It was great to sit outside and admire the panoramic view and sunset. However, for what it was, the food was expensive and disappointing. The house focaccio bread basket was sparse and spongey, and little like any focaccio I used to enjoy when living in...Milan. The olive oil was thin and bland, and the table salt shaker I reached for was ineffective. My starter (mushroom and goat's cheese millefeuille with pesto sauce) was warm on top but suspiciously chilled at the base, and the pesto overpowered the dish completely. My main course (veal with lemon potato puree and veggies) was a let down: the veal was sliced far too thinly such that the only taste and texture that came through were the fried breadcrumbs. The best thing about the dish was the mashed potato with its faint citron message. The accompanying vegetables, however, were indelicately prepared and tasteless. My chocolate and raspberry cake dessert special was more a brownie stodge with no fruit about it. My wife had Caesar salad, which would have been better with shaved parmesan than grated cheese. There were no croutons - only two cold and hard (rather than crispy) slices of fried focaccio. Her well-done Black Angus tenderloin was "fine" and, if I recall correctly, accompanied by oven-roasted baby potatoes and a tasty jus. This was our first visit to Magnolia, to celebrate our wedding anniversary, after five years on island - having presumed it was still closed due to the effects of Hurricane Irma. The restaurant is poorly signposted from the main road, and would also do well to reinstate a lighted pathway up from the Turtle Cove bend. While we may return at some point for drinks, since the view is its unique selling point, we would be very reluctant to dine here again.More

We stayed in a nearby airbnb and came here for dinner one night. Too bad we missed the views that everyone raves about. The appertisers (goat cheese and mushroom strudel, escargot) were delicious! However we thought that our main entrees were somewhat disappointing. My husband...had the miso seared tuna and the sauce tasted bland and honestly a bit burnt (from the roux). My lemongrass curry grouper was tasty, but there wasn’t enough sauce and the vegetables were just plainly steamed. You are definitely paying at the higher price point for the location and atmosphere here, so adjust your expectations, or come here for the wine bar during the day instead.More

If there’s one place you need to go on your trip, it’s here. Not only is the food incredible, but the atmosphere is unreal. This restaurant overlooks the marina and the ambiance is amazing. The staff is kind, attentive and just very nice. Sesame tuna...is a must get- it could be the best sesame crusted tuna I’ve ever had. If you can get lobster, get that as another option. I love this restaurant and definitely would come again.More

Hmmm, where do I start, from the moment you arrive at Magnolia, you know you are somewhere really special. As if the most beautiful location wasn't enough to make your night special, wait until you meet the staff. On top of that, the food was...cooked perfectly, I have to give this chef ten stars from the taste of the salad dressing to the coconut cream pie. I cannot wait to visit again in the future.More

We visited Magnolia on August 9th for dinner at sunset. We have been there on our previous trips and always book reservations an hour before sunset because of the stunning views! Make sure you ask for a table by the rail. My wife always insists...that we go there for the Sesame Tuna; she says it’s the best on the island. I can't argue. I had the chocolate cake for dessert and my wife had the coconut cream pie. Both were incredible. If you are looking for good food and spectacular views, Magnolia is the place to visit!More

When we arrived we were whisked to out table without a warm greeting or even an indication that we were anything but dollar sign tourists. An attempt, by us, to be friendly with the owner/hostess fell on humorless ears. The food is good...not great...but the...atmosphere is stuffy and unwelcoming. The view of the harbor is beautiful. The sunsets are hit or miss. This place lacks warmth and character. It's just a place to eat. In the following months of our visit I learned that many ex-pats feel the same way as we did about this restaurant. Find a more amusing and interesting place to eat. There are many.More

We ate here around sunset as a family. I felt like I was in the Greek Isles. The view, the cliff, the crystal blue water, it was all just breathtaking. Then the sunset. Amazing. Add to this that the food was delicious and so beautiful!...I have a gluten intolerance and they easily accommodated this dietary need.More

We had a wonderful dinner of Rack of Lamb and Tuna. Both were prepared well, but the Lamb was a little overpowered with the mustard sauce/glaze it was prepared with. Came here for Lobster, but the season closed early. This really disappointed us.

Our reservations were for the only night it rained, so we weren't able to view the sunset. Lovely setting and great service.

Great food. My husband’s favorite is the tuna. Good wine. Wonderful specials. A wonderful view of Turtle Cove. Magnolias is a must when you visit the island!

Most anywhere on the island is casual. Shorts and jeans are fine with a polo or nice t-shirt.
