“Wonderful Surprise”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

We ventured to Red Hook from our hotel and weren't sure what to expect when we heard that most of the restaurants had lost power. The menu posted outside of the Cellar looked interesting, so we took a chance. We were greeted by the chef who told us about the power issues and assured us the air conditioning would be cranking in no time and we could be seated in about 20 minutes.

During that 20 minutes we sat in the chic lounge and enjoyed delicious appetizers and cocktails served by the same kind and attentive chef that greeted us. We really enjoyed the music they played as well. Really great ambiance. We were promptly seated in the dining room where the service was friendly and well paced.

Dinner was absolutely delicious, with everything prepared to perfection. Power went out a couple of times during dinner, but it never caused any issues.

It was one of our favorite meals enjoyed on our wonderful trip to St. Thomas. If you are on the island, you don't want to miss this place!

Dear sjh813, Thank you for reviewing your recent experience with us at The Cellar and The Bar. It is great to hear you enjoyed your evening even with the power outage situation. Here on the island the power can be fickle to say the least. Our generator usually helps with the glitches and for any wait you may have endured we would like you to know your patience was appreciated. Thank You again for your kind words.
Warm Regards,

“The Cellar was amazing!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We had dinner at The Cellar in Red Hook last night and absolutely loved it! Everything was top notch, from the food to the service to the beautiful decor. Our server was Carla, and if I could give her six or seven stars I would! She was so sweet and attentive and gave us lots of tips of what to do on St John. We started with the scallops in a rich balsamic glaze and truffle Mac and cheese, which was possibly one of the best things I have ever eaten. Then we had beef Wellington and crab cakes for dinner, both of which were delicious and cooked to perfection. This place has a great wine list, which you would expect from a place called the cellar, but I was particularly impressed with their sophisticated selection of wines by the glass. For dessert we tried the house specialty, bread pudding, and it was awesome and smothered in ice cream and caramel sauce. We can't wait until the next time we are in St Thomas to go back to the Cellar!

“Good people great service”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

Came in for a glass of wine and Happy hour and Cody served me a great Cabernet. Happy hour turned into dinner and Carla and Jessica took wonderful care of our table. The Tuna Poke was to die for and the filet was cooked to perfection.. Hats off to the chef, and thanks to all the staff for being professional yet friendly! Teamwork at its finest!

“Great Food but Better Service”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

After returning from a day of fun beach activities and shopping on St John Island, exhausted, we drove our rental car off the Ferry and this place was conveniently located in the same area with plenty of parking. Food was really good and moderately priced compared to some other restaurants previously visited. Portion was great. The restaurant overall I give 9.5 out of 10. (I never give 10). One thing to note is that the service was great. Our server, Carla, saved the day for us. We had just discovered that we left a package in a souvenir shop while shopping for the children at St Johns. Pretty disappointed in myself because we had taken the last Ferry to maximize our last stay and our flight was the next day - so not able to retrieve it that evening. Carla immediately called the store, they located it, she arranged for another store owner to swing by and pick it up and is now having it safely mailed to the states for us. We had previously went to the Wyndham, Marriott as well as other restaurants during this trip but this restaurant by far was the best food for the money and the BEST SERVICE!! You will not be disappointed.

R L,

I am glad to hear that Carla took such great care of you and was able to ensure that you received your souvenir. I am also happy to hear that food was great, as our kitchen really works hard to ensure all the food is perfect. After a long day of beaches and shopping, sometimes we need to unwind with a worry free meal and great service, and we are always happy to provide that for our guests!

Thank you for taking the time and sharing your experience, and thank you for choosing us for your last meal on island.

Hope to see you again soon,

William McPartland
