Should have know better than to order Nachos on the islands. Stick to what they do best. Seafood! Right on the beach in Cruz Bay. Wonderful view of the boats moored in the bay.

The food was good, the view was even better. The service was nice. We had filets and bisque. The food was above average, but there was not much in the way of local favor or selections.

We had to wait a bit to be seated, which was fine as they really do not run you out of your dining until you are done. We had a late seating so we had no worries about taking too much time. The crab crepes were out of the world! The scallops were cooked to perfection! The meal was my... More

The only reason I give this restaurant 2 star is the setting and a nice waiter· We ordered starters that were good and ask a staff about their special cocktail from a year before,champagne with passion fruit. It was amazing a year before, this time not so much, it was champagne with a passion fruit syrup that was sitting on... More

We ate dinner at Ocean 362 and it was a wonderful experience. Ocean 362 offers a spectacular view of the sunset and islands, because it sits high on a hill over the water. The service provided by Nancy and Hart was great and she is so knowledgeable about the food and wine list. Nancy and Hart waited on us as... More

My family of 6 went there last night and we're very much satisfied! The service was great! The prices were as good of prices your going to get on saint John. Overall I would come back for a nice calm ocean dinner with the family

Experience was so good on our first dinner, we went back the next day to have dinner at the bar. Bartenders are awesome and Peter at the host stand made sure the evening was great. Food was the best in all of our St John dining experiences.

Such a pretty place, just off the ferry dock. The Mister had a very good steak with frites, I the risotto with ratatouille. I wish they'd have told me the risotto was actually going to be wheat berries instead of Arborio rice (I'd have ordered it anyway!) but a clever combination. Fine dining has come a long way in Cruz... More

This place stuck with me. Sit at the bar during the day and enjoy the beautiful view with absolutely delicious drinks and amazing food. There is nothing like it. I kept the business card from this place in my wallet for 2 years until I could visit again. Unforgettable experience and a must hit when on the island. The people... More

We were walking around the waterfront shopping arer & decided to grab a quick, casual lunch. We found the Waterfront Bistro close by & really enjoyed sharing lunch while sitting right by Cruz Bay ferry harbor. My wife & I shared the steak tacos which were very good. We also had the freshly cooked potato chips which we were very... More
