“Nice atmosphere, food pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

I loved the feel of this restaurant but i was expecting more based on the reviews. It was fine, just overpriced for the level of food quality and portion. My steak was cooked to temperature and was pretty good, just a little bland maybe and i was expecting too much. Nice wine selections.

“Awesome Meal. Awesome Service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2010

Michael was our server, ask for him because he was knowledgeable, nice, and ... just all around perfect. If Key West had formal dining this would be it, but even in tank tops and shorts you are made to feel welcome. The meal isn't going to be cheap but it is so worth it. My fillet melted in my mouth, and the macaroni and cheese was enough to inspire LUST!!! Don't miss out on the Oysters Rockefeller also. One of our best experiences in Key West, and it's not even on Duval.

“Good..but maybe skip the seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2010

Ok.. to be fair, its a steak house, but I had the Tuna and my wife had a fish dish also. It wasn't bad, but not really great either. That being said, I woud bet most people who go have the steaks..and I hear they are really good. So... if you go... skip the fish and dive into the meat!

“Best (Filet) Steak we ever had!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

From the moment we arrived to the time we left, we were in Steak and potato heaven!! The she crab soup was also the best soup I think I evere had. Donna said her spinach salad was also fantastic. The steak sauce the chef prepares along with the steak was also a great treat. Don't miss it!!

“Absolutely fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2010

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Key West. It was an amazing experience. We were seated in a private, very romantic room. Our waitress was Iris and she was wonderful. The service and food could not have been better. The macaroni and cheese has to be one of the best things I've ever put in my mouth. The Grouper Oscar was the best I have ever had and my husband said the Veal Chop was better than he had ever had. This was truly a wonderful night and I would highly recommend to others.
