“Almost a five”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

We had our best meal here. It would have been a full five for us if it weren't for these two things. A great restaurant begins with a good crispy crusted Italian or French bread, this bread could have bpreludes see into a ball and thrown, it was too soft and limp. The end of dinner decaffinated coffee was not good at all, could have been instant. Otherwise the entre snapper was GREAT and the staff and service was good. We would go back.

“Good for Lunch, Forget Dinner!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Great location right on the beach and good Mediterranean style menu - an ideal place for lunch but expect long lines to get in. Lovely laid back relaxed atmosphere and tasty food.

That is lunch …….. dinner and especially New Years Dinner is a whole different experience and in fact we wondered if we were even in the same place? Absolutely the worst New Year dinner we have had in years … arrived and seated at the windiest table there was out of the main restaurant area, asked to move and then put literally in a corner despite the fact that restaurant was far from full. No table cloths or effort made for New Year dinner other than really tepid glass of so called "champagne" and the tiniest hors d'oeuvre you have ever seen. This was followed by a really mediocre meal which had of course been marked way up in price for the evening and all served very quickly - so fast that our used plates/dishes were just put on one of the empty tables behind us so we were able to look at them for the rest of the meal which we thought was a nice touch?! We were rushed through our meal and got the impression that the staff just wanted us out of the way so they could get on with the party in the bar. NEVER AGAIN!

“Lovely, dog friendly and away from Duval Chaos ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

The food was delicious, staff friendly, especially with our two Labrador Retrievers. We went back two nights in a row because we loved the experience so much. The view is beautiful too!!!! One night wasn't busy and we had an awesome beach side table. The next night was jammed, and we had to sit on the smoking porch, so I would recommend calling ahead very strongly! Great menu, very upscale, but down to earth at the same time.

“Eat on the Beach in Key West”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We enjoyed our meal and were glad to see that they welcomed dogs along with their patrons. Food was very good and we were practically sitting in the ocean.
