My wife and I had dinner here. Ryan our waiter was friendly, attentive, and informative. They have a new cocktail menu that is fairly extensive. I had the short ribs, my wife had the pasta special. Both were excellent. Try the beet carpaccio appetizer-delicious! Overall great food and great service.

I have mixed feelings about the place. I have waited 30 min to get my appetizer, but the double black Belgium ale was nice and cold. Now to the food: the fried calamari had a Thai flavor with chili peanut spicy toppings but the sauce made them a bit soft. As main entree I had the crispy yellow tail snapper... More

My meal should be rated as poor but everyone else was just OK. I had the crispy snapper which was cooked very well but the potatos were not cooked and the balsamic sauce was overpowering. One other person had the same issue with the vegies in her meal. Definitely would not go back. The waiter was friendly but did not... More

Liked the food but the cocktails were above and beyond. Make sure you ask about the desserts. We ordered the carrot cake, wanting a little something sweet after dinner. Well we learned "after" from our waiter that it was vegan. He told us only after as if he was tricking us. Which we didnt appreciate because it wasn't sweet like... More

Very pricy for the amount of food you get but food and wine was very good. Excellent server, and just a very unique interior design. We enjoyed our meal, ordered wine and a few appetizers to share. Scallops, tenderloin and gyoza were all great.

Very nice place, not quite as funky and "old Key West", but comfortable and just a great place for dinner or appetizers. We ate here on our first night in Key West, and it was one of my favorites. Our server was charming, but not intrusive. We just had appetizers and a bottle of wine, and everything was great and... More
