Nice atmosphere and great steel drum music in the background tonight. Very competent and attentive waiter. Really like the stacked eggplant appetizer (husband hates eggplant...but ate half of it...). Husband really like his filet mignon and I thought the lobster ravioli was pretty great too. Our best meal visiting St. John this year.

We made short-notice lunch reservations for a party of 15 for our "wedding reception". The service was outstanding. The food was great. They even set up a table for our wedding cake and served it. I love the atmosphere of this restaurant.

this place is the one to go to for a special night with great food. All their seafood is fresh- the Ahi Tuna was spectacular. Husband had a cheeseburger and it was awesome. Beaufiul setting with open-air but definitely has an upscale touch. Nice live music- a perfect evening

We got early dinner reservation, about 6:30 pm. The place was just getting started with a few people dinning there. I was impressed with the stone wall, brick flooring and paintings on the wall. The place had a great feel to it. We ordered bottle of wine, two appetizers, one entree, one dessert and sampled each dish one at the... More

We go out to eat at as many fine dining places in St. John that we can. This one is a repeat for us! It was outstanding. Service was excellent and food was absolutely fabulous! We'll be back.

Excellent place to eat. Awesome atmosphere designed by someone with a lot of class and attention to detail. Loved the open courtyard, the beautiful masonry, the tiles on the floor, and the palm trees that were emerging from various places in the restaurant. We went to dinner on a Monday night and there was a guy playing the steel drums... More

Great food and location. We went back twice in the week that we stayed in St. John. It is located in the Mongoose shopping area. They have music some nights and a nice bar.
