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

We love the new look at Square One. The new menu is great also. So many interesting choices. We had pot stickers, pulled pork sliders and calamari. Everything was delicious. We are looking forward to our next visit to try more things.

Just entering Square One off the courtyard of Duval Square is a fun new look and feel. I can imagine the young crowd will like hip art work. The dinner for 3 was a few small plates to share and a bowl bowl of the tomato soup were all tasty and worth the price. The dessert that might be their... More

Good meal, and very cool looking restaurant. Got seated on time for our reservation, although we probably did not need one. It was a warm night so I was glad that we were seated inside. The servers were friendly and nice but the food took a while to come out. It was worth the wait though, the duck was fantastic.

My husband and I walked by the restaurant and decided to give it a try after seeing the appealing looks of the outside. I had the Grouper and my husband had the Kobe beef burger. Both of our meals were delicious. The presentation as well as the way they serve the food is unique. The only negative might be it... More

We walked up and down Duval Street twice looking for the perfect salad and we finally found it. The portion was perfect and the price was appropriate
