Reserved the restaurant for a large business group and was thrilled by the setting. The atmosphere was great, food was delicious and the view of the sunset was amazing. What a great time.

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal at The Bistro last night. The service was excellent, the location, which is right on Cruz Bay Beach, is a great open air spot. My husband had the arugula & papaya salad and the pork shank. He...More

Most recent visit 12.12.16. Among the restaurants in St. John, Waterfront Bistro may not quite win on location but it certainly comes close. It truly is right on the waterfront in an attractively designed setting, starting with a comfortable bar that gives way on to...More

This little Bistro is in the Waterside shopping area and is very high end. As a single diner I was seated at the bar where the two lady bartenders were working at a feverish pitch. I ordered the quinoa salad appetizer and people watched. The...More

Great food and service at the Waterfront Bistro. Wonderful bread and special honey butter. We enjoyed the pork shank and bib lettuce salad and both were excellent. We also tried the chocolate lave cake which was also good. I recommend this place.

Found my favorite wine here during recent visit to St. John - Kim Crawford. Nice escape from the heat and sun - classy place with good drinks and good food.

Logan from the Bad Kitty boat tour recommended Waterfront Bistro for their burgers and he was right. It was a really good burger. I got the one with peanut butter (don't ask me why) and it was great. My wife even said it was good...More

Waterfront Bist... S
Hi Steve, You have the wrong restaurant. We have not changed our lunch menu since 2014. We are also not located near a parking lot. In fact, it is impossible to even see a vehicle from our restaurant. Therefore, your accusation that our manager yelled at a person parking their car and called them an idiot while taking a picture of them is in fact incorrect and impossible. Please remove this post, as you have falsely named our restaurant. Our restaurant is called the WATERFRONT BISTRO, located in Cruz Bay, along a beach. Not alongside a parking lot where our managers mock people, yell at them and take pictures. We take pictures of sunsets, because we can't see cars. Thanks
