“Best restaurant on St. Thomas!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

I am writing this review a year late, and am ashamed of not getting it done sooner. I have been visiting St Thomas with my boyfriend for two years now and Epernay is hands down the best meal I have ever had...it even trumps most places I've been to in my hometown of DC. The ambience is fantastical, Old World charm surrounded by wine wine and more wine. Our food was melt in your mouth unbelievable. The owner is such a great guy and talked with you as if you were family, he even personally walked us out to hail a cab. Do not leave St Thomas without going to Epernay. Call ahead because it is a smaller.

“Back again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2014

favorite place on the Island to really eat well. Excellent service. Their Lamb chops are outstanding and recently had what they describe as a donut soup for desert.....a literal explosion in the mouth. This place gets better each time we visit. Definitely 5 Stars.

“Unique Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014

Epernay is a great little restaurant in Frenchtown, in St. Thomas, USVI (24 Honduras Street, St Thomas). The restaurant has an old-world charm and offers a delicious menu. During the day, they also offer crepes, sandwiches, salads, etc. This place used to be more like a club back in the day but has been remained. There are unique drinks here as well, beers, wines (its a wine bar), liquors and the desserts are to die for. There are happy hour deals where prices are reduced for select items. Don't quote me on this one, but I think it is from 5-7PM. You can call the restaurant to find out at 340-774-5348. The restaurant is small, but sitting inside, I think makes you feel like you are inside of a boat dining cabin - its pretty cool but inviting. This place is a little more upscale in terms of the food choices and prices but it is well worth the visit. it's personally one of my favorite restaurants in St. Thomas. I personally enjoy going at night after 8:00 pm and going here would be a great time to also go at sunset so you can see the sunset right off the water.

Parking is limited and ensure you park carefully to avoid getting hit. I would carpool to reduce the hassle with parking and ensure you lock your car. The McDonalds is nearby and sometimes there are some questionable people going there at night for food or to hang out. So be aware. Make reservations at Epernay for dinner before going to ensure you have a table as seating is very limited - Sometimes the wait here can get a little long if you don't get here at the right time or do not have a reservation.

Another idea for a short trip is to go to Epernay for lunch during the day before or after a side trip to Hassle island. Ask one of the local fisherman to take you to look around at the ruins (negotiate a fee). Just ensure if you go to hassle island to remember that you need to bring your own food/water and there are no bathrooms. Ensure you have the right footwear as the terrain is unbalanced.

Hope you enjoy your time at Epernay. I've been here previously when it was more of a club scene. I like it better now. If you love wine, there are some nice options. We ordered a port and some dessert on the last trip late at night. Enjoy!

Delicious food, excellent service and romantic setting. Perfect date night in St Thomas! The potato leek soup was my favorite, and the presentation was spectacular. A must in Frenchtown!
