We had great time at the Blue Orchid! The servers were friendly and helpful and the food was delicious - very well presented, too. We were not rushed but we didn't wait overly long for anything either. The outside deck has wonderful views of the Megan's Beach side of the island - awesome!

We spent 3 hours getting through dinner due to lack of proper staffing. There may have been a new cook hence the awful food. The special of the night was halibut over truffle rice risotto. Dried out. The Del Monica steak was cold and sour tasting. The potatoes were ultra salty to the point of inedible. The pomodoro fettuccini was... More

One of St. Thomas's best. Beautiful setting, loads of gardens and plants to ooh and aah before you get to the dining room. Great service and attention to detail. Nice presentation.

I would agree with the review with children not behaving parents should be ashamed. First of all this is fine dining not romper room. We had a nice brunch here on Sunday and the presentation and service were very good. The food is a little pricey but worth it for a special occasion. This is not a place for small... More

Blue Orchid is perched high atop one of the highest spots on St. Thomas. Be sure to get there with enough daylight to enjoyt he magnificent vistas of the surrounding archipelago from the roof top deck. The restaurant itself is very attractive, though surprisingly dark for a Caribbean spot. Not much local fish so we had delicious lamb. Nice wine... More
