This was our first trip to Asolare in many years as it hasnt been good the last few visits. There is a new chef and I will say the food was very good. The smoked pork loin they served was quite tasty and the Tuna was out of this world. The service on the other hand was horrible. While the server was less than interested in taking care of us it got worse when we used sand dollars to pay. He indicated that because we used sand dollars he was going to automatically add 20% gratuity to the bill. It was his loss since I ususally tip more than that. This however should have been explained prior to the bill. It should be on the menu, mentioned when you book the reservation (which was booked through the Westin), not when you go to pay. Not only that there was a line called "rounding" that took our bill up to the next whole dollar. While 4o cents is not going to cause me to go broke it is the principal that he did nothing nor did the restaurant to earn that money. As someone who is in St. John 2-3 times a year I will not go back to this restaurant simply due to the shady happenings from our server. Again, food was great, view is always amazing but the server this trip left way to much to be desired.
