We're still thinking "what if?" What if all of our drinks were as good as the first one?... If we didn't have to wait sooooooo long for our food? If the small plates we initially ordered had properly come out BEFORE the additional plate we ordered 20 minutes later? The menu was creative and the food was tasty, though lukewarm... More

First of all, Square One is a very attractive restaurant. The interior design really sets the stage for a pleasant evening. Second, the menu is varied, with lots of enjoyable small plates so you don't feel like you have to commit to a huge entree but will still leave feeling satisfied. And third, the cocktail menu is terrific, with lots... More

We had the most delightful brunch at Square One. Our waiter, Adam, is the best waiter I have had in a long time. He knew the menu and portion sizes and so could recommend the best choices for our group. We took all his suggestions and were licking our chops!!!! What did we have you ask? Croque Madame, definitely shareable... More

After dinner in several Key West establishments we finally found both great service and food. Great craft cocktails and variety of fresh plates - small and large and balance between fish, meat, and vegetarian offerings. One of the best cups of French Onion soup - right amount and not too salty or cheesy. Homemade pretzel bread bites were delicious.

The conch soup is outstanding. The food is way better than you would think based on the outside of the restaurant - the restaurant is new and bright unlike most Key West funky restaurants. Located in sort of a pedestrian mall. Enjoy

My wife and I decided to eat here on our last night of vacation. We opted for a seat outside even though it was in the mid 60's. They had electric heaters pointing down on us that gave us just the right amount of warmth. It had great ambiance. Very romantic at night. The service was very good and the... More

Friendly service and great food. We had lobster rolls, lobster carpacio and calamaris. Everything was superb. The interior is tasteful and the outdoor furniture is comfortable as well.
