    My daughter loved her food, I did not but we were served an hour and a half after seated and I think they forgot our order. Menu very small so might be challenging to find an item that suits your palate. The setting the the best part of this restaurant

    This restaurant features very good food and the best ambiance on the Island. Sitting outside at the covered dining section or the Grotto allows you to watch the waves crashing on the rocks right near your table. Definitely a must while in St. Croix.

    In the restaurant industry location is critical to success. Besides great food and very good service, this is one of the best non gated locations you can access on the entire island if not the best. Ambiance is 10 stars! Make a reservation is best insurance for getting a good seating.

    Want a great view near the water and a long dinner then this is the place for you. I like a celebratory dinner to not feel rushed but we had a half hour or more between our two dishes and our steak dish. In total the dinner took 2 hours. Loved the tuna slices and the crab dip. The steak slices tasted great but were chewy. Not what I would expect for the cost. Since this was my husband’s birthday dinner which the waitress was aware of, we ordered dessert which were very small slices. No free dessert here like other restaurants! The only bright spot was our waitress Jada. Wouldn’t recommend.

    AMA was a beautiful spot to have a sunset dinner. We were seated in the main dining area. I had hoped for a more private table down in their water level patio, but the rain moved in toward the end of our meal and we would’ve had to move up from our seats, so it worked out. EJ was our server and he was phenomenal! Very personable and knew the menu inside and out. He helped us “build” our meal with spot on recommendations from drinks to dessert and everything in between! Only negative I’d give is there was a light right above our table that continued to flash because the bulb was not in all the way. It was relatively distracting through the meal, and the internet service went down so the drink orders from the server to the bar were very slow. We hung at the bar after dinner and the bartender, Amanda, had new drinks that she whipped up for us and talked to us the whole time we were there. Very nice and perfect personality for that position. An awesome meal and experience all around!

    Service was amazing. EJ took great care of us. Menu was confusing all lumped together like that. Very overpriced and stingy portions. Especially tuna crude. No salads to choose from and there is plenty of greens at Quality the restaurant purveyor. I wish they’d bring back the mushroom goat cheese salad. The chipotle Caesar is not a good dinner starter. Even though I would’ve gotten it just to have some greens. Please don’t call anything a soufflé if it is not a soufflé. It implies your customer is an idiot and doesn’t know what one is. Food was underwhelming overall especially for that price point. Will be back only when menu changes to something that works.

    We had the pleasure of dining at Ama on 10/7. We were running a little late for our reservation, so I sent an email notice via Open Table and received a prompt reply (no problem!). Our server, Laurie (?), was outstanding and very attentive. The crab dip appetizer was an excellent starter, followed by the almond encrusted mahi over the pureed sweet potatoes and kale: very nice. We finished with the lemon crack dessert and requested an extra dollop of the homemade whipped cream. The wine and port selections were on point. Overall, a very lovely evening. We're looking forward to our next dining experience at Ama!

    We were greeted warmly when we arrived. Prior to that, we had a response to our Open Table query about seating and a vegetarian diner. The entire dinner exceeded my already high expectations from previous experiences there—the drinks were so fun and the dinners delicious. Our server, Laura, was friendly and cert professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend making AMAa dining destination when you visit. I always want to come to watch the sun set.
