Service was a bit slow for this reservation. The mahi mahi and the scallops were excellent. This is one of the best restaurants on the island, and the view can't be beat!

Best dining view on St. John. Great sunsets. Food is very good. Decent wine menu. This was our third year in a row dining there. We even remembered our waiter Fitzroy from the year prior. Both of us had fish that was well prepared, split a bottle of wine, and had a leisurely caribbean dinner, while watching the sun set over St. Thomas. Looking FWD to next year.

We had a party of 8, service is always slow. 3 of us ordered the mushroom ravioli, because I told everyone it was so good the week before. None of us were happy with it, no flavor and watered down. Very disappointing. I finally learned my lesson and will not go back.

All in all, a great experience. Reservations were easy, and we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our waiter was professional and friendly. Our meals were excellent. The ambiance was moderately loud, but not at all intrusive or a hindrance to conversation. My only regret was that we were seated in the interior section, although we had requested porch seating.

Food was excellent but service could have been better. Sat at bar which has the best view, but bartender/server seemed a bit distracted and not all that attentive. Maybe service at tables is better.

I would recommend this restaurant to a friend because of the beautiful views & interesting menu. The food was very good, but not exceptional, which I would normally expect for expensive menu. My husband and I shared 1 appetizer, a salad, an entree and dessert. We were charged $6 to do the splitting. We finished everything and were very full. We were leaving St John and next day and didn't want to be left with leftovers. Seems a bit ridiculous to have charged us $6 to split the plates. Service was a bit slow. It took us 2+ hours from being seated to getting our bill paid. Appetizer and salad came quickly but we had a long wait for the entree.

After reading the reviews of slow service, we arrived at 545p(early) for a table of 5. Service was excellent at first, but then after seating the other tables, service was slow. We did not order apps, so we thought that the dinner would come soon after ordering. Turns out other tables who arrived 30 min later, got their salads and apps before our dinners arrived. Service was friendly, just slow.

We ordered our food at 6:15 and did not get it until 7:35 and three out of the four orders were wrong. They charged us $26 each for our dinners (We are vegan) it consisted of a half a cup of rice and a half a cup of squash and a carrot. This is not enough food for an adult. I asked specifically for no carrots when I put the order in but got them anyways. They promised a melody of vegetables on a plate that is not what we got. Even though they serve asparagus, broccolini, green beans etc. The whole experience was outrageous. We won’t be back, we remembered the same thing happened last year. Slow service and messed up food orders that required a even longer wait. To bad because they have such beautiful views. The Bartender upstairs was very nice and tried her best but the kitchen was completely at fault just like last year.

Loved the BLT salad and special chicken soup. I was somewhat disappointed that they did not have the scallop entree, but the lobster ravioli was good as was the local fish entree (snapper). Nice drink selection and we loved the beignets for dessert.

Wonderful atmosphere, food and service! We visited Ocean 362 2 times in 10 days because of the service by Jill (Bar Manager) and the other staff, the welcoming aura as soon as you step foot on property, the view from the bar seating (highest seat in the house to see St. John sunsets), the prompt and great food service and delicious food. I have to say a lady who was just coming to start her shift, greeted us and told us someone would be with us shortly...very warm and friendly environment. Rachel, the wonderful and friendly hostess, told us she saw us at church (another loving person from St. John reaching out and welcoming). I’m not sure what the man’s name was who brought us our food but he was extremely warm and friendly. It’s fun to sit at the bar (reservations for sunset seats are HIGHLY recommended!) as it always turns out a great place to meet other wonderful couples visiting the place we’ve grown to love in such a short time. One last thing, using OpenTable is a great way to be sure you have reservations for the evening as phone service is not always prime, especially when you get away from town. Awesome job Ocean 362!

To be honest, I read some recent reviews on Ocean 362 and I was concerned. My wife and I dined here on our last visit to St Johns in 2017 and it was excellent. On this visit, our food was very good. It was tasty and delicious. The views are simply stunning. We had a cloudy night but the sun tried to escape. Still stunning to view. Food portions are small and over priced. A drawback for me is that the restaurant know I was celebrating my birthday that night. In fact, they asked when we walked in "if we were celebrating anything" on our visit. Even though they knew about my birthday, they did NOTHING to acknowledge my birthday. Not even a FREE dessert. Quite disappointing!

There were 3 in our party. Two of us ordered the mahi mahi - one the special, the other the standard menu item. The fish was tough, didn’t taste fresh. The standard menu item was over spiced and salty. Grilled asparagus was limp. Cocktails were unremarkable. Overpriced and poor quality.

Sit at the bar to view the sunset. Jenny was a great bartender although she was covering a lot of tables and the bar. Nice night. Maho Maho was very good - large portions. Ribeye looked delicious. Drinks ( painkiller with fresh nutmeg) went down Very easily!
