We had been here 3 yrs ago and had a wonderful experience. This time we took our teenage children to experience. Had read that there was new management and new chef and that it wasn't as good. So glad we went anyway. It was just as wonderful and beautiful as years ago. The staff was attentive and helpful. Our food... More

With so many other restaurants in town to choose from, other than another lovely view, this one is not worth the trip up the hill. The food was good, but you can get just as good, or better, elsewhere (like Morgan's Mango, or the Terrace). The killer for me was the service. There was one waitress who smiled in the... More

Have dined here on every trip to St. John. The view is unmatched. Service is excellent. Food was very expensive with a limited menu but very good. I had the Shrimp and Grits and it was superb. They take reservations but no one there to answer the phone until late afternoon.

This Asian-fusion restaurant is a perfect way to end a visit to this island. Jay Mitt Kidd, the executive chef, is very creative. The sauces are some of the best I've had. The view of Cruz Bay harbor are amazing. Limited seating so make your reservation in advance!

A stone cottage smashed on a hillside with breathtaking views of Cruz Bay and the sunset? Yes, please! We arrived early for our reservation to enjoy the sunset, and Hillary took great care of us at the bar. Drinks and apps were fantastic. Once seated, we were treated to personal, attentive service. Our waitress had great knowledge of the entrees,... More

After coming to Asolare four times in the last decade, we know better to reserve a table for the amazing sunset. Our timing was perfectly right and it was just spectacular. We remember Asolare being a highlight of our previous St. John trips, but sadly it isn't the case anymore. (Confirmed later that evening that there is a new chef).... More

We have visited St. John annually for the past 14 years and always give Asolare a try because of the beautiful view of Cruz Bay and St. Thomas. This restaurant is consistently inconsistent. Some years the food has been outstanding, yet others years were less satisfactory. The quality of the experience is related to the talent of the chef, which... More

My husband and I celebrated our fifth anniversary on St. John and Asolare was our "treat to ourselves" dinner. We mistakenly booked a reservation for 8 p.m. (well past the glorious sunset), so we showed up early and sat in the bar to catch the sunset. We loved the bartender, Kim, and decided that we'd prefer to just eat right... More

We've been going to St. John for just over a decade and always try to make our way to Asolare. It has always been a highlight to enjoy sunset, cocktails and delicious food. This year was no exception. I was fearful this year hearing about the bad reviews in the past, and even a waitstaff at another restaurant telling us... More

Asolare sits high on the hill above Cruz Bay and faces the sunset. The food is creative and there is something for all tastes. It is not inexpensive, but you get delicious food and drinks that seem well worth the expense (and did I say you get a beautiful view?). We went three times when on St. John this winter!
