Just returned from our 6 day stay in St. Thomas for family vacation. While there, we enjoyed a delicious dinner at XO Bistro in Red Hook. Jules was our server and she was very attentive! The food was very tasty, and I'm glad we ate there. The only thing missing was a nice view of the island/water. But other than... More

We stopped by on our last day for lunch. Wish we had come sooner! Absolutely delicious - best food we had on the island. I had the special, a chicken sandwich on pita bread with their spinach, artichoke dip as a spread. The rest of my group had the Prime Rib sandwich. Very reasonably priced and tasty lunches. Everyone was... More

One of the better St Thomas chefs. Fresh, creative food and very good wine list. I will definitely put it in the rotation when I'm in St Thomas.

We had an amazing dinner here last night. The restaurant is small, so it's a good idea to make reservations. I had the jerk chicken special and my husband the steak special. Both were excellent. The service was friwndly and good. An excellent choice for dinner in Red Hook.

The setting is more upscale, but it's got a bit of a bar vibe. The food this time was ok, but we've had good food in the past. Sometimes you have an off night and we were ok with that. We will likely be back.

The meal was good but certainly nothing special. All of our dishes were very spicy and nothing was noted on the menu about spicy. We did not appreciate that the female servers were scantily dressed.

Seriously. This was the first meal we had on the island while on our honeymoon and we didn't find anything else in 11 days that compared to this food! And considering how expensive some other places were, this food was pretty reasonably priced. My husband and I split the sea scallops appetizer and the crab topped mahi. Both were to... More

We were recommended this place by a local who said it had her favorite food ever in Red Hook. It is styled nicely and is dark inside. We sat at the bar and ordered some drinks and dinner. I had the grilled chicken linguine pasta, which honestly, left a lot to be desired. The pasta was dry and my boyfriend... More

My husband and I popped in here after snorkeling because we heard so much about this place. It is nothing too fancy but they had a great lunch menu. We had a shrimp appetizer that was delicious and a chicken green apple sandwich that was on par. We would absolutely go back and it is so conveniently located in Red... More

My Husband and I ate here on our first night in St John on Thursday the 16th of June. We were seated in the back and had a great view of the rest of the restaurant. Our server was Julles, who worked her tail off the entire time were there. She waited tables kept bar drinks full and was an... More
