Wanted to be near the waterfront for sunset... Hotel concierge recommended the Commodore due to its location, menu and... FREE PARKING... which in key West can be a big deal.. Food was awesome.. I had the Mahi Mahi and Sea Scallops and my wife had the Delmonico Steak... both cooked perfectly (Bernaise sauce for Mahi Mahi was outstanding.) Get there... More

Nice view and service but not all of our party liked their entree particularly given the price. Do not recommend the lobster cake. Too much filler and had a fried taste and appearance. On the other hand my daughter loved the mahi mahi. One in the group thought the mixed seafood was good. The other so so. I wouldn't go... More

The main course was okay, but not great. Do not order their salad with their signature dressing. Spicy and tasted ugly. And I am a big salad eater and I love many different kind of dressings. The waiter saw we didn't eat the salad and didn't even ask why or offer a different one of anything. We left feeling ripped... More

The Commodore was recommended to us by our wedding planner as a great place to eat dinner after our sunset sailboat wedding. The menu looked great, so we made a reservation. The view was beautiful, the location convenient. The food was average. Not bad, not great. Good bread, good veg, great salads, amazing lobster. You can get the same steak... More

My wife and I chose Commodore Waterfront Restaurant for dinner this evening. My wife started with the caprese salad which she rate atop notch. I had the conch chowder which was average. We both had the their menu item named "Tips and Scampi". The entree was OK the tips were awesome but the scampi was chewy. Service was very good.

We visit KW almost every year and this was our first time here.Its a bit of fine dining only if you dine upstairs.... the downstairs is like a pub. The food was delicious ~ I especially enjoyed the crab stuffed artichoke hearts and the snapper in lemon sauce Yumm!! We will definitely be going back next time.

Mt wife and I came across this restaurant while walking around the town. The menu looked limited but the view from the dining room looking over the marina seemed pretty cool. We didn't have a reservation but showed up at 6:30 just before the sunset folks from Mallory Square broke up. There were only 2 or 3 other tables actually... More

After a Sunset drink at the Tikki Bar, we went across the street to the Commodore Waterfront Restaurant. We had a window table overlooking the harbor- The caesar salad was large enough to split with my husband. He had the lobster and, of course, I tasted it- I had scallops and they were equally as good. The martinis were delicious... More
