom's sommelier expertise was much appreciated. Great experience.
