We stayed at the Marriott, so decided to walk down the beach to Havana Blue. The food was fantastic and our server, Christine, was very helpful and friendly.

The waiter immediately began to drop magazine names and restaurant kudos, long before offering us water after we'd been on the beach all day. Then they got our order wrong....then the recipes were just off...wasabi mashed potatoes and chorizo on steak?

We do apologize if the beginning of your experience was overwhelming rather than welcoming. Though we're proud of our accolades, the comfort and enjoyment of our guests are our top priorities. We'll be sure to address this situation with our serving staff to make sure we're not starting you with an off-putting experience. We also apologize for the incorrect orders, which is definitely something that shouldn't happen. It's a bit surprising to hear that you felt the recipes were off, though. Our Wasabi Mash, and especially our Ancho Filet, are items we're often highly commended for by our guests. It sounds like we really missed the mark for you, and we truly apologize for that. If there's anything we can do to encourage you to visit again should you return to St. Thomas, please let us know.

Sincerely,

HAVANA BLUE Management

The location is lovely, but the food is just average compared to other restaurants on the island. There is a good wine list.The restaurant is convenient for hotel guests at the Marriott next door. The views of the Caribbean make the dining experience very enjoyable, but the food and menu need improvement.

Sandbar is the beachside bar and lounge at havana blue. very classy, great small plates and really good mojitos. the upstairs restaurant (only open at night) has a very cool atmosphere but is more of a date spot. the bar is just a cool afternoon hangout with a classy but casual vibe.

Thanks for recommending our Sandbar as a great place to grab a bite and a drink while you relax during the day. The "classy but casual vibe" is exactly what we're going for, so we appreciate you passing on the good word. Stop in to hang with us again whenever you find yourself back in St. Thomas!

Take care,
