This restaurant is where Zozos used to be, and I have to say, Ocean 362 is far and away better than Zozos! The menu leans toward Indian style dishes, but the flavors are subtly spicy without ever being overwhelming. The Garlic Marsala shrimp was fantastic with the yuca mash, and if the Branzino is on the menu, definitely get it! (The chef prepares it himself.) The tirimisu is better than some I've had in Little Italy in NYC. And absolutely try the Jimmy Hendrix cocktail (chai tea with gin and mint.) I almost hesitated writing a review because I wanted to keep this gem a secret, but it is just too amazing to keep to myself! Really, it's NYC's fine dining on St. John.

We went to Ocean 362 during a weekend vacation to the Virgin Islands and couldn't have been happier with our choice. We ate at about 6:30, which was the perfect time to watch the sunset over St. Thomas (great view). Our waiter, Nancy, was attentive and very friendly. They bring out bread to start you off with some great butter infused with crushed pepper. For our main meal, we had sashimi tuna and whole branzino, both of which were fantastic and cooked perfectly. For dessert, we had a flourless chocolate cake, which was to die for. We will definitely be coming back here when we visit St. John again!

So glad we tried Ocean 362 for dinner during our recent stay on St. John. The service was friendly and efficient, and Nancy our server did a fine job. The food was really outstanding, and as good as any we have had at a number of our favorite restaurants on St. John. The Chef has done a great job with adding some different takes on various dishes. All four of us really enjoyed our meal, and the evening, and will definitely come back. The venue is great, as they occupy the sight previously occupied by Zozo's. This is a new place that we hope will attract a loyal following as they continue to refine things.

We had a delicious dinner and got to sample all the desserts - the shrimp curry was delightful - the spicing is subtly Indian and the portion is generous. My appetizer of cioppino had a wonderful broth with real depth of flavor. The service was very good - although some of the staff was a bit inexperienced, their attitude and approach was thoughtful and thorough. The wine list has a good array (to me - but I'm not an expert) of reasonably priced tasty selections. You can't beat the view if you dine around sunset, although it was rainy the night we were there...but since we were having such a good time and good dinner, that didn't matter!

We enjoyed the mahi entree and many of the appetizers, the squid bruchetta, tuna tartare, pulled pork, and prociutto with figs. The view from the dining room and the bar upstairs is spectacular.
