“A Book So Much Better than its Cover”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Food and service were great; lighting was too dim, but we look better that way. This was a recommendation from our B&B and was also highly rated. It exceeded our expectations!

“A MUST for any Key West Visitor”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Seven Fish is a MUST for us each time we visit Key West. The food is always perfect. The service is great and the atmosphere is laid back and typical Key West.
They always have specials and change the menu seasonally. They serve wine and beer only (no liquor). The tables are close and it can be a bit hard to hear but worth it for the food.
Make reservations in ADVANCE as they are always booked.

Don't miss out on this restaurant when visiting Key West.
The best hands down over our 10 years of visiting every year.

“A negihbourhood gem...and yup I'm British so I can spell!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This place was a neighbourhood delight we could walk to from the disappointing Azul B & B. Simplicity, that hasn't been mucked about with by designers, allows good food to be served by charming and freindly staff.

The place is a tight fit, packs the diners in, however it feels intimate and not overcrowded and the staff work well in the confined space, the fish was certainly fresh and very tasty. The wine chilled like the atmosphere, the beer unusual, and our evening turned into a very enjoyable one.

Set in the neighbourhood setting, the small restaurant is we imagine a fine business and we would certainly recommend you try it.

Do book as it is VERY popular and deserves the success it is having. We would go back tomorrow!

“worth the effort to make reservations”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

When my friends heard that I was going to Key West for the first time, they said "make sure you eat at Seven Fish - make reservations". What a great recommendation. The restaurant is quite small, so reservations are indeed essential. We had the special appetizer of sushi, and I had the yellowtail prepared with a yellow curry sauce - magnificent. Save room for dessert!. The waitstaff are very professional and friendly.

“Trendy but honest cooking”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Attracted by the reviews and recommendations of locals we tried this restaurant. Whilst the food was interesting and tasty there was a certain degree of coldness from the staff and the layout food on the plate lacked finesse. Enjoyable but not the total experience we were expecting.

It's true that the owner seems to be stressed if you're late. We arrived 5 minutes late (which would be considered very punctual in Europe) and he flew out of the kitchen to check that we were the group he was expecting. However, there is no bar (to speak-of) to wait at if you're early!
