Went while on vaca in St. John's. Order the appetizer that is cooked by you on heated salt rock and comes with steak, shrimp and tuna. Sounds gimmicky by trut me worth the 12 bucks per person. Had the jambalaya which was good and filled with shrimp, chicken and 2 kinds of sausage. Others had tuna tartar which was great.... More

This is one of the newest dining establishments in Mongoose Junction, and is one you should not miss if visiting St. John. Open for dinner hours, the sunset timing adds to the mystique of the décor and location, which has balcony dining that provides views of Cruz Bay. Inside seating, with the great open arches, also allow you the outdoor... More

My husband and I dined at Virgin Fire while visiting St. John. We only ordered a few appetizers but they were delicious. The drinks were very tasty as well, and came from a friendly waitress. The music was relaxing to listen to as we overlooked the streets of St. John.

Great service, stellar food, unique and not quite like the other restaurants here. The Salt Block at 500 degrees is such a great way to enjoy shrimp, tuna, steak:-)!!! Will go back for sure...

Picture it: Friday afternoon, 4:00pm After a long week, we ended up at the bar at Virgin Fire. KC, our bar tender was quick with the wit, and the drinks. My husband and I love to cook. As a result, we order things we would not normally make at home. Also a result of cooking amazing food at home, we're... More

Now I understand that Virgin Fire had enormous shoes to fill by taking the space formerly occupied by the totally amazing La Plancha del Mar, but I did expect a lot more having visited their web site and read their menus. The staff is very welcoming and we had our favorite table outside overlooking the nightime scene downtown St. John,... More

Thanks, Davis Sorry you were disappointed and appreciate the sense of faith that we will overcome the growing pains. There are many things that La Plancha did well, but we are not La Plancha. I can relate to how good the Pork Belly Appetizer that they served-- that was something very unique, but our approach, or course, must differ. Glad... More

Let me start by saying that the server we had, who was very new, was AMAZING!! She is the only reason this didn't place didn't receive my first terrible review ever and instead got poor. She was very attentive, and happy which made the meal fun. 4 of us had dinner and drinks. They sat us at an amazing table... More

Hi Dustin Thanks for your review and we're glad that the service was amazing. Apparently, we missed the mark on the food, and we are sincerely apologetic that you did not enjoy aspects of it. We have already changed the menu and reworded the pork entree to "Bone In Pork Chop".... we've had this item a while and I agree,... More

We love Mongoose Junction so we were happy to try Virgin Fire. The FireFries were delicious...Cajun spiced fries with Bleu Cheese fondue dipping sauce. We both ordered sliders...mine were Paella (shrimp/chicken/andouille sausage) and my husband's were crab cakes. They were quite good! My husband grew up in Maryland and gave the crab cake rave reviews. Our waiter was great...good service,... More
