The Himalayan salt block grilling was something I had read about in the trendy food articles about Stateside restaurants. Very excited to see it locally at Virgin Fire. Something new to try! It exceeded my expectations. I was able to cook my proteins as I liked them, anddthe shrimp, beef, and tuna were all moist and delicately seasoned. Everything was... More

Tried to visit a few times during the season and there was always a wait. Managed to eat there in August for my wife's birthday and it was worth the wait. Service was outstanding as was the dinner and dessert. Beautiful setting in what i would have to call one of the "coolest" malls i have seen at Mongoose Junction.... More

This actually was my favorite meal of our trip, but my husband was just the opposite. My tuna was cooked perfectly and wasn't overdone with sauce. My husband had the Mahi Mahi and his was overcooked and tough. You win some and you lose some. Nice balcony, looking down on town, with fans for a nice breeze.

We initially went for the 1/2 priced apps, but they were so good and service was so fun and professional, we stayed for dinner. The fresh mahi and tuna were to die for and the Himilayan salt black was creative and delicious!

Our party of six wanted a nice place to eat on our last night on St. John. My wife and I had been to St. John many times and wanted to try some place new. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and reasonable for the island. The service was good and the food was better than expected. I... More

We ended up walking out of the restaurant before we ordered any food so I am not sure how helpful this review will be. This location has housed so many different restaurants and we have tried each. The theme of this restaurant is fire and ice. We had been snorkeling early so we hit the restaurant as it opened. Every... More

Thanks for the heads up. Most people find the place comfortable, and sorry you didn't. We will review our seating policies with staff and be sure that we are promptly greeting and serving people. Virgin Fire has a tendency to have a number of reservations for 7 pm and thereabouts, which causes the tables you mention to appear to not... More

Overall the food we had was good. My wife and I both had the ribs which tasted good - the BBQ was very tasty and the portion size was more than adequate. We also had a Shrimp and Spring Roll appetizers which were OK - not the best we have had but no complaints as they were 1/2 off for... More

Sorry, I wasn't impressed. The food was average and I was appalled at what they charged for a high-ball-sized glass of tea. I wouldn't put it on my "must visit" list. I was expecting more in terms of quality of food for the price, not average.

Thanks for the review and wish you had enjoyed it more. For clarity, the price of an iced tea ($2.50) includes unlimited refills, so the size of the glass isn't related to the value. However, we can and will use a larger glass for the convenience of our guests. We are very sincere in our efforts and work diligently with... More

This restaurant is located near shopping and close to the harbor. It is beautifully appointed, has friendly staff and a decent happy hour. Loved the fish and chips and sliders, but would pass on the Jambalaya (bland). For those of you who have kids, they also offer family movies one night a week, which is kind of cool since there...
