Very unique food and drink menus with an awesome atmosphere! I felt like we were on cooking show "chopped" because of how tasty and unique the meal was. We hit many highly rated restaurants a in key west and this was probably our favorite!

Visited last week and we had a lovely meal. Was lured in by laid-back chic decor and a delicious sounding menu. The food didn't disappoint and the staff were helpful, knowledgeable and v friendly (without being over-bearing and interrupting). Would recommend to anyone who likes good food and a relaxed atmosphere

The service for us and the few other diners seemed erratic. We both requested rare steak, it arrived on cold plates well done. It seemed to have been held back to allow for the frites to cook. The desserts did not look very attractive and did not taste too good either. Seems odd to serve water in heavy jam jars.... More

I just ate here a few days ago with some friends. I come to the keys 8-10 times a year and I shy away from restaurants on Duval Street so I was a little hesitant to try this place. My friends all got the Kobe beef burgers and loved them. I got the skirt steak and must say it was... More

This is a first time post for me. I am not big on giving reviews and feel that we are sometimes even deciding the fate of hard working restaurant and hotel people by simply writing a few words based solely on our own opinions. Even a bad restaurant is hard work and who are we anyway! Suffice it to say... More

As we drank our way through Key West we got many recommendations from local bar tenders on places to eat. We kept hearing try Square1. So we checked out the menu it looked great on paper. Devils on horse back to start (topped with a cheese fondue), 2 Kobe beef burgers topped with fontina, and many hand crafted cocktails to... More

We were looking for a restaurant to try "something different" and we found it! Entirely satisfying conch chowder, pulled pork sliders, and potstickers. All the items were delicious and hit the spot. We had excellent service and the staff seemed genuinely happy to see us!!

We discovered Square One (or SQ1) while searching for another restaurant on the same square (Duval Square). My wife spotted it and was impressed by the contemporary look and overall atmosphere. So, we decided to try it. Good choice! We sat inside because it was a very warm, humid night and the restaurant and bar have a very contemporary feel,... More
