“Best Chef on St Croix”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I've been dining at Savant since 2006. The restaurant has always been good and among the best on St. Croix. The Chef creates inspired specials every night. Last month, we discovered his Wahoo preparations to be particularly outstanding. In fact, they were so good that we dined at Savant every night they served Wahoo during our trip. We ended up eating there 4 times and had 7 completely different Wahoo finishes from which to choose. Thanks to other Wahoo eaters at my table I sampled all 7 finishes. They were all terrific though the apple based finish was unexpectedly over the top. My compliments to Tom and his Chef for keeping it fresh, inspired and currently the best restaurant on St. Croix.

“A Wonderful Meal & Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

We treated ourselves to an amazing meal for our last dinner until the next trip to the island!! Our service was outstanding and our choices for dinner was absolutely delicious. Lucky that we took a few photographs to show because to explain it, well you just can't! You have to go and enjoy drinks and your meal and see for yourself. Our dining experience was the best. Thank You to the staff that made it wonderful.

“Fine dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Their chef is fantastic at plating the food that was served to us
Great appetizers and excellent food
Many choices of beverages too
I liked the ambience of all the white mini lights and the dessert was the end of a great dinner a little pricey but well worth it

“Best meal of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I have nothing bad to say about this restaurant. We called to make a reservation and left a message, and Tom called back immediately and couldn't have been nicer. He set us up at a great table in the courtyard, which is really a neat place- feels like an old palazzo. The menu is wonderful and varied, with tons of daily specials, mostly focusing on the fish of the day. The "worst" part of the meal was having to limit myself to one entree! The dessert menu is great too. And the service was quick and attentive without being intrusive. It wasn't a cheap meal, but I don't think anything on the island is. Definitely worth the visit!

“Perfect dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We spent a week in St Croix last June and wanted to dine at a high end establishment one of the nights. We actually heard about Savant from a couple we had met at Point Udall. We made a reservation, but really didn't need it being off season. However we were shown to a prime table for two that was in the courtyard which doubles as the bar. The night was very comfortable and the atmosphere was outstanding. Both the service and food were very good. They had a good wine list and we also enjoyed dessert. The most unique aspect was the way coffee was served as it finished at your table. Even though we dined close to the bar, the noise level was perfect. I would highly recommend Savant as a special occasion restaurant.
