“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

My wife and I are about a month away from our next trip to Key West, and this time we are actually considering dining here twice! We went for the first time last August for our anniversary and this is a huge reason why we are copying last year's trip. I had the paella and it was outstanding, my mouth is watering just thinking about it. This was literally almost a year ago and I can't stop thinking about what a great experience it was. The view was incredible and the drinks were perfect. I am literally putting my money where my my mouth is this time around, and we are eating here twice, that's how wonderful it was. It was pretty pricey, BUT the attire is like resort wear, I was was wearing slacks and my wife wore a dress, but there were dudes there in guayaberas

“Delicious food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. The scallop piccata was one of the best meals I have ever eaten! The scallops were seared perfectly and the sauce was unbelievably delicious! My husband loved his meal too. I would definitely recommend this place, even though it's a little pricey.

“Fabulous food, atmosphere, and staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

What a great find. Food was so good at lunch we had to return for dinner and were not disappointed. The key lime pie is the best we've had from Charleston to Savannah to the Keys. Out of 10 different dishes we could not choose our favorite. Would definitely return.

“Wish it would have been more....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

I decided to ignore some of the reviews when I should have known better. The ambiance was beautiful, the views were perfect, our server LOUIS was attentive and extremely knowledgable, but the food was not what I expected. My grouper was dry and the surf and turf for 2=$135 and I could have made it better myself. YUCK. Huge disappointment. Go for views and dessert. You want a REAL top notch dining experience? Hideaway Cafe in Grassy Key EXCEPTIONAL MEAL AND SERVICE with extensive wine list. Half price 10xs better food!!!

“Lovely evening”

Service and food very good
A little cramped inside but too hot to go out
The steak was excellent and so were the cocktails
