“One of the BEST”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

The crab cake appetizer is wonderful and I've never had a seafood dish I didn't love! Year after year ... dinner only, 6-10PM ... they gotta be doing something right! Actually everything! Great staff!

“Not the ambiance I hoped for.”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Seven Fish was recommended by the staff at the Inn, so we chose it for a celebration dinner. Upon arrival, the place, rather sparse and ordinary in appearance, was crowded with diners, many rather loud and adding to our distraction. The food was good, we both had fish from the daily catch, and, except for one obnoxiously arrogant diner at the next table, inspecting his entree with a flashlight to complain, the overall experience was about what we'd expect in Key West.

“A tiny and delightful corner”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

We had a dellghtful time and a delicious meal at Seven Fish, a small and very crowded restaurant on a corner off the beaten track in Key West. Getting a reservation there is no easy task, but it's worth the trouble. Unsurprisingly, the specials are built around the local and fresh catches of the day: grouper, mahi, snapper. My wife had the grouper, and I had the snapper (the couple next to us had all three specials, and finished their plates!) Ours were as good as we tasted during our four nights in the area. For dessert, we shared a key lime cheesecake, which was okay but not spectacular, hence our "only" four-star rating. Otherwise, this place is highly recommended.

“Favorite restaurant in KW!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

The food was delicious and wonderfully prepared. We both had 2 of the fish specials and the fish taco appetizer; all were amazing. The servers there are very friendly and easy going, and take time to explain menu items. This is a very small place, rather crowded in a way, so be prepared. Recommend making a reservation. People on all sides of us were extremely happy with their meals. The place is neat and tidy. It's rather pricey but worth it for the quality and quantity. Definitely the best meal we've had in KW and we've been to many restaurants. Highly recommend!

We found out about Seven Fish from a frequent visitor to Key West who recommended getting off the beaten path of Duval Street. Well worth the short bike ride to Seven Fish, corner of Olivia and Elizabeth. The bartender Fred made our visit even better, being conversational and helpful about other places to visit. Our fish was fresh and simply prepared, no fussiness. The place is pretty small but intimate and lively. Some might say noisy but not in a bad way. Reservations are recommended but we lucked out and sat at the bar immediately, but even that is small (4 seats). This kind of place is right up my alley and we would definitely go back if in Key West again.
