Description: Creative Island-Inspired Cuisine. Fresh Local Seafood.COCO BLUE is passionate cuisine. That is how owners Nicole and Eric Horstmeyer describe the cutting-edge creations. The former Manhattanites decided their new home in the Islands could use a few restaurants that would make fellow foodies proud. Along with St. Thomas native co-owner Zack Zoller, they have done just that and then some.COCO BLUE delivers a total night-out package they like to call, "Experiental Dining." The sights, sounds, ambience, aromas, and marina front setting are chic, topped only by some of the most creative dishes on any island. If life is lived in the details, then long live COCO BLUE!“You only live once, but if you dine well, once is all you need.”

Reviewed August 4, 2013

lobster was awesome, but I was not prepared to spend $60 per plate. I liked the locally sourced food items incorporated into their menu. their motto says it all " you only live once, but if you eat well, once is all you need".

As a proud part of the St. Thomas community, we're thrilled to offer locally sourced items as often as possible. Thanks for sharing that. We hope to see you again any time you're in St. Thomas, for another enjoyable meal here.

“The best place in Red Hook!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

It has a great menu that is different from the routine. All of the dishes are fresh, great and inventive. Having travelled to St. Thomas the past three summers, Coco Blue is our one splurge night out. We tend to all order something different and then sample each other's dish. The key lime pie with jalapeño glaze is amazing!!

“Dinner with great friends”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Walked into Coco Blue and were immediately greeted by a very friendly host, Steve. Did not have reservations but were immediately seated. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Beautiful scenic ocean views on the big screen tvs in back seating area. Our server, Sara, was incredibly friendly and attentive. Drink orders were taken and filled quickly. We decided to try a dinner of apps. and sushi. All the food was excellent, especially enjoyed the sushi rolls.
Steve, turns out to be the manager on duty, came by to make sure everything was good.
All in all our party was very happy with all aspects of Coco Blue and will definitely be back.
Side bar, try the fried cheesecake, it is great!!!!

“To DIE for!!!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Our experience at Coco Blue will be the first thing we think about when we reflect on our trip to Pt. Pleasant. The staff, Steve, our greeter (and owner?) was incredibly personable and Lee, our server, was the best! I had the special of the day, the Mahi smoked w/hickory chips with saffron risotto and it was as amazing as Steve kept telling us (he was SO excited about it!!). The Chef even came out to say thank you and we told him that it needed to be on the daily menu. They paired our rolls and meal with a Reisling and a Chenin Blanc, all incredible! And, you have to save room for dessert!! The Chocolate Begniets (sp?) we're soooooo yummy and the tempura coconut-banana cheesecake...what more do I need to say??! Lee recommended the Coconut Cooler as the cocktail and let me tell you...we ROLLED out of that restaurant, very happy, I might add! Thanks to Coco Blue Chef, Steve and Lee, for a very happy memory!!! Best of luck to you!!! We'll be back!!!

“Favorite on the island”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Wow! We are a family of foodies (our four kids included) and Coco Blue was by far our favorite meal on the island. The menu is creative, so many flavors brought together beautifully. Skirt steak with watermelon chimichurri; plantain stuffed chicken; green chili mac and cheese- I could go on but my point is made I am sure!
Each course took some time but we regard that as a huge positive because it is evident that great care is put into perfecting each dish.
Our server was wonderful (bummed that we can not remember her name- maybe Steph?). She was attentive, patient (foodies sometimes ask a ton of questions) and quite fun.
We ran into some friends here at home this morning who are flying out to St. Thomas this week and absolutely raved to them about taking the time to catch a meal at Coco Blue! Kudos to you... keep up the good work and please consider opening a sister restaurant in Windermere, Florida!
