    Been there twice last week, once was phenomenal, the second time was awful and I couldn't eat my appetizer which they did take back and replaced. My main course was so overly salty it was inedible but I was too embarrassed to send it back

    We come here frequently and it never is disappointing. The menu is even better than before. Our group had the crab cake and lobster dumplings as appetizers. Amazing! For dinner the mahi with crab was outstanding and the Caribbean lobster was excellent and very reasonably priced. Drinks are great and the wine list is nicely varied. Service is superb—very personable and friendly. You won’t regret coming here.

    We dined here 1/2023 and again 2/2024. Both times we were seated (by request) on the back deck with our family of 7 including our 9 year old granddaughter. Everything about 3 Palms was wonderful… everyone was very friendly and pleasant! They accommodated our granddaughter with her beverage and food choices! The appetizers and entrees were delicious and served in a timely manner. I highly recommend the Caribbean lobster dumplings, charred Octopus, local Caribbean lobster and pan seared swordfish. The complimentary biscuits are “out of this world!” Definitely make reservations before you leave home!!

    My reservation was canceled by the restaurant without an explanation 72 hours prior to my reservation though I could rebook at the same time and date. However, after rebooking, the reservation now says not eligible for the open table points. I know they are virtually useless but still feel slighted by the restaurant. The food was very good. Service was only when you could get her attention. She never once came over to refill drinks or even ask how our dinner was. The Lemon Tart desert was delicious finish to the meal.

    The food was very good as advertised. Our party was seated inside next to the bar. The seating, overall was limited with a small inside area around the bar and a similarly sized outside area. The service to our table was slow and inconsistent. It appeared nobody was fully assigned to our table and I think we actually had 3 different people tend us. Our dinner took over two hours and we often had to wait uncomfortably long between visit. At one point, I asked to see a wine list and received one quickly, but then our server didn’t come back for over 10 minutes. I had to flag another server down to order. Our main course was almost done when we had the wine served. March the service with the food and the value we would be more line with price!

    This little place is owned by New Orleans natives and the menu doesn’t disappoint. I found the crawfish ettoiffe delicious and the seared scallops were lovely. It sits above a live music bar which can be a plus or minus depending on the ambience you are hoping for.

    A nice surprise from the concierge at our hotel- had a nice cocktail on the deck before dinner, seated promptly, hostess was a doll. Apps were good (octopus and shrimp) the biscuit was insane. Dinner was crawfish and mahi- were both very good! Priced like NYC but was as good as it so didn’t feel like overpriced at all- if I lived here I’d def be back - would recommend - enjoy

    Food was very nice. Our wait staff was excellent - the host could be a bit more friendly. Sets the tone for the evening. Table was a little awkward in its placement. Maybe just remove the small round table for four due to traffic and the overall look of space and ability to have a nice meal without all the foot traffic. I recommend if you’re going for their happy hour, seat at the bar our lounge. Not the tables as the happy hour does not apply to seated reservations.

    Not cheap but perfectly reasonable for what it is—delicious food and excellent service in a lovely spot overlooking Red Hook Marina. Our party of four had drinks, good if not fancy wine, a couple of shared appetizers and sides and desserts and entrees for$100 a person, including a generous tip. The house special mahi, the scallops, and the shrimp appetizer got especially good reviews from our party but everything was very good. We’ve been several times and will go back.

    We chose 3 Palms for my husband’s birthday dinner while on vacation. We arrived early for our dinner reservation and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers in the outdoor lounge area at happy hour prices. The lobster dumplings and grilled octopus were both delicious! The cocktails were also excellent. We sat in the outdoor dining room for dinner, where I enjoyed outstanding grilled lobster and my husband had an amazing scallops dish. We highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Red Hook area!

    One of our party was running late. Hostess very kindly delayed our reservation. We had cocktails and apps at the bar: delicious food and stellar service. Lobster dumplings were excellent, thought the grilled octopus didn’t have the char-grilled flavor we prefer. Once seated for dinner the service was again 5-star. Favorite meals at our table were the Caribbean lobster and the scallops. To top things off, one of our party left a package behind when we left the restaurant, and our wonderful server, Scott, found us a block away to deliver it! We’ll be back.

    The quality of food is exceptional and the best I have experienced in the last 3 years between St Thomas snd St John and BVI restaurants. ( Tortola - Iguana- Virgin Gorda etc) The menu has many options but between the crab cake appetizer and the scallops and fish options offered as our table experienced were outstanding. On top of it is the very laid back outdoor dining overlooking the harbor and sunset with great service. If you are in the area, detour to 3 palms to have amazing experience.

    Our best restaurant experience last year so we were eager to return this year which we did on our first evening back on the island. We were glad we did. Just as good the second time. Six of us and everyone was happy with their appetizers and main courses. Service was professional and ambiance right on the water was great. Highly recommend.

    Our party of 4 had a 5:30 table outside overlooking the harbor and it was beautiful. Live music from the restaurant below was nice. Our meals, drinks and desserts were top notch. Some of the best food we had on the island. Parking can be tough! Navigate to Hook’d in order to find 3 Palms.

    We enjoyed our meal and the service was great. They moved our table under the tent when it started to rain, brought simple syrup instead of just sugar to sweeten my daughter's drink, etc. The Mahi dish, lobster dumplings, carrots, potatoes were great. 4 stars instead of 5 because the scallop entree and the gambas app were a little salty for us.
