The salmon was amazing!!! Staff was very friendly. Don't forget to order dessert! It was kind of hard to find, but totally worth it!!

Great food, great menu, great service, great setting...this place had everything. They used the wall of the wine crate that has the winery's logo as a decoration throughout the restaurant. Our server was a foodie and took some time to tell us about the food - which, by the way, includes a lot of locally sourced ingredients. Take the trip to Frenchtown and eat here.

We used The Twisted Cork Cafe to cater our destination wedding in St. Thomas, VI. Bryan and Eric were very helpful and attentive to all of our needs which can be especially hard planning over the phone. The food was delivered on our wedding night and it was a huge hit for all of our guests. And the price was much cheaper than the other catering services on the island, I would definitely recommend them to anyone planning an event dinner or wanting to dine in their restaurant. Thanks Twisted Cork!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Twisted Cork Cafe during our visit to St. Thomas. We had already dined at a variety of establishments on the island and decided to try this for dinner based on reviews on TA. We were not only not disappointed but were we in for a treat!

We found the variety of flavors, seasoning, choice of sides, among other things to be beyond "on point" and have been thoroughly impressed. The menu has variety, depth and the chef obviously knows his stuff as we found the risotto to be perhaps the best ever and the mufongo to be just as good. The portions were plenty and truly delightful.

We started with the Arapas-- a playful sushi grade Tuna on a fried plaintain chip with a mango salsa, wasabi and teriyaki-type sauce- Wow. My wife enjoyed the Salmon Risotto- the fish was cooked perfectly and the goat cheese in the risotto was unexpectedly beyond pleasant. I had the osso bucco, accompanied by spinach and mofongo, sofrito style. Though a little salty (the sofrito), it balanced the pork well once combined.

We finished with the housemade apple pie and the housemade vanilla bean ice cream. Holy Cow! Really, that's all I can say.

These guys have gone above and beyond and you can tell by the little touches, the subtle flavors, the combinations, etc., that they really love this.

My hat is off to this establishment. The service could not have been more attentive or any better. Certainly this was the best meal of my trip and one of the best in a long time.

A note on the location-- Located in Frenchtown, a block off the water and on the street (one block) behind the restaurants that face the ball field. Though the area is certainly older and careworn, and even a bit dark in the evening, there was no appearance of anything dangerous or criminal. The area of town, as many other areas on this island, is not the most pristine, but remember where you are-- this is not mainland USA with all the benefits of such. Nevertheless, this is not Tijuana either and I did not feel the least uneasy. Parking is available just in front and to the side (east) of the restaurant (and its free).
