We were on a budget, didn't get going until about 8pm that night. Rolled up at Savant expecting to be told they were shutting down. That's where the story of the best meal of our lives begins....
Immediately upon arriving, I needed to use the restroom. We started in the courtyard, and I was directed to use the bathroom in the main restaurant. Once inside, I sent a text to my BF that we needed to eat in the ambiance of the courtyard. The server was so friendly, warm and welcoming. We started with grilled calamari. So unique! Great flavor. Way too much to eat. Ordered wine that was priced great. Then, the magic happened.
He ordered Mahi pastry, I ordered the famed Stuffed Filet.
Can't even put in words what happened next, but I'll try.
Delight. Incredible fusion of favors that shouldn't work, but do. I remember telling the server (and later the chef) that I was SO full, but wanted to literally ROLL AROUND IN WHAT WAS LEFT ON MY PLATE.
That good. Oh my gosh. I would travel to St Croix just to eat at Savant.
We have been home now for 1 night and have talked about that meal as quite possiblly the pinnacle, the Mecca of our dining lives. As world travelers it was such an unexpected happening. I highly recommend this restaurant. I don't write reviews often, but The Savant deserves to be known as a true gem. Incredible. Just fabulous all the way around. Eat in the courtyard. As the servers what they are eating tonight. The chef here cares what you like. I can not WAIT to get back to The Savant. Gonna have to work another year for a vacation, but this restaurant and the awesome food will weigh heavily on my future travel plans. St Croix's finest!!
