Near the ferry, great view of the beach. Salad and chicken wraps were light and fresh, very tasty! Very nice service.

We were looking for a laid back place with good food and a nice view. It is bizarre that it is so hard to find seafood in St. John. Still we had ceviche, tuna, and a corvina special. All were expertly prepared and very delicious....More

I could not be happier with Waterfront Bistro. We had our wedding reception here and it was just fantastic. I think Waterfront Bistro may have been the only restaurant I had not been to in St John and I was honestly slightly nervous because of...More

We live in St John and eat lunch here quite often. When we first moved here, we were like tourists: We did not know anyone. These people made us feel at home, served us great lunches and even gave us ice chips for our dog!...More

Waterfront Bist... S
Hi Steve, You have the wrong restaurant. We have not changed our lunch menu since 2014. We are also not located near a parking lot. In fact, it is impossible to even see a vehicle from our restaurant. Therefore, your accusation that our manager yelled at a person parking their car and called them an idiot while taking a picture of them is in fact incorrect and impossible. Please remove this post, as you have falsely named our restaurant. Our restaurant is called the WATERFRONT BISTRO, located in Cruz Bay, along a beach. Not alongside a parking lot where our managers mock people, yell at them and take pictures. We take pictures of sunsets, because we can't see cars. Thanks
