“Wait staff....”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

So, went back to the Blue Orchid.....rather than dinner we did appetizers and happy hour special drinks.......I don't know what the deal is with this place. Such a beautiful venue but the wait staff/service is just off. The Lobster pizza on the appetizer menu was missing the lobster, either that or it was fake lobster than had been frozen, it just had no lobster flavor....Probably won't go back for a while...it just doesn't jive well.

“Dinner and Beautiful Gardens”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

This is a beautiful restaurant in St. Peters Great House. Come early and enjoy the gardens and view of Magen's Bay. The steaks were the best on the Island and the whole dinner was artfully prepared and served. Our server's name was Denise and she was absolutely perfect! The restaurant is actually a good value for the high quality and ambiance compared to other high-end restaurants on St. Thomas.

“simply divine”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

my husband and I love Blue Orchid. We go for romantic evenings by ourselves, with groups and even for happy hour. Love that they have several vegetarian options as well.

“You Have to Try this Place!!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

I went to the Blue Orchid while staying in Saint Thomas and have to say it was my favorite restaurant that we ate at. The view overlooking Magen's Bay is unbelievable and the atmosphere was very relaxing. For our appetizer we had mussels and fried calamari that were great. Then, for my meal I had the seafood special that day which included Lobster, scallops, clams, and shrimp. It was all served in a delicious sauce and the dish overall was fantastic. Plus, the prices were great! I had an amazing experience at this restaurant and will definitely go back next time. I strongly recommend that you go here while on Saint Thomas.

“Blue Orchid Restaurant is a hidden gem”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Recently opened in the St. Peter Greathouse and Botanical Gardens on the Northside of St. Thomas, this restaurant is a hidden gem with its friendly staff, wonderful food and "living room" type decor that makes a visit feel homey and welcoming. The St. Peter Greathouse and Botanical Gardens has amazing ocean views and a large variety of plants and flowers that make this a "must see" on your itinerary. Make a reservation and then get there early (before nightfall) to walk around the amazing property and enjoy the spectacular views.
