“I tend to disagree”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Perhaps we visited on a off night, have been sampling food all bout town looking for a favorite and am not exactly sure on what these people are thinking

I ordered the pork sandwich, ate half, and when asked how i enjoyed my dinner i lifeted the other half and said that it is ok i will take it home and put some meat on it since i did some pork roast the other day, got sneared at and treated rudly the rest of the night.. there were 6 extremly tiny pices of meat surrounded by a mass of peppers and onions, i was tempted to go and buy a subway for $5 and hand it to the manager for comparison..

My significant other ordered one of thier "specialties" the prime rib, rare.. i found it difficult to comprehend, a seared in frypan till is was scourched piece of cow flesh, had they called it a steak i may have cut them some slack and again not being afraid i questioned them, again huge defense like i had no idea what i was talking about.

nice atmosphere with exception of management snearing at me every time i seen him as if i insulted him, perhaps i did some people are sensative, my feedback has always been greatly appreatiated at other estabishments

staff we're very friendly i must say and it is a beautiful restuarant

crisp steak, bun with peppers, 2 mixed drinks and 2, 1/2 liters of wine $120

should have waited at bella jacks for 30 min's to get table, not comfortable but food is outstanding

“Room for improvement.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

Pros: Good food. Friendly staff.
Cons: Slow service. Small portions for the price.

If you see a large party being served; expect to be ignored in the friendliest way possible.

“Great for groups!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

A group of us met up here before going to a church auction and thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The service was fast and the food was good.

“Enjoyed the Food and Service...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Enjoyed the food and service, but not the lack of ventilation from the open kitchen. We had the lingering strong smell of the restaurant on our clothes and jackets when we left.

Staff is friendly and attentive and the location is great in central downtown St Thomas.
