This would have been 5 stars but for the expensive price. But we know this and feel it is worth it to come here every year we are on St. John. First off he bar is lovely to sit and enjoy a special drink. Then the view is the best for sunset or at night looking at the lights on St. Thomas. This is a very romantic spot.
The food is very good to outstanding. Loved the burrata mozzarella appetizer and my filet mignon in a cherry reduction. So fantastic. My husband had the ribs which he enjoyed, but didn't think they were as outstanding as the appetizer or my filet.
The entire staff was attentive and friendly. We love Kim, Asolare's bartender who always picks a special sipping rum for my husband. I had a grapefruit juice, vodka and rosemary martini- awesome!
If you are looking for a special meal and place on St. John this is the best!

Our night at Asolare to celebrate our friend's birthday was nothing less than spectacular! From the assistant manager, Jason, to our waitress, Hillary, to the bartender! We enjoyed all of you so much! You entertained us in a pleasant but not intrusive way. The food was prepared very nicely! We had ribs and corvina. We had a special order since one person in our party had a food allergy and the kitchen took great care to ensure that this would not be a problem!!

Where can I start with how great this meal was... We arrived at Asolare on a Tuesday night expecting to meet a lengthy wait but were surprised to be seated right away and at a table with an astounding view of downtown Cruz Bay as well as a nice look at St. Thomas to the west. The host who seated us was the friendliest i've encountered and he was very attentive throughout the meal, getting us more water when we were low or even just to stop by and chat about our choices for food, where were from or even his personal story. Our waitress was just as courteous and friendly, making sure we knew the specials and even divulging how the spectacular collard greens were cooked. We ordered the Japanese Pork Belly appetizer and it was divine, cooked to perfection sitting atop a brilliant Kim Chi and on a very nice plate

I went with my family for a nice meal. The chef loves salt .
Beef carpaccio -- very salty
The ribs were ok but the collard greens were salty as well.
The waitress and bartender was very nice and shared good tips for the island.
Disappointed in the meal. Someone needs to tell the chef to hold the salt,
Better choices on the island .

Haven't been here in quite a while. The view can't be beat - lovely view of Cruz Bay and sunset nice breeze too. Kim,the bartender, made excellent drinks and was very personable. We had a table overlooking the harbor. The menu was imaginative and had some excellent choices. We ordered the duck, covina, the tuna and the Vietnamese rolls along with the beef capachio. All were excellent. The only problem we had was with the waiter,server id #7, making snarky comments to the manager re one of our dinner companions replacement of the silverware. Unfortunately, we heard him which did put a damper on the rest of the evening. Note to waiter: if you are going to make comments about your customers, don't let them hear you. Your tip was 14% rather than 20% because you insulted one of your customers.
