Very disappointed with our experience this time. We returned to Aqua Bistro in expectation of a great food and live music experience we had here last year. This time, the waiter was very unaccommodating and simply told us the kitchen will not accommodate and substitution of chicken for fish (at a seafood restaurant!!) on a pasta alfredo dish for a...

On a recommendation from someone we ran into, we figured we would give it a try. Parking was not bad which is saying something for places on this island. we had 8 and they said they could not accommodate us until 630. we were seated right away and the server did come over in short order to take drink orders....

Just one of the restaurants in Coral Bay, Friday night is tuna night. They pile it on your plate w/ seaweed salad,which was delicious,along w/ a generous dollop of wasabi. An excellent dinner on an excellent island. On other nights, the food is delicious as well. We lucked out as it was a full moon this particular evening, which added... More

We had read about Friday nights at Aqua Bistro on the @tripadvisor forums. It was our first night on the island (and my bride's 50th birthday) so we made a reservation. I'm not a huge tuna fan, but we had heard so many rave reviews about Ponzu Tuna Night that we had to go for it. End result: ONE OF... More

Returned after a year to find this place still open and going strong. Had a wait so took the opportunity to pick up some groceries at Dolphin Market, other shops there as well. Still waiting so sat at the bar and listened to the music. Finally table ready and we got settled. Salad good, fish great and risotto not so.... More

This is a lovely little spot and they had happy hour music which was a nice addition. We cam for the famous ahi tuna night. The tuna was fine but I was expecting something more memorable due to how its advertised. have had more flavorful ahi dishes. The bufffalo shrimp appetizer though was very tasty. Cocktails were OK but a... More

We have been there twice for dinner out, dressed up and enjoyed it very much. If you want to be sure to get in, especially on a Friday or Saturday night, I would call or stop in and make reservations because they fill up quickly. The service was prompt and food was great. My husband who always finishes a meal... More

We ate here probably 5 times over our 2 weeks on St. John! The place has great food, a decent view (the bar kind of blocks the water view), and friendly (sometimes a bit slow) service. There isn't a dish we tried that I wouldn't recommend, but the best were the jerk chicken sandwich and the hot sauce (the called... More

Ate here on their busy night but they still got us a table. In between two buildings so no view but they do their best to create some ambiance. We had the ponzu tuna (their famous Friday night special) and mahi mahi ponzu style.The sauce has a very strong flavor - wouldn't get the mahi with it again for sure.... More
