Our wedding dinner

We had a great experience at The Commodore after the ceremony! The scenery was beautiful, the food was excellent, and our waiter was very good! Very glad we chose The Commodore.

Kareem was wonderful to seat us on the outdoor patio -- such a special night to be across from the marina with a breeze in the air after a full day at Key West. Our meal was the BEST -- my seafood medley was filled with scrumptious lobster, scallops, mussels and other fish in a lovely, light garlic sauce -... More

Nice place, friendly maitre'd and service. The drinks were excellent. We shared a salad which was very good. My wife had a yellow tail snapper entree which was a bit oily, but good. I had the lobster/crab cakes which were dry, bland, and freezer burned. I still like the place, but feel it's dropped a notch.

We celebrated my birthday while in Key West- and the service and food was fabulous at the Commodore! The mixed seafood platter is one of the best meals I have ever had - and don't miss the key lime pie (a Key West staple) but especially delicious here.

Excellent restaurant. This is the third time that we have eaten here and every time it has been great. The food, service and view is fantastic. A great Key West experience.

This was a good experience after almost a week of unimpressive stops while in Key West. We went with a very large group of 22 people and had a private room. Service and food quality was excellent. I would recommend the filet and/or lobster. The lobster cake is an absolute MUST!!!

We liked the elegant, waterfront dining upstairs. Great menu of fresh grouper and conch chowder! We liked it upstairs better for the quiet more upscale dining than the downstairs which was more of a tavern and fried foods, but if you like the tavern style and more funky, wither is a great choice!

Asked a couple of locals to recommend a restaurant for dinner and the Commodore was suggested both times. Upstairs dining overlooking the marina and gulf. Open air, lovely elegant décor and atmosphere, excellent and attentive service and the meal was delicious. The only disappointment was we were told it was sunset viewing dining which wasn't the case.

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
