Ate there in a party of 4 to celebrate my wife's birthday. Food was delicious and portions generous. Service excellent and decor lovely. We had the pig trotter and octopus appetizers; mixed mushrooms and swiss chard sides. Main courses were: Amish chicken, bream, monkfish, and I had the short ribs. The person who ordered the chicken said it was the... More

I guess I had pretty high expectations because I watch Top Chef and it being Tom's restaurant I assumed it would be great. There was really nothing great. The homemade chips were good. I had the grilled cheese with apple and onion, which is a dish I love - but I prefer mine at home better. I also tried a... More

While Craft has been given more average reviews in the past few years, I had such an amazing first experience, I defended it and bragged about the food for years. However, my last trip there was disappointing. The previously impeccable service was good but not top notch. The food was not as i remembered. I will always love the open... More

Came for a family dinner last night. The setting remains elegant yet understated. Quiet enough and tables spred out enough to allow soft conversation. The wait staff was efficient, but also warm and gracious. And the food! Standouts were the Loupe de Mer, a medley of mushrooms, and all of the desserts. A surprise were the excellent non-alcoholic drinks. Not... More

My wife and I celebrated our 47th wedding anniversary @ Craft. We had our usual braised short ribs and amish chicken...they were sublime. In addition we had the Brussels sprouts...to die for. Lastly, Peter and the staff made our evening very special. See you next year, Mike and Ellie

Recently I was in NYC with my two dear friends from home here in Key West. Last year a group of five of us from here dined at CRAFT (it was my choice as we all take turns researching/choosing) a fine dining establishment. we always like to try something new and we did two of our four nights together in...

My wife and I had a lovely dinner there on a Monday night on our vacation. We shared the beef short ribs, braised lamb, carrots and gnocchi. The short ribs and lamb were tender and delicious. Formal, but not overly so, atmosphere and intimately ambiance.

The atmosphere is great. So, even though we were seated quite a bit later than our reserved time, the wait at the bar was pleasant enough. The food was meat-and-potatoes plain; good tasting, but not particularly creative or unique. About a third of the menu is somewhat confusingly taken up by a list of farms where supposedly the food originates... More

this is a hard place to put a finger on. The decor is superb - the gleaming custom brass basin in the men's room is worth a trip all by itself. One thing they got perfect, so rare in restaurants, is sound control. The place was full of happy and animated diners, but the noise level was comfy and easily... More
