Sat outside, two couples, warm night but lots of quiet fans. Great waiter, very good drinks and food. All in all a very pleasant way to have dinner and rub elbows with the KW culture walking by. I normally don’t like street side dining but...this worked (although they have interior seating.) Very impressed with wine list, menu and a waiter that really followed our relaxed time format. This evening was a big hit for me. Will be back soon.More

My family and I loved all that we ate, the service and the ambiance. The grand lobster was very good, the salads were yummy and the pastas delicious.

We ordered the Chef’s plate. Four of us returned the lobster. It tasted nasty and smell’d even worse. Also we ordered the red curry. The Chicken was as dry as it gets. This place is not worth a visit. Stay away and order a burger...across the street.More

I took my spouse out for a date night last evening to Grand Cafe. I am a concierge in Key West, so I eat out frequently. That way I can advise my clients where to go to dinner. I have been sending quite a few...to the Grand, but haven't been there in a while.... The dinner was an absolute delight as were the entire staff. Our waitress, Dana was terrific. We had the surf and turf and It was delicious!! Cudos to all. It was great!!!More

We sat outside and watched the throngs of people go by. Quite entertaining on a Saturday night. Live music across the street, too. Makes a really fun experience. We ordered several items from the appetizer portion of the huge menu and enjoyed sharing. The wine...list is extensive. Recommend the crab cakes - some of the best I’ve ever tasted.More

I was told that they have the best pasta but I never got a chance to taste it. The bruschetta was outstanding! On both visits, I walked through the house to the bar in the back with its fun and pretty ceiling. The entire property...is lovely and dining here must be great but I never got the chance. The bar staff is sweet and I enjoyed my visits both times. I can't wait to come back for more bruschetta!More

Had a lovely meal at the Grand, nice tasty food, well presented. Nice surroundings, sat at the top overlooking other diners and the street scene of Duval. Couldn’t fault the service, polite and friendly young lady. It is a place that is a little more...expensive but hey you’re on vacation. Will definitely come again, was a lovely evening.More

This restaurant was so unique and interesting! Since we were staying with a large group, we reserved in advance and were very happy with the service. The restaurant atmosphere was very old timely and unique and the food was great. Beautiful bar setup as well!

My wife and I enjoyed our visit to the Grand Cafe. The setting is really nice with wonderful ambience with perfect weather. The wine list is really superb with about 32 pages of options. Our server, Jarrod, was very good. I had the local sautéed...snapper which was really excellent with a shrimp cream sauce. My wife’s lightly blackened mahi was good, but a little too dry. The key lime pie was good, but not tart enough. Our bottle of Seauoia Grove Chardonnay was excellent. We really enjoyed our evening and would likely return.More

While the plates are overpriced for what you get, as usual in Key West, this place has a few redeeming qualities. Their drink menu is creative and oddly affordable. The menu itself has great variety. Make sure you tour the beautifully renovated interior. Service was...a bit slow, so be prepared to relax.More

The food was over cooked and had been sitting out before being served. From the appetizers to the main dish. It is a beautiful location but very underwhelming when there are so many great food options in Key West!

I think my problem with this restaurant was what I ordered. I ordered the short rib entrée and it was a very fatty cut of meat. The rest of the family enjoyed their food however. The fettuccine Alfredo was very good and the whole fish...was excellent. Service was wonderful. I waitresses very attentive. Great environment, outdoor seating. In the heart of Duval Street are excellent people watching.More
