“Picture Perfect Restaurant & Talented Chef”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Getting to this beautiful restaurant was half the fun, with its winding roads and beautiful views. The grounds are stunning, so arrive early to take in the view of the bay. We were seated at a window table, server was very attentive and greated us immediately. We enjoyed a cocktail while looking over a very creative menu. Our appitizers were the calamari and the crab and avocado stack, both outstanding, fresh from the sea crabmeat. Our Entrees were the Prime rib and the Veal Saltimboca, both dishes were seasoned well and very tender. We finished a perfect meal with the Chocolate Bread Pudding, warm and delightful. This was our first visit to Blue Orchid and we are looking forward to returning on our next visit back to St. Thomas. Congrats to the Chef she is creative and talented.

“Great view and amazing dinner”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

This was well worth the drive. The views are spectacular, make sure to bring your camera. The food was wonderful. We had the signature Blue Orchid salad with duck and it was awesome, and very big. We split a steak which was the special and it had a plum sauce reduction that was very tasty. And their rolls, LOL, are really good too. We had chocolate cake and homemade ice creams which were all very good too. And not too expensive. It was a great meal. Had we not gone on our last night in the USVI, we would have dined there again.

“Fun with a view”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Went there for dinner with friends. The trek to the top was a bit interesting. We have a friend who is brave enough to rent a car so we paid more attention than when the taxi drives us and it is hilly and windy but worth the drive. Had a great meal with great service. We had the pasta special with a killer sauce, some had the filet which they said was delicious. Will try to go earlier next year so that we can enjoy cocktails while it is still light so we can see the view better.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious, although it was slightly overpriced for the proportions. I've heard the view is amazing, but we went after dark.

“Talk about a view and a heck of a meal”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Well worth the trek to the top of St Thomas! Meal was sensational. Tuna Tartar and Tuna Nicoise and Key Lime Mousse. Husband had the Wahoo and was very pleased. Get there before sunset and head to the deck on the roof...breathtaking! Service a little slow - but we were in no hurry
