This evening was a special opportunity to catch up with some dear friends. We wanted excellent food and service and we got both at this wonderful spot. First of all, ask for Sally. I have dined for many years in many cities and she found the perfect combination of attention, timing, enthusiasm and skill to make this a top notch evening.

The four of us settled on two dishes and both were superb. Both of the women ordered a Tuna Nicoise, beautiful presentation, a delicious cut of Tuna with a poached egg on top. The taste was exceptional.

I ordered the Lamb Trio, don't be fooled by the description. It is not a shank bone, rather gently sliced tender cuts of lamb sitting on a bed or risotto and grilled asparagus.

We sat along the rail and although we dined to late to enjoy the sunset, I am sure that it would have been perfect as well.

If the visiting the Island, make sure this is one of your stops.

We enjoyed dinner at Waterfront Bistro early in our stay on St. John. The bistro's beautiful views over Cruz Bay were a perfect beginning to a memorable meal and a wonderful vacation. On recommendation of a regular visitor, I ordered the "Wild Striped Bass Pistou". The perfectly cooked bass was absolutely outstanding! We split an order of the Vegetable Risotto as a starter. The risotto was creamy, and the vegetables were crisp. Waterfront Bistro is definitely a favorite!

Second year in a row that my family has gone here - terrific both times. Great food - different takes on the local fishes. Request a table right next to the water. We had a group of six and loved that we could all hear each other (meaning the music was just the right volume). All six of us raved about the food that we had. Highly recommend!

The drinks were awesome, the food was good, the location is unparalleled. The prices are a little high but you are paying for the view. The staff was very friendly. We loved the vibe on St Johns and would definitely go back.

This place had an amazing view. Not only could you see the water, but the ferry dock was close; nice to watch the boats as you eat. The food was good and they seemed to be more tourist friendly. It was a beautiful island and would definitely eat there again.
