Me and a friend of mine came here yesterday (12/14/14) for Sunday Brunch and his birthday. We had reservations at 11:30 outside and after the hostess was having troubles finding our reservation, the rude manager came out and said (in a very rude manor) all they had was indoor seating available or at the outside bar. There was clearly several... More

I had one breakfast and one dinner. I chose to sit outside. Cool both times as you are sitting off the water. I enjoyed both meals. Staff were friendly.

subpar quality on the food, including presentation. for an eatery at the Westin, I expected more. The waffle was a miss. The french toast was a better choice. And they ran out of hot chocolate for the kids (??). When asked for chocolate milk (heated), they couldn't even do that. zero zero on customer service. Loved the location of the... More

Looking for a great restaurant on the water in Key West, do not overlook this bistro at the Westin Hotel. Perhaps one of the most upscale properties in the city, you will be pleasantly surprised by the ambiance whether dining inside or outside on the waterfront promenade. Service is exceptional and the chef prepares great food for every taste. If... More

We stopped for coffee as it was a very cold windy day. We decided to have lunch. I had a steak salad and my husband had the grouper sandwich. It was delicious. We shall go again.

although Florida seems to be flooded with waiters and waitresses from the former Soviet Union, some of the have adapted to Service, some think they are still in Russia where Service is unknown.

The main reason we ate here was it was attached to the hotel we were staying in. There was a noisy French performer with cats out on the street which detracted somewhat from the location. The food was OK but nothing astounding.

We had just driven in from Miami and settled in at the Westin. Unlike us, we decided to make life easy and eat at the hotel. Normally, I avoid both chains and hotel restaurants, choosing instead to eat local. While I wouldn't rate this excellent, the food was good, sitting near the ocean and watching the waves was relaxing. The... More

Food was over priced, thus the value rating. Fortunately we arrived just in time to get a good seat to enjoy the beautiful sunset. That's really the only reason we chose this place for dinner. The food was good but not overly good. If we were to return to Key West, we would probably find a different location for dinner... More

Most hotel restaurants a pretty boring. You cannot say this about Bistro 245. Right on the ocean front, and if you like people watching, you can see plenty when the cruise ships are in. Makes for a fun time when relaxing. Cannot really imagine why people would sit inside, but it looked very nice, and spacious.
