“Prime Rib was awesome!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2011

Based on several recommendations, we went to the Tamarind restaurant on Wednesday, "Bowman Prime Rib" night. It was awesome! Probably the most tender and flavorful prime rib we've had. The price was very reasonable, and everything was just delicious! We had great service and talked to Bowman on the way out, thanking him for our excellent meals. We're looking forward to our next trip to St. John and Bowman night will definitely be on our agenda!

“EPIC FAILURE!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2011

If you are looking for nonexistent service where you will be told by the waitstaff to "seat yourself" with the only 10 tables in the restaurant and wait for service to never appear well this is the place for you! I went with friends and waited over 20 minutes for service of ANY KIND to approach us but low and behold it was an EPIC FAILURE! 30 minutes later we decided to leave, apparently if the servers want to chill in a corner and post their business on twitter then more power to them! This place is terrible!

“You will be suprised”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2011

I have been a resident of St John for about a year and dine out often. I usually go to The Tamarind for breakfast but decided to check out Bowman night. It is a very casual, but inviting setting. The food and service was outstanding and not overpriced. The food was creative and fresh and the service fun. As a local person in the food business I can say don't pass up Bowman night, you will not be sorry!

“Simply the Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2011

My husband and I dined here during our last visit to St. John and had a few great dining experiences. The restaurant operates with a different cuisine each night M-F and the prices on all nights are more affordable than any other places we tried. We had not been in previous years, during our annual visit, but heard a lot of buzz about a new line up of nights and cooks so figured we'd try it out. We went on a Friday and had a Prime Rib and a Mahi dish, both were fantastic, as were the appetizers and desserts, all for a reasonably price pre-fixe option. We enjoyed the meal and the ambience so much that we returned again early the next week for the other nights which were also very good. The courtyard setting is very relaxing and intimate. Great place all over! We'll be back again next year for sure.
