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

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

This restaurant is a must when you go visit St. John. It can get crowded so I recommend making a reservation. The food was amazing, almost as good as the view. The specialty drinks are also a must. Overall a great experience.

This is our second year enjoying a meal at Waterfront Bistro and again the experience did not disappoint. We had not made reservations, but they were able to squeeze us in at a corner table that had a wonderful view of the harbor. Our entrees were delicious as always and the Tiramsu was to die for!!! Highly recommend this wonderful... More

All was very nice and I would go there again but will pay close attention when I pay the bill as they double charged the tip which had been automatically added(could have been an honest mistake?). The waitress did fix it.
