Description: Nine One Five is located in a magnificent Victorian house: circa 1850. Since opening in 2002 we have received national & international acclaim with 2 James Beard Foundation invitations. The food is simple fare prepared properly - no fuss just great food with an international wine list to back it up. We look forward to seeing you.

After being disappointed last week, we decide to come again to give another chance which will in fact be another disappointment.
We do not get the table requested as it was before because we have been loyal customers for years
The meat requested was cooking medium rare … the meat was at the limit of overcooked
The quality of the meat was not that great and looked like tenderized meat. It was not so bad the previous years
Slow and unhelpful service
Total lack of class and hygiene, the receptionist passes between the tables and coughs without putting her hand or arm in front of the mouth while passing
While in 99.9% of restaurants you are asked if you enjoyed the meal here this is no longer the case ... the cuisine is supposed to be enough good for all those tourists who flock ... the exceptional situation makes the life too easy
No longer the class of yesteryear
We leave disappointed ... the fries were excellent
We propose to test again the brother restaurant La Bagatelle ... the result is the same and even worse ... a family of restaurants on the decline

My group of 7 ate dinner here to celebrate a birthday. The building is beautiful and the food is even better! Service was great, too. The seating is tight, but worth it. We sat downstairs on the front porch. What a wonderful setting. Everyone at the table at something different, and everyone raved about their meal.

The shrimp fettuccine is absolutely amazing the fettuccine is homemade and the shrimp at Local Key West shrimp. The ahi tuna is also amazing. Service spotty and slow but worth it.

This is one of Key West's best. The restaurant space is wonderful, and the food is absolutely excellent. Don't miss the Soul Mama seafood soup! It's one of my favorite dishes on the island.

We had a great lunch at nine one five, the sister restaurant to First Flight, one of our favorites. Appetizers were quite interesting (warm olives?!) and the libations were very tasty. Pork tacos, chicken tequilas, clams and the burrata flatbread were all very tasty.
