    I took my mother and mother in law here for their birthdays and everything was perfect. We went with the 4 course experience and everything was authentic tasting, delicious and generous portions. The conquito was amazing. All the staff was friendly and attentive. Our waiter was the best. We will be returning and I highly recommend this restaurant

    4-course sampler with wine pairings: tartare; hog + buffalo; lobster; brownie a la mode. Hog + Buffalo was amazingly good! Impeccable service. Great evening! Order a Hunter’s Passion…it won’t disappoint.

    I have gluten and dairy dietary restrictions. The manager, Bubu, took considerable time going through the whole menu with me to review all options and the changes they could make to accommodate me while still proving an unforgettable food experience! Her knowledge was phenomenal! She spoke clearly and concisely so I had absolutely no questions and yet had all the information I needed to make my selection and how to communicate it to our server. While I’ve had servers with food knowledge in the past, Bubu was in another league! Bottom line, she made me feel included, important, and safe to eat there. On top of that the food was incredible!

    Food, service, staff, wine pairings all quite outstanding. We would would consider ourselves a bit snobbish when it comes to fine dining as we are both well experienced. That being said we are not snobbish in any other way other than we really appreciate good food!!! If you looking for a quiet “date night” the offerings of quiet/private space is limited and would specify when making a reservation . If there had been big tables around us when we dined it would have been less pleasurable. Definitely consider Lime Inn if you’ll be on island!

    Such a great night at Lime Inn. We were met by the owner who generously spent her time explaining the tasting menu and offering suggestions. Our drinks were excellent and the 4 course tasting menu was amazing. The portions were surprisingly large for a tasting menu and each one was delicious. The price is actually a really good value for what you get. We will be back!

    If you’re in St. John, you have to go to Lime Inn! Not only was the food absolutely incredible, the drinks and service was impeccable. Bubu was knowledgeable about every wine and wine pairing as well as so helpful in explaining the meal and courses. Lime Inn made my mom and brothers birthday so special! 10/10 would go again and highly recommend!

    This was the best dining experience that I have had in the longest time. Bubu, the hostess, set the stage for our evening. She was fun, knowledgeable, and helped our party of 4 navigate the menu. The 4 course tasting menu with wine pairing was phenomenal. Worth every dollar. I cannot recommend this place enough.

    Tried the new “Tasting Menu” (really just prix fixe) The quality was fine but the small plate courses were more like tiny so the value for the dollar is a little suspect. I also didnt appreciate the automatic %20 gratuity for our party of 6. I usually tip pretty well so taking that choice away felt pretty aggressive. Been coming here for years so i’ll give it a try next year but will prob sit at the bar with my wife and order a la carte.

    We ate at Lime Inn for our wedding anniversary. We chose their 4 course tasting menu. The options are great. There’s something for everyone. The staff is top notch. The owners Chelsea and Mark run the place which was started over 20 years ago by her parents. The manager, Siobhan was delightful. Our server Greeba was a darling. The Lime Inn is run like a family and all members work side by side helping one another. The restaurant is lovely Caribbean chic; Al fresco with lots of fans. The seating is comfortable and the ambience is lively yet not crazy or loud. We highly recommend you visit this restaurant. The food was delicious; the drinks were made well and you’re sure to have a good time. We will certainly go back if we return to St. John. Thanks to everyone who made our anniversary special. They even gifted us two Prosecco flutes.
