We went for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. We both got the surf and turf and it was absolutely amazing. You could practically cut the filet with just a fork. I read some of the reviews and people complain about the price but it is fine dining and steak and seafood so I am not sure what... More

Snooty and unaccommodating from the first time I called to get a reservation to paying the check, but we were able to snag a private outdoor table that was just lovely. That didn't make up for the poor service, though. When we could get attention, our server made it perfectly clear that serving us was a chore - and we... More

When sent back they recooked them but my wife's then got cold wAiting. They knocked it off the bill but what a waste of... More

On our last night in Key West, we wanted to "do it up right." As such, we had our farewell dinner at the Commodore Waterfront Restaurant. A very good choice!! The entire dining experience was well above expectations! The restaurant was beautiful and very well decorated in a mariner theme. It has a gorgeous view of the waterfront marina. The... More

We ended up here as everywhere else was packed so it was an unplanned visit. Contrary to the ranking on Trip Advisor, if you want a tad more formal dinner, this has to be your choice. We decided to go all out with the surf and turf and it was an excellent choice. The lobster melted in your mouth but... More

We came to celebrate my brothers birthday. It was a disappointment, mainly due to a waiter that was as taken out of a time where waiters tried to show you that you did not really qualify for being waited on by him. He seems genuinely not interested in creating a good atmosphere and being part of making our evening a... More

Very beautiful building located right on the marina. The view is outstanding! We ate here for dinner on Saturday, October 18th, 2014. The windows were open and it was just a great experience. The menu has something for everyone. We'd had our fill of seafood for the day and were looking for a good steak - and The Commodore did... More

Beautiful restaurant with an equally gorgeous view on the waterfront and a very attentive wait staff. We ordered the yellowtail snapper, prime rib and surf and turf. The portions for all of our main course dishes were generous, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious! All around great experience.
