My lady and I shared an antipasto plate with pork belly and a number of other things, including the best artichoke hearts I've ever eaten. We didn't leave much on that plate, everything was so tasty. For our entrees I had the osso buco which was on point, and she had a pasta special, which was also delicious. We'd had... More

The setting is cliffside and overlooking one of the many St. John bays....Caneel. The spot is also graced to be an intricate part of the island's history since it is a restored sugar mill with grounds that are dotted with the sweetest donkeys! The ambiance goes unspoken. The meal however was mediocre at best and the service.... hurried and colloquial.... More

Our first experience at Zozo's two years ago was sub-par. The food was excessively salty and the service was pedantic. We felt as though the restaurant treated people differently according to room rankings. We had requested a corner table and were placed in the dead center of the restaurant. Talk about lack of courtesy. It was loud and uncomfortable. Nothing... More

ZoZo's is a one of a kind restaurant and a must-visit for any traveler venturing onto St. John's island. The cuisine is remarkable, the waitstaff are pleasant, and the ambiance is enchanting. The view is especially beautiful as everyone is seated at the top of the sugar mill which offers an expansive view of the ocean and the Caneel Bay... More

We had read and heard a lot of positive things about ZoZo's prior to our experience there, but I'd have to say we were a little underwhelmed by the experience. The service was hit or miss and we sat for easily 15 minutes before a server approached us to ask if we wanted drinks or wine, etc. Once we were... More

The atmosphere at ZoZo's is just beautiful and is very high-end. The prices are not that bad when you consider the prices in general on St. John. It wasn't inexpensive, though. If you are going out for one nice dinner, this is the place to go. The fresh catch meals are just delicious. We tried the octopus appetizer for something... More

We were lucky enough to get reservations for dinner on their last night open for the season. I had the scallop lasagna and my husband had the ribeye. Both were fabulous and we shared a bottle of wine. Such a lovely atmosphere for dinner. We were seated before sunset and got to see a lovely view. The service was superior.... More
