My husband and I spent his birthday on this island and we loved it. The dinners at The Dining Room were magical. The sun would set just at dinner time and the Key deer would appear from nowhere. Something I will never forget. The food was delicious and the selection was always a delight. The best part.....no children!

A beautiful ferry boat ride out to the island!! The atmosphere is one of the best it's true island dining. Expect to pay big bucks!! Do not come with the idea you can walk around and see the island or walk or dine by their beaches....it is all private area for those staying at the island. So what you get... More

This is the second time at this restaurant for a special occasion. The ambiance is really nice but when it comes to food portions my meal resembled an appetizer. We were very disappointed ! I understand paying more for the uniqueness and exclusiveness of Little Palm but it should include reasonable portions too. In addition, the pace of the service... More

This is an amazing place to have dinner while a bit expensive it is so worth the visit. We have gone there several times ove the years always in time for sunset. The Key Deer walk freely among the tables the food is totally awesome. The boat ride out there alone is a lovely experience. It is dressy casual and... More

As most of the reviews have articulated, the setting is truly beautiful, Boat ride over adds to the allure. So when you have this picture perfect ambience, why spoil it by serving up a tantalizing meal in just over 30 minutes? We specifically asked our waitress to bring our bottle of wine first so we could relax, have a sip,... More

Nothing more to say than "Fabulous". i recommend the Chef's Tasting, which is a sampling of 4 menu items plus 4 dessert items. Ambience, food and service were outstanding. And If you're lucky, you will be visited by a Key Deer.

After traveling past Little Palm Island in our boat for our fishing trips for the last 5 years, and always admiring how beautiful it looked, we finally took in their Sunday Brunch. Cost was $75 per person (less locals discount if you are one). Included the boat ferry to the island, mimosas, bloody mary's, fabulous salad, fruit, and breakfast bar.... More

This is a great place to eat. If you are staying on the island, I would recommend getting the meal plan, as the food is really outstanding.
