Service was slow, the lobster bisque was so salty we sent it back, and must have been the bus boys playlist that was loud provocative rap music not appropriate for children. Do not go here. The menu looks good on paper but does not delivery. I’d be ashamed if I were the owner.

There was live music and the view was outstanding. They were a little busy for the amount of staff they had so it did take a little long for us to be seated even with a reservation. The food tasted good, but was a little expensive for what it was. Whoever the mimosas by the bottle were definitely worth the price. The waiter was very friendly. Overall it was a good experience.

The food was good, but the prices were very high. Service was average at best. We were told we had to make reservations, but there were more empty tables than occupied. Overpriced

We enjoyed our time here and the food was good, but our service was extremely inefficient (and this was not the first nice place we'd eaten on the island). For the price point the music was more like a night club...not soft, low volume music....at one point it turned off so someone in our party took their phone out so we could have some music and without commercials. An establishment such as this needs to reevaluate a few things to continue to attract guests. The food was good, but due to being served (pre-owned) wine (which apparently a percentage was taken off full price) , slow(er) service, and while we're in the Islands, not a lot of breeze or air circulation throughout the restaurant. Chef Benny's food was good, but unfortunately, that's just part of the whole experience.

We had reservations but when we arrived they had given our table to another group. They really didn’t even think that was a big deal. They set us up outside after wiping off all the tables from the rain. We still got sprinkled on during the night. It took 2 hours to get our food. We never got our appetizers. We asked for silver ware at least 8 times, asked for wine glass for the bottle of wine 5 times. We fed our toddler with our fingers because couldn’t get any utensils!!!
Food was good when it finally arrived although the potatoes were cold. When we got the bill, they’d overcharged us by $140 for the bottle of wine we ordered. Worst service ever!!! Had a $1000 bill, but evening was ruined by the service & missing items. Would never go here again!!!! Unbelievable how bad it was given the cost of the meal!!!

This place has potential. Unfortunately, it seems they are content to rely on their location, the enticing offerings on their printed menu, and extensive wine list(s) to fulfill that promise, or even come close.

We made our rez (party of 5) for Thursday night because we were worried they might be out of items by the weekend. But after we were handed menus, we were informed they were out of 2 signature dishes, the scallops and wagyu short ribs.

The major complaint about the food was that several of the dishes were very oversalted. There are only 2 options if you want steak: a 12-oz Wagyu NY strip for $130 and a 6-oz Wagyu tenderloin for $110. My better half went for the tenderloin, which was tasty but about as thin as a waffle. The mahi was dry and overcooked. My Wagyu meatballs with fettucine, pomodoro sauce and arugula were also tasty, except there was no pomodoro sauce, no arugula, and spaghetti instead of fettucine.

I ordered a $100 bottle of Australian shiraz, which should have been decanted, and since a couple in our party did not care for it, I wanted to order a less expensive bottle of Pinot Noir, having noted there were a number of reasonably priced bottles ($40-$50) on the wine list. So I asked to see the wine list again, and I was handed a completely different one, which listed my same bottle of shiraz at $114 and lacked most of the $40 bottles on the first list I saw.

We skipped desert. The final bill came to over $700, including one round of drinks and a 20% gratuity tacked on for parties of 5 or over. This despite the fact at 1) our server disappeared for long stretches of time; 2) the place wasn't overcrowded; and 3) we were seated at 7 p.m. and, because it took so long between servings, we did not get out of there until 10:30!!!

Given the huge anticipation we all had looking forward to what promised to be an exciting culinary experience, I must say that this was one of the most disappointing meals of my life.

Food was fantastic. Only complaint would be that they have no reasonable kid meal options. For the prices you pay and the uniqueness of the menu options, you can't expect kids to eat off the main menu nor parents to pay for a $40+ meal per kid.

Our view for dinner was amazing, out on the balcony during sunset. Couldn't be better. It did rain for a moment, but passed quickly so we were able to return to our original table. The food was delicious as well. My husband said his meal (short rib) was the best he had all week. On top of all this, the staff was super-friendly. I would definitely recommend dinner here.

We visited Mirador on Thursday, July 8th and had a very pleasurable dining experience. Jermaine, our server, was very attentive, friendly and provided us with great service. The food was very good, albeit a bit pricey for the level and quality, but that's the case with most all of the higher end restaurants on St. Thomas. We would likely visit again.

Food was excellent. The waitress recommended the pork shank and it was delicious. I had ices tea and my husband had a mixed drink. They were Great. The only negative is my husband wanted after dinner coffee and they had no coffee and the dessert (chocolate cake) was dry and tasted like Walmart. However everything else was Great. Eat here you will not be disappointed just skip dessert and coffee

Poor to no parking.
Seats were very, very uncomfortable for 3 larger folks.
Understaffed, long waits (waitress, Q, was nice, not her fault)
4/7 of attendees didn't like food (but 2 thought fish was great). One came over cooked, but they made it right.
Fairly expensive, so expected more. Doubt that we will go back.

One of the best presentations I’ve seen. Server was very good. Hostess took people behind us and sat them while we oddly waited beside another patrons table. $8 water? Come on! Food was really good along with brunch on Sunday. If not for some service issues we could have gotten to 4.5.

Unclear what happened, but our table was skipped over constantly for other tables and service was really slow. However the food is amazing and really enjoyed it. We went on a somewhat cloudy day, but I imagine the views are spectacular at sunset overlooking the ocean.

Absolutely delicious and has amazing views! We ordered the lobster bisque and it was hands down the best we ever had! Then we had the wahoo and again it was fantastic. We ended the meal with guava cheesecake that was to die for. Allison was our waitress and was very attentive and gave great suggestions. Can’t recommend this place enough!
