“excellent from Start to finish...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

"She" kind of found this one after we spent so much time walking around,due to so many places being closed in September. She wanted a bistro style place and this fit the bill. The hostess was very nice and put us in a really great place so we could be close. The waiter was equally as friendly as he sat us side by side as we like to do! They had like half price apps and drinks from like 5 to 8 and that was great. I'd imagine they only do it during slow season, but not sure.

She gets Pinot, and i had a couple of the best Key Lime Martini's ever! They were delicious, glass rim dipped in graham cracker crust!! Yum!! I felt like I was eating them! I've had the best fish ever many many times in the Keys, and the grouper meal here was out of this world as was all the food. This place is now on our list of favs in KW and we'll be back here!!

“Superb happy hour value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013 via mobile

We were referred by our waiter at Denny's. We arrived during the last hour of happy hour: cocktails and appetizers were half price.

My martini was perfect, with a sidecar of additional drink. Wife's margie also excellent.

We ordered a 4 Cheese flatbread pizza, ahi tartare, and crab cakes. All were beyond delicious and totally filling. Couldn't finish, left stuffed to the gills, all for $32.00. Excellent service despite their computer being down for a while.

Five dots not enough to indicate how awesome it was!

“Lunch deal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This cavernous spot on Green Street serves up a good variety of delicious food. Sweet staff and full bar. They have extended a local's half-price offer with valid driver's ID. Must be fun at night!

“Great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Took my wife for her birthday dinner and it was great! Arrived in time for happy hour cocktails and appatizers. The tuna tartar was really awesome.
Love the 1/2 price for locals in sep and extended a little into oct. The wife ordered one of the flat breads and I had the Oso Buco. Delicious! I can't say enough about how good everything we ordered was. We will return. Our waiter Chris was great and gave perfect service.

“Love this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

Came in on a Monday. The bartender Pat was very attentive and introduced us to a regular named Fritz who informed us we had wandered into the best restaurant in Key West.
We had a few specialty drinks which Pat recommended and executed perfectly. We weren't too hungry so ordered a flatbread to share (sometimes restaurants frown on this, but not here). The food was amazing. So much so that we came back to see Pat (who our new friend Fritz told us is also the GM) again the next night for the short ribs. Omg they were amazing.
Can't wait to come here again on our next visit.
