    The food and ambiance were spectacular. Our service exceeded all our expectations. The pappardelle and mushrooms was creamy and delicious. The lamb was tender and perfectly seasoned. My re snapper was served on a creamy bed of risotta. Dessert ... well ... as unbelievable as the rest of the meal. Thanks John and everyone at Zozo's for a remarkable evening of fine dining.

    Zozos is a one of a kind restaurant. Book a table and it's yours for the night - a two and a half to three hour (plus) dining experience. The view is to die for, the service is second to none and the food is absolutely amazing. I cannot recommend Zozos highly enough.

    My husband and I got engaged at Caneel Bay, followed by dinner at ZoZo’s exactly 5 years ago to the date of our reservation. We brought our family back to share in the experience this year and celebrate our engagement date. We were so happy to see that the owner John was able to reopen ZoZo’s. Service between our server Andrew, John’s visits to our table, and the rest of the staff were outstanding. Of course the food and the view were amazing too.

    Beautiful place, very good food and excellent service. We arrived at 6:30pm when the sun was still over the place this ruined a perfect experience, our sugestión, install a larger curtains or move the tables to were the sun does not hit directly. Another thing that we didn’t like was the noise from another table. The distribution of tables can solve this, large group should be placed far from small ones.

    Zozo’s has done an excellent job of retaining the lovely ambiance of Caneel Bay. Nothing is overdone or underdone in the way of decor. The views and natural spiritual essence remain. The food is imaginative and flavor layered. Highly recommend dining downstairs where you may choose your own courses.

    A truly memorable evening at Zozo’s with my family (including 21 and 17 year old). We arrived early and enjoyed a cocktail facing the sunset as it began. The staff seated us at our table when we were ready to move upstairs. The most impressive part of the evening was the service which was both relaxed and attentive. That continued through the evening. We had time to enjoy the stunning sunset without being rushed to order. Thanks to a tip from staff, my husband “enjoyed” the wild boar luge. It was quite the experience. Food was fantastic! The boutique had some unique items. The entire experience was magical.

    The overall experience was AMAZING! We had a large reservation of 31 guests and each person in our group had nothing but fantastic things to say. We had 4 tables off to the side and separated from other guests which was a perfect area for such a large reservation. The atmosphere is great. The food was impeccable . The service was on point. This was our first time dining at ZoZos and we will absolutely return. Thank you for helping us celebrate our special occasions.

    Well, I would love to provide a rating on my dining experience, but I can’t as my wife was “under the weather” and we were unable to attend our dinner reservation. I called Zozo’s the morning of our reservation at 8:30 am to let them know, but went to voicemail; left a message that we’d be unable to attend. Awake the next morning to a $340 charge to my credit card. Reached out to them to find out what happened and the following is the response I received (copied and pasted): Wes The website clearly states the cancellation policy. After Zozos received your message we tried to resell your table with no luck. We turned away numerous requests for your table since you booked it. We do apologize for not informing you od f the charge sooner I understand cancellation policy and that Zozo’s relies on reservations for preparation and income. My problem is that there was ZERO communication. I was unable to get anyone on the phone. The professional thing to do would have been to call/text me to let me know that a charge would be forthcoming…..if I’d have known, I would have come myself just so $340 didn’t go to waste. Bottom line, I’m sure Zozo’s does a wonderful meal and experience; but the communication and professionalism they provide outside of the restaurant is highly lacking. Buyer beware when making a reservation as there is ZERO leniency should you not be able to make it unexpectedly within the 48 cancellation policy. Also, to further blur the lines of communication, I received a text notification 32 hours prior to my reservation that stated: “Zozo's at Caneel Bay looks forward to seeing your party of 2 on 06/16/22 Thu 7:30 PM! Reply '1' to confirm you'll be there. Call +1-860-450-6649 to cancel. Text 'STOP' to stop receiving all text messages from OpenTable. See more: https://n.opn.tl/mvwwAFVj”. I called the number, but no luck with professional communication.

    Fabulous food and ambiance. Highly recommend for a special evening in St. John. The only downside is being in the middle of a historic resort that never re-opened after the hurricanes. I hope the National Park Service and islanders find a mutually agreeable way to redevelop the site and keep the restaurant.

    Food was well thought out and well prepared, but far too salty. I like salt, perhaps more than I should, and this found was borderline inedible due to the saltiness. For what you get on the four course offering, the price simply is not worth the ~$200 per person you’d end up paying after drinks (we had two per person). The setting is phenomenal and worth going to for a drink or snacks. The only other thing is that with the Caneel bay resort as it is (destroyed), the entire experience comes off as sort of a creepy tour park zombie experience where you roll up to the restaurant in a shuttle after driving through the remnants of the old resort. The result is you’re sort of expecting the waves of zombies to come though at any moment and the overall vibe is a bit unsettling. So if you’re in the market for an exclusive experience in a fantastic setting and don’t mind shelling out $200 a head for a salty meal, this is the spot for you. Glad I did it and tried it. Won’t be returning.

    The food, service and ambiance was Fantastic!!! It was an expensive meal with drinks and 2 ons. Our only issue was transportation. At the entrance to the resort, you must take a shuttle to where Zozo’s is located. On the way in, the shuttle was not problematic. After indulging ourselves and settling the bill of $425+, we exited and awaited our shuttle back to the entrance. And we waited, and waited some more…walked down to the numerous stairs (not sure if they have a handicapped accessible entrance) and spoke to the manager 3 times as we grew more frustrated at every passing moment. Zozo’s had to call a staff member in to shuttle us from the restaurant to our condo after waiting 45 minutes!!! Unacceptable!!! This issue alone soured the wonderful night and opportunity at Zozo’s. I’m disappointed I have yet to hear an apology from the manager or more appropriately the Owner! -Rebecca DOS: 6-9-22

    We usually love this place- today we were sat in a spot with no view and sadly next to a drunken group of 10 who had round after round of shots and got louder and louder- screaming and getting very out of hand. It’s difficult to go to a place this high end and hope for an intimate experience and get the exact opposite. We left halfway through our meal. We had to yell at one another to hear each other over the very loud screaming group next to us. When the table next to us asked the waiter to hold their phone so he could video them pouring shots down one another’s throats, we got the check. It’s disappointing that people can act like that at a place where you’re paying $200/person.

    Beautiful quiet setting on the beach at Caneel Bay. You will need to park and ride the shuttle to the restaurant. The four course prix fixe menu is a lot of food. Definitely come hungry. Best Painkillers we have had so far. If you want less food, you can order a la carte if you wish eat at the tables in the bar. The view from the bar is lovely. The view from the upstairs open walled restaurant is spectacular.

    We had a wonderful 40th anniversary dinner with great friends. The food was excellent, although the 4-course Prix Fixe dinners were just too much for any of us to finish. Our only disappointment was the sunset which did not have much color. Can’t blame that on anyone but Mother Nature. We’ll be back to Zozo’s on our next visit to Love City.
