“Most fabulous”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

This has to be one of my favorite places ever. Love, Love, Love the ambience. So darn beautiful. The food was so fabulous. It was my husband & I and our son and his beautiful girlfriend. They were both overwelmed. Have been there 4 times on our trips to St. Thomas and its one of our places we always go back to.

“Great ambience!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

This was a great spot for a nice dinner on the water at night. Very modern and upscale interior. The food was really presented well, however my husband and I aren't really into Cuban Fusion or seafood so it just wasn't for us, but we really enjoyed our night out.

Thanks for stopping in to see us! We're glad you loved the ambiance we provide here and that you enjoyed the evening overall. Though our menu consists of a unique mix of tastes from the Pacific Rim, Latin American flair and fine dining, we understand that it may not have been to your specific tastes. It's great to know that you still enjoyed your night out, and we hope you'll stop in for drinks and atmosphere if you're ever back in St. Thomas. Thanks for the review!

All the best,

“BEAUTIFUL AMBIENCE AND VIEW, MIXED RESULTS ON FOOD AND SERVICE”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Our group of six travels often and stayed at the morningstar/marriott this past week. We loved the atmosphere of Havanna Blue and some had raves about their dinner. It is presented well, but was probably the worst sea bass i have had, didn't taste fresh at all, and I've tried sea bass a lot of places!! We liked Christine, our waitress, a lot, but it was so dark that we couldn't see the menu or the bill and that should be accomodated. When we later got our bills for the hotel, there were several charges that were duplicated on that bill. Made me wonder if the lack of lighting even on the table was intentional. Finally, it was confusing that they said that they are not part of the marriott. were told we couldn't charge to the room and then told we could at a different bar. Would kind of think the setting would warrant a little nicer dressed waitstaff(tshirts and jeans are nice in the daytime, but at night, at these prices, it just seemed like more of a dress up experience )and then we felt somewhat overdressed!

We appreciate you coming to see us while you were in St. Thomas. Though our food is upscale, we try to create a casual experience for our guests, to make sure everyone is comfortable. We apologize if it made you feel overdressed.

As for the billing situation, please accept our sincerest apologies for the confusion. Our restaurant is not owned by the Marriott. We certainly do not intentionally mislead any of our guests with charges, and we'll work with the Marriott to make sure this miscommunication is cleared up. Finally, we're sorry that your Sea Bass didn't taste right. That's a favorite dish for many of our guests. We hope you brought this to the attention of your server and that it was taken care of for you. This kind of experience is definitely not typical for us, and hopefully we'll have another chance to prove that to you in the future. Thanks for taking the time to bring these points to our attention.

Kindest regards,

HAVANA BLUE Management

“Nice setting but don't go for the food.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Have dined here for several years and won't go back. The food was pedestrian and very overpriced. I thought I was I was in a tourist trap,in South Beach. Enough said.

Christine,

This is very distressing to hear, especially from someone who's dined with us so many times. Was there something in particular that seems to have changed? We still take a great deal of pride in our cuisine, so this is quite surprising to hear. Your business is important to us and we don't want to lose it after all these years. Please get back to us when you can so we can further discuss this with you.

Sincerely,

HAVANA BLUE Management

“Excellent food, Even better service.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Our waiter, Brandon, did not steer us wrong. From drinks to menu suggestions, his recommendations were on point. We enjoyed our drinks, our tapas, and our entrees. Couldn't help but notice that the other servers were just as bubbly and happy to be serving their customers. A great restaurant with incredible ambience. Open air to the ocean. Not a bad seat in the house.
