Our family of 6---all adults---had an excellent experience at Virgin Fire last week. The remodeled space is very attractive and features beautiful stonework, a high ceiling, an outdoor porch, and lovely artwork by well-known St. John artist, Kim Boulon. My own view is that this is more of an "upscale casual" place as opposed to fine dining, but everyone has a different view of this. We went on Monday night when Rich Greengold and his trio play jazz---this adds tremendously to the ambience and may affect my view. If you like jazz, please stop by on Monday.We had several apps including crispy spring rolls, coconut shrimp and ceviche---all excellent. Cocktails were creative and mostly excellent, though I my daughter thought the white wine sangria was too sweet and fruity (she is used to mine, which is much less sweet). Pricing on the cocktails was on the high side, but pricing on wine was VERY reasonable. We enjoyed a bottle of Conundrum (white blend) for $36----this is a bargain since it is generally $22 in my liquor store at home. My Jamaican Jerk Porterhouse was nicely spiced, flavorful and huge. My wife had the Josephine's Greens with Grilled Shrimp added. It was light and exactly what she wanted, was reasonably priced, and it was nice to enjoy greens from the only organic farm on St. John. Others enjoyed the mahi-mahi and the churrasco steak---everyone seemed happy. Key Lime Tart for dessert was good, though not the best we have had. It was a delightful evening and we would definitely return.Contrary to other reports, I thought the pricing was quite reasonable and our total bill was almost the same as at Rhumb Lines the night before (another one of our favorites). Service was casual but very good.Best of luck to the owner.
