Nice Location, friendly service, but not so good food.
We went there because of the good reputation and had a nice table on the porch. Beautiful view and a really nice waiter... But than the food arrived. The shrimp cocktail looked and tasted like the previously frozen shrimps from Publix. As main Course i had the lobster Oscar and i guess they must have cooked the poor Oscar for 30 minutes or so.
So my suggestion is: Go there, enjoy the view over the Marina and a beer or a wine, than go out for a tasty dinner.
What a great place. We read the negative review from a recent writer but decided to go because it was close and looked nice. We had GREAT appetizers (lobster and escarcot plus scallops) and soup plus wonderful service from Erica. The prices were not ultra expensive and the food and service were wonderful. It was my wife's birthday weekend and the restaurant is now on our must do list for a return. So happy we took a chance!
It was once the best place in town. But every time I've been there, I've had to send my food back to be cooked properly. And, hey! Rare is rare. There's none of this 'medium rare' stuff going on with me. When I order rare, I expect it to not be well-done . I've also gotten bad tuna there. It's heartbreaking to see an old KW institution behave so poorly! They do a wonderful spread, though, for a buffet if you're putting on a party. We attended a luncheon benefit last year that was excellent. It's just that if you're going for a romantic dinner, it's far too loud in there (nothing to soften the noise) and there's nothing that ruins a meal more than to have the timing ruined, when one has to send back an entree' while the other guest has to either (1)wait or (2) eat alone. We had too many romantic dinners ruined there to go back. As for the price? We're happy to pay well for a fabulous dinner. However, from here on, we'll just do the special events.
Absolutely the best restaurant in Key West. Outstanding service. Imaginative entrees like Brazil nut encrusted fish. Stunning deserts. Pricey, but worth it. Great wine list. Eating here will be the highlight of your trip.
PLEASE save your money. My husband and I went their last week, only because a lot of the resturants we wanted to go to were closed because of vacations. I ordered my filet to be cooked medium and it came out rare and it was covered in the gross sauce. I had the waiter take it back to the kitchen, when it came back to the table, it was the same steak!! The host admitted to me that they scrapped the sauce off and reheated it!!! I insisted on a new filet and when they brought me a new one it was well done! The food was not good. My salad was the only thing that was enjoyable. Our bill was $145!!!
