The food , views, and service were the equivalent of a five star restaurant. What was not to like? Everything was first class and the Sunday buffet is not to be missed.

The boat ride out to this restaurant is just the beginning of a very classy outing. Went for brunch with my wife and in-laws and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. VERY friendly and helpful staff and great food. The porch is well decorated and authentic. The views are spectacular no matter where you sit. This is not an inexpensive meal but... More

The experience starts with a short, scenic ferry ride with other guests to the island. The setting is idyllic. Our table overlooked the lovely garden and beach. The service was courteous and professional, the food was excellent starting with the crab cake appetizer and ending with a shared Key Lime Pie to die for. Will we return? Yes, without a... More

Been here many times. You have to make a reservation so they can get you on a ferry. It is an impressive event to eat here, so bring your friends. it is a private resort that opens the dining to the public. Plan on spending some time here. The setting is lovely. You will feel like you have escaped reality... More

Loved the fact that the island was extremely private and dining area quaint. The menu was simple yet tasteful allowing all persons in the party to find something fitting for their diet. A must for any keys traveller.

Everything was perfect...sunset ride to the island by boat, they were given a table right on the beach overlooking the ocean and sunset. They had a lovely meal of perfectly cooked mussels, seared grouper and poached lobster with white wine wine andthey... More

I was looking forward to our Valentine’s dinner at The Dining Room at Little Palm Island, first because the restaurant got great reviews, and second because we wanted to see if the resort was someplace we might want to stay when we returned to the Keys. We arrived at the ferry station around 7:00 as we had 7:30 dinner reservations.... More

This resort is situated on an island, and you can only get there by boat... the view from the restaurant is to die for, and you can even have a table on the beach facing the sunset... the food is very well prepared (we had lobster bisque and Maine lobster poached in butter), the service is excellent, and the wine...

We dined here with a group of 12 last Saturday. We arrived on a our boat and set up ahead of time to dock. The dock is not very big and you will pay a premium to dock but it's OK. We started off with drinks and they have a huge list of drinks and wine to please anyone. For... More
