My fiance and I "bought out" the restaurant for our wedding reception of 25 people in early July. When we first picked this location, it was still Virgin Fire. A month or two before our wedding/reception, we received a call from the owner, Michael, informing us of the concept change for the restaurant (Viva Cantina). He was wonderful to work... More

Perfect place for a 40 person party. The food was "medium" but the bar and dance floor made up. The balcony and open air made it warm but airy.

Thanks! It is a great place for a party: parquet dance floor, great lighting and we have great air movement to keep the party cool. More

Food was really good. Gumbo served in large portion and very tasty. I had the sample meats on salt brick, be prepared to cook yourself!

Looks like the same owner, but now Mexican. We did not like Virgin Fire and thought the Mexican would be good. Very disappointing food and evening. Food nor good. They don't know what the food is when they serve it to you. They need to start over.

We tried Virgin Fire for the first time this year, and we found the food to be delicious and the service excellent. We made a reservation and requested a table on the balcony where we enjoyed both the view and the tropical breeze. The restaurant is appropriately named--the food is nice and spicy. Not for the faint of appetite, but... More

We arrived at the very end of happy hour that had discounts and drinks and appetizers. My wife and I shared 3 appetizers, one was fish tacos (great), coconut shrimp, (even better) and the gumbo. Gumbo was good, but not what we were used to, it was heavier and did not have as much of a soup feel to it.... More

Planned on going to another restaurant in Mongoose Junction but ended up changing our minds when seeing their menu. Decent food, decent prices and good service. No complaints. Overall good experience.

We ate here last week. My husband had the pork ossobuco and devoured it. I had the Mahdi fish and chips which was fresh, crunchy and delicious.nice atmosphere and free parking while dining or shopping at Mongoose Junction.

Thanks and so glad you enjoyed. Seems like a good time for us to announce that we will be serving our last meal on Friday June 10. We're proud of what we've been able to accomplish at Virgin Fire Grill, but feel that St. John would be better served if we created an authentic Mexican Restaurant, a dining experience that... More

Virgin Fire has a very cool vibe. We visited at about 8:00 p.m. and the restaurant was fairly quiet. We enjoyed a number of very good wines and feasted on the jumbalaya special. We like the Mongoose Junction shopping center very much and Virgin Fire adds a very nice touch as an upscale, but not too pricey, restaurant. Overall, I... More

I've learned that when a restaurant's "special" is actually a special rip off, in terms of charging extra for some repackaged item, then it's a place more interested in making a quick buck than anything else, even if they do a number of other things right. Virgin Fire strikes me as such a place. The food is decent enough. Their... More

Thank you for the visit, but I do have to day that so many of your assumptions are off base. The bartender is not an idiot: the reason we would use a very good wine in a sangria is because we serve very good wines by the glass, some of them appropriately priced as high as $14. People who know... More
