We visited for the first time and were delighted with the atmosphere, food and service. The restaurant has ample outside and inside space, both provide an excellent dining environment. Staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. Really pleased with our vegetarian meals, this is not a specialist eating place but provides plenty of options. I've eaten a veggie burger at numerous...

My wife and I really like what they are doing at SQ1 now. It's a dining experience not easily found in KW. Great ambience and a funky menu. The Duck is a dish ya'll easily come back for again. Our server Mark was great. Attentive, knowledgeable, and a bit funny with the joke. We were happy to see they brought... More

We were in key west 2 weeks ago and not only was this our best restaurant experience on our vacation but more importantly our most memorable in the last 18 years we have been married. We were there celebrating our anniversary and even though we didn't tell the bartender he picked up on the fact we were celebrating something special.... More

We booked a table on Christmas day and we were excited to try this place. I wish I could give this place ZERO stars but trip advisor doesn't allow that! We got there few minutes earlier, three ladies were at reception, and they couldn't make their minds were to sit us. Eventually, after about 10 minutes of absolute nonsense from... More

We are so sad that you were disappointed with your experience at SQ1. It is unfortunate that you found the service lacking. Christmas night is a very busy evening for restaurants in Key West and we can certainly understand how holiday dining can feel at times both hectic and stressful to the dining public. While all holidays are busy, we... More

Traveling alone in a place as Key West is always a bit weird. But I was well received, got a nice table and had a perfect meal. Perfect steamed mussels as a starter and pan roasted grouper with a bean cassoulet was just gorgeous. Staff was excellent, so a very good experience.

Sat at one of the high tops next to the bar and ordered a bunch of appetizers instead of meals and washed them down with some great mixed drinks. Had the artisanal meat and cheese platter, spinach gyoza, jalapeño poppers and beef carpaccio. They were all great but if I could only have one I would go with the meat... More

We were looking for an early dinner, and decided to order from the happy hour menu here. The waitress took our drink order, and when one member of our party ordered an iced tea she said very rudely, "I'll have to see if I can find an iced tea." She took a ridiculously long time to bring our drinks, including... More

We were drawn to this restaurant because of the menu and the energy of the place. Unfortunately, while the food was good, the experience was a disappointment because of a series of problems. First, our waitress neglected to mention that several items on the menu were not offered anymore. I made my choice of starter and main, only to be... More

Our waiter was fantastic - friendly, terrific recommendations and attentive when we needed it! Shrimp and grits were outstanding and the grouper was fresh and cooked perfectly. This place is a little trek from the Key West Marina where we stayed, but it turned out the long walk was very well worth it! We tried a different restaurant every evening... More
