After hearing tons of positive feedback from others about Blue Orchid, I had to try it out. I took my boyfriend there to celebrate his birthday and we had a great time. The drinks are yummy and the food is soooo good. The service was comforting, our server had great recommendations and was so personable. We'll be back and I'll... More

The Blue Orchid was recommended by friends. I made reservations both times I have been there. We gave ourselves extra time to roam the property and absorb the view. Food and service both were excellent. I would eat here again.

Got there too late to enjoy the view. Lobster dip - delicious! Sea bass was my favorite - amazing flavor! Awesome signature salad!

I ordered their lobster cioppino and was blown away - it was a mild spicy large bowel packed with seafood with half a lobster on top. It was fabuous! Not your usual Italian cioppino, but so much more delicious due to the seasonings. Truly a great restaurant!

I made a reservation well in advance for 8.30pm. We reached there at 8.25pm and didn't have anyone seat us till 9pm. When we asked our waitress about our reservation, she made a face and told us to wait at the bar. When we were seated, and started ordering, she said they were out of all their best dishes because...

The restaurant has limited tables, lovely interior and spectacular views. Definitely go during daylight hours so you can roam the small botanical garden and then have a front row seat for the sunset. Our 6pm reservation (arriving at 5:30pm) was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive. I had the pork tenderloin which according to the server was a signature... More

We were back again this year to this wonderful restaurant in the hills above St Thomas. Great food, service, ambience and wine list. Reasonable prices for an expensive island. Try the rack of lamb, very good preparation. Interesting wine list for being at the end of the supply chain. Try a wonderful Chinon a bargain at $30.

The atmosphere and food are wonderful but as you would expect the pricing is pretty high. Good place for a special occasion.

We've eaten there once, wasn't memorable at all. Read a review that they updated it, so we decided to give it another try. We like to sit at the bar and eat, the bartender is so unfriendly that we didnt even eat this time! He was the bartender the first visit as well. We like friendly staff and atmosphere. This... More
