We had the Mac and cheese - awesome, the butter lettuce salad- awesome, grouper special - awesome and pasta for 1 - pretty good. They were short on wine selection due to a previous... read more

I don't write reviews unless the experience is over-the-top fabulous or horrendous beyond belief. Unfortunately this was the latter. This restaurant was simply maddening. They got absolutely nothing right. As a party of six out to celebrate the holidays on Dec. 28th our arrival was greeted by the averted eyes of the wait staff. After an awkward few minutes we...

It appears that this once lovely restaurant has changed hands and is now being operated by people who don't know what they are doing...they have kept the recipes from the previous owners but don't execute them well and the service is so bad it is almost comical....don't waste your time or money here...it will make you grumpy!

Mediocre, overly salted food. Excellent cocktail. Worst service imaginable (to our request for a wine list, the waitress said ," we don't have one, but if you tell me what you want, I'll get it for you!") It took 1 hour and 45 minutes to get our food (mostly just appetizers). They comped dessert as an apology, which we didn't... More

This restaurant was my favorite for past 5 years. Always fresh and interesting menus. I had dinner there last week. Portions are so small now and very expensive. We ordered mussels, Mac and cheese as well as special Chimichurri sauce stake dinner. Food was okay but not special. I make better at home. Server did not deserve tip. Wine poured... More

I am surprised this place is not higher rated in Christiansted restaurants. It deserves to be. We ate there on a Friday. On some nights the music is loud, but the guitarist that night had a good level. Its a smaller main room, so when a loud talker comes in that's my only problem with the place! The hostess should...

Between the music being too loud to hear yourself think, the inattentive waitress and the appetizer sized portions this place absolutely did not live up to its hype. For the price of food here the service and quality should be much better.

I'll start out with the negative. It is hard for me to convince my wife to go here very often, because it's kind of in the middle of nowhere. Certainly doesn't have the view that some great Saint Croix restaurants offer. Once inside, however, the ambience is nice. Having said all of that, I find it to be the best... More

Had the tapas for app the grouper special for dinner then followed by the chocolate sushi and house made gelato. Most items are made in house and Tuesday's are BOGO... More

We love Salud, especially on Spanish night, buy l bottle of wine, get one free, wonderful music and the best macaroni and cheese I have ever had. Great menu including lamb, goat and paella. Our server was Cerese and she is awesome. She also works at Angry Nate's on Sunday. Can't wait to go back for more of the Truffle... More
