Food was delicious and had a good variety of options from seafood to land food. We sat outside and was a comfortable awning but the location was definitely subpar as it was right above the pool. All the people at the pool could see you and you could hear their conversations and just wasn't a good ambiance for the nicety of the restaurant. All else was good, as well as service, besides the outside ambiance.

Beautiful view of Charlotte Amalie harbour. Very nice ambience. Service was good. Food was so so, kind of boring, just not too exciting. I had filet with peppercorn sauce, and it was just boring, no tang. My wife had chicken marsala, same thing, not bad but not very interesting.

This was our second visit! We love it so much we remembered the name and came back 13 years later. Our first visit was in February during peak season and I would recommend reservation. Our most recent visit was in August and a reservation was not necessary since it's off peak season. The menu is quite large and array of choices. I would recommend sharing a meal since the portions are large. You will be in love and return year after year.

I booked a table here for our wedding night dinner. Both me and my husband were very disappointed. Firstly, when I booked, I made a special table request. Upon arrival, despite giving name and reservation number, the staff appeared to have no idea, or interest in who we were, I don't know if this was because my message had not been communicated clearly, or they really weren't interested!
Some of the cutlery was dirty and, when he pointed this out to the waiter he was told it was just a scratch.The food was mediocre, vegetables were cold and their famous flambé dessert was, quite frankly, a damp squib!!
I have eaten in many restaraunts around the world and this one is extremely overpriced and over rated! Sadly this spoiled a very special day!

We are on vacation with our 16 year old son. This was an outstanding restaurant, from the decor to the service to the food. The surf and turf was incredible. My wife had stuffed salmon equally great. My son had the chicken parmigiana and is was fine but not like the other meals.

My husband and I celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary there this past weekend. We live on island and there are many good restaurants on the island, but i wanted to go someplace new so I chose Room With A View i am so glad we did. Terrific service, food and of course that view. Try to get one of the tables outside there are only 4 so I think the key is an early dinner and you probably have a better chance of having a table outdoors on veranda. Go here you will be happy that you chose it too. We will be back and bring our friends who visit us here on island.

We sat on the patio and it was the perfect spot. The beautiful view set the back drop for a lovely dinner with friends. Our waiter Aaron was fantastic and everyone loved the dishes we were served; from appetizers to dessert. I had the ahi tuna appetizer; fresh stuffed salmon w/house salad, mixed sautéed vegetables and garlic mash potatoes and, creme brûlée for dessert. A red blend wine from Bogle Vineyards, which was recommended by Aaron (who is a sommelier), topped it all off. Thank you Room With A View.

the view was outstanding, the food was good but not spectacular, and fairly expensive. there was a really good selection of wine by the glass, and reasonably priced. we had an outside table and watched the sun go down over the harbour. fabulous for a special occasion.

Our server, Aaron, was terrific. Food was very tasty and not terribly priced. I did get the stuffed salmon but did not really get much of the "stuffing" that I was expecting. However the lobster bisque was awesome, and the food all was tasty. The view is amazing of course- we sat outside which was even better. Great place.

Unfortunately I can not recommend this restaurant for the following reasons
1. Food is mediocre at best. Sauces had poor preparation and flavor
2. No effort in the formulation of the cocktails
3. Wine list impressive but prices completely deter any desire to purchase( over 2x retail)
4. The most bizarre table I have ever sat at. Constant traffic through a door adjacent to our table on a hot steamy night in St Thomas and the waiter going in and out would leave it wide open at times making it hot then cold then hot then cold. You get the picture. They need to remove that ridiculous table or bear more reviews like this.

Only complaint is with The Open Table app. It gave the wrong location for the restaurant.

Decided on a whim to try this restaurant and made a wonderful decision! The food was fabulous, the atmosphere and view were outstanding. The waiter was on point, both in knowledge and putting up with our boisterous group! It will definitely be on our list next year!

The view really was great, unfortunately the food was not. Everything about this restaurant seems dated. We spoke with the owners daughter and she was so sweet, our waiter was great and very attentive, but the menu desperately needs to be spruced up. The food wasn't all that good either, for a $200 meal, I expect to be impressed, and sadly I was not even satisfied. Hopefully as the next generation takes over this establishment, they will make changes and bring this lovely restaurant into the present, because as it is, it seems about 20 years in the past.

My wife and I spent our first evening meal in St. Thomas at Room With A View. We were able to be seated at one of the outside tables and enjoyed the island breeze. The staff was helpful and friendly. We enjoyed some of the Italian classic dishes - lasagna and chicken parmigiana.

My wife and I came here for our 20th Anniversary meal and were very happy with our choice. We had surf and turf and Chicken marsala , both great choices! We were given a balcony seat upon request and received great service from our server Aaron. Definitely the best fine dining experience we have ever had in multiple trips to St. Thomas.

If you want a beautiful view of the sunset in St. Thomas this is the restaurant for you. But for the price the food is good, not great. We were surprised the waiter never mentioned that the "famous" garlic bread offered in lieu of a bread basket included a $5 charge. Definitely not worth $5.
