We had reservations at Ama’s with my husband to celebrate my 50th birthday! Making a reservation was easy. We actually dined there two nights prior and canceled our Saturday reservations because of the quality food and friendly service. EJ, General Manager, was a gracious host. The live on Saturday night was a bonus! As you can tell from the photos the view is breathtaking and the food is amazing! The service was professional and personal.

Great experience. Appetizers and entrees were spot on. Scallops were wonderful and lobster tortellini was another enjoyable appetizer. We had the tuna special and the mahi that was on the menu…all were cooked perfectly and enjoyed by all. Desserts were fair. Disappointed in the tiramisu. Would pass on dessert next time. Will definitely go back for the appetizer and fresh fish entrees. Drinks tend to be good size and maybe that accounts for the price. Service was very good.

Beautiful setting with the perfect sunset. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We loved the cocktail special. My husband had the grouper risotto special which was one of the best risottos I have ever had. They were out of the honey pie so we settled for the cheesecake instead which was fabulous. Great for a romantic dinner. I was impressed with all of the fresh ingredients and the perfect flavor pairing. I want to go back.

Outstanding restaurant, magnificent atmosphere, extremely well curated wine list and bar program, food was absolutely amazing. Our waiter, E.J., who was also the Manager, was extremely knowledgeable and an expert in his field. It was a shock and a pleasure to see not just Martinelli and Turley on the wine list but by the glass as well. I doubt that if I dined out every night at different places for the rest of my life that I would find a table as amazing, scenic, and special as "D3" at AmA. Sadly, the sun had gone down so our phone cameras would not do it justice, but the waves were literally crashing all around us and we never once during our 2 to 3 hour meal got wet or even sprayed. The Lobster Ravioli app was so good I had to order a second with my meal. The Scallop app was indescribable; I have never eaten fresh, caught that day Scallops, but they were almost translucent and were seared perfectly. My only suggestion to the dish would have been to add some bacon dust as it needed a little salt but was otherwise executed perfectly. The Shrimp & Crab app was like a miniature seafood potpie, with fresh carrots and peas in a seafood bechamel over puff pastry. For Entrees, I had the tuna, which was seared rare to perfection and presentation was lovely. Juliette had the Thai Mussels as her entree, and the curry seafood broth was BEYOND amazing, a little garlic toast would have put it over the top. This was the first time that we had been out since Covid for a REAL dining experience, and I have to say AmA did not disappoint. For dessert we had the house made Tiramisu, which was exquisite, the lady fingers were moist and the marscarpone dissolved on the palate. Truly an amazing and wonderful experience that will live on in our memories.

Be sure to enjoy this place before the sun goes down, big regret that our Res wasn't until 8p. Also, for large parties, checks can only be split at most two ways. Good food, quite a drive from the Buccaneer but wanted to try.

We were seated 90 minutes past our reservation time which would be unacceptable if the bartender wasn't solid. The ambience is worth a visit just for the view and the staff was pleasant even under pressure. The food was tasty but a bit disappointing after such a long wait.

This is my second visit to AMA, and it was as excellent as the first time. Food and cocktails were absolutely amazing! Highly recommend the ceviche and the honey pie! The views cannot be beat! I would recommend getting there early to enjoy a cocktail and enjoy the views. It’s an experience that cannot be missed on St. Croix!

Exceptional meal and amazing service. We started our experience at the upstairs Sunset Bar, where the bartender Ted set us up drinking rum out of fresh coconuts and enjoying the view. We were then escorted to the patio around the grotto where we sat under Italian string lights with the ocean just a few feet away. It was stunning. Jayda, our server, was absolutely lovely and made sure there was never an empty glass on the table. Dinner was a decadent 3 starter of lobster tortellini, fritters and a pumpkin goat cheese salad. It was amazing and we followed it up with a duo of steaks and almond crusted Maui. With the limited room we had, we finished it off with honey pie which I can only describe as a deliciously elevated take on a pecan pie. Fantastic evening that will definitely be remembered as the highlight of our trip.

Our evening spent at Ama was an absolutely fantastic experience. It was nothing short of magical. From the atmosphere, to the service, to the food, everything was top notch. Our server Laura made us feel special and went above and beyond to help us celebrate our anniversary! The food was delicious, with sizable portions for fine dining. We were seated right be the ocean and were gifted a spectacular view with an occasional ocean mist as the waves crashed on the rocks. It was something from a movie. The best dining option in the Caribbean!

Great experience. The location can't be beat, sitting literally feet from the ocean waves hitting the rocks next to us at sunset. We ate most of the small plates and all were fresh and uniquely prepared. Can't imagine a better dining experience on St. Croix.

AMA- which means river or water in the Taino language (my great great grandmother was Taino) has done it again! Just when I thought the service or the food could get any better it did.
Very rarely do you go out to eat and are excited to see how the next offering tastes as it arrives. On our recent visit we had the Ceviche, the feta watermelon salad, salmon and duck. But we were also delighted with a pumpkin salad ( that really should be on the menu) a strawberry soda made in house and Tiramisu and a honey pot. Think of the best part of a pecan pie and put that on your plate. This place is truly special. Even the flatware goes perfectly. If you’d looking for a special night? Or just in the mood for amazing food check @amacanebay out, you won’t be disappointed. #usvifoodie #usvirginislands #usvirginisland #usvifoodculture #usvifoodandwine #usvifoodies #stx #stxbestchef #stcroixusvi #stcroix #usvirginislands🇻🇮 #yummyfood #gastronomy #salmon #pumpkin #ceviche #watermelonsalad #duck #honeypie #tiramisu

The food and setting was very nice- took over 3 hours total… not accommodating to food sensitivities. But nice people- just very very slow in the restaurant- not in the bar- zippy!
