OMG - What a great meal!

Didn't have a reservation, but still got a table. Wish we could have sat by the window with fantastic view, even though several tables were empty for the duration. Otherwise, the entire meal was fantastic! The service was a bit erratic, we had two different waiters and a bit of a disconnect... read more

Greeted promptly upon arrival. Seated within a few minutes despite not having a reservation. Waitstaff was attentive and quick. Ordered the Filet Mignon and it was delicious. Came prepared exactly as requested. Great experience and fantastic food!

Our concierge recommended this place for Happy Hour but we liked it so much we stayed for dinner. It was very crowded serving delicious food.

The food is awesome and delicious, fresh... and served with a nice presentation. The chairs should be updated... my chair looked to be about 100 years old, worn and tattered. That would be the only reason I did not give 5 stars. The view on the water is superb.

We arrived about an hour before happy hour ended at 7 and barely were seated before it was over. The hostess was very sweet and helpful. We waited by the bar and once we were seated, the wait staff took our order quickly so we could still get happy hour prices. We all enjoyed our choices here and the prices... More

if you want to spend a little more, have excellent food and a stunning view this is the place. We had fish and the T bone. The bread came warm and everything was delicious

We recently ate at Commodore in Key West. We had a private room for a party of 16. Service and food was wonderful. The waterfront atmosphere and location within walking distance to Duval Street activities and night life was an added bonus.

We went here for s special valentines dinner on a recommendation from our hotel concierge, disappointing. Great location overlooking the busy harbor, nice service, friendly/ attentive. Both main courses lobster and prime rib were bland and uneventful. A shame considering the big ticket. Maybe they were overwhelmed by the demand on v day?

We stopped by here for a late lunch. Nice view of the harbour. Chicken panini wasn't. It was grilled on a bun and the sauce ran all over the plate. Good drinks. Service was ok.

The restaurant has an upscale feel and nice views of the harbor. The prices aren't too bad, but it's not cheap. The food was good but not amazing. Mixed seafood dinner and yellowfin dinner was ordered. Very good apple cobbler for dessert.
