What a beautiful view and a delicious meal! Our group of six adults had a spectacular dinner here during our week long visit to St. John. We are so glad we did not miss this lovely location or delicious food! Our tongues were dancing as were a few of the patrons who enjoyed to recorded music. The sesame encrusted goat... More

We ordered just an appetizer of crab cakes to munch on while watching the sunset from the neighboring look out point. Crab cakes (while pricy...$24 for 2 cakes) were delicious! Lots of crabmeat, very little filler. Came served over seaweed salad (which we both love) and with a sauce on the side. Very glad we tried them!

Went for our wedding anniversary and was blown away by the service and wonderfully tasty food. They had flowers in my table and a glass of champagne was served as soon as we arrived. Definitely a repeat for 2014.

Been to St John 4x, never eaten here. Kicking myself. This place rocks! From the view, service, super staff, to the food, I have never been so impressed all around with a restaurant. I had the best ribs I have ever eaten (or made), and I am a ribs connoisseur. My wife's shrimp and grits were also excellent. This place... More

The food was fabulous! Asian fusion twist on southern cooking. I had the baby back ribs and sweet and sour collard greens. Make sure and get there for the sunset.

The first time we went it was my husband, a friend and myself. We had burrata stuffed with ricotta for an appetizer which was so creamy and delicious. For entrees, we all had different things and I had the sesame, pepper crusted tuna that was to die for. We learned about the special drink "Catch and Keep" and my husband... More

Do not miss this lovely restaurant perched high above Cruz Bay. The view of the lights in the harbor below and on distant St. Thomas would alone warrant a visit, and luckily the food does as well. While the cuisine was described as Asian fusion, it seemed more creative American to us. We observed that several of the offerings we... More

What a special dinner our family had at Asolare! It was our last night on St. John and we wanted to have a memorable evening and it was! For the five of us (three adults/an older teen and a young 20s), we each selected something different and loved each item. The shrimp and grits were very good - very rich... More

The food was delicious and the view is great. The restaurant is easy to find right before the Virgin Islands National Park if driving from town, and there's free parking. Friendly staff and really great bar to visit before your meal. Only downside is it's a bit pricey, but so are most things on the island.

We must be the minority here, but my husband and I really didn't care for the food! We started with crab cakes which were great. Overpowering spices used in both of our main dishes. I had the shrimp and grits - The shrimp was good and the grits were cheesy and okay for a few bites. Not a fan of... More
