“Molto Bene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Hands down the best meal we ate on St. John! Reserved two chairs at the upstairs bar which offers an amazing view of the water and St. Thomas. Excellent wine and appetizers (bruschetta), salads, and seafood (we had snapper and mahi mahi). The bar staff was hopping early, but once the crowd died down a bit, they were extremely attentive. I couldn't imagine coming to St. John and not eating here. A truly excellent experience!

“Awesome food, awesome bar/lounge; service could be better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

The upstairs bar/lounge is the best place on the island for sunset, but the service up there is a bit disinterested and they didn't serve ANY food up there (unless you were ordering dinner at the bar itself), even when there was a 2 hour wait for dinner (which is typical on the weekends in highs season). Downstairs, the decor is mediocre but the food is excellent. Warning - the meals were undersized and overpriced. The gnocchi app is amazing, but way too small.

“Ehhh ... pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Better restaurants on St John for the $$. I will say it does have a great sunset view from the bar upstairs!

“Perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our most favorite special place to eat on the island - and still is. Three of us ate up at the bar for an awesome sunset(though we did miss Carlos). Jarrod is an excellent replacement. We all ordered different fresh fish dishes, sampled each others and each felt that theirs was THE BEST! Hard to argue with that. Fresh bronzini , pink snapper and shrimp were our choices but there are several others. We are going back to get the Osso Bucco again tomorrow. Still looking for something that is not perfection there. And yes it is pricey but definitely worth it.

“Great views, Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Make a reservation to sit at the bar and watch the sunset, you will be glad you did! We had amazing drinks and fantastic meal on our last night in St John. The menu is a little pricey (compared to most St John restaurants) but ZoZo's is completely worth it!
