“Great choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

If you are going to dine anywhere in Cruz bay, dine here. The outrageous prices of Spyglass or surrounding restaurants match the price but not the quality or view that you will receive here! I would highly recommend Asolare. It's close to town, has delicious food and the best view in the house. Make sure you have reservations.

“Unbeatable View and Outstanding Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I visited during the off season, so the restaurant wasn't very crowded and could accommodate two of us without reservations. The view is amazing, as other reviewers have mentioned, but the food is also outstanding, possibly the best on island. The only draw-back we found was that we visited one night to find an outstanding barkeep, a woman who knew her craft front to back, but on the second night visiting we found a new bartender who was slow and unapologetic. It slightly cramped the mood and I can imagine it would have really soured people's opinion had they never been to the restaurant prior to that night, but we knew better and I am only removing one bubble for the flux of bar staff. If you have the pleasure of visiting, always order the specials, they were amazing both nights we visited.

“Our best meal in St. John”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

This was our fifth visit to St John and Asolare has never disappointed! Had tuna over cool greens ,pork chop, and beef dish.All three were phenomenal! In fact this was the only dinner we had all week where every entree was outstanding in its own style. Rum punch is best I've ever had (with all of the real fruit juices). Enjoyed the summer spring rolls as well. Service was wonderful as well. Don't miss it!

“Fantastic experience and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We walked in without reservations and were quickly shown a table with drop dead gorgeous sunset views of Cruz Bay and St Thomas. The staff were really very good and the food was excellent. It may get very busy in the busy season so I would recommend reservations because the restaurant is not very large but well worth it. Every meal was creative and delicious. We were a family of four but this would be a great place for a special dinner at sunset.

“Wonderful meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

A must on St. John. Outstanding food and amazing view. Great fish and made from scratch desserts. A small, quaint place with the bet views on the island. They even have free parking!
