With tables overlooking the beach (right next to it) and food of outstanding quality, this is definitely somewhere to head to for a special occasion meal in Cruz Bay.

We have been enjoying the food and scenic view at Waterfront since it opened. We look forward to eating here every time we are on island. Fresh seafood or other dishes-- always prepared well.Service is great weather we have a large or small party. Bartenders are great too.

We have eaten there several times over the years and went back again on vacation this year. It is still excellent. The food is delicious, service is impeccable, and their entire staff makes you feel welcome. This place is run like all restaurants should be run. Prices are in line with other restaurants in St. John, but their food is... More

We are local virgin islanders who live on St. Thomas and decided to staycation over at Grande Bay Resort for our 1 year wedding anniversary. September 1st is a tough time for fine dining in Cruz Bay St John with many of the best restaurants closed for the low season. Luckily, for us we caught Waterfront Bistro on its last... More

Their food was really fantastic. Their Chicken Club Sandwich is amazing and the homemade chips were equally great.

Read my other reviews. I'm typically easy to please and favorable. Our dining experience here was the worst of all the places and times we've eaten on St. John. Neither my wife not I could stand to eat the Mahi Mahi she ordered. The crab smashed potatoes were fishy and the Mahi - which both of us usually enjoy -... More

We almost cancelled our dinner. We had decided on Waterfront Bistro for the view, and it was our anniversary, but it was pouring. We didn't get the sunset, heck, we couldn't see much past the beach, but we decided to stay. When I made the reservation weeks prior, I mentioned that it was our 5th Anniversary. They had our table... More

We ate at the Waterfront Bistro 3x the week we were there. The food, service and view are incredible. It was upscale and yet casual at the same time. I had halibut, mahi, and scallops, all delicious. Jonathon the bartender is awesome too. He's very friendly and makes great drinks!
