“Wonderful experience for our last night in Key West”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

My fiancé and I ate here on our last night in Key West. We were seated outside overlooking the harbor, which was great for us because we enjoyed listening and watching the locals go about their business. However the couple next to us complained about the ship docked below us that playing Aerosmith. *Please understand that the restaurant does play classy music but if you're seated outside you may hear music from the ships below.*

We started off with an appetizer of Florida lobster, escargot, and mushrooms, baked in a puff pastry and cream sauce. It was so delicious we contemplated ordering several more for dinner. I had the lobster thermidor, and he had the hogfish special. Both were excellent meals. The mixed drinks were very tasty and reasonably priced and this was the first restaurant where we ordered dessert. We had the tropical fruit sorbet and it was the perfect finish to a great dining experience. If you're not afraid of spending money on a meal, this is the place to go.

“Definitely FINE dining, and you pay for it.”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

I have eaten at some extremely high end restaurants and I appreciate the fine dining experience. I would agree with the other reviewers that it was a casual atmosphere and fine dining combined. Our party ate outside on the covered deck and the view of the dock was very nice. I had the sea scallops(AMAZING!!!) and my husband had fish(I cannot remember exactly what he ordered, but it was fabulous). Two other people in our party had the Maine lobster and we each tried some and were not impressed. If you want a fine dining experience, this is the place. I would stay away from the lobster though, go with something local!

“Lovely Evening”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

My wife has the house-favorite Lobster Tango Mango and she thought it was excellent; perfectly prepared. I tried the hogfish special with shrimp and also found it to be delicious.
