“Exquisite Evening Dinner”
Review of Oceanside Bistro

Oceanside Bistro
Cuisines: Caribbean, Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 July 2014 via mobile

We were in St. Thomas visiting family and they recommended Oceanside. We had been to several restaurants in town, but this was far the best cuisine.

When we arrived we were told that a local fisherman was delivering some lobsters that he just caught. So we ordered two lobsters, chicken Parmesan and Mussels marinara. Just delicious and the presentation was marvelous. We met Maura, the head chef, who was passionate about her food and service.

If you are in the area, check them out! We are so glad we did.

My husband and I loved the food, people and atmosphere here. It is very relaxed and laid back, they also make a killer bushwacker and painkiller!

To put this in perspective, we live on a boat traveling the Caribbean. We eat at LOTS of seaside restaurants in lots of beautiful places.

We were met by the executive chef, Maura Hennessey, as we came ashore to check out the restaurant. She welcomed us in, told us what was special and especially fresh, and generally shared her excitement about FOOD.

It was a slow night, and we had one appetizer and one dinner from the menu, and three custom creations that she made from the items that she had gotten in fresh that day. Everything we had was superb, from presentation to portion size to flavor. We had four meals, an appetizer, and 5 drinks for $120 plus tip. We have had many meals in this area that were simple pub fare that cost that much or more, and the food quality, quantity, and presentation at the Oceanside Bistro was far superior.

Not to be missed if you are in the area. If you happen to be visiting on a sailboat, you can lay off their dock with a stern anchor, and this is a great place to drop off or pick up guests fling into Charlotte Amalie.

We came here for an early dinner. The portions were small, the prices were expensive, and unfulfilling. The hot wings came with a smudge of ranch on the side. Literally a smudge. The ranch container was for about 2oz and we were given a smudge. When asked for more ranch, we were given another 2oz container, with another smudge. It was ridiculous. The pork inside the sandwich was pink and undercooked, when addressed we were asked if we wanted to purchase something else. At this point, the meal should have been replaced at no extra cost, but it wasn't, we were asked to purchase another item! The French fries were over fried, hard and brown, my kids couldn't even eat them. Also, renovations were taking place right next ti us as we were eating. Horrible. Waste of money.
