    The restaurant is lovely - right on the ocean. The food and service were excellent. It’s a menu with limited items and pricey but well worth it!

    Felt like we were on a movie set. Venue with the ocean front seating is absolutely magical and could not be better. Service was a little slow but you didn’t really mind since there was so much view. Recommend trying to go around sunset. And food was excellent and reasonably priced compared to other high end places on St Croix. Just go!

    Of course wonderful ambience grotto side seating, but service and food left us underwhelmed. Our main server had some difficulties explaining multiple parts of the menu and drinks, but more frustratingly would not seek answers for us for questions she did not know. We were also served in part by four different servers which kept needs met at the expense of repetitive questions that easily brought us out of our groove. The menu was extremely limited as well at 10 dishes split between 4 sharables, 3 apps, and 3 entrees. Not a problem, except that there were 0 specials to branch out with. Food was a mixed bag, the steaks for the night were fillets that were cooked to our desire but most of our other dishes fell flat in terms of flavor. Besides flavor, one pasta dish had over cooked noodles while a rice dish was undercooked. The experience was similar from the bar where each old fashioned the table ordered lacked consistency. Hard to justify fine dining prices for such an average experience.

    Ama at Cane Bay offers a fine dining experience, featuring menus that highlight the local flavors and ingredients of St. Croix and the Caribbean. Fresh seafood, such as Almond Crusted Mahi, with salpicon, asparagus, cilantro and line, or Caribbean Lobster Tail & Egg-Drop Amok, with garlic and ginger infused rice, chili, lime and herbs, or Grilled Bavette Steak with smashed red bliss potatoes, charred red onion salsa and broccoli chimichurri featured prominently on the menu, often prepared with tropical fruit, seasonings, and spices. Ama of Cane Bay also features a diverse wine list, and drinks with a tropical or Caribbean twist to the cocktails. Dining at Ama at Cane Bay offers an elegant atmosphere, with a spectacular view of the sea, and evening sunset. The service is very attentive and professional with wait staff that caters to your needs.

    We decided to have an early dinner at AMA before Georgia played in the Peach Bowl. The food was delicious. The service was remarkable. We were able to enjoy time as a family while at the same time enjoying a phenomenal dinner. We could enjoy the view for just a few minutes since the sun was already almost set, but it was beautiful.

    Food was mixed. Steak was very fatty for a filet and came medium rare after being ordered medium well. Lobster Alfredo was delicious and came with a whole lobster tail. They did fix the steak and gave great customer service.

    Just a gorgeous setting- dramatic entrance then right on the water. Staff were all very friendly. We had to wait a half hour even though we had a reservation which was the only downfall. Flourless cake was amazing.

    Every bite of our Christmas Eve dinner was delicious! Eating alongside crashing waves without ever getting wet was a bit of St Croix magic. Our server gave us great recommendations on shared items and our cocktails and mocktails were spot on. Highly recommend the trip over to Cane Bay to enjoy this special place.

    I was looking forward to the lobster on the online menu… while the Landing and Spratnet had fresh lobster, AMA did not last night. Put that far aside because the food they DID serve was excellent. And our server was, too. I will be back.

    Service was cold, as was the fish. We had heard great things about Ama but were disappointed. The rum cake was the tiniest sliver of dessert I’ve seen (and we’re from NYC!). However, the brussels were excellent and so was the view.
