Good quesadillas, terrible service

Aside from the hostess it was very polite and prompt, the service was not so good. However, the sunset views were to die for, and the beer was cold.

Having been here before, we arrived a few minutes before the restaurant was open for lunch, and settled into an umbrella shaded space, with a spectacular Caribbean view, on the upper deck. At restaurant opening, our server approached cautiously: "Good morning!" we said in Caribbean custom. "How are you today?" Server broke into a lovely broad smile and chatted with... More

We are 4 couples staying in a villa on St John. We wanted to see the resort and have lunch at the grill. I should have known something was wrong right away when I went up to the bar and ordered a couple of drinks from a bored robotic bartender. No greeting or smile. We waited about 45 minutes to...

We sat outside so we could see the boats on the water as we sipped pina coladas (with a lot of pineapple) and ate our lunch. Really quite lovely all around!

My friends and I stopped here for lunch. Lovely spot, terrific service, and great food. We got there a little late, and although they were preparing to close, they accommodated all 8 of us with a smile. If you are a sushi lover try the Washington Roll, so good.!

We stopped in for lunch, walking over from honeymoon beach. The place is really nice and lunch was good. Staff were very friendly. A plus was that the dining area is open-air, but covered, which allowed us to escape an afternoon shower!

Sorry that this review will now be brief since Tripadvisor has done it again; deleted the entire review I had just written. Very good food, fresh and well prepared. Good sized sushi menu as well. Pleasant setting in this comfortable, open air restaurant at the Caneel Bay resort. Staff quite friendly; service was mixed and confusing; neither the staff nor... More

The service and food are great, and no reservations required. So if you're staying at Caneel Bay this is the place to eat. Can't get into ZoZo's without a reservation a week in advance and Turtle Bay is more expensive, but the food here is just as good.

We ate at the Caneel Bay grill a number of times during our stay at Caneel Bay. This restaurant serves lunch, dinner, plus the food service to the beach and room service as well. We tried many items and all were great. The sushi is very good. The problem though is if you go to eat between 6:30pm and 8... More

We had both lunch and dinner here a few times during our recent vacation at Caneel Bay Resort. The sandwiches and salad available for lunch were uniformly both very good and quite generous. The dinner selections were more variable. I had some wonderful ribs one night, but my wife had fish twice there and both times she didn't think it... More
