Went here for a wedding reception. It was the worst restaurant experience I have had in a long time. It took almost 4 hours to get our entrees. Most were cold. Some of us did not even get our food (they forgot). When we complained the management did not care. The servers did their best, but the management running the... More

I have visited the Key West area quite a bit and have never been to Square One. It had availability on Open Table, so I made a reservation. It was a little early for the popular dinner time, so a reservation was not needed, but always glad to have one just in case. Service was friendly and attentive. Drink replenished... More

A hidden Jewel under the trees. The food here is delicious and our waitress Donna treated us like old friends. Definitely worth the trip!

This place is very pretty inside. Loved the decor. The menu was varied, not overwhelming (which we like). I had the grilled cheese and tomato soup. It was WONDERFUL. My friends had a cuban sandwich and said it was the worst they ever had. Despite the fact that the restaurant was practically empty, the service was poor. The waitress even... More

We stopped by for a brunch. We arrived near the end of the brunch so the place was pretty empty. We started with an order of biscuits and gravy to share. They were probably the best I ever had. A unique flavor different from the traditional southern style. We also had the adult grilled cheese with tomato soup. It was... More

Being in Key West and ending up in the Duvl street this hotel is a good place to eat. The food is tasty and the service was good. What I have never seen before: I was not sure about the beer so the waitress brought me a small glass to try it.

After reading reviews we headed to this place and ordered French toast and a burger. The burger was beyond burnt and was very hard. The lady said they could make another one or something else. I picked scrambled eggs. In the Eggs I found at least 3 hairs and more in the sauce. The service was very slow and it... More

The food was excellent but the service was not very good. The waitress served our drinks then our meal and never once came back to see if we wanted another drink or anything else. It took forever to get our check. I almost never give a tip less than 20% but I only gave 10% in this case.

Excellent food in an american fusion style. My plate, a half portion of seared tuna with horse radish soya sauce is so tasty. My friend ordered other dishes they said good too.
