WE FOUND the waterfront bistro to be more upscale then the surrounding bar restaurants for the sunset dinner experience. Very good service with good food. The bar was nice and much less crowded with heavy drinking etc.

Love this restaurant. WE have eaten here numerous times over several trips and the food / service is always consistent. Love the mahi and mashed potatoes and bar drinks are very good. I would recommend reservations!

this is a great restaurant right at the shore in Cruz Bay. The food is very good and the staff eager to please. We always sit at the bar if we can and this time was no exception, the Husband and Wife team were great with menu and wine suggestions. The food was great, we had the scallops which were... More

Great atmosphere & right in the water. The food was pretty regular, nothing special or creative about it & over priced for its value. Bar drinks same Idea. Great service. Thank You to our waitress Nicole!!

We had been eating bar food all week, so we were looking forward to some finer dining. The food was delicious and the service was great. The short ribs were so good as was dessert.

Next time there we had filet mignon and sea scallops. So good. For dessert we had their homemade ice cream. Delicious! Great spot for a relaxing dinner on... More

Dined here last Tuesday evening with my husband and parents for my birthday while on vacation. Excellent service and food was awesome. I made reservations about 2 hours before dinner, and we had only a small wait before being seated. Great view, only it was already after dark, wish we had seen sunset! Will definitely return. Fantastic location among the... More

Our dinner at The Waterfront Bistro was an exceptional dining experience! Reservations are recommended; ask for a table on the rail for a PERFECT sunset view!! We started our dinner with mojitos and the arugula and roasted beet salad. The shaved fennel, pistachios and gorgonzola was a perfect blend of flavors. Our entree was pan seared halibut with asparagus -... More

We always enjoy a table on the rail at Waterfront Bistro. Just a short stroll from Gallows Point. Their escargot in garlic/butter is excellent - with extra rolls of bread to sop it all up! My wife always gets their rib eye with frites (really good hand cut parmesan truffle fries), and my filet mignon was served perfectly rare. Food,... More
