My wife and dined here on our last night. We sat at a table right in the corner of the pouch in the picture and watched the world go by. The service was great and the food was easily the best we had all week. And we ate well every night. The owner came to our table and talked to... More

My husband and I visit Key West whenever we can and while there we try to find special out-of-the-way restaurants. Flaming Buoy is located in a residential neighborhood in old town. You can easily find it with a map or GPS. This is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in. The food is interesting and perfectly prepared. They... More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor. We were looking for a nice place to eat that wasn't on Duval street. This place was super delicious and we loved our waiter! He was the icing on the cake in this experience. We walked in not knowing we needed reservations and we weren't turned away even though this place was limited on... More

Spending the first night in Key West I went into Tripadvisor for a good restaurant. This one popped up in 15th place with many positive reviews. Looking at the pictures - why not try something unsual. Told my wife and two daugthers (6 & 10) to get ready and get going. Had a surprise. When we went down the narrow... More

We live in Key West and are sorry that we had not visited sooner. Great find in a quaint neighborhood. My lobster thermador was delicious. We didn't make reservations, wish we had because the inside had a/c....but with kids, reservations are sometimes not an option... anyways I will definitely return because I want to try the lobster mac n' cheese....

The intimate setting nestled in a cute neighborhood sets the mood as soon as you walk in. The staff was super friendly and the food was outstanding. I highly recommend the bacon wrapped scallops. They literally melted in my mouth.

Very intimate dining with great service. The food was delicious and creative. The Lobster Macaroni and Cheese was to die for along with the banana bread french toast dessert.

This restaurant is incredible. So incredible, I am actually writing a review (this is not my type of thing). The staff was inviting and sociable. They were friendly but not in your business throughout the meal. The atmosphere was perfect for my wife and me, small and cozy but decorated elegantly. The restaurant lets the food do most of the...
