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

Food o.k. a little overpriced. Seemed like they were already shut down for the season. Slim staff & wouldnt revisit.

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!

WB was recommended to us by a local for our 30th anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. We had filet mignon and scallops and both were the best food we had all week. Had the recommended special salad and recommended wine and both were a hit. Service was very personal and our waitress Nicole was excellent. Great ambience and... More

The service was quick and the food was delicious, very fresh seafood and exactly what I was looking for. The view was also breathtaking and gave us a first row seat to the island sunset.

This was our third trip to St. John in three years, but our first experience at Waterfront Bistro. The views were nice and the food was wonderfully prepared. If there was any area of improvement it could have been in the server. He was nice and knowledgeable. However, there were a couple times he stopped by our table, asking if... More
