    This review is NOT indicative of the meal we actually had there in 2021. That meal was great and we loved everything about it. This review is for August 2022- both Google and OpenTable said that the restaurant was open. We were able to make a reservation on OpenTable. When we arrived for dinner we realized it was not open. We tried calling and finally asked someone at the bar next door. They said it was (and had been) closed for reservations. We ended up scrambling for a seat somewhere for dinner. Please update this restaurant to accurately reflect that it is NOT currently open!

    We showed up and they were closed, no notification or anything, they don’t answer the phone, no communication at all. Made brunch and dinner reservations and since they were closed without any notice we couldn’t get good dinner reservations at the last minute. It’s a shame, they were good when we went before but seems to be another island come and go without warning

    Unfortunately I cannot say anything as Open Table allowed me to book a night at this restaurant while vacationing with my family at St. John. My wife and I made a reservation for a date night just the two of us without the kids and when we showed the restaurant was closed! We checked their webpage and Facebook page and there was nothing posted about being closed. In fact, it remained closed the rest of our time on island. How does Meada's Garden not post their closing on their webpages and block reservations from occurring on open Table??? Poor customer service and social media management. Reservations are almost a MUST while on St. John. Luckily my wife and I were able to get lucky and were seated at another restaurant saving our date night. We will not be visiting Meada's anytime soon.

    We arrived and were promptly seated. Menus were given, water and bread delivered to the table. We ordered the crab cakes and the sun dried tomato caprese salad. Both were delicious. For our entree we both had the Sea Bass with seaweed risotto. Again excellent choice. Came to table hot and again was very delicious. For dessert we split the chocolate lava cake. Excellent newer restaurant on St John, Cruz Bay. Well worth it.

    Mariella, our server was friendly and very attentive. I didn’t want the special cocktails and just wine or Prosecco and she got me a nice glass of Prosecco that wasn’t on menu. The food was very good. We had lobster nachos based on the reviews and definitely delish. We had too many apps so I was already full. I ordered the tamarind bbq shrimp app as my main with white rice and they played it beautifully. The tangy was what I wanted but in small portion so it was perfect. We went on the early side so it wasn’t too crowded. The outdoor garden at night was so pretty.

    Host, ambiance and sushi was amazing. It took over an hour to get our appetizer and rolls going and the servers were upset and would mumble the roll name and drop them on our table. I kept reading amazing reviews on travel groups and it was disappointing to be treated that way. Hoping it was just an off night and maybe something had gone on before we got there.

    Food was okay, portions were large. Service was terrible from the time we entered. Stood at the “wait to be seated” desk for several minutes before we went to the bar and the bartender found somebody to seat us. Everything took forever, in a near completely empty restaurant. Drinks sat on the bar counter for 15 minutes - we watched, wondering if they were ours - until we finally asked about our drinks and they were served. By then, the ice in the cocktail had melted and completely watered the drink down, and the glass of white wine was lukewarm. Server was not familiar with the menu. There was a photographer wandering around taking photos, including flying a drone overhead, I’m not sure if they were working for the restaurant or what, but it was distracting, and nobody seemed to care.

    Mid - dinner we were asked to have our table moved over due to a large party which didn’t want to be placed in the rear of the restaurant - after that service went seriously downhill - with cursing from the bus staff and our waitress unable to return to us until she brought our check which we waiting for quite a while to get. The food and service was fabulous as was the ambiance until we were made to move. I would recommend but only for the food, up until last night our first trip to St. John was amazing.

    We went for brunch on Easter. Food was great and service attentive. I wasn’t sure about going because I couldn’t find many people who have heard about them. Concierge at the Westin said they were fairly new but heard it was great. So glad we went. Adults and kids age 8-15 all enjoyed!

    Didn’t have a chance to eat here. Booked a reservation 60 days out however the day of we called to ask a question and they informed us that they had a private event and didn’t want us to eat there. They blamed open table and anyone else they could instead of just owning their mistake. They tried to switch our day and make it right but the damage was done. Wish them the best of luck as I know this business is tough. Communication was just non existent.

    Had about 50% of what was on the menu available- which ok- that’s fine but have a daily menu with listings of what Is/isn’t available. Had Rose wines listed by the glass but were told they were only available in a bottle. Has the potential to be great- just needs work.

    A year ago this restaurant was under another ownership. It was fantastic. That it was the reason that prompted me to return. But things were very different this year. It seemed to be a struggling restaurant, with overprized food, with almost half of the offerings not available anymore. Whatever we found available was good. The server was very nice, but totally untrained. Asked if we wanted the fish, rare, medium rare, medium or well done. The menus were covered with plastic laminated, not a very good feature during Covid times. Wonder what happened to the previous restaurant owner.

    We really enjoyed Meada's! Our waitress Aline was sweet, and the sushi was very good, very fresh and interesting combinations. Be sure to come in the main entrance from the park versus coming in from the street - to get a better look at the overall design and all the lovely plants and attractive bar design. The manager in the end comped us a round of drinks for having to wait a bit for our sushi and brought out an incredible piece of birthday cake for someone in our party. Will be back.

    We ordered the special of the day, half lobster with shrimp. The lobster was awful, mushy and definitely not fresh. The claw was desiccated and black. The shrimp topping that was covering the lobster meat had a nice flavor, so it was deceiving at first. When we complained we were assured that the lobster was fresh and they did nothing to make it right. There were only 2 other tables occupied. Obviously everyone else has already figured out this is not a good choice.
