We dined here on our annual trip to St. John. Our waiter and the setting were excellent. The food was very good with a nice wine list.

Our first visit was on January 10th and while my significant other doesn't necessarily like fish, he loved the Grouper. Our second visit we both opted for the rib eye and didn't feel the meal was quite as good. Great preparation on the fresh fish, steaks were just "ok".

Been coming to St. John for 8 years and our dinner was one of the best experiences. The grilled mahi was outstanding because the fennel slaw was perfect with this dish.

Go for it. So yummy, waterfront location and amazing service. The filet was amazing, but most menu items are. Make sure to make a reservation.

The menu was not as diverse in previous years but is was a nice dinner. It has a nice atmosphere and it is a must-go if you are staying a week or more.

Not the best on the Island but all was good. A bit pricey for the food but add in the view and it is worth it.

We decided we wanted to dine waterfront in Cruz Bay. There are many choices. We randomly picked the Bistro. Damn good choice. Great cocktails, salads and steaks. The ambiance and energy were romantic. Wait staff was knowledgeable, friendly and available. Next time on SJ we'll come back.
