We have been going to Key West for 30 + years and always look for different restaurants. When we saw the new, innovative menu at Square One we had to try it. The decor was nicely done and a big change from the original Square One. Lighting was perfect, the chairs very comfortable, service excellent and the sound level was... More

We had initially planned on a different restaurant with friends but when we got there, the wait was very long and the host directed us to Square One. And we can honestly say we will make a return visit the next time we are in Key West. The food was great and everyone's dishes exceeded our expectations. But the highlight... More

Went on a Friday without a reservation, no problem getting a table. Our waitress and the other service staff were very attentive and pleasant. My wife and I shared three small plates and all were superb. The price was right, the service spot on and the ambiance was perfect. The female manager was quite distant, I've eaten at many quality...

Good location, clean and chic restaurant. Very attentive staff (especially with the water - maybe over attentive?) I had the conch chowder which was very tasty. We both had hanger steak with chimichurri which had been left to rest too long and wasnt as hot as it should be. Stlil, it was one of the nicer restaurants and better meals... More

We are new visitors to Key West and have no personal experience with any restaurants here. We came upon Square One while walking up Duval St. one night and came back the next. We were not disappointed. The restaurant is in a small plaza off the street next to a few other restaurants and it's a very charming location. The... More

My wife and I were looking forward to this place because of the great reviews on Tripadvisor. Didn't meet up to the expectations Food was either to tasteless or much to salt. Flavors didn't go together very well Staff was friendly but sometimes nowhere to be seen. When we got the check there was service included, and a suggested gratuity.... More

The food is really good, though really expensive, even for Key West. The place itself is pleasant, but the waiter was SO unpleasant, almost rude, it spoiled our diner. And the service was included on the Check, no wonder why

Great Food, Chelsae Ambiance...a total discovery. Everything was nice and hot. Drinks actually had liquor in them. Super staff and quite on the ball. Manager was a little hard to understand with his French accent. Cleanest restaurant i have ever been in. A must when you visit Key West

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!
