“Amazing Dinner experience”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

Very expensive but worth every penny. You must have their signature Mojito. Also request a table by the window as this is an outdoor type facility so no air conditioning.

“Hot, tired and forgotten”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The food was very good, but we were stuck at an inside table in this open air restaurant with virtually no air circulation on a night when the outside air temperature was 88. The service was horrible - the waiter failed to check on our appetizers and the dinners were served first without apologies. We scrapped the appetizer course and settled upon desserts, which took forever to arrive. They comped one dessert, but it hardly made up for the disappointments. If you go, reserve a table next to one of the windows.

racer13715, our guests typically rave about our open-air atmosphere and our warm and attentive service, so it's both a surprise and a disappointment to hear you didn't enjoy your visit to HAVANA BLUE. Perhaps you caught us on an off-night? It's no excuse for keeping you waiting, but if you joined us again, we're certain you'd have a better experience. Thank you for reaching out to let us know we missed the mark for you. We'll be sure to check in with our waitstaff to ensure show the same consistent service to every guest.

Best wishes,

HAVANA BLUE Management

“Concierge was our waiter”
Reviewed October 3, 2013 via mobile

We made reservations for a large party and were taken care of like it was a table of two. Drew was our waiter, and not only proved to be an excellent waiter, but he also took an interest in us, giving us great tips on snorkeling and other places to visit. This was unexpected as we were a dry table and a large group. I had expected some disappointment from our waiter in such a situation, but he never once acted or seemed the least bit disappointed.
The food is very food as well. Everything was wonderful in both flavor and presentation. I would highly recommend this establishment.

Diverdown12, when you dine with us, your experience and enjoyment is our only concern. It sounds like Drew showed you what sets us apart from the rest by not only making sure you and your group were comfortable but also felt welcome. We'll be sure to pass along your kind words.

It would be wonderful to welcome you again soon. Keep us in mind for your next visit to St. Thomas.

Safe travels,

“Good Food, Great Location”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Havana Blue is on the Marriott property at Morningstar Bay but is independently operated - which means you can't charge your meal to your room.

The service was great, our waiter was very helpful, tweaking the options on an appetizer for us to better accommodate my friend who has a gluten allergy.

In terms of entrees, my friend had the Mahi Mahi and I had the skirt steak. The steak came with two dipping sauces - a mojito sauce and cocojito sauce. Both were so so yummy. I ended up cutting my steak into smaller and smaller bites so I could maximize the sauce.

The restaurant is all open air, but if you go after sunset it's pitch black outside so there isn't much a view to enjoy. The atmosphere is fun and tropical though, with lots of blue lighting throughout to play off the name.

StacyInDC2012,

From all of us at HAVANA BLUE, we want to thank you for taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. It sounds like you enjoyed our open-air atmosphere as well as our cooking. We appreciate the kind words for your server; it was our pleasure to accommodate your friend's allergy—we are always happy to do what we can to let our guests dine with peace of mind. Also, we wanted to clarify that despite the fact that we are privately owned and operated, room charges are accepted. Please accept our sincerest apologies as system was temporarily down, but is now up and fully functional. You'll have to join us again some time for more of the dipping sauces you loved and our Exeperiential Dining! We look forward to welcoming you back.

Thank you again,

HAVANA BLUE Management
