We were the patrons servers hate. It was nearly 9:00 when we walked in, yet we were welcomed with warmth. Our server was attentive and eager to please. He gave us excellent suggestions for dinner and wine pairings. Food arrived quickly. The restaurant is lovely and in a mall area right off Duval Street with other eating establishments near. We...

I've lived in Key West for almost 4 years and my dining experience at Square One has got to be the best dining experience I've ever had! Key West has a great selection of fresh local restaurants but this one tops them all. The service was excellent, attentive but not overwhelming, the appetizer and the entree were cooked to perfection... More

We finally made it in for brunch on the recommendation of a friend. The very unusual but accessible menu features many meatless or vegan options, a definite plus. My veggie benefict featured a "root vegetable cake" instead of an English muffin which, while tasty, was more like a loose pile of shredded veggies than a formed cake or hash brown.... More

We went there for brunch and had tuna sandwich and eggs benedict which were OK. Cone of fries were tasty. The dining area is comfortable and decorated well. Service was not good, the waiter completely forgot about us. It wasn't busy at all--maybe only 5 other tables in a fairly large indoor and outdoor seating area. We sat inside and... More

Nice atmosphere Excellent food and cocktails. Mussels and Tostini appetizers were very good. I had the braised short rib with Mascarpone polenta and it was Absolutely Delicious. And it was a large portion I had to force myself to finish because it was that good!

The food was good and the service was excellent. Not sure how to describe the menu. A mixture of different styles but everything was excellent. Specialty drinks from the bar were excellent

Went in late night to dine, but the service and food was still great. Had tuna tar tar for an appetizer, blackened Mahi for an entree, both very impressive!
