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

Went to this restaurant after my boyfriend proposed to me at a beautiful overlook down the road. We were looking for a restaurant with a beautiful view and Asolare did not disappoint. The service and food were both excellent. Can't image going anywhere else in St.John to celebrate one of the best days of my life! My boyfriend had the... More

We visit Asolare every year but in the last two years a substantial change has taken place-it seems there is a new chef in town and perhaps a new "sherif" as well-the food is top notch and tremendously clever with great offerings for meat lovers , seafood seekers and vegetarians -there is now great value for a high end restaurant-you...

Dined at Asolare on our last night at St. John for our honeymoon. The food was excellent, service was prompt yet easy going, and the view of Cruz Bay at sunset was lovely. Foodies would be at home here with a blend of Asian fusion and Southern US flair. For those gentlemen wanting to plan a romantic dinner for their... More

We have spent both our 11th and now our 20th Wedding Anniversaries watching the sunset from the rail at Asolare. This place is always welcoming, beautiful and the food is outrageously good. We will continue to spend important moments at Asolare because the experience is unforgettable.

I would like to preface this with the fact that my review is entirely unsolicited and. I had one of the best meals of my life at Ansolare. This restaurant is not only amazing on the food and beverage front, but also an amazing experience in dining experience. Make a reservation and get there early for a cocktail in the... More

This would have been 5 stars but for the expensive price. But we know this and feel it is worth it to come here every year we are on St. John. First off he bar is lovely to sit and enjoy a special drink. Then the view is the best for sunset or at night looking at the lights on... More
